About Bet365

Since they launched their online business in 2001, they’ve been at the forefront of many of the industry’s innovations including being one of the first companies to offer live betting, livestreaming of sports events via their site and the very first to offer the option for customers to receive early payouts on bets that are highly likely to go on and win, sometimes also known as ‘cashout’.

They’ve been based in the English city of Stoke-on-Trent ever since the company started and have gained greater exposure by being the shirt sponsors of the Stoke City football team, who were a Premier League side for over a decade.

Bet365 Welcome Bonus and Promotions

Bonuses aren’t the be-all-and-end-all of a betting company but they’re an important part of it nonetheless and it’s always nice to get something ‘on the house’ when you first sign up, plus further bonuses down the line, as a reward for your loyalty.

Bet365 have an extremely competitive welcome offer and it’s worth signing up to receive notifications about further promos, straight to your e-mail or phone, so you don’t miss out on anything.

Bet365 Welcome Bonus

New customers can get 15% of their qualifying deposit in bet credits (up to ₹4,000) when making their first deposit. Depending on the deposit method, the minimum deposit can be as low as ₹350 but it’s worth making the most of the welcome offer and depositing more.

Bet365 VIP Promotions

Bet365 doesn’t have a loyalty scheme as such, which is perfectly normal for a Sportsbook. It’s mostly online casinos rather than Sportsbooks who have a tiered scheme where the more you play, the more you get back in terms of bonuses, cashback and other goodies.

But that’s not to say that your loyalty isn’t rewarded at all.  Even though it’s not set out in stone what you get and when, customers who are very active will get more bonuses than ones who aren’t. That’s mostly deposit bonuses but occasionally also free bets or risk-free bets.

Bet365 used to run a promo whereby you could refer friends to the company and got rewarded for each one who joined, but at the moment it’s not available. Let’s hope they bring it back because it’s good news for all concerned.

Sports Betting at Bet365

This is one of the areas where Bet365 really stands out from the crowd because they really do offer just about every sport under the sun.  Let’s start with our favourite: cricket. They cover just about every game under the sun, from Test cricket to one day internationals and Twenty20. And yes, the Indian Premier League (IPL) too, besides other popular cricket leagues such as the Big Bash.

There are also endless betting markets on Football (Soccer), Horse racing, Tennis, Motorsport, Basketball, American football, Baseball, Ice hockey and more, so it certainly doesn’t end there.

The likes of surfing, rugby, handball and darts are also available, as are MMA, which has become increasingly popular over the years, especially the UFC events.

Bet365 Mobile Sportsbook

One of the key requirements of a good betting company these days is a strong mobile product and in this regard, Bet365 fare very well.

You can either use your Bet365 account via the mobile version of the site or via the app and they both work in exactly the same way as they would on desktop. Bet365 have a reputation for offering one of the better mobile products, which is a result of some decent investment into developing it and with most people actually betting from their mobiles rather than desktop or laptop these days, it’s a big deal that it’s so good.

Banking Methods

Banking at Bet365 is incredibly easy for Indian players for two reasons. Firstly, banking is safe and secure as the online casino implements the latest encryption and firewall technologies to protect players’ sensitive financial transactions. Secondly, Indian players can choose any of the following methods to load their online casino gaming accounts and deposit in Indian Rupee. The minimum deposit amount varies with source.

  • Credit cards: MasterCard, Visa (min. deposit: ₹400)
  • Debit cards: Maestro, Visa Electron (min. deposit: ₹400)
  • Prepaid/virtual credit cards: AstroPay (min. deposit: ₹600)
  • Web wallets: NETELLER (min. deposit: ₹1,000), Skrill (min. deposit: ₹350)
  • Bank Transfer (min. deposit: ₹7,500)

The above mentioned methods are not only safe and reliable, but also absolutely free of charge. Most of them can be used for withdrawals as well, but the deposit/withdrawal limits depend on players’ preferred banking methods. Most of these banking methods are instant, but a few such as Bank Transfer may take up to one working day.

Please note that withdrawals on AstroPay are not supported.

Safety and Security

You don’t get to be the best-known betting company in the world unless you keep your house in order. They hold a gambling license in Gibraltar and take great care and attention to make sure that both your data and your money are always safe. That’s partly because they use SSL encryption, which is what banks use, as well. Essentially it means that the data is coded so that no-one can actually see the private elements of your details. Furthermore, the website operates an Information Security Management System (ISMS) to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information. The company’s ISMS has been certified in accordance with ISO/IEC 27001:2013, an internationally recognised standard for information security.

 

Customer Support Options

Bet365 offers Customer Service in 12 different languages including, crucially, English and French.

You can call them and speak on the phone of course but you can also use the Live Chat method if you prefer, which can turn out to be both cheaper and more efficient. They’re available 24/7 and on each occasion when we’ve contacted them in the past, they’ve been friendly, helpful and efficient. You can of course also use e-mail if it’s not an urgent query.

Like most betting companies, they have an FAQ section so many of your queries can be answered in that way, too.
