Races and sports are on the left, current odds are in the middle and your Betting Slip is to the right. Once the markets on the left are clicked, more info appears in the middle of the screen, while the betting slip is featured on the far right. This is a very familiar layout and makes CrownBet, one of the easiest platforms to use.
