Just One Word: Trustworthy

Bet365 has popular casino software with hundreds of exciting games, million-dollar jackpots, and a reputation for fair payouts. In addition, they have many sports betting options for games around the world with several in-play features and a top-class poker software.

I am impressed with Bet365, which combines casino games, poker, sports bets, and live dealer games. Many call Bet365 the #1 all-in-one gambling site on Earth. I feel the same way, so you might do the same once you've tried them out. Bet365 simply has the best combination of games, software, promotions, and customer support.

The main drawback is Bet365 doesn't accept most US players, with the exception of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. For non-Americans, that boosts the security and trust-factor of the site, since they want to make sure to stay out of any legal trouble, which is a risk that US casinos take.

Bet365 Banking Options: Depositing Is Easy and Hassle-Free

Bet365 Casino provides you with a full range of deposit options: Visa, Mastercard, Neteller, Skrill, Ukash, Western Union, MoneyGram®, Instadebit, EntroPay, Click2Pay, bank transfer, cheque and bank wire. European players have access to many of the top Eurocard and UK debit cards,. As an international gaming site, you can deposit with your currency: the British Pound, Euro, AUD, CAD, Chinese RMB, Hong Kong $, Singapore $, Baht, Yen, Ringgit, Swedish Krona. 

Bet365 is active in the United States and the international online casino market, so the banking options can be confusing if you don't keep that in mind. The US: New Jersey Bet365 is an entirely different website than the international online casino, so I'll list the payment methods for the US and international scene below. Depending on your country of residence, international deposits and withdrawals might vary.

International deposit methods are few, but the ones offered are good ones. Credit and debit max out at $40,000, while web wallets max out at $35,000 for Skrill nd $37,500 for Neteller.

Bet365 New Jersey - $100 Welcome Bonus

Bet365 Casino's New Jersey gaming portal allows anyone 18 or older in the Garden State to set up an account. The welcome bonus for new depositers is $100 with a 15x wagering requirement. The sports betting bonus is $500 at a 50% rate, or a risk-free first bet up to $200. If you lose the bet, it's returned to you as a rebate bonus (with a wagering requirement). 

Members have access to the online casino, sports betting, and in-play betting apps. Online or mobile casino games include the latest from NetEnt, such as Asgardian Stone, Divine Fortune, or Starburst. Licensed slots like Guns N'Roses, Jimi Hendrix, James Dean, or Harley-Davidson: Freedom Tour are available. Those who prefer the classics can try Gonzo's Quest or Blood Suckers. 

Bet365 runs on Windows, Mac, Linux and mobile devices. And, although this should go without saying, the mobile experience is great. It really seems hard to believe how one company excels at so many areas. I really can't think of a better online casino software, although Bovada Casino (for US) and Bodog give Bet365 a run for their money.

Software

Bet365 uses Playtech software, one of the most widespread and oldest online casino software designers on the Internet. Playtech (1996) claims to be the oldest casino software, but Microgaming (1994) is a little older. Israeli entrerpeneur Teddy Sagi founded Playtech in the 1990s, but the company now is traded on the London Stock Exchange. 

Bet365 Casino Games

Playtech supplies hundreds of online casino games, including online slots, table games, specialty games, and video poker. Bet365 supports gaming on a desktop computer or a mobile device. Players can download the full software package or play instant-play games in the web browser. Android and iOS casino apps are available. Let's take a look at each category.

Mobile

With that said, providing a fantastic internet casino experience for desktop users is not enough anymore -- nowadays, you need high-quality casino software for mobile devices. As I've mentioned throughout this site, I rarely use a desktop to play online gambling games anymore -- taking my iPad anywhere I want is the way to go. GeoComply assures players are inside the state of New Jersey, while you can get the Android and Apple iOS apps with a single click on the website. The apps allow faster loading times and instant access to dozens of top titles. Mobile play counts towards all promotions. 

The Bet365 mobile casino is one of the finest in the industry and includes over 60 games. For your information, I used iPad Air and iPhone 8s to test the site, so if you have newer versions of iPad or iPhone or both, you can only expect an improved experience if possible.

I tested Bet365's mobile casino on my iPhone 4s. As usual when it comes to real-money casino games, it's an in-browser casino (you don't download it, you play it on your browser). You'll be eligible for all the same promotions and bonuses as those who play on desktop computers, so the only change is the mobile interface.

How to Download Bet365 Casino App

You get this screen when opening www.bet365.com on your iPhone. You're asked to pick a language, or you can go directly go to some sports betting sections of the site by scrolling the page. Either way, I clicked "English."

  1. The next screen gives you several sports betting categories to choose. As you can see, sports betting gets way more exposure than other forms of gambling at Bet365.
  2. Even though at first sight it may seem that Bet365 is just a sportsbook, you can find sections for casino and poker games plus financials betting by scrolling down the page.
  3. After having clicked "Casino," you'll be taken to a list of casino games. What you'll see first is the category of "Featured" games which includes a mix of Bet365's most popular table games and slot machines.
  4. You'll be asked to log-in after clicking a casino game. Even though Bet365 Casino is a great brand and a great casino, the fact that you not only have to register but to deposit money before getting to try their games is annoying, and quite frankly I see many of their customers going to other casinos just because of that.

That's what Bet365 Casino looks like on your iPhone. I assume the Bet365 Casino for Android will look much the same -- it's quite easy to use, although, as mentioned, the fact that you have to register AND deposit before getting to try the games is a negative factor, and I would prefer if casino games got as much exposure on the interface as sports betting. I'm sure sports bettors enjoy it this way, though.

Best Casino Software in the World

Bet365 Casino is a combination of software from Playtech, Microgaming, Betsoft, and others. They truly have the best of all worlds and it shows: the biggest progressive jackpots online (many jackpots often reaching millions of dollars), the most popular theme-slots such as Deal or No Deal, The Sopranos and lots of Marvel slots like The Avengers, X-Men and Iron Man 2.

The software at Bet365 is best in the world. The list of gaming developers is huge: Playtech, Microgaming, NetEnt, Boss Media, Electracade, Bally, WMS (Williams Interactive), and IGT WagerWorks are just a few of the providers. Excellent B2B game designers like Ash Gaming, Play’n GO, Thunderkick, NextGen Gaming, and Virtue Fusion feature on Bet365 Casino.

Microgaming's in-house design studios like Quickspin and Rabcat also have games on Bet365. The full list includes Cryptologic (WagerLogic), Endemol Games, 2 By 2 Gaming, Genesis Gaming, Betsoft, GTS, Realistic Games, NeoGames, Finsoft, Blueprint Gaming, Odobo, Leander Games, JPM Interactive, Eyecon, Big Time Gaming.

Helpful, Easily Accessible Customer Support

Bet365 has a thorough Frequently Asked Questions section, and should you fail to find your answer there, you have three ways of contacting their customer support: live chat, phone (toll-free) and e-mail. Live chat is available with minimal waiting times and I've gotten answers to all of my e-mails within 30 minutes. I have never tried their phone support but I see no reason to believe anything other than that it's of the highest quality.
