Racing Online - Sports betting apps - Crownbet app review

In 2018, CrownBet ceased trading and relaunched as Read our review of the new betting site here.

Crownbet has been making waves in the online betting community in the last year, and with the backing of Crown Resorts it was only a matter of time before they became a major player in the industry.

Making great advances in Australia through online horse racing live streaming and their affiliation with the AFL, Crownbet has become part of the vernacular when it comes to betting in the country.

While the app was not launched in unison with the Crownbet brand, it has been around long enough now to have proven itself as one of the premier ones on the iOS and Android space for betting in Australia.

It is, as Crownbet self-proclaim, the world’s ‘most advanced mobile app’.

Compound this with a soon to be launched loyalty program that ties in with other affiliated Crown products, which has been described as a ‘world’s first’ in the industry, it is easy to see why there is such a buzz around Crownbet right now.

Most importantly though: how does the app itself stack up? Do the big claims made by Crownbet stand up to what users will want in their online betting experience? Let’s take a look at the features and answer all of those questions.

Crownbet mobile app – what to expect

When it comes to mobile betting experiences, some of the apps on the market are a significant step down from the web-based component of the online company.

Obviously the team at Crownbet have been wary of this and have put a lot of time and effort into ensuring the app experience is as rewarding as visiting their own site.

Using the same easy on the eye colour scheme the website employs, the app is one of the simplest yet fully engrossing experiences that punters will have on their phones.

With your balance displayed at the top, a top menu that grants you access to sport or horse racing – both next to go and a more detailed list of upcoming events – account details and bet slips, the Crownbet app is a clear standout in the mobile betting world.

Mobile sport & racing betting

With easy to access menus at the top, Crownbet has one of the simplest apps on the market in terms of changing between horse racing and sport.

The app also includes a ‘help coach’ that runs you through how to use the features to their full potential.

When clicking upon the horse racing icon, the help coach will instruct you to tap once for the ‘next to jump’ – which is a list of the next five horse races – or to hold and get a full list of all the upcoming races for the day.

Same works for the sports app, a quick tap will show you the next matches slated to start, while holding the icon will grant you access to all the sports at the touch of a button.

It is the user-friendly nature of the app that makes it a standout among all the current online bookmarker apps on the market.

Similar to the website the Crownbet ‘B’ logo is an option, which will give you the five next to go for both horse racing and sports.

iOS & Android compatible

The app has both compatibility with Android and iOS, with the website giving you easy to find options at the foot of the mobile-based website to find the download links.

With the self-confessed ‘most sophisticated online wagering program’ Crownbet has gone above and beyond to ensure that customers have a pleasant and easy experience when using their product.

Smartphone deposits

Some apps on the market give users an arduous task of depositing funds due to both a restriction on what options become available and the ease of which said options are found.

Not so with the Crownbet app.

The exact amount of deposits you can make on the site is the same on the app, and can be found with great ease from the account icon at the top of the app.

A menu will appear once you have chosen the deposit option and gives you the following options.

  • Bank transfer
  • Credit card
  • BPAY
  • POLi

This makes putting money in your account easier than ever as it is the same options that you find on the website.

Our verdict

Crownbet has made plenty of bold claims about the impact of their app, and it seems Australia’s newest online bookmaker has pulled out all the stops to ensure they will be a favourite for years to come.

It will be interesting to see how the loyalty program will work, but in terms of the app itself, Crownbet have clearly put a lot of effort into ensuring their product is the best it can be.

With an unprecedented help feature, easy to access menus and a pin-code login that makes accessing your account and place bets a simple endeavour Crownbet’s app stands atop the market.
