Frequently asked questions

What is the best betting app in New Zealand?

From our independent ratings, we have selected the bet365 app as the best overall betting app. This is due to the stability of the platform along with how easy it is to register, deposit and bet. It also offers excellent responsible gambling features.

Are the odds different on betting apps?

No, the odds for the desktop site, betting app and mobile site are all the same.

Why do the odds change in live betting?

If you’re betting on an app with live betting you many notices the odds change before you get the bet placed and you have to reconfirm. This is due to the changing conditions affecting the odds. This can be a thing such as goals scored, runs scored, wickets are taken and time changes. It’s perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.

What are bet builders?

Bet builders are becoming very popular across betting apps. They allow you to place multiple bets on the same game. Football is by far the most popular sport for this type of bet followed by cricket and tennis.

Can I cash out on betting apps?

Yes, all the betting apps we feature have different cash out options. On most apps, you need to go to either the cash out tab at the bottom or into my account and then my bets to see your offers. Some also have partial cash out options available including Bet Victor and bet365.
