We have selected our list based on our own set criteria which you can see below. We believe these are the best betting apps for punters in New Zealand.

Our guide to betting apps

Here we cover everything you need to know to get started with betting on your phone!

iPhone & iPad betting apps

In New Zealand i0s devices have 40% of the market share. Apple’s rules on real money gambling vary greatly from Android so you will find a number of iPhone betting apps on the App Store (Guide is here – gambling is 5.3 on the list). These apps are all free to download to your device.

The main rule is they have to be a correctly built native app rather than based on a mobile site or browser. This gives you more reassurance that the app is built specifically for your iPhone and for customers in New Zealand.

This allows the betting companies to focus the home page and menus on more popular sports such as rugby or cricket. It also means if the All Blacks are playing or any other home sports team they will be on the home page when you open the app.

We have a separate rating purely for iPhone betting apps. You can see our top 5 below based on this platform.

Top 5 apps – on purely i0s rating

  1. bet365 iPhone app – (Download from the app store here)
  2. Bet Victor iPhone app
  3. Betway iPhone app
  4. William Hill iPhone app
  5. 22 Bet iPhone app

Features

  • Customisable notifications
  • Pin, Touch ID & Face ID for secure login
  • Live streaming of various sports – Varies by location
  • Deposit via Apple Pay – Varies by app
  • iWatch integration

iPhone is, in our opinion, the best place for gambling apps!

Android betting apps

In New Zealand, the only Android betting apps you can access are mobile browser-based ones. Google is very strict on allowing real money gambling on their platform and there is only a couple of countries in the world where they allow this.

We have tested all the major bookmakers on an Android device to find our top 5. These can all be side installed as a quick link in your device as we show you how below. They operated in a very similar way to a standard app but don’t take up any memory and do not require updating.

  1. bet365 Android App

  3. Betway Android App
  4. 22bet Android App
  5. William Hill Android App

How to install Android betting apps

For these yo will need to head to the mobile home page. Here if there is an APK download available it will flash up for you. If not then tap the more button on your phone and then “add link to home”. This will generate an app icon on your phone that will load the browser when tapped for quick access.

Features

  • Live streaming – Varies by app
  • Secure logins via Google login manager
  • Access casino & poker games from the same account (Where available)

Compatibility

As these are browser-based there is no need for the latest software or processor.

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.
