I wasn’t in with Bet365 until I stumbled on its variety of market sports. But I had to check other essential factors like offers and promotions, mobile app and user experience, and a selection of banking methods. Wonder what I found out? There isn't much complain here except the bonuses and promotions section, which I find a little limited.
However, seeing a whole range of sports markets in addition to the niceties mentioned above left me with no doubt that Bet365 goes the extra mile to offer something unique. In this article, I chose to only focus on the bookie's betting markets.
Before delving into the nitty-gritty of Bet365’s markets, here are a few other things that make the bookie emerge the top hands down:
- Industry-leading website and mobile app features
- Seamless navigation on both the online platform and the native mobile app
- A clear terms and conditions section with attainable rollover requirements and reasonable restrictions
- Industry-standard security measures
- Competitive odds
Sports Markets and Betting Options
The bookie not only offers an extensive range of sports, but they also provide a hugely impressive variety of betting options. The depth of various market fixtures is just mind-blowing. You'll find a stunning coverage of leagues that aren't provided by other betting sites. Types of sports that this popular bookmaker offers extend to a handsome 40+. These include football (my all-time favorite), Horse racing, Baseball, Basketball, American Football, Tennis, Hockey, Gaelic Sports, Rugby, Ice Hockey, Cycling, Boxing, Motorsport, Darts, Bowls, Greyhound racing, eSports, and virtual sports among others.
American football fans will be thrilled by the exclusive NBA, NHL, and NFL market coverage. What I can’t commend enough is the depth of these markets and football in particular. Scottish and English leagues are represented to the very core of regional conference divisions. The bookmaker also serves fixtures from major European countries and the rest of the world. You'll hardly find many of such fixtures on other betting sites. If you enjoy live streaming (it's all I do with the slightest opportunity available), Bet365 offers loads of that. You can watch live leagues to the furthest end of Kuwait, Azerbaijan, and Thailand.
Wide Selection of Betting Options
Betting options are offered in a range that closely matches the broad market coverage. All sorts of bet types are available. I have identified a list of some useful betting types here:
- Golden boot winner
- Both teams to score
- Darts- checkout scores, Most 180s
- Asian Goal Line
- Asian Handicap
- Ante-post – Qualifiers, Top Scorers, Tournament Winners, Worst Players
- Player Performance (yards run, shots & misses), American Money Line Markets
- Horse and Greyhound Racing
In-play betting takes action a notch higher. Bet365 is a self-proclaimed king of the coveted in-play betting. I am not about to steal their shine in their rich selection of betting options on offer. The in-play function is tied to almost every event that the site features. More prominent fixtures involve a range of bets which are exclusive to in-play betting. These take the excitement to the next level. Options like who gets the next red or yellow card, the method that achieves the next goal and the next penalty are stimulating additions that you won't find anywhere else.
There is also an option for bettors to view odds as decimal, fractional, and American, which makes it easier to calculate returns when placing bets. This added to multiple currency options, various support languages, and the betting market diversity achieves the inclusive agenda of this bookie.
In-play Bets and Live Streams
Bet365 offers you a chance with over 140,000 live events streamed from your desktop or mobile device. Highlights include top leagues and tournaments from all over the globe. The minimum requirement to access the live streaming function is logging in and having a funded account. However, it is worth noting that there is a Geo-location restriction to live streaming capability. You are also required to have placed a bet or have a funded sports account within the last 24 hours before accessing the feature.
To use the Live Streaming service you will need to be logged in and have a funded account or to have placed a bet in the last 24 hours.
Multiple betting options are provided to accommodate the comprehensive market coverage and extensive betting choices. You can combine up to 14 selections and bet. 14 isn't a significant number when compared to what other operators offer. However, with the inclusion of other multiple betting options like super Yankee, permed Yankee, permed patent, Heinz, block, super goliath, lucky 31s, and alphabet, it comes to a rather generous serving of variety. With these options, you'll combine different variations of selections instead of merely having odds of each selection.
To access the multiple bet options which are open to use, head out to the bet slip location, and hit the Multiple Bet tab. A drop-down menu displaying all the options available will come into view. You will then enter your stake.
I was however disappointed when I realized that they do not include a display of returns on multiple bets in the bet slip. It's easy to work out returns from single bets, but it's something else when I have a whole block of bets with high odds.
Conclusion: 35 Days of Seamless Betting, Years on End
Betting markets and betting options is one area that Bet365 has outdone its chief rivals. The broad market coverage balanced with numerous betting options comes first to many punters out there. The events available for live streaming are more than those you'll find at most betting sites. Mobile and online platforms feature innovative designs and, ultimately, one of the most functional betting interfaces. Placing bets is smooth and straightforward, thanks to the compact layout both online and on the mobile app. A comprehensive help section handles a range of possible concerns. These, plus competitive odds, generous offers, and responsive customer support, cement the bookmaker's place among the must-go-to betting platforms worldwide.
