The minimum bet to qualify for this offer is just £1, so you don’t need to place a big stake if you don’t wish to. The maximum bonus you can receive is £50.
The same terms and conditions (turnover requirement, excluded bets, time frame) as the open account offer apply.
If you love football betting, you can find markets on just about any league imaginable with Bet365. We thoroughly recommend this operator as one that stands out from the competition.
There are a broad selection of bets to choose from, with virtually limitless handicap options. This is an added benefit for experienced punters seeking out more complex bets.
Even better, there are several regular football-related promotions to add extra excitement:
- Euro Soccer Bonus: get up to 100% extra winnings on your European football accumulator
- Bore Draw Money Back: Refunds on Correct Score, HT/FT and Scorecast bets when a match finishes 0-0 (applies to certain matches only)
- Each-Way First Goalscorers: If your player scores at any time during the game, your EW bet will be settled at 1/3 odds.
Let’s take a look at some of the offers for fans of horse racing and greyhound racing. These will particularly grab the attention of punters who enjoy having a bet while following racing on TV.
- Price Promise: Best price guaranteed on every horse for all races shown live on Channel 4 (offer runs until 30/06/2016)
- Channel 4/1 Offer: Get a matched risk-free bet of up to £50 when you back a winner at odds of 4/1 or greater (for races shown on Channel 4)
- Feature Race 4/1 Offer: As above, but applies to Bet365 Feature Races (2 per day when there is no racing on Channel 4)
- Best Odds Guaranteed: Take the odds on your selection and, if the SP is bigger, you will get paid out at the better odds. Applies to all horse races and greyhound races.
- Sky Dogs: A matched risk-free bet of up to £100 when you back a winner at 2/1 or bigger (for races shown on Sky Sports)
As an international sports and racing betting provider, Bet365 also has special offers on racing from Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
Don’t forget to check the terms and conditions for each of these offers to avoid any confusion.
Accumulator bonuses on other sports
With betting available on 30 different kinds of event, you might want to have a dabble on other sports. There are accumulator bonuses available on sports like tennis, basketball and Aussie Rules football, as well as a Parlay Bonus for North American leagues like the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL.
A winning accumulator always gives great satisfaction, as you know you have to be 100% spot on with all your selections. Extra cash on top of your winnings too, that’s the icing on top of the cake!
As a new casino player with Bet365, you can benefit from a 100% bonus when you use the code above and make a first deposit of at least £10. The maximum bonus amount you can receive is £100.
An important requirement of this promotion is that you will have to wager the deposit + bonus amount 20 times before making a withdrawal, within the time limit of 30 days.
Not all games contribute at the same rate towards these wagering requirements. Some don’t even contribute at all, so check the weightings in the T&Cs before playing through.
Like most major betting and gaming operators, Bet365 has an extensive offering of casino-style games, split between the Casino, Games and Vegas sections (not forgetting poker of course but we’ll get onto that later). You will find tabs for each of these in the menu at the top of your screen when you log in.
The main Bet365 casino section has a variety of games on the “featured games” landing screen. The main promotions are displayed at the top of the screen while you can access games divided by section: slot games, card games, table games, video poker, games & keno, jackpots; via a menu on the left hand side.
There is also a live casino section which offers a choice of 9 different games, with either European or Asian theme. You can use your welcome bonus to play on live casino if you wish, although the same wagering requirements and game weightings apply.
More casino deals
If you’re feeling at home at the Bet365 casino, you may want to keep playing once you have played through your first 100% bonus. By playing you will accrue comp points which can be exchanged for real cash. Working your way up the VIP scheme, greater rewards are given based on your bronze, silver or gold status.
The regular On The House event offers a 20% rebate on any losses during the promotional period, up to a maximum of £200. It’s a nice way to take the sting out of a run of bad luck, but you’ll still need to wager the rebate amount 20 times before being able to withdraw it.
Viva Las Vegas & games galore
Like many online casinos, Bet365 have a dedicated Vegas section, featuring over 85 games across the following categories: Premium Slots, Video Slots, Table & Card, Arcade.
In terms of promotions, you can access a similar new player bonus of 100% up to £100, a 25% reload weekend bonus and slots prize giveaways.
The Games section is divided into Premium Slots, Bonus Slots, Video Slots, Table Games, Arcade and Jackpots. As you can see, the categories are very similar to those in the Vegas section.
A 100% matched bonus up to £100 can also be secured when you first deposit or transfer at least £10 into the Games part of your Bet365 account. There is no need to enter any further code to use this promotion.
The same terms apply with regards to the minimum qualifying deposit (£10), wagering requirements (20x) and time limit (30 days).
You can only have one active bonus at any given time, so you’ll need to play through one before trying to get another.
New poker players at Bet365 can get a welcome package with a value of up to €110. This includes:
- €5 for free when you create your nickname in the poker software
- 100% matched first deposit bonus up to €100 (released gradually by accumulating Merit Points)
- Tournament tokens worth €5
Plus, the amount is credited as euros, so exchange rates come into play when doing the maths on your balance. The rate remains frozen while you have funds at a table but it might still be somewhat confusing for a beginner.
Compared with poker, bingo players have a more consequential welcome package to gain by joining Bet365 in our opinion. The welcome package is broken down into three main parts.
200% first deposit bonus
When you make a first deposit of £10 or more, you’ll be eligible for this bonus, which carries a maximum value of £100. To qualify for the maximum, you would need to make a deposit of £50.
Once you make your qualifying deposit, you will receive an email containing a Bet365 offer code. You’ll need to log in and activate this bonus manually on your account.
Bear in mind that the deposit itself is non-withdrawable and you will need to play through the amount of your bonus four times on bingo tickets in order to withdraw any winnings.
£20 slots bonus
When you first stake £10 on either bingo or slots, you’ll receive a £20 slots bonus. This must be wagered 20 times on slots within 14 days in order to become withdrawable.
The following games will not contribute toward the wagering requirements: Luck O’ The Irish, Magic Wand, Planet Moolah, Big Vegas, Lobster Mania.
Welcome Party prizes
By registering a chat name you will have access to the Welcome Party room for a week. There are over £1,000 worth of prizes to win and the best part is you don’t have to pay a penny to play.
If you’re lucky enough to claim a prize, you’ll have to wager the winnings four times before they become withdraw-able.
The provider has vastly updated and improved its sports betting mobile app. Available in 18 different languages on iPhone, iPad and Android devices, users can:
- Bet directly through the app (both live and pre-game) on the full selection of markets
- Use their £50 free bet
- Live streaming on football, tennis, basketball, and horse racing
- Manage their account (e.g. view balance, view history, deposit, withdraw)
- Follow news and tips on upcoming races
- Instant wagering thanks to the Quick Bet option
What’s more, dedicated apps also exist for other services like casino, live casino, bingo and poker.
There are a whole host of payment options for players wishing to fund their Bet365 account. All are free and most payments will be processed immediately, so you can deposit and bet right away. However, some methods have different limits or processing times, particularly for withdrawals, so let’s go through these and examine which is the most advantageous for the player.
In all cases, the name on the payment method must match that on your Bet365 account, as you are not allowed to bet on behalf of, or be funded by, someone else.
Using a payment card is the most common way to deposit and withdraw. You can make payments through Visa and MasterCard credit cards, as well as the range of debit cards belonging to those companies. A third card payment option is EntroPay, a pre-paid Visa card.
|Payment method||Minimum deposit||Maximum deposit||Processing time||Fee|
Good news for those of you who like to use eWallets for secure payments online: unlike many bookmakers, it appears that Bet365 currently allow eWallet deposits for the 200% up to £200 sports betting bonus. Many bookies say that they restrict the use of promos when paying with an eWallet due to ‘bonus abuse’ or players signing up with multiple different accounts in order to try and guarantee a profit from their offers. However, fair play to Bet365 for being more flexible with their terms.
|Payment method||Minimum deposit||Maximum deposit||Processing time||Fee|
We suspect that most of you will be covered by the payment methods listed above. The reality is that when we are looking to get a bet on, it is usually an instinctive thing that we want to do right away, so a deposit method that takes several days is not going to do the trick.
However, far be it from us to judge you and your preferred payment option! If you want to deposit using a bank transfer or cheque, here are the details:
|Payment method||Minimum deposit||Maximum deposit||Processing time||Fee|
|Bank Wire||£5||£25,000||2 – 10 banking days||Free|
|Fast Bank Transfer||£5||£8,000||1 – 3 banking days||Free|
|Cheque||£100||£50,000||5 – 28 banking days||Free|
Generally speaking, you have to withdraw to the same payment method you used to deposit into your account in the first place. Although not stated explicitly by Bet365, this is likely due to legislation designed to prevent money laundering.
Bet365 allow withdrawals to Pay Safe Card, which is not the case for all online bookies. If you use this method, the withdrawal will be processed within 24 hours and you can then use those funds anywhere else that Pay Safe Card is accepted.
When it comes to timescale, eWallets will receive the money within 24 hours, quicker than bank cards, which can take 1 – 3 banking days. The obvious flipside is that you then have to jump through another hoop to transfer the money to your bank account. To get your hands on the cash as quickly as possible, a debit card is best.
The minimum and maximum limits are roughly the same for withdrawals as for deposits, so refer to the tables above if in doubt. One point of note is that if you are lucky enough to be making a massive withdrawal (we’re talking upwards of £20k here!), this will likely have to be done by bank transfer.
All amounts expressed above will vary if you are using another currency. To get an idea of the currencies accepted by Bet365, see the section below.
For punters in other countries, you can still enjoy the benefits of playing with the operator. However, there are some different limits depending on the country and your currency. If you’re not sure whether you can use this bookie from your country, take a look at our list of countries where Bet365 is legal or banned.
