Bet365 Sports Review & Free Bet

Bet365 is one of the most popular sports betting sites so if you are familiar with online sports betting then I am sure this review will be of interest to you. The betting giants were founded in 2000 by the ‘Coates Family’ in North Staffordshire and as of 2019 have hit turnovers exceeding £52.6 billion. Bet365 is a highly rated company and this is for many reasons, the Staffordshire based business offer such a wide range of services for their users to enjoy and that is why we definitely feel they have excelled and turned out to be a successful as they are.

Website Layout:

In my opinion Bet365 have done exceptionally well with their website and how it is laid out. Once you have entered the website you will be able to view all the available sports which are able for the user to choose from. At the center of the page is all the live events and fixtures that are taking place at that moment, along with this there are the betting odds which have been placed next to the fixtures, so it does not confuse the user. At the top left of the page is the classic ‘Bet365’ logo which is in a white and yellow font, this looks great in my opinion as it catches the attention of the user however it is not to big or out of place, so it looks great as it is with the medium sized clear font. At the far right side of the page are various offers on different sports such as, Football and Horse Racing.  Along with this is a live clock which displays the time of the country which the user is browsing from and the option to ‘sign in’ or ‘join now’.  There are 3 small tabs which have been placed on the right side which are, ‘Betting News’, ‘Sports Stats’ and the option to ‘Enlarge’ the page.


Bet 365 have included a wide range of options for their users to choose from. Any all rounded sports fan will enjoy using the Bet365 website to browse the potential sports they can place bets on. One of the key reasons that Bet365 are successful and different to their competitors is because of the range of sports they offer, these include Football, Basketball, Baseball, Bowls, Ice Hockey, Horse Racing, Rugby Union, Snooker, Tennis, Cycling, Boxing, Cricket, MMA, Greyhounds and Gaelic.

Welcome Bonus:

New users who sign up to create a new account with Bet365 can take advantage of the welcome bonus offered to them. For new customers, there is an ‘open account offer’ which offers new customers up to £100 in Bet Credits. A minimum deposit of £5 is required in order for the user to take advantage of the offer.  Bet365 is a renowned betting company and this is because of many reasons, one of the main reasons that they attract so many new customers are because of the amount of Bonus Promotions they offer. There are always different offers for various sports and also promotions which are used to entice the user to join. Some of which include, “Euro Soccer Bonus”, “Tennis Accumulator Bonus”, “NFL Early Payout Offer” and many more which can be viewed on the “special offers” page of the Bet365 website.

In Play Betting:

Over the last decade there has been an explosion of live betting and its popularity with betting customers all over the world has increased. Bookmakers have realized how appealing and popular in play betting is and therefore most, if not all bookmakers offer this service. Despite there being many bookmakers who offer this service, I would definitely class Bet365 as my personal favorite for In Play Betting.  Bet365 have done an exceptional job on their In Play betting page and is a favorite with many betting fans because of how many sports can be used with in play betting. Some of the sports which can be used with in play betting are, Basketball, tennis, ice hockey, cricket, golf, horse racing and greyhounds. For those who are football fans then Bet365 is defientley the platform for you as they have the most comprehensive menu of in play football betting.

The way In play betting works is straightforward and simple. This popular feature allows the user to place bets after the event has started. This means that the user can react to what is happening in the event whilst it is ongoing and gives the option for the user to stick with their decision or change their mind about the outcome of the event.

Payment Methods/Client Support:

Paying on Bet365 is simple and easy for the user, so keeping up to date with your online account should not be an issue. All the well known and popular payment methods are accepted. These include, Mastercard, Visa Debit, Visa Electron and Maestro. The increasingly popular and efficient method of E-wallets are also available to the user. Bet 365 have stated that the money usually takes around 1-2 working days to go in the customer’s bank account. The company have also said that Non UK issued cards usually take 3-5 working days to receive the money. Card withdrawals will be shown on the customer’s statement as ‘b365’ or ‘bet365’. In terms of help and support for clients, Bet365 are exceptionally reliable and make sure that their customers do receive the best support possible. Live chat, Telephone and Email are all offered to users 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


Overall, I feel that Bet365 is defientley the best Sportsbook in my opinion. When analyzing the website and what they have to offer, it really is quite hard to fault the Staffordshire based company. The website is extremely neat and compact which makes it easy to navigate for the user. Along with this, the amount of bonus offers that are available to the user is great because there are different ones available for different sports, this meaning that the user isn’t limited to bet on just one. There are over 10 sports to bet on and also popular features such as ‘in play’ betting are available. I genuinely feel that the website is one of the best I have ever seen, this is mainly because of the easy navigation and tabs that are there, whilst also taking into consideration the green and yellow colour theme which is appealing to the eye yet also professional. Bet365 have definitley taken time and care with their customers to provide the best that they possibly can, an online app is also available for IOS and Android users, this shows that Bet365 have taken the younger audience into consideration as that is the type of audience who are usually betting on their phones due to the convenience. I really am struggling to think of any disadvantages of the company, however if I was to pick out an improvement then I would suggest that Bet365 remove the ads from the website as it can be a bit off putting when the user is trying to focus on one part of the page and there are ads popping up on the side.
