Bet365 has a presence in more than 30 countries around the world thanks in part to the platform’s ease of access. Besides the main desktop website, Bet365 also has dedicated mobile apps for its various gambling markets. I do all my gambling on-the-go, and I have all of the platform’s apps. Here is an honest review of my experience with the Bet365 mobile apps.

How to Download the Bet365 Mobile App
The Bet365 mobile app is available for both Android and iOS devices. The app is easy to install, but the process varies for each operating system. Following are brief installation guidelines for both Android and iOS users:
Installation on iOS Devices
I did not have trouble installing the Bet365 app on my iPhone as installation on Apple’s devices is automatic and pretty straightforward:
- Visit the Bet365 website using an iPhone or iPad and find the link to download the app – this link is in a tab labeled ‘Download App’
- Tap the ‘Download App’ tab
- The device will beging downloading the app, and afterwards it will be installed automatically
The Bet365 iOS app is available for a range of iOS devices, including the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. The app only works on iOS versions 7 and higher, and the location settings should be always turned on when installing and using the app.
Installation on Android Devices
Installation on Android devices is not as straightforward as is the case for Apple devices. Google’s policy bans various types of apps on its app store, and gambling apps, including the Bet365 mobile app, make the list. As such, I had to circumvent some of Google’s settings to get this app on my Android devices. I have broken it down for you below:
- The first step should be circumventing Google’s settings by allowing downloads and installations from unknown sources. The settings for this can be found via the following path: Settings > Security > Unknown Sources – the last option should be ticked or else the app will not install
- The app is not available on the Google Play Store, so I had to find it manually on the Bet365 website using my Android phone – again, the link to download the app is in a tab labeled ‘Download app’
- Tap this tab and wait for the app to download
- Once the app is downloaded, proceed to open the file and authorize installation
The Bet365 Android app requires Android 4.4 or higher to function. And, as is the case with the iOS version, the device’s location settings should be turned on for this app to run smoothly.
Play on the Bet365 App
As mentioned, I do most of my gambling on the go – whenever the time is right, essentially. As such, I am confident when I say that I know all the features of the various Bet365 mobile app versions intimately. Following is a count of my experience with the three most popular gambling markets on the Bet365 mobile apps.
Sports Betting on Mobile
I place most of my bets on sports after signing up at Bet365. The sports betting app gives me unhindered access to all the hot matches. The available sports markets are listed in an A-Z format for ease of access and navigation. All open markets are highlighted under each alphabet’s category. All I have to do to access a particular market is tap on it to see what’s on offer.
The Bet365 sports betting app supports live feed, so I always get updated, real-time stats on developments in the various sports markets. This also means that features such as live streaming and in-play betting are also supported, as will be discussed later.
Play Poker on Mobile
I have spent enough time playing poker on the Bet365 mobile app, and I have to say that the experience is better than the industry average. In my opinion, the playing poker on the Bet365 app is ideal for beginner and pros alike.
There are tutorials and guidelines for beginners to get acquainted with the game. Additionally, there are special tables dedicated to beginners to help them spruce up their game before sitting down with the pros. Players can also switch to the main tables at will. There are lots of poker tournaments available for both sections.
Based on how much I have learnt about poker from the Bet365 app, I would highly recommend it for novices seeking to learn.
Note: The main Bet365 app does not support all categories – there are dedicated apps for casinos and sports markets. There is a dedicated app for poker that users should download from the Bet365 website – the app’s download and installation process is similar to the guidelines given above.
Play Bingo on the Bet365 App
I am not a big fan of bingo, but I downloaded the Bet365 bingo app for the purpose of this review. The app offers a variety of bingo games with choices including the 75, 80, and 90 ball games. The bingo games run smoothly on the app. The bingo app also features several other casino games, including slots and scratch card games.
As is the case with the Bet365 poker app, there is a dedicated version for bingo. The download and installation process of this app is similar to that of all other Bet365 apps.
Live Streaming on the Bet365 App
In my opinion, live streaming is one of the most attractive features of the Bet365 app. I have often watched many exciting games on my iPad and tablet through the Bet365 app, and I cannot complain about the experience.
It is easy locating the live streaming feature on the sports betting app’s panel. The live streaming feature works for a broad range of sports markets, including soccer, football, and hockey. The games stream in real time and complementary stats are always streaming in on the side.
It is also worth mentioning that this feature also works alongside the app’s in-play betting feature. I find this feature useful for when I want to wager on ongoing games – I usually follow up on my active bets through the live streaming and in-play betting features.
There are several requirements for using the live streaming feature on the Bet365 app. The main requirement is having a funded account – if the account is not funded, then it should have been used to place a bet over the past 24 hours. A fast, strong, and secure internet connection is necessary to stream the game without buffering and down-times. Unfortunately, this feature does not run smoothly on most of the older Android and iOS devices.
Bet365 Mobile App’s Other Features
The Bet365 mobile apps provide access to all features available on the main Bet365 website, and more. This is part of what makes the app easy to use.
The cash out option is exclusive to the Bet365 app. I find that it comes in handy when I am at the end of a losing streak.
The cash out feature enables bettors to exit ongoing bets before the matches conclude – essentially, bettors can close their bets and recover some of their wager money before the bet closes. This feature is designed to help Bet365’s clients to cut their losses and get more control over their bets.
The cash out option is available for only a few select games. There also are limitations on how this feature can be used. The most important thing to know is that the refund amount is determined by two factors: the game’s progress so far, and the standing scores and odds.
Users can also set thresholds for their payout options – this means that I can choose to get all refunds as a bulk payment once they reach a pre-set target. Additionally, users can choose to leave some of the money in play and cash out only some of the money – I find this especially useful when I want to leave all of my options open. There also is automatic cash out option that takes care of everything.
Other features of the Bet365 mobile app include:
- Live Match Alerts
This feature sends real-time alerts and notifications on the development of matches on your watch. It is handy when there are multiple bets running in the background.
- Stats Radar
I often use this feature when analyzing and sizing up teams and individual players before placing important bets. This feature provides users with all data regarding a match, team, player, and virtually every other factor about an available sports market.
- Past Results Archive
In addition to stats radar, the app also provides an archive when users can store all results of past matches. This data comes in handy when making detailed analysis for important bets.
Betting on the Bet365 mobile apps is just as smooth and convenient as doing it on the main bet365 website. The mobile apps offer all of the features available on the main website – they also come with extra, exclusive, and exciting features such as the Cash Out option. The Bet365 mobile app is ideal for betting on the go.
