What Makes a Mobile Betting Platform Good?

Betting on the go and mobile betting apps are quickly becoming the norm in the UK betting sphere. Punters want to enjoy their hobby on the go without worrying about security and banking options. For us, a good betting application has to include a few critical elements that help us feel safe and secure on these mobile platforms while also enjoying them as much, if not more, than traditional online betting.

To better drive this point home, we’ve compiled a list of factors which we look at when evaluating gambling apps that go on top of our standard betting sites evaluation criteria. These factors are in our minds very important to the betting experience on mobile and are something every punting app should have.

Exciting Gameplay and Live Streaming Options

The first thing on our list has to be ‘fun’. Exciting gameplay and great user experiences are key for a good mobile app, and when it comes to gambling, it’s what keeps us playing and enjoying ourselves.

When evaluating mobile betting platforms we look for what makes that app ‘fun’ and what keeps punters hooked. One of those things in our minds has to be live streaming. Live streaming on mobile is still a very exciting feature, and when you’re allowed to not only follow your favourite sport on mobile, but also bet on the outcome, it has to be an idyllic picture.

Platform Compatibility

A sports betting app needs to support multiple platforms. In the case of apps, this includes support for both IOS and Android, perhaps even Windows Phone. It isn’t hard to make your app work on all modern phones, so for us this is an expected ‘feature’ that also shows the dedication behind the bookie to make their services available to everyone.

App-Only Offers

While apps are an enjoyable way to gamble, we want to see app-only offers that encourage punters to go out of their way to download the app to their phone and try it out. In our minds this also shows a healthy marketing attitude that’s player-friendly since the bookie is going out of their way to create special app-only bonuses and promotions. 10Bet is a good example of this with their mobile-exclusive offers which you can read about in our ‘Short App Reviews’ section below.

Best Betting Apps for Android, iPhone, iPad, Blackberry in 2018 (UK)

  1. 888 Sports App – 100% up to £100 Bonus
  2. Bet365  Betting App – Get 100% Deposit Bonus Up to £25
  3. Ladbrokes App – Bet £5 Get £20 in Free Bets
  4. Unibet – Bet £20 Get £40 in Free Bets and Bonuses
  5. Coral – Bet £10 Get £30 in Free Bets
  6. Betfred App –  Bet £10 Get £30 Free Bonus
  7. Betvictor – Bet  £/€5 Get £/€ 30 in Bonus Funds
  8. 10Bet Betting App – 50% Up to £100 Deposit Bonus
  9. Paddy power App – No Risk Get £10* in Free Bets
  10. Mansion Bet – Get up to £50 Extra Bonus
  11. Sportingbet – Free Bets Up to £50
App-Specific Features

In-line with our previous point about app-only offers, we’re also looking for app-specific features related to betting. There’s little to no reason to bet on betting apps if the features are exactly the same as on your PC. So we also look at what the app features and how it provides quality-of-life improvements to the betting experience.

For example, Paddy Power’s betting application supports Touch ID and Face ID logins which allow you to login seamlessly and bet pretty much as soon as you open the app. You can read more about Paddy Power’s offer, as well as those of other bookies, in our ‘Short App Reviews’ section below.

Social Elements

A big advantage of mobile betting is the ability to interact with your favourite hobby on the go. With that said, we also believe that bookies who go out of their way to provide a social element to their apps have the right idea in mind. We like to see some form of ‘social hub’ on a bookie app that lets us interact with other punters on the go and discuss both our winnings and losses. Something like a ‘punter’s corner’ is in our-minds a must since it helps to create a fully-fledged betting experience that totally eliminates the need for a PC.

Easy Banking Options

The whole point of betting on your mobile device is to have the freedom to interact with all the features of a bookie’s offer. Apps with no banking options, for example, are of little use and are rarely used because they’re not a fully-fledged experience. Because of the importance of banking options, we want to see easily accessible and fully supported banking on betting platforms. The best betting apps in the UK have banking fully integrated into their platform which allows punters to truly bet on the go and be able to both deposit and withdraw without having to sit at a computer.

Our Evaluative Approach

The factors discussed above are the specifics we look for when evaluating betting apps. However, this is by no means the complete evaluation criteria. We use our in-house method which you can read on our betting sites homepage.

Quickly though, the criteria we follow includes:

  • User experience
  • Sports and League Variety
  • Software Quality & App Support
  • Betting Types
  • Bonus Offers
  • Max Payout & Odds
  • Customer Support
  • Payment & Withdrawal Policies

These evaluation criteria, all the way from user experience to payment and withdrawal policies, on top of the app-specific criteria we talked about here, help us present honest betting reviews and recommend only the best betting applications.

Ladbrokes

Ladbrokes is one of the oldest UK bookmakers that’s been around since 1886. Headquartered in London, the betting giant has a rich portfolio of gambling products that range from its world-renowned sportsbook and casino to bingo, games, and poker offerings.  In 2016, Ladbrokes took over Gala Coral, and together, the two companies own betting shops in more than 3,500 locations in the UK and Ireland. As of March this year, Ladbrokes Coral Group is part of GVC Holdings.

Even though Ladbrokes started out as a traditional bookie, the betting company was quick to integrate and launch its gambling products into the betting sphere. The bookmaker released one of the best mobile betting apps for both Android and iOS-powered devices and made it easy for punters to download it. To get the app, visit the Ladbrokes official website, and under the ‘mobile tab’, you’ll find download links for different mobile devices.

The Ladbrokes sports betting app allows punters to bet on a wide variety of sports including football, tennis, rugby, basketball, and other sports. Ladbrokes has always supported horse racing. Some punters might also think that Ladbrokes is the best betting app for football, as the bookie offers good quality odds on significant football events, but Ladbrokes remains synonymous with horse racing.

The app also features a superb in-play betting product which is accompanied by the bookie’s live streaming service. To add even more excitement to live betting, Ladbrokes enabled the cash out option on plenty of live betting markets.

Punters using the Ladbrokes app can even ‘build their bet’, which is becoming a favourable feature of many betting applications today. Additionally, the Ladbrokes app is never short of excellent promotional offers – whether we’re talking about regular price boosts, ‘Acca’ insurance, or a generous sign-up offer of up to £50 in free bets.

In a Nutshell:

  • Android and IOS Compatible bookie app
  • One of the Oldest Bookmakers
  • In-App Live Streaming
  • Strong Focus on Horse Racing
  • Great Selection of Promotions
  • Licenced by the UKGC & GBGA
  • Cash Out Feature

Unibet

Unibet is the Kindred Group’s premier sports betting product. The bookmaker has over 15 million customers both from the UK and worldwide. The online sports betting platform was launched in 1999. Four years later, Unibet provided online punters with its award-winning in-play product, and in 2004, Unibet’s customers started enjoying the benefits of betting on the move thanks to the bookie’s mobile-friendly website. The bookmaker offers an extensive range of sports on which punters can place their wagers on including football, tennis, great cricket betting odds, and horse racing, among other sports. Unibet also boasts some of the highest odds on darts, as well as top-quality odds on major sporting events.

The Unibet sport betting app is available to Android and iOS device users, whereas the mobile version of the site will come in handy for those using mobile devices that don’t support the Unibet app. Using the Unibet free betting apps (both Android and iOS), punters can watch over 40,000 events thanks to the app’s live streaming service. The app features a comprehensive live in-play section that can be easily accessed from the home screen. The cash out option is available too on both in-play and pre-match markets.

Navigating the app is also very intuitive. Moreover, the app features many quick links including the popular bets tab which help punters find what they’re looking for effortlessly. Furthermore the app offers secure banking options, 24/7 customer support, and numerous exciting promos.

Overall, the Unibet sports app has an enormous potential of taking the leading position among UK’s best gambling apps as it is packed with excellent features. However, user ratings show that the app is somewhat slow and unresponsive at times. If this changes, the Unibet sports betting app could finally get the recognition it deserves for delivering an outstanding mobile betting experience.

In a Nutshell:

  • Android and IOS Compatible
  • In-play and Pre-Match Betting
  • In-Play Free Bet Club
  • In-App Live Streaming
  • 24/7 Customer Support
  • Licenced by the UKGC & GBGA
  • Cash Out Feature

Sportingbet

Sportingbet has been on the gambling scene since 1997, and in 2016, the ownership of the bookmaker has been split between two companies –  William Hill and GVC Holdings. Sportingbet is a licenced bookmaker, and it complies with the regulations set by the UK Gambling Commission, and Government of Gibraltar.  The sports betting platform also uses the latest encryption technologies in addition to working with trusted payment providers – all of which create a safe and punter-friendly gambling environment.

When it comes to betting apps Sportingbet has on offer, Android and iOS device users can use the bookie’s dedicated sports betting application. To download the app, punters should visit Sportingbet, and follow the instructions on the website. With the Sportingbet app, punters are always notified about the latest sports action through the app’s notification system. The app leaves a lot of room for personalisation with the custom toolbar feature that allows users to add and rearrange icons according to their preferences. The app is also generally intuitive as it is, but with the additional customisation tools, using the app is even more enjoyable.

For many punters, the Sportingbet app is the go-to bet app, not only because of the user-friendly interface but because of the numerous unique features the app offers. Their app supports live streams and has a cash-out feature. However, what makes this app stand out is its in-play service. Using the app, punters can bet on thousands of live events, as well as keep up with the latest scores and price changes in real time.

Placing bets on the Sportingbet app is a breeze thanks to the ‘Bet Slip’ feature. The app developers are always working on enhancing the app’s performance, and based on the app’s ratings, they’ve done a pretty good job.

In a Nutshell:

  • Android and IOS Compatible
  • Superb In-Play Betting
  • In-App Live Streaming
  • Daily Free Bet Offers
  • 24/7 Customer Support
  • Licenced by the UKGC & GBGA
  • Cash Out Feature

Bwin

Bwin is a UK betting platform that was established in 1997, and today it is a part of one of the largest gambling groups – GVC Holdings. Apart from an elite sportsbook, Bwin has other gambling products on offer too including casino, poker, virtuals, and games. The bookmaker prides on having unmatched sports coverage that includes over 90 sports. As far as fairness and security at Bwin go, the bookie is a founding member of ESSA, and it holds a licence from the UK Gambling Commission. Additionally, Bwin cooperates with industry’s leading payment providers, which is another reason why the operator is a trusted name in the gambling sphere.

The online sportsbook guarantees an incredible mobile betting experience. Not only does Bwin have an excellent mobile version of the site, but it also features dedicated sports betting apps for Apple and Android devices. Punters can download the Android sports app from the Bwin website, and this is where they’ll also find an App Store link for downloading the Bwin iOS-compatible app.

Bwin’s free online betting apps for both Android and iOS devices have an elegant design. Navigating the app is straightforward to some extent. However, because Bwin covers perhaps the highest number of sports and betting markets in the entire gambling industry, punters might need some time to get used to a slightly cluttered feel on the app. Looking at the bigger picture however, the app is still user-friendly and easy-to-use in general.

The Bwin app is one of the best gambling apps for the most popular sport, as it heavily focuses on football and provides at least 50 different markets for major football games.

Some of the most notable features of the app include full-screen live betting shows and a generous selection of in-play betting markets. The bookmaker’s app also has a handy feature called ‘Accept Odds Changes’ that saves precious seconds and makes in-play betting a lot quicker. The Betfinder search functionality is also designed to speed up the entire betting process. With Betfinder punters can look for a team or a competition, and in the search results, they’ll get all related sporting events sorted in chronological order.

In the promo section, punters will find one of the regular Bwin offers – 5 team acca insurance. New players can get a cashback if their first ever bet is a losing one and app users can also take advantage of the bookie’s odds boosts on accumulator bets.

In a Nutshell:

  • Android and IOS Compatible
  • Outstanding Selection of Sports and Betting Markets
  • One of the Best Football Betting Apps
  • In-App Live Streaming
  • Betfinder and Live Alerts Features
  • ESSA Member with UKGC Licence
  • Cash Out Feature

The bookie operates in over 90 countries, and thanks to its global presence, it offers an extensive number of sports and betting markets. 10Bet also supports a wide variety of bet types that range from singles, accumulators and system bets to handicaps, teasers, each-way bets, and active markets. The UK-licenced sports betting platform uses the latest encryption technologies in addition to working with the most reputable payment providers. All these aspects create a secure betting environment for 10Bet bettors.

When it comes to 10Bet online betting apps, mobile users can download dedicated 10Bet apps for both Android and iOS devices. Since the initial release of the 10Bet app for Apple devices, the 10Bet team has been working hard on adding more betting markets, as well as enabling the cash out feature on a more significant number of markets.

The latest feature available with the 10bet sport betting app is the pulse betting option which allows punters to experience an even more exciting live in-play adventure with progressively rising winnings. This innovative feature could easily rank the 10bet sports app as the best gambling app for football, and even as one of the best betting applications in general.

Apart from pulse betting, as well as full and partial cash out features, the 10bet sports app supports live streaming that perfectly matches the bookmaker’s extensive coverage of live betting events. The app is also packed with excellent promos that in addition to regular offers from the 10Bet site, include mobile-exclusive offers.

Betfred

Betfred is a well-known name in the gambling industry. The bookmaker’s first steps date back to 1967 when today’s gambling powerhouse was a single betting shop. The bookie did not only manage to survive for so long in the gambling arena, but the company still has what it takes to stay on top of things thanks to its popular Hat Trick Heaven and Double Delight promotions, great odds on a variety of sports, and one of the best betting apps currently available on the gambling market.

The Betfred dedicated sports betting app is compatible with Apple and Android devices and downloading it is very simple. All you have to do is visit the bookie’s site where you’ll find the download links in respective app stores.

Betfred’s app also offers the cashout feature which was available since 2015 and from our experience, when cashing out, punters are highly unlikely to experience any glitches or delays. Apart from the option of having a bit more control over their betting, Betfred also provides punters with a great-quality live streaming service on horse racing, football, tennis, and other sports. Additionally, the bookie’s in-play product is an excellent one featuring a variety of events across many different games. The app’s latest innovation is the Racing Post feature that is available for major football games. With this feature, punters can get valuable insights into a game’s stats, lineups, and more.

In a Nutshell:

  • Android and IOS Compatible
  • Betting Signup Offers
  • A Well-Known Name With an Excellent Reputation

Bet365

You can’t bet in the UK without coming across Bet365. This bookie is a leader in the bookmakers’ industry with a massive 23-million user base, holding its licences from the UK Gambling Commission and Government of Gibraltar. This gambling giant even made a commercial with Samuel L. Jackson, and it is well-known, among other things, for streaming a large number of live sporting events each year.

We can cross off mobile device compatibility from our list of necessities since Bet365 has an app available for both Android and iOS devices. The Android app can be downloaded directly from the Bet365 site, while the bookie’s app for iOS devices is available on the App Store. Bet365 has one of the best betting mobile apps that’s both intuitive and runs smoothly on all supported devices. When it comes to the selection of sports, the offer is almost the same as on the bookmaker’s website. Some of the many sports available within the app include football, basketball and tennis and can be easily accessed via the app’s ‘A-Z’ menu.

The Bet365 app is relatively easy to use, and it belongs to the tiny group of betting apps with cash out and partial cash out options. Users of the Bet365 app are delighted with the app’s interface, performance, and all available features, including their live streaming option. Additionally, the Bet365 app is safe and secure. Punters can make deposits and withdrawals using various credit cards, Neteller and Skrill, while PayPal is reserved for UK players only.

In a Nutshell:

  • Android and IOS Compatible

  • Intuitive Mobile App
  • Cash-Out and Partial Cash-Out Feature
  • Licenced by the UKGC & GBGA
  • Multiple Payment Options

Coral

Coral is one of the leading UK bookmakers that was first acquired by Ladbrokes, and then became a part of GVC Holdings in March this year. The online gambling operator holds a licence from both the Government of Gibraltar and British Gambling Commission. Apart from a mobile bet platform, Coral also has casino, poker, vegas, and bingo products on offer. The bookmaker features an excellent loyalty rewards scheme which makes betting with this operator even more exciting.

Coral features betting apps for Android and iOS devices. All you have to do to download the bookmaker’s sports app is visit coral.co.uk. Under the Mobile tab, you’ll find the download link for the Coral Sports Betting & Casino app. Here, you’ll also see the download links for other Coral apps. With the Coral app, punters can bet on a large number of in-play and pre-match markets. Thanks to the app’s logical layout, all sports available on the app can be easily accessed via an A to Z menu. The app also offers quick links for football and horse racing markets, as these two sports are the bookie’s primary focus.

Because Coral so strongly favours horse racing and football, it is no wonder that it offers hundreds of markets on significant football events, or that the app features the ‘Enhanced Offers’ section for special offers on horse racing. On top of that, Coral also offers the best betting odds for all UK races. Coral’s app also supports free live streaming allowing punters to watch nearly 2,000 events on a weekly basis including football, tennis, rugby, and other sports. Horse racing fans can enjoy live streams as well, but they need to bet at least £1 on the race they want to watch.

Coral’s live streaming service gets even better. This bookie’s app supports thumbnail view streaming, which comes in quite handy if you want to keep an eye on a race and browse through the app at the same time. Apart from all these features, the Coral app also offers full and partial cash out options. There’s also the ‘Build Your Bet’ feature which is exclusive to mobile users, and it allows punters to select a game and betting market, and create a bet of their own.

The Coral mobile betting app is undoubtedly one of the best betting apps, and the bookie’s ‘Bet and Get Club’ only makes the app even more popular among punters. By joining the club, punters can get a special bonus and for newcomers, there’s also a welcome bonus.

In a Nutshell:

  • Android and IOS Compatible
  • Free Bet Club
  • Strong Focus on Football and Horse Racing
  • Excellent Live Streaming
  • A Well-Established Bookie With a UKGC Licence
  • Great Sign Up Bonus
  • Cash Out Feature
