As far as welcome bonuses and regular promotions go, Bet365 is one of the more generous bookies out there. While a lot of other major bookmakers currently offer ₱200 or ₱500 worth of free bets, Bet365 online has up to €100 or currency equivalent in bet credits waiting for new customers. That’s around ₱6,000. Simply sign up, claim the Sports Bonus on the registration form, and then make your first deposit. Bet365 will 100% match your deposit up to €100 or currency equivalent.
For existing customers in the Philippines, Bet365 has something for you too. However, before you sign up for the welcome bonus or participate in a promotion, make sure to read the terms and conditions of each offer. That’s where you will find those key details such as Apple Pay, Google Pay, Paysafecard, prepaid card, and debit card deposits do not qualify for the welcome bonus.
The odds offered at Bet365 Sportsbook were very competitive at the time of the review. Odds margins for mainstream football events hovered around the 5% mark. It’s the same with other major sports including basketball and rugby. We enjoyed margins well below 5% on tennis and cricket betting.
Even the in-play margins for these sports are often below 5%. In terms of value, the odds are a great deal. This is one of the reasons why experienced punters are attracted to this sportsbook.
On the flip side, odds margins for smaller market competitions like bowls and Gaelic games can be a little steep. To be fair, that is pretty standard no matter where you bet. Taking advantage of enhanced odds and odds boost promotions will more than make up for that.
Overall betting margin:
Our experience with the app was a positive one. It only took less than two minutes to download the Bet365 APK file and get the app up and running. Things are where you would expect them to be and the features like live-streaming, stats, and live chat are a cinch to use. With that said, the app for Bet365 is not universally loved, as is shown by its 3.1/5 rating at the App Store and a low 2.8/5 rating at Google Play. Our reviewers didn’t encounter any issues while engaged in the Bet365 mobile review, but many users claim to have experienced lag, crashing, and other minor problems.
Whether you are using your desktop computer, mobile browser, or the Bet365 app, you’ll find that navigating the Bet365 is a piece of cake. Scroll through the main body of the sportsbook lobby to find an assortment of in-play betting options and upcoming events. You can select a particular league and matchup by clicking on the relevant sport in the alphabetically ordered sports menu. You could also streamline the process by using the search function.

When you find the wager you want to make, simply click on it and the bet slip will appear. Enter the stake amount, submit the bet, and then kick back and watch the match using Bet365’s live-streaming feature.
Filipino punters have never had as many wagering options as they do now at Bet365. A single game presents bettors with dozens of pre-match betting options and even more live wagering opportunities. Many mainstream sports such as EPL can generate over 200 pre-match options. While betting on sides and totals remain as popular as ever, a lot of football bettors like wagering on:
- Double Chance
- Correct Score
- Both Teams to Score
- Asian Handicap/Alternative Asian Handicap
- Winning Margin
- First/Last Team to Score
You can use Bet365’s Bet Builder feature to make same-game accumulators. As you may know, a lot of other bookmakers prohibit punters from creating same-game accumulators. Click on Bet Builder and add up to 12 same-game selections.
Bet365 Types of Bets:
There are several things that immediately point to Bet365 being not just credible, but respected by both the industry and Bet365’s customers. First, Bet365 launched online over 20 years ago, making it one of the longest established sportsbooks. You can’t survive and thrive that long in such a highly competitive industry unless you’re making all the right moves.
Having licences in multiple jurisdictions such as the United Kingdom and Malta speaks volumes about Bet365’s credibility. While displaying eCOGRA certification in the live casino might not mean a lot to sports bettors, it further enhances the operator’s excellent reputation.
Poring through recent comments at various sites reveals that customers are generally pleased with Bet365. You’ll find the inevitable complaints about delayed payouts, cancelled bets, and issues related to bonuses. On the flip side, you’ll see many comments stating just the opposite. We will trust in our experience which was positive. For those living in the Philippines, you can be sure that Bet365 is absolutely credible.
While Bet365 supports a variety of payment options, they don’t give you as many as some other major bookmakers do. The most common methods used by Filipino customers are debit cards and eWallets. Please note that even though Bet365 supports PayPal, Filipinos may not avail themselves of that service.
To make a deposit, you can log in and head to the banking section where you can select the “Deposit” option. You can now choose a payment option. You can deposit using:
- Visa Electron
- Bank Transfer
Once you choose your payment provider, you can enter the required information and key in the amount you wish to deposit. The transaction will complete immediately and the funds will instantly appear in your Bet365 account. Don’t forget to claim any available Bet365 bonuses.
Before we delve into the withdrawals, you should know that you must verify your age, identity, and place of residence before you can make a withdrawal. This is standard practice and required by law. Verification is a fast and easy process that only needs to be completed once.
Once verified, you can withdraw funds by logging in and going to the banking section. Select the “Withdraw” option and choose your payment provider. Enter the amount you want to cash out and submit the transaction. Bet365 reserves the right to pay you out in the same manner you deposited. In other words, you must use the same method to withdraw as you did to deposit if it’s available. Bet365 usually processes withdrawals within 2-3 hours.

While our experts were conducting this review of Bet365, they had a couple of interactions with the customer service team. You can get in touch with Bet365 24/7 using the Live Chat function. While the site usually offers support by telephone, it wasn’t available at the time of the review. This was likely due to the pandemic. Regardless, it does impact our overall customer service rating.
We first got a hold of an agent using Live Chat. She greeted us within seconds and then clearly and politely proceeded to answer our question. Our email enquiry generated an auto-reply which was received in about a minute. A detailed email that answered our question followed about 45 minutes later.
Bet365 earns our respect. It’s a challenge to come up with anything significant to complain about. The odds are very good and existing customers can take advantage of a vast selection of promotions. The welcome offer is decent and the live-streaming feature is the cherry on top. It really takes betting and in-play wagering at Bet365 to the next level. The fact that Bet365 boasts over 6 million customers from over the world is a testament to how great this bookie is.
Another thing that makes Bet365 a favourite among bettors is that the site also features a casino and poker room. Punters need just a single account to access all three verticals. This means that Filipinos with Bet365 accounts will never run out of things to bet on.
