are a 100% Australian owned and operated bookmaker with the brand born out of the previously existing BetEzy following a buyout of the site in early 2014 by Matt Tripp; the former head of Sportsbet. BetEzy was noted for being one of only two bookmakers in Australia where customers can lay horses as well as back them.
Since the takeover, the BetEasy brand has gone from strength to strength. Bigger and better offers, enhanced customer service and a much quicker and slicker website means they have already improved on the impressive existing service offered.
BetEasy offers markets and live odds across all major sports including horse racing, NRL, AFL, rugby union, soccer and cricket as well as numerous others - although they don't go as in depth as some of their rivals.
Significantly, BetEasy are one of only two bookmakers in Australian offering the option to lay bets – betting on a horse to lose a race or a team to lose a match. In addition to the attractive sign-up bonus, it is the availability of lay betting that makes BetEasy stand out from the crowd in what is a highly competitive market.
BetEasy may not compete with some of the bigger name rival bookmakers when it comes to the number of markets for each event, but what they have is almost unique with the ability to lay bets. If you want that option, or the chance to bet against your mates, then signing up for an account is a must.New Customer Offer

A 100% Australian-owned bookmaker, the BetEasy name is to be launch in April 2014 following the rebrand of Betezy, which had been purchased by the former head of Sportsbet Matt Tripp.
Betezy was a Northern Territory-regulated operation first established in 2003. Betezy operated more than 40 betting websites in Australia with the flagship site being betezy.com.au. That impressive portfolio is set to continue and indeed grow further with the relaunch as BetEasy following the buyout by proven performers in the Australian gambling sector.
Now the BetEasy.com.au domain is the flagship site along with the newly launched apps. It is a major improvement of the previous offering and has served to enhance the customer experience.
BetEasy are a rapidly growing bookmaker in the Australian gambling sector and look set to play a major part in years to come.
Odds and Markets
BetEasy offer markets on all key Australian sports events including horse racing, harness racing and greyhound racing as well as NRL, AFL, Super Rugby, soccer and cricket.
They have pre-event odds and live odds available on all domestic sports and future markets and key forthcoming events and also offer overseas betting opportunities. In-play betting is offered on most markets, including all Twenty 20 cricket matches which is a key offering from BetEasy.
You will find the odds in line with most of their rivals although they won't tend to stand out with the biggest price.
Where BetEasy differ from other bookmakers is in the fact they are one of only two offering lay betting as an option or service. The ability to bet on losing outcomes of horse racing or sports matches or events is a key attraction, giving you the option to make some serious profits betting on the fact a horse will lose a race or a team will be beaten in a key match. The opportunity to lay bets typically kicks in close to start of events (around five minutes before the off, and up to 24 hours before big races).
The BetEasy website is a big improvement since the relaunch. It is effective, functional and easy to use and provides customers with a slick experience. Bets are fairly quick to place too – exactly what you want from a betting website where time can often be critical.
The design is clear - all done in the BetEasy blue - with sports displayed in a menu on the left of the page and odds for the latest sporting events displayed centrally. The latest offers and promotions are also available on the homepage, while the bet slip function is situation on the right-hand side of the website.
BetEasy offer good customer services with telephone lines open from 9am to midnight (AEST) on Monday-Saturday and 8.30am to 6.30am on Sundays unless specific events run later. There is also email help and live chat help available on the website.
