Following the success of their sportsbook, bet365 turned their hand to casinos with bet365 Casino and by all accounts have made a pretty good job of this too.
Regular promotions, a bigger than usual 150% welcome bonus worth up to £150, and a good range of high-quality games lay the foundations for a well rounded casino offering from a trusted British name.
Industry and player acknowledgment comes in the form of the numerous awards that they've won over the years including the EGR Operator of the Year in 2010 as well as a host of other player focussed awards. More awards to follow, for bet365, that we're sure of.
bet365 online division is run by the Coates family and was set up in 2000. Although the fact that it's a family run business makes little difference to your playing experience, it's nice to know that the owners really do care about their products.
Founder and CEO Denise Coates was even appointed a CBE in the 2011 New Year Honours list. By our reckoning, this makes her the only online casino chief to have such an honour.
bet365 TV Advert
You've probably seen this Ray Winstone advert a million times - especially if you have Sky Sports
All of this prestige has even spilled out into their advertising campaigns too as Ray Winstone, the king of UK cinema (sort of), can often be seen on TV singing the praises of bet365.
But all of this would count for nothing if the casino itself wasn't up to much. Fortunately, the Stoke-based company made a shrewd move by pairing up with Playtech to power their casino games. This means that they can call on an impressive stable of more than 150 high quality games across their download, no-download and mobile casinos.
Among others, this includes impressive live dealer games with Asian and Euro dealer options, as well as the most popular slots series of all time – Marvel slots – which include titles such as Blade and Fantastic Four.
However, if you're going to enjoy these games you'll have to be prepared to bet big. This is because bet365 Casino has been known to have high betting minimums on some slots, so be prepared to loosen the purse strings when you start off.
Should you take the plunge and come out on top, then the good news is that the casino has also built up a reputation for speedy payouts. So once you've cashout out your winnings, you can get on with the easy task of spending it!
150% Welcome Bonus Worth up to £150
Despite not necessarily being a headline grabber, bet365 Casino's opening bonus is pretty generous. It provides players with an extra 150% of whatever they deposit (from at least £10) up to £150 and requires players to wager the deposit and bonus amount 20x before withdrawal. However, you have to get playing fast, as the bonus balance can only be withdrawn if the wagering requirements are met within 30 days of your deposit.
Once you're in and playing at bet365, there are a number of things to keep you busy; tournaments, live games promotions and special featured promotions, such as the £2,500,000 Slots Giveaway that was on offer at the time of writing.
For regular players there's the Slots Club and a VIP Scheme which are designed to reward loyalty in the best possible way – higher point to £ conversions and exclusive tailor-made bonuses.
Quality over Quantity
bet365 Casino's selection of 150+ games provides plenty of choice without bombarding you with too many games to choose from.
There are just three blackjack games for example, meaning that there's no messing about sorting through tens of different versions and you can get straight into the action.
Whilst bet365 they may not have 250+ casino games on offer, what's most striking about the game selection is the variety and style of games they've chosen to include in the casino. From casual games to traditional slots and live dealer games, there's something for everyone here. Games such as the Iron Man 2 Scratchcard, progressive games like Jackpot Darts and even the custom ‘bet365 Slots' help pull bet365's handpicked games offering out of the crowd and into your living room.
A Varied Live Dealer Offering
Ten different Playtech-powered live dealer games are on offer at bet365 Casino providing it with one of the most varied live casino offerings around.
There's the usual live games such as baccarat, blackjack and roulette as well as unlimited and VIP versions and even some live sic bo (yeah we're not too fussed about sic bo either). Players also have the choice between Asian and European dealers (all girls of course).
Medium Progressive Jackpots
The casino has a total of 17 progressive jackpots across a range of different games, which at first sight doesn't seem too bad.
However, the size of the jackpots isn't always as big as some that you might find in other casinos. That's not to say there aren't some big wins to be had. Beach Life, Gold Rally and Spammalot Slot often have hundred thousand pound jackpots, so if slots are your thing check these out first.
Mobile Casino in its Early Stages

It may be played directly from the bet365 mobile casino website or downloaded to your mobile phone.The casino's top slots, such as Gold Rally and Chinese Kitchen are available, in addition to classics like roulette and blackjack. The selection of
games could stand to be more extensive, bet 365 have covered the basics and we're sure improvements shall be made over time.
