Positives


Their Casino is one of the best Playtech Casinos around. Their Games casino offers a superb mix of slot, instant and arcade gambling options. Bet365 Vegas is also a NetEnt shop so there really is loads on offer. Customer service and bonuses for new depositors and regular players are amongst the best around

Negatives


If this was your only casino you would miss out on some great games not available here from some smaller providers. If your focus is not on slots you might prefer Microgaming or IGT’s interfaces. Some players may not like having separate “wallets” for the two different casinos. Not everyone will love the brand and image of Bet365.


Bottom Line

Bet365 gives the gambler almost everything they could possibly want excellent customer service and a superb selection of gaming options and bonuses.

Bet365 is one of my all time favourite casinos and indeed gambling sites in general.  They have been around a long time and whilst other sports books and casinos may be slightly better known by European players they are definitely one of the very best sites around.

Their sports betting has been my go-to site for any betting that I want to do for over a decade and this is as a result of generally offering some of the best odds around combined with an excellent easy to use interface.  They are a site that offers a wide range of gambling options and they have a simple wallet system enabling you to transfer money between accounts.  They also offer poker through the i-poker network which is a reasonably good poker platform to use favoured my many sports betting sites.

When it comes to customer service they offer live chat and have an excellent reputation for top quality customer service and fair application of their bonus and other terms.  They are also a great site through which to play Playtech and IGT progressive jackpots as unlike many other casinos they will pay the winnings promptly in one lump sum should you be fortunate enough to win one.  They are accredited with eGOGRA which offers you extra safety and security.

In effect Bet 365 does not offer one casino, they offer two.  This is a trend that seems quite common with sites that are best known for their sportsbook side.  They offer “Casino” which is a Playtech casino that is available in download and no-download versions and they also have a “Games” casino which is a no-download paradise of a wide selection of some of the very best that different software platforms have to offer.  Unlike Paddy Power Casino these two casinos use different “wallets” so you need to transfer money between wallets or make a fresh deposit if you want to jump between the Playtech Casino and the Games casino.  If you are not clearing playthrough requirements of a deposit or transfer bonus this is very easy to do and Bet365 are generous enough to offer players great bonuses for both of their casinos.

Their bonuses require to be “claimed” but they make it easy to know what bonuses you are entitled to and you can use a transfer between gaming accounts to count as a deposit.  As well as generally offering one of the better sign up bonuses around they offer great on-going bonuses that reward the regular player.  Claimable bonuses are really the way forward and I hope the days of having bonuses “dumped” on you will soon be a thing of the past.  Bonuses always come with strings attached and whilst Bet365 bonuses are very fair there are times when many people will prefer the freedom to transfer money between or out of their Bet 365 accounts than play in accordance to bonus requirements.  The deposit bonuses are currently 150% match bonus with a 20 times deposit and bonus playthrough requirement and fair restrictions.  For the Playtech casino this is one of the best around from a respectable casino and it is also very decent for their mixed software platform “Games”.

With a comprehensive range of Playtech games and with a great range of Progressive Jackpots which they will actually pay out in one lump sum combined with excellent customer service Bet365 is an ideal Playtech casino to use.  Playtech software is not perhaps as advanced as Microgaming software or amazingly innovative but their software is really a joy to use and everything from slots to video poker and table games are excellently created with fantastic interfaces and technical wizardry.  Many of their slot games draw inspiration from comics, TV games and popular films which many slot players will love.  If you have not checked out their slot games then you really should as you may find them to be amongst your favourites.  Whether you are a Blackjack, a roulette or a video poker fan you get a great deal of choice and variety with the Playtech platform and you will be well catered for.  Whilst their payout rates for their games are not perhaps quite as high as Microgaming tend to offer they still offer excellent value.

The “Games” casino is great fun and well worth your time.  It has a good breadth of offering in table games with brag, mini mah-jong and casino dice amongst other games on offer as well as the more common table games.  It does not have the same depth of variations that other casinos offer but you can always hop over to the Casino section if this is what you want.  Some of the software platforms they feature include IGT, Finsoft, Realistic Games and Microgaming.  They feature a huge range of games that includes some of the best that you will find online and there are a huge amount of arcade/fun offerings including Top Trump games all of which offer a great deal of variety and entertainment.  Sometimes choosing a slot game is a bit hit and miss, for every great game you find you see lots of games that feel very similar or just fail to excite but despite the huge range on offer the games that are in Bet 365 Games consistently offer you a varied and fantastic experience.

Bet365 does not have the charisma or personality perhaps in its image and branding that Mr Green Casino or Paddy Power Casino offer but this is a matter of taste and I very much enjoy what I see as the understated nature of the Bet365 experience but this is something you will need to check out for yourself.

Overall Bet365 Casino is a great place to play on line with an excellent reputation and fantastic support.  It is one of the very best sites to use the Playtech software and they also feature an outstanding mixed software casino so you will always have a huge amount of variety and great games to play.
