Bet365 Sportsbook Review: All You Need to Know

Take a look at what the Bet365 sportsbook has in store for New Jersey residents right now.

My Bet365 Review: Sports and markets available


I wouldn’t say that Bet365 has an excessive number of sports or markets on the platform, however, I would say that they are displaying some very positive signs. In terms of the most popular sports available right now, Bet365 offers football, soccer, tennis, and boxing. Interestingly, they do not have markets for baseball, hockey, or any kind of college events, which is surprising.

Given that Bet365 is still fairly new to the New Jersey market, I am quite confident in saying that they will no doubt add sports like hockey and baseball to the offering quite soon. When you look into the markets that they do have for popular sports, they are particularly extensive. For example, even a standard soccer game will pull in more than 100 different betting markets, giving members plenty of options.

Odds & Limits

Bet365 is typically very competitive for its odds, especially for the more popular sports listed in the sportsbook. You will generally find that odds for major soccer games and American football games are slightly higher than what you can find elsewhere, which shows that Bet365 provides value for their members. The maximum amount that you can win when betting on these popular sports is into the six-figure region, which is also quite high when compared to other platforms.


What are the main types of sports bets I can make with Bet365?

There are several different sports bets you can make on this site, such as moneyline, tournament outright, futures, spread, and over/under.

How good is the customer support team?

The customer support team is very efficient with Bet365, and you may contact them via email or live chat, both of which are available on the desktop and mobile app.

How do I actually initiate a live stream?

To initiate a live stream, you simply need to click the play button which can be seen next to an event, and after clicking this, the live stream window will immediately open.

What are the requirements to live stream games?

Providing that you have money in your Bet365 account or that you have made a bet within the last 24-hours, you will be able to live stream games.

Does Bet365 have a good range of payment options?

Bet365 has a bunch of payment methods you can use such as PayPal, Skrill, Visa, Maestro, and MasterCard.

How can I see if I can cash out a bet?

You can see what bets you currently have on the go by clicking the ‘my bets’ link, and it is here where you will see if you can cash out a bet.

What are the requirements for me to open up an account with Bet365?

As long as you are 21 years of age and a resident of New Jersey, you are eligible to open an account with Bet365.

What is the minimum wager I can place for a sports bet?

If you’re making a pre-match wager the minimum is $1, but if you are making an in-play wager, this minimum drops to 10 cents.

User Experience

My overall experience with the Bet365 sportsbook was very good. I found that the odds were competitive on the whole, it was easy to find what markets I wanted to bet on, and I loved that they have put everything together into a top-quality mobile app.

In-play betting

How to place in-play bets

When you are ready to place an in-play sports bet, you can do so through navigating to the section labeled as ‘live in-play’. Within this section, Bet365 will always display what sports are currently on the go, as well as what markets you can bet on. To make a bet in this section all you need to do is click the event you would like to wager on, enter your stake, and place your bet.

Live streaming

Bet365 is one of the few sites in New Jersey that supports live streaming for a selection of sports that they have. This is not yet available for every single event that they cover, but you can already stream numerous basketball, tennis, and soccer events on this site. The live streams are generally of very good quality, and you can even stream games from the mobile app.

Providing that you have money in your Bet365 account or that you have made a bet within the last 24-hours, you will be able to live stream games. 

Mobile App

The Bet365 mobile app is one of the best features of the entire site, at least from a usability perspective. The app is super simple to use, and you can clearly see different sections due to various quick links, and thanks to Bet365 using the green, yellow, and white color scheme, the markets are even easier to spot. The app is incredibly responsive, and you can place sports bets within seconds.

  • Streaming for many sports
  • Great odds for sports like basketball, soccer, and American football

My Bet365 Review – undoubtedly one to try

There are many positive factors to the Bet365 sportsbook in New Jersey. With live betting, live streaming on select sports, quality odds, and cash out options, Bet365 is showing many qualities that could propel them into a market leader position. It’s also a credit to their commitment that they have developed a top-quality mobile app as well, with all of the features that I have just mentioned fully supported on the app.

To address the negative aspects, I found it very surprising that Bet365 has chosen to implement sports like rugby and darts before implementing markets for baseball and hockey. I’m sure that Bet365 has its reasons for doing this, but I also feel that some sports bettors will look elsewhere given the lack of these markets right now.
