Bet 365 is a betting and gambling website. When it first began, bet 365 did not include esports. Initially, the sports included in the website are American football, baseball, basketball, bowling, boxing, mixed martial arts, cricket, cycling, darts, futsal, Gaelic sports, golf, horse racing, ice hockey, motorsports, swimming, rugby, table tennis, tennis, volleyball, winter sports, and more!
As of writing, the website is currently hosting betting matches in professional and amateur games in Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Defense of the Ancients 2, NBA 2K, Virtual Gold, Virtual dog racing, virtual horse racing, virtual tennis, virtual motor racing, League of Legends, King of Glory, Starcraft II, Valorant, Rainbow Six Siege, Call of Duty, and more. In addition to sports and esports titles, the website also has a casino section. Inside there, you can play in their lottery, live casinos, poker, and bingo. It also has casino games if you are interested in that. One specific type of game that took my attention was jackpot games. There, the prizes that you can win are up to millions.
Aside from this, there are also other sections that bettors might want to check out. The website also features a “form & stats” section, “settings”, “scores & results”, ” promotions”, “audio”, and help section.
Currently, bet365 has 6 million customers in almost 200 countries. It is one of the largest betting companies in the United Kingdom and one of the biggest employers in Stoke. Given that the website did not initially begin as an esports betting site like most online esports betting sites, some people question whether it is good to place their money on the site. In this article, I will be reviewing the website. Its availability, site appearance, site navigation, payment methods, legalities, and security will be examined to know whether the site is suitable for esports betting or not.
Availability of Bet365 Esports
Since Bet365 is an old betting and gambling site, you can expect that the website is available to most parts of the world. According to their website, Bet365 is available in the following countries: United Kingdoms, Austria, Germany, Spain, Ireland, Serbia, Czech Republic, Greece, Bulgaria, Norway, Canada, New Zealand, Samoa, Indonesia, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, French Polynesia, Fiji Islands, New Caledonia, Philippines, Japan, South Korea, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Cambodia, India, Cuba, Russia, Iceland, Greenland, Switzerland, Netherlands, Brazil, Mexico, Valenzuela, Turkey, Armenia, Saudi Arabia, and more!
It should be noted that Bet365 is available to a certain country where most online esports betting sites are not allowed to operate — the United Kingdom. This means that more people will be able to place their bets on the site when compared to other similar websites. Unfortunately, there are some places in the world where online gambling and betting are prohibited. Some of these countries include Cyprus, North Korea, Jordan, United States (most states prohibit online gambling and betting), Iran, and Israel. If you are from these countries, it is advised not to participate in the website to avoid any problems in the future.
Unfortunately, the website does not have an application in the app stores. However, the website is mobile-friendly. This means that those with a mobile device, like smartphones or tablets, can access the site, given that they are in a country where it is allowed.
Furthermore, the site is translated into various foreign languages like Español, Italiano, Svenska, Chinese, Greek, Portuguese, Czech, Slovencina, Eesti, Cantonese, Deutsch, Dansk, Russian, Polski, Romana, Magyar, Nederlands, Ukrainian, etc.
For this part, the website’s availability to most parts of the world and inclusivity of languages shows how much it cares for its users. Since the website is operating in several countries, this means that the government in those countries has given them permission to operate and transact in their country.
Bet365 Esports site appearance
Unlike most online betting and gambling websites, whose sites are aesthetically pleasing to look at, Bet 365’s website feels retro and undated. The website does not fully utilize icons, logos, and other signal cues to inform their users where to go and what to do. Reviewing their site, it is mostly composed of texts. On the contrary, the casino section of the website feels premium and expensive. The esports section’s color theme is dull gray and green. There is not much content found on the website except for the game matches that the website is hosting/covering.
As for its mobile version, the website is more compacted compared to its PC version. The website is heavily dominated by texts. For the casual and unfamiliar bettor, this may pose a problem. They may be overloaded with information and confused with deciding where to place their bets.
In conclusion to this section, the site’s appearance is compacted, overcrowded with texts, dull-looking, and lacks icons and logos. It seems that the website is outdated or was done in a rush. The website’s appearance may translate to a lack of effort and budget given to website creation, which says a lot about the company.
Bet365 site navigation
Compared to other websites, Bet 365 feels sluggish and unresponsive, especially the mobile version. As mentioned earlier, the website is compacted and has a lot of texts, although the website’s main contents are sectioned at the bottom of their webpage. As for esports matches, the website lacks categorizations in esports titles. Navigating around the website can get frustrating due to its slow response and site crashing ( from time to time).
Payment methods at Bet365
In order to bet on the website, you will have to deposit a minimum amount of £10. The minimum withdrawal amount you can do for payouts is around £5 – £25, depending on your payment method. You can use the payment methods on the website: credit cards, debit cards, Paypal, instadebit, astropay, apple wallet, etc. Based on their partnerships with these companies, it seems that the site and its transactions are safe and secure.
Legalities and security
The website has an operating license provided by the Gibraltar Government and regulated by the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner. The policies on the site are straightforward. Reviewing them, there are no problems or areas hackers and cheaters can exploit. Their terms and conditions discuss the limits and range of actions the company and the user can do.
Bet365 Esports Review – Conclusion
In conclusion, Bet 365 is a betting website that is catered more to casino players. The problem with the site is that it is outdated, unresponsive, and full of texts. According to other reviewers, they have encountered issues due to the faults mentioned above.
