BetEasy has gone through a few changes during its lifespan. They were founded in 2014 as the BetEasy brand after the purchase of BetEzy. Later in the year, they transitioned to the CrownBet brand. In 2018 The Stars Group bought up a huge ownership percentage and turned the operation back into the BetEasy brand. They have their licence in Australia with the Northern Territory and are governed by the South Australian Responsible Gambling Code of Practice Pre-Commitment Limits.
Available Bets & Features
There is plenty of market variety to dig through at BetEasy with a main focus existing on a big racing section. There is domestic and international racing and they are the only operator in Australia who provide streams from Sky Racing. There is solid coverage in the BetEasy sportsbook on big foreign markets such as the English Premier League, NHL and MLB along with the domestic markets like the Big Bash Cricket and NRL.
Their quick bet feature means that you can strike a bet in as little as three clicks. Make your selection, enter a stake and confirm the bet all in one place without having to navigate away from the market that you are on. Quick betting is a theme at BetEasy who have a Multi Express tool to quickly build wagers with as well without getting lost in submarkets.
BetEasy also runs a rewards club where things like Bonus Bets, Bet Boosts and Deposit Offers can be taken advantage of. There is plenty of coverage all round in the sportsbook including ESports and things like Lawn Bowls, Ironman and Yachting to complement the major sporting areas. Same game multi can be created as well on certain events.
There is a Live Centre available at BetEasy. Placing an online wager on a live event is not legal in Australia, so any live offering that is seen will need to be called in. The coverage of live events on the BetEasy website does reach across a variety of sports, while some impressive numbers were on show when it came to the number of different markets available for a given sporting event.
An example was 84 markets on a live ATP Tennis match and commonly over 40 on soccer matches. BetEasy provides live streams from the NBA including the playoffs and Finals. Along with that, there is live streaming of Sky Racing channels. BetEasy has a partnership deal with sports streaming service Kayo and BetEasy customers can get exclusive offers for that service.
Odds Value & Margins
Margins change so much with bookmakers and to size things up at BetEasy, different sports and the margins that were running were looked at. Examples of which can be seen below. The bookmaker margin on English Premier League football did come across as a little bit high, but the tennis returns were good in comparison to others in the industry.
NRL Match: 5.91%
English Premier League Match: 7.57%
WTA Tennis: 5.62%
BetEasy services operate very well on mobile platforms. From their website there are links to get an app for either iOS or Android, depending on what you need. The apps offer very good access to the entire sportsbook and delivers a quick platform for racing. It is a state of the art interface that they use and all features, such as promotions can be accessed as well. While you can access their mobile website, it’s nowhere near as quick and efficient as the dedicated BetEasy Apps.
Apple Pay can be used as a deposit method to get funds in your account at BetEasy. Deposits can be made directly through the app or on their website. There is a range of preferred deposit methods from credit/debit card, PayPal, POLi, Prepaid Card, BPAY to Bank Transfer. Most methods are instant funding, while banking options will take longer for both deposits and withdrawals. Withdrawals can take up to three days to get to a bank. E-Wallets will provide a quicker option, while there is a BetEasy Mastercard (a prepaid Mastercard) and you can instantly transfer funds to and from your account to your card. The card can be used at ATMs to withdraw cash.
