Ryan's Thoughts"With over 19 million customers around the world, bet365 is a name that demands respect. They are experts in live streaming, so bet365 accounts are a passport to some of the biggest and best sporting events on the planet. Owned by the Coates family, bet365 retains a community feel despite its size and the fact the company remains in Stoke is a big plus point as well. From small beginnings, bet365 has grown into one of the largest private companies in the UK."

bet365 Bookmaker Review

Sign Up Bonuses

Many will find the bet365 sign-up bonus to be the most appealing on the internet. Here's how it works.

VIP Loyalty Program

No specific loyalty program is available for sportsbook users at bet365, which is one of the very few negatives about using this bookmaker. They do however run regular new sportsbook offers and specials.

Mobile Betting App Features on Tablets and Smartphones

As previously mentioned, bet365's major strength is in live streaming, with matches available to watch on the go via its app, which can be downloaded to tablets, Android devices and iPhones. Those who prefer not to download a betting app will find the bet365 mobile site to be highly responsive and very user-friendly too. One of the best features on the app is the chance to follow all current in-play bets in the same place - perfect if you are thinking whether or not to cash out.

Maximum Winnings

Compared to many other online betting sites, the maximum winnings on offer at bet365 are very high. For most top football markets, the maximum winnings are a whopping £2 million, while more minor competitions like the English National League have a maximum payout of £500,000. Those who want to bet on the Austrian Bundesliga, for example, can win up to £100,000 and the limit is £50,000 for the qualifying rounds of major competitions like the Champions League.

UK and Ireland horse races have a maximum payout of £1 million - when an industry starting price (SP) is declared - and this is cut to £250,000 for overseas races with an industry SP. For races without a declared industry SP, the maximum payout on horse racing at bet365 is £100,000.

There is also a maximum payout for £1,000,000 on greyhounds, while the most that can be won on cricket is £500,000, on golf/the NFL it is also £500,000 and it is reduced to £250,000 for motorsports, cricket, boxing and UFC.

Football Accumulators

A terrific Euro Soccer accumulator offer gives bet365 users a bonus of up to 100% on accumulators when at least three selections have been made. Here's how it works out:

Bet Type Bonus

Customer Service

A top set of FAQs is the starting point for bet365's customer service, but there is also extensive live chat capability available for anyone who is struggling to find an answer to their query. Freephone numbers are available for those who wish to use the phone to get in touch with a customer service agent, while support-eng@customerservices365.com is the main email address.

In Conclusion / Our Verdict

It is clear that bet365 deserves its place among the elite online betting sites in the world. With market-leading live streaming, in-play markets and sportsbook odds, there are few weak points in its offering. The 100% deposit sign-up bonus is one of the best around and regular promotions are enough to keep customers coming back for more as well. It is easy to fully recommend bet365.
