Bet365 Review

Is Bet365 Australia good to bet with?

Bet365 Australia is a subsidiary of Bet365 Group which is an online gambling company based in the United Kingdom. They have over 35 million customers worldwide with 4,300 employees. Bet365 is a private company which is owned by the Coates family.

Globally, they operate a bookmaker, online casino, poker, and bingo. In Australia, they only provide their bookmaker service. For sports betting, you can select from over 30 sports to bet on. Each game has multiple betting markets for each event, which ensures that Bet365 offers the most comprehensive range of betting markets in Australia. We spent some time betting with them and have put together some highlights from our experience.

Bet365 Highlights

Considering the size of the business globally, we thought that the Australian offering would be competitive when compared to the other Australian bookmakers. They do provide customers with an impressive betting experience but with limited weekly sports and racing betting promotions. Below are the highlights of betting with Bet365 Australia we thought worth mentioning.

Live Streaming – Enjoy live streaming with Bet365 website and mobile app. To stream, you will need to be a customer who has funded your account and placed a bet within 24 hours the event you want to stream. You can stream both sports and racing events in Australia plus International events.

Soccer Bet Builder – Create a pre-match bet you want on any soccer match. This is similar to the same game multi bet which other bookmakers also offer. You can also link two Soccer Bet Builder bets together to create a Bet Builder Double. You can then also add selection(s) from other Soccer matches or any other sport to combine into one multiple bet.

Racing Odds – If you bet on racing then the Bet365 racing odds products and promotions are worth your consideration. The Odds Drift Protector products was our favourite. If the price at the jump is blogger than the price that you took, Bet365 will pay you out at the biggest odds. The prices offered for most metropolitan horse racing meetings are very competitive compared to other bookmakers.

Form Guide and Statistics – Gain access to their form and statistical analysis tools. You can research soccer, USA sports, Australian sports, plus horse racing here and overseas. The content available for each sport and racing event is also enhanced with in-depth betting previews via the Bet365 blog.

Bet365 App

Bet365 App
Bet365 Australia mobile app

During our testing of the Bet365 app, we turned off WiFI and to use mobile data only. We tested both the Android and Apple versions of the app and found it works well for both. The speed of which the app operates is on par with the top bookmaker apps, but it does lack some of the additional features you get with others. Below are the key points worth mentioning about the app.

Android App – If you own an Android phone or tablet, you will have access to the Bet365 android app. We found it worked well with our Google Pixel 3 and the speed and loading time of pages were quick.

Apple App – During our testing of the Apple version of the Bet365 app, it performed well using only mobile data. The sports streaming worked seamlessly, and we could get a bet on quickly.

Live Streaming – To access the sports streaming, you will need to deposit funds into your account and placed a bet within the previous 24 hours.
