Bet365 is a great way to start playing your favourite games. It’s easy to access, has over 80 games, and the quality of the graphics is excellent.

To access the games, click on the link at the bottom of the page, the Homepage doesn’t show every game available, it took me a while to find my favourite game, Craps, but it was under ‘TABLE GAMES’, as is Mini Roulette, which is a great way to play with only 12 numbers on the wheel. With Mini Roulette, you also win 1/4 of your stake back if the ball lands on ‘0’.

You will also find Roulette Pro here, with some of the more sophisticated betting options such as Voisins Du Zero, Orphelins, and Neighbors.

As well as all the popular games that you will find at most casinos such as Roulette, Mini Roulette,  Baccarat, Craps, and Blackjack, , Bet365  games include fun, and addictive games like Rock/Paper/Scissors, Heads or Tails, Jacks or Better, and Penalty Shootout. Some games, like Derby Day virtual horseracing are real challenges, and this one  is ideal for those who understand horse racing form.

Bet365 also operate huge Sports betting, Poker and Bingo sites.

As you would expect, there are lots of Slots Games, most of which have free – play options. Gladiator is a particular favourite of ours, as are any of the video slots available.

Here’s are some of the most popular games at Bet365 –

Blackjack  – In this game, you are trying to get your cards to total as close to 21 as possible, without going over, or bust, and beating the Dealers total.

Two cards are dealt to you, face up, two are dealt to the Dealer, face down. The player choses to ‘Hit’ (be dealt another card), ‘Stand’ (Dealer reveals his cards to determine winner), or ‘Split’ (if players cards are the same denomination, Dealer can remove one, and replace with another.)

Once you get into the game, there are other bets that can be made, but these are the basics.

A win pays at evens; ‘Blackjack’, where your total is 21, pays out at 3 to 2. If you and the Dealer have the same total, your stake is returned.

Classic Blackjack – The simplest, most popular version.

Blackjack Surrender – Here, if you get a bad hand with you first two cards, you can abandon that round, without losing your stake. It’s a good way to practice the game before committing any real money to it.

Multi-Hand. – A more challenging version, where you can improve your odds by playing several hands at once. Very popular with more experienced players.

Blackjack Switch – In this game, you are dealt two hands, and can switch the top cards between hands to beat the dealer. This can greatly improve your odds by getting one hand as close to 21 as possible.

Pontoon – A British version of Blackjack, very similar, but the Dealers cards are not exposed. An Ace and Face card will beat any hand, and any 5 cards that do not bust will beat anything except Ace and Face.

Live Dealer Blackjack. You are up against a live Dealer, via a webcam, and can chat to other players. It includes sound, high-quality links, and is at no extra cost.

SLOTS  –Games  range from 3 and 5 reels slots, to the 100 reel ‘War of the Worlds’ , and if you choose to play for cash, the minimum spends tend to be in the 1p to 5p range. Note that Progressive Jackpot games are not available in Free-Play mode.


If you choose to play for real, Bet365 is a great choice. You get a first deposit bonus of 10% up to £100, so if you deposited £100, you would actually have £200 to play with.

Regular players get frequent bonus top-ups, including 20% top-up of any deposits made, and 10% of any losses paid back to your account.

As well as access to more games, cash players can enter Poker and Blackjack tournaments, access the Sports Betting, Bingo and Poker  sites of Bet365, and play the Progressive Jackpot Slots, such as Gold Rally, which has paid out a number of $1 million jackpots.

You can of course, visit the site and try these games out with no download, registration, or deposit, and choose your favourites.

If you choose to play for real, Bet365 offer a superb new player bonus of 100% up to £100. So if you deposit £100 with them, you get an extra £100 on top to play with. And thats not all because Bet365 recently introduced a Slots Club, specifically for slots players which gives away thousands of pounds a month to the top players.

You earn ‘Comp points’ every time you play, at the rate of 50 points for every £5 wagered. Then see your points build up on the ‘Comp Points Table’, and see what prizes you can claim. The prizes vary month to month, so check out the website for the latest offers.

Once you are playing, the slots payouts can be fantastic. For example, A Night On The Town pays outs 10,000 coins, and Captains Treasure, and award-winning, 5 reel, 9 payline game, can win you £25,000, or 5,000 x your stake. Some of the Progressive Jackpots are currently up to £250,000 to £350,000.


Bet365 accepts a huge range of payment options, such as credit and debit cards, Neteller, Moneybookers etc., pretty much any method that suits the player.
