Since their launch in Australia, Bet365 has attracted interest from sports fans thanks to some bold TV campaigning and some noteworthy bonus offers for existing members. Eligible Australian residents are able to receive a sign up bonus, more information on this can be found by visiting Bet365. There are many reasons why having a Bet365 account is beneficial for an Australian customer, even though our rating for the betting agency is slightly lower; this is due to the high value of the free bets offered by most other Australian betting agencies in comparison.

Bet365 review

Bet365 have quickly grown to become one of the world's largest online bookmakers. In Australia, the brand has gained market share thanks to some aggressive advertising and off the back of its parent corporation's fine reputation. Bet365 markets itself as the World's favourite online betting company and the numbers speak for themselves.

Eligible Australian residents can benefit from a new account bonus, although it's best to visit the Bet365 website for more information on the offer, as it varies by state. In recent times, Bet365 has boosted its offering of betting promotions to existing customers, to bring them more in line with Australia's leading bookmakers. Another area where Bet365 provides members value is through their unique suite of horse racing betting products. They offer some products like 'Fixed Win Guarantee', that are not available anywhere else.

Live streaming is one another area where Bet365 separates itself from the pack. They provide coverage of events like the French Open tennis to users that have placed a bet within the past 24 hours or have a current funded account (Geographic restrictions may also apply). Under Australian law, we are required to inform you that Live Streaming on Bet365 is exempt from Parts 3 and 4 of the Broadcasting Services (Online Content Service Provider Rules) 2018. Bet365's products and betting platform, combined with their worldwide popularity is attracting, and satisfying, Australian customers.

Betting products & promotions

Bet365 promotions

Bet365 offer a number of promotions and bonuses to their existing customers. We feature their horse racing promotions below, but they also provide eligible members with betting offers on the AFL and NRL. One past promotion they offered members was on the Big Bash League during 2016 / 17 cricket season. The promotion proved very popular.

Betting on Australian horse racing

Bet365 is a good option for horse racing enthusiasts. They offer a suite of different racing products and long-running promotions that make wagering on horses appealing. In truth, their range of products is better than a popular bookmaker like Sportsbet. We profile each of these products below. Perhaps the only chink in their racing armour is that unlike Palmerbet, they don't offer Best of the Best.

The world's favourite...

Bet365 tout themselves as the 'world's favourite online sports betting company', and they have the membership numbers to back up this proclamation. Through their horse racing products and more regular betting promotions for existing customers, their appeal to Australian sports fans is more and more compelling by the day. Though their sign up bonus is not anywhere near as competitive as that offered by Sportsbet, all other aspects of their service offering a first-rate.
