Most recently famed for it’s television adverts starring Burt Kwouk, Bet 365 has become a real player in the sports book market. What it promotes the most is it’s ‘bet in play’ service that to be honest, is very similar to what most other bookies have on offer. OK, you are able to bet on many different markets while they are still in action, but this isn’t really something that differentiates Bet 365 from other sports book websites.
When you visit the Bet 365 website you will find that it does have quite a nice feel, even if it is a little bit ‘samey’. Perhaps the designers should take a leaf out of the Betfair or Party Bets book to make it look a little bit more exciting. Having said this, it is good that you can keep up to date with all the latest sports scores and results, check horse race form, and listen to all the main races live on it’s live radio stream.
At Bet 365 you do also have all of the extras that you would expect from a modern day internet bookie. If you get bored of the sports then you can take a peek at it’s casino, bingo hall, poker room, and games mini sites. There are bonuses available with each although we haven’t really dabbled in them to provide a verdict.
Bet 365 Free Bet-£100
Currently, you can get yourself up to £100 of free bets with Bet 365. Once you have opened an account, and have placed a bet worth £5 or more, Bet 365 will give you a free bet worth the same amount (up to £25). To receive the free bet you must copy and paste the offer code that will have been sent to you (ending in SNBB1) into your bet slip, and then click validate.
OK, so once you have received the first £25 bet, you are then able to receive up to another £75 in free bets. To qualify for an additional free bet, you are required to place a further 5 bets of £5 or more. You will then receive a free one to the value of the smallest of the 5 you have just placed. If you have wagered 5 x £25 then you will get a further £25. If you wagered 3 x £25 bets and 2x £10 bets then you will receive a free £10 bet. You can continue this process until you have received £100.
Please also bear in mind that any bets placed containing selections at odds of less than 1/2 do not count as qualifying bets.
You will be hard pushed to find a bookmaker with a standard market offering that exceeds that of Bets 365. As you would expect, all of the mainstream sports are available for you to bet on and they also have some more obscure offerings as well. Markets on offer include:
American football, Australian Rules, Athletics, Baseball, Basketball, Bowls, Boxing, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, Financials, Football, Gaelic Sports, Golf, Greyhounds, Horse Racing, Ice Hockey, Motor Sports, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Speedway, Tennis, Virtual Sports, Volleyball, Winter Sports, and many more.

In conclusion the general offering provided by Bet 365 is a good as most, although it could probably do with sprucing up its website. A few more flash elements to make it look a little livelier wouldn’t go a miss although the site is generally one that will keep your eyes fixed to the screen.
