NOTE: In August of 2018, CrownBet merged with William Hill in a rebranding of BetEasy and therefore no longer exists! You can now see the full BetEasy review page here!
CrownBet launched in March of 2015 as a rebranding of BetEasy and in 2018, the majority share of the company was acquired by international gambling company 'The Stars Group'. CrownBet is one of the newest and fastest-growing Australian sports betting websites, with new management and former Sportsbet head honcho Matthew Tripp at the helm. CrownBet is set to quickly make waves and plant themselves firmly in the Australian online sports wagering market after the recent announcement of the successful aquisition of William Hill Australia. Find out more about CrownBet, and their excellent CrownBet Rewards Program, in our full CrownBet review.
Those who have maybe never even heard of the site will no doubt be quickly introduced to CrownBet.com.au through their early aggressive marketing or simply because of their high profile CEO in Tripp and the partnership with Crown Resorts - the owners of Crown Casino in Melbourne and Perth, along with many casinos around the world. As we mentioned above, CrownBet have since been bought by 'The Stars Group' so Unfortunately, as of May 1st 2018, CrownBet members will no longer be able to use their reward points at Crown resorts.
In terms of the actual layout and betting interface, CrownBet have certainly improved their user experience in a short time, with more developments and features in the works. CrownBet is quite a simple and effective layout to use and makes it easy enough for punters to place a bet on whatever market they want.
As you can see in the image above, CrownBet utilises a two-menu system, with quick links and account info on the top menu and left menu featuring all the detail information about betting markets. Once the markets on the left are clicked, more info appears in the middle of the screen, while the betting slip is featured on the far right. This is a very familiar layout and makes CrownBet, like the names suggests, quite easy to use.
Like many Australian sports betting sites, CrownBet seem to have plenty of focus on horse racing and related betting, though there is still enough of a focus on general sports betting markets to please everyone. Through their partnership with the AFL, there is also a huge amount of AFL promotions and features including the ability for CrownBet customers to live stream AFL through the 'live vision' product.
CrownBet have also recently announced a partnership with SkyRacing, meaning that all CrownBet members can now view both Sky Racing channels on their computer, phone or tablet, making it infinately easier for racing punters using CrownBet! CrownBet continues to constantly improve with the addition of the CrownBet Rewards system which sees punters accumulate reward points that can be redeemed for bonus bets at CrownBet, a range of vouchers and sporting event tickets.
