Betfair is one of the biggest bookmakers on the planet. It’s instantly recognisable. So it makes sense that their desktop presence is backed up with a first-class betting app.

The Betfair app offers a huge range of markets. There are amazing offers to boot making it one of the best in the industry, and by a distance too. 

It’s well worth seeking out as it’s a real trailblazer, particularly as the Betfair mobile app frequently rewards new customers with exclusive offers to get them started.

Betfair Android App Review

Betfair has a fantastic sportsbook app which stands up as one of the finest out there. Who doesn’t like that?! You’ll have seen them advertising at stadiums across the world, and they back it up with an easy-to-use app that has fantastic offers and an expansive market.

Every market can be found via the scroll bar at the top, while all the day’s play can easily be accessed from the homepage.

It’s jam-packed with features and has a great customer service team who will be in touch with you swiftly if you need any help.

The Betfair app for Android devices offers live betting. Their in-play markets are second-to-none making it a must for regular punters.

We thoroughly recommend this app as one of the best out there. Their casino and games offerings, all of which are easily available via the sportsbook, are also well worth playing.

Betfair Android App Features

It’s features galore with Betfair – with some incredible ones you really must take advantage of.

They’ve made betting easier than ever before, so don’t miss out. We all have our favourite features here at Betting Apps, so check out some of the top picks from our team.

Betfair sports feature list

Acca Edge

Acca Edge is one of the best features Betfair has to offer and in fact across almost every betting app in the industry.

What it does is give you the chance to cover your bets. Basically, if you have a treble of greater on selected markets you can take a lower odds return in exchange for your money back if you miss by one. This is similar to acca insurance offers which usually start at 5/6 results. It’s a great option to take as you secure the bet and you can still cash out as normal too!

Horse Racing

Most mobile betting apps require a large and innovative horse racing market to stand out and Betfair certainly have that. It’s easy to access via the toolbar and will allow you to bet on all the UK’s Racing each and every day.

Not only that, but you’ll also be able to watch the race you’ve bet on when placing a minimum 50p bet. That means you can gee the horse on right from your app, whether the race is happening at Newmarket, Cheltenham or right at the very top of the country.

You’ll also find plenty of ante-post betting available with a great number of offers each and every day.

Football Betting

Equally as popular on the app is their huge range of football betting markets available on the app.

You’ll find almost every league imaginable, while all televised games will be clearly marked and have an impressive range of in-play available.

Like horse racing, live video is also available for a number of leagues, with Serie A always popular among fans. It’s a great way to watch the football on the go, with the likes of Juventus, Lazio and the Milan club’s available to watch. On top of that, there are a number of other European leagues available to watch live, as well as the MLS.

Every weekend Betfair will also give you some fantastic enhanced odds to enjoy. More often than not they come through!

Price Rush

You may have seen their price rushes on TV adverts and social media. They’re rightly keen to push it as it’s a fantastic offer.

They apply to the correct score, over 2.5 and over 3.5 markets for singles bets and work relatively straightforward. What happens is the bet is shown at the sports book odds (standard pricing) and if there is a better price on the exchange then you can be “rushed” to that price. There have been some big swings too, with bets going from 40/1 up to 60/1. If you’re betting on these markets then the price rush coupon is available in the football section of the app.

Customisable Settings

Once you’ve downloaded the app, you’ll find you can customise it in a number of ways.

Simply head to your Account and you’ll be able to change your preferences between fraction and decimal odds. You’ll also be able to set yourself betting limits in order to stay safe while betting.

Our Verdict

Betfair really doesn’t pull any punches with their app, providing one of the easiest ways to play possible. Whether you’re a new or experienced punter you’ll find the right markets for you combined with incredible offers.

We never cease to be amazed by Betfair and it continues to ply its trade at the very peak of mobile betting.

Betfair iPhone App Review

Betfair sportsbook app home pageAlready an industry leader, we had high hopes for Betfair from the beginning, and testing its new iPhone app was a real pleasure.

When you launch it you’ll notice just how quickly it loads. Even though there are hi-res images, the app manages to handle this, in-play features and live streaming without any bother. It is content-heavy but doesn’t overload you with loads of information. Instead, it gives you well-laid-out tabs and menus that are formatted to be intuitive for the user.

The main features of the app are in-play, cash out and price rush. These three elements are what Betfair believes makes their app “as easy as Tap Tap Boom”, and although we may not use that exact expression, we’d have to agree. In-play is seamless and the cash-out option is efficient and quick – just like everything else, including live video even on 3G or 4G!

What’s so game-changing about Betfair’s cash-out option when compared to other bookmakers is how you can now cash out single and multiple bets at any time, wherever you are in the world!

For those that like to see results and bet fast, the fast bet option is most certainly for you. In just two taps of the app, you will have placed your bet. Happy days!

On another note, the app also offers the best odds guaranteed on all UK and Irish Horse Races. This is the same as just about every other betting app in the UK.

If you love betting on football, tennis, basketball, snooker, darts, horse racing or all six, you’ll soon fall head over heels in love with the Betfair App!

Betfair iPad app review

Once you start using the iPad app you will be very impressed with the ease of use and the speed of the app, even if you are using it over 3G. The iPad app is one of only a couple of sports betting apps that have been specifically designed for iPad and is not just a reflection of the iPhone app. There is also now a couple of apps to choose from – exchange betting, sports betting and casino apps.

If you are looking for the casino app click here for the Betfair casino review.


This is the app predominately advertised by Betfair and is a standard betting app for punters, we’ll cover the exchange app shortly. The app is really well designed and comes in the Betfair yellow and branding as you’d expect. For singles and in plays this is right – it’s lightning-fast to get your bets on.

Betfair ipad home page

When you first hit the iPad app look for the yellow banner under the quick sports links. Here’s where you can choose your welcome offer.

I personally like the Betfair sportsbook home page on the iPad, it has a simple and uncluttered look. Across the top, you have the quick links for the major sports (football, horse racing, tennis, golf and others) as well as links to the arcade, casino and live casino. Under this, you get the existing customer offers – enhanced odds on certain daily selections that all customers can back.

Betfair iPad app screenshots

On the right-hand side you get the trending bets – these are the most popular bets currently and are a mix of pre-match and in-play. These update and refresh very quickly unlike the most popular bets on Oddschecker for example. Then across the bottom, you have links back to the home screen as well as the a to z list of sports.

Scroll through the home page and you’ll get to the main events of the day – this covers the big matches in football and tennis as well as the big races of the day.

Horse racing

Betfair is one of very few companies to offer cash out in running on UK horse racing and they have an excellent platform for racing bettors. What stands out is the detailed coverage of each race – tap the arrow by a horse to get its form and previous race results along with a short write up on its chances. You can also see the trending odds to see if the horse is shortening or drifting in the market.

Horse racing on the app

Betfair exchange

The exchange has a similar look and feels to the sportsbook app. However, I’d say it’s a bit less flashy. The home page has links down the right for the days’ football matches and quick links to today’s popular bets on the main feed. You’ll also find the feeds for the most popular bets, today’s horse racing and games. The app has a handy cash out tab on the middle of the left bar so you’re never far away from getting to your placed bets.
