bet365 is one of the largest online betting site and certainly one of the most popular for Indian punters. It's regulated by British Gambling Commission. It's purely an online betting site and it doesn't have any brick and mortar shop like rest of high street betting establishments.

If you are from Indian subcontinent then you better read my Bible first before reading the rest of this review.

This is very attractive proposition for new punters. All you need to do is to click on the above link to open account, deposit money and get £200. Well hold your horses it's not so easy to get £200. Read their terms & conditions before depositing money.

Banking

bet365 accepts Debit/Credit card and plenty of other eWallets.

One-wallet system

Unlike most of the betting sites where they have separate wallets for different products such as Poker, Bingo, Casino and games, bet365 have just one wallet which is same across all it's products. It's very convenient for players who don't have to worry about uploading or transferring money from one wallet to another. 

Sports

They have most of sports covered including Cricket, Football and Tennis. 

Cricket @ bet365 

They cover most of the Cricket matches and most of the markets. However they don't offer the widest Cricket markets which is available on other UK betting sites. 

It is one of very few online betting sites which offer Cricket Toss market for almost all domestic and International Cricket matches. Even I bet on Cricket toss market on this site most of the times.

bet365 for India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal and other Asian countries

bet365 is the most popular online betting site in Indian subcontinent and the main reason, specially for India, is that it accepts local currency. Another reason for it's popularity is the fact that it always offers most of the Cricket markets.

Deposit and Withdraw for Indian Punters

Don't use your debit/credit card for deposit and withdrawal. Don't ask me why in open forum. Reason is obvious.

Account Verification, Photo ID & Address proof for Indian Punters

This is always an issue for Indians to verify their identity not only on a betting site but on any other site. This is the curse of 3rd world country we have to live with. 

The safest and simplest option is to use your passport for account verification. If you don't have a passport then get one. If you can't get a passport then forget about betting online.

Driving licence and scores of other ID cards such as PAN card, Adhaar Card etc might not be accepted for identity proof.

For address verification passport will be sufficient if it has your current address, if not then you have to get utility bill (electricity/phone) or bank statement (paper statement).

Live Streaming

bet365 is the best site to watch free live streaming of Football, Tennis, Basketball, Volleyball and other sports. Well it's not all free. If you just want to watch the live streaming then all you need to do is to Click here to create account (and get £200 Deposit Bonus), deposit £10 into account and start watching all live streaming.

Fastest way to see match updates in real time

The only way to get the instant match updates is to be in the stadium itself. If you are not in the stadium then you will get some delay of 1 to 5 seconds. bet365 is one of the fastest online site where you can get faster updates. Whether it's Cricket match score, Tennis match or Football it has one of the fastest updates. I've compared few bookie sites to find out the fastest updates and bet365 tops the list of fastest updates. 

Cashout

They offer cashout on some markets which is very useful for new punters.

bet365 Website Sucks

I'll be brutally honest with you, their website sucks. They use flash which is dead technology. Flash is not user friendly web front end. What I find most annoying is that you can't do a search (CTRL+F) to search of a match or market. You have to scroll through the page and read all page to find what you are looking for. 

That's all folks I hope I've cover everything you wanted to know about bet365. Don't forget to check out bet65 forum where you can find answers to most of your questions. They even don't have a site search feature.

Anyways despite a poor front end they are still one of the top betting site to use.

bet365 Mobile

Their mobile app is way better than website and I like it. If you are on the move and have no access to a desktop PC/laptop then mobile app will come handy which does the same job minus speed of live streaming. Live streaming on mobile phone are slower on mobile phones which is obvious.

Support

bet365 offers support via email, telephone and 24x7 live chat. Live chat is excellent, you can get connected to an adviser within 5 minutes which is great.

Bad Reviews on other sites

I was reading bet365 reviews on other review sites and most of them are negative. Don't get deviated by those comments. Try it by yourself before judging. I never had any issue with bet365 at all. I even didn't have any reason to contact them. Everything works smoothly, money upload and withdrawal never had any issues at all. Some of these naive customers have complained that they suspend market during in-play/live betting. This is a normal practice for all betting sites to suspend market when an event occurs. E.g. a penalty in Football or a wicket in Cricket and so on. Suspension is essential as they need to change the odds after an event. Few of these customers have issue with limitations and account closures. This again is a normal practice on all betting sites. They can close accounts any time or limit your account based on many factors.

Follow these steps to avoid your account being investigated:

  • Verify your account before betting
  • Don't withdraw too frequently
  • Don't do arb betting
  • Diversify your betting sports/market

If you are an expert punter like me who always wins then be assured that your account will be limited not only on bet365 but on all betting sites. You can't do anything about it. You should go on BetfairBetfair (Click here to open account and get £25 FREE).

Under no circumstances a bookie will withhold your money be assured of it. Your money is always safe.
