Check out my full review of the Bet365 mobile apps available in India for 2020.
How to download the Bet365 App – My Guide
To get going with the Bet365 mobile app experience, you, of course, need to download the relevant mobile app. There are a series of mobile apps to download including live casino, poker, casino, and sports, but the process to download them remains exactly the same.
First of all, please allow me to show you how to download the Android app:
- Visit the Bet365 mobile site from your device
- Click on the Android logo seen on the site to initiate the file download
- You will be prompted to ‘trust’ the APK file – which you must do
- Wait for the file to download, and then install it onto your device
- Log in/register to check that the file has been downloaded successfully
Now that you know how to get the app for Android, I will also show you how to get the app for iOS too:
- Open the app store from your mobile device
- Type in Bet365
- Choose your desired app (casino/sports/poker etc.)
- Wait for the app to fully load onto your device
- Register or log in to enjoy the mobile app
With the iOS app, you have the added benefit of initiating fingerprint login too, after you have logged in for the first time. This makes it even easier and even quicker to access your account.

Play on Bet365 App
Sports Bet on Mobile
Bet365 has a full catalog of sports that you can bet on from the mobile app. Some of the more popular events for India based sports bettors include cricket, football, and basketball, which are available in abundance from the sportsbook app. I saw that when there is a big event taking place, Bet365 will put together hundreds of betting markets, including bets such as moneyline, spread, outrights, and over/under markets.
How to make a bet on the Bet365 app
To make a bet on Bet365, all you need to do is ensure that you have funds in your account. As long as this is set, you can wager on anything you like. Whether it is sports or any of the casino sections, you can simply choose your stake, place your bet, and away you go. This can be repeated as often as you like, but do note – if you lose your Internet connection or it isn’t very good, you may need to try and make the bet again.
Play Bingo on Bet365 app
You can access the bingo app from the same account that you set up for sports/casino/live casino etc. There are tournaments taking place 24/7 from this app, and I’ve seen payouts that extend into the thousands for some of these events, but of course, the buy-ins are higher when the payouts are higher.
Play poker on Mobile
Bet365 has a designated poker app that you can download on both Android and iOS. Within the poker app, you can take part in tournaments, with up to 9 players per table, and the buy-ins are quite low for many of these events. This gives you a chance to experiment on the site without investing a ton of cash, and personally, I felt that the interface for the games was simple yet effective.
Best Mobile App Features
- Loading speeds
I found that the loading speeds from the app were just terrific, meaning that when switching between each page it took just seconds to do. This meant less time waiting and more time playing!
- Segregated apps
When a mobile app has all products thrown into one, it can sometimes become quite slow and difficult to navigate around. Bet365 has a separate app for each of their products, which I personally felt made it easier to use them.
- Full-screen mode
Full-screen mode can be turned on for slot games, table games, live casino games, and streaming for the many sports that they offer. All you need to do is rotate your device and the screen will adjust.
- Live streaming
You can live stream a whole bunch of sports with Bet365, and they show this by having a ‘play’ symbol next to the event. I felt that the quality of the streams was quite crisp, although they are several seconds behind the live markets.
- Ease of navigation
You are never more than a few pushes of a button away from any specific section of the Bet365 platform, which has been made possible thanks to the segregated apps.

Bet365 Mobile App Review: Other Assets
It’s easy to download the Bet365 range of mobile apps first of all, which already makes it easy to set up and access your mobile betting account. Given that I have an iOS device, I found that I could access the app through fingerprint login too, and you can even set up a 4-digit passcode to log in from the Android apps.
After opening up the mobile apps, this is where the awesome betting experience begins. I like that each of the mobile apps are separated as this makes it much easier to navigate through the products, although some bettors don’t like this. Also, on the whole, the app is highly functional with rapid loading times, regardless of which app you are actually using.
In-play betting can absolutely be done from the Bet365 sports app, and it’s really easy to make these kinds of bets. All you need to do is navigate to the section labeled as in-play, and here you should be able to see all live markets that are currently taking place. In my experience, I found that they have live markets for basically all of the popular sports on the site.
This included markets that are hugely popular in India too, such as International cricket games as well as games for the Indian Premier League. Bet365 has even gone a step further and put pre-set betting amounts alongside the in-play market, so you can make your bet even quicker. This is important for live betting of course, as markets can fluctuate and odds can change rapidly.
Live Broadcast on Mobile
Live streaming for sports is readily available from the Bet365 sports app, and let me tell you, there is an enormous selection of events for you to go for. The streaming services are typically focused around popular sports leagues from around the world, such as NBA and ATP/WTA tennis, but the streaming quality is great. You can even watch the sporting events on full screen, although it is beneficial to have a strong Internet connection to avoid any freezes or technical issues.
There are conditions to be able to access live broadcast features, however, so it isn’t 100% free. You must have some money available in your betting account, and if not, you must have placed a sports wager at some point in the last 24 hours.
It’s awesome to see that Bet365 has put together this feature from the mobile app, and I have to say it is incredibly well designed. You can just slide the bar from left to right if you want to do partial cash out, and you can instantly cash out by clicking one button if you wish. They always display the amount that you would get for either option too, which is another positive.
I found that Bet365 gives cash out options for an enormous range of bets too, including parlays, single bets, in-play bets, and the majority of other betting markets that they have available.
Bet365 App Review – Sophisticated and Professional
It’s not often that I am impressed with almost every feature of a mobile app, but Bet365 has come pretty close to full marks in every aspect here. I loved that they have taken the time and poured in the resources necessary to put together a mobile app for each product on the site, and this has greatly helped to keep things simple. As I mentioned earlier, each of these apps can be downloaded completely free of charge, and there is an Android and iOS version for each.
I would be eager to see if any betting app can come close to the quality of Bet365 in 2020, but as they always say – competition pushes the quality upwards!
