The BetEasy app is available right now to Australian residents. It offers mobile betting on all of the popular sports events across the globe, bringing the action more accessible and closer to you than ever before. The Bet Easy brand is now owned by some of the biggest names in the industry, such as William Hill, CrownBet and The Stars Group. This led us to have high expectations on the performance and capabilities of the Bet Easy app from the off. Our final thoughts can be found below.
BetEasy app registration
In order to use the Bet Easy app to its full capacity there is a need to register for an account. This is in order to be able to deposit funds to bet with as well as withdrawing funds or winnings back to your bank account. Registration is quick and easy and can be done directly from the button below. A few details are needed to be captured such as name, address etc and then full access to the Bet Easy app will be opened up to you. In order to do this successfully you must be aged 18 years or over.
The next step would then be to go ahead and to install the Bet Easy app to your personal mobile devices. The app is available across mobiles/tablets on a range of different mobile operating systems including Android, iOS, and Windows. Here’s our step by step guide to installing the app followed by our review and user guide.
- Easy to use the app for iPhone and Android
- Live stream racing in widescreen on mobile and tablets
- Live stream NBA games and bet in play
- Fast bet features
How to download the BetEasy Android app
The BetEasy Android app is available from the BetEasy mobile site. You can either choose to download and install the dedicated app in the form of an .apk file, or you can choose to save the BetEasy mobile site to your mobile device’s home screen. From our testing, there is very little difference between the two methods in terms of experience so it would be down to personal preference here. The .apk file takes up a lot more internal memory but delivers a truer app experience. Whereas the mobile site saved as an app logo on your home screen looks a little clunkier, but appeared to be more reliable and less buggy.
To install the BetEasy mobile site as an app logo on your home screen;
- Using your Android device, head to the BetEasy mobile site from the buttons on this page.
- When on the BetEasy home page, tap on to your browser settings and select ‘Add To Home Screen’ from the corresponding pop-up menu.
- The Bet Easy app logo will now appear on your home screen and will be available with a tap of the finger.

How to download the BetEasy iPhone app
The BetEasy iPhone app is ready to download and install straight from iTunes. Head on over to the app store and search for BetEasy. The BetEasy iPhone app should be the top result (It was for us). If in doubt match the logo shown at the top of this page with those that appear in the search results.
There is also another way for those who want to save vital space on their devices and that is to save the mobile site to your iPhone’s or iPads home screen. Visit BetEasy using safari (or whichever mobile browser you prefer) and then hit the share symbol to open up a list of options. In safari this is represented by an upward arrow protruding out of a square and is located in the centre of the bottom browser menu bar. From here you can choose to add to home screen for quick access in the future. An app logo will then show which will direct you to the BetEasy mobile site.
The only real difference between the two different versions is that the URL bar remains visible on the mobile site. Whereas on the dedicated app there is no URL bar at all. The dedicated app looks sharper because of this, but from our vast experience of testing betting apps we have found that the mobile site versions seem to run slightly smoother and suffer from less technical problems.
The BetEasy app is also available on iPad and iPod touch and can be installed in exactly the same way as described above for the BetEasy iPhone app.
Windows app and other Mobiles
No dedicated apps here I’m afraid. However BetEasy was still accessible to us from these devices via a mobile browser. The BetEasy mobile site offers the same service here than on any dedicated app found across other mobile platforms. It was just as secure, feature rich and attractive. There are then three options to consider once you have landed on the BetEasy mobile site’s home page in order to access the site much quicker thereon in.
- Add the BetEasy mobile site to your home page from within the browser settings so that a BetEasy app logo appears along with all your other apps.
- Save the BetEasy mobile site as a bookmark within your mobile browser.
- Select to have the BetEasy mobile site as a favourite page from the browser settings.
BetEasy app review
The BetEasy brand has had some ride along its years of existence and now finds itself in very capable hands with oodles of experience. That experience from new ownership sparked a complete overhaul, leading to a much more expansive offering and a greater level of experience. A new design and an app that is constantly updating to add new features to its already feature rich environment.
Navigation took us a little time to get to grips with at first, as there is so much choice. However once we had familiarised ourselves with the format and had been using it for a few days we soon got the hang of it and was able to locate markets we wanted in a timely fashion. There is a nice clean look to the app with white and purple being the choice of colour to fit in with the overall brand image. Information was clear to read and graphics were crisp, in some cases too crisp. Clever animations are used to highlight specific markets or offers and although they looked great, we found them a little annoying after a while and slowed us down every now and then.
p racing enthusiasts and there is a slight hint that this may well be their specialist sport. However all other major sports are also well serviced with an extensive choice of markets to bet on.
One of the newest and quirkiest features on the app is the ability to live stream sports such as racing and basketball. Furthermore you can still place bets whilst watching the action unfold. The quality of video is of high standard as long as there is a stable data connection. Wi-Fi is preferable as data charges do apply.
With the video quality being high significant data is consumed when watching. Therefore, if you are looking to watch the live streams out and about we would recommend ensuring you have a substantial mobile data plan. Live streams work best when static in one place. The streams tend to freeze up when on the move connected to mobile data, rather than Wi-Fi. Videos have also been recently updated to display in widescreen allowing for a better viewing experience. (Geographic restrictions and terms & conditions apply to the live streaming services)
Another great feature is the addition of ‘BUILDABET’. Personalise your own bets completely as YOU like them, even if they are not visible on the BetEasy app. Submit your selections on the BUILDABET form and the BetEasy analysts will then get back in touch with you with a price and instructions on how to place that particular bet. No longer are you bound or restricted to just the markets and bets available on view. Now you have full capability of creating your own!
Placing bets is fast, easy and logical. This goes for both singles and multiples. Multiple betting options are viewed from within the betslip once selections have been made. Add the desired stake to the relevant type of bet desired, tap place bet and the wager is set ready to either pay out or cost you your hard earned cash (hopefully the former!).
Depositing and withdrawing is a straightforward process and is in line with all other reputable bookmakers. The process can be made even easier thanks to the optional BetEasy app pre paid card. This card can provide you with instant access to your winnings. The card can be used anywhere where Mastercard is accepted (which is pretty much everywhere!) and has the added benefit of zero load charges.
The BetEasy app has a lot going for it and is certainly heading in the right direction in terms of progress and improvement. As such the app has deservedly found a place on our Best Australian betting apps list. Some new features have meant that BetEasy has indeed caught up with the competition and in some aspects improved on them, such as the ability to watch and bet at the same time. They certainly have a keen eye on what others are doing in the marketplace and are learning from them to make their own platform even better. We see this being a continuing trend for the future.
The BetEasy app certainly isn’t the finished article. There are still some things that can be improved on. However, the amount of headway this brand has made in such a short space of time warrants a degree of respect and maybe even a little admiration. Big investors have come in and are obviously not scared at putting their hands in their pockets in an attempt to get the BetEasy brand recognised.
We had big expectations when we decided to review the BetEasy app and have not been left disappointed. The app is of good quality, offers lots of choices, is well in line with the competition in terms of features, offers and value. It is also reliable and trustworthy. There’s a good support system on hand too in case you have any questions or experience any problems such as forgetting your password, for example. All in all a solid app and one we will be keeping on our devices. We look forward to seeing what this app brings in the future.
This page is updated regularly so any new features that come along will be added accordingly. You can also keep in touch with all the latest news surrounding the world of betting apps by following us on Twitter. Our user handle is @bettingappscom.
That completes our review on the BetEasy app. If you have any other questions about the app at all, feel free to ask them to us on Twitter. We urge all of our readers to remember to always bet within your limits and not to bet with money you cannot afford to lose. Keep betting fun and not an the way of life. When the fun stops, stop. Keep sensible, keep happy.
