Check out my full review of the Bet365 India platform right here.
My Bet365 Review: Sports and markets available
It’s quite rare that you stumble across an online betting site where the range of options just makes your jaw drop, but this is what Bet365 did for me. They have managed to cover all sports that are particularly popular in India, and this includes cricket (both domestic and international), football, MMA, rugby, basketball, and loads more. They actually have more than 30 sports listed in their sportsbook, which is one of the largest offerings that I’ve seen in 2020.
One of the main reasons that this site made my jaw drop however is the markets that they have available. Take football as a prime example, when I wanted to bet on a Premier League game that was taking place, they had literally hundreds of markets on offer. This included over/under bets, spread, moneyline, and you could even build your own bet!
Odds & Limits
I wouldn’t say that the odds with Bet365 are enormously higher than what is available elsewhere, but they are regularly around the market average or higher. This means that they are not skimping members in terms of value, which is always good to know that a bookmaker isn’t selling anybody short.
Given that they aren’t selling anyone short in terms of the odds that they offer, it’s no surprise that they are highly generous regarding maximum winnings too. At the time of writing, Bet365 will allow bets where the potential winnings go as high as 90 million Rupees, which is rather high indeed. Like other online sportsbooks too, they allow for quite small wagers to be placed when it comes to live betting. In my experience, they allowed bets to be placed for as low as 9 Rupees.
The Bet365 casino has evidently been produced by professionals, and I was seriously impressed with what games they had to offer. Whether it was table games, jackpot slots, card games, or regular video slots, it appeared that Bet365 had taken a considerable amount of time and effort to make it as exciting as possible. I personally loved the games Minted Money and Epic Ape, but there are way more than just these to go for!
Bet365 has changed the way that I view bingo gaming these days. I used to associate bingo with slow play and quite boring features, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. They had tournaments coming up all the time, and the themed games such as the Book of the Irish and Irish Luck Jackpot were really cool. On top of all of this, the entry fees for many of the games were so low, meaning that you didn’t need to spend a lot of money to have a lot of fun.
The Games section of the site was full of dynamic titles and appealing features, but there was one thing that stood out to me the most. I absolutely loved the themed games that are present in this section. Titles like Monopoly and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire were really exciting. Of course, this time I was playing these much-loved games for real money, which made it all the more exhilarating.
Vegas and Poker Review
The final corner of the Bet365 experience was the combo of Vegas and Poker games that they have on the site. I am not usually a big fan of poker gaming, but I figured I would give the Bet365 platform a shot. You can play cash games, twister events, and general sit ‘n’ go tables within this section, which gave enough variety to keep me entertained for hours.
As for the Vegas category, I developed a strong interest in the premium slots section. Here I enjoyed titles like Brazil Bomba and All-Star Knockout, but there were plenty of other available games that looked particularly inviting. All in all, I’d say the range of options for these sections combined with the quality was just top-drawer.
Does Bet365 have mobile betting available?
Yes – they have separate mobile apps for sports betting, casino play, poker gaming, and even bingo gaming.
Can I cash out my sports bets on the site?
Yes, but it does depend on how your bet is performing. Bet365 will offer quite reasonable cash out options for both single and parlay bets, and you can cash out your bet with just the push of a button.
Is it easy to make my account with Bet365?
Absolutely – just head to their site, begin the registration process, and you could have an account up and running in less than 5 minutes.
What do I need to do to live stream sporting events?
Bet365 has thousands of live streaming events each year, but you’ll need to have a funded account or have placed a wager within the last 24 hours to access this feature.
What sort of casino games do they have?
Plenty – they have card games, table games, live casino play, video slots, and even progressive jackpot slots where the payouts are just out of this world.
Is there a reasonable range of payment options?
Bet365 has a moderate range of payment methods, including popular debit/credit cards, e-wallets, online bank transfers, and a couple of others.
How can I contact customer support?
There is a live chat feature on the desktop platform, as well as an international support number. Alternatively, you can email them, but this is the slowest method of contact for sure.
Is Bet365 legal to use in India?
Yes, and details of their betting license can be found at the very bottom of their home page.
My Bet365 Review: Additional Features
In my experience, Bet365 gave me one of the most enjoyable platforms I could have wished for. It’s so advanced, yet so simple to operate at the same time, which is no doubt a major reason they have such popularity in India right now. The desktop site was already good enough, but it is the mobile apps that steal the show, in my opinion.
The format and presentation of the site are spacious, with clear links to get you to where you want to be. This means that the site is suitable for seasoned veterans and beginners, so they have all of the bases covered.
How to place in-play bets
As long as you have the funds to place the bet that you’d like to make, it is so easy to make an in-play bet with Bet365. They have a section of the site titled ‘in-play’ to make it even easier. Here you will see what markets are currently open, and you can then just select one, enter your stake and watch as the action unfolds.
Live streaming is available in a big way with Bet365. I’ve never seen such an extensive range of events that you can live stream with an online bookmaker, and the quality is generally excellent. I found that you could stream tennis games, football, cricket, basketball, and several other sports both on the desktop platform and through the mobile app.
They literally stream thousands of events each and every year, making them one of the most appealing providers out there to both bet and watch live sport in the same place.
To use the Live Streaming service you will need to be logged in and have a funded account or to have placed a bet in the last 24 hours.
Bet365 has a bunch of mobile apps to download, and each of them is tailored for a different gaming category. At the time of writing, they have a sports betting app, bingo app, poker app, and a casino app. The best part is that they are all available for Android and iOS, and you can use them all from the same betting account. The functionality of these apps is just awesome, and the loading speeds as well as the option to play using full-screen mode just tops it off.

My Bet365 Review – Leading the pack
You won’t find many betting sites (if any) available right now in the Indian market, so Bet365 is definitely a site that I’d be considering. They are a site that provides a true one-stop-shop for all of your betting needs, whether this is for sports betting, bingo play, or casino play – they have it all. All of these offerings have been rolled up and separated into several different apps too, allowing on-the-go gaming for the vast majority of their offerings.
The only criticism I would have is that the customer support team are sometimes slow to respond, particularly during periods of high activity. This really is splitting hairs, however, and on the whole, they are one of the best betting platforms that I’ve used in 2020 – and I’ve used quite a few!
