Bet365 Review

Current Sign Up Bonus: 100% up to $200


Whether you’re a new to sports betting or a seasoned veteran, you’re going to love the Bet365 sportsbook.

Bet365 offers a large deposit bonus, competitive odds on a wide array of sports, and excellent live betting highlighted by live streaming of many events — all on one of the most user-friendly websites and mobile platforms in the industry.

Bet365 Sign Up Bonus

The Bet365 signup bonus is a very generous 100% match of your first deposit, up to $200. It’s a great way for beginners to double their bankroll in a hurry.

Not only that, you only need to roll over (wager the equivalent of) your initial deposit and bonus three times before you can make a Bet365 withdrawal.

Once you make your deposit, you will receive a Bet365 bonus code with instructions. Input the bonus code into the appropriate field and your bonus will be awarded instantly.

Bet365 might also offers you a loyalty bonus from time to time, typically before a major event like Wimbledon or the World Cup. In this case, a Bet365 bonus code will be emailed to you with instructions on where to use it.

Bet365 Website

Even though Bet365 offers betting lines on dozens of different sports and leagues, the odds you’re looking for are always just a few clicks away.

The Bet365 home page features a menu of all sports down the left side, a display of all the in-play betting (live betting) odds in the centre, and a short list of the most popular games to bet on in the top-right corner.

A link to the popular live streaming is also at the top of the home page.

To place a bet, click on the sport and then select the type of bet you want to make (full game, first half, props, futures, etc.) Odds for that bet will be displayed at that point.

Just click on the odds, choose how much you want to risk or wager, and confirm.

Links to customer service, sports stats, sports scores and promotions can be found at the bottom of each page on the Bet365 website.

Bet365 Mobile Site

The Bet365 mobile site displays on your phone or tablet as well as any sportsbook app we’ve seen.

The top of the Bet365 mobile screen features a tab that drops down a list of all sports, or you can click through a scrollable menu with icons for each different sport.

Below that is a display of the Bet365 live betting odds, similar to the sportsbook’s website display, and a list of the most popular games of the day.

To place a bet on the Bet365 mobile site, click on the sport, select the type of bet you want to make and click on the odds. At this point, you can either choose what you want to risk or win on your wager, or add it to your betting ticket to make a parlay.

Bet365 Live Betting

It’s no coincidence that live in-play betting lines are displayed front and centre on the Bet365 website.

Bet365 live betting is the sportsbook’s bread and butter, and they do it very well.

Live betting odds are offered on a wide variety of games, and there are always plenty of betting options in each game. The margin on their live betting lines is usually in the 30-cent range, which is smaller than most sportsbooks.

Another feature of Bet365 live betting is the fact you can do it while the action is in progress, instead of being limited to between plans or during commercials.

And don’t forget about Bet365 live streaming, which allows you to watch the action while you’re live betting — a major advantage.

Bet365 Betting Odds

Bet365 doesn’t offer reduced juice, but it doesn’t gouge you either.

Their betting odds are very competitive with most sportsbooks, and you’ll occasionally catch a better price than even at Pinnacle Sports.

On many of their wagering options, they are a standard 20-cent margin (-110/-110).

Credit cards can be a quick and easy way to deposit at an online sportsbook. Visa tends to work a little better than Mastercard, but be aware that not all issuing banks allow deposits to online sportsbooks. Read more in our detailed review, which covers some alternatives should your credit card not work as a deposit method.

Credit Card Review

The best Bet365 deposit methods for new players are InstaDebitiDebit or Paysafecard, since they are the fastest and easiest methods. InstaDebit and iDebit allows you to pay directly from your personal bank account, and Paysafecard is a pre-paid voucher with a 16-digit code you use to fund your sports betting account.

Bet365 also accepts credit cards, but your bank might not allow you to use your credit card on gambling sites. Entropay is good fallback option, since you can still use your credit card to fund the Entropay virtual Visa card.

Bet365 also accepts wire transfers and cheques, but those will take days to process.

You won’t pay a fee using any of the Bet365 deposit methods and they won’t charge a fee for withdrawals, excluding wire transfers.

Bet365 Customer Service

Bet365 offers customer support via live chat, telephone, email, web message and good ol’ fashioned snail mail.

If you have any questions about your betting account, the answers can also likely be found in Bet365’s extensive help screen that includes FAQs, banking information, technical support and sportsbook rules.
