An introduction to Crownbet
Crownbet.com.au began its journey as BetEzy.com.au in 2005.
Since then the company has swapped hands and changed names and owners more times than I’ve had hot meals. But in early 2015 James Packer’s Crown Resorts and leading virtual bag man Matthew Tripp teamed up to bring Australia CrownBet.com.au. The Aussie punting scene hasn’t been the same since.
CrownBet has built a robust reputation quickly and have become one of the most popular bookmakers on Aussie shores. They are known for being the official wagering partner of the AFL and for a great coverage of horse racing and any other sport based out of Australia.
Crown Resorts announced at the end of August 2017 it was branching out into lotto, with its bookmaker business Crownbet to run it. However this was a short lived venture and soon after with increased regulatory pressure the company opted out of the Lotto space.
So what is CrownBet? What do they have to offer the average Aussie punter? And what sets them apart from the ever-expanding pack of online bookmakers in Australia?

CrownBet also offers Protest Payout’s on all Australian horse and harness races. This means if you have a win bet and your horse is first past the post but loses in an upheld protest, CrownBet will still pay your bet as a winner.

CrownBet is easy to access via your desktop or laptop and has been made simple to access on the go (mobile or tablet) thanks to CrownBet’s apps available on the iOS app store or for Android.
If you have a mobile that doesn’t operate with either of these systems you can still have a punt on the go by going to the CrownBet mobile site through your mobile device’s internet explorer.
Crownbet iOS & Android Apps
If you have ever visited the mobile site of Crownbet.com.au you will find that the app is very similar but it has a bulked up and faster interface. The added features of the app make it well worth adding to your mobile device, or tablet.
You will enjoy the ability to store deposit methods and other personal information in the app, meaning you don’t have to punch it every time, as you would if you used the mobile site.
The navigation is also much better in the mobile app, with several extra menus that are part of the download.
To take advantage of the Crownbet sign up offer on a mobile device visit Crownbet.com.au, you will then be prompted to download the app after completing the process.
A short history has not stopped Australians embracing Crownbet. With the backing of Crown Resorts and the Tripp family (who founded Sportsbet) it was going to take the public little convincing. Their vast popularity is obviously due to their generous sign up bonuses, promotions, great odds and the ease of use.
