My sports betting journey with Bet365

The Bet365 Sportsbook caught my attention from quite a while ago because of the easiness I could transfer my money from sports betting and poker to casino games while using a single, unified account. It's a feature that you get used to and forget how important it is. When talking about sports betting, it's easy to admit that their big offer of games, sports and leagues allows everybody to find their favourite bets easily. The moment I landed on their website I was pleasantly surprised by its simplicity. For me, it is important to be able to find my way around with ease, rather than being overwhelmed by banners. The saying goes that you only get one chance to make a positive first impression and Bet365 Sports really caught my eye.

What promotions did I find at Bet365?

I checked this multiple times, and I found sports betting offers here almost always. You'll get your fair share of betting options. I prefer matched deposit bonuses, but then again I would never turn down a no-deposit bonus or free spins. Online campaigns do change, so the ones offered at the time of writing might not be available at a later date. The good news is that the bookmaker refreshes its lineup of promotions, so you always have an offer worth considering. You should go regularly on the Bet365 website to check for yourself what is available at the moment.

Bonuses are not always offered in the form of cash, as there are other ways to meet punters half way. The cash out feature is not exactly a bonus, but it’s nice that players are allowed to secure their profits while the game is still playing. I think that this feature is particularly useful as I don’t want to go through a roller coaster of emotions in the final minutes of the match. Depending on how the team plays at the moment, you receive more or less money, which allowed you to mitigate the risks.

Some betting offers I usually saw on their website

The Best Odds Guaranteed promotion for example has been an enduring and for good reasons. After all, who doesn’t want to lock in on the top odds available, regardless of when the bets are placed. This is the kind of offer that will appeal mainly to those who bet on horse racing, a very popular section at Bet365 Sports. There are plenty of different types of bets that qualify, so whether you are a casual punter or a savvy horse racing fan, there’s a good chance to be convinced by this campaign. Here are the terms of this promotion:

When you place your bet with bet365, take the price on your selection - and if the SP is bigger they will pay you out at the bigger odds! Ante-Post, Tote/Pari-Mutuel (bets and dividends), 'Not to Win', Enhanced Win, Cover Bets and In-Play bets are excluded.

This offer includes Board Prices, bet365 Early Prices, singles and multiples as well as Showcast bets on all racing where a fixed price is offered. Offer applies to bets placed on Win and Each Way Fixed Odds markets and Enhanced Place Terms markets only. All other markets, including adjusted place terms (Each Way Extra), Ante-Post bets (unless otherwise stated) and Tote/Pari-Mutuel (bets and dividends), are excluded from this offer. All Australasian Racing is excluded.

For example, if you take an Early Price of 3/1 and your selection wins at 4/1, you get paid at 4/1!

T&Cs apply. Only available to new and eligible customers.

I’m a basketball fan myself, so I found it worthwhile to apply for the 50% Euro Basketball Bonus. This is a good choice for those who wager on basketball matches and don’t mind adding several selections on the same betting slip. Our risk taking nature is rewarded and with each additional event added, the bonus increases by 5% all the way up to 50%. This promotion has been around for a while, but it can still be subject to change. Make sure you read carefully the terms and conditions below, so you know and play by the rules:

bet365’s Euro Basketball offer gives you the chance to earn a bonus of up to 50% on your Men's European Basketball accumulators. This applies to Europe's premier club competitions, the Euroleague and the Eurocup, in addition to Spain's Liga ACB, Italy's Lega 1 and the German Bundesliga. Place a pre-match accumulator with bet365 of 2 or more selections combining teams in any of the above competitions and, if successful, the relevant bonus will be added to your winnings.

The bonus will not apply where a stake has been fully Cashed Out. Where a stake has been partially Cashed Out, the bonus will be calculated based on the remaining active stake and the maximum bonus that you can receive is £100,000 or currency equivalent. If a qualifying bet is edited using the Edit Bet feature, the bonus will be calculated based on the new stake. Where a bet has been edited to include or amend a selection for an event that is In-Play, the bonus will no longer apply.

Bets placed with Bet Credits or combination bets with bonuses such as Lucky 15’s or Lucky 31’s do not apply for this offer.

T&Cs apply. Only available to new and eligible customers.

 

Why am I a long-term bettor of Bet365?

Bet365 is first and foremost a bookmaker and stays true to its name by offering a broad spectrum of sports. I noticed very early that I could wager on anything from American sports and soccer to horse, Greyhound racing and motorsports but also everything in between. I am taking my time to browse the entire selection of games and markets, as it is not easy to explore everything there. Personally, I think the biggest challenge is to stick to one or two sports, because you’ve got so many options worth considering.

Once you overcome the paradox of choice and decide for one or more sports, the fun can begin. For me, the most exciting way to bet is in real-time and Bet365 Sports provided me a complete live streaming service. It probably helps that they are the sponsors of several teams and competitions, as they cover so many games. You can use your desktop computer or make the transition to smartphones and tablets. There’s no need to make any compromises, since the platform is responsive and loads quickly on mobile devices.

You can bet on lower divisions here or stick to the flagship competitions. They don’t broadcast only the biggest tournaments and don’t focus exclusively on the best-known teams. This is something I appreciate, since sometimes my betting patterns include low-profile football clubs. I like the way they update the odds in real-time, so I’m not stuck with unresponsive markets. On those rare occasions when I don’t have the time to watch the matches live, I use the static information provided by Bet365 Sports for live games.

It’s important to mention that you need to have a real money account to be able to watch the games in real-time. You can load an insignificant amount and still enjoy the live streams, which I think is really great if you love sports. They have improved their platform and the new one is more responsive, while looking just as good as its predecessor. I don’t like major changes and I’m happy to say that the visual updates are reasonable and capture the very fragrance of the original bookmaker.
