Betfair developers have created two apps – Sportsbook Apk and Exchange App. Both apps have Android and iOS versions.
Betfair has been always one of the biggest innovators in the world of sports betting and in all respects. The mobile platform that is offered on the page, though, is mainly directed to sports betting, and due to this casino and poker rooms fans from Betfair will be probably few or at least quite disappointed.
We have been still waiting for apps for Betfair Casino and Betfair Poker to be developed.
How to download Betfair apps?
1. Visit Apple Store
2. Use the search and find Betfair. You will see both apps as first search results.
3. Download and install the app / apps on your iPhone or iPad
Downloading Android apps is a bit harder because of Google’s policy not to allow gambling apps with real money in Google Play market. However, the process will not take you more than 2-3 minutes.
Enter your phone settings and then press on “Applications”. Now, enable downloading apps from unknown sources.
Visit Betfair website from your browser and click on “Download” link.
Download and install
It is recommended for your devices to be with version 7 or higher (for iOS) and version 2.1 or higher (for Android). If your device uses an older OS version or you owe Windows or a Blackberry device, you can still bet on Betfair, but only via its mobile browser version.
Design and Functions
As you can expect from a mobile platform of one of the most modern sports betting website like Betfair, no doubt, it provides almost all functions and markets for betting experience that are parts of the company’s desktop page version. The colour scheme is preserved and the order of the desktop version is similar here at the mobile platform (of course, the order is a big changed according to the size of a certain device since there are less mobile device screens, but the main theme is the same).
Navigation through apps seems quite simple which is mainly thanks to the well-ordered home page. Here, links to the most popular markets with the most popular events are offered. Next to them you will see links to customer’s profile, as well as the most searched links at all.
The bet slip is always placed at the right top on the screen so it can be always only a click away.
The only weak point, to us, is the division of the Sportsbook and the betting exchange at two different apps, which might be quite annoying to those punters who actively use both Betfair services.
This weak point, though, can be left behind especially if considering the high efficiency of the app, including all of these extras:
- Updates of the odds and the live bets in real time, as well as of the pre-match bets without the necessity of refreshing the app.
- Possibility to watch in real time thousands of different sports events per year
- Possibility to create an account and to make deposits directly to the app
- Possibility to use cash out and acca edge functions on the page
