Any fixture/event on our website which has the Play or Video icon next to it is scheduled to be shown via Live Streaming.

Banking at Bet365

In our opinion, bet365 has one of the biggest selections of options for banking available out of any betting site. But don’t take our word for it, check with the bookmaker directly to see the complete list of options available in your country.

Sportsbook Features

star iconstar iconstar iconstar iconstar icon
  • Features we like: Live streaming of games is what separates this book from others.

With a customer base as big and varied as bet365 has, you can imagine what a vast selection of leagues they’d have to keep available. Combine this with their dedication to live in-game betting, and you get the most dynamic sportsbook around. Literally anytime day or night there are multiple things to watch on their live streaming service and wager on as it happens. Sometimes we find ourselves waking up early to make some quick bets on Korean baseball or Aussie Rules football – things we would never have been into otherwise, but the sheer variety of wagers able 24/7 can easily induce excitement.

Their streaming service, by the way, is very well done. Even if you’re just a casual bettor who enjoys watching sports and races, the streaming alone is probably worth keeping a bet365 account for. To retain this excellent feature, we learned that you’re required to either have a funded account or have placed a bet within 24 hours.

If that’s still not enough to bet on, the sportsbook also offers a wide variety of specials betting on entertainment and politics. Or try your luck at a foreign lottery or one of several virtual sports and races like betting on computer-generated animals or athletes. We’ve never been quite sure how one would have a profitable time with these. You’re just picking winners based on which has your favorite name or color. These are all just for fun, and a serious punter would not need the distraction with the incredible betting selection that bet365 already offers.

Bet365 Site Experience

  • Ease of use for betting: Arguably the best UI available today. Super clean and user-friendly.
  • Mobile betting: Excellent mobile site & dedicated mobile apps. Also offers live-streaming.

Their mobile sportsbook app is also among the best around. The full sportsbook experience is right there on your tablet or mobile including all the live in-game betting as well as the smooth live-streaming platform. We love using the app at the racetrack as it even includes the racing form and we can bet without leaving my seat.

Customer Service

star iconstar iconstar iconstar iconstar icon

Customer service at bet365 has always been superb, and as their name suggests they’re usually available to talk to at any time. Phone calls are typically answered in seconds even if you’re calling at the peak time such as before a big match (or calling at 3 AM trying to bet on Mexican basketball). They have several contact numbers listed to help those in other countries to avoid long distance charges, but as far as we can tell their entire call center operation is in England. Everyone we’ve dealt with has been very knowledgeable, courteous, and well trained. Emails are also answered promptly. They also had a wide variety of language options for those who aren’t entirely comfortable speaking in English.

In general, if you were worried about dealing with a more substantial company like this, fear not, as they’re very approachable and accommodating. Other significant organizations should take a page from bet365’s book when it comes to customer service.
