Are they trustworthy?
Yes, very much so. Bet365 is probably one of the safest places for your money. They have operated for a long time and have never been called into question.
They are one of the bookmakers that make the effort to get a license to be able to operate in the UK betting market. This means they have to observe a lot more scrutiny and proof of fair play.
The only bad side about them is that they seem to be fast in limiting the bet sizes of good bettors.
Bonuses and Promotions
Bet365 has lots of bonuses for a variety of games and special occasions. But they like to tailor each bonus to specific regions and even players, so the best way to figure out is to login and check whats available for you under the 'my bonuses" section after you login.
For first time players you can read about the promotions, in the menu in the top left.
Unfortunately that is as specific we can be, but they often give reloads and various gifts to their loyal players.
Always use correct credentials when signing up to any sportsbook or online casino.
Otherwise you will end up going through a lot of trouble when cashing out your winnings.
What Can You Bet On?
You have lots of betting options here.
(That should go without saying though.)
Let’s start with cricket – what are some of the sub-markets and betting options you’ll have?
- T10 league
- Any test series
- County championship division 2
- Big bash womens league
- Twenty20 World Cup
- Ashes Series
- World Cup 2019
See what I mean? Plenty of options for cricket fans. They appear to have bets for almost every cricket league with stadiums in the entire world.
If you are trying your hand at IPL betting online, you will find a massive amount of betting options and live odds at Bet365.
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.
This is open to any Bet365 account holder who has at least a $1 balance.
What about other markets?
I’m glad you asked.
While our focus is on cricket, you can also bet on all major sports. And if you have more exotic tastes they even have markets like:
- Table Tennis
- Aussie Rules
Etc. This is the tip of the iceberg.
The best part – their in-play coverage, live streaming – the whole shebang – is compatible with (their) iOS and Android apps.
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:
- Visa/Visa Debit
- Bank Wire
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 when depositing, except for bank wires and checks which usually take a couple of days.
Now, let’s look at what bet 365 can offer you once you make your deposit.
Its nice that the bet365 software is one of their own design. This makes the whole package seem more coherent than many other software engines we have tested.
Everything loads fast both on mobile and desktop versions. The in-play version is very detailed and include lots of stats in addition to the live stream(Things like the Mzansi league they actually stream for free). For mobile users you can decide if you want to use the app or browser of your choice.
Its easy to navigate between different sections. But its a bit insulting that the cricket section is sometimes so far down on the list.

Is bet365 legal in India?
As with most online gambling the law is a bit murky. Online gambling is technically illegal in India, but since bet365 isn’t in India it becomes a bit more complicated. Most states don't even have a law for online gambling at all.
If you want a review of this issue look at our Cricket betting in India section.
Most likely the biggest problem people will encounter is trouble paying with credit cards and the like.
It appears bet365 would prefer that you use their dedicated help site rather than talking to them directly.
This can be seen by the lack of live-chat icon on the site. And the amount of work that they have put into the help section. It is actually pretty nice to use and helpful for most questions about betting.
So they don't have any customer support??
You can relax, just click on 'contact us' and you get livechat, email and phone as much as you would like.
Their support is very fast and seems to be operated by actual human beings.
