BetEasy is once again a bookmaker in Australia (as of August 2018) following the the sale of CrownBet in February 2018, and the merger of CrownBet and William Hill.
BetEasy was previously owned by James Packer and his Crown Resorts company, Canadian betting giant The Stars Group purchased 62% of the company for $150 million and it will look to push the legalisation of online poker games in Australia.
BetEasy, and it’s previous brand BetEzy, have been around in Australia since 2005. Previous Sportsbet owner, Matthew Tripp, bought BetEzy in 2014 and rebranded to BetEasy. Months later, BetEasy was bought by Crown Resorts and re-branded to CrownBet.
BetEasy’s leading technological betting platform is what separates it from many of its competitors and Australian punters are unlikely to be deterred by its offshore ownership.
