Long known to European bettors, bet365 launched in the United Kingdom in 2001, offering bettors a robust sports betting and casino experience that continues to thrive today.

When sports betting became legal in the United States with the overturning of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PAPSA), bet365 inked a deal with Hard Rock to venture into the United States market starting with New Jersey.

Fast forward to 2024, and bet365 is now live in six states (New Jersey, Colorado, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa, and Kentucky) as they continue to expand their U.S. operations. With California being the biggest state in the union, many believe it’s only a matter of time for California sports betting to be legalized as well.

Let’s dive into what to expect when bet365 California does go live.

No, the bet365 sportsbook is not yet legal in California, as The Golden State has not yet passed legislation to allow for regulated sports betting. There were two attempts in November 2022 that did not go the way sports betting advocates wanted, as both Prop 26 and Prop 27 failed miserably in state voting.

The first, Prop 26, would have allowed for the establishment of brick-and-mortar sportsbooks at the state’s tribal casinos. Prop 27 would have permitted online sportsbooks in CA to go live throughout the state with regulated operators such as bet365, but they would operate in partnership with California’s tribal casinos. 

In terms of a timeline, the next possible legalization referendum for California voters to consider would be on the ballot in November 2024. However, they will once again face opposition from anti-gambling lobbying groups and select tribal casinos. If the sentiment were to change among voters, the earliest California would see legal sports betting is 2025.

Which bonus will bet365 offer when they go live?

The bet365 default welcome offer in other states will deliver $365 in bonus bets, which is one of the best in the industry. With this bet365 offer, you must make a deposit of $10, place a bet of at least $1, and win or lose, $365 in bonus bets will be credited to your bonus bet balance once the bet is settled.

Bonus bets are not eligible for withdrawal, but any winnings are then added to your cash/withdrawable balance. This offer is valid for new customers only and must be claimed within 30 days of registering for your account. With regard to stipulations, the bet must have odds of -500 or greater, and the wager can be placed in any approved market.
