Internet sports bookmaking is allowed in New South Wales as long as certain guidelines are followed. Applicants must first obtain a license/registration as a bookmaker from one of the three NSW controlling bodies for racing and then must apply for a sports betting authority through the Office of Racing.

Sports bookmakers can be authorized to accept bets seven days a week and 24 hours per day, however the prerequisite for this authorization is a AUD $100,000 dollar guarantee from the NSW Bookmakers' Co-Operative Ltd.

Finally, applicants must obtain an electronic betting authority, which may be issued under the Racing Administrative Act 1998.
