Hi guys,

Anyone here bet on BET365? What are your experiences? Where you able to withdraw your funds or did they give you trouble? Just want to get your views on this site, whether it's legit or not.

I do only for 1 year but i never had any problem with my funds and withdraws. In my oppinion it's the best betting site with the best live offers

I bet a huge amount the other day, around $6k USA currency and I lost it on a tennis match. As soon as I placed the bet I had a cold feet and tried to get in contact with them. It was too late. Worst decision I ever made. To make matters worse the bet was a women's ITF match. The person I was betting on had a double break up, and was in the running to win the set. I bet on the first set. She then proceeded to blow both breaks and lose in a tiebreaker.

I'm a huge idiot for doing this. I had cold feet before I placed any bet, but I would have made $2000 if she had won and the odds were in my favour big time. Anyways, rule of them is this : don't ever bet on a women's ITF game because ANYTHING can happen. I'm also never going to bet anything over R100 again. I still can't believe I lost $6000 of my hard earned cash over a flipping ITF match. Life goes on and all that, but that was basically a 1 years savings, gone down the drain in a matter of minutes.

Bet365 are a good bookie who pay very fast. They do limit very quickly though - one of the worst UK bookmakers in that regard.

Which UK bookie does not limit successful customers quickly?

For me personally bet365 has been the most restricting bookie ever, I only managed to win maybe 300€ (which is small to me) and I got restricted to 10€ stakes. Im guessing they noticed that I only use top odds. I would avoid a bookie like this that only likes to keep recreational gamblers.

surprising

usually you need to win thousands before they limit you to 10 euro stakes

Ive never had any problems. Ive made about a $1200 profit and not been limited. All withdraws have been done within 1 business day

Always with these books it's not how much you win, it's how you go about it. Put bluntly: they have no problem with winners who they think have simply been lucky, because they know they'll probably get the money back.

Books ban or limit because they believe that customer is likely to be unprofitable in future.

I have a very good relationship with bet365, I was able to cancled some bets and get my money back.

They are thieves. Plus now they are based in Australia, so no live betting.

good point. I'm a 365 customer for years now. I've an overall postive balance with them of some thousands € but they all came from accumulators so I never got my account limited.
never had a problem with them, withrawals are fast and everytime there's been an issue with the account I got it sorted out in a few minutes.

OP must have had a bank of 100,000 $ to stake 6 grands on an ITF match (I realise it's on old thread btw)

You've got to have either 5dimes, 365 or marathon if you like to have a tenner on challengers every now and then.

Bet365 allows decent stakes even if you are limited. To win 100 or 150 is still okay because they have tons of mistakes each day with big odds.
Look at other books. There is no book where you can bet longterm without limits. Bwin/gamebookers will take you down to pennies without bankers.
Betting without Bet365 wouldn't be the same tbh, i take 75% of my bets there because they have a sick offer. Also you can have a lot of accounts because they don't have a strict procedure to register like other books have.

they're a good book overall.

my experience is the same as outrider. limited pretty quickly but the seem to tolerate winning punters without taking any further action and in-play limits to win €900 per price are plenty big enough for me. ie I can stake 900 at 2, another 990 at 1.9 etc.

they pull some sneaky tricks like resettling bets at "correct odds" but it's a small price to play because you can't really do without them if you want to bet regularly on lower level tennis.

I don't like the odds on there - but the site is super easy to use and markets for everything.

Pinnacle is a pain in the ass but their odds make it worthwhile.

What's the quality of their tennis livestreams and how much do you have to deposit to see them?

The quality is very high, but the size of the window is pretty small to be honest. You have to have any money to watch them (or have in-play wagers).

I prefer betvictor, paddypower and sbobet (especially asian handicap) as they tend to have the best odds almost each time i compare them. bet365 site is easy to use, though, and so much better than william hill.
