bet365 Sportsbook App in Kentucky Available for 18+ Players
bet365 has released some additional information regarding its pending launch in Kentucky, including clarification on the eligible bettors who can sign up on its platform, especially now that pre-registration is open in the state.
Unlike Caesars and FanDuel, who intend to limit their online operations to individuals aged 21 and above, bet365 has announced that just like DraftKings, it will adhere to state regulations and make its services available to players aged 18 and older.
bet365 Unveils Exclusive Promotions Ahead of Kentucky Launch
bet365 has also rolled out a pre-registration promotion in which it will grant users who register in advance $10 in credit per touchdown (up to a maximum payout of $50) scored during the Thursday Night Football game featuring the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers. Although the game may not perfectly appeal to the typical NFL fans in Kentucky, it holds significance as the first match individuals in the state can bet on once the state’s sports betting market goes live on September 28.
bet365’s regular sign-up promotion offering $365 in Bonus Bets for a single dollar bet will be available for pre-registered and new users in the state when the market opens. Bettors should also look forward to bet365’s Bet Boosts and Super Boosts promo that were part of the operator’s big promotional offers in neighboring Ohio.
We are thrilled to welcome the great state of Kentucky to bet365. With renowned products like amazing bet boosts, the fastest in-game product, and unique same game parlays, we can’t wait to bring the bet365 experience to eligible customers in the Bluegrass State.
bet365 prides itself on its extensive collection of live-streamed sporting events, although the operator does not currently feature markets in major US leagues.
With its launch in Kentucky, bet365 is now licensed in six states in the US. The sportsbook is already active in Ohio, Virginia, New Jersey, Iowa, and Colorado.
The group secured its license in the Bluegrass State through an online-only agreement with Sandy’s Racing and Gaming.
According to the timeline released by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission (KHRC) earlier this month, individuals who have pre-registered their accounts and confirmed their identity can deposit in their sportsbook accounts on September 7. Starting from this date, they can also place in-person wagers at authorized retail facilities. However, betting on legal mobile sportsbooks will only begin on September 28.
Once the market launches, bet365 will be going head to head with other approved operators in the state, like BetMGM, Caesars, DraftKings, and the newly launched ESPN BET.
