Deposits vs transfers at bet365

Remember – for bet365 bonuses, the standard policy is that a transfer from another part of your bet365 wallet is the same as making a deposit. So you can claim most of these bonuses (if not all) just by moving money back and forth between your bet365 accounts.

bet365 Bonus codes and bet365 offer codes – What’s the difference?

Using a bonus code at bet365 is simple. The initial bonus code shouldn’t be confused with “offer codes” that you’ll receive from bet365 later.

The bet365 bonus code (also called the “bonus referrer code” or simply the “referrer code” depending on the specific bet365 product you sign up for) is just something you enter when making your account at bet365, as shown below.

Illustration: Using the bet365 bonus code at signup

bet365 uses the referrer code – ours is PBONUS – to know how you found bet365. It’s basically just for their internal marketing purposes. The bonus / referrer code doesn’t have any other impact on your account. You only need to use the bet365 bonus code once, at signup, and then you’re done with it forever.

So how do bet365 offer codes work, and are they any different from bonus codes?

Offer codes are separate codes that you’ll receive directly from bet365. These are the codes you’ll use to claim specific bonuses offered by bet365. Offer codes are always changing – each promotion is accompanied by a unique offer code.

If you ever need to request an offer code, simply log in to your bet365 and you’ll be able to request one right from there. Offer codes will always be available directly from bet365 support and are almost always available simply by logging into your account and requesting the code by clicking a link.

Bet365 Sport

After the Grand National and Augusta last weekend, there’s no letting up in the sporting calendar this week with the World Snooker Championship starting on Saturday 18th April, the Bahrain Grand Prix on the 19th plus a host of Champions League and Europa League quarter finals throughout the week prior.

However all eyes this weekend in England at least will be on Wembley where four teams will battle it out for a place in the showpiece event of the English League season, the FA Cup Final.

First up on Saturday 18th April are the favourites for the cup, Arsenal who take on the only remaining team from outside the Premier League, Reading in the first semi final.

Arsene Wenger’s men are the huge favourites here against a side that have generally struggled in the league below the Premiership. Arsenal have picked up a stunning 33 points from their last 36 available in the Premier League, but they did suffer the ignominy of a Champions League exit at the hands of AS Monaco during that time.

It’s a huge test for Reading who will have nothing to lose, but there is absolutely no doubt that the bookmakers are fully expecting a convincing Arsenal win here and it is hard to disagree with that.

On Sunday 19th April, a date that will resonate with fans of one of the teams, Aston Villa will face off against Liverpool in what is sure to be an emotionally-charged encounter at the National Stadium.

Liverpool fans will recognise the date as the 26th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster and with the inquest into that still running, few Reds fans will need reminding of the importance of that date to them.

However Liverpool don’t come into this game in great shape having suffered two key defeats to Manchester United and Arsenal recently and with Brendan Rodgers men looking toothless in attack and lacking some key players through a combination of injury and suspension, they may be favourites here, but they are by no means a certainty to win.

Indeed, Aston Villa can already point to a win over Liverpool at Anfield earlier this season as proof they can beat the men in red. Manager Tim Sherwood seems to have galvanised the side and with Premier League safety now much more likely after a superb 1-0 win over Tottenham last weekend, Sherwood’s team can view this game as a chance to reach the FA Cup Final, rather than a distraction from their league woes.

The bookies have Liverpool as the favourites here, but they are very short odds for a team that are not playing with the swagger and verve of teams past and this could be a game that goes either way. In which case, a bet on the draw, or even an Aston Villa win could be a good value punt.

Sports betting is a real pleasure with Bet365 thanks to its simple to use betting site and app. If you are not yet a Bet365 customer then you may be interested in the Bet365 Sports welcome bonus. Follow the link for all the details you need to get started on this site and betting like an expert in no time at all.

To play live casino games with a human dealer and live video feed via your Apple device, simply download the Live Casino app from the App Store.

Once there, you can log in and select from a large number of different cash table games (including premium cash tables) or Sprint Poker games, with many different blind levels available in each to suit all budgets.

Unfortunately, there are no options to play sit & go or multi table tournament games. There are also no freeroll options currently available on the Bet365 Mobile Poker site.

What is a banker bet on Bet365?

A banker bet on Bet365 is a multiple bet where you identify one or more part of the bet that must win (the ‘banker’ bet or bets) in order for the remainder of the bet to become active.

If you wish to place a banker bet you must have a minimum of two other selections in the bet that are not banker bets, therefore, you must make a minimum of three selections in order for a banker bet to be available on the betting slip.

When you have made your selections, you can then select which of your choices you want as banker bets. This can be one selection, or more if you have made more selections on your bet slip.

Your banker bets must win in order for the other bets to come active.

Depending on how many other selections you make, you can then perm your banker bet with the other selections in a number of ways.

For example, if I was to place a bet on which teams would win the World Cup, the Spanish, Italian and English League titles in 2014 and I picked Germany, Real Madrid, Juventus and Chelsea.

I would select Germany as my banker bet and then I can back any of the following bets:

  • 1B + 1/3 – This is three single bets which pairs the banker bet (Germany) with each of the other three teams to make three double bets (Germany & Real Madrid, Germany & Juventus and Germany and Chelsea).
  • 1B + 2/3 – This is three treble bets which pairs the banker bet (Germany) with two of the three selections on my slip (Germany plus Real Madrid & Juventus, Germany plus Real Madrid & Chelsea and Germany plus Juventus and Chelsea).
  • 1B + 3/3 – This is an accumulator bet which means that I am backing my banker bet plus each of the other options to win.

You can opt to back ALL of these selections but this will mean placing seven bets at your original stake. So if you placed £10 on each selection, the total bet cost would be £70. (£30 for the 1B + 1/3, £30 for the 1B + 2/3 and £10 for the 1B + 3/3).

If you make more selections on a slip, then you can select more than one selection as a banker bet, provided there are enough non-banker bet options to make sufficient bets from.

For more information, be sure to read our guide to Bet365 Sports Banker Bets.

How do I make a multiple bet on Bet365?

Making a multiple bet on Bet365 is very simple. All you need to do is add the selections to your betting slip that you want to back. This is achieved by clicking on the odds next to your chosen selection.

When you have added two or more selections to your slip, underneath your selections will be a tab called Multiple Bet Options.

Clicking on this will expand the tab to show you all the different multiple betting options that you have available, together with the odds of success on your chosen bet.

All you need to do is locate which type of multiple bet you wish to make, this can include accumulator bets, doubles, trebles, and several multiple bets, which will see you place many individual bets as part of a single larger bet as in a Super Yankee (26 bets) or Permed Patent (70 bets) or similar.

Once you have found the multiple bet you wish to make, simply enter your chosen unit stake for each of the bets your multiple will make. It is important to note here that bets with multiple betting lines, will require a stake for each bet.

Therefore, if you make five selections on a bet and want to place a five-fold accumulator, this is just one betting line and as such, you will place just one betting unit. Therefore if you place £10 as your unit stake on this bet, it will cost you £10.

However, if you place a Permed Patent (70 bets) on your five selections and place a Unit Stake of £10, this will actually cost you £700 (£10 x 70 bets = £700).

The good news is you can see the cost of your multiple bet as soon as you add it to the coupon and if it is too expensive, you can easily remove it.

When you have placed the bet you wish to make at the right unit stake, simply click the yellow Place Bet button and you will have placed your multiple bet.

How does Bet365 make a profit?

As a company, the Bet365 family of sites makes a profit from its gambling operations, however how each part of the site makes a profit is different.

On the Sports, In Play and Financials sites, Bet365 makes its profits by ensuring that the odds it offers on its markets are balanced enough so that it can make a profit on the market in question. The company uses specialist programs to calculate the odds of each individual market and to track the bets made to ensure that they offer a fair degree of profitability.

Of course, any betting site makes its money from punters who make wagers that lose. This simple fact combined with controlling the odds of markets carefully allows these arms of the company to post a profit.

On the Casino, Games and Vegas sites, Bet365 makes a profit by a phenomenon called the “house edge.” The house edge is the built-in advantage to all casino games, which mean that over time, the house is more likely to make a profit. The smaller the house edge on any particular game or bet, then the smaller that profit will be.

Casino games vary wildly in what they offer as house edge with some slots and games having a very high house edge (20 percent or greater) and some offering a house edge that is just 1 or 2 percent.

The house edge on each game ensures that over time the casino will make a small profit on each game, but the sheer number of games Bet365 offers via its Casino, Vegas and Games sites mean that this accumulates into a larger profit.

In Bet365 Poker, players pay a ‘rake’ to the casino when they play cash table games and contribute money to the pot. This rake is the money the casino takes for hosting the game. In sit & go and multi table tournament games, the rake is paid alongside the buy in fee and is usually around 10 percent of the buy in fee.

By using each of these methods, all facets of the Bet365 platform contribute profits each day towards the company’s annual profits.

Does Bet365 offer self-exclusion? Can you reverse Bet365 self-exclusion?

Yes, Bet365 offer customers the option to self-exclude themselves from any part, or all of the site for periods of 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, or 5 years.

You can select specific areas of the site which you do not wish to access (such as Sports or Poker) and access will be denied for the stated period to these parts of the site.

Once you have selected this option in your account section or by contacting a member of the Bet365 team, you are not able to reverse the decision to self-exclude yourself from a part of the site until the period of time stated by the exclusion has elapsed.

Can I control my betting or deposit limits at Bet365?

You are able to control your deposit limits at Bet365.

With this facility, you are able to select a maximum amount you will be allowed to deposit into your account within a 24-hour or 7-day period.

Once these levels have been set you can revise them downwards, though the change will not take affect until 24-hours after you have made the request to alter the deposit limits.

All bets offered by Bet365 Sport have a maximum bet level that the company will not accept bets over. You can see what this level is by clicking on the Bet Max tab underneath the stake box. You cannot place a bet over the stated maximum for that market with Bet365.

What are Bet365 Poker merit points worth?

The merit points system in Bet365 Poker is the basis on which the VIP system works. You earn merit points at the rate of 15 for every £1 in attributed tournament fees or rake at Bet365 Poker.

Over time, if you accrue enough merit points within a stated time period (one month) you can trade them in for a cash reward. You need 7,500 merit points to earn the lowest cash reward of $50.

The more merit points you earn in a month, the higher up the VIP system you climb through four levels starting at Bronze then on to Silver, Gold and finally Platinum. The rewards on offer at each level increase as you progress.

You can also trade in merit points for tournament tokens as well as cash.

How do I watch Bet365 streaming?

Bet365 offer an extensive live streaming service for sports enthusiasts and it is completely free (apart from horse racing) for customers to use provided that they have placed a bet within the past 24-hours, or have got funds in their account.

The easiest way to watch any of the available live streams on Bet365 is to click on the Live Streaming tab on the home page. This will bring up the live streaming menu, which lists all the different sporting events that the site is offering.

This list can be sorted by sporting events or date, allowing you to quickly find the stream you want to watch.

You can also access live streaming easily from the In Play section of the site.

The only difference to this for a sport is for horse racing. Here, if you place a bet of 50p or more on any horse race in the UK and Ireland, you are able to watch the stream of that race for free via Bet365.

To do so, log into the site a few minutes before the race is due to start, select the race you placed your bet on and when available, an option to watch the live stream will appear. Click on this and you can watch the race live from your mobile or PC at no extra cost.

Who owns Bet365?

Bet365 are owned by the Coates family, with founder Denise Coates maintaining a 50.1 percent ownership of the company and the rest of the shares are owned by her brother John and her father Peter.

It was Peter Coates who began the family’s long ties with the betting industry in the 1970s when he was a successful high street bookmaker. Peter Coates ran the company until the mid-1990s, when his daughter Denise took control.

In 2000, from a portakabin in the heart of Stoke-on-Trent, Denise Coates developed the first Bet365 website and betting platform. Taking out a £15m loan against their successful betting shop business, they launched the first Bet365 website and betting platform in March 2001.

The family set up oversaw huge growth for the fledgling company and now Bet365 is one of the world’s largest online gambling platforms, with a turnover on sports betting alone of £12.2 billion in March 2012.

The company now employs over 2,100 people and is still based in Stoke-on-Trent. Peter Coates is also now the owner of the local Premier League football club, Stoke City.
