Bet365 has its roots in the United Kingdom and it is not a surprise that most of the European sports are covered in extensive detail. Football, though, is immensely popular in Africa and this continues to be the mainstay of Bet365 Ghana. I was able to get markets on a variety of football leagues and tournaments from around the world. Crucially, the Africa Cup of Nations is covered with extensive effervescence and I could get more than 100 markets on many of the games at this tournament.
It is not a surprise that the Premier League, Spanish La Liga, Italian Serie A, and Champions League are also focused heavily, as these tend to enjoy great popularity in this part of the world. The same can be said about the Ghanaian Premier League, which has 18 teams playing against each other.
Furthermore, other popular sports in Ghana include basketball, tennis, boxing, cricket, and athletics. All these and more are covered by Bet365, which even provides the option to bet on TV shows and politics.
Odds Prices & Betting Limits
The prices offered by Bet365 do not stand out from the crowd. The prices are competitive, but they do not have a significant advantage over the prices offered by competitors. Even then, I had little reason to switch since the associated features with Bet365 appeared to enhance the value. I had no problem with the betting limits imposed by Bet365 Ghana, but a very successful account or a high-roller could face issues in this regard.
Review of Casino Section
The casino section at Bet365 is rich with a variety of slot games, table games, video poker, and live dealer options. Some of my favourite slots at Bet365 were Gung Pow and Gonzo’s Quest. The decision to offer games from different developers results in a massive influx of options, which differ in paylines, features, or themes. This makes for an enjoyable experience, although serious games are a letdown. The live dealer options, though, redeem the experience to a certain extent.
Closer look at Bingo Section
The bingo section at Bet365 comes courtesy of Playtech software, which works very well on different networks. I was able to experience a friendly atmosphere along with plenty of participants within the exclusive rooms. There are different options like 75 ball and 80 ball bingo.
Closer look at Games Section
The games section provides a decent level of entertainment, but it can improve a lot more. The likes of Lucky Gems were quite interesting options, but most of the games were quite mediocre. Yet, I was able to spend a decent amount of time in the section as an alternate to the betting interface.
Closer look at Vegas and Poker Section
For serious gamers who are looking for more out of Bet365, this would be the place to get video poker and Vegas games under one roof. The options in the slot titles are quite decent, but they are overshadowed by the poker section, which has premium tables amongst other advantages. This section is certainly not capable of standing on its own to meet the requirements of demanding casino users, but it is capable of holding its own nonetheless.
FAQ about Bet365
What are the withdrawal options available for Ghanaians?
There are a couple of options available for Ghanaians to make a deposit. They are Visa credit and debit cards, MasterCard credit and debit cards, Skrill, NETELLER, bank wire transfer, and cheque.
Is it possible to deposit using Ghanaian Cedi?
No, not many bookmakers offer support for Ghanaian Cedi. Bet365 is no different and users are restricted to popular currencies like Euro and United States dollar.
Is the cash out feature available in all markets?
No, the cash out is one of the premium features offered by Bet365. It is available only in certain markets, but a punter can always initiate partial or auto Cash Out.

Site Design and User Experience
The user interface at Bet365 may not win any plaudits initially, but I found it rather well-designed after a period of use. It certainly requires some getting used to, but the navigation properties are quite excellent. It does not take long to find the markets that I prefer. There were some interesting touches like the ability to add match alerts.
Live Betting Opportunities
A dedicated section is available for live bets, which are offered across different sports like soccer, basketball, tennis, eSports, horse racing, and more. I had the option of catching the live odds of different events in one sport on the primary interface. Even here, it is possible to sort markets based on preference. For example, I could configure the betting interface to display just the full-time results if required. I could also enter into the specific events to access the full complement of markets.
How to make live bets
The process of placing a live bet involves:
- Visiting the Bet365 page and switching over to the in-play section
- The markets can be sorted on the basis of sports
- Navigate to the appropriate event and click on the appropriate market to open the betting slip
- Enter the stake and confirm the bet
Live Streaming Options
The live streaming is one of the biggest advantages of signing up with Bet365, as I need not spend extra to watch live broadcast of sports. Bet365 claims to offer almost 200,000 events every year and the claims are certainly justified based on the schedule. The streams are available on all popular sports in Ghana. All they had to do was place a deposit 24 hours before the start of the events so that my account had a positive balance. If I had to watch horse races, though, I needed to have a valid bet.
To use the Live Streaming service you will need to be logged in and have a funded account or to have placed a bet in the last 24 hours.
Access through Mobile App
The Bet365 experience can also be enjoyed on a mobile device. I was able to find apps for Android and iOS devices. Even though the process of installation on the latter was seamless, it was not a difficult job to install the Android app. The betting interface offered on the app is slightly better than on the desktop site. Strangely, it does not feel cluttered even with a lot of options. There are advantages to using the app like the ability to pin down the live stream so that I could keep track of the live bets and the event all at once.
Live Betting – The live betting interface offered by Bet365 is intuitive and friendly. All events in a single sport can be tracked for specific markets. It is also possible to set favourites so that frequent navigation is necessary.
Live Streaming – This is a feature that significantly enhances the experience from live betting on sporting events. There is a large volume of live streams available per year and I need not pay for these streams. Instead, a funded account is merely sufficient for watching the content.
Edit Bet – This is a customisation feature that allows me to edit a particular bet by even adding or removing content. Interestingly, this feature is available even during in-play bets. This can be highly useful for those who are not completely sure about their selections.
Bet Builder – Even though the depth of coverage offered by Bet365 is incredible, I still had situations where some of my preferred options were unavailable. Rather than contact the customer support in order to create such bets and receive prices, I could simply use the Bet Builder feature to create my own markets. This feature would then automatically offer prices for this new market.
Cash Out – I was able to attain more control over bets by using the cash out feature. It can be applied partially or fully depending on preference. Crucially, one can also set this feature to trigger automatically once predefined conditions are met. This ended up saving a lot of time and effort. More importantly, it can end up saving profits or reducing losses.

My Bet365 Review – Highly Advocated
Bet365 Ghana is one of the few betting destinations for punters in this country. Even though I could not use Ghanaian Cedi, this is one of the few limitations experienced during the time with this operator. The excellently betting interface coupled with outstanding coverage of the live stream section makes for a great betting experience on live matches. The odds may not be priced a lot superior to other sportsbooks, but features like Cash Out help get more value.
