CrownBet Bookmaker Review
In the space of 3 years, CrownBet has turned the former Beteasy brand into one of Australia’s most innovative and formidable online bookmakers. Not long after purchasing the Betezy bookmaking business, CEO Matt Tripp trumped the big bookies by securing the rights to be the AFL’s official betting partner. That initiative was followed by a strategic merger with betting exchange Betfair. Taken over by the publicly publicly owned corporation Crown Resorts Ltd, Beteasy soon became CrownBet; now the CrownBet business is benefiting from the financial impetus provided by its well-credentialled backer.
All of this is good news for existing and new members to the newly formed CrownBet operation. Existing members of CrownBet enjoy some great privileges, many of them free. Members can now watch live streaming of all AFL matches, benefit from the first bookmaker rewards program in Australia, and take their pick from the slew of sports betting promotions offered each week by the betting provider. If you’re not already a member, you can register a new account and take advantage of these member benefits, and in addition, possibly qualify for a welcome bonus. CrownBet is creating a level of member service like no other offered in Australia. With the recent investment in the Draftstars AFL fantasy game, the reasons to join CrownBet are more and more compelling by the day.
Live AFL streaming
CrownBet is the official wagering partner of the AFL. Through this alliance, CrownBet has been able to offer its members some exclusive deals. Now, all current members are able to stream every AFL match live on their smart phone or tablet device. Best of all, this service is absolutely free, even non-financial members can reap the rewards of this live vision deal.
The most sophisticated mobile app in the business
The Crownbet mobile betting application allows users to bet anywhere at anytime using the most advanced and efficient app in the Australian industry. Despite the importance of apps and mobile betting for members, some Australian bookies still have clunky and inefficient trading platforms. Not Crownbet. Users will be able to easily navigate the my account section of the app and quickly skip to the next betting event, or find a sport or racing event that takes their interest without any inconvenience.
CrownBet Weekly Promotions
Any fears that CrownBet wouldn’t continue to offer the best weekly betting bonuses have been quickly allayed by the new brand. Where Beteasy was the market leader in terms of providing value to its members, CrownBet is running the same number of promotions if not more! On any given weekend, there are up to 10 bonus bet promotions available to members. The promotions relate to all current sports and horse racing events. For example, there are AFL bonus bets available on every round of the 2015 season. The weekly promotions usually come in the form of free bets for betting on selected events, bonus bets for losing bets and cash back refunds.
The CrownBet Rewards program
Crown Resorts Ltd is flexing its muscle with its new bookmaking arm by offering members access to the Crown Rewards program, a unique offering to Australian punters. Membership of the club allows members to trade in rewards points for discounts and complimentary deals at Crown restaurants, hotels, shops and gaming operations. Every bet that is placed with CrownBet will earn points, in addition, points can be scored by participating in selected events and tipping competitions.
CrownBet Horse Racing Protest Offer
Horse racing fans won’t be ripped off with CrownBet. The online operator will ensure that any bet that loses as a result of an upheld protest will be paid out as if it were a normal win. The value of this product is not to be underestimated. Nothing worse than having a horse be first past the post only to lose the race in the stewards room. Sooner or later this promotion will pay off for members, it only takes a $50 bet at odds of $6 to return a $300 payout.
CrownBet Offers Best Tote Plus
Horse racing enthusiasts can enjoy the benefits of the Best Tote Plus product when they bet with CrownBet. Best Tote Plus pays out the highest dividend of the 3 national totes or the official on-course starting price. Having four dividends in your favour is better than one! Whilst it’s not as good an offering as Best of the Best, in our opinion, it still delivers good value to members.
