Sportsbook basics: Key markets

While bet365 may lack for promotions, there is no shortage of betting options and sports on which you can wager. When it comes to types of bets available, you will find all of the standard ones, including:

  • Moneylines
  • Point spreads
  • Totals (over/under)
  • Teasers
  • Markets for halves, quarters, and periods
  • Alternative point spreads and totals
  • Parlays, including round robin and other varieties
  • Player, team, and game props
  • In-play betting
  • Futures

Within each of these betting types you’ll often find a healthy variety of options, in particular when it comes to in-play or live betting.

As with other sportsbooks, bet365 additionally offers a healthy amount of alternative bets (spreads and totals), adding a lot of variety to the wagers you can make on any particular contest.

We should also mention both the “Edit Bet” and “Cash Out” options on bet365. Edit Bet allows users to add, swap, or remove selections entirely, either for traditional pre-match bets (or parlays) or in-play bets. When you edit your bet, the existing prices are automatically updated to reflect current odds rather than the price you originally took. Thus, if you make a bet and then see a better price come along, you can edit your bet and get the better price.

Cash Out (when available) also enables bettors to call an audible after a bet has been made, enabling them to cash out bets before an event concludes, either entirely or partially (leaving some money “on the table” and in play).

You’ll find as well a wide range of different sports upon which to place wagers, including:

  • Australian rules football
  • Baseball
  • Basketball (NBA, NCAA and European leagues)
  • Boxing
  • Cycling
  • Darts
  • Football (NFL and NCAA)
  • Golf
  • Hockey
  • Mixed martial arts
  • Motor sports
  • Rugby
  • Soccer
  • Tennis

Also available for wagering are several “virtual sports” involving fictitious software-generated players and teams with outcomes entirely dictated by random number generators. Available virtual sports include cricket, cycling, darts, football, greyhounds, harness racing, horse racing, soccer, speedway, stock cards, tennis.

bet365 mobile app

The bet365 mobile app can be downloaded for free. For iOS users, go to the Apple store. For those using Android devices, visit bet365’s mobile site to download and install the .apk.

Powered by the Gaming Innovation Group (GiG), the app is exceptionally smooth and fast, with the non-complicated design likely contributing to its speed when loading. We experienced no lags or frozen screens when testing, and in fact when live betting and building a parlay we were able to open multiple live matches without any difficulties.

Once you do download it, you’ll see the app isn’t terribly fancy in terms of aesthetics. Even so, you will also soon discover the design is highly intuitive and doesn’t introduce any extraneous complications that sometimes make navigating an online sportsbook difficult.

The opening screen does include small illustrations delivering shortcuts to each sport in the top bar, the only real ornament to the otherwise bland green, yellow, and gray color scheme. Choose your desired sport or scroll down to see highlighted games, then click through to get to the contests you are seeking.

There’s a handy “A-Z” link in the upper left that slides out an alphabetical list of sports. Meanwhile along the bottom are three buttons — sports (the home screen), in-play (for live betting), and search (which allows you to type in team names or players to find them more quickly).

Click on a bet to place it on your Bet Slip, which slides up from the bottom of the screen, and when ready click the slip, enter your amount(s), and place your bet(s).

As further evidence of bet365’s international background, whether on the app or web-based platform bettors can toggle between American, fractional, decimal, or American/fractional odds, and also set one of 20 different languages as a preference.

bet365 web-based platform

The web-based version of the bet365 online sportsbook is similarly focused on the business of betting without a lot of extraneous flash or frills.

Those accessing bet365 via their desktops or laptops will need to install the GeoComply plug-in for their browsers. A link for the download is easy to spot along the top of the screen.

The design of the web-based platform smartly uses all of the extra space available on the wider computer screen, with a four-column layout featuring the list of sports on the left, current live in-play betting and upcoming matches in the center, and the bet slip followed by other available games on the right.

There are some handy shortcuts up top (although you have to know where and what they are) — buttons that by clicking bring up pop-up windows with the betting news articles and statistics, plus another that toggles the layout to three columns, if you prefer.

Also along the top ruler (on the left) are quick links to in-play betting, the bet365 casino, to the bonuses and promotions, to help and support, and to information about responsible gaming. Again, though, you will probably have to find out by experimenting that the link to the special offers is labeled “Extra.”

When looking at the in-play tab, you’ll find a similar-looking three-column layout that also includes an ability to star favorite sports or contests and thus customize the left-most column to highlight games on which you are focusing.

Again, as with the app, most games have “gamecast”-type animations to help track the action.

You have to scroll to the bottom to find the links for banking.

Pricing and lines at bet365

When it comes to pricing and lines offered on bet365, you’ll discover the majority of spreads and totals are similar to what is found at other U.S. sportsbooks. There are exceptions here and there, but most of these are set at -110.

Moneylines vary a bit more, often depending on the sport. We’ve found, for example, the baseball moneylines often on the generous side while the football moneylines tilt the other way. As always, odds are subject to change

Again, when it comes to pricing live in-play betting is where bet365 also shines, a reflection of the company’s significant bookmaking experience. For those who are serious about live betting, having good pricing in those lines is a great positive, and bet365 certainly offers that.

Deposits and withdrawals

Speaking of banking, there are numerous options for both funding your bet365 account and withdrawing, including but not limited to:

  • Online banking
  • ACH/e-Checks
  • PayPal
  • Cash deposit at casino
  • Visa/MasterCard
  • PayNearMe
  • paysafecard
  • Skrill
  • PayPal

Most of those same methods are available as options to withdraw, including, but not limited to:

  • Online banking
  • Skrill
  • ACH/e-Checks
  • PayPal
  • Cash deposit at casino

More about bet365

bet365 first launched in New Jersey in August 2019 with the Hard Rock Hotel Casino Atlantic City as its retail partner.

Meanwhile bet365 has additionally partnered with Empire Resorts and the Resorts World Catskills casino in New York for their retail sportsbook, with plans to open an online sportsbook as soon as the state’s lawmakers and regulators give the go-ahead to do so. It’s a 20-year partnership between bet365 and Empire Resorts, so even if it takes New York a while they will be there and ready when the time comes.

That could be just the beginning for bet365 in the United States, as many more potential state markets await.
