About Neds Australia
The influx of Aussie bookmakers continues with the launch of Neds, a Queensland based online sports betting start-up run by former Ladbrokes CEO Dean Shannon! Neds is serious about their Australian entry, with the Australian Financial Review suggesting Shannon is willing to splash a massive $10 million on the marketing launch of his new operation during the Spring Carnival.
Although Neds offer some great features including their exclusive Bet Boost (inflate your stake) and Multi Builder, the number one stand-out is the speed of their site – it’s quick!
