Let’s take a deeper look at the most common types of wagers offered by Bet365 UK

  • Winners 1X2 – Straight up betting is simply wagering on the winner of a particular sporting event.
  • Futures – Future betting is always the first choice but it is also the riskiest since it is usually done at the beginning of the season with very little data to go on.
  • Accumulators – Accas are popular since they combine many different scenarios for a win to happen, they offer the opportunity of a small investment with huge payoffs for the bettor which is why they are well-liked.
  • Props betting – props betting allows one to bet on random events, things that cannot be planned for or for performance-based wagers on individual players.
  • In-Game live bets – These are wagers on the outcomes that happen before a game is officially over, for example, the winner at half time or the points total at half time and such.
  • Bet Builder – Bet bulders have become common recently with many bookmakers offering them as their popularities have increased. In this instance, a player is given some options and they are allowed to combine thee options any way they like, essentially creating a unique combo and building their own bet. You can pick from a number of its markets and they are added to your Bet Builder, where bet365 will then calculate the odds.
  • Cashouts and Partial Cashouts – This bookmaker and a few others will allow a player to cash out and collect some of their winnings before the said event wagered on is over, a partial cashout allows for part of the winnings to be withdrawn from the bet before the match ends and the bet is not voided.

The Bad – On the review aggregator site Trust Pilot this site has an average of 1.5 stars which is bad but a perusal of most of the complaints as seen below are about problems that could be handled better via customer service, we have curated a few below.

Trust Pilot

Bet 365 will only let me bet – Bet 365 will only let me bet. 40 can they do this when I ask why they won’t give me any reason

I was lured to this site by offering a bonus. Did very well on bonus money. So I made a deposit and played t he same slot. My 100.00 went in 5 minutes. Betting only one dollar. Won’t be coming back anytime soon.

good betting site but i must always waiting for my money, withdraw is long

Played on a few sites on slots this is the worst site I have come across for rewards free stuff loyalty bonus money back on losses ECT STAY well clear.

i have played on many poker sites but in my opinion this one is rigged and needs investigating you could have a hand more or less guarenteed to win but you know it wont win so what is the point of bothering .people warned me about this site but when i first played it seemed fair and thats not because i was winning because i wasnt it just seems to have changed for the worst.i dont know if certain players are bots or not all i want is a fair game of poker with a fair chance of winning .no more playing on bet 365 for me and i will avoid it in future

I used Bet365 daily for the last 5 years. I liked the cashout option, but sometimes it could take 30 minutes to reflect on your account. Last night I had my $1160 bet give me a $2000 cashout option. I tapped cash out, then confirm… but it didn’t reflect my account. So awaited 30 minutes like before & nothing. I called customer service & they said that my cash out option must have been removed… This was not my 1st win, so I was very upset that they would belittle me as though I don’t know what I was doing. No wonder their revenue is over $2 billion…

I am very happy with Bet365, I’ve been with them 3 years, the site design is the best in UK, I can instantly withdraw to their cash card, they answer questions quickly in chat and even operate in my home country in eastern Europe. I wish they had higher odds though.

Some of the Greatest Cheater, Worst Customer Support Member are Sitting over their. You will Just keep Sending you automated Messages. Will not try to Solve the Issues you are Having. And By the time you are mad and Screaming to yourself.
It takes them 5-10 Minutes to Reply to one message.
Just Avoid this Site, Just Avoid it, Those Customer Support Member will not Solve your issue, create more issue for you.
And You don’t even have the option to report to someone else about it.

As soon as you win a lot of money from them you get limited. Scammers!

I Would give 5 stars, because they were cooperative, and helpful, but i have to give 4 because they limited my account because of my winnings, but atleast I got my withdraw without problem, so its okay

Summary

While Bet365 is not available in the Kenyan market, one can still create an account using a VPN and deposit using dollars or pounds with Paypal.

As with any bookmaker, one has to evaluate them on an individual basis and then decide for themselves if it is worth the effort. So we would recommend that you try this bookmaker out first before proceeding. I hope we have given you a glimpse of their inner workings.
