Bet365 Interface, markets and navigation
With a list of all the available betting markets down the left-hand side of the homepage website, finding the event you want to wager on is easy. Customers have access to the most popular sporting events from around the world, along with other smaller events which many punters find enjoyable to bet on.
If there is ever an event you cannot locate, get in touch with the support staff at Bet365 (contact details at the foot of this review) and chances are, if the site is not currently offering the event for betting purposes, the team should be more than happy to put up a market for it.
In the main area of the homepage are quick links to, and odds for, upcoming popular sporting events and highlights. Customers can also change how the site displays the odds for all events and games – fractional (5/4), decimal (2.25) and American (+125). This option is located in the upper right-hand corner of the website, along with the Bet365 live streaming feature for all registered customers (watch certain sporting matches and events live from the site), the banking, mobile and tablet, promotions and help tabs.
Your bet slip (where your betting selections appear) is located on the right-hand side of the website, along with important promotions and information just below, including the 365 racing value feature, the multi-bet bonuses, and information about the partial cash out feature, too.
We noted some of the most popular markets above, but here is a complete list of all the markets Bet365 offers to its customers:
- Alpine Skiing
- American Football (NFL)

Mobile and tablet sports wagering at Bet365
Bet365 has its own dedicated market applications for both iOS and Android devices, which can be downloaded via this link.
Alternatively, you can bet directly via the Bet365 fully-fledged mobile browser site, which is just as fast, with the exact same set up, as the market app. This is useful for other smartphones such as BlackBerry and Windows devices, or if you simply prefer to access your content through the Web. You can also create your own Web app (settings, add to home screen) for your home-screen and for easy access. It provides the same functions and features as the market app, but is instead an extension of the mobile site (without any URL toolbars, and neater).
With any method you decide to choose, access all the available markets direct from your handheld device, deposit and withdraw, and check out all the latest and current promotions available.
