Android betting apps are available to download in two ways depending on the company. Most are available from the Google Play Store and some are available via a direct download of the APK file. We cover both in our reviews and only cover apps from companies that have a UK gambling commission license.

Android Betting Apps – Frequently asked questions
What is the best android betting app?
Our top-rated app in the UK is the William Hill Android app as it is a solid and stable app that is absolutely packed with all the features you need and more. It has regular ongoing promotions for all customers, including the excellent golden goal promotion for football betting. They are also best odds guaranteed on all UK & Irish horse racing.

How do I download betting apps on Android?
You have two options in install. Firstly you can download most UK apps from the Google Play store. However, if you want to save space you can install the web version as a short cut on your home screen.
Most Downloaded betting apps on Google Play
Ever wondered what the most popular sport betting apps are on Google play? Well here are all the details you need. Google shows downloads of apps in set brackets so we’ve been through them all (May, 20) to see which are the most popular. This doesn’t show how many active users they have but does show who’s getting the most downloads…
Sky Bet has become the first company to get past the 1 million download mark around March 2019. They were very closely followed by bet365 who hit the milestone the month after. We are expecting Paddy Power to be next to pass the seven figure target. The next benchmark for Sky would be 5,000,000 downloads which we doubt is achievable.
Sky Vegas App
50,000 – 99,999
- Bet Bright
- Mansion sports betting
- Marathon bet
As this shows the biggest names are the most popular apps – no surprise there. It will be interesting to see which is the first real money sports betting app to go past 2,000,000 downloads. If you could bet on it then my money would be on bet365 or Sky Bet to be first past the post.
Other Gambling apps
As well as sports betting apps Android users have access to other real money gambling apps on the Play Store. If you have sports betting apps then you may be able to use the same account and funds to access the casino, poker or bingo app. In some cases, you’ll need to transfer funds between accounts. This is simple and easy to do – and it’s instant so you can flick funds between accounts as often as you want.
Recommended Android Casino apps
Real money casino apps on Android are a real pain to find as the Play Store is consumed with “fun casino” apps that are flooded with ads and give you so many chips a day. We’ve trawled through to find 3 recommended real money casino apps that we think you’ll love. These are all licensed in the UK by the gambling commission and adhere to the latest in mobile and app security standards.
History of Android betting apps
Android betting apps have been on the Google Play store since 2017 after Google finally allowed real money gambling apps. Previously Google’s stance was that they could not guarantee that under 18s could not access them so they were not allowed. This led to “fake apps'” appearing on the Play store for a number of years pretending to be, for example, William Hill to get lots of downloads. Googles stance was the opposite of Apple’s, who had allowed iPhone betting apps on the App store since 2013.
Previously Android users would have had to download an APK file to get the apps and then keep them updated manually – or use a mobile site rather than an actual app.
