CrownBet is a leading sportsbook in Oceania and one which caters to players based in New Zealand. The sportsbook has a flashy look and feel to it, which makes it stand out from the many other rather generic sportsbooks you can find in the online gambling world.
CrownBet.com.au can be accessed by players in New Zealand, who are also at liberty to use the New Zealand dollar to place stakes on their favourite games. CrownBet.com.au is fully licensed by the Northern Territory Government of Australia, and so is legal. This will no doubt appeal to players in New Zealand, especially since the legal sportsbook is actually a subsidiary of Crown Resorts, Ltd.
CrownBet.com.au’s Welcome Offer, Latest Promotions and Bonuses
New Zealanders are entitled to claim a welcome bonus which is worth up to NZ$200 when they make their very first deposit of $50 after registering at the online sportsbook. That hefty welcome bonus can be used on all manner of sporting bets at the online sportsbook. That isn’t the only offer that the online sportsbook can throw your way, though.
As a matter of fact, the online sportsbook is jam-packed with sensational promotions and bonuses, perhaps more so than any other sportsbook which offers online betting services to players in New Zealand. Expect to be able to find horse racing promos which can offer prize pots worth NZ$80,000, world soccer multi-bets, a rewards program which offers players money back for their stakes, and a host of live bet promos. AFL Footy Tipping, NRL Tipping, mystery bets, NRL betting rule changes and protest payouts can also be found at this online sportsbook, alongside dozens of other amazing deals, promos and bonuses.
User Interface and Graphics
As we’ve said, CrownBet.com.au has a rather flashy interface and structure. The design of this online sportsbook appeals to mobile users, as well as those playing via their computers in the instant play version of the site. From the upper right-hand corner of the lobby, players can access a wealth of information, including racing, sports, multi express, lotto, rewards, promotions and support pages.
The lobby itself contains all of the hottest bets and promotions, whilst located at the bottom of the website are access to the downloadable app, live support options, and plenty of pages regarding the finer points (the ins and outs) of playing at CrownBet.com.au, such as terms and conditions, banking information, FAQs, about pages, feedback, help and affiliate information.
Sporting events are broken down into two genres at CrownBet.com.au. On the one hand, players can choose to peruse the racing section of the site, which offers horse racing and greyhound racing. On the other hand, the sports section of the lobby contains a vast array of major sporting events which is well worth a look for New Zealand players.
Some of the many sporting markets you can join in when you play at CrownBet.com.au include American football, athletics, Australian rules football, baseball, basketball, boxing, cricket, cycling, darts, entertainment, e-sports, golf, ice hockey, MMA, motor sport, netball, rugby league, rugby union, soccer, surfing, table tennis, tennis, volleyball and a wide selection of “other sports”.
Those “other sports” include badminton, bandy, beach soccer, beach volleyball, chess, CrossFit, field hockey, financials, floorball, futsal, Gaelic football, handball, lawn bowls, novelties, pesapallo, politics, snooker, squash, swimming, water polo, winter sports and yachting. There seems to be no end to the range of sporting events you can bet on when you play at CrownBet.com.au as a New Zealand based player.
Odds and Prices
CrownBet.com.au showcases its sporting odds in decimalised format. This seems to be the standard for the world and is a format which most New Zealand based players appear to be comfortable with. Players will also note that the odds they can find at this online sportsbook are amongst the fairest for New Zealand players to enjoy. That coupled with the sheer volume of different sporting bets you can place makes CrownBet.com.au very appealing indeed.
By clicking on the “live centre” tab, players can be taken to the latest events which are being hosted live at CrownBet. Admittedly, there aren’t as many live betting options here than you will find at other larger sportsbooks, but the selection of tennis, ARL, NFL, football, and rugby events should be more than enough to suffice most players.
CrownBet.com.au doesn’t offer live streaming of sporting events, but they carry an in-depth stats centre, known as the “live centre”. From there, you can find a whole host of top information regarding any live sporting events currently taking place, as well as the information regarding any live in-play bets you may currently have. This should suffice in keeping live in-play bettors in the know regarding their most recent stakes.
As we’ve said before, players can actually visit the CrownBet.com.au sportsbook on their mobile phone and tablet without having to download any additional software. The sportsbook has been designed to be mobile-friendly however you choose to access it. Of course, there is a separate mobile app for CrownBet, and it can be downloaded at the bottom of the lobby, or via the iPhone or Google Play app stores. The mobile version of CrownBet.com.au is more streamlined, offering a far better experience if you prefer to bet on your phones.
Payment Methods and Customer Support
Payment methods and banking options are not as numerous at CrownBet as at other online sportbooks for New Zealanders, but you should still be able to deposit using some popular options, some of which include VISA, MasterCard, POLi, PayPal and the New Zealand favourite, BPAY. Players can withdraw with virtually all those deposit options, too. Deposit and withdrawals limits are fair, and few charges are applied to withdrawals. More information on the banking options available can be found via the lobby.
As for customer support, CrownBet.com.au offers customer support via an e-form, FAQ guide (if you wish to seek out answers for yourself), live chat or via telephone (you may be charged for that). Our recommendation is to use live chat since it is the fastest option and is always free of charge for New Zealanders.
