Bet365 Review

Bet365 were one of the first bookmakers to realise the potential of the digital revolution. Founded in the UK in 1999, they became fully established online in 2000 and for many of us, they are among our first set of sign ups.

This is an operator who meets every expectation in terms of prices and service so, if you haven’t already got an account with Bet365, here are the reasons why we like them so much.

Available Sports

Here is the full list of sports that you can currently bet on through Bet365:
American Football, Australian Rules Football, Baseball, Basketball, Boxing, UFC, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, eSports, Futsal, Gaelic Sports, Golf, Greyhound Racing, Hockey, Horse Racing, Ice Hockey, Motorsports, Pool, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Soccer, Speedway, Tennis, Volleyball, Winter Sports, Badminton, Beach Volleyball, Handball, Netball, Surfing, Table Tennis, Trotting, Water Polo.

That’s obviously a very wide list with plenty of sports that aren’t covered by the majority of bookmakers so that’s the first positive for Bet365. In addition, you can also access markets for events such as entertainment and politics which are growing in popularity.

Pricing

As an established brand, Bet365 are picked up by all the odds comparison sites and by studying them, you can see just how well this bookmaker is performing across all sports. They are frequently out on their own with the highest prices for particular markets but you can generally be assured that they are always competitive so you can bet in the knowledge that you will always get value for money.

Another positive here is that Bet365 have a really extensive set of side bets and they tend to declare their prices much earlier than the majority of bookmakers.

Promotions

There’s always something going on at Bet365 when it comes to ongoing deals and by checking our news feeds or clicking on the offers page over on their website, you can see what’s happening at any specific time. Things start with one of the best welcome deals on the net and this is a 100% match on your first deposit that can earn a mighty £200.00, or currency equivalent, at the top end of the scale.

Ongoing offers can be subject to change but you can always find a great set of football and horse racing offers. For racing, these can be free bet offers or a price boost on selected televised races from the day’s card. It’s also worth remembering that Bet365 publish a Best Odds Guarantee scheme on all horse racing in the UK and Ireland.

For football, it’s a similar set up with regular deals such as the Bore Draw Breaker which refunds bets in specified markets if a specific game ends in a 0-0 draw. Bonuses also exist for multiple bets and these can be used across many sports so, as you can now see, this is one of the best sets of deals that you will find anywhere on the market.

Banking and Customer Service

One of the benefits of being an established and trusted brand is the fact that most eWallet providers want to get onside with you and it’s useful to see Paypal listed there. This is the biggest name in this respect and it has helped to grow Bet365’s customer base.

Alongside PayPal, you can use Skrill, Neteller, paysafecard, Entropay plus all the major debit and credit cards.

As for customer service, Bet365 publish one of the more helpful sets of Frequently Asked Questions but you can also email or telephone via a toll free number in certain parts of the world. It may be a surprise that there is no Live Chat Operator at present but all other regular options are covered and the help here is fast and effective.

Conclusion

There really isn’t a weak area within this Bet365 set up. Aside from all the strong points that we’ve previously mentioned, this operator is at the forefront of betting in play with 1000s of live markets available at any one time so if this is acceptable in your country, this is the place to be.

For standard ante post betting, this is also a logical place with which to sign up. Offers and promotions give great added bonuses and these come on top of standard markets where the prices compare with any other outlet. As for choice, an extensive set of side bets and a wide range of sports just complete the set of advantages for any Bet365 customer.
