Bet365 is one of those brands which need very little introduction, even to new players it’s likely that most individuals in the UK has some exposure to the Bet365 brand. Heavily concentrated on the high street along with TV advertisements and big sponsorships. As a company who is at the forefront of the industry our expectations are high for this brand over a wide playing field, from bonuses to the amount of games covered.
Bet365 pose very similar branding to Paddy Power, prominently green although their logo is a combination of white and gold. According to Bet365 they are the world’s favourite betting site along with streaming over 70,000 events each year. The website is a fully comprehensive gambling platform covering casino, games, Vegas, poker, bingo and traditional betting. Each gambling sector comes with their own features, bonuses and promotions.
Bet365 is a well-established brand and with that reputation comes high expectations of great offers, promotions and bonuses. The offerings are split for new customers and existing, listed below are a handful of promotions we found when carrying out this review, some appear to be seasonal whilst others appear to be permanent, such as the new customer welcome bonus. Here are the top bonuses offered at Bet365:
Welcome Bonus – £200
New customers on the Bet365 website can enjoy a 100% matched welcome bonus of up to £200. This offer is pretty straightforward however tethered to the welcome bonus is wagering requirements. For new players who aren’t aware of what wagering restrictions are it’s basically a minimum amount to bet before you can cash out the free credit. Users of this credit must be aware that any bets under ½ odds will not contribute to your wagering requirements.
Channel 4/1 Offer
This is primarily for horse racing bets and provides customers, both new and existing, with a risk free bet. The terms around the offer claim that any customer who backs any single winner at 4/1 or more will have a risk free bet deposited to their account up to £50. The rules are that the horse race must be broadcasted on channel 4 and this offer only applies to the first single bet placed by a customer on each live race. In addition to your first bet, if your first risk free bet turns into a winner you will keep being awarded risk free bets, if your stake loses then the original stake will be refunded to your account.
Each-Way first goal scorers
A great little offer if you have a flutter on football. The terms are simple, place a bet for an each-way goal scorer on any match and if you bet correctly Bet365 will pay out. “Each ways bets are settled on all goal scorers at 1/3 odds for unlimited places in 90 minutes of play.”
The promotions on the Bet365 website come in thick and fast, with multiple promotions being shown for different games it can be a little tricky to stay up to date with them all. Bet365 have a dedicated promotions section of the site which is split into Special Offers, Soccer, Horse Racing, Greyhounds, Other Sports, Australian Racing and mobile/tablet exclusive offers.
The coverage of Bet365 is seriously impressive, showcasing a massive portfolio of betting events.
