Betting apps for Android phones FAQ

Which Android betting app has the best sign up offer?

We think Bet365 has one of the best sign up offers currently available for UK punters using Android betting apps.

Click here to read our full Bet365 app review and find out how you can claim a huge sign up bonus at this top-quality bookie today.

Are betting app apk files free to download?

Yes - it’s safe to say that if you are being asked to pay to download an Android betting app then you’re being scammed.

Where possible, you should always download Android betting apps from the official Google Play Store.

Why can’t I download betting apps on Android?

Sports betting apps have been available for download on Google Play Store since 2017. If you’re unable to download betting apps on Android, it may be because:

  • The betting site is not a licensed UK operator (and so cannot list their app on the Play Store)

  • You haven’t allowed ‘install from unknown sources’ setting (if attempting to download an apk from somewhere other than the Play Store)

  • The app is not compatible with your version of Android

  • You don’t have enough free space on your Android phone

Can I gamble with Google Play credit?

It’s not possible to gamble with Google Play credit.

All of our betting app reviews provide information on accepted payment methods for the app in question.

How to download betting apps for Android

1

Claim a sign up offer from our list of top Android betting apps

Our expertly curated list includes the best sign up bonuses currently available to UK punters. We rank them based on factors including the total value, how easy they are to convert to cash, and how good the bookie itself is overall.

2

Follow the instructions to register an account and deposit

Pick an offer and get yourself set up at that bookie. Make sure to double-check the terms and conditions of the sign up offer to make sure you qualify for it (in particular, it's worth checking whether the sign up bonus terms exclude deposits from certain payment methods).

3

Find the app on Google Play Store

Head on over to the Play Store and search for the bookie you just signed up with. For most brands, the right option will be pretty obvious but if you're in any doubt, check out in-depth review for further details on exactly which app to download.

4

Install the app

Press the big green 'Install' button and the Play Store and your Android phone will do the rest for you. Once they download is complete, open the app and sign in to the account you created in step 2. Happy betting!

Google Play Store betting apps

Google Play Store is the official online distribution service for downloading apps on Android devices.

It is possible to download Android app files from other sources, but we strongly recommend you stick to the Play Store as this is far more secure and convenient.

Betting operators can only list their apps on the Play Store if they are licensed to operate in the UK.

At bettingapps.com, we only review properly licensed operators: You should be able to find most of the apps that we’ve tested on the Play Store.

Horse racing apps for Android

We’re big fans of horse racing in the bettingapps.com office and we’ve had plenty of opportunities to try out the best Android apps on the UK market for our racing bets.

I have to admit that few of us make a decent profit from having a punt on the races (it’s hard!), but I’d say we all know exactly what makes a horse racing app for Android stand out from the chasing pack.

We think key features for a horse racing betting Android app include:

  • Good sign up bonus
  • Easy-to-navigate UX
  • Live streaming
  • Plenty of ante-post options
  • Best odds guaranteed
  • Regular promotions and offers
