A Tradition of Excellence:
Written by J. Phillip Vogel
Some people argue that when it comes to online sportsbetting, it doesn't matter which site you choose.
"They're all the same," they say over and over again.
For my money, however, I want to find a site that has a
Tradition of Excellence
One of the oldest and most reliable sportsbooks, bet365 Group Limited has been one of the UK's foremost betting and gambling groups since 1974. Fully licensed and regulated, this company's 500+ employees handle an incredible 250,000 bets each week from customers in over 120 different countries. Since expanding their horizons to include the online gambling forum, bet365 Group has continued to affirm its reputation for professionalism, industry savvy and great gaming action.
Just one look at bet365.com's site speaks volumes.
Right from the start, bettors are treated to a tasteful barrage of highlighted information. From links to their latest promotional incentives to the vast array of current events ready to be wagered on, this site is a nice, tight package of gambling goodies.
Of course, even the most appealing looking site falls flat if it doesn't have an ample selection, right? No problem here.
bet365.com features an almost intriguing selection of both favorite and obscure wagering possibilities. These include the big three, football, baseball and basketball as well as boxing, cricket, cycling, darts, pool, horseracing, ice hockey, tennis and rugby – just to mention a few.
But as the old saying goes, man cannot live on bread alone. And so, sportsbettors who fancy the occasional jaunt to the casino side of the betting industry can take full advantage of
bet365.com's fully loaded casino. The games, which include numerous table, slot and video poker machines are available in multiple platforms – you can either download the software onto your system or play through your browser in the JAVA version. Either way, though, the graphics are great, access is simple, and the gaming is both realistic and profitable with verified payouts routinely exceeding 97%. Of course, that value is always subject to change, but thankfully players can check that out for themselves at any point – bet365.com provides a link to PricewaterhouseCoopers right at the bottom of the
bet365 Sportsbook home page.
Depending on your gaming preferences, getting started is either quick or really quick. For sportsbettors, it involves simply filling out a form online – name, address, personal preference, that sort of thing – followed by a deposit (via credit card, NETeller, FirePay, bank wire, FedEx, or Western Union) to establish a bankroll, and that's it.
Personal experiences with bet365 Sportsbook aside (which have been, I might add, nothing but helpful) it's obvious to even a casual visitor that this site takes pride in keeping their players happy, at ease, and free to bet. Their customer services staff is always on hand to answer any questions or promptly handle any problems that might arise. They're friendly and receptive to any good suggestions.
Well, there you have it, a brief glimpse into what I consider to be one of the best sportsbook/casino sites on the 'Net. As I stated when this review began, I prefer to protect my gambling investment by sticking with the sites that have proven themselves to be not only comprehensive and compelling, but also backed by an established industry leader. When all is said and done,
bet365 is nothing short of a
continuation of the excellence their land-based counterpart started over 25 years ago.
