BetUK app verdict

Ryan Davis

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

8/10

The BetUK app is a relative newcomer to the UK market having launched in 2018. We can see why it’s a popular option among UK punters, though:

A huge range of markets - including particularly impressive coverage of global football - plus a strong sign up offer make BetUK a tempting proposition for British bettors.

The BetUK app UX is also pleasingly simple - it’s no hassle at all to navigate through the markets, account details and banking functions.

BetUK review

All mybettingsites.com UK team members have had a thorough play around with the BetUK app - some on Android and some on iOS.

The best way to experience BetUK is via the mobile app.

What we like about the BetUK app

We really like the simplicity of the UX that BetUK has developed for its Android and iOS mobile apps. It really keeps the focus on what matters most - placing bets.

The BetUK sign up offer is a good one - free bets are easy to claim thanks to low minimum odds on the qualifying bet.

The coverage of football is comprehensive, with literally tens of thousands of possible bets available at any one time.

Horse racing benefits from live streaming and Timeform tips on UK & Irish racecards and there is also an impressive range of options for betting on niche sports.

What the BetUK app could improve

Ryan Davis

The lack of promotions once you get past the sign up offer is noticeable, especially when you compare the BetUK app with some of its leading competitors such as 888sport and Bet365 - not to mention the promos king Paddy Power.

We think the BetUK app would benefit from the availability of a better selection of payment methods, too. At the time of writing only debit card, bank transfer and PayPal are available which is not exactly ideal in this day and age.

BetUK app FAQs

How do I claim the BetUK welcome offer?

New players at BetUK who deposit and bet a tenner can claim a tidy £30 in free bets. The key conditions to remember in order to qualify for the offer are:

  • Minimum odds for £10 qualifying bet: 1.5 (1/2)
  • Valid for new customers on mobile only.

Are there BetUK bonus offers for existing customers?

Yes, there are a few bonus offers available to existing customers at BetUK.

The best of the bunch for sports bettors is the BetUK Acca Club, which allows punters to claim up to five profit boosts on accas every week. Profits can be boosted by as much as 50%, so it’s certainly worth claiming the boosts in the ‘My Promotions’ section.

Click here for more info on BetUK bonuses, offers and promotions.

Does the BetUK app have live streaming?

While there are extensive in-play betting options, the only live streaming currently available on the BetUK app is on selected UK & Irish horse racing & greyhound races.

If live streaming is an absolute must for your betting strategy, we'd suggest the Bet365 app as a perfect alternative.

What is the BetUK Acca Club?

The BetUK Acca Club is a regular promotion that can be claimed by existing customers on the BetUK app.

Each week, punters who have claimed the Acca Club offer (in the ‘My Promotions’ page) will be able to use up to five profit boosts on accas of 3+ legs.

Profit boosts of up to 50% can be secured on accas of 7+ legs!

Which BetUK sister sites are worth checking out?

The BetUK brand is owned and operated by LeoVegas Gaming PLC.

LeoVegas is a high-quality sports betting app in its own right, and also welcomes new users with a generous sign up bonus.

BetUK app: key features

Great sign up offer

One of the standout features for BetUK is the huge free bet bonus that new customers can claim when they first sign up.

The minimum odds for the qualifying bet to unlock the offer are nice and low at just 1.5 (1/2).

Depth of markets

We think it’s unlikely that you’ll struggle to find something you want to bet on on the BetUK app: The number of bets available at any one time is huge.

For example, at the time of writing on a normal Tuesday, more than 80,000 different football markets are open for betting, plus almost 1,000 tennis markets and 800 horse and greyhound racing options.

Acca Club

Accas are a huge part of British sports betting - and especially football betting - culture.

BetUK clearly knows that, as they have a great little Acca Club which allows existing customers to claim five profit boosts of up to 50% each week on their accas.

Top-tier casino offering

The BetUK sportsbook is a very solid option for UK sports bettors, and they’ve put just as much effort into the BetUK app’s casino.

BetUK app users can join live casino games, jackpots, instant wins and classic table games, or play on a huge selection of slots from industry-leading developers.

BetUK sports betting

Overall, we think the sports betting options on the BetUK app are pretty excellent.

The range of markets covered is exceptional, as is the variety of sports that can be bet on. We dive a little deeper into some of the key sports for UK punters below:

BetUK football betting

⚽ Enormous selection of matches and markets
⚽ Bet builder and pre-packs available
⚽ Lots of corner and card markets
⚽ Good selection of player specials on big matches

The first thing you’ll be struck by when browsing the BetUK app football betting markets is the sheer number of them. Not only are there thousands of matches to pick from for both pre-match and in-play betting, but there is a fantastic variety of markets available on each match too.

Reviewer holding betuk app displaying football bet builder function

The BetUK bet builder is a decent effort.

The bet builder feature is decent but perhaps not as slick and fully-featured as the ones on 888sport or Bet365.

The BetUK app is heaven for corners and cards punters.

Markets like corners, cards and player props are often the ones that get left out even at the top UK online bookies. That’s not the case on the BetUK app, which has an impressive selection of markets in these categories. Asian lines are available, too.

Another area where BetUK is strong - and that other bookies often overlook - is player specials/props.

We reckon these will become increasingly popular for UK punters in the coming years, so it’s promising to see a strong range of options at BetUK.

The lack of any football live streaming means BetUK can’t really be considered one of the absolute best football betting apps in the UK market, but it’s definitely up there with the chasing pack.

BetUK Odds

We took a random selection of ten football fixtures from major global competitions and calculated the average margin for the 1X2 (win-draw-win) markets on the BetUK app.

The average margin for these markets was 5.95%, which we’d say is around average.

While you might get stung a bit betting on competitions like the Asian Champions League (average margin 8.96%) on the BetUK app, the margin for a big Premier League clash between Liverpool and Manchester United was nice and tight at 3.6%.

Overall, we’d say there may be more value at BetUK in football markets that are not available at all other online bookies, such as player specials and card markets.

BetUK horse racing

🏇 Live streaming on UK & Irish racing
🏇 Integrated Timeform info
🏇 Decent selection of specials

The BetUK app is probably not the first place you would think of to place your regular racing bets, but it is by no means a bad option.

Live streaming of UK & Irish racing is pretty much a mandatory requirement these days for a betting app to be considered top-tier for racing, and BetUK has this feature for UK & Irish racing.

We also like the way BetUK has integrated Timeform data and previews into its racecards.

You certainly won’t be able to claim that you lost your bet for a lack of information at BetUK! The slick app layout lends itself well to racecard display and there are drop-downs that reveal more info about each runner.

There's more than enough options on BetUK to keep racing punters happy

A healthy range of specials is nice to see, but we’re not sure that best odds guaranteed is on offer on the BetUK app which is certainly a drawback considering most other top UK bookies offer this.

BetUK - other sports betting markets

As we mentioned above, one of the standout features of the BetUK app is the sheer volume of sports betting markets available.

This is not just the case with the major sports like football and horse racing - niche sports are covered extensively on the BetUK app.

Whether your edge is world championship chess or Czech Liga Pro table tennis, you’ll find markets open on the BetUK app.

Fans of betting on major sports that aren’t as popular in the UK as they are elsewhere, like basketball, baseball, American football and Australian rules are also well catered for.

BetUK offers

No bookie could be considered an outstanding option without dishing out a few offers to both new and existing punters.

BetUK free bet offers

There are a couple of great offers open to sports bettors on the BetUK app - most notably the free bets sign up offer and acca club profit boosts.

However, overall we think that BetUK falls a little bit short in this area when compared with other leading sports betting apps.

Casino players have more offers to choose from than the sports punters, with weekly deposit matches plus numerous opportunities to win free spins and earn free chips.

Bet UK sign up offer

Bet £10 Get £30 in Free Bets

BetUK’s current sign up offer is one of the better ones on offer to UK sports bettors at the moment.

Low minimum odds of 1.5 (1/2) for the qualifying stake make the free bets easy to claim.

Note that the free bets are only valid for use on accas with 4+ legs, but with each leg only needing odds of 1.3 (3/10) or greater, a qualifying four-fold is still very winnable.

Claim £30 offer

Full T&Cs apply. New customers on mobile only. 7 days to claim and stake £10 minimum bet at odds of 1.5 or greater to qualify. Free, void, cashed out or partially cashed out bets do not qualify. Max 3x £10 free bets credited on bet settlement. Free bets must be used on 4 or more selections with selection odds of 1.3 or greater. Free bets are non-withdrawable and stake not returned with winnings. 7 day expiry. 18 + BeGambleAware.org


Promotions

Aside from the sign up offer, BetUK is a little thin on promotions for our liking.

The BetUK Specials section highlights a few markets each day on which odds are boosted.

We think the lack of regular promotions on the BetUK app is probably its biggest drawback.

Image showing different promotions on the betuk app

There are a couple of decent promos on the BetUK app, but we'd like to see more.

This won’t be an issue for many punters who just like a straightforward betting experience but most of BetUK’s competitors have a wider selection of promotions.

BetUK app customer support

BetUK app users can browse through an extensive help centre library of common queries and questions, and emailing BetUK support is also possible along with a convenient live chat option.

BetUK clearly takes its commitment to safer gambling very seriously: We think it’s good to see plenty of clear information about deposit and loss limits, self-exclusion options and resources for advice and support.

BetUK live chat

BetUK live chat agents are available 24/7 and, after the usual account security procedures, should be able to help you with pretty much anything that isn’t covered in the help centre.

BetUK withdrawal time

Withdrawals from the BetUK app can take up to five working days to reach your bank account.

The exact time depends on the payment method selected.
