bet365 are known synonymously as one of the leading online bookmakers with over 4 million registered users in over 200 countries. Their site is based around innovation, looks and feel, and it was only a matter of time before they adapted these features to the mobile betting world.
bet365 have adapted their technologies to the next level by developing a betting app which is one of the quickest and most efficient on the market. The bet365 app is well designed and extremely user friendly resulting in it receiving one of our highest ratings on Mobile Betting Guide.
To get the bet365 app right now simply click on the download button to the right of this text and you will be shown to our ‘How To Download Bet365 App‘ section offering a step by step guide to download the app straight to your phone.
Everything else you could possibly need to know about the app can be found in our bet365 mobile betting app review below.
Bonus and promotions
To accompany their outstanding app, bet365 once again deliver on the free betting bonus level as well. Up for grabs is £200 worth of free bets for every user who registers a new account today. All you need to do is simply deposit anything up to £200 and it will be matched 100% in the form of a free bet before being applied to your account.
It’s worth noting that if you register an account via the app then you may not be eligible for the bonus. It’s for this reason we recommend registering a new account via your desktop, laptop or mobile browser, then download the app and login using you details that way. The free bet can be used via the bet365 app after registration via PC or mobile browser.
Overview, Design and Feel
The whole concept for any sort of app is to offer its users a slick, slightly diluted, but straight to the point version of their actual website. bet365 without doubt have one of, if not the best betting website online at the minute with a ton of quality features and design to die for.
Their betting app on the other hand is a little less creative. Whilst the shades of grey form really nicely on their website, the smaller app version doesn’t take to these colours as well. It feels a little lifeless with nothing much interesting going on. The plus side of this is that it does reduce loading time and makes browsing markets a breeze, something we talk about later in the review.
Whilst possibly a little boring, the bet365 app is clean and functions really well.
Interface and Features
One thing the bet365 app doesn’t lack is features. Just like their website, the site has stacks of different options and markets to choose from with bet365 really pushing the boat out on what can be done with an online betting app.
At the forefront of their success over the past few years has been the inclusion of live betting and we are delighted to report that the live betting feature has been added to their betting app. You can quickly see which sports currently have In-Play markets running before clicking to see the current score and the time of the match in a live format. It’s so simple, yet so effective with the ability to open up the market to see which markets are available to bet In-Play. Kudos to bet365 on their In-Play betting feature!
Like all good betting apps should have, bet365 offer punters a ‘members’ section where you get a few options to customise your app. Its simple things like odds type (fractions/decimal), language (17 different languages to choose from) and also your time zone, all adding the customisation of the app. This section allows you to bring up your cashier, balance, betting history, terms & conditions and a contact section. It’s basically everything you would need if you ever had a problem.
One thing that is worth noting from the bet365 app is that you do get logged out an awful lot. It’s basically every time your screen goes onto lock or standby, the next time you open you will probably have to log back in. Now for security reasons we can understand why this is, but if it’s a quick bet you want to place then bear this in mind.
Also attached to their app, and something we like to see on our betting apps, is a seamless transition to their casino section. Granted at the minute is only blackjack, roulette and a slot machine in ‘Gold Rally’ but if there is something we have learned about bet365 over the years, then you can be sure this section will increase rapidly.
A timely addition to their sports betting markets is the introduction of live streaming direct from your mobile phone. You need to wager at least 50p to view the race, but what a fantastic feature to have if you are out and about and want to watch your horse run live.
Sports and Markets
The markets that are covered on the bet365 betting app are simply staggering. In fact, if there is another app with more markets then we have yet to find one. Everything on their website is available on their app with over 30 markets in total including handball, floorball and trotting, whatever they are!
The main sports markets come in the form of football and horse racing. Straight from the homepage you can see that bet365 have done all they can to accommodate punters for these markets offering ‘quick links’ a tidy little ‘UK List’ for upcoming football matches and then a handy ‘Next 3 horse races’ link quickly allows you to see the next races and open or close their markets accordingly.
Cashier, Account & Support
The bet365 app offers a really tidy cashier section for its users. Everything you need from depositing, payment methods, withdrawals and cancelling withdrawals can be found in the members section. As long as you have your personal details on hand, then it’s really all very simple to use.
As far as support goes, bet365 offer up a 24/7 contact number that you can ring regarding any issues you are either having with your app or account. We would have liked to see them introduce an easy click email address on there, especially for people who don’t want to use credit from their phone. Nonetheless, a solid support section.
Navigation and placing a bet
The speed of the bet365 app is really top drawer. It takes next to no time to load any market and you can quickly click through to where you want to be. But one of the major down points on the app comes from its navigation. There is no ‘back’ button anywhere to be had, so if you scroll through a few markets and then decide you want to go back a level then you need to go all the way back to the start. It seems a really simple feature that ultimately diminishes from the app. You can click the logo at the top to take you back to homepage, but again it’s very small and anyone with normal sized hands or larger, will struggle.
Placing a bet is simple and effective though which makes for a really pleasurable betting experience. It probably is mainly down to the fact that the app loads so quickly and each market can be read in a split second. Nevertheless, once you are on the betting slip you can simply select your stake and click place bet then you’re done. Also if you choose to stack a few bets up then your bet is stored on the betting slip, ideal if you want to apply a multiplier or coupon.
bet365 have once again continued to show why they are one of the leading online bookmakers with their outstanding betting app. The functionality and features from the bet365 app are simply superb and there are few on the market that combine and work as well this app.
It’s not perfect however and niggles such as the lack of a ‘back’ button and the somewhat dull shades of grey don’t do it too many favours. That being said, the positives massively out way the negatives for the bet365 app and with a £200 bonus up for grabs plus the inclusion of live streaming, you will be hard pushed to find a better betting app anywhere.
