App Watch

When it comes to betting apps, I have tried a few over a period of time, in order to ascertain which one ticks all of the boxes, and works best for my set of needs as a sports better. Today we’ll have a look at the top Android betting app, the Betfair app. As an Android user, this has been the best betting app I have used by a long shot. Personally, football is my favorite sport on which to bet; so my testimony of the Betfair app comes from using it mostly for placing football bets.

The interface and general user experience:

I am the first to admit that I am not a technological whizz. I know how to work my devices, but I am no expert –I need my apps to be designed in a way that is easy and intuitive to use. Some apps, in my experience, are complicated to navigate and so overcrowded with information and text, that it makes me want to give up trying to use it! However, I have most certainly not had that experience with the Betfair app. It is well-designed and easy to use as a first timer. Especially given that placing sports bets is something you need to do in a timeous manner; you cannot afford to be stuck, trying to figure out how to use the app! In addition, you need a bug free app too; Betfair has yet to give me any issues. This comes as a wonderful experience as so many other applications I use, freeze all the time! The way in which your account is clear and simple to understand; and you are able to check your account history too.

The bonuses and benefits:

I have to say that I am incredibly impressed with the type and value of bonuses and benefits that you get as a Betfair app user. To start with, they consistently offer some of the best odds, out of all bookkeepers. But beyond this, they also give you a very generous £30 in free matched bets, when you deposit a mere £10. This really is a wonderful bonus, as it gives you more money to bet with; thus increasing your odds of winning big! on your device or scan the QR code.

Overall, my experiences with Betfair thus far have been nothing but wonderful –I have won a decent amount of money too! There is one seemingly tricky part of acquiring the application, since you cannot download it directly from the PlayStore. But while this may seem daunting at first –because you have never done it before –if you follow the very simple instructions provided, you will see that is incredibly simple to do, and only involves ticking a few boxes and downloading some APK files. Pretty simple stuff! If you are new to mobile sports betting, or are becoming increasingly dissatisfied with your current betting app, check out Betfair – you will not regret it!
