The iPhone might be the big dog when it comes to the decade’s popular smartphone, but Android-powered devices are just as successful.
Betting apps are available across the board, with most operators now offering you the chance to place a bet on the go, whether that’s on iOS or Android.
Today, we’re going to take a specific look at what’s on the Android market, find out what most of the bookmakers offer with their free bet packages, and also pick out our top five sports betting apps for you to download.
When it comes to betting online, you’ll struggle to find a better all-around experience than that given to you by bet365.
As one of the biggest online bookmakers on the planet, not just in the UK, their app really does live up to their reputation and is one of the best available.
With so much variety and betting options to choose from, it’s a great credit to their developers for managing to get them all onto one small screen.
You can easily flick from sport to sport, and the range of betting markets is incredible. If you can’t find it there, then you probably won’t be able to place a bet on it anywhere else.
Although they might not be the biggest fish in the pond or have much of a history on the high street, 888Sport regularly punch above their weight and have an excellent Android app to boot.
They have a strong sponsorship portfolio within the sport, putting their name on many football clubs in the UK, and recently becoming the official UK betting partner of the NFL.
In their excellently built app, they have created a brilliant betting experience to rival any of their competitors, especially when it comes to how easy it is to use.
With over 2000 live sports betting opportunities on offer each week, you can glide between the markets, and even check out specific events through their search function.
The quality even extends to their customer service offering on the app, which is available around the clock, with help given 24/7.
3. William Hill
Unlike 888sport or bet365, William Hill not only has a great app to keep you entertained on your Android, but they also have the firepower of being a high street stalwart in the UK.
They are one of Britain’s most recognizable sports betting brands after centuries worth of history in the country, and with that comes an awful lot of respect from betting punters.
Often, that history may come from complacency, but William Hill is certainly up to speed regarding its app. Although it has a fairly simple design, it is pretty seamless and is as technically sound as you could hope for.
There are more than enough betting opportunities on there as well, and with some of the most competitive odds in the industry, you’ll struggle to find better offers and promotions from any of their competitors. However, there are a series of readymade betting software, you can try them out and see for yourself.
Like William Hill, Coral has years of industry respect thanks to their place on the high street in British towns and cities.
Thanks to that, the app matches the brand by offering a huge selection of traditional betting markets and coupons on your phone, so even though the shops are available, you get just the same experience at your fingertips.
Like many betting apps, the different markets are easy to find and navigate, even on a small screen and you should have no problem placing your bet.
With Coral, you can always rely on that extra edge, which on the app, comes in the shape of the build-a-bet feature. This gives you a choice to get a price on exactly what you are looking for, whether that be on horse racing, football, or any other sports market that they offer.
