Lots of punters are worried about being ripped off online.
And for good reason. There are a lot of crooks out there.
But Bet365 is not one of them. Not even close.
For starters, Bet365 is one of the largest private companies in the UK. So big, in fact, that if they were to pull any shenanigans the authorities would be all over them.
And they have more than 19 million customers worldwide. So, believe me when I say that it’s in their interest (more money to be made) to be above board.
Okay, so they’re a legit company who won’t screw you over.
But are they a good choice for cricket bettors?
Well, I don’t want to give the entire review away, but according to sharps much smarter than I, Bet365 is one of the top sportsbooks period – cricket or otherwise.
You can use this link to sign up now. Or, you can read our review below to learn more about what they have to offer.
Bet365 accepts players from all over the world.
The point? They have to accept lots of different payment options.
Here’s a shortlist of payment options they accept:
First thing – you can use this list for both deposits and cash outs.
Second thing – most options here have a min deposit of $1-$5. This is great for bettors on a budget.
Third thing – all of these options clear instantly, except for bank wires and checks which usually take a couple of days.
Now, let’s look at what offers you can have once you make your deposit.
There are a lot of our readers that contact us asking us how to create an account at Bet365. We decided to create a video that shows the entire process which you can view above or at youtube. If you should have any additional questions regarding depositing money or in setting up your account the customer service at Bet365 will more than likely be able to help – if not, shoot us an email!
Bet365 has a core offer that’s available to all first time depositors.
This offer is a 100% match bonus up to $100. And here’s the catch:
First, you’ll need to settle bets at 3x your total deposit. Second, you’ll need to meet those terms within 90 days of making your (first) deposit.
Third and fourth – there are certain bets you can’t make, or countries you can’t make bets from. It’s a lot to cover, though, so I recommend reading their terms and conditions before taking Bet365 up on this offer.
That’s it for general offers.
Unfortunately, like 888, Bet365 does not have any cricket-specific offers. But they do rotate offers often, so this can change at any time.
If you’re into other sports, though – and most bettors are – Bet365 does have other sport-specific offers.
Euro Soccer Bonus – Earn up to 100% on accumulators.
This applies to returns on pre-match accumulators of 3 or more selections. The selections must be Full Time Result or Result/Both Teams to Score for these markets: Premier League, Series A, Primera Liga, Bundesliga 1 or Champions League.
Parlay Bonus – Earn up to 50% more on American/Canadian sport parlays.
Aussie Footy Multi Bet Bonus – Earn up to 65% more on pre-game multi bets on major footy leagues.
Just check out their promo tab for more details. You’ll find offers for all kinds of markets, including soccer, tennis, horse racing and greyhounds.
(That should go without saying though.)
Let’s start with cricket – what are some of the sub-markets and betting options you’ll have?
See what I mean? Plenty of options for cricket fans.
Everything is easy to find, too. You can sort matches by all or matches running with the next 24 hours.
You can also stream live cricket matches. More than 70,000 matches stream each year, which is on top of their live audio feeds.
One thing worth noting – I have seen complaints about their in-play portal being slow to load. But I’d bet this depends on each person’s internet speeds.
I’m glad you asked.
While our focus is on cricket, you can also bet on markets like:
Etc. This is the tip of the iceberg.
You can do live streaming with most – if not all – of their markets. This is free to any Bet365 account holder who has at least a $1 balance.
The best part – their in-play coverage, live streaming – the whole shebang – is compatible with (their) iOS and Android apps.
The same can’t be said for other devices because I don’t have own any. But I’d assume they can visit and use Bet365’s mobile-responsive site.
Okay, end of the road.
How does Bet365 fare? Should cricket bettors join?
Yes – I give them an A. Which is a slightly better rating than 888.
Where they drop the ball?
Pretty minor in the grand scheme of things, no?
At the end of the day, 19 MILLION customers can’t be wrong. Bet365 is one of the best sportsbooks out there.
