bet365 app review

All of the UK team had the bet365 downloaded and were regular users before we even started research for this particular review.

Basically, we agree that bet365 is as good as everyone else says it is.

Example screenshots of the bet365 app on google pixel

The bet365 app is top, top quality.

There’s loads of neat features on the app that complement an absolutely massive selection of markets and the odds on offer consistently provide some of the best value available to UK punters.

In-play betting is a cornerstone of the bet365 mobile experience:

UK punters can track bet progress, watch live streams, edit bets in-play, and partially or fully cash out.

Pre-match betting options are top-quality, too. The football coverage is phenomenal and bettors who prefer racing, tennis, or niche sports will also more than likely be able to find what they’re looking for on the bet365 app.

The welcome offer is one of the most generous around.

While the new customer sign up bonus is great, it’s clear that offers are not a central focus for bet365. However, those that do feature on the app, like acca boosts and early payouts, provide great flexibility.

In terms of usability, the bet365 app makes up for a somewhat boring design by ensuring it’s super-simple to navigate with clear menu structures, useful search functionality and ways to save or bookmark certain markets or bet types (plus personalisation options).

How do I install the bet365 apk?

We recommend you install the bet365 apk directly via Google Play Store:

  1. Search for ‘bet365’ in the Play Store
  2. Select ‘bet365 Sports Betting’ published by Hillside Technology Limited
  3. Click install

If you install the apk via an unofficial channel can be dangerous - there’s no real reason to do that if you can find the bet365 app on the Play Store.

What is the bet365 app download size?

The current bet365 app file sizes for Android and iOS are as follows:

  • Android: 19MB
  • iOS: 38.1MB

Key features

Incredible live betting options

Bet365 was one of the pioneers of in-play betting in the UK market and their live betting product still ranks among the best of the best.

You’ll do well to find more in-play markets available on more events than are available to bet on at bet365.

Great for live streaming

One of the reasons bet365 is such a standout option for in-play betting is the depth of its live streaming catalogue.

Provided you have a funded account, there are opportunities to watch live action across a truly impressive range of sports and competitions (including many of the world’s biggest football leagues)

Early payout promos

Bet365 doesn’t necessarily have the most existing customer promotions, but the focus is definitely on quality over quantity.

That's no better demonstrated than by the early payout offers, which enable players to lock in a full payout if their team builds a comfortable lead, regardless of the final outcome of the match.

Great bet builder options

Most big betting apps have a bet builder of some description these days.

The easy navigation around bet365’s markets make its bet builder an absolute dream to use. It’s particularly good for US sports like NBA and NFL because of the many player props options.

bet365 Offers

There are plenty of offers for both new and existing players on the bet365 app which you can utilise to maximise your returns.

bet365 free bet offer

Bet £10 Get £30 in Free Bets

We think the best offer currently available at bet365 is the welcome bonus for new customers. Reasons why we think this offer is fantastic:

  • Low minimum deposit (£5)
  • Low qualifying bet odds (1/5 or greater)
  • 500% free bet bonus
  • Bet credits can be used on some other offers (including bore draw money back)
Claim £30 offer

Min deposit requirement. Free Bets are paid as Bet Credits and are available for use upon settlement of qualifying bets. Min odds, bet and payment method exclusions apply. Returns exclude Bet Credits stake. Registration required. T&Cs, time limits and exclusions apply.

bet365 bonus code

You don’t need to waste time searching for bet365 bonus codes to access the best offers on the bet365 app.

The bet365 offers are available without a bonus code being necessary.

That includes the sports betting welcome offer, all sports betting offers for existing customers, and the casino welcome offer (just remember to select the ‘New Player Bonus’ box when making your qualifying deposit on the bet365 casino app).

bet365 promotions

The Bet365 app has a great selection of promotions.

There might not be many ‘in-yer-face’, straight-up free bet offers for existing customers, but there are certainly a few nice little promos that will help you eke out that extra bit of profit or avoid losses - including:

  • Early payout offers on football, baseball ice hockey and NBA
  • Football, tennis and multi-sport accumulator bonus
  • ITV Racing 4/1 offer
  • Racing price promise
  • Best odds guaranteed
  • Bore draw money back
  • Enhanced prices
  • Each way extra

Bet365 has some truly handy promotions available to existing customers

As you can see, there’s lots to choose from. However, if you pushed the esteemed team to pick a couple of our favourites, we’d plump for the below:

bet365 early payout

You’ll never experience the agony of snatching a losing bet from the jaws of victory on the bet365 app thanks to this early payout offer.

Place a pre-match full-time result/money line bet and, if your team is a long way ahead in the match, Bet365 will pay out in full even if your selection goes on to draw or lose.

Here’s the sports on which this offer is currently available:

  • Football (paid out in full if your team goes 2 goals ahead)
  • Baseball (paid out in full if your team goes 5 runs ahead)
  • Ice hockey (paid out in full if your team goes 3 goals ahead)
  • Basketball (paid out in full if your team goes 18 points ahead)

bet365 best odds guaranteed

You can get best odds guaranteed on selected horse races on most of the big UK betting apps, but there are a few of things that set bet365’s BOG offer apart from the rest:

  • The offer applies to bets placed up to 10:00am on the day of the race. This gives you way more opportunities to pick out the best prices than on other sites that only offer BOG on bets placed, for example, the day before the race.

  • The bet365 BOG offer also counts when a Bet Boost is applied to the win and each way market.

  • The offer includes board prices, bet365 early prices as well as Showcast bets on any eligible race where a fixed price is offered.

Sports betting on the bet365 mobile app

Yeah, the offers and promotions are great, but what’s the actual sports betting like on the bet365 app? After all, everything else would all be a bit pointless if the actual wagering was rubbish.

Happily, in our opinion, the sports betting experience on the bet365 app is pretty much second to none in the UK market.

Bet365's market selection is near enough unbeatable in the UK market

The selection of markets, the in-play betting experience, the odds on offer, the mobile UX - the bet365 app is either the best or close to the best on so many of these factors.

bet365 inplay

In-play betting is a staple of any worthy UK betting app these days but that hasn’t always been the case.

There is an absolutely enormous selection of in-play betting markets open at any one time - in fact, you’re unlikely to find a betting app that has more in-play options than bet365. The choice is not restricted to the major sports, either:

Industry leader

Bet365 was one of the early pioneers of in-play betting products and it remains one of the best in-play products around.

At the time we reviewed this app, on a very normal Friday lunchtime, events available for in-play betting on bet365 included volleyball, futsal, League of Legends esports, NRL and more in addition to the sports you’d expect to see like football and tennis.

The live streaming options are hard to beat too. Football, esports, tennis, greyhounds, racing, and lots, lots more can be streamed live by punters who log in and have a funded account.

Bet365 cash out and partial cash out


One of the great recent innovations in in-play betting is cash out - the ability to cash out your bet before the event has ended so that you can restrict losses or, ideally, lock in profits regardless of the final outcome.

Where some betting apps go a step further - and bet365 falls into this category - is by offering partial or fractional cash out. With partial cash out, you can ‘sell’ part of your bet back to the bookie and keep some of it riding.

Partial cash out is the ultimate in in-play flexibility and it’s super easy on bet365 thanks to the great inplay odds on offer and simple app UX.

bet365 football

The bet365 app is something of a football betting paradise.

⚽ Huge selection matches
⚽ Loads of live streaming
⚽ Great bet builder
⚽ Good range of promotions

The first thing that is truly standout on the bet365 app from a football bettor’s perspective is the sheer volume of matches where markets are available.

Ever wanted to bet on Mauritania Divison 2 or the Costa Rica U20 League? The bet365 app has all this and much, much more.

That’s not just for pre-match betting, either. A large number of these fixtures - even the ones from the most obscure corners of the football world - go in-play on the bet365 app.

We’ve discussed bet365’s in-play betting credentials more broadly above, but football is arguably the sport where this betting app’s in-play prowess is best demonstrated.

Odds are quick to update and generally offer good value when compared with other in-play football sportsbooks. There’s also a great selection of different betting options, including an excellent choice of asian handicap markets.

The layout of the app makes these markets easy to navigate and even the in-play graphics pop out nicely in a way that makes potentially overwhelming information easy to decipher.

All this before we’ve even mentioned the amount of football live streaming you can access to. Top leagues covered by live streaming on the bet365app include:

  • Bundesliga
  • Serie A (IT)
  • Ligue 1
  • Primera Liga
  • Primeira Liga
  • Eredivisie
  • Serie A (BR)
  • Bundesliga (AT)
  • Super Lig
  • MLS

bet365 bore draw

Don’t get me wrong - some goalless draws can be utterly compelling. But goals win games and goals often win people bets, too.

That’s why it can be tedious to put your money on a game that turns out to be the ultimate bore draws - i.e. a goalless bore draw.

On the bet365 app you can protect yourself against this misery thanks to the football bore draw promotion:

Any losing pre-match correct score, half-time/full-time or scorecast bets will be refunded if the match ends 0-0.

The real nice thing about this one is that there doesn’t appear to be any restrictions on which matches qualify for this offer. In fact, it quite clearly says this applies to ‘ANY soccer match’.

bet365 Horse Racing

The bet365 app is one of our favourite places to bet on horses.

🏇 Loads of enhanced prices
🏇 Solid offers
🏇 UK & Ireland live streaming
🏇 Live updates & alerts

Comprehensive is the word we’d used to describe horse racing coverage on the bet365 app. Betting options on domestic racing are extensive and the selection of international fixtures covered is also impressive.

...And they're off(ers)!

Quality offers and promotions are a key feature of the bet365 racing product. While there aren’t necessarily as many different offers as you might find at, say, Paddy Power, the ones that are available are worth having:

  • Feature race 4/1 offer
  • Price promise on all live ITV races
  • Best odds guaranteed up to 10:00 on race day
  • Each way extra
  • Bet boost
  • Enhanced odds

There’s a lot of content but it’s presented in such a way that makes it easy to browse selections and find information on the horses you like the look of.

For the full immersive experience, you can also live stream UK & Irish racing on the bet365 app.



It would be nice if you could watch your selection’s previous races (you can do this via the racecard on the full desktop site) but that’s a pretty picky criticism to be levelling at what is otherwise an excellent option for those of you that like to watch races live.

We like the fact that you can configure notifications so that you get buzzed with updates when races start, when results come in, and more. You can also add horses to a favourites list with the ‘My Horse’ feature.

bet365 tennis

Our favourite thing about the bet365 app’s tennis betting product is the sheer volume of in-play matches open for betting.

Just like for footy and racing, live streaming options for tennis punters are extensive.

There’s a nice selection of in-play markets and up to 12 bets on the same match can be grouped together using bet365’s tennis Bet Builder.

Screenshots of bet365 app tennis features offers and in play betting

Great offers and a top notch in-play experience characterise the bet365 app tennis offering

For those of you who like to find value before a ball is served in anger, the selection of outright markets covers most of the major tournaments on the circuit.

The retirement guarantee offer (you’ll get paid out on singles and multiples if your selection’s opponent retires hurt) and the accumulator bonus (with which you can bag a bonus of up to 70% on pre-match tennis accas) severe only to strengthen our opinion that the bet365 app is one of the best around for tennis betting.

bet365 greyhounds

It may not be the draw it once was but there’s still plenty of greyhound racing action to bet on via the bet365 app.

You can watch selected races live in the app which, when combined with detailed race overviews in the racecard, mean you’ll be up to scratch on the latest and greatest dogs in no time.

Greyhound punters get treated to a best odds guaranteed offer (on win and each way markets) and, also like on horse racing, there’s a favourites feature that’ll ensure you don’t miss a moment of your favourite dog’s races.

bet365 app android

Bet365 android play store screenshots

bet365 Google Play Store screenshots

The bet365 Android app can be downloaded by any users with devices running Android version 4.1 or later (that should cover almost all of us - 4.1 was first released in 2012).

It’s had over one million installations via the Google play store - a comparable number to big hitters in the UK market like William Hill and Ladbrokes.

Some recent reviewers on Android suggest the app has got ‘slower’ in recent years but, given the huge variety in performance across different devices, it’s hard to tell whether that’s a bet365 issue or not.

All the sports betting features we’ve covered above can be enjoyed on the iOS app. There’s also touch and Face ID on supported devices.

The current 4.3/5 star rating that the bet365 app enjoys on the App Store tells you all you need to know, really: It’s a quality product.

You’ll need iOS version 12.0 or later to run the bet365 app on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

bet365 app payment methods

If we could pick one area where the bet365 app has the most space to improve, it would be payment methods.

That’s not to say making a deposit or withdrawal is at all difficult (in fact, it’s very easy), it’s just that we wish there were more payment methods available. The current list of available methods includes:

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Apple Pay
  • PayPal
  • Paysafecard
  • Bank transfer

We’d like to see other e-wallets like Neteller and Skrill available for UK punters.

bet365 app withdrawal time

If you have a bet365 Mastercard, you can get access to funds instantly.

PayPal, paysafecard and Apple Pay withdrawals are typically processed within 24 hours, while Visa and Mastercard debit card withdrawals take from 1-5 days.

There is no fee associated with any of the withdrawal methods on offer.

bet365 app customer support

Bet365 punters in the UK can contact support via online live chat, email, or by post if you’re proper old-school.

bet365 livechat on mobile

Bet365 has representatives available 24/7 to respond to questions and queries via its live chat service.

bet365 casino app

The quality at bet365 is not confined to the sportsbook. This bookie also has a smashing casino platform that is accessible via the separate bet365 Casino app.

The bet365 casino app matches the high standard set by the sportsbook

Live casino games can be played on the go, as well as table classic, slot games and huge jackpot games.

The bet365 Casino app is available via the App Store and the Play Store for iOS and Android devices respectively.

bet365 casino bonus

Stake £10 get £50

Deposit and stake £10 on eligible Casino games to get a £50 bonus. Wager the bonus 40 times on eligible games to make the bonus balance withdrawable. Registration required. Time limits, game restrictions and T&Cs apply.

bet365 app alternatives

We think the bet365 app probably ticks most boxes for most UK sports punters. However, it’s far from perfect and so it’s nice that we aren’t stuck with it as our only option.

If you want a better selection of payment methods, such as Neteller and Skrill, then check out the Betfred app (which supports both methods). If you want a wider range of daily offers and specials, we’d recommend the Paddy Power app.

You can find full reviews for the Betfred and Paddy Power apps via the buttons below.
