CrownBet Review - Rewards & Race Replays from AFL Partner Sportsbook

If you follow the AFL, you will have most likely have seen CrownBet’s branding at one point or another, as they are the official partner of the league. The Australian bookmaker has a very efficient website and app, which makes placing a bet very easy.

On the left side of the website, there are quick links to the most popular markets that week, while just below this section, there is an A-Z of the sports the bookmaker accepts bets on, so punters should never be more than a few clicks away from finding their specific market.

CrownBet’s offering of horse racing is very impressive, as not only is every daily meeting in the Australia priced up and available to bet on, but the operator also allows you to have a punt on the horse racing and greyhound action from the UK, which means you should never be stuck for a punt late into the evening.

All of the major sports are on the site, including American football, golf, soccer and tennis. The site is kept up to date so you will always find the latest events in the respective sport. If you enjoy having a bet on an ante-post market, betting is available well in advance, even if the event is over 12 months away.

CrownBet also offers an in-play betting service as part of its live section. Depending on which events are currently taking place, this page should be filled with an array of markets. With all of the action on the major sports covered in running, if you miss the start of the event you can get involved once it has started.

In the top right section of each page, you can see your bet slip once you add selections into it. Multiples are available and you can bet each-way on horse racing and in outright markets across their sports markets.

Odds & Promotions

When you sign up to the site, you can create a CrownBet Rewards membership. This will allow you to earn points every time you place a bet and enter competitions. As a CrownBet Rewards member, you will also be afforded certain privileges, such as hotel discounts, restaurant offers and much more.

It’s worth keeping an eye out every week on the promotions page for refund offers, bonus points and enhancements on the AFL and other major events. These promotions are available to new and existing customers.

CrownBet is the only bookmaker to offer race replays at all Victorian thoroughbred meetings. This means that if you miss your race or just want to watch it back as a form guide, you can log onto your account and do so for free.

One of the assurances that CrownBet makes on the promotion page is that if something is not right, they will issue a Fair Go Refund. If you follow CrownBet on Twitter, you can get an idea of some of the things they have refunded all stakes on in the past.

If you want to place a multiple bet on CrownBet’s website, they have a feature called Multi Express, which makes the process so much easier. This is particularly useful for horse racing, as the upcoming races are all listed in time order for you, so if you want to place a bet on the afternoon’s racing that day, everything is listed on one page. The Multi Express feature also allows you to switch between sports for your bet. All your returns are listed so you know exactly how much you will win off your accumulator before placing it.

CrownBet appears to be very competitive with their odds across all their sports. They are top price in certain markets, which means you won’t find better prices elsewhere on that selection.

Player Security & Safety

There are a number of different ways to bet safely with CrownBet. You can deposit directly into your account from a Mastercard or Visa card. PayPal, POLi and Bpay are also all accepted payment methods.

CrownBet is licenced and regulated by the Northern Territory Government of Australia, therefore, you can rest assured that you are protected under strict rules for your security as a customer on the site.

If you are unsure as to how to place a bet on their site, CrownBet provides support videos that talk you through all the markets it offers and how to place a bet. The support section is complete with a FAQ and live chat facility, which is operated 24/7, so if you do have any questions or concerns, you can seek help straight away.

CrownBet is one of the few bookmakers to offer a credit facility. In order to apply for this, though, a credit check will be taken and if you pass the requirements, you can have a monthly credit limit.

Another huge positive with betting with CrownBet is their instant card, where you are able to transfer your funds onto a prepaid Visa card, which can be used anywhere in the world. One of the biggest frustrations many punters have when betting online is having to wait 3-5 working days to get access to their winnings in their bank account. This CrownBet Card takes away that problem. There is no charge for uploading to the card and it is a safe and secure way of transferring funds to and from your betting account.

When you open a new account with CrownBet, verification may be asked to prove you are old enough to gamble and you are who you say you are. Verification documents can be sent via e-mail or in the post and once CrownBet receives them, it marks your account as fully active.

Conclusion & Overall Rating

CrownBet is a reliable betting site that you can trust to be safe and secure. Due to the variety of sports and markets on the site, you should rarely be unable to find what you are looking for. Choice is very important to punters, especially if you want to combine a number of selections into a multiple bet that can give you a long-term interest.

Their website has been put together well and is smooth on the eye. There is not too much information on the homepage, so you are not bombarded with too many markets.

If you enjoy betting on horse racing and greyhounds, you will find all the daily meetings in Australia priced up, as well as having the luxury of being able to bet on international meets at different times of the day.

Credit betting and the ability to get access to your funds instantly on a prepaid card are huge positives that CrownBet’s competitors don’t offer. Obviously, credit betting is not for everyone, so if you prefer just playing with your own cash, you can stick to a debit account.

Betting with CrownBet should always be a positive experience due to their Fair Go Refund policy. With this in mind, you should never feel cheated or be left with a sour taste in your mouth because a full refund will be handed out if CrownBet feels it is necessary.

The promotions provided by CrownBet each day are very generous, while every time you place a bet, you can collect points with a CrownBet Rewards membership. This is completely free and is a great way of generating prizes and bonus bets.
