What deposit options do you have?

The main advantage of legal, safe online betting sites is that you can use a lot of options you couldn’t when playing on one of the overseas sites before legalization. These include credit cards, bank transfers, Paypal, and even cash.

Here are the main categories:

  • Paypal: This one is great for those of you who were playing overseas before betting was legalized. You will now be able to use your Paypal account, which is super easy and quick. This is the best option as far as we are concerned.
  • ACH: This will be the best way to get withdrawals. So if you set this up for your deposits, it will make it seamless when you hit it big and want to take some money out.
  • Debit or Credit Cards: They are accepting Visa and Mastercard for now. We would think they might eventually add the other two major cards, but they do not accept them at this time.
  • Other: They will also take online bank transfers, PayNearMe, the PaySafe card, cash, and Skrill. You can go to the Hard Rock Atlantic City Casino and put money into your account.
  • Bank Transfer
  • VISA
  • MasterCard
  • PayPal
  • PayNearMe
  • Paysafecard
  • Skrill
  • NETELLER
  • ACH Transfer

There are plenty of withdrawal options for your winnings

Bet365 offers fewer options for when you want to get your money out but still has plenty to choose from. Online banking is the number one option and usually takes between one to five business days.

You can also use PayPal, Visa/MasterCard, and Skrill. The two instant options are a Bet365 MasterCard or going to the Hard Rock Atlantic City Casino and getting your winnings in cash.

How do Bet Credits work at bet365.com? Here is what you need to know.

What are Bet Credits?

Bet Credits are additional funds that are added to your account which you can use to place bets with no risk to your own cash.

How do you claim your Bet Credits?

You have two options:

  1. Select the Claim button when making your deposit
  2. Go to My Offers and claim them within 30 days of registering your account

How can you qualify for Bet Credits?

First, make a qualifying deposit (minimum $10) to claim one of the welcome offers. Then, place bets to the value of that deposit and allow these bets to settle and once settled, your Bet Credits will be available to use.

Note that you need to do this within 30 days of opening your account. And, if you make multiple deposits before claiming, your largest qualifying deposit will count.

How do you pay for bets using Bet Credits?

Select ‘Use Bet Credits’ in the bet slip. You choose when you use them.

Must be 21+ to participate & present in Arizona. Gambling Problem? Call 1-800-NEXT-STEP. Place a $5 qualifying bet and $150 in Bonus Bets will be added to your Bonus Bets balance once your bet is settled. T&Cs, time limits and exclusions apply.

What are the benefits of Bet Credits?

Aside from the bonus, you can use Bet Credits on multiple different sports, bets or markets. Any winnings from Bet Credits are credited as cash and you can withdraw as per the normal rules.

Bet Credits have no fixed expiry date (they will be removed if your account is inactive for 90 consecutive days).

Bet Credits can be used alongside or in conjunction with a cash balance. You can choose them to partly fund a bet. Bets placed with Bet Credits can qualify for their No Score Tie Offer (where the offer is applicable to a bet placed with Bet Credits, bets will be refunded as Bet Credits).

A note on sports, lines & limits

When line shopping, Bet365 is one of the best on the market. Its odds and lines are comparable to Vegas and overseas lines. It also has a huge variety of games to bet on, which will help you find value.

Even the casual bettor will find plenty to choose from, and for the serious bettor who line shops, Bet365 will be a winner most days.

Try the bet365 mobile betting app

Like we stated earlier, Bet365 had its start in Europe, so it was able to work out a lot of its kinks. Just as FanDuel and DraftKings were able to do with their daily apps, Bet365 has a foot up on the competition due to its experience.

This is definitely a top betting app anywhere in the industry. The look and navigation are very user-friendly. Everything is easy to figure out and runs smoothly.

The app offers traditional bets and a lot of information if you are someone who likes to research on the app. The site runs well on a phone or tablet or on any type of device. The mobile app also has a very easy-to-use live-betting section as well.

Live betting and in-play betting

Because of the high-speed society we live in, everyone has to have a live-betting section. The popularity of live betting has skyrocketed, and Bet365 has been able to offer a quality product for those who love in-game betting. This might be one of the areas where Bet365 separates itself from the competition. What it lacks in bonuses and promotions, it makes up for in having one of the best live betting platforms on the market.

It has live betting on numerous sports and keeps it fresh by having a lot to bet on during the game. Its NFL in-game betting is just as expansive as anyone. You will have a hard time finding a football game you can’t play live.

Because it started overseas, its live betting offers some sports that aren’t as popular here in the US. It offers live betting on almost all tennis events, big or small. Football, basketball, tennis, soccer, cricket, golf, you name it, it has in-game betting for it.

Place your first cash bet up to $1,000, and if the bet loses, you will have your wager refunded in Bonus Bets. T&Cs, time limits and exclusions apply. Must be 21+. Gambling problem? Call 1-800-GAMBLER

Are there additional offerings?

Because Bet365 considers itself the world’s best online betting company, it has to back it up. It offers the deepest array of bets, and if you like non-traditional American sports, Bet365 might be the app, or site, for you.

In its live betting area, it offers streaming so you can actually watch the game you are betting on, which in this cord-cutting society is very helpful.

Their customer service is great!

Because of its success internationally, Bet365 offers a 24/7 customer service line. You can e-mail, chat, or call on the phone. Bet365 is prompt on responding to e-mails and easy to work with.

The phone option is nice because a lot of the other sportsbooks do not offer this option. The live chat is available all day. This is an option that not every other provider offers, so again, it’s a plus.

What are the Pros?

Bet365’s experience in the industry is a big plus. The mobile app and website are both very easy to use, and the speed is above average. Because of its success overseas, Bet365’s expansive list of sports we don’t bet on a lot here in the United States is second to none.

Depositing or withdrawing your money is quick and easy to do. It has a lot of options to fit your preferences, and the minimum deposits are very reasonable.

How about the cons?

There are not a lot of bad things to say about Bet365. One area where it struggles against its American counterparts is bonuses and promotions. It has started offering better deposit bonuses, but it still isn’t quite up to par with FanDuel and DraftKings.

In summary

Bet365 is one of the best options on the market. If you are shopping for a huge first deposit bonus or big player-friendly promotions, Bet365 isn’t for you. But, if you are more interested in other qualities (user-friendly, quality pricing on lines, deposits/withdrawals, a lot of sports to bet on), this is one of the best, in our opinion.

Bet Types Available

Users of the bet365 can make the following types of bets:
