You’ll find full details of the bet365 mobile app for both Android and iPhone right here in this comprehensive bet365 app review.
If you don’t have it yet then now is a perfect time to join. Read on to discover why we believe it’s one of the best betting apps you can get on any phone…
Key Features / Benefits
The Stoke-on-Trent based company was established back in 2000. Fast forward to 2020 and they now have millions of users from every corner of the globe, all keen to take advantage of the many offers, bonuses and other benefits that come with betting at bet365.
There are loads of reasons why bet365 blows their competition out of the water, and in this bet365 review I’ll be listing as many of these as possible. But in my opinion, the key highlight of their service is they way they look after their existing customers.
Their new customer offer is great, but no other mobile betting site can match the range of special offers and bonuses that bet365 have. You can also benefit from a live streaming service that’s second to none, allowing you to watch all your favourite sports on the go.
Let’s start with the bet365 app download instructions, and then look at some of the benefits you’ll get once it’s installed.
How To Download & Install The bet365 App
Here’s a quick step-by-step guide explaining how you can download and install the bet365 app on any mobile device in less than 5 minutes.
How To Download on Android / iPhone
- Visit the bet365 website on your mobile browser
- Follow the steps to open a new account – it takes around 2 minutes to register.
- Log in, scroll to the bottom of the screen and select view all bet365
- Pick sports at the top of the list (or you can choose to play at the casino, bingo or poker – whatever your preference)
- Click download and wait for the app to appear on your mobile device
This is the quickest and easiest way to get up and running. You should be able to get the Android app installed on any Android device in less than 5 minutes. Likewise the iPhone app should take about the same time.
Of course, you do have the option of going to Google Play or App Store and trying to find the right app on there. However, I found doing that was a bit of a nightmare for a few reasons.
Firstly, the search on both of these marketplaces turns up a lot of results, including some fake apps. So it’s hard to spot which one you actually want.
Secondly, it’s much easier to register an account on the website rather than doing it through the app, which takes a lot longer. So for both these reasons, it’s much quicker, easier and safer to go to the bet365 website and download the app direct from them.
bet365 Mobile Website / App Design
You can access all the betting markets, features and live streaming via either the bet365 app, or the HTML5 responsive bet365 mobile website.
Both of these look great on Android and iPhone screens, so it’s entirely up to you which one you want to use. The Android app obviously gives you a handy shortcut straight from your home screen, whereas if you use the bet365 mobile site you don’t need to download anything. So there are advantages to both.
In terms of performance, there isn’t much difference between the two. Both are very good. They ran fast on both brand new and older mobile phones in our lab, and there was no noticeable degradation in performance when the app was running in the background.
The only time we noticed a lot of resources being used was when we were watching live streaming. This is totally normal with any live streaming service, not just bet365. It’s also not really an issue, because when you’re watching sport that’s all that’s on the screen, so you’re not really trying to do anything else at the same time except maybe place bets or cash out in-play while you watch!
In terms of design, I found both the bet365 mobile app and website just as easy to use as the full desktop site, and I had no problems navigating to the markets I wanted or getting bets placed.
Choice of Markets
It’s a well known fact in the online gambling industry that bet365 offer probably the biggest choice of betting markets. The bet365 mobile app gives you access to all of them in the palm of your hand.
You’ll be able to place bets on all the top football tournaments including the Premier League and Champions league. There’s worldwide horse racing, tennis, cricket, golf, rugby, greyhounds, basketball – in fact there’s too many sports to list, but you get the idea.
They support all the bet types you’d expect, including singles, each way, accumulator bets, forecasts, Asian handicaps and many more besides. There’s also the ability to cash out in-play on many live betting markets.
Although they’re best known for betting on sports events, Bet365 also offer online casino games and a poker site, all of which can be accessed using the same account.
It’s fair to say you’ll be spoiled for choice here.
If you need any help or have any questions, bet365 support are available 24/7 to handle any customer queries. You can contact them by phone, e-mail or my preferred method which is live chat.
The live chat support is available through the bet365 mobile app or their website. I tested this, and was connected to a customer service rep within a few seconds. I found the operative was friendly and quite helpful. I deliberately asked a few fairly obvious questions that a new customer might ask, and was given accurate responses that were explained clearly.
Overall this was a very positive customer support experience.
Banking – Deposit/Withdrawal Options
As you would expect from a company of bet365’s size and reputation there are lots of payment methods available via the bet365 mobile app.
They’re all secure and reliable, no matter what one you choose. Credit and debit card transactions work for most customers and give instant access to your funds, but you usually have to wait 3-5 days on withdrawals hitting your bank account. Also, credit card deposits are no longer permitted for UK customers (by law).
New e-wallet services such as PayPal also allow you to make your deposits in seconds but you can get your hands on your winnings a lot quicker. Some third party payment methods do add a handling charge at the other end, so be sure to do your research first and always check the fine print.
Withdrawal and Deposit methods available include:
Debit cards, PayPal, PaySafe card, Skrill, Neteller, Entropay, Fast Bank Transfer
Safety & Security
As the UK’s largest online bookmaker, bet365 are fully licensed by the UK Gambling Commission. I was delighted to see that their license is completely clean, with no sanctions or other actions recorded. This is something I always look for and it confirms that a company plays fair.
They’re also members of the Independent Betting Adjudication Service. As the name suggests, this is an independent body who can arbitrate in the case of any disputes. Membership of IBAS is voluntary, not compulsory. If a bookmaker chooses to join, it shows in my opinion a willingness and dedication to always treat people fairly.
For these reasons I have absolutely no doubt that betting on the bet365 mobile app is a safe experience and as secure as it can possibly be.
Frequently Asked Questions
To finish off, I’ll answer the most common questions that users have when downloading or using any of the bet365 apps.
What Is The bet365 Free Bet?
It’s not a free bet as such, but they do offer a generous new customer offer.
The current deal is: Up to £100 in Bet Credits
The key Terms & Conditions are: Open Account Offer. Up to £100 in Bet Credits for new customers at bet365. Min deposit £5. Bet Credits available for use upon settlement of bets to value of qualifying deposit. Min odds, bet and payment method exclusions apply. Returns exclude Bet Credits stake. Time limits and T&Cs apply.
What Is The bet365 Bonus Code?
In order to claim the bonus described above, you will usually need to enter a bonus code after you have made your first deposit. The code is unique to you, and it will be sent to you by email as soon as you’ve registered.
So once your new account is open, you can go ahead and download the bet365 app and install it on your phone. As soon as you’ve done that, check your e-mail and chances are the code will already be waiting in your inbox. Simply enter it in the space provided when you make your first deposit, and you’ll be on course to receive the bonus.
What Are The System requirements?
Again, this is always being updated to keep it relevant but at the time of writing I found that to use the bet365 mobile app on Android, a device running operating system v4.0 or newer is required. To watch the event of your choice, you’ll need an iOS 5 or newer. You can check the iOS version history to check which type your device has if you’re not sure.
The mobile website can be used on the following devices –
Samsung, HTC, Huawei, Sony, Acer, any Apple iOS handset or tablet. There’s lots more too, just check the site to see if you’re covered.
Can You Cash Out On The bet365 app?
Yes, this fantastic feature gives you more control over your bets and offers you an opportunity to take a return before an event has finished. When this feature is available you can Cash Out a bet in its entirety or just partially, whilst leaving the remainder of your stake to run.
You can also create a request for your bet to automatically Cash Out entirely or for a partial amount, where the amount offered reaches a chosen value.
How Do You Watch Live Streaming on the bet365 Mobile Site & App?
Live video can be viewed on the In-Play page by using the drop down menu directly above the stream and selecting the event you wish to view. Navigate to the In-Play betting on that event and select Watch to get the video to appear (on Tablet, the pictures will automatically appear when on the event In-Play).
On Desktop, you can lock your stream by clicking the pin icon which will allow you to keep watching your chosen stream whilst you navigate around the In-Play page. To enlarge the stream, simply use the arrow icon found above the pin icon.
This is a great way to place a bet on an event while you actually watch the match live. It’s the ultimate gambling experience.
What Are The Live Match Alerts?
The Match Alert service is available via the bet365 App and allows you to keep up-to-date with your selected sporting action. Once you have installed the bet365 App, you must ensure that you allow push notifications to your device when prompted in order to successfully receive the alerts.
Alerts are sent directly to your mobile device and you can select the type of notifications you wish to receive.
How Does The Edit A Bet Feature Work?
Edit Bet gives you the ability to add, swap or remove selections and increase the stake on unsettled bets both pre-match and In-Play. You can also use the feature to change your bet type to any applicable multiple option. For example, you have the ability to turn your unsettled treble into three doubles.
What Are The Maximum Winnings?
There are maximum winnings limits that apply to bet365 bets within any 24-hour period and the limit will vary dependent on the different events you have bet on. Where a multiple has been placed involving events with different maximum winnings limits then the lowest limit will apply.
I’ll finish my bet365 app review by simply saying that in my opinion this is the best app for sports betting in the UK and Europe. There’s no one out there who do a better job at taking bets, offering varied markets and presenting customers with the latest advances in sports betting.
