Open account with Bet365 and start betting today
My advice? Grab this offer with both hands and open an account today before they come to their senses! The great thing is you can open the account today with no money … then have the bet when you’ve got the spare cash. If you open the account today you get 90 days to deposit cash and make the bets!
Hurry though! … as I write the £200 offer is planned to finish very soon.
Quite apart from the free bets this is a fantastic offer from Bet365. They may not be the biggest bookmaker in the world but Bet365 are definitely my favourite internet bookie and here’s why …
Each Way bets are allowed and you can double your stake
Unlike some bookmakers (Hills) Bet365 do not half your stake when betting each way. With Hills your maximum allowed bet is HALVED if you bet each way. Eg if the max bet is £100 and you bet ew you are not allowed £100 each way but just £50 each way. With Bet 365 if the maxmium win bet is £100 you can also have £100 each way. That’s the way it should be.
Bet Max Button
Bet365 have a button on their wesbite which allows you to immediately know what the maximum bet is allowed. Its very quick just one click and the stake is then filled in automatically for you. It means you can place a bet with two clicks and never have to type in a stake. Great tool when you are betting horses on which the odds are rapidly shortening! Ie most of our bets!
Slow to change prices
Bet365 don’t change their odds as fast as some other bookies and you can sometimes get a show price that has already gone with other internet bookmakers. That is a serious advantage!!
Bet365 BOG Bets
BOG stands for Best Odds Guaranteed and what it means is that if you take an early price and the SP is bigger your bet will be settled at SP.
Multiple bets allowed on same horse
This is unique to Bet365 and gets my vote as the most Punter Friendly Bookie on the internet. As mentioned above they have a Bet Max button which typically allows you to bet a horse to win a set amount (usually it’s £3,000 eg £600 on a 5/1 but increases to £5000 on some big handicaps) But now the horse shortens from 5/1 to 4/1. You are allowed an additional maximum bet! Bet365 are the only bookie who allow this and it shows they are gutsy. Other internet bookmakers accounts allow you one bet and then you can’t have more on. Good for you Bet365!
BET365 Special offers
In addition Bet365 Run regular special offers. These will only be useful occasionally if you’re betting Professionally but used judiciously you might be able to squeeze an extra £50 or £100 out of them each month! Treat these offers with care though because they are designed to get you betting in hard races or having hard-to-win multiple bets. My view is use them if you were intending having the bet anyway. But don’t try and have a bet just to fit the offer It’s not worth it and the like hood is you’d just be giving away some of your winnings. Having said that here’s a quick run down on the Bet365 offers at the time of writing.
Bet365 Feature Races 4/1 winner Offer
The nuts and bolts of this offer from Bet365 is that that when there is no live Channel 4 Racing they
will choose two of the (hardest!) races a day and nominate them “Bet365 Feature Races”
Then if you back a winner in the first Bet365 Feature race at odds of 4/1 or more they will give you a free bet of the same stake (up to a maximum of £50) on the next bet365 Feature Race.
There’s 3 “catches”
- Because the bets are only valid for a Bet365 Feature race you are betting in the hardest races of the day. Now that’s ok if you were already going to bet in that race but I don’t recommend having a bet in the race just to try and quailify for a free bet! Remember as Punters we can choose when we bet. Bookmakers have to offer bets in every race. That’s one of our advantages so use it wisely. If you didn’t have a genuine bet then don’t let them tempt you into one.
- The first bet has to win at 4/1 or more. In other words you’ll won’t be betting on a red hot favourite or “cert”. On average the winning probability of horses priced at 4/1 is around 18%. Hopefully your bets in these races will do better because you’ll only have the bet if you’ve got an edge? Good information/tip/form analysis? The probability is you’ll win less than half 50% of the time when you’re betting horses at 4/1 or biggers so these bets should be used sparingly.
- The free bet has to be in the next Bet365 Featured race. Easy to forget and what a shame if you do bet a 4/1 winner and then don’t claim the free bet!
Best Odds Guaranteed Example. An EXTRA £3,666.65 FREE!!!
Let me give you an example of how much money this might mean to you. One horse we bet was called Splashdown. I recommended a 16 point win at the early price of 9/4. I bet £100 a point so a 16 point bet is £1,600. Some of my Senior Traders do bet at this level but most clients bet maybe £5 – £20 a point until they build up their betting banks. Imagine you’ve built up to the £100 a point level and you had attempted to place this bet with Bet365. Actually their website is programmed to allow a maximum bet that wins up to £3,000 so the maxmium bet allowed with Bet365 at 9/4 would have been £1333.33. Ok let’s suppose you took it and had the rest elsewhere. When Splashdown won you’d have looked forward to collecting your £3,000 winnings from Bet365. But he drifted just before the off because a couple of other horses were gambled and went off at the staggering odds of 5/1!! (by the way this rarely happens, around 85% of all the horses we bet shorten in the betting) Under the rules of BOG (Best Odds Guaranteed) Bet365 settle this bet at 5/1 and not 9/4! Instead of winning £3,000 you win a magnificent £6,666,65, more than DOUBLING your winnings! An incredible £3,666,65 for FREE! In case you think that was a one off the same thing happened just 4 days later. On 26th September I advised a 20 point each way bet on Laddies Poker Two at the early odds of 7/2 (it was a 1/4 the odds a place race with 4 places). The SP was a full point bigger, 9/2! At my £100 per point that would be a two grand each way bet. Bet365 would allow you £1428.57 of that because it was a really competitive handicap and their max bet is raised to allow you to bet to win £5,000. So when Laddies Poker Two stormed home instead of collecting a juicy £5000 from Bet365 they kindly settled the bet at the SP of 9/2 and avalanched £11,418.57 into your account! A Full £1428.57 extra! I hope I’ve convinced you this Best Odds Guaranteed is a great idea. It’s totally win win for you as the Punter. Go for it! Open your account with Bet365 and make sure you benefit if the horse drifts!
Bet365 £200 Free Bets
Oops! I got so excited about the Best Odds Guaranteed deal I almost forgot to remind you of Bet365’s £200 Free bet offer. Along with Boylsesports it’s the most generous offer of any internet bookie. But I heard they could be reducing or even cancelling it (maybe they had their butt kicked too hard eh?) I wouldn’t be surprised if they withdraw it any day now because it’s hard to see how you can lose. Let’s face it you could open an account with them, deposit some money, take their free bet and only carry on betting if you win? Sounds like a perfect no -lose or win-win situation to me!
*Basically Bet365 match your first bet up to a maximum of £200. So obviously you want to make sure your free bet is £200 if possible. So I recommend you open the account now, deposit £200 as soon as you can (they even accept credit cards) and then wait for a good bet to have the whole £200 on. Let’s face it they’re going to give you afree bet equal to your first bet. So might as well make it a big one! It would be a crying shame to have an initial bet of a tenner and only get £10 free.
If you don’t fancy a horse strong enough to have £200 on then hold fire with your first bet until you do. But make sure you have the account already open because while it may only take a couple of minutes to complete the process (like all internet bookmakers you have to provide proof of id etc) you’d be kicking yourself if the horse you decide to bet on is collapsing in price while you’re waiting for the account to go live. Believe me it’s happened to me several times when I’ve opened up accounts for friends and it’s really annoying to have to take say 3/1 when you could have had say 5/1 a couple of minutes earlier!
The very best idea is to open the account now and then you have it ready for the day you want to have £200 on. There’s nothing worse than seeing a good price, deciding to have a bet … and then as you faff about opening the account, the odds shorten and it’s half the price 10 minutes later when you’re ready!
So open the account now and then when the day comes you’ll be able to shoot from the hip! Bet365 is the best bookmaker for Early Morning Odds because they start offering odds the night before!!! … however that means they tend to shorten theirs quite early … another reason why it’s good to “be prepared”
Bet365 £200 Free Bets
Ok so your first bet is £200 (or more) and you get the maximum Free £200.
