Review of Betting Markets
Right lets dive into the juicy part and take a look at the different markets that are on offer. There are over 30 different sports sections on the Bet365 website which cover sporting events which take place all over the globe. Odds are offered on the following sports at Bet365:
American Football, Aussie Rules, Baseball, Basketball, Bowls, Boxing, UFC, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, Futsal, Gaelic Sports, Golf, Greyhound Racing, Horse Racing, Ice Hockey, F1, Nascar, Rugby League & Union, Snooker, Soccer, Speedway, Tennis, Volleyball, Skiing, Biathlon, Badminton, Handball, Squash and finally Trotting.
Basically Bet365 offer a heck of a lot of sports options to their punters. They got some really obscure stuff on there which you won’t find at other online bookmakers and they’ve got a mass of different options on popular sports such as Football, Cricket, Tennis and Horse Racing.
All the sports you can bet on at Bet365 are listed down the left hand side of their website and their new improved interactive platform allows you to quickly pull up odds on any sport into the main screen area on the right hand side. The brand new platform Bet365 use is super quick and load times for every market is less than 3 seconds. They’ve also got one of the biggest and best In-Play sections around.
In-Play at Bet365
No Bet365 review would be complete without a look at the In-Play suite Bet365 provide to all their punters. Don’t worry before you ask yes they do cover more interesting matches than AL Ahil Dubai vs Emirates Club RAK – in fact over 90% of the markets offered at Bet365 are turned in-play. From our experience Bet365 have the widest range of in-play odds and markets you’ll find anywhere on the web.
To navigate to the live section at Bet365 all you’ve got to do is hit the ‘Live In-Play’ link located at the top of the nav bar of the left hand side of the site.
One of the features offered via the Bet365 live interface is the ability to move events in and out of a favourites section which is located in the top left of the screen. Just click the star next to any market you want to add to your favourites and it’ll be listed before the rest. A top quality feature and one pioneered by Bet365 and now copied by many other bookies.
You’ve also got live scores and match stats in the In-Play section at Bet365 so you’ll know when the situation in the event your gambling on changes. Stats from the event are also included if you click the small graph symbol in the live scores area (you can see this in the image above).
Anyone doing a review of Bet365 looking at their In-Play options would be impressed and on top of all the features mentioned above you can even watch some events live via the In-Play section as well.
Bet365 Live Streaming Service
A massive range of sporting events are now streaming live at Bet365 thanks to their impressive live streaming service. The service is free to anyone who has an account with Bet365 which has at least £1 in it. That’s the only requirement there is to watch the free coverage they provide unless it’s horse racing where you must have bet a minimum of 50p on the race to watch.
What Sports Are Shown?
Here’s a brief list of the top sports that are currently shown on Bet365:
Football, Darts, Tennis, Soccer, Basketball, Snooker, Handball, Horse Racing, Badminton, Volleyball, Beach Volleyball, Bowls, Ice Hockey.
There are live events on every single day at Bet365 and you can now access all the streams available via the in-play suite which means you can watch and see the odds on screen at the same time. This option is found to the right hand side of the live scores when you’re in the in-play section.
We know this particular review hasn’t really found any negatives so far but when you look at the in-play suite it just can’t be rivaled by any other bookmaker that offers users the safety and security that Bet365 do. You’ll love it.

5 Star Grade Explained
You’ll have noticed at the top of this page we’ve given Bet365 a 5 out of 5 star site rating.
A 5 star rating is defined as:
‘The best of the best bookmakers, we trust these guys with our money and so should you.’
What this basically means is that Bet365 is one of the safest online bookies you’ll find online. Any winning bets you place at Bet365 will be paid out and paid out promptly and you’ll be able to withdraw you cash with no questions asked.
Bet365 are a global brand, their website is available in 17 different languages, there’s a free Bet365 app and a Bet365 casino app and their presence across the world in the industry is second to none. They don’t often get the coverage and exposure they deserve online as they won’t pay top dollar to appear in the recommended spots of online portals and review sites.
They rely on webmasters to review them with honesty and showcase the features they can offer punters as well as the piece of mind.
