The site now known once again – since August 2018 – as BetEasy has gone through a succession of identities down the years. Its history goes as far back as 2003, when the bookmaker A. Kay – trading as AK Racing – first used the domain bestoddsbet.com.
The Betezy brand was launched in 2005, continuing with this name until it was rechristened as BetEasy in September 2014. From March 2015 until August 2018, the site acquired the CrownBet identity, in deference to its then-majority owner, Crown Resorts.
Now that majority ownership of the site has changed once again – this time to the Canadian online gambling firm The Stars Group – the name BetEasy has been brought back. But does the site still manage to be the leading option it once was for horse racing on the web?
Like almost any major online gambling portal today, BetEasy can be accessed in the traditional form of a desktop site, as well as optimised for the smaller screens of mobile devices. If it’s the latter that you’d like to go for, you can either reach the site through your mobile web browser or download the dedicated iOS or Android app.
Whatever your preferences for how you use the site, you will find a wealth of opportunities to gamble on the horses, including at such familiar Australian and New Zealand venues as Pakenham, Canterbury, Sandown, Belmont and Tamworth.
In addition to these are the many opportunities to have a flutter on races taking place across the globe, at the likes of Saratoga, Finger Lakes, Catterick, Musselburgh, Lingfield and Kempton.
The site also offers an assortment of regularly updated promotions that will be of particular interest to horse racing aficionados, as well as such other perks as access to Sky Racing channels, enabling you to watch all Australian thoroughbred, greyhound and harness racing as it happens. You can even watch international racing through these same channels.
Indeed, with the greyhound and harness racing betting sections of the site giving you a lot of chances to take a punt on your favourite contenders in these categories, BetEasy is a very complete place to gamble on all types of racing. Oh, and we love that an entire category of the routinely updated BetEasy blog is dedicated to the latest horse racing tips.
BetEasy as a brand may have only recently returned, but the site has always had a stellar reputation for the calibre of its horse racing betting offerings, and its status remains a lofty one as it transitions into its latest iteration.
The sheer breadth of chances to bet, as well as the strong assortment of promotions and extras like the blog section, helps to make BetEasy a very rewarding place to have a flutter on the horses, today as much as it ever was.
