At the stage of registration at Bet365 or when getting to know the bookmaker, you must have noticed the mention of qualifying bets. It can still be found in the description to the promotional offers of the BC. If the question arises, what these bets are, how to make them and why, now we will understand. In practice, these are ordinary sports bets, but with additional requirements - now about everything in order.

Bet365 qualifying bets: terms and conditions

The easiest way to understand this type of bets is to use the example of the welcome bonus for registration. Its activation conditions are clear: replenish your account and get a deposit bonus. However, the terms and conditions mention qualifying bets. The bookmaker warns: the bonus in the amount of 50% of the 1st deposit is credited, if the bets are placed taking into account these conditions:

  • ordinal and express bets are accepted;
  • minimum odds of each outcome in the coupon x1.2;
  • within one match the status of a qualifying bet is given to the bet of the highest amount;
  • the placed bet must not be canceled, it cannot be refunded or cashout;
  • the total amount of bets must exceed the size of the first deposit at least 12 times.

What happens if I don't place qualifying bets? In this case, the bonus is not credited, and the deposit simply remains on the main balance. In this case, you lose a double benefit at once:

  • a potential qualifying bet can bring monetary profit and you will manage to increase your bankroll for further bets;
  • the welcome bonus will not be activated and you will not be able to take advantage of the 1st deposit bonus.

Qualifying bets at Bet365 are attached to most promotional offers. Therefore, there are 3 options here:

  1. Look for bonuses with no qualifying wager requirements. For example, casino freespins or tournament prizes. This can also include promo codes.
  2. Analyze the conditions of the qualifying bet. If it seems unrealistic to realize them because of inflated odds or a large number of events in the coupon, such bets are ignored.
  3. Fulfill the conditions of the qualifying bet. Here I also advise you to take into account the conditions of a particular bonus - whether it is profitable to spend money on its activation or it is better to choose other promotional offers.


The nuances do not end there. Bet365 bonuses are designed in such a way that in 90% of cases they cannot be withdrawn from your account unless you wager them first. The wagering requirements also include qualifying bets and here they must be met in order to take advantage of the bonus.

The requirements for qualifying bets may also differ taking into account such parameters:

  • type of bet - most often it is an order and express, but can be a system;
  • minimum and maximum bet size;
  • number of events in the coupon;
  • type of market - Lines or Live;
  • minimum odds of the outcome;
  • whether bets can be placed on different outcomes of the same match;
  • the timeframe in which bets must be placed;
  • available types of outcomes: for example, total or on the team's forfeit.

The qualifying bet is evaluated comprehensively, taking into account all these parameters. In other words, if at least one of the criteria is not met, the qualification is not counted. At the same time, the winnings on the qualification bet are credited to the main balance - there is no need to wager them.

I hope we have managed to understand the qualification bets. I recommend not to ignore the requirements to them, as both successful bonus accrual and potential wagering depends on it. If you still have questions, feel free to ask and let's find out what's what.
