Betfair Mobile app review

When you first take a look at the Betfair Mobile App landing page, it hardly looks like the most compelling and attractive of apps on the block.

A simple, bare-bones approach outlining the key features and installation instructions is pretty much all you’ll find. Though don’t let this no-frills look fool you; whether you download Betfair’s betting app for your Blackberry, iPhone or Android device, you’re essentially getting your hands on one of the most robust and all-inclusive apps on the market.

Does that make it worth the download? How does the Betfair app stack up against its leading competitors like the bet365 app and William Hill app? We tasked our betting reviewers with finding out:

User experience

Getting up and running with the Betfair sports app couldn’t be easier. Either grab it from your device’s app store, or just use the free bet link above to get straight to the mobile home screen.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll find a smooth, simple navigation menu helping you access all the main features at the click of a button. The entire user-interface is highly intuitive, meaning it never takes more than a second to get to the right screen, and that most bets can be carried out with the single click of a button – as the adverts say its as simple as #taptapboom.

Features and functions

As fully comprehensive as any betting app we’ve seen so far, Betfair’s offering provides practically instant access to a vast wealth of markets. Not that you’ll have much trouble finding one that suits you. A simple search function quickly brings up what you’re looking for, and if that’s not enough there’s one-click functionality supporting both back and lay bets.

The most popular sport remain a permanent fixture across the top of the app for greater access, whilst the footer comes complete with with buttons to manage your account, access live scores and cash out options.

Design

horse racing on betfair mobileThe Betfair mobile app may not win any awards for groundbreaking design, but to be honest, that’s all part of it’s appeal. A simple, compelling interface laid out in the company’s corporate colours makes the whole design easy on the eye without sacrificing functionality or simple navigation. It’s subtle, it’s understated, but it certainly works, and only adds to the enjoyment of the whole mobile betting experience.

Offers and promotions

The Betfair mobile app is awash with constant offer and promos including daily enhanced odds and weekend Premier League enhanced offers. These are available for all customers which is great to see and there’s £30 in free bets on offer for new customers too.

Our verdict

There’s a lot to like about Betfair, great design, great user interface and load of great on going promotions to keep you interested. The Betfair app is as easy to use as you could ever ask for, and comes with access to so many markets that it’d almost be foolish not to at least give them a look.
