Bet365 Betting & Mobile App Review
Bet365 is the world’s biggest bookmaker with billions of dollars in turnover each year world-wide. Bet365 launched their Australian operation in 2012 and have received mixed reviews from punters. Bet365 does have an amazing product offering for customers and incredibly generous fixed odds but there are a few key issues that we feel does not justify a place in our top 5 Australian bookmakers.
Bet365 has the largest range of sports and racing betting markets available out of any of the Australian bookmakers. The Bet365 international football markets in particular offer a staggering amount of fixed odds for basically every competition in Europe. They also offer live steaming of all major sports and racing events each day that you can access via their website or mobile betting app. We think this is a really cool feature and is very well presented by Bet365 to their customers.
Bet365 Australia offer many positives betting products and services for their customers but they have been known to restrict and even cancel the betting account of punters who enjoy some success. This is a major negative for the Bet365 brand for us and the main reason they have not been considered for a position in our top 5 Australian bookmakers.
If you feel that you are just an average punter who would not be classified as a smart punter then Bet365 would be an excellent choice for a bookmaker but if you enjoy any success with your punting then you may run into trouble with them.
Bet365 Bonus Bets
Bet365 offer up to $200 in bonus bets when you open an account with them and make your first deposit. Considering that they are one of the biggest bookmakers in the world we feel the Bet365 $200 bonus bets that is on offer is pretty poor. Once you have opened your account they will match your first deposit but you will need to bet the amount of your qualifying deposit once before being able to bet with your bonus bets.
Once you open your account Bet365 will send you a 10 digit Offer Code ending in NCDBU via email. To participate in the bonus bet bonus offer, simply make a qualifying deposit, select Members from the Services menu, go to Offers in your Bet365 account login, then Enter Offer Code. You will not be able to withdraw your bonus and/or winnings generated from your bonus bets if you have not completed the turnover requirements within 90 days of entering your bonus Offer Code.
Once you make your Bet365 qualifying deposit and enter your Offer Code, the matched amount will be waiting for you in your bonus balance but you will not be able to bet with it until you “turn over” the amount of your qualifying deposit (capped at $200) once (x1). What this means is that if you deposit $100, you must place bets with a total turnover value of at least $100. You can achieve this through 10 bets of $10, a single $100 bet, or any combination of any bet quantities or amounts you wish as long as the total turnover value reaches at least $100.

Highlights of Bet365 live streaming service include Masters Series Tennis tournaments and matches from some of the top domestic Soccer leagues in the world.
One very nice Bet365 betting product we love is the Cash Out feature. The Cash Out feature gives you more control over your bets and allows you to take a return before the event has started. Traditionally, once your bet has been placed you would have to sit back and wait for it to be settled. With Bet365’s new feature you now have the opportunity to monitor your selections and Cash Out at a point of your choice.
The amount offered will be dependent on how your bet is progressing and could be of a higher or lower value than your original stake. This allows you to take a profit if your bet is doing well, or minimise any potential loss should you think any upcoming selections are unlikely to result in a win.
The Bet365 Cash Out is available on selected pre-match markets on single and multiple bets, for a variety of sports including Australian Rules Football, Soccer, Tennis and Basketball. Bets that are eligible for Cash Out will display in the My Bets section of your Bet Slip – and using Cash Out could not be easier. Simply place your single or multiple bet, then monitor the My Bets section of your Bet Slip to see the amount being offered to Cash Out early. Should you decide to take this option all you need to do is click on the Cash Out button located beneath your selections in your Bet365 betting account.
