Choosing the top ten betting apps is a tough call, especially as everybody has their personal opinion. In fact, we have often spent long hours debating what we think is the best only to finally agree to disagree. However, each of the apps in this list of our best ten selections has every right to be included, often for different reasons, some practical and fundamental and some simply because we like them.
The only way to choose is to try a few of these out for yourself and see which are right for you. Perhaps you disagree and you know of a great football betting app that we have missed – if so then please let us know; we’ll check it out and maybe we’ll might include it in a subsequent list.
Many people would agree that the bet365 app is one of the best, after all the brand is justifiably promoted as “the world’s favourite online sports betting company”. The app provides you with access to a wide range of in-play and pre-match markets, and provides facility to stream great live sporting action to your iPhone or Android device.
Some exciting features include bet365’s Cash Out, Partial Cash Out and Auto Cash Out, which gives you total control of your bets. There are dedicated team pages for football selections, quick links to top events, and a comprehensive sports menu.
The Betfair sports betting app has one of the highest user ratings in our list with four and a quarter stars. That said, there have been some problems with early versions of the Android version, though the iPhone app worked fine. We understand that the early teething problems have been fixed and the latest version of the app runs fine on Android.
In fact, for football betting this app has all you need including cash out plus a responsive cash out slider that gives you instant control of your cash out amount; stake back is available on accumulators that lose just one leg, you can access live football streaming, and the fast betting option lets you place bets with just two taps.
William Hill app
The William Hill sports betting app has a relatively low user rating of just two stars, but don’t let this necessarily put you off. While there have been many complaints that it can be a little slow, the latest update seems to have solved various bugs and provided an overall improvement in performance.
With this app, you can access enhanced football odds most days. You can stream live sports including football, and use the William Hill cash out feature including partial cash out. In-play betting is great too.
Paddy Power app
With an average user rating of three stars, the Paddy Power app has some defectors, though people who do like it tend to like it a great deal. The app provides PIN login, which means that you can get to your account rapidly should you need to urgently place a bet. With advanced live stats and sports streaming direct to your device, it provides a solid user experience with some advantages.
For instance, adding the Cash Card Plus to your app will give you instance access to your winnings 24/7, and you can request one directly from the app.
The next in our selections of best football betting apps is the 10Bet app, though there is a distinct lack of customer feedback on both iTunes and Android markets. Despite this the app offers a wide range of football betting features, but beware that there is no live football streaming.
This is a straight forward football betting app without the usual whistles and bells, so if simplicity is your style, the 10Bet app could be the solution. With access to 150 professional leagues, you will never be short of a market.
The Coral app has a better than average user rating of four stars and would appear to have a more consistent user experience than some of the alternatives. With live football streaming on selected matches, a quick bet facility, a comprehensive cash out feature including partial cash out, and a single cash wallet across all markets including the casino, this could be the app for you.
Coral promotes its distinctive feature that allows you to browse all sporting markets while simultaneously watching live football streaming.
While the Betfred app is relatively simple, many say that the simpler the better and to an extent we agree with this sentiment. After all, what you really want to do is to place a bet quickly when you want to rather than spending time figuring out how to. While some users have quibbles the user rating is three stars, which is average, though the app provides all you need for an exciting football betting experience.
Specific features include enhanced odds for bets on the first goal scorer, and currently there is a Double Delight & Hat-Trick Heaven promotion giving you the chance to double and treble the price on your first goal scorer bet if you first goal scorer gets a second or third goal.
Ladbrokes app is reasonably well rated by its users with an above average rating of four stars. An updated version has recently been launched which appears to take care of many of the initial bugs that niggled users.
There is a good selection of streamed football, including La Liga games and plenty of in-play stats available at your fingertips. All the usual features are available including cash-out. If you decide to place a bet in a betting shop, you can use the app to scan your betting slip so you can keep track of all your bets in one place.
Bet Victor app
An advantage of the Bet Victor app is the supposed better odds you can get on football games. While this is often the case, it isn’t always so; sometimes you can get better odds elsewhere. Though overall many people do claim that the bet Victor odds tend to be better and are guaranteed to be better on five-fold football bets.
The app is quite straight forward and easy to use, though some people find some of the features a little annoying. For instance, when odds change prior to making your bet you need to cancel and re-select it; it doesn’t automatically update. Otherwise in-play betting is great. If you enjoy placing 5-folds, then this is the app for you.
Sky Bet app
Sky Bet claims that their app is the most advanced sports betting app available. Indeed, it has very high user ratings of around 4.5 stars. One of its attractive features is the Soccer Saturday Price Boost feature which packages three of the major games of the day into a single bet with substantially higher odds. Essentially this is an enhanced treble; typically, odds might be boosted from 3/1 to 5/1; a significant boost.
The app includes fast cash out, numerous in-play markets, and detailed in-play statistics directly from Sky Sports. Despite its overall high user rating, some users do report some difficulties and niggles. Then you can’t please all the people all the time.
