Bet365 Sports review

Probably everyone's heard about Bet365 one way or another - this sportsbook brand has certainly made a good name for itself, and continues to keep up with the times to offer punters a varied and modern online betting experience. In this review, we'll have a closer look at what Bet365 has to offer with regard to sports betting in particular. So if you have never placed a bet with Bet365 yet, here's what you should know before registering.

Bet365 Sports site features

The Bet365 website is a well-thought-out and classic-looking site which enables punters to bet with great ease. Its selection of sports is quite expensive; alongside the most popular sports like soccer, horse racing, greyhound racing, volleyball and tennis, there's also the likes of snooker, esports, winter sports and even lotto (yes, you can bet on the outcome of the lottery without actually buying lottery tickets!). A separate In-play section displays all the live odds currently available for a number of sports, with the option to watch certain sports events on the site itself thanks to the Bet365 Live Streaming service, located at the top right of the screen.

Perhaps what keeps Bet365 so ahead of the game are the excellent features that complement its casino offering, especially when it comes to sports betting. We were delighted to learn about the site's Cash Out option, which gives players more control over their bets by thanks to the possibility of cashing out the winnings before a match is over. This feature is only available on selected events across a variety of sports including soccer, tennis and basketball. When the Cash Out option is available, punters can also make use of the Edit Bet feature for all unsettled selections to add, swap or remove selections; this option gives you added flexibility over your bets and we think it's a very great feature indeed.

The Bet Builder feature available at Bet365 is another favourite of ours. Bet Builder allows punters to create the pre-match bet they want on any Soccer match. One can select from the most popular markets available and add them to a bet, then calculate the odds. For example, one can choose First Goalscorer, Both Teams to Score and total number of cards to create a single bet with the price for the combined selections.
