Bet365 NJ Welcome Offer: $100 in Bet Credits Available

Min deposit $10. Bet Credits available for use upon settlement of bets to value of qualifying deposit. Min odds and bet restrictions apply. Bet Credits risk excluded from returns. T&Cs and time limits apply.

‘Bet Credits', what the hell are those? Sure, I was pretty confused about the concept at first, but it transpired that bet credits are essentially the same as ‘bonus money' — although this way, I feel Bet365 really drills home the fact it isn't real money. Good job!

Basically, after signing up and depositing $100, I had to claim my bet credit from the cashier, which is super simple; your largest deposit up to $100 within the 7 days you sign up will be the value of your bet credit, which is great for those with a lower budget.

But, how long does it take to get your Bet365 bet credit? I got mine in 10 minutes, but the terms and conditions say it could take up to an hour, so hang in there.

And how about releasing winnings from your bet credits? Well, it's pretty simple: I placed a bet which had a higher total risk value than my qualifying deposit. That's all there is to it.

Just to be sure though, is there anything else you need to know about the Bet365 bonus now? Well, from my personal experience, the fact you must not place bets with odds less than -500 is pretty important, as these bets won't got towards the wagering requirements to release your bet credits.

Is that everything? Well, for sure not, but those are what I felt were the most important aspects to Bet365's bet credits bonus. I've included the full terms and conditions below, again. Just in case you missed the T&Cs at the start of the review.

Betting Markets Available at Bet365 - NBA, NFL and MLB Betting

  • All national sports covered: NBA, NFL, MLB
  • Niche sports such as snooker also covered
  • Bet365 has darts betting available
  • 90 pregame markets on offer for MLB
  • Lacks the same amount of specials than their European counterpart

Overall, I'm impressed with the range of markets on offer, especially as Bet365 is a new NJ sportsbook. 

For example, I found their range of NBA markets compelling. In addition, when I checked out the NFL markets at Bet365, I was equally impressed. 

Sadly, MLB markets were lacking at the time of writing, but this is due to the offseason. I will update the review once I've managed to get a full handle on the MBL odds at Bet365.

Soccer is covered well at Bet365 NJ and mostly holds up to its European counterpart, but I found there aren't as many fixtures covered. The amount of markets covered rises up to 80, with even more set to be available for the World Cup. 

And finally, for anybody interested in darts or snooker betting — two popular sports over in the UK — then you will be happy to know I found those in abundance as well. 

Bet365's Mobile Site - Sleek, Smooth and Easy to Use

During my review of Bet365 NJ, I tested the service on both mobile and desktop. I have to say, both are equally as good to use. 

In summary, I feel the mobile site is intuitive, fresh and simple to get your head around. Major events and sports can be found at the top of your screen, with football and basketball markets a simple tap away.

Otherwise, you can use the A to Z style menu by tapping the top left hand corner of your screen. I found this way the best way to find odds on sports such as golf or darts. This is especially useful if you're into less popular sports, such as me. 

I found the menu at the bottom of the screen really useful, and especially the in-play betting tab, which allowed me to get odds on games that already taking place. And while I didn't place an in-play bet, it seemed super simple to use. 

And finally, and I'd say most importantly, it was super simple to deposit on mobile. Just head to your account (which you will find in the top right hand corner of your screen) and tap deposit, where you will be invited to deposit with your favourite method. Easy. 

Bet365 Deposit & Withdrawal Methods - What Banking Methods Are Available?

  • Cash (Hard Rock Hotel Casino)
  • Bet365 Mastercard
  • Visa
  • PaySafe Card
  • Bank Transfer
  • Skrill
  • PayPal

The minimum you can deposit with Bet365 NJ is $10.

Yes, to comply with NJ state law, all new customers must provide proof of age before depositing at Bet365. 

Super quick. The majority, apart from Bank Transfers, are instant. 

As I mentioned in the mobile section, I found depositing (once I had my ID verified) super simple. All I had to do was head to the cashier and add my deposit method — I used Visa, which was surprisingly simple, due to having issues with other sportsbooks in the past. The $10 minimum deposit is also pretty sweet, meaning I didn't have to break the bank just to place a sports bet. And the best thing yet — my funds were available instantly, meaning I could dive right into betting with Bet365 NJ. 

Withdrawing can take a little longer though, which I found a little frustrating, but it just means you have to be a little more patient. If you decide to withdraw by check (which is pretty crazy nowadays, might I add), it can take up to 2 weeks; in contrast withdrawing via bank transfer can take up to a few days. And while I won't speculate on which payment method is best for you, I recommend you check out the withdrawal times on the Bet365 NJ website. 

 

Customer Support at Bet365

During my test I didn't need to contact Bet365's customer services, so all I can really discuss is what options they have available.  Please see below for a list of ways to contact Bet365 customer support.

While I didn't get chance to use Bet365's customer support during my review, I've been told that their support is quick and efficient. And while I can't confirm this, I expect it to be the case.
