While the wait for legal NY online sports betting continues, it’s coming, and ESNY has you covered from every Bet365 Sportsbook New York news angle.

You have surely seen the commercial. Every New York sports fan, especially those who regularly watch MSG Networks, has seen Bet365’s push into the market. Jesse Pinkman, otherwise known as Aaron Paul in reality, firmly believes that Bet365 is “America’s Favorite Sportsbook.”

Bet365 figures to be a major sportsbook player in New York when legal NY online sports betting finally gets the green light from state politicians.


What Bet365 NY Will Look Like

Bet365’s layout is a fresh one that deserves the sports gambler’s attention. Led by its green and yellow feel (hello, Oregon Ducks), Bet365 is making a serious push in New York.

Bet365 Bonuses and Promos Review: 2.5

ESNY, Bet365 Review

Bet365’s introductory promos don’t compare well to the other industry big boys. Right now, a new Bet365 sports gambler can take advantage of up to $500 in bet credits.

Rather than an aggressive new-bettor strategy, Bet365 is making up for it with unique features and attractive pricing.

The other area Bet365 falls short is event-based promotions. Rarely will the online sports gambler see Bet365 offering promos for specific events.

Bet365 Betting App and Features Review: 3.5

ESNY, Bet365 Review

Bet365’s website isn’t overly fancy, but its simplicity and structure is extremely appealing for online sports bettors.

There are no ads, pictures or fancy bells and whistles. Instead, Bet365 relies on a clean look that was constructed for reliability.

Bet365’s mobile app is also clean and easy to use, and is available on the App Store as well as Google Play.

Bet365 Odds vs. Competitors Review: 3.5

ESNY, Bet365 Review

While Bet365 falls a little short in the initial promo area, its odds stack up decently well.

Bet365 has been extremely competitive when compared to other sportsbooks. The platform ranks near the bottom of the list in hold for a variety of different sports. (Ranking near the bottom is a good thing in this regard.)

Bet365’s hold is around 4%, which is great for sports bettors. The industry average falls in the 4-4.5% range, while some sportsbooks creep up to the 5% area.

Bet365 Deposit and Cashout Review: 3.0

ESNY, Bet365 Review

Bet365 is a trusted and regulated U.S. sportsbook, which means your personal information is safe and secure.

It’s extremely easy to register, deposit and cash out at Bet365. It accepts Visa and Mastercard, in addition to the standard deposit methods (bank account, e-check, etc.).

Early Payout Offers

Bet365 does a good job offering early payouts. It varies based on the situation, but the online sports bettor can cash out early if the lead/certainty is great enough to warrant it. It’s just another feature that allows the sports gambler as much control as possible. Cash-out early and take the cash or let it ride?

In-Play Wagering

Bet365’s odds update in real-time. So, if you miss your shot to wager prior to the contest, you can still get in on the action once it’s live.

How We Got Here

New York State FlagNew York isn’t there quite yet. While sports betting is legal in the state, the wait for the online and mobile app end of things continues despite several states launching online wagering platforms in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2018 decision to repeal the nationwide sports betting ban.

July 2019 marked the first time New Yorkers could legally wager on sports (brick-and-mortar locations only). Rivers Sportsbook in Schenectady, the first place in New York state where it legally opened up for sporting events, opened on July 16.

Naturally, politicians were the first to place a sports bet. Gary Pretlow, chair of the state Assembly racing and wagering committee, placed a bet on the Seattle Mariners. Schenectady Mayor Gary McCarthy put his faith in the Boston Red Sox.

The conversation surrounding opening it up for online use is as heavy as ever, with Governor Andrew Cuomo taking center stage.
