    They are a recreational book that caters to losing players. Its the best business model but sucks for Pro's which i dont even call myself. Just have a big bankroll and it scares them .

    I signed up recently. Had some issues with Location (I am in a legal state) and never got any communication from 365. No email nothing. I would suggest you recommend to them to send out a welcome email after a player signs up. I decided against playing there for now. GL.

    Let's see.

    My BetWTTS account was sold to Bowman's. Bowman's was acquired by Bet365 in late 2006.

    By may 2007 Bet365 had limited me to $10 wagers.

    Have not been back since.

    Also were reluctant to release earned bonus, according to my notes.

    Would not recommend them at all.

    I think it's the best book in the world (speaking of the international site, not the US one) ... until you get limited. Quick payouts, you can bet on anything, great streaming, great futures. So I would recommend anyone sign up and try it, and then if they get limited, move on. But feature wise or for any recreational player, it is fantastic. (Again, don't know the differences with the US site since I don't live in the US).

    1) Bonus
    2) Great value on tennis favorites and best selection of minor ITF tournaments
    3) Could offer 10 or 15 cent baseball lines
    4) App does not crash, limits are higher for tennis than most other sportsbooks that I use.

    Did a $200 wager about a month ago on the Florida Panthers to win the Eastern Conference at +450. Cashout option as of today sits at $376.20 which seems lite to me. I was thinking the cashout feature should offer at least half of the total winnings but then again I'm not sure the logic behind this number.

    Good enough book till you get limited. think they have taken off their 100 sign up bonus though which was the best in the market.

    Website really looks old though, looks like an old telex machine if anyone remembers those lol

    Are any of you guys talking about being limited to nothing had that happen in the last 5 years?

    I think most of you are still talking about 10 years ago even.


    Bet365 is now days one of the slowest to limit regular bettors, winners or not.

    If you have read the S&I forum daily for the last decade or so like I have had to you would definitely agree with me as you could see when it stopped happening. In about 2017 I would guess.


    Those people who can't use Bet365 anymore are pretty much the only people that ever complain about them on the forum.

    That's my main negative with them too.

    I find the cashout offers are lowball too often. Not that I really want to use them very often.

    Probably helpful to me to stop me thinking about selling the value from my bets.

    Ive had several ontario accounts banned. Not limited they dont want my play. maybe 1.5 years ago around then.

    starts with review of bets. Then Account gets suspended. Then you get the advantageous player email. That tells u the bad news.

    The "several" might be a clue why?

    There was a time when they deserved the name Bet $3.65. I complained to them about it for players quite a few times.

    But that sort of "player management" has genuinely stopped a long time ago.

    Among the big UK brands they are known to be decently risk tolerant compared to the other big names over there.

    Are you saying if I deposited again now I would find my limits have been raised to reasonable limits Optional?

    I can't speak for your personal account situation. But it might be worth checking if it has changed. Might even be worth emailing and asking for a review if it has not.

    I had a limited account there but after years of inactivity I realized that they deleted all my data, so I was able to create a new account last year.

    I won like 10K usd in this new account (99% live-betting) before they closed it. First they limited me, my max. bet in a live NBA game, for example, was like $50. Then they closed it after I won a little more (you can re-bet after line changes).

    Same Bet365 as always, IMO.

    1)welcome bonus and always loved using their site for the fastest live odds/plays especially on obscure tennis/soccer markets

    2)betting the up early options..early payout for nhl ml bets up 3, up 5 for mlb etc

    3)the app is very glitchy. I constantly have to close and reopen, sometimes 3 or 4 times to get it work. Sometimes it cant determine my location

    4)when the app works its the best. Best markets. Live streams work well. Every so often I get a $25 or $40 bonus bet for the hell of it

    The biggest problem I have is that the website will not recognize my password. No issue on the app but every time I use the website I have to reset the password. Then half the time it has trouble with the location often telling me I am too close to the state line even though I am an hour away from the closest border.

    So I am stuck using my phone to wager. The app also has location issues at times.

    Aside from the technical issues everything is good.

    Interesting idea. I did check to see if my account was still active, and had to reset the password. I guess I should make a small deposit and see how it goes. How much does one need to deposit if limits are $1?

    no they were all real accounts fully verified. The Backend spots the betting patterns easily.

    Maybe "ontario" book is different on how they deal with players dont know

    After the Panthers win last evening, the cashout option has now risen to $546,30 for the $200 stake at +450 odds. So a little better than previous but now basically at the midway point of the total $1100 payout.

    I would love to see a wealthy player or group take some of these chickenshit books to task legally. Post your limits and treat everyone as such. States and countries should have rules that are fair to everyone in the public.

    The funny thing is that in NC a large part of the debate to legalize sports betting was that not everyone loses. The idea that some people could do it well enough to make a living was being advanced by the sportsbook themselves. Of course we know what will happen. So far aside from my initial account closure from B365 everything has been good. For anyone that didn't see my post B365 closed my account before I placed the first wager. After telling me that the decision was not reversible they did in fact open my account back up after some protest. It will be interesting to see how the regulators in NC will deal with the limits and account closures relative to other states.

    well I started a thread not too long ago on this sub-forum on BET365. it's the one and only offshore book that I'm allowed to play with since moving over to Cyprus two years ago. and the results so far have been very good and positive to say the least! and to answer Andy's questions, are all "yes". they've paid me almost instantly every time I've won and cashed out with no fees or charges whatsoever! direct debit right to my bank account and it usually posts just a few hours after making my initial withdrawal request! just like a sore dick, you can't beat it. I can literally deposit and withdraw as often as I like with no limitations on either one! so far, so good. A+ book. which begs the question...(not sure if this issue has been addressed or not). what's the difference between the international version of BET365 (the one I'm currently using) and the USA version? are most the complaints about quick limitations, etc. coming from US customers/players?

    1) What factor(s) led you to sign up at bet365? Did these live up to your expectations?
    Sign-up Bonus and was looking for a faster sports betting app than Betmgm.

    2) What features would you recommend to fellow players?
    Golf odds are good, same game parlays are ok, best boosts are awesome.

    3) What features do you feel could be improved?
    Payouts and Deposits, better odds.

    4) Overall, how would you rate your experience playing there? Is there anything that stands out vs other betting apps?
    It's really good, better than Betmgm.

    My main book.
    Great overall.
    Love the early payouts.

    Used to have problems with "location" error but now mostly good

    Lot of free streaming of sports.

    Been playing over a decade.
    Usually the best options of bets available.
