Football betting apps

Want to put together a custom acca or fancy a cheeky last minute bet on the Premiership? Here’s our pick of the top 3 betting apps for football.

Bet365 review

Bet365 consistently tops reviews as the best betting app bar none. Yes, the massive £200 matched deposit bonus is a great sweetener, but there’s so much more to Bet365.

First, this is an app with a great look and feel and a really clean and intuitive interface. Bet365 offers the full range of mainstream sports and some specialised markets too, and making deposits in just about any currency couldn’t be easier - use a debit or credit card, online payment sites like Neteller or even a cheque or bank transfer to get up and running.

Available for Android and iOS, the Bet365 app has hands down the biggest number of football matches to bet on and the widest range of markets. You can literally bet on anything, from next player to score, to cards and corners. Add in live games from La Liga and the Bundesliga and Bet365 is the best site for football streaming we’ve seen.

If you like your accas big, then Bet365 offers up to 15 legs in all your accas. Snoozed through a Bore Draw? Bet365 makes it worth your while with a money back guarantee for a 0-0 result. Plus there’s a Euro soccer bonus and huge payouts that no other app can match, with a maximum payout of a very cool £2 million. Bet365 also offers full and partial cash out.

Our verdict? If you only intend to download 1 app and open one online betting account, make sure it’s Bet365.

Sky Bet review

As great as Bet365 is for the overall gambling experience, there’s a good case to be made that Sky Bet just might be the best football app out there. After all, Sky are top football broadcasters. This Android and iOS app certainly has a lot going for it, though we think the streaming on Bet365 has an overall edge.

Sign up for a Sky Bet account and you’ll get a £10 no deposit free bet up front. Opt in to the Sky Bet Club and you’ll get a free £5 bet every week during football season. Deposit methods are standard - debit and credit cards, PayPal - and are more limited than Bet365.

With its smart and easy to use interface, The Sky Bet app looks the part and is laid out really well giving a slick user experience. Placing accas is easy, as is quick coupons for major Euro leagues. With 750 matches a week and an easy to use betting slip, plus some great price boosts, it’s never been easier to have a cheeky punt on a game. You can also download the Super 6 app with its £25,000 jackpot for correctly predicting the scores of 6 matches. Sky Bet also offer cash out - here it’s called Bet Tracker.

You’d expect Sky Bet to get their football offer right, and they have. With tips from Jamie Redknapp and access to Sky Sports radio in-app, plus easy to navigate links to live in play betting there’s plenty to enjoy about Sky Bet.

BWin review

BWin have been shirt sponsors for the likes of Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, and are currently the official betting partner for Manchester Utd. They have the experience and the contacts in the game to deliver a great football betting experience.

We love the slick black and white interface of this iOS and Android app and it offers one of the most user friendly experiences around. Where BWin really scores is with European football, especially the lower leagues, as BWin release their odds three days before match day.

We also think BWin app currently offers one of the best live in play betting experiences, with some excellent odds available. The range of markets is huge and there’s plenty of information and stats on offer. We like the handy ‘Betfinder’ feature which allows you to search for the markets that interest you before placing a quick bet using the easy to edit betting slip. The smart shortcuts in this app make it a joy to use. BWin also offer acca insurance called protektor, and a really smooth cash out feature.

You can deposit through credit and debit cards, PayPal, Skrill and Neteller and even by bank transfer. There’s also live chat customer support 24/7.

But it’s the depth and breadth of information that allows BWin to really score big. With full screen streaming that’s unmatched by its rivals and plenty of live alerts, this app really does offer great usability. If you want an app that really excels at the live betting experience, then BWin is a must download.
