The CrownBet.com.au online sportsbook came to be in 2015, when Australia’s casino industry titan Crown Resorts rebranded an existing site.
The top casino chain Down Under recently sold CrownBet to The Stars Group – parent company of PokerStars – so a name change may be in the works at some point. But when that day comes, bettors in Australia and elsewhere will still have access to the same world-class sportsbook service.
That’s because founder and CEO Matthew Tripp will be staying aboard to supervise CrownBet’s transition to The Stars Group.
Combined with Tripp’s stellar stewardship, supervision from the Northern Territory Racing Commission (NTRC) ensures CrownBet customers are always treated fairly.
And those customers have every reason to come back for more, as CrownBet utilizes cutting edge software to spread one of the most expansive sportsbook selections found online.
From the ponies to the pitch, this site has avid bettors covered in spades.
New customers are greeted with a generous welcome offer, as CrownBet will match your first deposit with up to $100 in Bonus Bets. Just head to the “Join CrownBet” link and look for the latest bonus code, which is “DCROWN100” as of this writing.
These freebies let you explore the site’s functionality free of charge, with CrownBet footing the bill for your first few wagers.
In addition, regulars can take advantage of running promotions that boost your bankroll with bonuses, such as the “Ben Simmons Special,” which gave backers of the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers some side action to cheer for. If you bet on the Sixers to beat the Celtics in any second round matchup during the 2018 playoffs, CrownBet awarded $1 worth of Bonus Bets for every point the Aussie hoopster scored during that game.
As well, the “Triple Points Special” awards bonus dollars when you bet on thoroughbred, harness, or greyhound racing.
You’ll also find bonus offers targeting Aussie Rules Football (AFL), the National Rugby League (NRL), and all forms of international footie.
In each case, the minimum deposit amount is quite low at just $5, you’ll receive your funds promptly, and no added fees are attached.
For withdrawals, you can cash out via electronic funds transfer (EFT) or international telegraphic transfer (ITT).
The minimum withdrawal amount is the same low $5 limit, a refreshing change of pace in the iGaming industry at a time when many of CrownBet’s competitors make cashing out more difficult.
If you’ve never seen the CrownBet sportsbook interface before, you’re in for quite the treat.
The landing page layout is clean, crisp, and intuitive. By using a convenient grid layout – which puts every wagering option in front of you simultaneously – the site ensures bettors can see each and every one of the 47 sport selections at once.
You’ll find all of the major North American (NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL) and European (UEFA, FIBA, EPL) options on tap, along with cricket, rugby, Aussie Rules Football, darts, snooker, and many more local favourites.
The selection of sports and leagues is unparalleled.
With 47 sports to choose from, and literally thousands of betting markets across the board, punters always have action awaiting them on CrownBet.
CrownBet may be called by another name sometime soon, but beneath the branding, bettors will always find an incredible race and sportsbook that has their interests at heart. And knowing that The Stars Group helped to build the world’s leading online poker room should leave punters hopeful about what the future has in store.
