CrownBet are one of the best in the business in Australia and their unique app is something totally different to what the competition offers. A lot of punters are price sensitive and from the selected markets we viewed, CrownBet were very competitive on price so from that perspective they really are one of the big boys. We love the live streaming of AFL and Sky Racing and if punters want information, there's plenty to be found via their info portal. With a bunch of innovative and exciting betting options CrownBet provide a good overall punting experience.
Overall rating: 5 out of 5.
CrownBet is a rarity in the Australian wagering space in that they pretty much entered the market as one of the major players. This was mainly due to the pulling power of the original partners, prominent Australian wagering identity Matt Tripp, and billionaire James Packer. They initially founded CrownBet after the pair were involved with BetEasy (Tripp) and Betfair (Packer) respectively, with the partnership taking effect in 2015. Together, they built a very competitive bookmaking business that holds its own on pricing, promotions and star power.Crown Resorts sold their 62% stake in CrownBet in early 2018 to the Canadian owned The Stars Group with Tripp retaining the other portion.
