The Bet365 app is one of, if not the best sports betting apps on the market to date in our opinion, and that is all down to the team behind it.
Bet365 are always working to try to improve their customers mobile and online user experience. They do this by updating the app regularly, making it run more smoothly, constantly making additions to the sports markets available and more importantly listening to the feedback given to them by the users.
This is what makes Bet365 the market and world leaders when it comes to online and mobile betting. Read on for information on the bet365 app for your particular device as well as an in-depth review on what’s on offer.
Please be aware that the views expressed are our own personal views and are gathered from our own personal experiences of using the bet365 app.
List of available bet365 apps
Here is a list of the bet365 apps we have covered and some features to check out
Other Apps from bet365
Our thoughts on the Bet365 Android App
From our experience, the bet365 app is available from your Android phone via two methods;
- From your mobile browser eg. Chrome, Internet etc.
- From the Google Play Store (dedicated app)
We were able to register for a bet365 online account from the web version and then either save the bet365 home page to your device’s home screen or save it as a bookmark within our mobile browser for easy access in the future.
The method of adding a bookmark or adding to your home screen differs slightly depending on which Android device you have and which version of Android you are running.
Both adding a bookmark and adding to the home screen can be achieved from within the mobile browser’s options area. This can be found from either
- The button located to the right of the browser URL bar (represented by three vertical dots)
- A menu bar at the bottom of the screen.
- From a dedicated menu/options key actually on your device.
Once we were registered we could then go ahead and log in to our bet365 account. We like the fact that upon logging in for the first time we had the option of creating a 4 digit passcode so that access to our bet365 app account was much easier and faster in the future. This was a great time saver and yet still kept our account secure from others.
There are a few subtle differences between the dedicated bet365 Android app and the web version, which sways us to using the web version more than the dedicated app.
We weren’t too keen on the fact that the ability to zoom in on your screen is disabled on the dedicated app. This forced us to watch live streaming in a standard window and we didn’t find any option of making the stream full screen. With the bet365 Android web version, we were able to zoom in on the screen to get a larger/closer look at the action.
We also found that a DRM (Digital rights management) issue blocked our ability to take screenshots of the dedicated bet365 Android app. It seems the developers of the dedicated bet365 app have disabled the take screenshot feature in order to protect their information. This makes sharing those big weekend accumulators and winning bets with friends a tough task. No problems here though with the web version. During our testing, we were able to take screenshots as we saw fit from the mobile web version.
In terms of the visual difference between the dedicated app and web app, we found very little between it. The URL bar was missing in the dedicated app, making it look slightly cleaner, but there was no real advantage and did not change the overall appearance in terms of providing any more information, in our opinion.
We regard bet365 as one of the best apps on the market across all devices. Here we have given you the details of our thoughts and experiences from the Android version.
Bet365 iPhone App
The iTunes app store has a dedicated bet365 app, which is optimised for both the iPhone and iPad. One of the best things that we find with Bet365, no matter what device we viewed it on, we got the same great mobile betting experience.
Our thoughts on the Bet365 iPhone app
We found downloading or installing the Bet365 app very simple. Without registering we were unable to deposit or bet with the bet365 services. You can register from this page by clicking or tapping on the registration link directly below.
Once we had set up our account we then faced the option of;
- Saving the bet365 mobile site as a bookmark in our browser.
- Adding the bet365 mobile site to our home screen.
- Downloading the dedicated app from the iTunes app store.
The install method of the bet365 app is entirely down to your own personal preference. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages.
- The bookmark option is a great option for those who want to be a bit more discreet with their betting as this does not show an app logo on your home screen but does take slightly longer to access.
- The dedicated app looks a little slicker, but appears to be more prone to bugs and also takes up internal memory space.
- Adding the site to your home screen gives you the look and feel of an app by providing easy access and an app logo, but is not as discreet as a bookmark or as clean looking as the dedicated app.
Once we had registered, we had a couple of options to make the sign-in process easier than having to type in our username and password each time. We had the option of setting up a passcode or using FaceID or touch ID (if you have a faceID or touch ID compatible iOS device) whereby a simple finger or facial scan opens up your account.
When we installed the dedicated bet365 iOS app, we received access to the bet365 iPhone iOS widget. This provided us with lightning-quick access to the most popular events on at that time and will display odds for quick betting. If we made a selection we were then redirected to the bet365 app with that particular selection placed into our betting slip.
We could access the widget screen by swiping left from our locked or unlocked home screen. We couldn’t see the app widget at first and needed to enable it by tapping on the edit button located at the bottom of the widget screen.
We discovered that there are also handy subtle gesture controls built into the dedicated bet365 app that aren’t that obvious or well detailed, but made our life a lot easier. To go back to a previous page within the app, we swiped from the left-hand side of the screen to the centre. To go forwards again, we simply swiped from the right side of the screen to the centre. This saved us a lot of time when betting on multiple games and markets.
Another great little shortcut we used a lot was the force touch feature on the bet365 app (with compatible iPhones). This allowed us to get access to where we wanted to be right from the off. To view the force touch options, we had to hard press on the bet365 app logo on the apps screen.
Instead of opening the app, a little options window appeared. This window displayed the odds from key events on that particular day. It also provided us with quick access to the In-Play section, your bets, football markets, horse racing markets and the ability to share the bet365app with friends and family.
All other features of your bet365 account are pretty much standard across all other devices and can be found in our review further down this page.
bet365 Apple watch app?
We were unable to locate a dedicated bet365 Apple watch app, but that doesn’t necessarily leave your watch redundant as far the bet365 iPhone app is concerned.
Because our iPhone notifications are pushed to our watch, keeping up to date on live scores and keeping track on bets was as easy as taking a look at our wrist. We found the notifications to be fast and accurate and very handy come the weekend. A word of warning here though, If you like mega big accumulators, you may want to be choosy which games you have notifications on or you could find your eyes peeled to your watch between 3 pm and 5 pm every Saturday!
We set up the goal alerts accordingly from the bet365 iPhone app and all the scores and alerts were then pushed straight to our watch.
It’s not just goal alerts either. We found that there are a host of notification alerts that you can switch on across various sports and markets. So no matter if it’s the number of corners in a game of football, the winning amount of sets in a game of tennis or the winner of a particular quarter in basketball, bet365 will keep us bang up to date.
Bet365 iPad App
We found the iPad app to offer exactly the same features as the iPhone app, but obviously takes advantage of the bigger screen. The installation steps for the iPad app are exactly the same as the steps for iPhone and can be found in our iPhone section above.
When testing the bet365 app on iPad our screen was filled with a whole load more information without the need to scroll. We were presented with slightly differing views thanks to a dynamic screen when tilting in either a portrait or landscape orientation. In landscape mode, we had a dedicated sports menu showing on the left-hand side of the screen.
When we tested with an iPad Air or iPad Pro, we loved the fact that we had the advantage of benefitting from true multi-tasking with the app. This feature allows you to manipulate two separate applications at the same time. This is a great feature that we love as it provides you with the ability to research in to games quickly and effectively whilst evaluating odds across corresponding markets at the same time, all from the one device.
Quick links and the quick bet feature allowed us to navigate quickly and efficiently. When you’re talking about an app that allows for extensive in-play betting options the speed of the navigation at your disposal is of the utmost importance and the Bet365 app duly delivered for us.
Bet Builder lets you create the pre-match bet you want on any Soccer match.
You can select from the most popular markets and, once you have added them to your bet, you can calculate your own odds!
For example, you can choose First Goalscorer, Both Teams to Score and number of corners to create one single bet with the price for the combined selections.
You can make up to six selections to create your unique bet. Choose from a wide range of markets, including (when available on the selected fixture):
- Match Result (Full Time or Half Time)
- Both Teams to Score
- Number of Goals Scored
- Players to Score (Anytime, First, Last, 2 or More, 3 or More)
- Cards (Total, Player To Be Booked)
Make your selection and this will be added to the Bet Builder slip; repeat the process for up to five more markets and you can then calculate your own odds. Once you are happy with your bet, select the price displayed on the Bet Builder slip and the bet will be added to your bet slip.
With the fantastic Bet Builder feature, a range of offers and extensive pre-match and In-Play markets, bet365 is a great place for all your Soccer betting.
Bet Builder is only available on Soccer matches, and can only be used for pre-match markets.
Bet Builder bets cannot be combined with other Bet Builder bets or other betting opportunities and will be placed as a single bet only.
Bets placed through Bet Builder will be available for full Cash Out prior to the fixture starting. Partial Cash Out and Auto Cash Out will not be available on any Bet Builder bet and no Cash Out options will be available once the fixture goes In-Play. Bet Builder bets cannot be amended using the Edit Bet feature.
A maximum of six markets from a single match can be included in a Bet Builder bet.
If a market within a Bet Builder bet is void/pushed, then the entire Bet Builder bet will be void/pushed – e.g. if your Goalscorer selection does not play the entire bet will be void regardless of the outcome of the other selections.
The 2 Goals Ahead Early Payout offer will not apply to bets placed through the Bet Builder feature.
bet365 will not be responsible if the Bet Builder feature is not available for technical reasons.
bet365 reserves the right to reverse the settlement of a Bet Builder bet if the bet or a selection within the bet is settled in error.
bet365 reserves the right to accept or decline any bet requested for any competition or market or bet type that is included in the Bet Builder feature.
bet365 reserves the right to amend, suspend or remove the Bet Builder feature (or any part of it) at any time for any event, fixture, market or customer.
bet365 reserves the right to remove the Bet Builder feature for any customer or group of customers where it has reasonable grounds to believe that the customer or group of customers is misusing the feature.
There are many, many more features to explore with bet365. The above mentioned are our particular favourites. Give it a try for yourself and find out all that bet365 has to offer.

Bet365 live streaming review
We find the live streaming service to be a great feature addition to the bet365 app. We had no issues with the clarity of the picture across all the devices we tested on. We tested the bet365 service across Android phones and tablets iPhones and iPads and all gave a solid service when connected to Wi-Fi.
We noticed that with the bet365 live streaming service there is live video and audio which we found to be quite data intensive when out and about or connected to a mobile data network, such as 4G or 3G. Luckily we have a large allocation of data in our mobile plans which allowed us to test this, but if we didn’t we would be very sceptical about using the bet365 live streaming service on a frequent basis away from a Wi-Fi network.
We tested the service from the UK and although there are other live streaming services available we struggle to find many that compete here in terms of choice of streams available. The TV logo is dotted around across various sports that made it very clear to us which events were available to stream now (from the in-play section) and also in the future.
We also found the live streaming schedule provided by bet365 a nice touch and is great for keeping you informed on what streams are available across your favourite sport. Our overall opinion is that the live streaming service a great feature and well worth checking out if you like to watch the action unfold on the events you are betting on.
Other benefits to bet365 account holders
As listed at the top of this page, there are other apps available by the bet365 team away from sports that bring even more choice, entertainment and value to your betting experiences. Here are our findings and opinions of each app we located that offer bet365 services.

bet365 Casino app
We found four main categories at our fingertips here;
- Video slots – Over 100 differently themed video slot games available.
- Classic slots – A collection of classic, less complex slot games.
- Table and Card – The place to go for all your classic online casino games. Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat in various formats all available within this section
- Live Dealer – Classic casino games brought to you by a real human being from either Asia or Europe via video stream.
There was also a dedicated favourites section that could be found in the bottom menu bar of the app.
With so many games to choose from on this casino app, this feature was well needed. If we particularly liked a game we had tried we could highlight the star (shown for every game) that appears in the top right of the game image. That particular game was then saved in our favourites section for easier access to it in the future.
You can set deposit limits, time limits, self exclude for a given period of time or request for the account to be closed. We are all sensible gamblers here so we didn’t use these features much, but the fact the features were present reassured us that we were indeed dealing with a company that takes responsible gambling seriously.
The bet365 casino app also has a promotions section that details any offers they have on at that particular time. We found ourselves checking in to the app every now and then to see what’s new as well as to see if there were any bespoke offers that we could take advantage of. Sometimes there were, sometimes there were not. There was always an offer of some sort available, but not always suited to our style of betting or the offer was on games we weren’t that fond of.

bet365 Poker app
For those who like a bit of poker, bet365 has that covered too. A difficult task as well with Poker traditionally being somewhat of a drawn-out game over long periods of time. Bet365 have managed to create a mobile Poker platform that allowed us to play speed games, perfect for when we were on the go or on a quick break. We did also find that there was the option to play a more traditional game of poker if we so wished.
There are different styles of Poker to enjoy such as Hold’em, Omaha and Six Plus Hold’em. Six Plus Hold’em is essentially the same as traditional Hold’em, only with the twos, threes, fours and fives removed from the deck. This makes a more exciting game but adjustments to your play need to be made as better hands come out more frequently.
We were faced with a choice of tournaments, sit and go, speed tables, cash tables as well as getting involved in Twister Poker. Twister Poker is short-format games where the pot is generated at random on a spin of a wheel and can give you prize pots of thousands from a very small buy-in.
In terms of the actual game table, we had plenty of options to personalise the experience. We could choose our own nickname, avatar image, type of deck design to create the image or feel to our own preference. The cashier is situated within the bet365 poker app so we didn’t have to leave the app in order to withdraw or deposit, making it a much safer process.
The table appears only in portrait mode, which can be a little inconvenient when out and about but overall we didn’t really have any issue with this. A very enjoyable app in our opinion and well worth having alongside the sportsbook if like us, you like your poker.

bet365 Bingo app
bet365 cater for bingo fans looking for easy access to a mobile bingo app. Within the Bet365 app, we found great social features, loyalty rewards, value tickets and brightly coloured themes.
The bingo app is available across iOS and Android and our iOS testers also benefitted from having the ability to enable touch ID for added security (on compatible devices). This was found to work effectively and definitely speeded up the signing in process.
All we had to do was tap on the Use Touch ID button which presented itself upon logging in for the first time the traditional way and we were then able to access the app quicker, whilst keeping it safe from others who may come in contact with our mobile device.
bet365 Live Casino app
Our bet365 account opened up the opportunity to play and watch streams across Asia and Europe of live casino tables with live croupiers with the bet365 Live Casino app. here we had a choice of Baccarat, Roulette, Blackjack or Hi-Lo and there were a number of different tables to choose from within each category. There were male and female croupiers available, as well as the option to not view the live stream, yet remaining involved in the betting action via a digital graphic.
The Live casino tables could be viewed in both portrait and landscape modes, with the option of having the main focal point on either the live stream or the game table. This suited all our preferences here and catered for pretty much any situation.
Some live casino tables were available on the standard bet365 casino app, but we preferred the bet365 Live Casino app for actual live casino gameplay as this provided a more concentrated, classier app that specialised solely in streaming live casino tables.
bet365 Vegas app
We would define the bet365 Vegas app as specialising in Vegas-style arcade slots that provide different themes and different sized jackpots. Here we found your more traditional looking digital slot machines. The graphics didn’t blow us away, but were still brightly coloured and gives more of a feel that you are actually playing on a real slot machine rather than a computer game, which we quite liked.
There was lots of choice in terms of slots available and some slots can be played in both portrait and landscape. We thought the landscape mode was by far the better way to enjoy the experience, but it’s handy to have the option of tilting to portrait as and when required.
bet365 Games app
The bet365 games app provided us with quirky themed games in the form of slots, giving us even more chance to win big jackpot prizes. There was a bit of cross-over here between some of the other casino-style apps from bet365, but overall we found the app to be nicely compiled in a format that works for those who regularly play on slots and similar types of gambling games. Graphics are a little richer here than what you will find within the Vegas app and there were film titles and cartoon-themed games that we recognised and wanted to explore further.
Bet365 8 Immortals app
The last app in this list is an immersive slots story game with an oriental theme. This game is exclusive to bet365 and includes 4 different slot reel games within the one story. With more characters and slots on the horizon to be added to the (4 or more if the title of the app is to hold true!), it probably makes sense to have this game series8 as a separate stand-alone app. The four slots currently available within the 8 Immortals app are;
- 8 Immortals – A 15 line slot reel that uses the 8 characters faces as icons on the reels themselves.
- Fight for the Dragon Girl – A Dual 20 line slot reel dedicated to the character Han Xiangzi.
- Trials of Li Tieguai – A standard 20 line slot reel that sees Li Tieguai search for eternal life.
- Awaken the dragon – A 5×5 slot reel that gets close and personal with the character Lu Dongbin.
There’s a mini jackpot, major jackpot and mighty jackpot to be won with hundreds of thousands of pounds up grabs if you are lucky enough to swoop the mighty one!
Updates To The bet365 Smartphone Apps
From constantly reviewing the bet365 app we have experienced updates to be of a frequent nature. We see a lot of routine ‘bug fix’ updates as well as some major updates that add new features from time to time. there are obvious updates that we can tell have arisen due to listening to customer feedback as well as new features and promotions that have been created on the back of keeping an eye on what their competitors are doing well at. From our experience if there are any annoyances that crop up or if people think there is something missing with any of the bet365 apps, then bet365 are quick to respond to try and rectify the situation.
We try our very hardest to keep our reviews up to date, but you should be aware that updates could have occurred since we have had a chance to update our review.
If there are any features that you particularly like, or alternatively issue with the app that we have not addressed, please feel free to raise them through our twitter feed. You can contact and follow us on Twitter at @Bettingappscom
