Even though I’ve already written a review on Bet365 I liked the guys so much that I decided to devote a whole page to them. I may have mentioned before how I’ve always wanted to place a bet on my favourite sport. How the urge would usually come to me during the Melbourne Cup. The problem was I was always too busy to go to the TAB. I did try to place a bet by phone but that was just a pain in the ass. They wanted too many details and even then I couldn’t make a bet on that day. I figured what was the point of that. I wanted to place a bet then and there. I only ever tried that once and they may have changed things since then.
It wasn’t until years later that I discovered online sports betting. How stupid was I, especially considering I have a online lottery site. But which online sports betting site should I join? Naturally I didn’t want to join just any online sports betting site. I wanted to make sure I joined a legitimate online bookmaker! One that offered a secure and safe way to place my sports bets online.
I did a lot of research and decided on Bet365. Bet365 filled all my requirements for a legitimate online sports betting site. Let me list just a few of the most important points that swung me over as a Bet365 member
What Makes Bet365 A Good Online Betting Site
Bet365 is a United Kingdom company that has been operating since 2000!
Being an Aussie the fact that in Australia Bet365 is regulated and licensed by the Northern Territory Government, and employs over one hundred staff in Darwin.
Bet365 has an app for my smartphone. This was important for me because I wanted to be able to access the site easily no matter where I am.
Bet365’s online site is easy to navigate. Unlike a lot of other sites it’s actually Flash driven instead of the usual HTML.
Bet365 accepted many forms of payment, including Skrill,NETELLER and even PayPal! Yep, you can place a bet on your favourite sports using PayPal. That is of course unless you’re an American. Unfortunately their government prevents them from doing that.
Wikipedia had a fair bit on Bet365 including some of the awards they’ve won.
“At the eGaming Review Operator Awards 2010 organised by eGaming Review magazine, Bet365 won the “Operator of the Year” award. Bet365 ranked third in The Sunday Times Profit Track 100 league table, which ranks private companies in the UK based on profit growth rate. In addition, Bet365 was ranked as one of the fastest growing privately owned technology, media and telecoms companies in The Sunday TimesTech Track 100 league table.
eGaming Review magazine has ranked Bet365 the number one Internet gaming company in 2010, 2011 and 2012 as part of its annual Power 50 list of the top 50 most influential Internet gaming companies.”
They offered a 100% bonus for new members on their first deposit up to $200. I deposited $100, received and email with a code which I applied using my app getting another $100 in my account. This gives me $200 for placing bets. Unfortunately, due to new Government regulations this offer no longer applies to certain states in Australia!
I also liked the fact that they are committed to responsible gambling including a link to www.gamblinghelponline.org.au in the email. They also offered me the option to limit the deposits I can make from as little as $20 per week. A great way to budget your sports betting.
I like buying my lottery tickets online because it allows me to partake in lotteries all over the world. I wanted the same from my online sports betting agency. Bet365 does just that. As a member I have access to almost all of the worlds sports from American football to darts.
When I joined I deposited a hundred dollars and they matched my deposit. I should have deposited the maximum $200 because then I would have a $400 sports betting account instead of a $200 one.
Here is just some of the stuff they have to offer
New Account Offer
100% Euro Soccer Offer
Bore Draw Money Back Offer
