bet365 Sports Betting Review

Bet365 are one of the biggest online betting companies in the World with millions of users and it’s not hard to see why. But what do we at Place a Bet Online think of Bet365 Sports and are they worthy of their number one for sports title?

Within Bet365 Sports you have a huge variety of sports to choose from, as well as a full games and casino package. The Bet365 Sports website and mobile app is in our opinion the easiest to use, when compared to all the betting companies.  Their site is very sleek and responsive, and you can watch various sporting events by using their live streaming system.

Welcome Bonuses

bet365 sports betting reviewWhen you join Bet365 Sports you’ll be offered a £200 deposit match bonus when you open a new account (minimum £10 deposit). The value of which is very attractive and more than any other bookmaker on the market.  However there is a catch, to take full advantage of the offer you must deposit £200 and enter an offer code.

Once you have the bonus funds in the account, you must have settled betting stakes of three times your qualifying deposit before you can withdraw any funds.  Therefore if you deposit the maximum £200 for £200 in bonus funds, you must have staked £600 in settled bets before you can make a withdrawal.

This is a great offer if you intend using Bet365 Sports to place large stakes or over the long term, so for the bigger gamblers out there; you should take full advantage of this whopping offer. You also get 90 days to use your bonus funds, which are longer than most betting companies offer.

bet365 Regular Promotions

If you are using Bet365 Sports on a regular occasion, more often than not they will send you a promotion code each week for a free £5 or £10 bet; depending on your average stakes.  There is no advised value on bets placed as it is all discretionary, however they are usually pretty good at providing this to loyal customers.

This incredible site also brings their customers some cracking offers, many of which revolve around big football matches. If you place a bet before a match, you will get a “risk free” bet to the same stake to use in-play. Unfortunately there is a maximum stake on qualifying bets, up to £50.  You have to use your own balance to place the in-play bet, but if it loses Bet365 Sports will replace your stake back in to your account balance.

Another fans favourite is the Channel 4, 4/1+ free bet promotion on the horse racing; this also applies to select “feature” races each day.  In summary if you back a 4/1 winner in the first race on Channel 4, you will get a “risk free” bet to the same value (win part only in an each way bet) on the very next channel 4 race.  Again you have to use your own balance to place the risk free bet, which Bet365 Sports will replace if you lose.

Social Media

To keep up on the latest sporting news, make sure you follow Bet365 Sports on Facebook and Twitter. We all know that things can change so rapidly in the sporting world, especially when it comes to football, horse racing and even rugby; so don’t be the last person to find out.

Customer Support

If you require assistance for any reason, you can access a representative 24/7 via telephone, email, web message, post or live chat.

Live chat is an excellent addition, as you can speak to one of the Bet365 Sports educated members to resolve any query quicker than any other method.  We have used this method on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed.

Likewise if you email a request through, they usually respond within 24 hours.  We’ve use this method when requesting odds on something that isn’t readily available on the site.

Banking Methods

Bet365 Sports accept a wide variety of methods including the usual Credit and Debit Cards, Neteller, PayPal and Skrill.

Did you know Neteller accept Boku payments? This means that you can actually deposit at Bet365 Sports and pay by mobile! It’s worth noting though that Neteller charge a small fee for this transaction.

Bet365 Sports – what we think

Despite not offering regular enhanced odds or bonus offers, compared to their competitors Bet365 Sports is still an incredible betting site. They offer one of the biggest welcome packages in the business, as well as being top of the odds on a regular basis. The small number of promotions they have can really boost your profits, so Bet365 Sports are definitely worth your consideration.

Welcome bonus and promotions subject to change.
