The views in this review are those of the author and in no way are associated with Bet365.
IF Samuel L. Jackson says it’s good, it must be good.
And it’s hard to disagree with the superstar actor when you log on to Bet365 and realise just how easy it is to place a bet on thoroughbred racing with the popular world wide bookie.
Whether its the racing in Australia, or the best nags from across the world, you’ll find it all in the one place at bet365.com.au.
And it really is so quick and easy to navigate, you won’t have a drama.
The bookie is another one of those United Kingdom giants that has worked its way into the Australian market, providing healthy competition among the corporate bookmakers.
The bookie has it all.
Our focus will be on the racing side of things, but you’ll also find plenty of sports books, as well as poker, bingo and casino, but of course, those aren’t available in Australia. Those are for the internationals.
Here we’ll tell you a bit about the website and mobile and tablet apps and give you the low down on how it all works.
Welcome to Flash. And oh, how we love it. Bet365’s website is about as good as it gets. Apart from the fact it’s super easy to read and even easier to navigate.
On vistiing bet365.com.au you’ll note the familiar green and yellow colour scheme, with easy to read white text on black panels. Log in is top right, as is the join now column, if you’re yet to take advantage of the bookie.
Go left to check out sports or in play betting and even further left for the Bet365 emblem, which will take you to the home page. Down the left hand side is the sports panel, and down the right is your bet slip at the top, with current events below.
The middle panel provides a welcome and join now option, with detail of the bookie’s new ‘bet in play’ option.
Below that takes you to the next three thoroughbred races, greyhound races and other popular sporting events kicking off soon, with an option to view the full list.
Other sporting events are available, but we want to click on the prominent horse racing tab to take us to the racing home.
It provides the three ‘next to jump races’ and then below that a full list of racing the bookie is providing odds on. Every race is there.
Just click on the one you want to see a full list of runners for, with colours, odds, records, trainers and jockeys. You’ll see odds on tote and fixed for all races, with some events offering racing products for bet365 best, bet365 mid plus and bet365 tote.
Placing a bet is as easy as point and click, provided you have an account. Make your selection, add it to your betslip, enter your stake, review and then submit your bet.
The only way to describe Bet365’s horse racing offering is comprehensive. It hardly misses a race and has all the events, from Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival to the Kentucky Derby. You’ll find them all here. The bookie provides options for Australian, United Kingdom and international thoroughbred racing, greyhounds and harness racing.
Bet365 horse racing coverage is split into sections, with Australia and New Zealand grouped and at the top of the pile. Below you will find International races, which seriously every race meeting from around the world, whether it be in India or the UK. North American racing is then given a section of it’s own, right down the bottom.
Other features of the racing section of the Bet365 Australia website include hundreds of futures markets on various races from around the world, including all of the major group races down under. For instance last year after the Melbourne Cup, we checked if they had a market for the following year… and yes they did. This is just one example of how Bet365’s horse racing coverage is extensive to say the least.
You will also find Bet365 racing promotions are common, but they no longer have a sign up bonus, in accordance with Australian laws.
Bet365 no longer offers a welcome package for Australian horse racing fans. They do however run racing promotions. Check the site for the latest info.
Bet365 has all the deposit options you could possibly imagine. It’s best to check the website for the latest options.
With bookmakers you will find there is a minimum deposit. For example Bet365 might have a minimum deposits between $1 and $100, depending on which medium the user decides to make their contribution with.
The bookie has a mobile website as well as easy to use apps for Apple, Android and Windows devices. All you have to do is visit the app store to download the apps and you’ll be able to place your bets on the go. The mobile device operates much the same way as the website, just in a condensed version. As a matter of fact this author finds it easier navigating their mobile website or app than their desktop version, which can be cumbersome at times.
As we’ve mentioned, the Bet365 website is so easy to use, if we didn’t recommend shopping around for the best odds on other betting sites, it would be our go to bookie for convenience. Make sure your Flash is up to date for best results, but, with the backing of one of the biggest companies in the UK and the recognisable voice of Samuel L. Jackson, it’s hard to go past this bookie for the widest variety of racing markets and most competitive odds on all your favourite go to events.
