Betfair Mobile App Review

Betfair are an excellent online betting site. We would actually go as far to say that they are one of the best betting sites, if not the best in the UK. Betfair are a very unique bookmaker, that offer traditional betting formats, such as customer v bookmaker, but also offer the best betting exchange platform of any bookmaker, which is customer v customer. The betting exchange markets can also be accessed on the official Betfair mobile app. The betting app can be downloaded across a range of mobile devices and it is a well optimised app that lets you access everything that Betfair has to offer. Using the betting app is more convenient as it allows you to bet anywhere, at any time on the go. So, whether you are waiting for public transport, wanting to pass time or just wanting to place a bet, using the mobile app is a very efficient and fast way of doing so.

In this review, we will take a look at the different features on the mobile app and also compare it to other betting apps on the market, so that you can decide whether or not this is the betting app for you!

Mobile App Features:

The Betfair app runs smoothly on a great operating system, so that there is little freezing or buffering on the app. This is something that all customers will be looking for on a betting app. If there are no crashes or freezes then it means that you won’t miss out on any offers of betting odds, this is especially handy when it comes to features such as in-play and cashing out. The Betfair theme that we are all familiar with and recognise straight away, is replicated onto the betting app. Do not worry about not being able to navigate the app, as it follows the same lay out and structure as the betting website.

Betfair have an excellent betting exchange feature, which is you are not familiar with what it is, it allows you to get better betting odds on selections than what the bookmaker is willing to offer you, because the odds are coming from other customers, who you are essentially playing against. The betting exchange feature can function on the betting app. We certainly recommend trying the betting exchange feature if you haven’t before, Betfair are actually willing to offer you a welcome bonus for betting exchange.

Betfair thrive in football and horse racing betting. They offer a great range of betting markets in terms of the list of sports that you can bet on, and also markets within these sports. Horse Racing and Football are markets that Betfair have spent a lot of focus and time on. Customers can bet on unique outcomes within these markets and can really get creative. Betfair have some competitive odds to go with these markets too.

It is also the little things that are very helpful on the app. Little features such as the search bar that customers can use in order to navigate the site and find their way around the different markets, make the app more efficient. Also having tabs on the market that will allow you to get to places within a click.

Welcome Bonus & Promotions:

Betfair have a massive variety of promotions for customers to claim. It begins with the welcome bonus and then there is a whole list of existing customer offers. These promotions are going to help you improve your betting experience. You can use the bonus funds to experience the excellent range of betting markets and also have more money to play with.

If we start off by looking at the welcome bonus associated with Betfair, customers can claim up to £100 in free bets. This is a very lucrative bonus offer that customers can certainly get excited about. These free bet funds can be sued on any of the markets on Betfair, except for the betting exchange, which has its own bonus.

Other promotions that customers can claim at Betfair include: Best odds guaranteed, risk free bets, other free bet bonuses, refer a friend bonus, live streaming promotion, reward points.

In-Play Betting:

The in-play betting market is constantly growing. It is a market where customers are able to predict what they think will happen next in an event, whilst it is underway. A quick example could be predicting the next goal scorer of a football match. This is a new and fun way of betting. Betfair are a great bookmaker that get very creative with this form of betting, they allow customers to predict the strangest of betting outcomes, and also gives them rewarding betting odds.

As well as in-play betting, Betfair provide a live streaming service. This is a unique feature that only a select few bookmakers actually provide to their customers. The live streaming feature can be used on certain sports, all you need to do is place a small wager of at least £1 and then you can watch that fixture live through the betting app. It is mainly used on horse racing, so you can bet on a horse and then watch the horse race live.

Cash Out Feature:

Betfair allow their customers to cash out on particular bets. The cash out option allows customers to take a portion of the total bet amount without having to see out the full bet. For example if you were betting on a football match and your team was winning 2-1 in the 75th minute, you may decide to cash out for half of the total bet value, as you are worried that your bet may be unsuccessful when the football match has finished. This is a useful betting feature as it stops you from walking away with nothing, and if your bet was to lose, then at least you cashed out and took away some money. However, it can also be frustrating if your bet does end up winning, but you cashed out early and therefore haven’t won the whole amount, it depends how you look at it.

How to Download:

The Betfair betting app is extremely easy to download, it can be accessed on iOS and Android devices. Betfair have an official mobile app, on the app you can access all of the betting features that you can see on the desktop betting website.

If you have an iOS device, then simply head over to the iOS app store and search for the Betfair betting app. Download the app for free and then log into your betting account. Your account details can also be saved, so you do not have to keep re-entering them every time you want to log in.

For Android devices, customers will have to head over to the google play store, where they can locate the Betfair app. The betting app does not use up much memory at all. You can have your login and payment details saved on the app as well. Once you have downloaded the app, you are free to access it anywhere at any time.


It is clear to tell that from this review, we strongly recommend Betfair as a betting site and encourage you to choose Betfair as a new betting site. Their mobile app is one of the best that we have come across and it offers everything that most punters need. This is a very competitive betting app and we are extremely excited about it. If you like the look of it, then sign up with Betfair today or even just download their free mobile app and have a look around.
