Bet365 Sports Review

by Gambling.com™

Bet365 is one of the leading online bookmakers in the world. They have held a UK license since 1974 and with over 800 employees; they are rated as the UK’s 16th largest private company.

For sports betting, Bet365 is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. Their comprehensive service has attracted over 2 million customers in 140 different countries.

Software

These established bookmakers decided who better to provide software for their online sports offering than their own in-house developers which is precisely what Bet365 has done. Avoiding the popular sports offering softwares, Bet365 relies on its own bookmakers experience and expertise to produce this topnotch sports offering.

User Experience

Bet365 doesn’t overwhelm the player with flash marketing banners. Bet365 focuses on promoting as many betting opportunities as possible from the home page. One massive benefit for the Bet365 players is that you can watch unlimited race replays from all UK racecourses at no extra cost.

All you have to have is a registered account. This is in line with Bet365’s extensive site content, which has to be regarded as the most comprehensive in the industry, from mainstream sports such as football to niche events like handball.

In August 2011, Bet365 also became the official mobile betting partner with the world largest sports broadcaster, ESPN. This mobile app will feature real time scores for English Premier League, and is available for Apple, Android, and Blackberry users.

Odds and Prices

As the top UK bookmaker, it is no surprise a portion of its popularity is derived from its robust odds. Players know Bet365 Sports is sure to offer the most competitive odds around on all sports, leagues and markets offered regardless of popularity.

Betting Options

Bet365 offers all the traditional forms of betting, as well as a fantastic range of innovative markets for not only major sporting competitions, but also for the more obscure sports and lower leagues. Bet365 have a truly global focus in the events it offers and it is rare for any betting event to not have at least 20 associated markets.

For Premier League matches, it is common for there to be over 200 markets offered. Their attacking risk management system also means that you can place bets with high liabilities without having to speak to a call centre trader for bet confirmation.

Key Markets Offered

In-Play Focus

Bet365’s in-play portal is the best I have seen in terms of clear presentation of an astonishing breadth of global sports. They offer live streaming of over 10,000 sporting events for their clients each month.

This stunning commitment to the in-play player is also backed up by associated live data that helps the player put his bet into context. The richness of this portal can mean that this section of the site can be slow to load on occasions.

Promotions

If new players make a minimum deposit of £10 or €10, they will be entitled to a 100% bonus on their qualifying deposit up to a maximum of £200 or €200. Reload and cash back bonuses are offered to regular players throughout each month.

Bet365 has an excellent online support system. Newcomers can take a look at the Bet Tutorial and FAQ for all you need to know about online gambling. Players can use the email, phone, post, fax, or call back services.

If queries are urgent, they can use the Live Chat feature to be put through to the support team directly. Telephone support is known to have slow response times at Bet365 even though support is marketed as 24/7. Most major queries can only be resolved between 09.00-17.00GMT, when Senior Support Advisors are available.
