In a short period of time, CrownBet has established them as the premier online bookmaker here in Australia. You can thank James Packer’s huge bank balance and a raft of exclusive betting products that no other bookie in the country can compete with for that.
You may remember BetEasy? Well CrownBet bought them out back in 2014 and transformed them into the betting goliath they are today. Thanks to their alignment with Crown casino, they boast exclusive products such as CrownBet Rewards and Live AFL Vision, just to name a few.

Website Layout and Usability
First things first, we want to point out the CrownBet website has gone for a very basic feel to their website and we absolutely LOVE it.
It looks fresh, fun, and most importantly, it is easy to navigate and super fast to load. Unlike many of the other online bookies out there, they have not littered their website with flash images, or shoved betting offers in your face.
You can tell immediately that CrownBet have put a lot of work into making their website as easy to use as possible. We also love little additions such as the jockey/runner/trainer search feature at the top, the all new Roll The Dice feature and their quirky blog known as The Call.
Just little things like that, plus the nice colour scheme really enhance your betting experience. Go and check out CrownBet.com.au now for yourself and see if you agree.
Also worth mentioning is the Bet Slip. You can easily add and remove selections with ease, or convert single bets to multibets with the click of one mouse button. The CrownBet website has made it extremely easy to do that.
Perhaps the biggest selling point for having an account with these guys is CrownBet Rewards. There is simply nothing else like this on the Australian bookmaker scene.
Once you have registered a CrownBet Rewards login, you can start earning points for every single bet you place. Then in turn, you can redeem those rewards for some damn cool prizes.
Earning points is simple. For every $1 you placed on Fixed Win, Place and Exotics, you will earn 1 point. You will also earn 1 point per $5 you wager on Best Tote, Top Fluc and Best Place bets. Plus 1 point per $2 on all other racing bet types.
Sports punters will earn 1 point per $5 stake on any sports event offered, while you will get more bang for buck betting on multibets with 1 point per $1 stake.
You can redeem your points for some brilliant prizes ranging from free bets, to accommodation and dining options at Crown Casino, all the way to sports memorbiliar and even tickets to events such as the Superbowl or Kentucky Derby!
CrownBet Rewards is literally the product that has both highroller and smaller punters alike flocking to bet here. No other bookie can compete with this product in Australia.
Horse Racing Betting
Let’s face it, to be competitive on the Australian bookies scene, you need to have a good product offering for horse racing betting. Luckily, CrownBet has delivered in spades in this area.
Best Tote Plus is their flag ship product and it is available on EVERY single Australian thoroughbred race, every single day.
That means you are receiving a payout equal to either the Best Tote dividend from the three Australian Totes, or the official on-course Starting Price; whichever is higher. Seriously, why bet anywhere else with this product alone?
They also boast a large range of Exotic Bet options, so that includes Flexi, Boxed or Stand-Out bet types from quinellas, trifectas, first fours and quaddies for example.
We also love the addition of free form guides and racing tips on the CrownBet App and their desktop website, along with jockey silks and other kind of stats. It is just a convenient way of betting all from the one window.
But perhaps one of the best features is the ability to stream live horse racing from all metropolitan and provincial races in Victoria. This addition has really boosted their service to the next level.
Products and Features
AFL Live Streaming
This is yet another CrownBet exclusive. Given they are the official betting partners of the AFL, it has allowed them to secure the exclusive rights to be able to allow AFL live streaming.
Best of all, this will not cost you a cent. You can stream every single AFL home & away match, along with all finals matches and the Grand Final. How good is that!?
There are not many things more annoying than loading up on a 6-leg multibet, only to get stitched up in the final leg as your team blows a big lead in the final quarter.
Thankfully you now have control over your bet with Cash Out. You can cash out of you bet at any time now, guaranteeing yourself a return and avoiding the dreaded final leg failing.
Credit Betting Facility
Have you found a great bet, but are stuck for money waiting for your next pay cheque to clear? Fear no more, as CrownBet offers a Credit Betting Facility.
Register yourself a Credit Betting Facility account and you will have access to credit whenever you need it. But be warned, it is like a credit card, so you will need to pay it back and read the terms closely.
The CrownBet Cash Card is a product we adore. It is basically an EFTPOS card that is linked to your betting account, meaning you can access funds in a matter of seconds.
You can withdraw funds at any ATM, or even use your betting funds to pay for groceries or fill up your car with petrol, you name it. It’s very handy if you are betting on the go with their betting app and want to withdraw funds instantly.
Free Bets and Promotions
CrownBet are very well known for offering punters great money back specials. They probably offer more than any other bookie - just take a look at their promotions page and you'll see.
That's not it though! If you don't have an account yet, you can take advantage of a huge signup offer. Register at Crown today and they will match your first bet amount fully, upto a total of $500...
So if you join and bet $500 - you can continue betting with $1,000!
The CrownBet App is fantastic, and we are not just saying that. We have reviewed all the betting apps to do our reviews, and this is the one app that we keep coming back to use.
Some of the key features are the ability for stream live races and AFL live streaming from within the app. Horse racing punters will love the ease of placing bets, plus the ability to drill down form and stats for each horse and jockey.
You’ll be able to access your CrownBet Rewards account from within the mobile app, meaning you can check your points balance and redeem prizes whenever you wish.
Quick Bets and Multi Bets are a great way to get bets on fast, plus you can deposit and withdraw funds within seconds. They have also invested in the latest in security technology, so you can bet in the knowledge that your funds are safe and secure.
