How to Use Bet Credits On Bet365? – Our Personal Experience
Before we start, we should put out a disclaimer; below is our experience. As such, it should not be taken as expert advice. Before participating in any offer, you should do your due diligence to read through the requirements tied to the Bet Credits above.
With that said, we found the process of claiming Bet Credits to be straight forward and simple. The process is similar to that of other bookmaker offers in the industry. However, the wording is different.
After completing the registration process and making our initial deposit, we received an email containing a unique offer code from Bet365. This is what we did after receiving this code:
- We navigated to the ‘My Account’ section and typed in the offer code in the ‘Offers’ area
- Submitting this code activated the Bet365 Bet Credit offer
- And since Bet Credits match the first deposit made maxing out at £100, we chose to deposit £100. This way, we got the maximum Bet Credits.
Using the Bet Credits
Before we used the Bet Credits, we first had to fulfil the turnover requirement. This means that we were required to place normal bets worth £100 (these bets should have odds of 1.20 and above). If we had decided to place an accumulator bet, then we would have had to make sure that one of the bets had odds of 1.20 or more.
While the turnover requirement required us to place a £100 bet, it didn’t require that the £100 be bet all at once. So here’s what we did – we placed several small bets worth £2, £10 and £20 bets until they accumulated to £100. Now, this might sound as though it was a lot of work, but it’s surprisingly not.
The process is quite fast. Before you place your bets, however, make sure that you’ve typed in the offer code and activated your Bet Credits. You also need to ensure that the bets you place settles within 30 days after using the offer code. This is key, especially if you intend to place bets that settle way into the future.
Bet365 Bet Credits
It’s easy to get caught up in the terminologies that Bet365 uses and lose sight of what’s on offer. So before you get caught up, here’s a simple explanation of what Bet Credits are. You see, every bookmaker has a way of phrasing or naming its sign-up offer. It just so happens that Bet Credits is the name that Bet365 chose for its sign-up offer.
So basically, it’s the offer that Bet365 extends to its new customers who sign up to their platform. However, as we’ve already pointed out before you get your hands on the offer, you need to do several things. First, make a deposit. Then, type in the offer code you receive in your email, and lastly, make qualifying bets as outlined in the turnover requirements. It’s only after completing these three steps that these credits will reflect in your balance for you to place bets with.
Bet365 Sport Betting
The list of sports that Bet365 offers is long. So we won’t even try to list them. However, we should point out that the list is dominated by football (soccer).
Now, given the popularity Bet365 enjoys the world over, it’s expected that they’d have loads of sport betting markets. They even feature sports we didn’t know existed! So, regardless of what sport you are into, big or small, you are bound to find it on Bet365.
The variety offered makes it the go-to platform during big sporting events like the Olympics. In addition to this, it helps to reel in more and more players.
Bet365 Football’s Betting Market Explained
Bet365 has categorised its betting market into Main, Half, Corners, Asian Lines, Specials and Goals. These categories make it easier for you to find what you are looking for. Below is a quick breakdown of what you can expect from each category:
The ‘Main’ category includes bets that you’d typically look for. These include the full-time results, the final score, the first scorer, European handicap and the fulltime/halftime market. You can also find the match result here.
The ‘Asian Lines’ are for the knowledgeable punters who want to be on the Asian markets. These include first half, Asian Goal Line and the first half/full-time Asian handicap.
Cards and Corners categories don’t need much explaining. Bet365 gives you the opportunity to bet on the number of cards and corners in a game and who will receive more corners or cards during a game.
On the other hand, the ‘Half’ market deals with markets that are, well, ‘Half’. It includes which team will be ahead at half time.
In the ‘Goal’ category, you can bet on everything about goals, including team goals, total goals scored, goals per minute, late goals, early goals, and a clean sheet.
With Bet365, you can use the Bet Credits on pretty much any category/market you please. We find it fun to commit to something long term. However, it’s wise to stick to markets you have a firm grasp of.
We did notice that on days that the sporting world was busy (mostly Saturdays when there are a lot of football games), bets took a little longer to settle. However, we didn’t find the wait bad enough to give a bad review – we are quite an understanding team. And where technology is involved, things are bound to go off track. But eventually, all bets are settled (even though it takes a few minutes longer).
Cashing Out on Bet365
Bet365’s cash out feature is the bomb. It’s especially helpful on the days that there are a lot of football games. Usually, we’d pace accumulator games on matches played at different times. What this meant is that some results would be settled ahead of others. So, depending on the betting markets we chose, Bet365 offered a cash-out value on the bets placed.
This feature comes in handy for both expert and novice bettors. However, before jumping up with joy, we recommend reading through some of the strategies we’ve come up with to help you get the best from your betting.
The Cash-Out Rules
Bet365 has an entire guide dedicated to these rules. In addition to these, there’s also a ‘terms and conditions’ list that highlights some of the cash out rules you ought to remember.
