bet365 Casino is run by bet365 Group Ltd, best known to many as a sportsbook operator. But over the past few years bet365 has made its name with a stunningly slick, honest and near-faultless online casino operation.
While it’s not always something that captures the headlines, we’re huge fans of bet365’s customer service team, who make it as easy as possible to make any enquiries about your account or about the site’s games. It’s one of the main reasons that its players stay so loyal. It also helps that it’s not unheard of for bet365 to hand out cash as a goodwill gesture if lady luck hasn’t graced you with her presence.
The use of Playtech’s casino software means that you’re unlikely to have any reason for complaint when it comes to casino game play. The software company has gone from strength to strength in recent times and is now considered the market leader. Looking at the selection of around 600 games on offer at the casino, it’s hard to argue with them. Big name slots such as Ghost Rider, Iron Man 2 and Gladiator add the sparkle while the roulette and blackjack games take care of the casino staples smoothly and without issue.
Whatever your casino game of choice it’s highly likely that bet365 have some kind of bonus or promotion running alongside it to give more bang for your buck and improve your chances of winning.

Once you build up a little confidence there are desktop and mobile roulette and slot tournaments on offer. All have cash prizes for hundreds of players who gain a decent ranking. There are also regular cashback promotions, for example the Daily Cash Escalator, which offers up to £100 a day based on 5% cashback on the second day of consecutive play, 10% on Day 3, 15% on Day 4 and 20% on Days 5-14.
The good thing with bet365 is that the bonuses you’re entitled to don’t hide away from you – they should be spelled out quite clearly in the casino software. Simply log in, and click on the Offers tab, and then on Offers Available.
You’ll not only see offers you have already qualified for, you’ll also see ones that you are still working towards the criteria for, so you can focus on reaching these if you want to unlock more bonuses – giving you a sense of direction on the days when you log on without really knowing what you plan to play.
The bet365 help pages are a great place to start learning the ropes, from the rules the casino applies to its different games, to some tips on basic strategy. General help can be found via the website footer, with an extensive range of FAQs and so on, or if you click the Help option on the menu from within a specific game, you should be given a set of rules specific to that title.
bet365 was one of the later online casinos to begin offering live dealer games. When they did, Playtech supplied the technology and dealers so you know you can expect great game play and a degree of professionalism from a dealer who’s probably not going to be too hard to look at either.
As always, the video streams are clear and reliable and if anything should interrupt your hand you can rely on bet365 to either play it to its conclusion in accordance with any set rules or, if there was a software or server problem, to refund your stake. Live dealer games available at bet365’s live casino include baccarat, blackjack, roulette and sic bo – and there’s also a mobile live dealer app available so you can play while on the move.
Take a look around the casino and you’ll soon start to spot huge sums of money that seem to be slowly but surely climbing before your eyes. These are the progressive jackpots – the biggest at any one time are usually given their own mention on every page of the site, but head to their jackpots page for a full rundown.
Progressives are available on a range of slots and table games including titles based on Deal or No Deal, Spamalot and the Marvel Comics range of games.
It’s encouraging to know that the bet365 casino has a good history of hosting big jackpot winners. A UK winner known only as G.H scooped just over £655,000 in July 2012 playing Gladiator while the Beach Life slot more recently dished out over £1,500,000 to Matt C who went on to invest the money in property and buy himself a brand new Ferrari.
bet365’s mobile casino is a great option if like us at Jackpot.co.uk you’re not a fan of mobile app-based casino play. Unlike some other mobile casinos which require you to download and install a platform-specific application, bet365’s mobile casino is accessed simply via a URL that you enter into your browser.
We recommend the best way to get started on the mobile casino is to register online so that when you access the site from your smartphone or tablet you simply need to put in your login details. Once you do you’ll automatically be able to play a selection casino games from the main casino site.
You should have no problem accessing the mobile site from an iPhone, iPad or Android device, but if you’re not sure whether your handset is compatible, there’s a full list on the bet365 website, sorted both by manufacturer name and model number, to clear up the last of any doubt.
