Best Rugby Betting by Currency

Rugby betting by currency is an important issue which you should evaluate before selecting a sportsbook.  When an online sportsbook allows you to deposit, bet and withdraw all in your native currency, or a currency with which you already carry a balance at a bank or e-wallet service, you will avoid the fees and issues related to currency exchange.  

Currency exchange fees can be significant and are rarely transparent.  You can lose up to 5% of the value of the exchanged amount during your transaction.  The exchange house (whomever actually make the exchange be it a bank, e-wallet, Paypal, etc) will show you your posted rate of exchange.  This is the rate that you paid to buy the new currency amount.  What the exchange house won’t show you is the markup they charge from the day’s best rate of exchange.  Below I provide links to the pages I have developed for each of the currencies available at the best rugby betting services.  Not every service operates in each of these currencies, but every currency listed below is serviced by great sportsbooks that focus on providing a great rugby betting experience.

Australian Dollar

The Australian Dollar is a widely accepted currency by top international sportsbooks.  However, Australian legislation has determined that Australians must play with Australian licensed sportsbooks.  There are actually sportsbooks that allow people to play with an Australian Dollar balance but are not based in Australia.  I show you which top sportsbooks both accept Australian registrants and allow play in Australian Dollars.

British Pound

As Britain is the world’s most developed sports betting market, the pound is the most accepted currency.  Thus if you are looking to bet in the pound, you will have your free choice of every major sportsbook.  I show you which of these offer the best rugby betting offerings.

Canadian Dollar

There is no shortage of sportsbooks that accept Canadian Dollars directly.  In fact, all of the top overall rugby sportsbooks accept this currency plus several that specialize in the Canadian market.  Thus if you are Canadian, you will be able to select the rugby betting option that matches your needs and preferences, catering to exactly the manner in which you’d like to proceed with regard to banking choices.


If you find yourself somewhere across continental Europe or elsewhere and hope to use the Euro to fund your sportsbook account to bet on rugby, you have no shortage of options as nearly every major sportsbook accepts Euros.  I show you which of these also offer the best rugby betting offerings.

New Zealand Dollar

Although New Zealand is an extremely small market there is an option to bet in New Zealand Dollars.  Your choice is very limited but the option offered is arguably the best overall sportsbook for rugby betting purposes, so you’re in luck.

South African Rand

Several of the top rugby betting services offer South African Rand betting accounts. If you are located in South Africa or anywhere in the world and hold a balance in the Rand, you will be able to wager on rugby with some of the most reputable sportsbooks in the World with unsurpassed rugby options.

US Dollar

The US has become a highly restricted sports betting market due to US legislation.  However, the US Dollar is one of the most popular sportsbook currencies since so many non-US citizens use the US dollar themselves and hold bank or e-wallet balance.  As such it is very easy to select a sportsbook that accepts US dollars.  The issue of restriction comes with regard to where the sportsbook customer is based.  If outside the US, there will be no issue.  If inside the US, sportsbook options are limited as so few companies accept US players.  I show you the best options for US Dollar rugby betting whether in or outside the US.

Bitcoin or Ethereum

If you are looking for the ability to bet directly in BTC or ETH among other cryptocurrencies, finding a reputable operator can be hard. Look to this resource on the top crypto bookies for direct betting options, not just crypto account funding options

Unbiased Lists & Research

Sportsbook review sites tend to to list every company that they have researched.  In essence, the review sites are simply hoping to trade on a brand name, that you’ll recognize a name or logo and click through to start playing. I’m not interested in that approach.

If a company fails to meet my standards, they do not warrant inclusion in my lists.  I examine each service with regard to their reputation, record of fairness (cancelled bets), timely & free withdrawals, the number of available  banking methods, use of secure technology, use of advanced technology for mobile and live betting in-play.  

Above all of this, I want to make sure the sportsbook pays proper attention to rugby as other sports get far more.  Rugby fans want to be able to log on and view the odds for next big match so they can place their bet.  Each listed site ensures this is possible for their players.  As a result of the above criteria, you might notice some famous brands are missing as they fail to pay rugby the proper attention.

About the order of each list

I do not rank sportsbooks in order of any preference.  They are listed in alphabetical order with numbers ordered after letters.  I would be extremely comfortable registering and betting on rugby with any of these companies, however there are differences in their offerings.

Read the brief summaries, browse by country, by currency and read the reviews to see what is right for you.  I also provide some helpful articles under the ‘more resources’ header in the navigation bar to provide some direction if you’re not sure how to begin.
