With more and more Indians enjoying the world of online gambling many new companies are entering the market and existing companies are providing new services specific to Indian gamblers. Given all the options now available it is worthwhile taking a little time to read up and find the best gambling site that suits you.
Bet365 is an established online gambling platform with years of experience in the Indian market. The British company was founded in 2000 and have grown into one of the biggest online gambling companies in the world boasting a global customer base of 45 million people served by more than 4000 employees. The company offers a wide array of gambling in India that includes sports betting, casino games, a live casino, poker games, and bingo.
Deposits and Withdrawals
Bet365 offers deposits and withdrawals in rupees. Deposits can be made on Bet365 using bank transfer or popular e-wallet services like Skrill, Neteller, and AstroPay. Unfortunately, bank transfers have a significant processing period of 2 to 10 banking days. It is best to use an alternative method unless you like to plan your gambling quite a few days in advance. The minimum amount you can deposit on bet365 varies depending on the method, ₹350 for Skrill, ₹1000 for Neteller, and ₹400 when using credit cards.
Withdrawals are available via bank transfer however a fee is applied if more than one bank transfer withdrawal is made in a month. There is also a processing time of 2 to 10 banking days for bank transfer withdrawals. AstroPay withdrawals are not supported on Bet365 but Skrill and Neteller are with processing periods of 0 – 24 hours and 0 – 12 hours, respectively.
Bet365 offers 24 hours a day 7 days a week customer service. With dedicated phone lines, email, and a customer service chat function to try and answer your queries swiftly by your preferred form of communication.
Sign Up Bonus
When choosing an online gambling site, the sign up bonus they offer can be a key part of the decision making process. It’s always nice to get a bonus in the hopes of turning it into real winnings or a way of testing the betting markets and games on offer without having to risk your own money.
Unlike many other sites, Bet365 only offers the option of one sign up bonus. Upon registering for an account and making a deposit of ₹400 or more customers can claim 15% of the deposit in bet credits up to a maximum of ₹4000. So, to get the maximum amount of bet credits you have to deposit ₹30,000. You can place qualifying bets to the value of 12 times your deposit and your bet credits are made available after these bets have settled. Bet credits have a turnover of 12x on bets with minimum odds of 1.2 before winnings can be withdrawn. These criteria must be met within 30 days of registering your account.
This may seem like one of the weaker sign up bonuses offered by major online gambling companies in India. However, with lower turnover and bets with smaller minimum odds means there is more value than customers first think.
Sports betting is where Bet365 leads the way for online gambling sites. Visiting Bet365 makes you realise just how many sporting events are taking place. The size of the company allows them to cover a huge amount of sports from all over the world. It’s not just cricket, football, and horse racing, they offer American sports (baseball/basketball/American football), combat sports, cycling, motorsports (F1/speedway), the list is exhaustive. They also offer markets on the growing world of esports as well.
The depth of coverage for each sport is also staggering. Take cricket, for example, Bet365 doesn’t just offer markets on international matches and big competitions like the IPL. You can bet on the Hapur Premier league, T10 league, Vincy Premier League T10, or even quickfire virtual cricket matches.
Bet365 also live streams many sporting events that are hard to find elsewhere. So, if you want to bet on an obscure event there’s a chance you can watch it live on Bet365 as well.
All this comes with constantly updated Bet365 specials, these are promotions that include money back on specific bets, accumulator bonuses or free bets.
