Our Verdict – 5 stars (Top-rated)

We love bet365.  We love our winnings hitting our bet365 betting account within 24 hours of requesting a withdrawal, we love all the markets they cover, we love the live pictures of so many sporting events, we love betting on Australian horse racing and into Tote pools around the world.  And… we really love their easy to use web and mobile interface.

But we have not given them a perfect score as a result of them only accepting relatively small bets on obscure sports and obscure markets on better known sports.  And, while so many sports betting markets ‘within markets’ are on offer, there are still plenty of betting opportunities that are missing, ‘winning distances’ on horse racing for example.  

It is also disappointing bet365’s ‘cash out’ clearly offers poor value, hence the half a star we have deducted them from the otherwise perfect 5-star rating.
