Bet365 is a US based online gaming company that has been operating since 2000. The bet365 gaming platform offers a full suite of services including Sports, Casino, Poker, Bingo and more. In this review, I will document my personal experience of signing up and playing at the Bet365 Sportsbook and provide instructions so you can do the same!
FYI – I registered with the bet365 bonus code CBC365 and received the Bet365 Sports offer.
How to Register for a Bet365 Account
I went through the process of setting up a new bet365 account, depositing into that account, and placing some sports bets, and I’ll show you how you can do the same.
To register for an account at Bet365 you will need to be a resident of the US or one of the allowed countries, such as the neighboring EU countries. Bet365 has a strict policy for allowing only legal residents within these regions to create an account. After the sign-up process you will need to provide proof of identity with an ID card and an Identity Document.
To begin the registration process, click on the button above. This will take you to the landing page for the promotion. Here you will be able to read the full terms.
The Bet Credit can only be used at the Bet365 Sports website. This means you will not be able to use it to play games at the Bet365’s Casino, Poker, Live Casino, Games, Poker, Vegas or Bingo specific websites.
On this page, click on the yellow “View Latest Odds” button. Just to note, the wording may be different and say something similar to “Join”. This will take you to the sign-up form to open your account.
The information required is standard information that will be used to verify your identity. You will need to provide real information about yourself to be able to make a deposit and withdraw money. Bet365 will ask for proof of identity later on. If you plan to stake a wager for a chance to win real money make sure enter your your real information to prevent any headaches later. Here is the information needed to create your account.

After you create your account, you will need to verify your identity. You should see a pop-up asking you to verify yourself with their “Know Your Customer” validator. You will need to complete this step in order to make a deposit.
Here there will be two steps you will need to complete. Both will ask you to upload proof of identification.
You will have a choice to upload a photocopy of your a) Passport, b) Driving License or c) ID card. The choice is up to you. If you do not have any of the above, you will not be able verify your identity.
For step 2, you will need to a photocopy of your a) credit card billing statement b) banking statement or c) utility bill. For these documents, you must choose one that is as recent as 3 months and not an expired credit card. Similar to step 1, if you can’t provide this information, Bet365 will not validate your identity.
Once Bet365 verifies your identity, you will be allowed to make a deposit and access the rest of their website without any restrictions. It will also allow to access their other websites for their Bet365 Casino, Bet365 Bingo, and other games specific websites.
