Bet365.com is one of the most well known sportsbooks on the internet.  They take bets on a wide variety of race tracks from around the world and are our recommended online racebook for betting on UK or Irish races.  Americans are not able to wager at Bet365.com, but for everyone else this is a great racebook to have.  They guarantee the best price for a lot of UK & Ireland races and their promotions are some of the best you will find online.  Keep reading to learn more.

Sign Up Bonus

Bet365.com offers every new player a 100% matching bonus up to $200 on their first deposit.  This is a very generous offer that has a much higher matching percentage than most other online bookies.

You must deposit a minimum of $20 to qualify for the bonus and you must rollover the deposit once before the bonus amount is added to your account.  Then you must roll over the bonus three times before you are eligible for a withdrawal.  This is a very good bonus with a very easy rollover requirement.

Bet365 Racebook Promotions

One huge perk at Bet365 that isn’t really a promotion, but still deserves mention is that you can stream most of the races live at the Bet365.com website.  Bet365 doesn’t actually stream the races itself, but it provides a window with links to the stream at every track so it is very easy to watch and bet at the same time.

Here are some other horse racing promos that Bet365 offers in point form:

  • Price Promise – Bet365 guarantees the best price for all of the action shown on Channel 4 or the BBC.  Bet365 will match the best price given at Ladbrokes, William Hill, Paddy Power, Coral, Totesport or Boylesports on any of these races.
  • 4/1 Winner – If you back a winner at 4/1 or greater on the any of the Bet365 featured races and you win then you get a free bet for the same stake on the next featured race.
  • Payouts on Disqualified Horses – Bet365 will payout on horses that end up with a DQ on races in the UK and Ireland as well as the official winning horse on all WIN and each way bets.

As you can see there is huge value in betting on horses through Bet365!

Racebook Layout

Bet365 has a much different racebook layout than each of our other online bookies and I personally don’t really like it in comparison, but it is still easy to navigate and understand.  Instead of having a separate section for the racebook you just have to click on ‘horse racing’ from the left sidebar in the Sports section.  This will bring up the UK & Ireland tracks with all of the races that are available for the day.  Check the screenshot below.

You can also change from UK & Ireland to International or Australia to get more racetracks from around the world.  I changed to International and clicked on a race from Woodbine to bring up the betting page.  As you can see below Place is shown as (1-2) and Show is shown as (1-2-3), but they mean the same things.

Scrolling down you can see the exotic bets that are offered on the race.

Bet365 Exotic Bets

The daily double, pick 3 and pick 4 betting options are available in the track section after the races.

The Bet365 racebook has a lot of different layouts for different races, with some races having fixed odds, while others having the bets go into a pool.  Be sure to investigate this further and keep your eyes open when placing your bets to know which kind of wager you are making.

Tracks Offered

Bet365 doesn’t list every track that they take bets on, but if you check out the site you will see that there are a wide variety of tracks with bets being taken at UK & Ireland tracks, as well as International and even Australian tracks.  The chances are the Bet365 does take odds on the track you are interested in betting on.
