Great range of sports to place bets against
This app is compatible with the majority of Android smartphones and tablets.
Recently re-branded from BetEasy, CrownBet is a bookmaker with a strong focus on the Australian market, offering only accounts in Australian Dollars, decimal odds and support in the English language. CrownBet is also an approved betting partner with Tennis Australia, Cricket Australia, NRL and the AFL, so it is easy to see why it is enjoying great success as the fastest growing bookmaker in Australia, signing up 110,000 new customers within the last fiscal year.
As might be expected after a re-brand, the CrownBet mobile app has been designed to be fresh and innovative while remaining effective and simple to use. Even better, it is very quick to use as well as being incredibly reliable, which is very important when betting on the move. The menus have been thoughtfully located out of the way of the main screen so less scrolling is required and there is better visibility of the displayed odds. Menus can just be dragged down, making them really simple to access in order to find the market you are looking for. Although the interface is pretty user friendly, anyone who finds that they are struggling to understand any aspect of it can use the helpful integrated Help Coach facility to rapidly find an answer to their query or problem.
As bookmaker margins are important, punters will be pleased to note that the CrownBet average bookmaker’s margin is 4.9%, roughly equal to the median, which is good news. The app also offers a reasonable selection of sporting markets, and while there is nowhere near the breadth offered by the gaming giants like Bet365, the liquidity has improved over recent years making CrownBet a viable option as a stand-alone membership.
While there is a good choice of sports on offer, CrownBet is one of the best options for those with a particular interest in rugby or football as there are hundreds of markets on each match. Those who would like to take a punt on more niche sports will also not be disappointed by the selection on offer and there are also plenty of international markets to choose from. It is also worth noting that CrownBet is the official wagering partner of the AFL for the next few years.
CrownBet excels in its racing market, with thoroughbred racing available across a range of both domestic and international venues and greyhound racing available across New Zealand and Australia. A variety of bets can be placed on most races including Win/Place, Exacta, Quinella, First Four and Trifecta as well as quaddies, trebles and doubles. Unfortunately, Australians can no longer participate in live online betting through the mobile app due to current legislation, and live bets can now only be placed via telephone.
The minimum online wagers on offer through CrownBet are among the lowest in the industry, making this app a great choice for newcomers to the betting scene who are unwilling to risk large sums. The minimum amount for a wager is just $0.01, which is unusually low. The minimum amount that can be paid into an account is also very low at just $10, and with just a $5 limit on withdrawals, receiving your winnings is quicker and easier than ever.
Punters always appreciate a variety of methods by which they can pay money into their account and action withdrawals, and they won’t be disappointed with the selection on offer from CrownBet. As well as offering all of the traditional methods like bank transfers, credit cards and cheques, customers can also use BPAY, POLi and Skrill to deposit funds and withdrawals can be made by either bank transfer or through Skrill. Customers who would benefit from a betting credit facility will be pleased to discover that they can apply to CrownBet for credit on their account.
As the biggest 100% Australian owned bookmaker, CrownBet has worked really hard at producing an innovative and user-friendly mobile app that perfectly suits the needs of its users. Its stylish modern interface is combined with an excellent betting selection which now allows this bookmaker to compete with many of the big overseas companies that have now launched in the Australian betting market. Offering plenty of markets to choose from, this bookmaker is a great choice for punters with a broad spectrum of sporting interests, and there are enough payment and deposit methods to satisfy most customers. Thanks to the incredibly low account deposit amounts and low minimum wagers, the CrownBet Android app is an excellent choice for beginners as well as more experienced punters.
