CrownBet CLOSED AUG 2018 Is Closed.
CrownBet is the biggest online bookmaker in the Australian market and it has been around for quite some time, albeit under different names. This sportsbook started out as Betezy back in 2005, then became BetEasy in 2014 and finally took the name of CrownBet in 2015 when the brand was taken over by Crown Resorts, one of Australia’s largest entertainment groups. In February 2018 CrownBet sold 62% stake to Canada's The Stars Group, which means the brand will further develop and probably acquire other bookmakers. The sportsbook is mainly focused on Australian sports, especially horse racing, but unfortunately live betting is restricted due to Australian regulations (you have to call them by phone before being able to bet live!).
Tip: Check out the promotions page, there are new ones added on a regular basis.
Placing your Bets
CrownBet offers a solid online betting platform, the website is as good as it gets and you can also use their mobile app, available both on Android and iOS. Australian sports take the top of the list when it comes to odds offered, but if you want to bet on other events it will be fairly easy to find your way to the desired lines on the website. Interesting fact: you can bet on surfing events at CrownBet, probably the only sportsbook in the world to offer odds on this sport.
There's a very low minimum deposit at this bookmaker, just 5 dollars, and there are various deposit methods accepted: Credit Card, POLi Internet Banking, Bank Deposit, BPAY, Bank Transfer, Cheque and even PayPal. The minimum withdrawal amount is also set at 5 dollars, regardless of the method that you want to employ. However, if you are outside Australia or New Zealand, you will have to be aware that there is a pretty thorough verification process that you have to go through before being able to become a member at this online bookmaker.
This online sportsbook is certainly one of the biggest players on the Australian market, and it could become a global brand very soon if they continue to expand as a result of the involvement of The Stars Group. Their odds cover pretty much every sporting event that could attract bets, including exotic sports like surfing. However, there are no e-sports lines available at the moment and there is no live chat support available.
With low minimum deposit and withdrawal amounts, this bookmaker can attract punters that just want to have some fun along with high-rollers that are willing to bet large sums of money. The rewards program is worth considering, and they also offer up to 100 dollars in deposit bonuses for new customers. They also offer live streaming of quite a few major sports events, including AFL, Soccer, Tennis and NBA matches.
