BetBull App Review
BetBull may be quite a recent entrant on the online sportsbook scene, having only been introduced in 2015, however it is relatively unique in the area. This is because it is one of the very first sports betting companies to focus primarily on operating entirely via an app, and this innovative approach has never been used before.
As one might imagine from a sportsbook that has been designed purely for app access, there is the kind of functionality that might not be found on a mobile website. This includes some well-thought-out features such as social opportunities to chat with other punters. This has the effect of giving the app a bit of a community feel which is almost unique to the scene. It’s certainly original. More about this later in the more detailed review section.
Although BetBull sportsbook does have a promotional offer in place for newly registered bettors, it isn’t one that ranks as one of the best in the crowded market. New sign-ups receive an offer of a £20 free bet when they register for the app’s services and make an initial deposit which must be at least £20 in value. In order to take advantage of the free bet token, punters need to wager an equal amount on any of the selections which are either even money or greater. Once the token has been awarded, it can then only be used on multiple bets with odds of 1/2 or higher.

How to Download and Install the BetBull App
The BetBull app is compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. Even better, this sportsbook has moved with the times and has not only allowed Apple device users to download the app directly from their App Store, but they have also developed an app which can be downloaded by Android device users direct from the Google Play Store too (since Google have now permitted betting apps in their store again). This is a much more convenient option than having to go through the more drawn out and complex process of having to visit the website and then adjust their device’s security settings in order to download and install the software.
BetBull Review (Continued)
One downside is that, at present, BetBull has no poker or casino site to offer to punters, however, since it is relatively new in the market it is possible that this may be something that is added for the bettors’ enjoyment at a later time. It’s normally the way these things go, anyway. Users of the app can also be confident that this is a very safe operator since it is licensed & regulated by the UK Gambling Commission for the punters’ peace of mind, albeit being based in Malta.
As well as the welcome bonus which is available for all new punters who sign up for the app’s services and who place an initial deposit of the appropriate amount, there is also an attractive loyalty package. This is appealing for existing customers who want to be sure of maximising their winning potential over time. The loyalty bonus which is available to existing players allows punters to progress up the levels the more that they wager. In a nutshell, the higher the level that they reach, the better the odds they receive. This is a very persuasive way to encourage players to stay loyal to the brand.
Since BetBull has been designed purely for mobile smartphone use on Android and iOS devices, its app has fast, smooth and streamlined operation. Fully mobile optimised, there is no waiting around for pages to load and there are no worries at all about the speed of bets processing. We think that the BetBull app has one of the best designs in the business and is certainly one of the fastest and smoothest.
There are plenty of sports markets to choose from on this app, so whatever the punters’ preference, they are sure to find something to meet their needs. Traditional options like tennis and football rub shoulders with more niche ones such as darts and boxing as well as some of the more unusual markets. Navigation is extremely simple via the app, and being able to bet on all of the most popular markets on the go at any time of the day or night is especially appealing.
Perhaps the best feature of the BetBull app has to be the Bulls tab, an area of the app in which it’s possible to see all of the previous week’s biggest winners and even choose to follow their betting behaviour if desired. There is also a Spin The Wheel Odds Booster which helps punters to maximise their winnings. This innovative feature allows bettors to obtain as much as 30% extra on Accumulator bets.
Of course, there has to be a downside to any sportsbook app, and perhaps the biggest problem with the BetBull app is that (at the present time) although there are opportunities for in-play betting, there is no live streaming available. Only a few sports markets offer live betting through this sportsbook, however, one unique feature that makes the lack of live streaming less irritating is the ability to chat online with other punters who have bet on the same market.
Despite this negative point, BetBull is still a very innovative bookmaker with a well-crafted app that puts functionality, usability and customer engagement at the heart of its business. The app’s design is completely unique when compared to the rest of the market at the current time thanks to its gamification elements that allow for a more interactive and engaging experience for even the hardest to please punters. While there are a few features that are missing and that can be found on rival mobile sites, such as a casino or in-play wagering opportunities, the app’s social networking possibilities and leaderboards set it apart from the competition.
The BetBull app offers seamless functionality with speedy bet placement and for those who are struggling with any element of their experience, the support ticket system and in-app support centre which are available 24/7 mean that getting assistance whenever it is required is a breeze. There are also numerous avenues through which bettors can contact the sportsbook’s representatives. The live chat function is quick and easy to access and is likely the fastest way possible to get essential support, however there is also an email address which punters can use if they prefer. In addition, for those who would prefer to use social media to contact BetBull, it’s possible to make contact via Facebook or Twitter.
BetBull only offers a few banking options for punters, which could be another negative point for this sportsbook. Those who prefer the traditional options of Visa or Mastercard will be happy since both of these methods are available. However, for those who are looking for a little more variety or more modern online banking options, there are only a couple of other methods to select from. Skrill and Neteller are the only two such online possibilities, and this could be considered to be a negative point, especially when considering that many of this sportsbook’s rivals offer a much broader choice of banking methods.
One further positive feature of the BetBull platform is (from what we have seen) that it offers very decent odds for some top sporting events. Punters can rest assured of outstanding value on their bets, and those who prefer football and basketball for their bets will be guaranteed the best odds of all, with BetBull often paying out odds of more than 95% – some of the best odds in the business.
When looking at the overall picture, there is a lot going for the BetBull sports betting app. Despite its relative newness on the scene, in a short space of time it has proved to be a reliable licensed and regulated operator with an app that is quick and easy to download, even on Android devices. It is also one of the most innovative and creative operators on the market at the moment, with its ‘app only’ approach to sports betting. Its app has been seamlessly designed for speedy operation and intuitive functioning that even complete beginners can get to grips with easily. The social media functionality is another major feature of this site, and its gamification elements and loyalty scheme truly sets it apart from the crowd when it comes to punter engagement and interaction as well as value for money. While the choice of sports markets may not be quite as deep as those offered by the bigger names in the business, there is still plenty of choice to meet the needs of most punters, and there are both traditional and more unusual markets to pick from. With some of the highest odds in the business, the negative points such as the lack of live streaming and the poor selection of banking methods available can be overlooked. Plus, the knowledgeable customer support team seems to be available as and when required. BetBull has a lot to offer bettors of all kinds, whether highly experienced in sports betting or whether brand new to venturing into the sports betting markets.
