Bet365 Online Sportsbook Review
There are pretenders to the throne, and then there is the king itself: Bet365. Every bookmaker claims to be the best but, by some distance, Bet365 is the market leader. And that is no coincidence: it has invested hundreds of millions of pounds in its online sports betting product since morphing out of a tiny chain of physical betting stores in the English town of Stoke around the Millennium.
Bet365 sets the standard and everyone else tries to catch up.
Market dominance makes it easier to attract more players, of course, but it is no coincidence millions of customers choose it. It’s not just that it can spend more on advertising than other brands: it has the best product.
Particularly impressive when reviewing the site was the betting page. Navigation is simple while the betting options are almost limitless. You can also watch live sports streams for that ‘part of the game’ feeling, and which is particularly useful in territories with restricted live sports coverage on TV.
Bet365 offers 24/7 support in an incredible 12 languages – only an operator of the size of Bet365 could afford to offer that kind of service. But to be honest the site is so simple that anyone can use it, so it is unlikely you will have any need for customer service.
Bet365 sportsbook boasts what are arguably the best navigations out there. The biggest compliment you can make about it is that you don’t notice it, because it is intuitive. Virtually everything is a simple click away.
Powerful software enables the customer to wizz around the site with the speed of a Messi faint or jink. Bet365 has such a full list of sporting events it is unlikely there will be a serious match or contest that you can’t get a bet on with Bet365.
The odds are competitive and the betting options are almost limitless for the more advanced punter. We would recommend you check out the Live betting page on Bet365. It is quick and dependable with even more betting options and live streams – all you want.
Bet365 offers tasty match bonuses for first time depositors. Promotions differ from country to country as you need to consider that Bet365 is a product offered in a huge number of countries around the world.
A lot of sportsbooks fail to update regularly and major sporting events are not even mentioned unless you really look for them. But Bet365 will always have a promotion for a big match. The slick navigation works well for promotions, too, accessible from most points on the website. Bonuses are changed regularly so visit the promotion page from here to check new offers.
Some sites have some fairly tricky T&Cs to catch out the unwary punter but Bet365 understands that those kind of low tactics would damage its reputation. They are easy to understand and written for the punter, not the lawyers.

Some operators are only licensed out of a top floor postal address in Curacao. Bet365 in contrast has just about every license going, reflecting its status as global brand leader. Among the licenses it holds are the following (pretty well all the major ones really):
- Maltese Gambling Authority
- United Kingdom Gambling Commission
- Swedish Gambling Commission
- Danish Gambling Commission
In October 2020 the Regional Council of Darmstadt also awarded Bet365 a provisional license. This is part of new regulation in Germany that will see Bet365 become one of about 50 licensed German operators.
Please be aware for our many customers in Germany, the new licensing regime restricts some of the things you used to be able to do – eg there are strict deposit limits. This forces operators such as Bet365 to adapt its sports offer. But that will be the same with any licensed operator in Germany from now on.
Deposit Methods And Withdrawals
Having all these licenses enables Bet365 to offer a vast array of payment methods. This is crucial as getting your money in and out of a sports betting site is crucial. As well as some local payment methods relevant for specific territories you will always find the big PSPs at Bet365: VISA, MASTERCARD, NETELLER, SKRILL, TRUSTLY, EUTELLER, PAYSAFE CARD, BANK TRASNFER, etc. Withdrawals – and hey, to get that withdrawal is why we all bet – tends to be super-quick, provided of course that there have been no issues with your account verification.
Bet365 Account Verification
In some countries verification is undertaken automatically so you will not even be aware of it, but be ready to provide proof of age (ID or passport); proof of address (utility bill containing name and address) and your source of funds (SoFs). All the team at EagleBet have accounts with Bet365, and every single one of us – we come from a wide variety of countries – has found the verification process streamlined and easy.
As you would expect of a company with a massive reputation to defend, Bet365 is very hot these days on responsible gaming. Its licenses – and potentially huge fines – depend on it.
They offer easy tools such as account closure, deposit limits and a self-assessment questionnaire that is well worth a few minutes of your time to check if you are on top of your gambling. You can check out Bet365’s gaming page here.

Bet365 Sportsbook Review Summary
A review of bet365 almost writes itself. When we are reviewing other sites, we tend to compare it to Bet365 and work backwards – what does x site lack that Bet365 does have?
The key points for us are the super-smooth navigation, the very competitive and constantly updated promotions and the really quick and easy Bet365 pay-outs.
This all springs from the tech, which Bet365 has the resources to have developed in-house, bespoke to its needs, unlike so many online bookies which are essentially off-the-shelf products re-branded in a particular way.
We cannot recommend Bet365 more highly.
