International wagering company 'The Stars Group' made the move to acquire both the Australian branch of William Hill as well as CrownBet early in 2018 with the intention of merging the two to rebrand the formely popular Australian company SportingBet. However, in late July of 2018 it was announced that the two massive Australian betting companies would in fact be merging to recreate the 'BetEasy' brand, which was the original version of CrownBet. BetEasy launched in August of 2018 and seemlessly transferred all William Hill and CrownBet members into one easy to use 'BetEasy' account. We take a look at the BetEasy website and it's features and promotions in our full review below.
In the transition from the days of Crown Resorts owning and operating CrownBet to the newly formatted BetEasy, one important feature that members have lost is the ability to use their Crown rewards points at Crown resorts itself. In terms of the actual layout and betting interface, BetEasy has kept a similar design to the old CrownBet with some improvements. BetEasyt 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, BetEasy 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 BetEasy, like the names suggests, quite easy to use.
Like many Australian sports betting sites, BetEasy 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. Another key feature that will disappear with the rebranding of BetEasy, however, is the ability to watch live AFL games through the CrownBet app, which is unfortunate.
CrownBet recently announced a partnership with SkyRacing, and for the moment it looks like this feature will transfer over to BetEasy, meaning that all BetEasy members can now view both Sky Racing channels on their computer, phone or tablet! BetEasy integrates a rewards system which sees punters accumulate reward points that can be redeemed for bonus bets at BetEasy, a range of vouchers and sporting event tickets, any CrownBet or William Hill rewards will be automatically transferred over.
BetEasy – Positives
* Some of the best and biggest promotions around
* Lots of markets, great horse racing offerings
* Unique and easy to navigate betting interface
* Excellent rewards program
* Live Sky Racing Channels
* Instant access to winning with the BetEasy ATM Card
BetEasy – Negatives
* Promos are all bonus bets, not cash back
* No longer affiliated with Crown Resorts, meaning rewards points can no longer be used there.
* No longer affiliated with the AFL, meaning no liver AFL games
