Bet365 Australia History
Bet365 are renowned as the biggest bookmaker on the planet and have been on Australian shores for several years now.
Their main aim is to offer punters an unrivaled betting experience with a huge range of betting markets, with a particular focus on live in-play betting. Bet365 Australia is now a household name given their heavy offline advertising and we rate them highly.
Website Layout and Usability
First up we must admit that the Bet365 Australia website may not be everyone's cup of tea. It certainly takes a bit of getting used to for new customers.
Their website takes up the full width of the page and the entire menu is down the left-hand side, with very little across the top menu.
This can be a good thing and a bad thing. On a positive note, a full-width site enables more markets and odds to be displayed on a single screen, which means less time scrolling through the different markets and the odds.
On the other hand, navigating the site can be a little tricky. Bet365 Australia boasts a huge volume of markets, so finding what you want can sometimes be slow. However once you get used to it, it’s a really a good site.
Any upcoming sports or racing events are clearly listed on the front page, so you shouldn’t have to navigate too much to find the big events.
We must also give props to the intuitive betting slip, which is amongst the best we have seen.
Live In-Play Betting
Bet365 Australia has a large focus on their live in-play betting product, which they have spent a ton of money on to perfect.
To this day, if we want to bet on an event live in-play, Bet365 is the bookmaker of choice for us.
You can navigate to the in-play betting section of their website by clicking the button at the very top of their site. This will take you to a dedicated section just for in-play markets.
They have made it super easy, with all events segregated into their categories. Odds will update in real time and they even provide live scores for each match.
Best of all, they offer live streaming on a number of different sports from around the globe, so you can watch live events and bet at the same time from the comfort of one window.
Horse Racing Section
Bet365 has invested heavily in their horse racing section. They now have a section that includes detailed form guides and race comments. And we mean very detailed! They have left no stone unturned.
There are no shortage of racing products either. For years they have been home to 365 Best and 365 Tote.
365 Best guarantees you a win dividend that is equal to the highest of the three Australian Totes on all metro horse races. While 365 Tote guarantees you the best win dividend of the three Totes for all non-metro horse racing.
On top of that are products such as 365 Mid+ which gives you a 5% bonus on the middle Tote dividend for all Asian and NZ racing.
You will also find a raft of great products for greyhound and harness racing, as well as UK racing.
Products and Features
A recent addition to the Bet365 Australia service is a Visa Card. It is absolutely free of charge, and you will receive it within three days of submitting your application.
It allows you to withdraw winnings from your betting account to your card, letting you access funds from any ATM or to make EFTPOS purchases around Australia.
We find that it compliments the Bet365 Mobile App, as you can now bet on the go and then withdraw any winnings immediately from the ATM.
Form, Stats & Live Scores
Sports punters can bet have all the sports analysis tools they could ever need thanks to this product offering from Bet365 Australia.
You can get detailed form and stats for every major sport around the world, including live scores. So take the guess work out of betting and use this section to make an educated bet.
Soccer Multi Bet Offer
The Soccer Multi Bet Offer is a famous long-running promo with Bet365 Australia. You can earn up to 100% more on your soccer multi bets which extends across the A-League, through to all the major leagues in Europe.
You will increase your returns for every leg you add to your multi bet. For example, 3-legs will earn you 5% extra, 4-legs will earn you 10% extra, right up to 14-legs which will earn you a whopping 100% extra!
Bet365 Mobile App
Bet365 was the very first bookmaker in Australia to release a mobile betting app, and the other bookies have been playing catch up ever since.
On first looks, it is not hard to tell they have spent a ton of money on this thing, with an emphasis put on navigation and speed.
The latest update has seen push notifications included, which means you can choose to get alerted to all the latest offers, promotions and sport action whenever anything big happens.
As you would expect, they have tailor-made this app for a live in-play betting experience, as well as given punters the ability to stream live sports or listen to horse racing.
