  2. Make a qualifying deposit of £5* or more to qualify for a 100% matched amount in Bet Credits up to £100*. Your qualifying deposit is your largest deposit (capped at £100*) made in the 7 days prior to you claiming the offer. Deposits made using NETeller, PayPal, paysafecard, Skrill, Skrill 1-Tap or ‘by Skrill’ payment methods, where available, will not count as your qualifying deposit unless you have completed Know Your Customer procedures (KYC) and entered a Postal Verification Code (PVC) or we have successfully verified two accepted forms of your Identity Documents. Please note, following a period of not less than 30 days from 7th March 2019, these verification requirements will apply both to your qualifying deposit and any subsequent withdrawal of returns from Bet Credits stakes using these payment methods.
    For more details on accepted Identity Documents, how to complete KYC, or to upload your Identity Documents, simply log in to your account, go to Members then My Account and select Know Your Customer.
  3. You must claim your offer within 30 days of registering your account.
  4. The maximum amount of Bet Credits that can be claimed is £100*. For example, a qualifying deposit of £150 will qualify for £100 of Bet Credits.

Releasing your Bet Credits

  1. Your Bet Credits will be held in your account balance and are non-withdrawable. To release your Bet Credits you must place qualifying bets with a total stake value equal to or greater than the value of your qualifying deposit (capped at £100*) and they must settle within 30 days of claiming the offer.
  2. Your Bet Credits will normally be available to use within one hour of the qualifying settled bet requirement being met.
  3. You may have more than one Bet Credits offer available on your account at any one time. However, qualifying settled bets will only count towards releasing one of the offers. You may choose which offer is active within the Members section.
  4. Bets placed using our Telephone Betting service will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits.
  5. Any single bets placed at odds of less than 1/5 (1.20) will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits. In multiple bets at least one selection must have odds of 1/5 (1.20) or greater to count.
  6. In market/fixture combinations that only have two or three potential outcomes (for example Soccer Full Time Result), where you have placed bets on more than one potential outcome, either pre-match or In-Play, only the outcome with your highest cumulative stake will count towards the settled bets requirement (if you have placed the same highest cumulative stake on more than one selection in the same market/fixture combination then only one will count towards the settled bets requirement). Any bets settled on other selections in the same market/fixture combination will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits. This term is applied in conjunction with the other restrictions. For example, if you have a £10 bet on Man Utd to beat Chelsea and a £15 bet on Chelsea to beat Man Utd on the Full Time Result market at odds of 1/5 (1.20) or greater, only the stake on Chelsea will count towards the release of your Bet Credits (if both bets were for £10 then £10 would count towards the release of your Bet Credits). If you were to place a further £10 bet on Man Utd to beat Chelsea at odds of 1/5 (1.20) or greater, this cumulative £20 stake will count towards the release of your Bet Credits and not the £15 stake on Chelsea.
  7. Fully Cashed Out, Instant Games, Gaming and void bets do not count towards the release of your Bet Credits. Where a stake has been partially Cashed Out, only the remaining active stake will count towards the release of your Bet Credits. Where a bet has been edited using our Edit Bet feature, the original stake will not count towards the release of your Bet Credits and only the new stake on the new bet will count. Please note, following a period of not less than 30 days from 7th March 2019, In-Play bets which are settled as a push will also not count towards the release of your Bet Credits.
  8. If you do not have qualifying settled bets to the value of your qualifying deposit (capped at £100*) within 30 days of claiming the offer, your Bet Credits will be forfeit and removed and the offer will be closed.

Using Bet Credits

  1. Your Bet Credits are non-withdrawable. Any returns from Bet Credits stakes will be added to your Withdrawable Balance but Bet Credits stakes are not included in any returns. For example, a £10 bet placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) would give a return of £30 (£20 winnings plus £10 stake), whereas a £10 Bet Credits stake placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) would give a net return of £20, as the £10 Bet Credits stake is not returned.
  2. Stakes can be funded in part by your Bet Credits and part with your Withdrawable Balance; however the Bet Credits element of the stake will not be included in any returns. For example, a £10 bet placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) which was funded by £5 Bet Credits and £5 cash would give a net return of £25 (£20 winnings plus £5 cash stake) as the £5 Bet Credits stake would not be returned. If a bet is void and has had an opportunity to win (for example, in the event of a push), Bet Credits stakes will not be returned. If a bet is void and has not had an opportunity to win (for example, when a Goalscorer bet is placed on a player who does not then take part in the match), Bet Credits stakes will be returned.
  3. For the purpose of Cash Out, the value displayed will already have the Bet Credits stake removed and will be the actual return received if Cashed Out.
  4. Your Bet Credits cannot be:
    • transferred to Casino, Games, Poker, Vegas or Bingo;

    • used as stakes on Tote (including other pool betting) and Lotto markets;

    • used as stakes on Bankers, If Bets, Reverse If Bets, Teasers or bets placed using our Telephone Betting service.

  5. Your Bet Credits will be forfeit and removed if your account is inactive for 90 consecutive days. Making a deposit, placing a Sports bet or participation in any Casino, Poker, Games, Vegas or Bingo product is deemed as having activity on an account.
  6. Bet Credits can be used as a qualifying bet for the following offers:
    • ITV Racing 4/1

    • Feature Race 4/1

    • Bore Draw Money Back

  7. Bets placed using Bet Credits will not qualify for the following bonuses:

Bonus, Offers & Promo Codes

Members benefit from in play offers and deposit deals, like the £50 football bonus when you wager before and during a selected match. Or there’s the Channel 4/1 offer… bet on any televised channel 4 race and if you win at odds of 4/1 or greater you receive a free bet on the next race to the amount of your last winning bet. They don’t have as many regular deals as some of the competing bookmakers in the business, but that in itself could be a selling point as you’re not bombarded with daily deals and promotions.

ITV Racing 4/1 Offer

Back any single winner at 4/1 or more on any race televised live on ITV Racing and you can have a risk free bet to the same stake (up to £50*) on the next race broadcast live on ITV Racing. This offer applies to the FIRST single bet placed by a customer on each race shown live on ITV Racing.

If your risk free bet also wins at odds of 4/1 or more, you qualify for a risk free bet on the next race televised live on ITV Racing. Keep backing those winners and bet365 will keep giving you risk free bets! If your risk free bet loses, your stake (up to £50*) will be refunded to your account.

*or currency equivalent – T&Cs apply.

This offer will not apply where a stake has been fully Cashed Out. Where a stake has been partially Cashed Out, any refund amount or subsequent risk free bet amount will be equal to the remaining active stake. If a qualifying bet is edited using the Edit Bet feature, any refund amount will be equal to the new stake and not the original stake.

Where a risk free bet is changed using Edit Bet, no refund will be given and the offer will no longer apply. Where more than one selection in the same race is placed on the same bet slip, the first selection is deemed to be the one which is highest on the bet slip. Bets must be paid for and placed in the usual way. Ante-Post bets, Enhanced Win bets, Cover Bets, Tote/Pari-Mutuel (bets and dividends) and ‘Not to Win’ bets are not applicable for this offer.

More terms & conditions may apply, see bet365 for further details

Inplay & Cashout

The in play betting system is one of the best in the market, with a host of markets open during live play that other providers don’t provide. Next scorer markets, eventual totals etc.The in play system is also matched with an equally innovative cash out system, that allows you to segment your cashouts with a slider. Allowing you to withdraw all or a percentage of any available cash-out amounts.

The Website

The system still uses a flash based desktop protocol which isn’t the most widely supported software in the industry. But they take a firm stance on making their website functional for users rather than trying to please search engines and devices. They have the technology to change the delivery of the sports book as and when users login from different devices.

Mobile & App

Their mobile site is a diluted version of their desktop site, offering the very basic information required to select a bet, deposit, bank and play. In my opinion it lacks detail, which is hard to present on mobile and I personally prefer to have some information available when betting…. like the horse racing write ups provided on their desktop version. Whilst I use bet365 quite often i try and avoid using their mobile version unless i’m doing something simple like withdrawing or a quick cashout.

Customer Service

Bet365 offer a good standard of customer service! They don’t extra mile like some other brands who payout on close calls or controversial incidences and they’re members offers are pretty basic. They do give out the odd free bet here and there. It doesn’t appear to have a pattern and you will need to play through the amount 3 times until you can withdraw, but otherwise its a decent gesture. Although I am pretty sure it monitors when you haven’t deposited for a while and is used to get you back on the site betting again.

They do however come across as a very customer facing brand and are not shy of offering their customers relevant support channels, as you can see from all the publicly accessible contact numbers and email addresses.
