Open Account Offer
When it comes to bonuses, I found that Bet365 knows what it is doing. Just like any of the other platforms that I signed up with, there is a new player sign up bonus which I availed of when I first signed up. You have to make a deposit, and you can get a match bonus. From what I saw in the rules, you can get a deposit bonus of up to $100 or so. That’s what I did to get my bonus.
There are also some conditions here that you need to fulfil to withdraw the bonus amount. You only have to bet the full amount (that means bonus and initial deposit) 3 times.
While I’m more of a sports bonus type of person, I also try out the casinos of the betting platforms that I sign up with so that I can get the full experience. I took a crack at the casino section of Bet365 and immediately went for the casino bonus. The great thing about Bet365 is that even if you’ve already claimed the sports welcome bonus, you can also claim the casino welcome bonus (and the welcome bonuses of the other sections as well). On a lot of betting platforms, you can only claim either the casino bonus or the sports betting bonus, so this is a plus.
Basically, you have to make an initial deposit and use the bonus code BONUS100. After that, you’ll get the bonus amount that’s worth the same as your initial deposit amount. The rules are the same as with the sports welcome bonus. There’s also a withdrawal requirement here that I took notice. You have to play the initial and promo amount 15 times before you can make a withdrawal.
Games Section New Player Bonus
Now, let’s move to the Games section. In this section, you’ll find some arcade games, slots, and table games. You might be asking what’s the difference between this section and the casino section. Well, I just noticed that the casino section leads straight to the live casino section and the Games section has casino games, which is a little confusing. But anyway, let’s talk more about the bonus it offers.
Just like the other sections, the welcome bonus here is also a matching bonus that matches the initial deposit. This welcome bonus for Games has a wagering requirement of 30 times before you can withdraw.
Poker Welcome Package
Let’s get on to the Poker section. Being a huge poker enthusiast, I was thrilled to know that the poker section has its own welcome package wherein you can get a fixed amount of bonus funds, Poker tournament tickets, and free spins. All you have to do is download the Poker software and register an account. From there, you’ll be able to get your bonus package. What I loved about the poker bonus package is that it’s hassle-free. There are no bonus codes, qualifying rules or whatnot. Just sign up, get your bonus package, and use it.
Vegas Welcome Bonus
Let’s all take a trip to Vegas and check out what they have to offer for the new players who come on board. Now, this one is a little different as compared to the other bonus offers that we’ve been talking. The Vegas section won’t offer you a matching bonus. Instead, they’ll offer you some free spins which you can use in certain games in that section. While I wouldn’t say that it’s as attractive as the bonus offers of the other previously mentioned sections like the sports bonus or the casino bonus, it isn’t bad either. The Vegas section isn’t the highlight of the platform anyway. It’s more like a section that supplements the main ones, so it’s not expected to have an extravagant bonus.
Bingo Welcome Bonus
I’m not really a bingo fan, but I was pretty happy to know that the Bingo section has its own welcome bonus for the new players. The bingo has two offers in the package wherein you can receive a matching bonus, just like the previously mentioned bonuses. Unlike those though, the bingo bonus offers double your initial deposit. Other than that, you’ll also get some free spins that allow you to win more prizes.
Bonuses For Existing Customers
Other than a long list of really cool welcome bonuses for new players, they also have a cool list of bonuses for existing customers, which is why I stayed with them for quite a long time. I did notice that there were a lot of sports betting platforms that have desirable welcome bonuses but don’t have many, if none at all, bonuses for existing customers. I think that drawback can make a platform to lose customers to platforms like Bet365. I love having more bonuses even after I’ve signed up because it makes me feel like the team behind the platform goes out of its way to please its customers.
Anyway, here are some of the top bonuses for existing customers that you can avail of if you’ve already signed up in Bet365.
Euro Soccer Bonus
The first bonus we’ll talk about is the Euro Soccer Bonus. I am a huge soccer fan – and so are my friends. That’s why we were thrilled when we found this special Euro Soccer Bonus. That is an accumulator type of bonus wherein you earn bonuses based on the number of folds you make. To put it simply, the more folds in your bet type, the higher the percentage of your bonus. Take note that this bonus is only for top domestic leagues.
Tennis Accumulator Bonus
Aside from football, there is also an accumulator bonus for tennis matches. That pretty much works the same as the football accumulator bonus (the percentage of awards that you get depends on the number of folds for your bet type). The only difference is that this one is specifically for tennis.
With this parlay bonus, you can get up to more than half of what you would usually receive in a regular US and Canadian league parlay bet. All you have to do is place a pre-game parlay bet on the chosen American football game selections. You will get special awards if your bet is a winning one.
Euro Basketball Bonus
This is also the same as the parlay bonus that we’ve mentioned above. The only difference is that you will be betting on European basketball league games instead of American football. The percentage of your awards will depend on how many folds your bet type will be.
Bore Draw Money Back
The Bore Draw Money Back bonus is a pretty interesting bonus that’s unique to Bet365. It allows you to get your investment back if the game ends in a tie where no team has scored. It’s a cool bonus that keeps you pretty safe when you bet. Of course, this only works if you end up with a game that’ s 0 to 0.
Deposit And Withdrawal Methods
For payment methods, they allow some of the most popular ones such as Visa, Mastercard, Skrill, Entropay, Neteller, Paysafe, Bankwire and Cheques. Personally, I use either my Visa card or Mastercard to deposit and withdraw, so I can’t say much for the other methods. For cards though, I don’t pay any fees other than the fees charged by the credit card company. Also, processing time is really fast. Withdrawals may take a few days though, but it won’t usually take more than a week.
If you’re like me, who had a lot of questions at first, check out the FAQs about Bet365 below.

Now, one of the habits of mine when it comes to signing up on online gambling platforms is that I always look for the company background before signing up. I do this so that I’ll be able to know whether a company is legit or probably a scam.
So what I did is I went to Bet365’s About Us page and checked some of the info on them.
I found out that they were founded in the year 2000, meaning that they have 19 years of experience in the online gambling market, which is pretty impressive. About their security, they have a license from the Malta Gaming Authority. I know the Malta Gaming Authority as one of the strictest license providers, so I’m pretty sure Bet365 had to pass some real scrutiny.
Lastly, I saw that Bet365 is also part of the Independent Betting Adjudication Service which is extra credentials for them. After reading all this, I verified all the information with third-party reviews online and found them all true.
It’s because of those things that I trust Bet365 and don’t mind being a loyal customer.

Final Verdict And Bonus Rating
Overall, I’m thrilled with the bonuses that the platform offers. Being a pretty old player in the market, Bet365 sure knows how to please its customers. Not only do they offer easy and attractive bonuses to the new players, but they also have desirable ones for existing customers. For a high rolling punter like me, the variety and quality of bonuses are important. It may even determine whether I’d want to stay with the platform or not. I guess the only con of their bonuses is that they aren’t that unique. Matching bonuses, ACCA bonuses, and safe bet bonuses are all pretty common for sports betting platforms. But if you’re not that fussy with innovation and new stuff, this shouldn’t be a problem. For that, I give a 9/10 to Bet365’s bonuses.
