Bet365 Sportsbook has not launched in Colorado. This review is based off of the NJ sportsbook. We’ll update this page as soon as Bet365 is live.
Bet365 are one of the biggest global betting brands. As part of the newly legal online betting market in Colorado you’ll find high-quality betting apps – along with a huge coverage of major and collegiate leagues.
This brand also brings some innovations to the Centennial state. These include early payout bets, live (in-play) betting and a big focus on boosting your parlay wins. You’ll also enjoy a bet credits worth up to $100 when you deposit.
You’ll find everything you need to get off to the best possible start with Bet365 Colorado below. This includes details of the bonuses and excellent promotions, along with how to download and navigate the Bet365 apps.
The welcome bonus at Bet365 has a different name to those at other CO sportsbooks – though this is essentially a generous deposit bonus.
Bet365 will match your first deposit in ‘Bet Credits’, up to $100. You need to bet your deposit; this is then matched dollar-for-dollar – whether your initial bets win or lose. The smallest deposit is just $10, making this offer accessible to smaller stakes bettors.
You’ll have 30 days to claim the free bet credit offer (go to the ‘Services’ menu, click on ‘My Offers’ and then ‘Claim Now’), and then another 30 days to use the free credits. When placing your free credits bets at least one selection has to be at odds of -500 or more (any singles need to be at those odds or higher).
As well as the welcome bonus, there are a series of other offers and bonuses for existing customers to get their teeth into.
Early Payout Offers play a big role at Bet365. When you place a bet on the moneyline on the NFL, the NBA or the NHL, any time your selection takes a big lead, they’ll pay out. This stands whether or not the team goes on to win. In the NFL, the lead is 17 points, in the NBA that lead is 20 points, while in the NHL that lead is 3 goals. Back your selection in confidence, and if they take that big lead, you’re in the money. You’ll enjoy a similar boost in soccer, where you are paid if your selection goes 2 goals ahead.
Parlay bonuses also feature heavily. Place a two or more selection parlay on NFL, NCAAF, CFL, NBA, WNBA, NCAAB, MLB, NHL markets and you’ll receive a bonus. Two selections see your pay out boosted by 5% and this number rises all the way to 50% when you place a parlay of 12 or more selections. Similar offers apply to parlays on European soccer and on tennis matches.
Other offers on global sports include a ‘No Score Draw Offer’, where you’ll get your money back on selected markets in soccer if there are no goals, and ‘Extra Time, Extra Chance’ in rugby, which sees your bets still live if the game goes into extra time.
The Bet365 site in Colorado follows the familiar three-column set up employed by many sportsbooks. In the left-hand panel, you’ll find the immediate links to sports. The right-hand column features the bet slip (and is also populated by links and odds relating to some of the more popular upcoming events). The larger middle column is where the markets appear, with the spread, totals and moneyline odds appearing by default, with the extended markets appearing when clicking on the number to the right (this number represents the number of extra markets).
At Bet365 you have four different ways in displaying the odds – American, fractional, decimal and a combination of fractional/decimal based on individual markets. This ensures you can set up the site in the way you are most comfortable with.
One of the big advantages you’ll find at Bet365 is the addition of live streaming of events. As long as your account is funded, or you’ve placed a wager in the last 24 hours, you’ll be able to watch sport live on the site. While you may not see live streaming on the major leagues at Bet365, there is a regular diet of action to get involved in.
The Bet365 Sportsbook is available on a mobile app, designed for both iPhone and Android devices. To download the Bet365 iPhone app simply head to Bet365 and follow the links. You can download the Bet365 Android app directly from the site itself (currently, the Google Play Store doesn’t allow downloads from gambling sites).
Yes, the recent law changes have seen sports betting become fully legal in Colorado. The recent referendum now means that sportsbooks can feature in both casinos and online. To place a bet, you have to be at least 21 years of age and physically present in Colorado (step outside of the state and geolocation software will be aware and restrict any betting opportunities).
Bet365 will need to partner with a live casino for their license. With so many venues in Black Hawk, Cripple Creek and Central City – there will be plenty of competition among the legal sportsbooks.
