Bet365 have a huge stigma attached to them at the minute as one of the best sportsbooks in the world. The site has grown exponentially since their introduction in 2001 and they have really started to set the bar for pretty much all other bookmakers. Whilst we already know that Bet365 are about as good as you can get, we are going to use this review to highlight the reasons as to why they’ve become so successful and also point out some areas which we think could be improved slightly.
At Bet365 you can get a 100% match on your first deposit worth up to £200 in free bets. The promotion works as a result of your first bet and once you’ve opened your new account you will then receive an email from Bet365. This email will include a 10-digit code of which you will need to include when you make your first deposit.
Once the code has been entered and the deposit made, the bonus money will be credited to your account and you can start to use it straight away. To withdraw any bonus funds or winnings you will need to play through your deposit amount and bonus 3 times before becoming eligible. It’s worth noting that only bets made at odds of 1/2 (1.50) or greater will count towards clearing your bonus.
The standout feature for us is without doubt their live streaming section. This area includes a boatload of sports including soccer, snooker, tennis, volleyball, baseball and more. Some of the sports and matches can be quite obscure, but they are generally games that you can’t see anywhere else, which is a positive in our eyes. The streams are easy to access and all you need to have is either a funded Bet365 account or to have placed a wager within the last 24 hours. There are literally dozens of live streams everyday and we found that you can really get submersed in what they have to offer.
The live streaming section also connects nicely with their comprehensive in-play betting section. Here you will be able to pick from a plethora of markets to bet on. In fact, we’d hazard a guess that the majority of markets that Bet365 have (in terms of WDW markets) turns live.
The live streaming works so well because for each game on offer you are taken to a sort of homepage for that game, which includes the stream (where provided). This means that not only can you access hundreds of markets for just one game but you can also watch that game completely live and see how each market is reacting to how the game is progressing. Also, if you are betting on more than one match, then you can click the multi-view- tab at the top to snap in several games and see them all at once.
We can’t really leave out the fact that no bookmaker covers sport quite like Bet365. These guys have re-written the book when it comes to deep and some of the sports and markets that they have on offer are truly mind-blowing. With Bet365 being a Euro facing site, football (soccer betting) plays a huge roll for them and you can find that the majority of the higher profile matches will include will in excess of 100 markets before the game, and even more after the game turns live. If you’re the type of person who enjoys betting on the more obscure betting markets, then Bet365 will be about as good as you can get.
The final point that we want to make is how well the site ticks over. Everything from customer service, banking, design, promotions and mobile coverage are of the highest caliber. What we have found from Bet365 is that few bookmakers do any of the above features better than Bet365, which is a massive positive for bettors.
If you haven’t already noticed, we are big fans of Bet365! The biggest compliment that we can pay them is that they don’t really have a weakness. We are yet to see another bookmaker offer anything feature related that Bet365 don’t do.
You could argue that they don’t throw in too many of the more gimmicky coupons such as Goals Galore at Betfred, but you can assemble these types of bets by making multiples of the markets that are on offer. We can’t really find anything that sticks out as negative with Bet365 and if you haven’t tried them already, then what are you waiting for?
