CrownBet Review

Review of CrownBet.com.au

Among the multitude of online betting sites that entertain Australian punters, only a handful compare to the all-inclusive services of CrownBet. Although it was licensed in the Northern Territory, CrownBet operates from offices based in Sydney. With its launch in 2005, owned then by A. Kay bookmaker, CrownBet was originally branded Betezy. In 2014, Betezy underwent a re-branding process when its assets were purchased by Matthew Trip and it became known as BetEasy. Following a 2015 joint venture with Crown Resorts, BetEasy was re-branded again and finally arrived at its current name, “CrownBet”. With its focus on the Australian market, CrownBet has wasted no time in securing an influx of traffic. Here’s our detailed review on CrownBet. Read on to decide if it’s the right fit for your online gambling needs.

Website, Betting Types and the Markets

The CrownBet website is designed thoughtfully, primarily keeping the needs of its users in mind. The layout is divided into three basic columns that continue throughout the site. On your left you can find a menu for Sports, Racing and quick shortcuts. The betting slip is placed to your right and in the centre you can find the display for markets and odds. You can filter your selected sports, with the help of “Filters” available on top. The betting slip has a modern feel where you can make multiple selections, review an automatic display of potential returns for any stake amount you enter and even toggle the display. The site is nothing out of the ordinary, however, it gets the job done by being packed with features and contains few distractions. The markets on offer are exciting for both sports and racing enthusiasts. You can check for Thoroughbred, Harness and Greyhound racing. Furthermore, there are Jockey Challenges and Racing Futures for your added interest. Sports fans can choose between the obvious NRL, NHL and NBA. But markets also cover boxing, cricket, MMA, soccer, tennis and a variety of other sports.

Minimum Bets

As per the practice of all the online betting sites, the amount for a minimum bet accepted at CrownBet depends upon the form of betting a punter chooses. When betting through the CrownBet website, you are required to make a minimum bet of $0.50. Single or multiple racing bets made through the telephone accept a minimum of $50. For single or multiple sports bets, punters need to wager a minimum of $20.

Deposit Methods

For any method of banking you prefer, the minimum amount to deposit is $5 at CrownBet. You can choose credit cards. While CrownBet does not charge fees for them, your bank or financial institution might have a different policy. Direct deposit your funds into the CrownBet account through POLi or make a Bank Deposit/Transfer to the CrownBet account. Bank transactions are processed gradually and can take up to 48 hours. Accepted methods also include Bpay, Cheques and PayPal. The minimum amount for cashing out winnings is also $5. You can choose between Electronic Funds Transfer or Telegraphic Transfer. For both deposits and withdrawals, CrownBet requires that customers complete ID verification or they risk account suspension. Not wanting to be left behind, CrownBet has brought forward a competitive Prepaid Visa Card for its members, known as the “CrownBet Card”. It allows you to make a transfer of funds from your CrownBet account on to the card itself. Funds can be instantly accessed at ATMs throughout Australia, Visa payWave or at terminals for EFTPOS.

Promotions

If there’s any reason to give away free bets, CrownBet will issue you one in bonus. Crownbet has had incredible promotions for signing up, loyalty rewards and competitions on social media. Let us start by reviewing the wonderful Bonus Bet promotion for when you sign up for the first time at CrownBet. Create your account and make a deposit of up to $50, CrownBet will grant you $150 first deposit match bonus bet. You can rake in up to $200 in total just by making your first deposit. Just remember the validity of a bonus bet is 30 days after it has been credited to you. If you place a winning wager through your bonus bet, you are entitled to your winnings only. First you need to turn the winnings over once at odds of $1.50 or higher. Luckily, you are not required to turn over your entire winnings at once; you can turn them over in your preferred increments as long as they meet the minimum bet requirement. Promotions for sports betting run across various sports: soccer, NRL, NHL and the NBA, for example. CrownBet’s Reward program is a glorious loyalty scheme in line with those offered by premier online betting sites. Punters are rewarded for their activity on CrownBet with an option to redeem points for various discounts and privileges at CrownBet bars, hotels and restaurants. The offer extends to AFL experiences like dinners, discounts in membership, tickets and exclusive final packages. Alternately, you can redeem your points for bonus bets on the CrownBet website also. For punters who prefer betting on racing events, the promotions are most certainly glorious too. You can enjoy your race and winnings, regardless of protests, thanks to the Protest Payout. Similarly, despite wrong calls, CrownBet ensures your races continue being fun with their Fair-Go Refunds. You can also have a go at the $ 20,000 Cash Box held every Thursday night.

Live Streams and Betting

CrownBet provides a wonderful medium, “Live Vision”, which is dedicated to streaming select racing events. If you’re interested in Victorian Thoroughbred racing (both metropolitan and provincial), you can stream it on Live Vision. Look up the advertised race time, your event will begin streaming about 3 minutes before and continue just for a while after the interim results are announced. Aside from being accessible to desktop users with flash-supporting browsers, CrownBet brings the Victorian races to punters’ mobiles by streaming directly onto the Safari browsers for iPhone users and through a third party app on Android. The line-up for live sports betting at CrownBet is limited to AFL, NCAA, NFL, NHL and NRL events. However, you will find favourable odds. In accordance with the Government’s legislation “Interactive Gambling Act”, Live Betting is only permitted through telephone. Fortunately, CrownBet offers a dedicated telephone line available 24/7, so you have the ability to place bets on events held at all hours.

Customer Service

When betting online, it is certainly possible for punters to get caught in a difficult position or they may need help in some area. In this case, you will find CrownBet has an excellent setup for Customer Support. You can send them an email directly through the contact form present on the website or at support@CrownBet.com.au. Alternately, you can call them on 13 2769, the phone lines are open for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Plus, they have a Live Chat feature that lets you contact a professional customer service representative who can help you with your queries, in real time. If you prefer, you can scan the FAQ section of the site which has answers to almost everything ranging from the ownership of CrownBet to redemption of Bonus Bets and applying for credit facility. Lastly, you can also consult the Betting Info and Member Info sections for support on subjects such as CrownBet Card, Bonus Bets ID verification, and more.

  2. Dan says:

    Rude customer service and no multi insurance. William Hill much better

  3. Alojamiento says:

    This CrownBet review will show you some of the amazing deals they are offering to both new members and existing ones. They want to get your business, and they want to keep you as a member after you have joined, so they are offering some truly amazing incentives.

  4. David Faulkner says:

    Customer service needs to improve

  5. David Faulkner says:

    If you don’t want to give your credit card details they make it difficult to deposit funds, just as bad as the rest of these betting agencies and if you can actually deposit funds into your account what about easy access to your winnings? the industry needs to be regulated more to protect the small punters.

    Don’t be fooled. I started earning points and built nicely to 400,000 points….THEN…..they restrict your betting to small amounts and remove you from ALL promotions making earning points a snails pace. (No points back offers)
    Its a complete CON.
    I reckon you would have to lose half a million dollars to get a $20k trip to Monaco. Only perennial losers and victims will be allowed to earn that many points by Crownbet. Winning punters are obviously not welcome.
