Bet365 offers the most sporting events on the market, from American Football to Water Polo and every sport you can think of in between. For the Irish gamblers, there’s football, horse racing, GAA, rugby, greyhounds and more. Pick and choose from thousands of games and leagues or simply an upcoming event for that type of sport. From the column on the left, you’ll find the list of sports from A-Z if you’re on the Sports section at the top of the page.
The Sports section is where Bet365 thrives, as they offer live streaming for many sports with football, horse racing and basketball to name a few. Most games are available to watch through the in-play section at the top of the page, but to watch a livestream, you must have placed a bet in the last 24 hours. Even if the game isn’t available to watch on a livestream, they will have the game available to allow you to see what is happening during along with stats of whichever game you choose.
If Casinos are your thing, they offer a Casino and Live Casino section along the top of the page, which has blackjack, roulette, card games, slots and more. Live Casino will take you into a livestream of whichever game you choose as if you were at the Casino itself.
Along with that, they offer Bingo and then there’s an Extra section at the top next to that.
The Extra section will take you to promotions, and in there you’ll find many promotions that the website is offering for select sports. Usually the sports they select promotions for involve football, horse racing, greyhounds, and Australian racing. The promotions can change depending on the date and time, so reading T&C is crucial.
For football, they currently offer a great promotion where if your team is leading 2-0, your bet will be paid out as a win, even if said team doesn’t go on and win the match. The markets they offer for football are also a lot more than any other website, while even in-play they will keep markets such as a player to be carded up, which is hard to find elsewhere.
When you enter a section such as Casino or Games, there will also be a section on each page that is Offers which will have their own promotional offers.
On the in-play tab, you will find all of the sports matches that are currently taking place all over the world. In each one there will be a certain amount of markets available. The more known the league or game is, the more markets that are likely to be available especially in-play. There’s even some games that markets only become available when the game or match begins.
It’s possible to cash out of the bet you’ve placed, whether it be before or during. If you feel you’ve made a mistake, the website will allow you to take back your stake in full so long as what you’ve placed a bet on hasn’t started yet. When your bet starts, there are cash out options available for the entirety and the amount you can cash out for will depend on how well your bet is doing. For example: If the team you bet on to win is winning 1-0, but it looks as though the other team may score, you can take the cash out option (which will be available on My Bets section, typically on the right hand side) for less money than what your winnings would be. The less the time is in the game, the less money you’ll get back. Your cash up will continue to go up in value the longer your team is winning.
The app is available on both iOS and Android, and using it on a mobile phone or tablet is no problem. Similar to the actual website, the app is easy to use and offers all the same sections, along with A-Z of sports. Live streaming of games or races can also be found on the app.
They offer 24/7 service through a live chat where any issue will be swiftly taken care of as you are likely to be connected to a person fairly quickly. There’s also an FAQ section where you may find what it is you’re looking for.
At the bottom of the website on a desktop, you will find sections of Help, Form & Stats, Settings, Scores & Results Promotions, and Audio. In each section you can find a Horse’s form, a live result or simply listen to a game that you may have placed a bet on.
