CrownBet and William Hill recently merged to form BetEasy, the result is an excellent bookmaker who focuses on delivering the best customer experience possible with industry leading betting promotions, a massive amount of betting markets and great odds.
1) BetEasy’s Bet Boost/Odds Boost product is one of the best
BetEasy’s offering in the odds boost market is called Bet Boost. Bet Boost allows you to enhance the odds of any horse racing, greyhound or harness runner for free. To use the bet boost function you simply select your pick, go to the bet slip and select bet boost and watch the odds increase.
Customers of BetEasy will receive one bet boost per day apart from when they are running special bet boost promotions you may receive more. Bet Boosts will only work when using real money to bet with, they won’t work when you are using a bonus bet.
BetEasy has just introduced Bet Boost on multibets, so in addition to your daily Bet Boost for racing you will now receive 1 Multi Bet Boost. The multi bet boost can be used on all racing and sports markets when you choose 2+ selections.
If you have plenty of rewards points available it is also possible to use your rewards points to boost the odds of any sport or racing event. Rewards Boost is different to bet boost and uses your hard earned rewards points to increase the odds of your selection.
2) BetEasy have an easy to navigate app
BetEasy have one of the leading apps in the industry, excellent user interface that is easily navigated after you’ve used it a couple of times.
3) The BetEasy Rewards program is second to none
BetEasy Rewards is probably the best rewards system in the betting industry and you will earn rewards points for every bet you place with BetEasy. Once you have earned points based on the table below they will be credited to your account within 5 minutes.

4) Promotions are plentiful at BetEasy
CrownBet and William Hill both prided themselves on having the leading promotions in the industry, now that they have merged they have taken the BetEasy promotions to another level. Every Saturday they usually run a run 2nd or 3rd promotion at the major Horse Racing meets where you will receive your bet back as a bonus bet up to $50 if your runner comes second or third.
4+ leg multi-bet specials are a common occurrence on the AFL, Tennis, NRL and Soccer where you will receive your stake back as a bonus bet up to $50 if your multi misses by 1 leg. This is a great little promo if you are into your multibets.
Along with the weekly betting promotions BetEasy also run many free promotions throughout the year like their AFL tipping competition where you could share in $30K for entering your AFL tips. At the moment of writing this review BetEasy have an AFL Finals promotion where you can share in $125,000 by tipping the results of their selected matchups throughout the AFL finals series. This competition is also free to enter.
5) The live betting process at BetEasy
Live betting on BetEasy is a simple process, or it’s as simple as it can be since the government will not allow live online betting in Australia without making a phone call. Once a market begins the market is moved to the Live Betting Page.
Once you locate the bet that you are after you click your selection, a Bet Code and Phone ID will pop up and a button that says ‘call now to bet’. From there click the call now to bet button and within a couple of rings you will be put through to a BetEasy operator who will ask for your phone ID, Bet Code and amount that you would like to wager. The operator will confirm your bet is accepted and that is all, your bet is placed.
If you forgot you phone ID or Bet Code you can also just tell the operator the bet that you would like to place and they will find it within 20 seconds, the codes are to make the process as quick and error proof as possible.
6) Watch the races when you place a bet on an Australian horse, greyhound or harness race
Beteasy is the only Corporate Bookmaker in Australia which offers the sky racing channel which broadcasts the majority of thoroughbred, greyhound and harness racing in Australia. There is no need to run for a radio or TV when you are a member of BetEasy, to watch the race simply open the App and click the skyracing button. You can watch any qualifying Australian thoroughbred, harness or greyhound race. New Zealand, UK, Irish and South African races are also included.
To qualify to watch the races through BetEasy you must have an account (Sign up here), be located in Australia and have placed a bet within the last 2 years. Unfortunately if you travel overseas you will not have access whilst abroad due to geo blocking measures taken by beteasy.
Skyracing will use your mobile data so if you are going to be watching it all day everyday make sure you are connected to wifi or have a sufficient mobile data plan.
7) BetEasy’s minimum deposits and maximum payouts
BetEasy has a minimum deposit of $5.00 and a minimum bet of 50 cents.
Maximum Payouts are something that your normal punter donesn’t realise exist, but they do exist at all bookmakers to protect themselves from massive payouts.
We have filtered through the BetEasy Terms and Conditions to find the maximum payout for any SPORTS individual or multi bet is $250,000 and for Team Multibets in the Brownlow Medal the maximum payout is only $50,000. So take this into account when you are building a multibet that has a payout of millions of dollars, there is no need to add those extra legs.
Maximum payouts for Horse Racing, Greyhound Racing and Harness is a bit more complicated than Sports, see the table below which was taken from the BetEasy website.
8) The BetEasy protest payout
If you are unlucky enough to have snagged a winner in the past only to have the result overturned through a protest you’ll understand how useful this feature is. Luckily if there is a protest upheld in any Australian Horse or Harness Race and you were on the wrong end of the stick you will still be paid out as the winner.
9) BetEasy offer an EFT/Prepaid visa card
Prepaid Visa Cards are a must if you have a corporate bookmaker account. BetEasy offer an excellent solution to this in the form of a prepaid Visa card where you can withdraw your winnings from your account to your prepaid Visa card and the funds will be available instantly.
This is a great addition to the corporate bookmakers in recent years because one of the biggest drawbacks to betting with a corporate was not having the ability to instantly withdraw your winnings straight after a good win, especially if you are at the pub and want to down a few extra pints after a hard earned win on the horses.
10) Save your favourite horses/greyhounds in a blackbook on BetEasy
BetEasy has recently added this great addition although there is one drawback as it is not available in the App, you click the black-book button in the App and are instantly redirected to the black-book on their website. Once there you can add the horse or greyhound that just stormed home and you will be notified next time the horse or hound is running. Along with the name of the runner you can enter a note for yourself to remind you of the reason you black-booked it.
In the BetEasy preference centre you can choose how you would like to be notified when your black-booker is running, you can choose either email or SMS for the black-book runner.
