As Bet365 is not currently available in the state of New York, this review is based on the Bet365 sportsbook in states where it is available. One of the world's biggest betting companies, Bet365 has ambitious plans for US growth. The British-based operator began its US adventure in New Jersey and it is expected that Bet365 will be one of the next sportsbooks to launch in New York. This page will be updated as soon as more details are available.
A major part of Bet365’s international success has been its ability to acquire new customers with generous welcome offers. We fully expect to see this continue once Bet365 enters the stage in New York.
In states where it’s already operating, Bet365’s usual sign-up promo is to reward new players with $200 in bonus funds in return for depositing $10 and then wagering a mere dollar.
If Bet365 offers the same welcome bonus in New York as it does elsewhere when it launches, to activate it all you need to do is register a new account and meet the sportsbook’s requirements for doing so. Then deposit $10 and bet just $1.
The $200 in ‘free money’ will automatically be credited to your playable balance once your chosen wager has settled and will usually be available within an hour of the initial bet being settled.
The additional good news is that you’ll receive the bonus whether your bet wins or loses so there’s zero risk attached.
There are a few additional new customer terms and conditions to be aware of to avoid missing out.
You will need to wager at least $1 on any sport within 30 days of opening a new account. Qualifying bets are those placed at odds of -500 or greater and if you choose to place a parlay, at least one of the legs must have odds of -500 or higher too.
Bonus funds are non-withdrawable and can’t be used on teasers or markets that are offered with an odds boost.
If Bet365 provides the same welcome offer in New York as it does elsewhere, it will instantly be one of the best NY sportsbook promos around. It’s effectively a free hit and there’s nothing onerous at all to qualify for it.
That compares most favorably with the other NY sportsbooks. For example, DraftKings will hand new users a 20% deposit match of up to $1000 but to hit $200 in bonus funds, an opening outlay of $1000 is required.
Similarly, the ‘No Sweat First Bet’ promo from FanDuel would need a first wager of $200 to receive the same amount in free bets and is only activated if it loses.
Meanwhile, the BetMGM NY promo offers new customers in New York up to $1,000 in free bets if your first bet loses. That means you’d need to wager $200 to match Bet365’s bonus funds, but with just a 1x playthrough requirement you can instantly receive the cash on any winnings.
Back to Bet365 and there’s even a good chance your opening bet will win given that the minimum odds are -500 (giving an implied probability of 83.%). You won’t win much off a dollar at that price of course but you can choose to go much higher and back a heavy favorite.
There are no particular restrictions on what the $200 in credit can be used for apart from a few ‘special’ bets and markets for which other promos apply. All in all, you can try Bet365 out and even if you choose not to make it your main sportsbook, a weekend of fun bets using the bonus funds awaits.
Bet365’s ongoing promotions are intriguing, unique and promise to bring something different to New York. A staple, offered by most of the NY sportsbooks, are odds boosts and Bet365 delivers on that score.
Regular pricing uplifts are applied to MLB, NFL and other major US leagues. Even better, there are often a lot of them at Bet365 and odds boosts can be easily identified by a green ‘up’ arrow on applicable markets.
What should stand Bet365 out from the NY betting crowd though are its early payout features. Bet365 has consistently applied such promos to its operations in Europe and elsewhere and is busy positioning itself ahead of its rivals in the US on this score.
Early payouts are not the same as cashing a bet out before an event has completed. When applicable, you’ll get your winnings in full once certain criteria have been met. For example, this might be when an NFL team goes 17 points ahead or if a baseball franchise races into a five-run lead.
Early payouts are regularly applied to parlay legs too. It makes for the potential to earn a profit without the risk that the opposing team will make a comeback and you can have winnings in your account to either withdraw ahead of time or quickly go again.
On top of all those regular betting promotions, you can expect to see additional offers for big games and tournaments alongside regular competitions such as predicting the score for a handful of matchups to be in with the chance of winning free bets and other prizes.
Bet365 doesn’t currently have any loyalty schemes like so many of the top NY sportsbooks or a refer-a-friend scheme however.

Having cut its teeth in the UK, the most competitive online betting market of them all, and risen to the top across Europe and beyond, Bet365 promises to be an exciting addition to the NY sports betting market when it launches in the state.
Boasting unrivaled features such as extensive in-play offerings, live streaming and solid promos, Bet365 won’t settle to be a bit part player in New York. But just what will it bring to the Empire State’s already bursting-at-the-seams sports betting scene?

The story behind Bet365 is fairly unique and one that has been filled with huge success and astonishing growth. The company was founded by Denise Coates in Stoke-on-Trent, a city in the Midlands of England and a place awash with industrial history. Stoke is best known for its ceramics and pottery manufacturing.
Ms Coates started her gambling business in a small portable building in 2000. Just how the daughter of an army veteran turned catering entrepreneur grew the Bet365 brand into a global operation, competing with betting operators who had existed for decades, is seriously impressive.
Today, Denise Coates is one of the wealthiest women in Great Britain and remains the majority shareholder in Bet365. The company retains a strong family ethos with Ms Coates’ father and brother also heavily involved in its running.
With a focus on a strong internet product from the outset, Bet365 continues to lead the way in online and mobile betting. Bet365 now has a presence in over 200 territories across the world. In March 2022, the company announced a full-year revenue figure of $3.4 billion and it now employs 9,000 people worldwide.
The brand made its first foray into the North American sports betting industry with a license to operate in New Jersey followed by Colorado, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa and Ontario.
Bet365 has previously attempted to enter the New York market but was unsuccessful in making the first tranche of sportsbooks to be approved. Bet365 will surely come back all the stronger for that when it is finally ratified to trade in the Empire State.
Bet365 is available as an app on iOS and Android and in mobile web and desktop form. For those who bet on more than one platform, it’s instantly noticeable that for all of the forms it takes, Bet365 looks remarkably similar across them all.
The same is true for Bet365’s appearance in all of the states, territories and nations in which it operates. The effect is to reinforce a strong identity, albeit lacking a little innovation to take into account local tastes and preferences.
What Bet365 does achieve above all else is to deliver the same sporting categories, features, promotions and markets in a near-identical manner no matter how you access it, be it handheld or via a PC.
Bet365 certainly delivers solid apps and online options though some might be a tad underwhelmed and even consider that it can look somewhat dated in parts. For New Yorkers spoilt for choice with the giants that are DraftKings and FanDuel alongside WynnBet and BetMGM plus a plethora of other sportsbooks, Bet365’s appearance alone might not tempt them to stray.
The Bet365 apps handle better than its mobile and desktop versions which can occasionally be laggy and ungainly. That’s most notable in terms of navigation and switching between different menus but also for logging in at times.
The upside though is that once you’ve negotiated your way to the markets you desire, the platforms respond super quickly to user input and selecting wagers to add to the bet slip. Bet365 is streets ahead of most of its rivals in how quickly it refreshes odds too and if you’re line shopping, you’ll often find that prices reflect the latest information and live happenings long before some other sportsbooks.
The bet slip itself is one of the best around, displaying picks in a clear manner along with easy-to-access options such as building parlays and choosing other more specialized wager types. The same is true of the ‘My Bets’ summary where you can track your choices easily.
That speed of refresh also means that Bet365’s live betting options are superior to many and that its cash-out values are always up to date and suffer little from suspended markets - an irritation that blights plenty of betting sites whose algorithms and human oddsmakers are ages behind in comparison.
Bet365 has long built its betting offerings around a host of additional features too. Most markets have extensive stats menus that display everything from recent form to head-to-head results to standings and more advanced metrics to inform your bet. This extends to Bet365’s live betting displays with far more in-game stats than many other sportsbooks.
Overall, the user experience at Bet365 is good with a compact, well-structured layout that belies the extensive features that reside beneath. As the Brit brand continues its incremental growth in the US, the Bet365 journey towards delivering one of the best sportsbooks in the country will only accelerate.
With Bet365 yet to launch in New York, we’ll have to wait to give our definitive verdict. However we’d expect the brand to offer residents of the Empire State the same app that’s used elsewhere, which has been available for a few years now and gained a high number of user reviews.
App Store Rating: 4.7
Apple users rate the Bet365 app highly overall, praising its speed, usability and range of betting options. Some users report minor technical glitches from time to time, however these seem to be handled with fairly regular updates.
Google Play Store Rating: 4.5
The Android version of the Bet365 app is almost identical to the version for Apple devices, and users have for the most part enjoyed the speed, range of betting options and easy to use functionality. There are occasional reports of errors such as the app crashing, however like the Apple version, Bet365 seems to roll out regular updates to improve the experience.
Bet365’s customer support options are largely sufficient for the needs of most but it’s probably fair to say that it’s not the strongest betting site in this regard.
The help section and assorted libraries of guidance articles are by no means the most extensive. They are logically ordered and clear though - an attribute that doesn’t apply to all sportsbooks. You’ll easily find what you’re looking for should your query be relatively routine and the help area’s search function quickly returns relevant results.
If you need to get in touch with Bet365 for additional assistance you’ll find its contact options are on par with most betting sites.
Live chat is available 24/7 and is easy to access with quick response times. You can also send Bet365’s support team a private message from your account if you’re happy to wait for a reply or there’s a toll-free telephone option.
Opening a new Bet365 account is simple and doesn’t take long. Follow the link on its desktop site or after downloading the app. You’ll be asked to choose a username, password and four-digit PIN before being required to enter your personal details.
Bet365 employs a verification process that’s identical to the other NY sportsbooks. You will need to provide the last four numbers of your Social Security Number. You will also be asked to upload an item of government-issued ID at some point after registering a new account for verification purposes.
Bet365 offers all of the main deposit and withdrawal methods. Note that the cash option only applies to states where Bet365 has a retail sportsbook. There are no current plans to open such a facility in New York. Banking choices are as follows:
1 - 5 business days

To deposit to a Bet365 account, click on the relevant button and follow the onscreen instructions. To add a new payment method head for the ‘Bank’ menu to access the ‘Manage Cards’ option. You’ll then be prompted to enter your card details, including the Card Security Number (CV2) which is the last three digits on the signature strip.
Take care to be sure you’ve entered your card details correctly and that you have sufficient funds available as Bet365 imposes a limit on the number of unsuccessful deposit attempts it will permit before suspending an account for 24 hours.
To withdraw funds from a Bet365 account, follow the relevant links from the ‘Bank’ page. In most cases, money will be credited to the original payment method though this will vary if you have made deposits from multiple sources.
All of the main bet types are available at Bet365. As standard, the main sports pages display moneyline bets along with spread betting options and totals betting markets. That’s in line with every other NY sportsbook so will be familiar to all bettors.
From the market overview menus, a quick click opens up all other bet types available for a game or a tournament. That tap instantly reveals that Bet365 quite possibly offers more betting options than almost any other sportsbook for many events.
Same-game parlay betting markets feature prominently and the array of options available to build such a bet is dazzling. So long as your selections are valid - that is the outcomes aren’t correlated - you can build a vast number of same-game parlays with the only limits seemingly being your imagination and ingenuity.
Prop bets are no disappointment at Bet365 either with more options available than most sportsbooks. Player props, game props, score props and half/quarter props are offered extensively. In fact, the list of props available for most NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL games is too big to list in detail here. Alongside all of those, you’ll find as many alternate spreads and totals as you could ever wish to find.
As you’d expect from such a comprehensive betting site, Bet365 has excellent coverage of all of the biggest US sports but also offers a wide variety of others from around the world.
Bet365 has been busy honing its product for US sports fans and it sure shows in how it handles the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL. All of that is supplemented by one of the substantial streaming services of any sportsbook.
Indeed, part of Bet365’s success elsewhere in the world has been built on its live betting feeds, bringing a fresh option for sports fans who might not access games via TV subscription services.
As well as America’s favorite sports, there’s motorsports, tennis betting and golf. Not content with all of that? With such a huge global presence, Bet365 also has markets for UFC betting, badminton, cricket, boxing, cycling, darts, handball, lacrosse, rugby, snooker, table tennis and volleyball.
Bet365 also has virtual sports and esports. Indeed, the brand was one of the first in the world to bring esports into the betting fold. You’ll simply struggle to find a broader range of sports to bet on anywhere.
On balance, Bet365 is a really good sportsbook though it doesn’t quite hit the heights of greatness. There are enough neat features here though to delight serious and casual players alike.
Bet365 has built its global brand on excellent promos, distinctive betting features, substantial sports groupings and live betting options that are ahead of the game.
Bet365 will be an excellent addition to any bettor’s portfolio whether you choose to use it as your main betting sportsbook or sign-up to make the most of its best bits.
