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 promotions, news and notes: 22 April 2015

 

As always, there’s lots going on across the Bet365 family of sites this week, with Bet365 Sport offering us the chance to enjoy a flutter on what could be one of the key weekends in the Premier League this season with a number of huge games at the top and bottom of the table.

Meanwhile on Bet365 Poker, you can give yourself 20 chances at winning a seat to the Big Sunday event, simply by making a deposit to your account. We’ll give you all the details on how you can take advantage of this below.

But first, let’s take a look at why now is a better time than ever to take your pick of one of a trio of fantastic new player bonuses at Bet365 Casino.

Bet365 Casino

If you haven’t yet taken advantage of Bet365 Casino’s start up offer for new players then now may be a great time to consider doing so.

One of the most pleasing aspects about having a Bet365 account with any of its sites is that with the one account, you can gain access to all the sites.

However unlike some companies, who only allow you to redeem one starter offer from their family of sites, with Bet365, if you do not have any bonuses running on your account, then you can redeem a starter bonus at another of their sites.

Bet 365 Casino new player bonus offersWhat this means is that if you joined say Bet365 Bingo or Bet365 Poker and have used up the starter offer for new players on these sites, you can now make a deposit or transfer into your Bet365 Casino account and you will be able to qualify for the great new player bonus on offer on this site too.

What is particularly great about the Bet365 Casino bonus is that you can pick from one of three different bonus options.

There is the standard bonus, which is a 100% deposit bonus payable on deposits of between £10 and £100. The slots only bonus which is a 200% deposit bonus payable on deposits of between £10 and £100 and lastly the VIP new player bonus, which is a 50% bonus payable on deposits of £200 to £1000.

All you need to do is enter the requisite code when joining the site and making your qualifying deposit. We have all the information you need about joining and the details on which Bet365 promo code you will need for each bonus on our dedicated offer page for the site.

Remember, you don’t even need to make a deposit to access this offer. If you have a funded Bet365 account elsewhere, such as with Bet365 Sport, Poker or Bingo, you can use the cash in this account to fund your Bet365 Casino account by transferring it across to your Bet365 Casino account and activate your bonus this way.

With lots of great casino games to choose from, including top online slots, blackjack, baccarat, Sic Bo, video poker and more there are plenty of ways you can start redeeming your bonus on Bet365 Casino.

And remember, join quickly and you can take advantage of Bet365 Casino’s Bankroll Boost promotion on the 23rd April!

Bet365 Sports

We’re reaching a crucial point in the Premier League season now with issues to be settled at the top and bottom of the league and as always, you can enjoy a flutter on the best of the action with Bet365 Sports this coming weekend.

With no Premier League teams in action during the Champions League and Europa League games in midweek, all teams should be well rested ahead of this weekend’s clashes.

The action starts on Saturday lunchtime with a key clash for the Europa League and potentially the fourth Champions League spot as 6th and 7th placed sides Southampton and Tottenham clash at St Mary’s. The winner of which will greatly enhance their chances of potentially qualifying for European competition next season.

The afternoon clashes sees the bottom of the table drawn into focus with a crucial relegation six-point game between Burnley and Leicester City at Turf Moor, plus QPR facing West Ham in a crucial London derby for the Hoops.  Manchester City will kick off at tea-time on Saturday taking on FA Cup finalists Aston Villa in a game that Pellegrini’s men will feel is a must win encounter.

The four remaining teams in the Premier League are in action on Sunday as Manchester United face a tricky trip down the M62 motorway to face Everton at Goodison Park, while at 4pm, the top two sides in the Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal welcome Chelsea in what promises to be another huge game.

You can place a huge number of bets, including live in play bets, on all the top Premier League games each week with Bet365 Sports, so why not join today? If you first get a bonus code for Bet365, you can get free Bet365 Sports bets when you create a new account.

Bet365 Poker

While two of Bet365 Poker’s biggest promotions of the year rumble on, the Golden Scratchcards promotion we mentioned last week and the Las Vegas Freerolls that we looked at a fortnight ago, it is important to note that there are plenty of other great reasons why you should be playing at Bet365 Poker over the coming week.

Big Sunday Promo UK Bet 365 PokerOne such item is the fantastic Road To Big Sunday promotion, which sees €100,000 up for grabs every week in one of the biggest regular online poker tournaments you will find on any UK-based site.

If you have the cash (€110 buy in) you can buy your way into the big event each week, or if your budget is substantially smaller, there are a whole host of satellite events you can participate in which will give you the chance to win through into Sunday’s main event. Here you will compete for your share of the €100,000 guaranteed prize fund.

However, did you know that you could potentially book your place in the Big Sunday final without spending a penny on a tournament entry fee? Simply make a deposit or transfer into your Bet365 Poker account of €10 or more and you will receive 20 free tournament tokens for the Big Sunday Freerolls.

Each day there are a number of Big Sunday Freeroll events which players who hold tournament tokens can enter. You have seven days within which to use these tokens in these freeroll events otherwise they expire.

However if you do and win one of the freeroll events, you’ll win entry worth €110 into the next Big Sunday event.

You have a total of 20 chances every week for every qualifying deposit you make, so don’t forget to play in as many of these events as possible to give you every possible chance to play in the Big Sunday tournament.

Bet365 Poker have confirmed that this tournament will now run until at least the 31st October 2015, so this looks likely to be a long-standing offer which you can use regularly.

To participate in this offer, join Bet365 Poker today using our bonus referrer code Bet365.

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.

What ways can I deposit money to Bet365 and have it clear instantly?

  • Credit card  (such as Visa or Mastercard)

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.
