When I first heard the news that Bet365 plans to spread its operation to the USA, I was very pleased to know that I will finally be able to place a bet at one of the world’s best gambling operators.
However, that moment is still a bit away since the website is not live yet. That’s why I want to give you some tips on what to expect when Bet365 does go live for the American market, or to be specific, for people located in New Jersey using this special bonus code.
Many Sports and Markets Available
Even before Bet365 for the US market goes live, one thing is certain – there will be plenty of different sports and markets to bet on. When it comes to sports, you can expect the most popular sports across the globe and in the USA to be included, like soccer, football, basketball, baseball, tennis, ice hockey, boxing, MMA, golf, rugby, cricket, horse racing, etc.
However, what surprised me a little bit when I first visited Bet365 was the fact that it also included eSports in the offer. So, if you are a fan of eSports, you can make some money off them as well.
In addition to various sports, you can also bet on many markets. Some events have over a hundred different options you can bet on, especially soccer. However, I expect popular American sports to include as many markets as possible as well, particularly major leagues like NFL, NBA and MLB.
Competitive Odds & Limits
Bet365 is well-known for competitive odds and I fully expect them to maintain that reputation in the United States as well. After all, they are one of the biggest operators in the world, so they can offer a bit better odds than the competition.
I also expect the limits on winnings, withdrawals and deposits to be similar to what they are in other countries. That means that the minimum bet should be set at $0.25, while maximum daily winnings should differ based on the sport and market, just like in other countries. You can find out more about maximum daily winnings here.
When it comes to the minimum deposit, it should vary depending on your payment method. However, you can expect the minimum deposit to be in the range of $5-20.
Various Additional Features
Bet365 has a rich assortment of features to make your betting experience better. For example, they have statistics for all events. If you are a stats buff like me, this is something that you can enjoy and gather all important information before you place a bet without having to visit other websites for it.
In other countries you can also play numerous casino games in addition to sports betting. It remains to be seen whether this is going to be possible in the USA as well, although there’s no reason not to be since online gambling is legal in New Jersey.
Another feature I often use, or should I say rely on, is the cash-out feature. This is something that most bookies today offer, which is not a surprise since it is a very popular feature amongst punters. Cash-out allows you to take the money before all your bets are finished, which is a great way to get out of a losing bet and win at least something.
Numerous Live Betting Options and Live Streaming
Although I rarely engage in live betting, I am familiar with all the options offered on many websites. Compared to them, Bet365 is right at the top when it comes to different markets, live statistics and other features that make it stand out. In fact, you can find probably the same number of betting options for live matches as you can find beforehand.
In addition to this, you can also watch many matches on live streams. This is available for different sports, like soccer, tennis, basketball but I expect you will also get the chance to watch American sports and leagues like NFL, NHL or MLB.
Well-Developed Mobile App
More and more punters use mobile apps exclusively to place their bets and with that in mind, Bet365 has developed a solid app for both Android and iOS. You can download the iOS app on the App Store but if you want to download the Android app, you have to do it directly on the Bet365 because the app is not available in the Google Store.
The app is designed with functionality in mind, although it is also impressive in the looks department. However, I may be biased here because I absolutely adore the famous green background that is a major part of the Bet365 brand.
Of course, I also like the fact that the app is easy to navigate. You can place a bet in a matter of seconds, especially if you are looking for live games since they are only one click away at all times.
In addition to this, the app offers all the sports and leagues that you can find on the website, as well as the same markets. And let’s not forget the fact that you can also watch live streams on the app, at least in other countries.
Since Bet365 is one of the biggest names in the sports betting industry today, its expansion to the American market shouldn’t be much different than what we already see in other countries. After all, you don’t change the winning formula for no reason.
That being said, I also have to add that I personally favor Bet365 over all other bookies. One reason for this is the abundance of different stats available on their website, which is something that I like to use to get informed before I place my bet.
Of course, that is only the tip of the iceberg since Bet365 also has very competitive odds, a plethora of sports and markets you can bet on, great live betting options and, most importantly, live streaming both on the website and on the app.
