Bet365 Casino has always had a great reputation. This is still borne out in the player feedback found on leading player review and rating portals. From the wide array of gaming options to the customer service, fairness, and multi-tiered security regime, Canadians can find a gambling home to meet all of their betting desires.Visit Casino
By some counts, there are over 1,700 games on offer at Bet365 Casino. Navigation takes a moment to get accustomed to with so many game divisions. It’s anybody’s guess why the site developers decided years ago to create several separate casino sections prior to Live Games coming on board. Perhaps it was to offer more “welcome” bonuses. Perhaps it was because it was the first casino super-site featuring games from nearly every reputable online developer.
Once you eliminate bingo, poker, in-play and pre-event sports betting, the landscape becomes very manageable. The Casino section and the Games section each contain random number generator (RNG) slots and table games. Visitors will find arcade games, scratch tickets, fixed odds, and number games included in the Games section. Progressive jackpot slots are found in both sections. Either is a good place to start.
This is where you’ll find the lion’s share of games. The game provider list hovers around 50 developers including Playtech, Play’n GO, Microgaming, Nextgen, Blueprint, High 5 Games, Realistic, Greentube, Barcrest, and more. Along with Playtech proper games, you’ll find popular titles from subsidiary companies such as Mafia Millions from Virtue Fusion and Monty Python’s Life of Brian by Ash Gaming.
In the Casino section, games can be sorted and filtered in a number of ways once you reach the suite you find most interesting from within the following categories:
- Card Games
- Table Games
- Live Dealer
- Video Poker
- Games & Keno
- Slot Games
Order or re-order the game selection by Recommended, Highest Rated, Most Played, etc. Of course, a text search box is always available and Live Dealer games are only one click away from anywhere on the site.
The Games section offers another approach for players who like to jump around and explore different types of games. You’ll still find many of your favorite premium bonus slots as well as big progressive jackpots.
You can go to the Arcade to find instant horse and dog racing, virtual tennis and bike race games. Keno and Hi-Lo games are on tap along with Microgaming’s Max Damage and the Alien Attack – here you shoot invaders in an 80’s style console game with random awards for defending the planet.
Instant Wins include pull tabs and scratch games, doublers, Disco Keno, and 3 reel, 5 payline fixed odds “slots”. Look for games in the following categories:
- Premium, Bonus, and Video Slots
- Table Games
- Instant Wins
Including the jackpot games, there are 4 slots categories as well as table games such as craps, blackjack, and even some video poker.Visit Casino
Canadian players have several options to access the Bet365 Mobile Casino.

- Bet365 Games is available in a browser-based casino format for any device

However you choose to play at Bet365, with or without the app, you’ll find fast paced games. The Mobile Vegas lobby allows players to view games for android 4.0+, iPhone, or iPad in order to present the best possible gaming experience.
If you have an iPhone and want to play table and card games, the simple and easy to use filters will present only the mobile games you desire for your device.
Playtech chose Bet365 to debut their first native app for live casino gaming back in 2013. Since that time the HTML5 browser gaming framework has taken the internet gambling community by storm and apps are no longer required for mobile betting.
Playtech has three live studios in Europe and Asia with Canada receiving streams primarily from their mega-center in Riga, Latvia. It is the world’s largest cutting-edge live gaming facility and offers the ne plus ultra in a personalized gaming experience.
Augmented reality is their forte with never seen before content and mythical backdrops. Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, and all of their other games are delivered in a way no other provider can match.
Whether you play on the go with a handheld or other mobile device, or take advantage of the other end of the spectrum in optimized game presentation with a High Definition big screen and surround sound system, the experience is unforgettable and inimitable.
If you’ve never played live dealer games from Playtech you are in for a pleasant surprise!
Bottom Line On Bet365 Casino
This has been one of my favourite places to play since I discovered that Bet365 is more than simply one of the world’s largest and most successful sportsbooks. It was a pleasant surprise to return and find the new-to-me Vegas lobby. Although I still think of the site as a sportsbook with over £2.3 billion in annual revenue when I see the familiar logo, I rarely even bother to click away from the casino and games landscape when I visit. It’s almost like living in a large city but rarely leaving my self-contained neighborhood if I don’t need to.
I don’t mean to denigrate the sports betting side of the equation by not mentioning it much. Most learned professionals agree that we are still allowed to bet on single event sports and at online casinos if we don’t want to visit the Provincial sites like PlayOLG or PlayNow for parlay betting or “permissible” slots. And I don’t mean to leave the bingo section out – there are a tremendous number of slots, tables, and other games on the bet365bingo apps for iOS and Android. I do visit the bingo site from time to time to play Age of Gods bingo slots, but not for much else.
And then, there’s poker…
I think one of the most important things to note for new players is that a visit to Bet365 doesn’t need to be confusing at all. If you want to bet on sports, the option is there – if you want to play poker, the world is waiting – otherwise, it’s like a lot of different casinos all rolled into one with a dizzying amount of games to choose from. If there were one thing I’d suggest to them to make my gameplay even better, it would be to provide a way to sort by the game provider in addition to the existing filter and sort options. Other than that, this betting site is a must-have in any Canadian online casino player’s arsenal.
