The longer guide –
#1 – William Hill
William hill has one of the best betting apps in the UK and a simple opening offer plus some great ongoing offers.
Daily price boosts and enhancements are regularly offered out across a variety of sports and the app layout is one of the most user-friendly available.
If you want to read our app reviews on William Hill you can here – Click here for William Hill app review. We really rate the William Hill app and new customer offer and they come out highly in our best betting app pages for each mobile operating system.
#2 – bet365
You can see our opinions on the bet365 app here
#3 – BetVictor
BetVictor is a well-known betting site in the UK. The Bet Victor app is a top quality app for you to use hence why we’ve rated their new customer offer in our top three.
BetVictor has our top rated football betting app for you to download from iTunes or Google Play. The platform is well designed, simple to get your accas on and has an excellent range of coupons available.
#4 – Coral
Coral drop in 4th in our best free bets guide as we believe the offer is generous and straight forward to claim. The Coral app also does a good job of looking after existing customers with free competitions to enter and a host of existing customer promotions.
The app is robust and reliable, even throughout the busy periods and hosts a wide range of betting markets across a large selection of sporting events.
#5 Paddy Power
Paddy Power is a well known name within the betting industry, partly thanks to its previous outrageous marketing campaigns, but also thanks to it’s excellent service online and on the high street. It has a no-nonsense new customer offer and plenty to sink your teeth in to after that once you are a fully pledged account holder.
The best offers do tend to be available on the football and horse racing but are by no means exclusive to those sports. On top of the sports there’s also a broad casino and games offering, bingo and poker that are all reliable, decent platforms to play on.
#6 – Ladbrokes
The Ladbrokes app is a good all-rounder and very ingenuitive with its features and promotions. One of the latest features to be released is the 5-A-Side football bet system.
Pick 5 players involved in a particular match offering this feature, and back them to be successful across many different measurable elements of football (certain amount of shots, saves, tackles, passes, goals, offsides etc.). Once your players and markets have been set for each of the five players, Ladbrokes will then provide odds on all five players hitting or beating their set targets.
#7 – Betfred
Betfred offers a top class betting service across football and horse racing and does a pretty good job across a wide range of other sports too. The app looks great but isn’t the easiest of apps to navigate round. The service, however, is top notch.
well known offers such as Goals Galore, Double Delight and Hat-trick heaven are all Betfred’s doing. They have offers and coupons that nobody else offers. Therefore we believe the Betfred app is worth an install and trying out.
#8 – 10bet
The 10bet app has gone through a number of design changes throughout its history and has settled on an interface we are big advocates of. The largely grey and washed out white theme makes it an easy read, especially in a dark setting or environment.
A list of “today’s events” available straight away on the home screen makes this app perfect for lining up quick-turnaround accumulators. 10Bet are also highly competitive with their standard odds pricing. They offer a list of promotions to registered users which are easily available to view from within the promotions section of the app. There’s also a special price boosts option within the home page menu for quick access to all of that day’s price enhancements.
#9 – 888Sport
The 888Sport app is bold with it’s brand colouring and Bold with its online betting service. The app itself looks very slick, displaying a dark theme against 888’s unmistakeable bright orange colouring across title headings and imagery.
The 888 is worth looking at to anyone interested in online sports betting, online casino or online poker. They offer safe and reliable services across all three areas. Although they put just as much focus in to the sports as they do casino and poker, they also do a good job of separating them to keep each area specialised for the end user.
#10 – Betway
Betway is a global brand that is famous for the phrase “Heed Your Hunch”. It offers a nice loyalty scheme for frequent users as well as free horse racing and football competitions that pay out big prizes to their winners. (Check out 4 To Win & 4 To Score).
The app itself follows a basic betting table style layout with quirky icons being used to jazz it up a little. All live promotions available to existing customers can be found at all times within the dedicated bottom menu bar.
#11 – Mr Green
This brand is probably better known for its mobile online casino offering and has justifiably earned a good reputation from doing so. They also offer a credible sports betting mobile platform. The app holds that certain regal look, very polished and professional in appearance and design.
Mr Green have also partnered up with Colossus bets to offer “Football Jackpots” on top of their standard offering. This is a whole different way of betting. The Football Jackpots section is a pools based system where you can bet on specific coupons, either individually or part of a syndicate. There’s some huge jackpot coupons available such as the 1×2 Pick 15 (£800,000 jackpot) or the Correct Score Pick 6 (£1,000,000 jackpot).
#12 – Leo Vegas
Leo Vegas is another brand that provides more emphasis on the casino side of things. There is a sports book section of the app and a new customer bonus available to be claimed for it as mentioned in the table above.
The sports betting section is very basic when comparing it to some of the best sports betting apps available. However, this app is a good option to those who like to stick to the basic markets and are just looking to bet on a big event every now and then. It also serves well to those who like the simple over the complicated. It’s also well worth looking at if you are a fan of casino games and slots.
#13 – SportNation
The SportNation app is a relative newcomer on the scene to the UK market compared to others but has held a worthy place within the legal online sports betting marketplace.
Sportnation state that they throw out thousands in free bets and promotions every week on top of offering daily price boosts and specials. Reward points are also accrued across each and every bet placed that can be traded in for cash. cash-out is available here, as is a casino section offering the most popular table games and slots titles.
#14 – Betfair
Betfair is right up there with the best of them when it comes to online sports betting. However their new customer bonus is split up and requires a fair bit of spending to achieve the full bonus. This is the reason why it is being ranked so poorly here.
However once you are registered a fantastic betting service is opened up to you that offers existing customers far simpler bonuses to get involved in. They also operate arguably the best exchange betting service in the industry on the Betfair exchange app. If you are looking to lay a bet rather than back one, then there is no better place to achieve that than with Betfair exchange, in our opinion.
#15 – Boylesports
This is another new customer bonus that is split in to sections and is difficult to understand. You should always read the terms & conditions before claiming any bonus to fully understand it and this comes specially recommended here. 13 x £10 bets are needed to be placed in order to receive the full £25 free bet bundle.
It may be complicated but it is there to be taken advantage and if the terms are followed the rewards are granted. Away from the new customer offer, Boylesports come recommended by us to any horse racing enthusiast. This is where the Boylesports app specialises and excels. There’s lots of horse racing based promotions available ranging such as extra places and money back if your horse finishes second to the SP favourite in certain races. It may specialise in horse racing but other sports are well looked after also.
