The Hillside-owned bet365 is one of the biggest and most recognisable gambling brands in the United Kingdom. It offers an eclectic mix of betting and gaming services, including bet365 Bingo and bet365 Casino. In this review, I’ll be taking a closer look at bet365 Games, which is all about slots and other interactive games.
Deposit £10 as a new bet365 Games player and you can spin a Free Spin Wheel every day for 5 days, unlocking between 5 and 20 spins each time. The spins are available on a few popular slots and you have 30 days to collect them after signing up.
You don’t have to meet any wagering requirements with your free spin winnings and can withdraw any cash you collect.
bet365 Games has numerous loyalty bonuses and offers, including tournaments and giveaways. It’s also one of the few sites that dish out regular bonuses to active members. In my case, most of these offers come from the sportsbook, with the site typically sending a £5 or £10 free bet my way every few weeks.
Maybe it’s because I’m fairly active on the site and have given them a lot of money over the years. But the same could be said for a dozen other sites I regularly use and this is the only one that gives me random rewards. Despite not being as active on bet365 Games as I am on the sportsbook, I have also received many free spin offers.
Slots and Other Games
bet365 Games does the classic UK sportsbook thing of creating two online casinos. If you look along the top of the main bet365 website, you’ll see options linking to all sections of the site, including Bingo and Poker. For some reason, there is a “Casino” section and a “Games” section, both of them are what you would consider online casinos as both are stocked with slots. The difference is that the Casino section also includes table games and live casino games and tends to focus more on feature slots and jackpot slots.
It doesn’t really make a difference from the player’s perspective. Just know that if you can’t find what you’re looking for on bet365 Games, you can click over to bet365 Casino. One account will give you access to all sections and you don’t need to worry about keeping different wallets. However, it seems that the slots available in the Games section are also listed in the Casino section, so I really don’t know what’s going on.
The slots in question include top titles from big UK players like Blueprint Gaming and Pragmatic Play.
On a personal level, bet365 Games has always been my go-to source of Playtech games. I have been around this industry for a long time and in the early years, it seemed that every UK casino hosted a few hundred Microgaming titles and nothing else. Some years ago, I was contracted to review hundreds of Microgaming slots for several different sites, which meant I had to play all of them and write anywhere from 500 to 2,000 words on them, often covering the same content across multiple articles.
As a result, I got pretty sick of Microgaming and usually seek out Playtech where I can. I’m not sure why, but while this developer is a regular feature in European casinos, it doesn’t feature as prominently in the UK. And when it does, it’s usually without the developer’s classic Age of the Gods series.
bet365 Games is definitely not lacking in that department. It goes all out with its Playtech offering and supports it with slots from numerous other creators. There are Megaways games, Daily Drop jackpots, progressive jackpots, and more. You can even find crash games here (under “Other Games”) which are also criminally underused by UK casinos.
The icing on the cake is that bet365 Games also has original games, which means you won’t find these titles anywhere else.
I have been a member of bet365 for many years and can’t recall ever having an issue with the banking options. Until a year ago, withdrawals were on the slow side. It’s one of the few sites where I still use a debit card as opposed to PayPal, and for a long time, it was the slowest. It would take anywhere up to a few days to get my cash.
These days, with Faster Payments, the money hits my bank account straight away. In fact, this method is faster than other sites where I use PayPal. At £5, the minimum deposit is also one of the lowest you will find.
Verdict: bet365 Games Review
bet365 is a massive site, and it’s one that I have previously reviewed, discussing how I have been a member for a number of years. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s hard to argue with the sheer scale and variety on offer here, and that also extends to bet365 Games.
The games are great and the originality of this selection is why bet365 Games will always remain in my bookmarks, even if it’s never quite my favourite casino. Add some rapid withdrawals and solid bonuses to the mix and you have a winning casino that honours the bet365 name.

bet365 Games FAQ
Can I get a bonus on bet365 Games if I have a sportsbook account?
If you have already collected a welcome bonus via the sportsbook, you can’t get one on bet365 Games or any other section of the site. If you recently joined the sportsbook but have yet to deposit or collect a bonus, you might be okay. It depends on when you joined and if you have missed the bonus period. Check the terms and conditions for more information.
Can I use bet365 Games if I have an account elsewhere on the site?
Yes. One account provides access to all of bet365. You don’t need to sign up again and as you’re not allowed multiple accounts, I would advise against doing so.
What is the bet365 Games welcome bonus?
It varies. At the time of writing, the site is offering free spins over several days, but that is subject to change. Check the link at the top of this page to be directed to the latest bonus offer and be sure to read the terms and conditions.
Can I use PayPal on bet365 Games?
Yes, PayPal is accepted, along with a handful of other payment options. You will see a list of options when you visit the cashier.
