Bet365 is one of the biggest online betting sites on the planet. They are based in the UK, but having become a huge player in that market they are turning their attention to Canada as the sports betting market is taking off over here. Bet365 is a reputable and trustworthy site that as a Canadian you have probably heard about due to their aggressive marketing in trying to gain market share in Canada. It’s really a battle right now between Bet365 and Bodog, with Sports Interaction also in the mix while not having the same marketing budget as the other two bookies.
In my opinion Bet365 is the best overall sportsbook of the ones I promote here at my site. They have the easiest to clear sign up bonus, by far the best live betting option and the biggest selection of sports to bet on. If you had to sign up at just one betting site I would suggest Bet365 (although it is advantageous to sign up with more than one sportsbook).
I was at an Argonauts game last year and every fan in attendance received a Bet365 selection sheet where you could pick props on the game. If you got them all right you would be entered into a draw to receive a prize. This aggressive marketing in Canada shows me that Bet365 is serious about building their brand on this side of the pond.
Sign Up Bonus
Open an account with bet365 today and bet on a huge range of markets with the world’s favourite online sports betting company.
*I’m unable to elaborate too much on the bonus because Bet365 prefers that you visit their site to see the most accurate and up to date information regarding their bonus offerings.
**You must be 18+ to join Bet365 and terms and conditions apply to this bonus. The bonus details could change at any time in the future, so be sure to confirm them at the Bet365 website.
***When signing up for your Bet365 account you should leave the Bet365 bonus/referrer code field empty in order to remain tracked to Sports Betting Canadian and receive the best bonus possible.
Canadian Sports Coverage
Bet365 is one of the biggest betting sites in the world so their sports coverage is second to non in the sports betting industry. And yes this does of course include all the sports that are popular among Canadian bettors. There are 20+ bets available on every NHL game; AHL games get 13+ lines and the other big Canadian sports are all covered supremely well.
On top of the Canadian content Bet365 literally covers everything in the world of sports. One look at their sportsbook and you will see that if a sporting event is taking place you can bet on it at Bet365. A great example of just how many betting lines Bet365 offers is that they even accept bets on League of Legends matches!
In my opinion, Bet365 is hands down the best live betting sportsbook online. They offer live betting on literally almost every event that they take pre game bets on. Bet365 also has live streaming video on their website so a good chunk of the events are broadcast right at Bet365.com with the live betting options available beside the stream. They really have got live betting down to an art form at Bet365 and they are committed to continuing to stay ahead of the curve with all sports betting technologies.
As expected, Bet365 also has a very strong mobile betting software. This is crucial because mobile betting is the easiest way to place live bets. You will notice that the live betting options are featured prominently on Bet365’s mobile betting platform.
It is very easy to deposit and cash out at Bet365. First of all their Visa and MasterCard acceptance rate is very high (from my experience). That said, they no longer accept credit cards, so you would have to use a Visa or MastCard debit card in order to deposit.
On top of this they also accept a bunch of other deposit methods. Here are a few categorized by the type of deposit.
***These were the deposit options the last time I checked the site. They can change at any time.
- Deposits directly from your bank account: iDebit, InstaDebit or Wire Transfer.
- Deposits using a prepaid voucher: paysafecard.
- Deposits from a third party ewallet: Entropay.
When cashing out Bet365 will automatically try to withdraw your funds via the method that you deposited. For example, if you deposited through your Visa card, Bet365 will withdraw your funds as a credit to your card. To change your cash out method you will have to contact Bet365 customer support.
You don’t get to be the biggest online betting site in the world without treating your customers right. I have had to contact Bet365 customer support a few times to change my withdrawal details and have only had positive results. The customer service people are given the power to truly help the customers rather than just give set answers like you see at some betting sites.
You can contact Bet365 support via 24 hour live chat (this is what I suggest), 24/7 toll free telephone, email, web message or even mail. Bet365 makes themselves very accessible to the customer and no question or concern is too small.
