Bet365

Bet365 is widely known in Europe as a bookie and this certainly holds for most players based in the Netherlands. Once meant as a land based betting shop in the UK, Bet365 has managed to become a global online gambling brand.

Bet365 Casino also entered the Dutch gambling market with a Dutch KSA licence and in our review we will share our thoughts on whether we think Bet365 can also conquer the Netherlands in the same way they’ve conquered other parts of Europe.

About Bet365

Bet365 is one of the first gambling sites in the Netherlands that is officially allowed to operate with a licence from the KSA. As they’ve gained vast experience in foreign markets, players in the Netherlands can rest assured as they’re about to sign up at a casino that enjoys an excellent reputation. 

First impressions

The website doesn’t really surprise us because we were already familiar with the international site for a long time. The Dutch edition follows the same design and it won’t take a long time to understand that Bet365 is primarily aimed at sports bettors and to a lesser extent at online casino players. This isn’t a disadvantage when it comes to Bet365 as they still offer more casino games than whatever Dutch casino brand. 

Bet365 bonuses

The Bet365 Casino welcome package in the Netherlands consists of a 100% deposit bonus that can go up to a maximum amount of €100. That’s not an awful lot of bonus cash, but it’s not very different from what other operators in the Netherlands have on offer.

Portfolio

Bet365 is known in the Netherlands for its sports betting offer and it’s easy to understand why. Their sportsbook is quite something and features pretty much all sports events you can think of. The online casino features +1000 games and includes the best providers. 

Live dealer casino

Of the 1000 available games, there are only about 20 live casino games which is very limited, even for Dutch standards. The live casino features games by both Playtech and Evolution. 

Sports

The sportsbook is user friendly and offers players a clear platform. Sports such as darts, cycling and Formula 1 have turned out to be very popular in recent years in the Netherlands, which is why you’ll find a lot of options to bet on — apart from the usual suspects like football. Bet365 gives you both a bet builder and a live streaming service. 

Customer support

You can contact Bet365 24 hours a day via their live chat service, by telephone, and social media. There is also a rather complete FAQ page that contains quite some useful info. Our own experiences with the Bet365 support desk have been very positive. 

Banking

Most Dutch operators work with iDEAL and this also holds for Bet365. In addition, you’ll also be able to deposit your funds with credit cards, via a wire transfer and even with Klarna. This should give most players in the Netherlands enough options to both deposit money and request a withdrawal.

OnlineCasino’s final thoughts

We believe that the arrival of foreign operators can lead to a lot more competitiveness on the Dutch market as offshore brands usually enjoy more experience and bigger portfolios. This is certainly true for Bet365 that has been around for ages and gives players a lot more casino games than local Dutch brands. The small live dealer casino is one of the few drawbacks we’ve come across in our visits to Bet365, but other than that we consider it one of the best casino brands available for players that are based in the Netherlands.
