Bet365 Mobile App
Bet365 can boast with having probably the most advanced mobile betting app on the Internet on a technical level. It also has all the features you need to never think about using the desktop website again. It’s only appropriate for one of the leading and biggest online bookmakers to have such an almost spotless app.
With bet365’s mobile app you can claim all the special offers available to desktop users like the Euro Football Bonus, Tennis Accumulator Bonus, Euro Basketball Bonus, Parley Bonus, the Bore Draw Money Back, and even the welcome offer of £50 on first deposit. You can also bet on everything you see at the website, including football, horse racing, greyhounds, Australian racing, and other.
Bet365 Mobile App Review
Bet365 like to position themselves as market leaders when it comes to live betting and it’s true that they have a huge set of in play markets for every day of the year. But, to back up that choice they need to have an app that ticks all of the boxes in terms of speed and functionality.
So how does that app fare in the market? We tested bet365’s mobile offerings to see for ourselves.
How to Install the Mobile App for iPhone
FIRST STEP: If you don’t have bet365 account, create a new one and pick up your bonus.
From your iPhone, go to the app store and search for bet365, the sports betting app will come up by default so simply click on the cloud and the download process will begin.
Once the download process is complete, the regular home page will now show up in your browser.
If you have already signed up, click on the login button on the top right hand corner of the home page and enter your details. You’re now ready to browse and bet on thousands of markets, both in play and ante post.
Bet365 App for Android and iPad
FIRST STEP: If you don’t have bet365 account, you can create a new one and pick up your bonus.
Our download was carried out via an iPhone but it’s just as easy to get the app on your android phone or an iPad or any other tablet device.
Proceed to the app store, search for the exact term bet365 and the sportsbook version of the app will appear before anything else. Click on the download button and the app will be available in a short space of time.
If you can’t find the Bet365 App in app store:
- Create a Bet365 account.
- Go to the bottom of the Bet365 mobile website and click on the “View all Bet365 apps”.
- Choose an app and download it.
- Install the chosen app on your phone. If necessary, configure your Android’s security settings as click on “Settings” and then on “Security”. Click on “Unknown Sources” and then “OK”.
- Finally, log in your account and start playing.
Site / App Features
Available sports feature on a bar in the middle of the page. Simply scroll across and click on the sport that you want to bet on. In this case we have chosen cricket.
Alternatively, you can click on the A – Z button for sports in the top left of the page and available markets will then come up in alphabetical order. As with the main site, simply choose your outcome and add it to your betslip before selecting the amount of your stake and then confirming.
Essentially this is a mini version of the main site with all of the same functionality. Sports are laid out in a logical order and you can deposit and seek customer service options in the same way that you would with the standard static site.
When we tested the app, we found that pages loaded instantly, even in areas where we knew that we didn’t have a fast connection so the speed element was very impressive indeed.
We always recommend that you update to the latest version of your iPhone or Android device but there are some minimum system requirements that you will need in order to ensure that the bet365 app functions correctly.
The oldest Android OS version that is currently supported by the app is 4.4 so you should be able to access the site and all of its features as long as the smartphone that you own is more recent than 2013.
For the iPhone, make sure your device is updated to iOS9 as a minimum in order to enjoy all of the benefits that the app can provide.
Payment Method Through Mobile Devices
There is a wide choice of options for anyone looking to deposit or withdraw to their bet365 account via the app. These start with debit and credit cards and the operator will also accept PayPal as a funding method.
In addition, you can access your account via the app using Apple Pay, PaySafe, Skrill, Neteller, Pingit’s pay by bank app, Entropay, Bank Transfer, Wire Transfer and even cheque. Minimum deposit in each case is £5.00.
App users shouldn’t be penalised with a restricted set of funding options and that isn’t the case here so this is a real positive for all users of the bet365 app.
Watch Live Sports on Your Smartphone
For many users, the real bonus with this app is the ability to watch one of the biggest ranges of live sports on your iPhone, iPad or Android device. As perceived market leaders in live betting, it’s important for bet365 to back that claim up with an extensive live streaming service and we found that to be the case.
Football is a big focus here with many live Premier League matches available along with others from top divisions around Europe and beyond. Many other sports can also be accessed including tennis, golf, darts and more while there are daily horse races available to watch.
And, even if there is a game or event that isn’t being picked up by the bet365 live streaming service, you should be able to get live score alerts so you should always be able to keep in touch with your favourite sports when you’re on the go.
When using any sportsbook app, the keys to an enjoyable and efficient service are speed and functionality. In terms of speed, all of the click throughs that we made were instant so there were absolutely no issues on that score. We were able to move around the site with ease, everything was easy to find and speed was optimum.
In terms of functionality, this is essentially just a trimmed down version of the main site and that’s what we are really after. All of the markets, help facilities and payment options are the same whether on app or on the main static site. A big bonus is also the live streaming and those live alerts which just help to complete what is a great all round package for one of the best sportsbook apps available.
