bet365 is a real rags to riches story, it was founded in 2000 in a portakabin in Stoke by Denise Coates. She developed a sports betting platform and trading team to launch the business online in March 2001. The business borrowed £15 million from RBS against the family's betting shop estate which had been started by Peter Coates in 1974 and had been run by Denise Coates as Managing Director from 1995. bet365 saw the market was moving increasingly online and sold its betting shop chain in 2005 for £40 million to Coral and paid off its loan to RBS.
bet365 has grown into one of the world’s largest online gambling companies with its reported figures to March 2010 showing sporting bets at £5.4 billion, revenues of £358 million, and an operating profit of £104 million.
Denise Coates, Joint Chief Executive, continues to run bet365 and is the majority shareholder with 50.1% of the shares. Her brother John, Joint Chief Executive, runs the business alongside her, with her father Peter holding the position of Chairman
