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?

When sports betting becomes legal in California, bet365 may offer a promotion similar to what they offer in other states. New players can obtain up to $150 in Bonus Bets. To activate these Bonus Bets, a user needs to place qualifying bets totaling $5, which must be settled within 30 days of claiming the offer. The Bonus Bets are held in the user's account balance and are non-withdrawable. 

These bets become available typically within one hour after the qualifying bets have settled. However, it's important to note the specific conditions and restrictions that apply to the release and use of Bonus Bets, such as the prohibition of certain bet types and the requirement that only bets with odds of -500 or greater count towards the release of Bonus Bets. 

Moreover, Bonus Bets have a 7-day expiration and cannot be used on all bet types, emphasizing the need for timely and strategic use to maximize their potential benefit.

How long will it take for the bet365 promo reward to be credited?

Upon legalization and availability, when players qualify for the bet $5, get $150 in Bonus Bets promo, bonus bets are typically credited to the player's account within an hour of meeting the qualifying settled bet requirement. 

However, if this process takes longer, players are advised to contact customer support for assistance.

Fixing problems if the bet365 California promo is not working

If you're encountering issues with the bet365 CA bonus not working, there are several technical solutions you can try to resolve the problem. 

First, refresh the page to see if that corrects the issue as it could be a temporary glitch. If the problem persists, clear your browser's cache and cookies, as accumulated data can sometimes cause interference with site operations. Another step is to try accessing the site from a different browser or device to see if the issue is specific to the browser you were initially using. 

If these steps don't resolve the issue, it's advisable to contact bet365 customer support for further assistance. They are well-equipped to troubleshoot and guide you through any necessary steps to fix the problem. 

Do remember, online sports betting has not been legalized in California yet, so these solutions are preemptive, based on the expectation that bet365 will offer similar promotions to those in other states once it becomes legal.

  • You must wager a minimum of $5 in qualifying bets, which must be settled within 30 days of claiming the offer, to release your $150 in Bonus Bets.
