Bookmaker Reviews: Bet 365
Catering to betting enthusiasts from over 120 countries via their chain of sports bookmaking shops and their telephone and internet betting services,Bet365 is one of the world’s premier online sports bookmakers. With a superb in-play betting service it’s easy to see why it reportedly accounts for 50% of the sportsbook’s revenue stream.
To accompany the in-play service Bet365 also offers a high-definition live streaming service for punters to watch whilst making their bets.
A huge selection of events is available to you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year (hence the name) through their easily navigated website. Shortly after selecting your username and password you can start depositing funds and wagering on whatever takes your fancy, before and during an event…just not after, unfortunately.
On Bet365.com there’s a big focus on European football’s domestic leagues, but they also cover a wide range of other sporting events from around the world, such as:
American football, Australian rules football, athletics, badminton, baseball, basketball, boxing, cricket, cycling, darts, football, futsal, GAA (Gaelic)sports, golf, greyhounds, horseracing, ice hockey, motor racing, Olympics, pool, rugby league and union, snooker, speedway, tennis, UFC, volleyball and a host of winter sports. Click on the ‘More Sports’ tab and you’ll also find badminton, bandy, curling, floorball, handball, pelota, trotting and water polo.
At bet365 the odds are explained in all the three main formats: decimal, American and fractional and not only are the odds easy to understand, at Bet365 you’ll also get better prices on those odds compared to many of the other large online bookmakers.
If you’re betting with Bet365 it’s likely that you’re there for the in-play features which, as we say, are pretty awesome. However, Bet365 also offers live audio commentary and round-ups on horseracing, greyhounds, football and cricket and their ‘Form and Stats’ directory is probably the best there is, with in-depth statistical info on football, horseracing, cricket, rugby and several major US sports.
