If you are looking for a way to earn yourself a little extra cash to spend when betting on sports, are you always reliant on one of your bets coming in?
Of course, winning a bet is a nice way to boost your funds, but if you are a member of the Bet365 Sports site and are yet to enjoy their mobile sports betting service, then you could be just one bet away from a bonus worth up to $50, regardless of whether your bet wins or loses.
How does this work? Well, it’s all down to Bet365’s superb On The Move bonus, which is a promotion aimed at getting sports betting customers to trial Bet365 Sport via their mobile smartphone or tablet.
In this article, we’ll explain all you need to know so you can get your On The Move bonus sorted and in your account ready for you to bet with.
Of course the starting point here has to be that you have a Bet365 account. You don’t necessarily need a Sports account, any Bet365 account will give you access to this offer as once you register on one site, Bet365 gives you access to all the others from the same log in.
If you are not yet a Bet365 customer, then why not check out our Bet365 Sports review and join today, you’ll qualify for up to $100 in Bet365 Sports welcome bonuses when you do.
The only thing to remember at this point is NOT to use your mobile to place a bet while your new player offer is still running. As if you do, then you’ll be unable to take up the On The Move bonus offer. We’ll explain exactly why below.
So now let’s assume you have joined Bet365 Sport and your new player bonus has now expired. How can you claim the On The Move bonus?
How to access the On The Move bonus
The great thing about the On The Move bonus is that it is ridiculously easy to access. All you need to do, as either a new or existing Bet365 customer, is to download the Bet365 App onto your device. You can download an app for Apple devices from the App Store, or you can also download an app for Android devices from the Bet365 website.
That’s not all though as other devices can access the offer simply by using a browser to visit the Bet365 mobile compatible site for your chosen device.
Once you have logged in to your account via your mobile, all you need to do is head to the Bet365 Sports section and then look through the vast number of different sports bets available on the site. Then simply select a bet you wish to make and then place a bet of between $1 and $50 direct from your mobile.
After your first bet has been placed via your mobile device, Bet365 will automatically recognise that this is the case and they will then send you an email. This email will contain your unique offer code. You then visit the Members section of the Bet365 mobile site, which is located under the Services menu. Once in the Members section, click on Offers and then in the Enter Offer Code box, type or paste your unique code and click the button.
Once entered, the system will recognise your code and you will find you have your bonus bet available in your account.
Your bonus bet will be of the same value as your first mobile bet, up to a maximum value of $50. So if you placed your first bet of $25 with your mobile, then your bonus would be worth $25. If your first mobile bet is $50 or higher, then your bonus will be the maximum $50.
Once you have completed these stages, then your bonus bet is now in your account ready for you to use.
Are there any specific Terms and Conditions to be aware of for the On The Move bonus?
Yes there are some important terms and conditions you need to know about for this offer, the first and most obvious is that to qualify for the bonus, this must be the first time you place a bet with Bet365 via your mobile or tablet.
If you have already used your mobile to place a bet, then you will not be able to receive the offer. You also need to place your bet within seven days of using your mobile or tablet to enter the offer code to activate the promotion.
There is also a withdrawal requirement in place for your bonus bet of three times your qualifying bet, plus the bonus bet. So if you place a qualifying bet of $10 and receive a $10 bonus, you must have qualifying cleared and settled bets of at least $60 before you can withdraw any cash attributable to the bonus.
You have 90 days within which to meet the turnover requirement for the offer, otherwise any bonus funds remaining are forfeited.
Finally, when you are trying to complete the turnover requirement for this offer, any bets you make towards this must have at least one selection at odds of 1/2 (1.50) or greater included. You can make bets on lower odds options but these will not count towards your withdrawal requirement.
Can I access the On The Move bonus while my New Player Bonus is still running?
This is an important point and it is vital, especially for new Bet365 Sport customers to understand how the rules regarding bonuses work on Bet365 so they can take full advantage of this and several other offers across the range of Bet365 sites.
If you have joined Bet365 Sport (or indeed any other Bet365 site) and still have a bonus active on your account, then you will not be able to activate the On The Move bonus if you place a bet via mobile.
This is because that on Bet365 you can only have one active bonus in operation at any time across all its sites. So if, for example, you have joined via Bet365 Bingo or Bet365 Poker and activated a bonus on these sites that is still active, you cannot activate another bonus elsewhere on a Bet365 site.
However, if you joined these sites a while back and you have no bonuses active on your account, then you can activate the On The Move bonus, provided it is your first sports bet placed via mobile with Bet365.
If you are one of the increasing numbers of people who join Bet365 Sport via a mobile device, then of course, if you place a bet to activate your New Player Bonus from your mobile device, then you cannot access the On The Move bonus.
As such, to ensure you get the best of both deals, I strongly advise you to place your first bets with Bet365 Sport to activate your New Player Bonus via a desktop or laptop PC. Then when your bonus has expired, use your mobile to place your first mobile bet and this way you will qualify for both promotions.
