BetEasy has rebranded to CrownBet, launching a new campaign via GPY&R last night.
The new brand represents the combination of Crown’s global integrated resort company and the largest Australian owned online wagering company.
Ed Owens, CMO of CrownBet said: “The campaign will work to build both immediate and high levels of awareness and registration.
“With the combined technology and sporting knowledge of this brand, we really are going to change the game for online wagering.”
CrownBet, chief executive officer, Matthew Tripp, added: “The new CrownBet name and branding further solidifies our ties to the iconic Crown Resorts brand. The synergies between CrownBet and the Crown Signature Club will provide unparalleled value to our respective customer bases and new members.”
Julian Bell, GPY&R managing partner, said: “It’s a rare privilege these days to launch a big, serious Aussie brand… and it’s been one that GPY&R has thoroughly enjoyed. It’s particularly exciting to work with a team that can blend such deep sporting knowledge with technological innovation. They’re a great team to work with.”
The campaign will be led by Brand, Autumn Racing and AFL 30 sec TVCs, backed by a fully integrated national campaign.
