Bet365 Review

Bet365 is one of the biggest privately owned online gambling companies of the world. Its main activity is arranging sports bets, but it offers its customers a series of other online gambling options as well, like poker, bingo, various casino games and soft games.

Bet365 was founded in 1999, and launched in 2000. At first it only offered sports betting services to its customers, but later it gradually added all other services to its product range. It has a customer base of over 14 million from 200 countries, and is considered the biggest gambling company with an exclusively online activity in Europe.


Creating an account with Bet365 is as simple as it can be – you fill out a web form, and you are done. The account can be used with all the operator’s services.

The Bet365 website is translated into 17 languages: English, German, Danish, Norwegian, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, Greek, Bulgarian, Greek, Portuguese, Polish, Czech, Slovenian, Romanian, Hungarian and Chinese.

Players from the USA and its territories, France, French Guyana, Guadeloupe, Hong Kong, Netherlands and Martinique are not accepted.


As a major international operator, the list of payment methods accepted by Bet365 is huge. It consists of the usual ones available for every player in the world (credit and debit cards, e-wallet services) plus a series of local methods available only for players residing in certain countries

The minimum deposit amount accepted by the operator is between €1 and €200, depending on the method chosen by the customer.

Players have separate real money accounts for sports betting, poker, casino and games/bingo/Vegas. They can either deposit in these directly or transfer funds to and from any of them.

The list of available withdrawal options is as long as the other one (with the deposits), complete with local and international payment methods for all countries. The minimum amount a player can withdraw is between €5 and €150, depending on the chosen payment method.

Depending on the method, withdrawals are processed in 1 hour to 28 business days.

Software and games

Bet365 operates an online casino, but it also offers its players two separate sections filled with great online video slots as well.

The Bet365 casino is powered by Playtech. Players can access their games either through a browser window (in smaller numbers, of course), or through a downloadable casino suite or mobile (both through dedicated apps and on a mobile browser).

The casino contains Playtech’s complete list of games, over 250 titles to choose from.

Players can choose one of the over 100 great Playtech slots, including those with progressive jackpots, plus a series of other casino games (including live dealer titles) like roulette, blackjack, craps, video poker, scratch cards, bingo, table games and many others.

The Games section contains the largest ever list of slots I have ever seen. There are hundreds of games to choose from, provided by various developers – Microgaming, Betsoft, Play’n Go, and many others. The list contains, besides the slots, a series of other casino style games, and arcade titles as well.

The Vegas section is my personal favorite – it has slot machines and other casino games provided by the Swedish developer Net Entertainment. I have tried quite a few slots in my life, but none were as entertaining and detail-rich as NetEnt slots.

Among them you can find titles like Gonzo’s Quest, The Wishmaster, The Lost Island, Aliens or Creature From the Black Lagoon, plus a series of other casino games, like casino card games, table games, arcade games and others.

Overall, I think I can safely state that Bet365 has one of the best game varieties of all the online gambling operators I know, with a special attention to the numerous slot machine fans out there.


As Bet365 is mainly a sports betting outlet, the best bonuses are for punters. But players of the other sections are also treated well by the operator.

Players of the Games and Vegas sections (these two use the same real money account) are rewarded with a basic 100% welcome bonus on their first deposit, up to €100, and a special reload bonus for Vegas players with 50% on their deposits plus free spins on various slot machines.

The casino has decent welcome offers for its new players:

– a 100% match, up to €100, for general casino players (bonus code BONUS100)
– a 200% match, up to €200, for slots fans (bonus code SLOTS200)
– a 50% match, up to €500, for high rollers who deposit €200 or more for their first time (bonus code VIP500)

The Bet365 casino has a series of special offers for its existing players as well.

The Slots Club rewards the most successful slot machine players with a bonus worth up to €250 every month.

The €3,000 Bonus Bundle offers players a series of reload bonuses each month, up to a total of €3,000.

The Bankroll Boost rewards deposits of €25 or more (with the bonus code BOOST) with 25% extra, up to €250.

The Reel Race rewards winners with extra cash, up to €500 each month.

The casino also has rewards for players on every Monday, based on their activity in the previous week.


Big, reliable and safe, and has the most complete game list (especially when it comes to slot machines) of all the casinos I have ever used. Bet365 is one of the best places to play at.
