Whilst bet365 aren’t one of the oldest bookmakers in the world, they have quickly outperformed many of their rivals to now become one of the biggest. Whilst they are predominantly a UK based site, they have gone on to offer betting opportunities for a vast array of countries around the world, with one of the few exceptions being that of the US market.
One of the ways that the company has managed to become one of the largest bookmakers in the world is by offering a simply staggering array of sports to bet on. Few sports have been as popular as their golf section and it’s probably the number of tournaments and competitions around the world that they have covered in depth which has been the backbone of their success.
Bet365 allows you to take a 100% deposit bonus worth up to £/€200 when you register a new account. In terms of monetary value, this is actually one of the biggest you will be able to receive. The bonus works from anywhere between £/€10 and £/€200 and will be a match on the amount you first deposit. Once you have made your deposit bet365 will send you out a code via the email address you submitted of which you will need to enter on the bet365 website. If you didn’t receive an email then make sure you contact support before placing your first wager as after this the bonus will become void.
You will need to play through both your first deposit amount and your bonus amount 3 times prior to being able to withdraw. Any withdrawal made before this will void all bonus funds. Bet365 give you a more than generous 90 days in which to clear your bonus, giving you plenty of time to claim the full amount. Qualifying bets must be made at odds of 1.50 or greater.
Whilst bet365 don’t offer an awful lot of golf specific promotions, for some of the larger events it’s not uncommon for them to provide inflated odds for certain players or even extended each way pay-outs.
Golf Betting At Bet365
Their golf section is pretty much as comprehensive as you are going to see in the industry with every event from both the European Tour and the PGA Tour covered. On top of that, some of the more prestigious events from around the world including the LPGA and Asian Tour are thrown in for good measure.
Not only are a wide range of tournaments offered but you can also bet on a wide range of markets away from the outright winner market, which is not something that a lot of bookmakers actually cover. Some of the more popular are 72 hole group betting, 72 hole match betting, 1st round leader, top American, top Rest of the World, top European, top 5 finish, top 10 finish and 18 hole matchups. In all honesty, this is probably as big a set of markets as you are going to see across the industry.
One thing we will mention, in terms of markets at least, is that the smaller tours won’t carry as much weight in terms of betting depth as the two main tours (PGA and European). That being said, they do offer a number of additional markets with each, which is again more than the majority of bookmakers out there.
Price wise, bet365 are right up there once again and will likely be within the top 5 for pretty much most markets. Golf betting can be pretty volatile and as the majority of players carry pretty hefty pricing, it’s always going to be beneficial to shop around. We have found though that bet365 are never far away in terms of both pricing and value.
A big improvement over the last 12 months has been that of the bet365 mobile app. It started its life as a pretty buggy and poorly designed app, but now has seen many updates resulting in it being one of the best around. In terms of golf you can pick up all the markets that you find from their web page along with a stunning array of other sports to bet on as well.
If you find that you often like to dabble in other gambling pastimes such as casino, bingo, poker, games and financial betting, then bet365 are again one of the best around for each.
