Heavily focussed on Providing Best Odds
BetUK App Quick Guide
The Bet UK app is a newcomer to the online gambling world who are picking up attention due to being heavily odds focussed.
BetUk are often coming out top price for accumulators on odds comparison sites, but what is the actual service like? We delve under the bonnet to find out.

BetUK Betting App Review
The BetUK app is available on the App Store (for iPhone and iPad) and on the Google Play Store (for Android). The service is also available from any mobile web browser, thanks to the mobile optimised website.
The homepage has a familiar layout as far as betting apps go. A scrollable banner bar lays out the current bonuses and offers available.The most popular events are displayed in a list format, there’s intuitive menus and filters to help locate specific events or markets and a text input search tool.
There’s a good range of sports on offer and there’s a casino element built in to the BetUK app offering a whole host of games and jackpots.
The information on screen is well spaced out, which will be good news to those with chunky fingers and the interface is swift and accurate to touch gestures. First impressions aren’t going to blow new users away, but they certainly won’t be disappointed either.
BetUK App Features
BetUK are pushing the boat out as much as possible to be the best price across their sports-book service. They do a very good job of it too.
At the time of writing this review, BetUK were coming up as best price on the majority of accumulators were price checking.
Here’s a four fold including four favourite horses as an example:
Here’s one containing four premier League teams, all favourite to win win their match:
If the most important part of a betting app to you is it offering out the best price most of the time, this app would certainly be worthwhile downloading currently, in our opinion.
The BetUK app accommodates those who like the opportunity to secure profits or minimise losses before an event has ended. Cash outs are offered on selected markets, across single and multiple bets.
However, there isn’t any partial cash out functionality here to allow users to keep a portion of their stake still active. Free bets here are without a cash out option attached. This is not the case with other bookmakers.
As with all bookmakers, the cash out feature can be removed at any time, depending on what is happening in the event and within the odds market.
The Bet Builder feature is fast becoming classed as a “must have” feature for those who like betting on the football. As such, BetUK have, of course, added this to their priced up football events.
There’s lots of markets here to bundle up in order to make up a unique bet with handsome odds. Here’s some of them:
- Outright win market
- Double chance
- Both teams to score
- Correct score
- Total Goals
- Half time/Full time
- Player shots on target
- Player shots
- To score and assist
The bet builder tool itself is a bit clunky to use and selections are limited to a maximum of five. However it is good to see that this option is here, allowing football users the freedom to be a lot more creative with their bets.
Horse racing fans will be pleased to hear that all UK and Ireland races are available on Live Stream on the BetUK app. There are also streams available from other horse racing events from around the world.
However, there is no live streaming available for any other sport. Instead users are presented with a virtual representation of what is happening, when visiting the live event page.
One big plus though in regards to the horse racing live streams are that they open up in full screen. No squinting here needed to find out where you horse is placed!
Offers and Promotions
This is one area we feel BetUK are lagging behind their competitors. Although there are ongoing offers and promotions for both new and existing customers, these tend to have high wagering or turnover requirements attached to them.
There’s a lack of any odds boosts or price enhancements. However, there is a profits boost attached to multiples that we personally appreciate, giving up to a 50% boost on accumulators. The profit boost is as follows
- Trebles – 10% boost
- 4 folds – 20% boost
- 5 folds – 30% boost
- 6 folds – 40% boost
- 7 folds – 50% boost
All odds on selections included in the accumulator must be at 1.2 or greater for the profit boost to be in play.
With BetUK’s standard odds offering being so generous, there’s no real surprise there is a lack of boost to enhance them further. However this is certainly an area they can be improving on.
BetUK have teamed up with casino game providers such as NetEnt, Pragmatic, PlayNGo and Evolution to host a whole catalogue of online casino entertainment.
There’s popular slots games like Reactoonz and Starburst. There’s Megaways slots, live dealer tables, classic casino games and huge progressive jackpots.
There were 15 available titles to play attached to the progressive jackpots, with the mega jackpot standing at over £13,000,000 at the time of writing.
BetUK Reviews Its Service Regularly
BetUk are always striving to become even better, so they constantly monitor app performance and take on board customer feedback. The BetUK app is frequently updated to remove bugs, as well as adding more features and betting options.
BetUK Withdrawal Time
BetUk offer swift withdrawals to customers requesting them. The amount of time depends on the payment method used to deposit funds in the first place, as this will also act as the withdrawal method. Therefore, the Bet UK withdrawal time can very between instant and up to five days. Deposit methods include:
- Visa Electron
- Bank Transfer
This is an app we will be keeping on our devices, with the intention of using it regular for our everyday bets. The odds they offer truly are always up their with the best, if not out alone as price leader.
The BetUK app is not one we will be hunting around in the hope of a free bet or super boost, but it has enough features to make it more than just a best price securer.
An impressive offering by BetUK, but not quite enough all round to make it in to our best betting app list. There’s a lot of potential here though and if the same amount of focus was put on the overall service as is being on best price, then this app would be a major player.
