In the U.S., most people focus on the four “major” sports when betting, but around the world, there are other sports that generate plenty of interest, and that means opportunities to earn for a gambler who knows what he or she is doing.
If you want to venture outside of baseball, football, hockey, and basketball, Bet365 has a set of offers as diverse as the sports landscape outside the mainstream.
Wild Game: Rugby
It’s a wild, violent game to watch, but whether you’re a rugby fan or just looking for some hard-hitting to bet while waiting for football season to start again, Bet365 makes rugby betting easy.
If you bet a full-game or second-half result on any English Super League, Australian NRL, or Super Rugby Pacific game and it’s tied at the end of regulation, that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck.
Bet365 offers Extra Time Extra Chance, meaning your bet lasts as long as they’re still playing.
Betting on Bets and Nets: Tennis
If you want to bet racquets and nets, Bet365 has sweetened the pot with options for tennis as well. If you bet a pre-match parlay on any tennis match, you can get a parlay bonus.
All you need to do is bet at least two legs on one of the tennis markets—Money Line, First Set Money Line, or Set Betting.
If you win, along with your earnings, you’ll get a bonus of between 5 and 70 percent, with the amount rising depending on the number of legs you bet.
The match can be singles or doubles, men’s or women’s and the offer holds for any WTA, Challenger Tour, ATP, or Grand Slam event, as well as Davis Cup and Billie Jean King Cup.
Bet365 also offers a bit of insurance, to help you avoid the frustration of an early ending.
If you bet an individual player, either as a straight bet or a leg of a parlay, and that player’s opponent retires due to injury or illness, Bet365 will consider that a win and payout to you.
If the player you picked is the one that retires, it doesn’t get marked as a loss. The match will be treated as a no-action, and you’ll get back your stake.
