We think that the bet365 mobile app for Android and iPhone offering is one of the better apps being made available today, and with good reason. In our opinion, it has some excellent features that not only meet but actually exceed most punters’ expectations.

Read on for detailed user reviews, including overall opinions on what real users say. We think that the bet365 mobile version is quite simply one of the best player experiences that we’ve had for online betting.
What users say about bet365 mobile
Here are some opinions from our review team users and what they have to say about bet365:
“I think that they are actually really good for a UK bookie. They do have a wide range of betting choices plus they send money quickly back to my debit card when I make a withdrawal. I’m not sure that I can ask much more than that.”
“I’ve found it hard to get better odds from lots of other bookies. I think that it is better than on Betfair because there they charge you a percentage of the bet just to make it. The odds you get on Bet365 are about the same albeit without the extra charges. I have bet a lot with them and they keep me happy.”
“I feel that it’s the best online betting site hands down. Easy layout of the pages, loads of bets on for each game and so simple to use. I think that the only downside I can think of is that there are only small incentives for existing customers compared to if you are a new customer – but I guess all companies do that.”
“I’ve been with Bet 365 for more than seven years. In my experience (I don’t bet all that frequently – maybe every other week), it’s nothing but positives. I have always been paid within 24 hrs, and, despite the adverts with Ray Winstone (I can’t stand them!), my overall experience has been really good. It seems to me that Betfair regularly restricts a small 50p bet to 45p – or a £3 one to £2.88 (and I’m not joking) – with the reason being that they have some punters restricted to a percentage of their total acceptable liability/stake. This doesn’t seem to be the case with Bet365.
“I didn’t actually take up the introductory offer, I’m not much into promotions due to my overly suspicious nature. What I was and still am interested in is a good experience.”
My experience using bet365 mobile
Alex Hayes, Review Team
I had always known bet365 as a pretty famous name in the online gambling world. Most people are almost certainly going to have seen their sponsorship of events or seen their adverts, even if you aren’t a committed gambler. As a fully licensed and regulated operator, I fully expected before using the mobile app’s sportsbook and online casino that I should be able to rely on it for a safe experience, and here I’ll talk through my own experiences and opinions in finding out what this well-known operator had in store.
Even though I had very high hopes for this betting site and my initial opinions were positive, right from the design and layout. When first opening the mobile site & app, I was greeted with the iconic bet365 green colour with the logo on the left top of the screen. The promotional signup offer was clearly displayed in the middle of the screen so I couldn’t miss it.
As usual, there were a host of conditions relating to the signup offer. I had to deposit a minimum of £5 via an approved payment method – which was basically a credit or debit card unless you want to go to a lot of hassle supplying a pile of paperwork to the customer support team and then waiting for it to be approved before you can finally make your deposit using PayPal, Skrill or Neteller. Not for me! There was also a seemingly endless string of other conditions about which type of bets count towards your wagering requirement – In fact, the conditions stretch on for over a page, so it’s best to read through them fully before you make any commitment. I did!
The actual registration process itself is very quick, easy and straightforward. It’s a simple matter of just completing your details, ticking a few boxes about how you want to be contacted and then you’re taken straight into the depositing page. Unlike many other sites, you’re asked to deposit straight away after registering – most other sites let you familiarise yourself with the site and the account portal first before you deposit, but not bet365. You’re swept straight into the depositing page.
Fair enough, then. As you’d expect, it’s pretty simple to put down your first deposit – I remembered to use a debit card so that I would get my sign up bonus straight away. A box actually pops up asking you to opt into the bonus, so you can be confident you’re going to get it. In my case, the payment was authorised in seconds and then I was all done and ready to bet.
I registered on the mobile site, and after that found that my login username and password were all I needed to log in from any device or app. Simple.
The Player Account Portal
Once I was all signed up and had deposited my first funds, I had a quick look around the player account portal. It’s certainly very comprehensive. Everything you need is at your fingertips. You can instantly see your balance, your withdrawable balance and your bonus balance. You can also transfer your funds here between the sportsbook and their casino arm.
From the portal, you can also access the Help function, withdraw or deposit funds, see available promotions, see your betting history and read any messages that have been left for you. All of this can be accessed by clicking on the player symbol at the top right of the screen.
Reviewing The Sportsbook
There’s a whole lot of choice on the bet365 sportsbook. No matter what kind of sports you like betting on, you’re bound to find something here. You’ve got all the basics covered – football (or soccer, to avoid any confusion), horse racing, rugby and cricket – as well as a whole lot of other options, including some which are extremely niche. There’s a whole Winter Sports section as well as Gaelic Sports and Virtual Sports.
You can bet on sports in different countries around the world, and there are some sports you can bet on which I’ve never heard of before (Floorball, anyone?) Somewhat disappointingly, there are no options to bet on non-sporting events or politics (I guess there isn’t much demand for that!) however for most punters there’s going to be enough betting choice to keep them going for months without getting bored.
Betting On Football
You can easily see which matches are due to kick off in the next few hours by selecting the Soccer tab and then “next 24 hours”. You’ll be taken straight to a screen with all the options for today’s betting. The list is comprehensive, covering not only matches within the UK but across Europe and the rest of the world too. Select your category, and you can then see all the available matches for betting on within that category. Choose your match and then you’ll be presented with all the available markets with their odds clearly displayed. There’s no shortage of betting options. You can bet on everything from the basics – who’s going to win (1X2) – to who will score the first goal and the winning margin.
Placing your bet is as simple as selecting an option, entering the amount you wish to wager on the right-hand side of the screen and then clicking on “done”. You can then see your betting slip and just wait for the result to come in.
My preferred method for sports betting is the “Due-column” system, which is a fixed-profit system that I tested out on bet365. Bascially, I determined my target profit and the %age of my bankroll that I wanted to use at the start before any bets are placed. Here’s what happened:
Due Column Betting on bet365 (Results)
Trying The Casino
While I was waiting for the match to kick off, I decided to do follow the Gaming link and take a look in the bet365 Casino. It’s worth remembering that you need to transfer your funds in your account portal from the Sportsbook to the Casino. You can do this quickly and easily with just a few clicks.
As soon as I opened the Casino page I was presented with some Free Spins. A ‘Spin The Wheel’ game popped up, which offered me 5 free spins on Age of the Gods. Well, why not? Not looking a gift horse in the mouth, so I immediately clicked on the box to take me straight to the game.
I wasn’t mega impressed by the length of time it took to load the page, but maybe I’m just quite impatient. Then when it did, (in Chrome on my phone), I couldn’t get it to work properly. So, I downloaded the app and then it all worked first time.
As I said, the page loading seemed to take forever and also, when I took my five free spins, I found the spinning a little glitchy. It wasn’t the smoothest slots experience I’ve ever had.
Returning to the lobby, pop-ups appeared alerting me to some other promotional casino offers that I might be interested in, which is quite helpful since lots of players don’t want to constantly have to visit the Promotions section of the site to see what’s on offer.
Familiarising Myself With The Casino
My initial impressions of the casino lobby were positive ones. The site is well laid out, stylish and user-friendly. I was presented with the options for the different available games, which were:
- Hero Slots
- Card games
- Table games
- Video Poker
- Games and Keno
Roulette, Blackjack and the Live Casino all had their own links clearly visible too.
Having a quick browse around, I noticed some interesting options like Sic Bo and Craps as well as the standard Blackjack, Baccarat and Hold ‘Em. One area of the Casino site that I found especially interesting was the Games and Keno section, which had some really unusual instant play games like Penalty Shoot Out, Dice Twister and even Rock Paper Scissors!
Blackjack is my go-to Casino option, so I took my pick from the variety of options available. I selected Cashback Blackjack and loaded it up. Again, I wasn’t so impressed by the loading times – took a long time but might have been due to my connection, not sure.
The game itself was very straightforward. With £1 bets being the minimum and the payout of 2:1, I played a few hands. Nice graphics – fairly simple, but suitably detailed and with the pairing of the voice which reads out your card total and the sound of the cards being dealt, it feels quite atmospheric.
Having dipped my toe in the water of the Bet365 Casino I thought I’d take a look at the Bet365 Vegas site. Remember, when you’re moving between areas to switch your balance in the Account Portal from the Sportsbook or Casino to the Vegas area or you won’t have any funds to wager with.
There was also a new player offer of 50 free spins for depositing or transferring £10 to the Bet365 Vegas account. I’m not sure if such offers are always available, but this was my experience. This confirmed my prior understanding that customers can participate in exciting promotions every month.
There are a whole lot of slots here to choose from across all different niches to suit every player’s tastes. Note: On returns to bet365 Vegas, I noticed that new games were regularly added to the site. Also plenty of jackpot slots to choose from. For those who are into table games, I found that there were all the classics on offer – Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat and Poker. I chose French Roulette which had a minimum bet of just 10p – not quite as cheap as Penny Roulette, but almost as good!
I found the loading time a little slow again, but again the graphics were good. A nice 3D setup with background music, a friendly voice reading out the results of the spin and real-time spinning with realistic sounds. The spinning was a little glitchy, but it didn’t affect my gameplay too much. It was very easy to place a wager by simply selecting the appropriate chip and placing it on the board in the chosen selection.
Bingo – A British Classic!
I couldn’t leave the Bet365 site without a quick look at their Bingo area. After all – it’s a British institution! As soon as I selected the Bingo page, I was presented with the option to opt into the Egyptian Treasure promotion which was open to anyone who spends £5 or more on bingo in any room or on any of the qualifying slots.
I found that the Bingo section of the site had a lot to offer. As well as bingo, of course, I could see a great choice of slots and other scratchcards.
I joined the Rainbow Riches bingo room. There’s a chat facility, but nobody was chatting – probably because there’s just no time, it’s such a fast-paced game. It was certainly lively, and very simple to get to grips with what you have to do. If I was going to be picky, I’d say that the leprechaun voice which reads out the numbers is pretty loud and irritating, but that’s a minor point. I found it colourful, exciting and fun, and also incredibly affordable – I bought a ticket for just 5p!
I spent a while longer in the bingo rooms – I tried out Deal or No Deal Bingo which was a lot of fun as well as Guilty Pleasures (with bingo cards from just 1p) as well as Fame and Fortune Hunter. Games start every couple of minutes, so there’s always one to join and with low priced bingo cards and some appealing jackpots on offer, it would be difficult to get bored here.
Some of the bingo rooms had more chat action than others, although mostly it’s team members welcoming players to the room and congratulating the winners. Still, it all added to the real-world atmosphere and made me feel like I was part of a community. It’s a nice touch.
You might expect the customer service from Bet365 to be state of the art, and I wasn’t disappointed. I learned that there are plenty of ways to get in touch with the knowledgeable customer support team no matter what time of the day or night you’re wagering. By entering the player account portal, it’s possible to send a web message or access the live chat function.
There’s also a telephone number and email address for good measure and if you’re looking for a quick answer to a simple question without having to actually communicate with an operator, and I liked that there’s a useful Help section which is simple to access and which is packed with information.
Of course, a key element of any online betting experience is how easy it is to cash out your winnings. Again, I found that bet365 makes it simple. I could cash out through my player account portal. By selecting “Bank” then “withdraw” and entering the amount, I found it possible to action a withdrawal of funds in seconds with the minimum withdrawal amount being £5, although depending on which method you choose it could be a lot higher – for cheques, for example, the minimum withdrawal seems to be £100.
I saw that you can use a wide range of withdrawal methods including credit and debit card, PayPal, Neteller, Skrill, cheque, bank transfer and PaySafeCard. The withdrawal time, of course, will vary between methods. E-Wallet methods are meant to take just 24 hours after being processed, whereas cards take up to 5 days for funds to be received, bank transfers up to 10 days and a cheque could take as long as a month. I can’t imagine that would be much fun.
Would I Recommend Bet365?
So, we come down to the nitty gritty – would I recommend Bet365? Yes, I definitely would. In summary, my boxes that it ticks: First, the non-gaming stuff, fully licensed and regulated, plenty of deposit and withdrawal options to choose from and excellent customer support. Then (the gaming stuff), there’s a world of choice when it comes to their casino games, sports betting options and bingo site.
I could easily spend hours on this site and not get bored, and can withdraw winnings regularly and easily. There’s a lot to like about this site and not much to criticise. If I was being picky, I would say that some of the pages on the non-sports betting side can be rather slow to load, and in some cases the graphics aren’t as brilliant as I hoped they would be, but these are very small complaints. In general, I would 100% recommend Bet365 to anyone who wants plenty of variety in their gambling experience.
