Bet365 are the biggest and most popular online bookmaker in the UK – below we detail the bonuses and site features that set them apart.
Sign-up with Bet365, desposit £10 or more and you will qualify for a 100% matched amount, of up to £200, as a bonus to bet with.
Simply click the link below to register and they will email you a 10 digit Offer Code ending NCDB2. After you make your first deposit, visit the ‘Enter Offer Code’ page in the ‘Members’ section and enter your code to get the 100% bonus:
You must have settled bets to the value of three times your qualifying deposit and bonus before withdrawing this bonus money. For example, deposit £25, get a free £25 bonus and you can only withdraw the full £50 once you’ve staked £150.
Bore Draw 0-0 Money Back
This insurance means you’ll get your money back on losing football bets in ALL matches which end in a goalless draw.
The offer covers pre-match bets on certain popular markets – Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time and Scorecast – with the refunds being paid out as cash rather than free bets, meaning you can withdraw your stake should you wish to.
First Goalscorer Each-Way
Also on football, Bet365 have a market-leading offer for each-way First Goalscorer bets – paying unlimited places. This means that you are guaranteed an each-way pay-out if your First Goalscorer selection scores at any time in the game, unlike with other firms who only pay five places (5 goals).
ITV Racing 4/1 Risk Free Bet
This is probably their most popular offer, designed to enhance punter’s enjoyment of the live horse racing on ITV. If you back any winner at odds of 4/1 or more on a UK or Irish race televised live on ITV1 or ITV4, Bet365 will give you a risk free bet to the same value to place on the next live ITV race.
Also, if your risk free bet wins at odds of 4/1 or more you also qualify for a risk free bet on the next televised race…and so on.
The risk free bet offer covers the first single bet placed on each race and is for a maximum of £50 per race (country restrictions apply).
Even better, the Bet365 Price Promise means that they offer the best price on every horse in every race televised live on ITV – compared to the other major bookmakers.
This is an addition to their Best Odds Guaranteed offer on every race, every day – if you place a bet with Bet365 and the SP is bigger, they’ll pay you at the bigger odds.
Feature Race 4/1 Risk Free Bet
They have also rolled this offer out to two races every day that there is no ITV racing (country restrictions apply).
Sky Dogs 2/1 Risk Free Bet
This is the equivalent for live greyhound racing on Sky Sports, giving customers a risk free bet on the next live race if they back a winner at odds of 2/1 or more.
Once again, the risk free bet is the same value as the initial stake, but with a maximum of £100 per race and £500 per day (country restrictions apply).

No review of Bet365 would be complete without mention of their industry-leading live streaming service.
Over 60,000 Events a Year
That’s over 150 events streamed a day on average, far more than any other bookmaker. These include football and tennis matches from around the world, as well as snooker, darts, basketball, table tennis, basketball and ice-hockey and even some more obscure sports such as beach football and futsal.
Quite simply, whenever you want to have a bet – or even just watch live sport – Bet365 will have something to keep you entertained, night or day.
How to Watch
To view, log-in to your Bet365 account, select ‘Live Streaming’ on the top menu and choose the event you wish to view – the pictures will display above their latest In-Play markets and each event will begin streaming 2 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
Live Streaming is free of charge at Bet365, but you must either have a funded sports account or have placed a bet within the last 24 hours in order to watch.
You can also watch every horse race in the UK and Ireland at Bet365 with streams from Racing UK and AtTheRaces – with no subscription fee. But for these you must have placed a bet of at least 50p (or currency equivalent).
They also stream racing from over 400 South African meetings each year – to watch these, simply click on the Live Stream link at the top of the race card.
You can also view their live streaming service on your iPhone, iPad or Android device, so you’ll never need to miss a race again.
Bet365 allow you to cash out of your bets early – to either lock-in an early profit, or take a reduced loss on your initial stake if you don’t like the way your bet looks.
The cash out amount offered will be dependent upon how the selection(s) are performing at that time and could be of a higher or lower value than your original stake – you can even use their slider to cash-out just part of the bet.
Bet365 offer cash out on selected pre-match and in-play markets on both single and multiple bets for a variety of sports including football, tennis, horse-racing, cricket and basketball.
Bets that are eligible will display the amount being offered for you to cash out in the ‘My Bets’ section of your bet slip – should you decide to take this money all you need to do is click the ‘Cash Out’ button located beneath your selections.
Along with their live horse racing coverage from Racing UK and AtTheRaces, Bet365 offer a free racing archive service for all UK and Irish horse racing, meaning you can now watch unlimited replays from all racecourses.
The archive is simple to use and lets you search either by date or horse name – simply log-in to your Bet365 account and you can find the Racing Archive under ‘Results & Archive’ by clicking on ‘Services’ in the main menu and then ‘Live Streaming’ or ‘Mobile & Tablet’.
Originally a betting shop business, Bet365 sold its chain of shops to Coral in 2005 and is now the leading online bookmaker in the UK, although their customer base of towards 21 million extends across the world.
These volumes allow Bet365 to be extremely competitive in their odds, working on the basis of high turnover and small margins – especially for football where they focus their marketing activity.
Indeed, most people will be familiar with their TV adverts featuring Ray Winstone, which usually show around live TV football to promote their in-running markets.
They are also a major sponsor of horse racing, including the Bet365 Gold Cup (formerly the Whitbread Gold Cup) at Sandown in April, the Bet365 Lennox Stakes at Glorious Goodwood (late July/early Aug), the Bet365 Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby (late Oct/early Nov) and the Bet365 Hennessy Festival at Newbury (Nov).
Still a privately operated business owned by the Coates family, the firm also owns local Premier League football club, Stoke City – they are the club shirt sponsors and Bet365 chairman Peter Coates is also chairman of the football club.
At the 2015 industry eGaming Review Awards, Bet365 was named ‘Sports Betting Operator of the Year’ for the third year in succession.
