Australia.- Online gambling operator Betfair has increased its commission on customer winnings for NRL as the league prepares to return following the Covid-19 pandemic.

Betfair will once again allow betting on the Australian National Rugby League (NRL) after they suspendings the sport’s markets back in February.

All terms of the new partnership have not been disclosed, but bettors will now face a market base rate (MBR) of 10 per cent for the remainder of the 2020 season.

This marks an increase on the 6 per cent commission rate that had been in place for the 2019 season, outlining the difficulties for the company faced because of sport cancellations.

Betfair said: “While we are disappointed that a change to a 10 per cent MBR has become necessary, we do congratulate the NRL for the work it has undertaken in getting the NRL season up and running again.”
