When it comes to football betting, few brands rival the size, success and prestige of Bet365. In less than two decades since being founded, Bet365 have grown to become undoubtedly one of the top dogs in the entire industry.
Although they were founded in the UK, bet365 have grown to become a truly international brand. Their customers – of which there are apparently over 22 million – hail from over 200 countries around the world. Despite this, they have made efforts to stay true to their roots. They have retained a definite British pedigree, being the single biggest employer in all of Stoke-on-Trent, and proudly refer to themselves as a ‘family-run business’.
bet365 Football Betting Sign Up Offer
When you join Bet365, you’re entitled to claim their 100% Deposit Bonus. In short, this means that whatever your original deposit is (between £10 and £200), they’ll match it completely. If you make an initial deposit of £100, you’ll be given an extra £100.
Here are the main Ts and Cs for the Bet365 Deposit Bonus:
- You must spend all of your initial deposit before receiving the bonus amount
- This one is very important! Before making a withdrawal, you must turn over your deposit plus your bonus, three times over. So if you made an initial deposit of £100, and received a bonus of £100, you’ll then need to place wagers equaling £600 before you can make a withdrawal
- If you don’t turn over that amount within 90 days of signing up, the Deposit Bonus you received is void
- In order for a bet to qualify towards the turnover, it must have odds of 1/2 or greater
- If you bet multiple times on one market (a Real Madrid vs. Barcelona match, for example), only the first bet counts towards your turnover
- Bets that are cashed out during play do not count towards the turnover
To be brutally honest, this is a pretty poor signup offer, especially compared to some of the other brands we’ve looked at. Just because you’re a big brand, and have plenty of customers already, doesn’t mean you should offer a sub-standard welcome offer. Plenty of other big brands offer far more competitive deals. Betway, for example, also offer a bonus that matches your first deposit, but with far more forgiving Ts & Cs. There are plenty of reasons to join Bet365, but their signup offer is nowhere near the top of the list.
The good thing about it – apart from the sheer amount of ‘free’ money on offer – is that the odds of your bets only need to be at least 1/2. This gives you a good chance to win a few safe bets on your way to claiming your bonus, and – eventually – withdrawing it.
bet365 Ongoing Football Promotions (Updated on: November 2021)
Fortunately, after a pretty poor signup deal, Bet365’s offering does get better with their ongoing promotions.

The Bet365 cash out feature is available on selected markets, with both partial and full options being on offer to punters. Placing customers in greater control of their bets, cash out is available both pre-match and in-play single, accumulator and multiple bets, with Bet365 football, tennis, horse racing, cricket and basketball markets qualifying, among others. However, cashed out bets will not count towards the release of any bonus funds at Bet365. Meanwhile, auto cash out is also available at Bet365, where customers can guarantee that bets will be cashed out once winnings reach a certain amount.

However, it is Bet365 live football streaming that attracts the majority of punters, with matches from leagues around the world being available to watch on desktop and mobile.

There’s no drop-off in terms of usability, either. When using the mobile app, you have access to all your favourite features, including in-play betting and Cash Out. You even have access to live streams when you’re on the move; a feature that few other brands offer, even on their main websites. That’s seriously impressive.
In our testing of the app it ran quickly and extremely smoothly, with no crashes or other issues. A quick glance at Apple’s App Store reveals that most users have enjoyed a similarly reliable experience, with the app receiving an average rating of four stars.
Compared to its big rivals – particularly Ladbrokes, with their reliability issues – Bet365 betting app is very much at the front of the pack. This is true in terms of reliability, and innovation. Out of all the big football betting brands, we’re comfortable in saying this feature-packed betting app is the best we’ve tested.

bet365 Company Details
As a brand, Bet365 certainly has a humble origin story. The company was actually formed in a shed in Stoke-on-Trent, back in 2000. In the years since then, it has come a hell of a long way.
One of the keys to Bet365’s success has undoubtedly been their commitment to staying at the cutting edge of the industry. They saw the direction in which betting was moving early, selling off all of their high street stores back in 2005 to focus solely on online gambling. Needless to say, it was the right decision. They’ve since grown into a behemoth of online betting, turning over a healthy £1.55billion in 2015.
❔What is the minimum bet on bet365?
The minimum bet accepted by bet365 is £0.10 and that rate applies to singles, multiples, accumulators, and all different types of bets. The £0.10 minimum bet applies to all sports wagers. If you try to stake less than the £0.10 your bet won’t be accepted, and you will be advised to increase your stake to match the minimum bet allowed before the transaction can be confirmed.

❔What is bet365 bet builder feature and how can I use it?
The bet365 bet builder feature may be a relatively new addition to the site and app but it has already proven to be extremely popular with members, especially football bettors. The bet365 bet builder allows you to place multiple bets on the same game. For example, this could be a live football match, but many other sports are covered. With bet builder you can add different markets from the one fixture to a bet and it works in the style of an accumulator, with all selections needing to be correct for the bet to be settled as a winner. Some of the markets you can add to a bet365 bet builder bet include match winner, first goal scorer, correct score, total goals, and handicap.
❔What is Edit bet feature and how can I use it?
The edit bet feature is another option available to bet365 customers that is popular with members who enjoy betting on sports. The clue to explaining this bet is in the name – edit bet. You can edit your bet at any point while it’s live, adding bets and removing bets. To do this you should visit your live bet slip on the bet365 site and click the edit bet box located at the top of the page. You will then have the option to add bets or withdraw bets. If you have a football accumulator, for example, you can cut off the selections that aren’t going to plan and keep the winning picks. Please keep in mind your potential winnings will be adjusted as a result with prices changed to the current in-play betting odds available on each pick.
❔What is the maximum withdrawal amount from bet365?
The maximum you can withdraw from your bet365 on any one day differs depending on your chosen payment method. For example, if you have chosen to withdraw to a PayPal account the most you can receive in a day is £5500. If you wish to withdraw your winnings to a debit card, however, the maximum increases to £20,000. Cheques can also be sent to you and these are capped at £50,000 per day. It’s worth reading the terms and conditions attached to each payment method before deciding on the one that best suits your needs.
bet365 Online Betting Summary
Let’s get the bad stuff out of the way first. Bet365’s signup deal is disappointing. The amount on offer is impressive, but the stringent terms that are attached make it significantly less appealing.
If you can look past that, however, there’s a huge amount to like about the Bet365 betting experience. As the biggest name in British online football betting, you’re definitely in a safe pair of hands; Bet365 have a strong commitment to customer satisfaction, and this is visible across all of their services. They offer excellent variety in terms of ways to bet, their ongoing promotions are extremely good, and their mobile app must be recognized as one of, if not the best on offer right now.
