In business since 2000, Bet365 Group Limited is a UK based online betting firm owned and managed by the Coates family. With over seven million active members spread across more than two hundred countries across the world, the business has increasingly grown to earn a place amongst the most elite and leading in the online sports betting services worldwide. Based in the city of Stoke–on–Trent and currently employing over one thousand and five hundred people, the gambling group is the largest private employer in the city and the seventh largest in the whole of the United Kingdom.
In addition to its Stoke–on–Trent headquarters, bet365 has got additional offices in Australia and Gibraltar respectively. Whilst the company’s sports betting operations are licensed and regulated by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission, its poker, casino and games betting services are licensed and subsequently regulated by the Gibraltar Government. With around one hundred people currently employed in its Darwin office, the Northern Territory Government licences and regulates its Australian business.
Bet365 offers sports betting, bingo, poker, games, casino, along with live video streams on sporting events and an on–course bookmaking service –a service that is currently offered by few online gambling companies.
The Bet365 official website has a very clean look and it is aesthetically designed with user–friendliness in mind. Sports are distinctly highlighted in an alphabetical order on the left–hand side of the homepage while information on events and the odds available are clearly displayed in the centre window. A box appearing at the top right corner of the home screen enables bettors to easily create bet slips for their favourite sports betting markets. With fantastic navigability, customers are certain to have no cause for navigating back and forth between pages.
The Coates family puts everything in place to ensure the betting operations on their online gambling arm are nothing but pieces of cake, and that’s exactly what they have achieved. For instance, the bet slip bar contains a question mark symbol designed specifically to take those, especially new members, who want to learn how to play the game to the appropriate window (a pop–up window containing step–by–step instructions with graphics). For those who fancy watching more than reading, a First Bet Flash Tutorial is also available on the site to get up and running. Other handy features of the Bet365 official website includes quick links to in–play betting and other betting market options such as casino, bingo, poker and games.
