  2. Enter your Country of residence, personal and contact information.
  3. Now, select "Join bet365" and check your registered email address for instructions.

Mobile App

bet365 Card

If you're looking for a way of gaining instant access to your funds, a bookmaker card will provide this ability and bet365 has you covered. As a verified customer, you can signup for the card via the my account section and you will need to follow the instructions. This involves accepting the terms and conditions, being an Australian resident and your address must be correct. The thing to watch with this card is withdrawable amounts only count for turned over amounts. For example, say you deposit $100 and place a $10 bet which wins $40, you will only be able to withdraw $40 and the rest will need to be turned over before a withdrawal can be made.

bet365 App Review

The mobile app brings the same betting experience to mobile with a streamlined version of the desktop website. Firstly, the homepage is nicely designed with upcoming markets, live in-play events, next to jump races and any available promotions. Within the left-side menu, you'll be able to quickly find sports betting markets and a range of live betting events. One of the great features of the app is live alerts. They provide the ability to receive live notifications for selected games. Such as for an NBA game, you can set up alerts to your phone with quarter time scores or even point by point score. Which is handy if you can't watch the game live. Speaking of watching sport live, the app also includes the great live streaming options available at this bookmaker. If an event can be live streamed, it will be represented by a video icon next to the betting market. A nice feature that is currently missing from the app is a pin-code login option, which saves you entering a password each time. But in the end, this is an impressive mobile app for betting and creating a customisable experience.

Live In-Play Betting

Looking at the live in-play betting available at this bookmaker, they have a nice range of markets to bet on while watching the action unfold. These markets can be easily found in the top left-hand menu via the desktop website. The available sports and racing events will be featured in the top overview section. In terms of racing, they have races available from around the globe and locally. It doesn't stop there as they also have sports covered with live betting on Soccer, Tennis, Basketball and more. There's a schedule option which will show upcoming live events as well.

Live Streaming

At bet365, live streaming is a key strength as they provide some of the best options in Australia.

There's also live streaming of a huge range of Soccer matches and they have the NBA available for Basketball fans. Similarly to live in-play betting, there's a schedule option where you can plan what to watch and when. So if you're into watching live sports, this bookmaker is highly recommended in Australia.

Betting Markets

In terms of betting markets, they're easy to find via the website and app with the left-hand menu displaying all the available sports or racing betting markets. The odds are very competitive with the competition and you can find a bit more value depending on the sport. Each event is well supported with a number of different bet types from the basics to the advanced options.
