Crownbet Betting Review
This is a horse racing betting review for crownbet.com.au Crownbet was re-branded from Betezy the website was launched with a completely new design it was a welcome change. Matt Tripp was the catalyst for these changes and his aim with CrownBet is to take on punters which was a welcome change to the Australian betting industry.
In 2017 their website and mobile app package is up there with the leaders in the industry. Changes to the interface has resulted in a superior betting experience. It now features search menu, fully integrated form, live streaming and race replays and a rebranding of their promotions to the Crownbet rewards program
Crownbet is chiefly attempting to deliver a great wagering experience in Australia and while still aiming to bet all clients including winning punters which is a refreshing approach from other corporate bookmakers in Australia.
Crownbet Racing Betting Products
Their racing product is now up to scratch with more bet options, better odds and they are quicker to set up markets on mid-week and Saturday races.
One of their key differentiators Crownbet have is that they are one of the only bookmakers to offer replays on Australian thoroughbred meetings. They have done a deal with Racing Victoria to make all Victorian meetings available to be replayed on demand.
Fixed price betting is available on all Australian thoroughbred meetings.
Best Tote or SP:
Racing punters can take advantage from the Best of 3 Totes or Starting Price, with CrownBet’s Best Tote Plus product, This allows the punter to get the highest paying tote from the three main Australian totes or the official price provided by the Australian Pricing Network, whichever is higher. This give horse racing bettors a great advantage to beat the bookmakers.

Website, Betting Types and the Markets
The Crownbet website can be clunky at times. The betting slip functionality is very typical of a modern betting website interface. You can add tone selection to the slip you have the option of submitting single, multi and/or extra multi’s (such as Doubles, Trebles, Yankee, Lucky15, etc.). When you enter your stake potential returns are automatically displayed.
Overall, it isn’t the prettiest website design, but the CrownBet website a lot better than the previous Betezy website. The new setup is chock full of features and intuitive and fast to use.
Crownbet App Review
Crownbet app for iOS and Android can take some time to get used to. The functionality is unlike most Australian bookies and has some different navigational steps. Once you get your head around it the quickness and intuitive nature of the app can save plenty of time when trying to get that last minute bet on!
Crownbet Racing Form
