Bet365 is finally present in the US after a long time of anticipation. Residents of New Jersey can access the platform including its mobile platform that has seen the launch of a mobile application. Bet365 on mobile has seen both Bet365 mobile app android and Bet365 mobile app iOS rolled out. Like most of the people, I spend a lot of time on my phone hence the availability of Bet365 on mobile was positive. I downloaded the app to see the various products and services on offer and below is the Bet365 mobile app review;

How to download the Bet365 mobile app
As earlier stated, the application was available to both Android and iOS users. Being a staunch Samsung user, I had one avenue to download the app. This was directly from the website. The app was not present in the Google Play Store as I learned that the platform does not allow any real money wagering apps in their store. So with one option left, I followed the following steps in downloading the Bet365 mobile app;
- On my phone, I opened up Chrome and followed the link www.nj.bet365.com
- Once I was on the landing page, I clicked on the option ‘Download’ on the top-right side of the page. (Bet365 automatically recognized my device’s operating system hence did not prompt me to choose between an Android app or iOS app)
- A pop-up notification with the option to download was presented. Once I toggled it, the ‘Bet365 mobile app apk.’ started to download
- After the download process was complete, I clicked on the option ‘Open’
- I was supposed to ‘Install’ the application and at the click of it, I was led to my phone ‘Settings’ section where I had to ‘Enable installation from unknown sources’
- After this was done, the application was successfully installed and I was ready to start my Bet365 mobile journey!
I researched the process followed by iOS users and this is what I came across; Those using the App Store avenue would directly search and download the application with the installation process done automatically by the system. Those who would opt to use the download link from the Bet365 website would follow the following steps;
- Use phone browser preferably Safari to follow the link www.nj.bet365.com
- Click on the option ‘Download’ on the landing page (Platform automatically recognizes the device’s operating system)
- After downloading, the installation process starts
- After a successful installation, the app is accessible from the home screen and ready for use.
Bet365 for Mobile Review: Play on the App
Play Poker on mobile
Bet365 is a giant platform offering many platforms including poker in some of the many regions it operates in. But with its US launch recently, I noted that Bet365 had laid focus on the sportsbook and it remains a matter of time before the Poker platform is provided. For now, I only anticipate.
Sports bet on Bet365
The Bet365 NJ mobile app welcomed me to a well-designed platform with all the options easy-to-find. The landing page had the options ‘A-Z’, Join, and Log in at the top with the control options at the bottom page. Options laid out included Sports, In-Play, and Search. Through them, my interaction and navigation process on the platform was made easier.
Once I toggled the ‘A-Z’ option at the top-right side of my page, I had the full list of all the games that were provided by Bet365. Some of the top games provided included;
The app was well-organized such that after a click on one of the sports games, I would have the option of choosing events coming up in the next 3 hours, 12 hours or 24 hours. What’s more, a click on an event would provide statistics on the team’s current form, their current position, and the results of their 5 previous meetings.
Additionally, a ‘bell’ icon was also provided which if toggled would give me live alerts of the game. I would also customize the alerts to my liking by choosing if I wanted goals alerts, cards alert, penalties alerts, substitutions alerts, and so on.
I was impressed by the various top events in various leagues, competitions, tournaments, and challenges incorporated on the app. They included NBA, NHL, NCAAF, NCAAB, ITF, EPL (English Premier League), France Ligue 1, Spanish La Liga, German Bundesliga, and Italian Serie A.
Bet365 had provided various markets to choose from. I found this impressive in that it offered me a lot of betting opportunities. Soccer, for example, had the following markets to choose from; Full-Time Result, Full-Time Result (Enhanced Prices), Goals Over/Under, Draw No Bet, Double Chance, Goals Odd/Even, Asian Spread & Goal Line, and more. To put this into context, some top league events such as the English Premier League games had some markets going well above 150.
Various betting options were also offered on the platform. Some of them included the following; Moneyline, Totals, Spread, Parlays, Teasers, Singles, and Futures.
Live Broadcast on mobile
I was taken aback on the realization that some of the games I had placed bets on would be available for live streaming and audio support. I would watch some of the top games through the ‘live streaming’ option offered by Bet365. Games that were available for live streaming would have a ‘Play’ icon alongside them. Still, if I wanted to check out the scheduled events available for streaming, I would click on the ‘View all In-Play’ option and click on the option ‘Schedule’. All games with the tag ‘Video’ would be available for streaming. Bet365 live streaming on mobile was available in the following games; Soccer, Basketball, Hockey, Tennis, Golf, and more.
To live stream any event, I was required to have an account with a positive balance or have an account that had placed a bet within the last 24 hours.
Bet365 also offered audio support to some of the games. Audio support opened up an avenue where I would catch up with some sports podcasts and live commentaries on some of the sports games offered on the app. The games with the audio support feature available would have a ‘speaker’ option alongside them.
To use the Live Streaming service you will need to be logged in and have a funded account or to have placed a bet in the last 24 hours.
Bet365 mobile app’s other assets
Further from the sports, I was equally impressed with the various features/assets Bet365 provided through the app. They included;
The cash-out option is one feature I anticipate to find in any sportsbook. Bet365 had offered this feature and through it, I would take charge of my bet before the event was finished. I would either lock in profits, if my bet was winning, by withdrawing my winnings or part of them or minimize losses, if my bet was losing, by withdrawing part of my stake.
Bet365 offered me three types of cash-out. They included;
- Full cash-out – All my winnings/remaining stake would be withdrawn
- Partial cash-out – Part of my winnings would be withdrawn
- Auto cash-out – The system would withdraw on my behalf if the threshold value I set while placing the bet was met.
Many platforms are giving out an option where players can customize their bets to their liking. Bet365 was not different with bet builder finding its way to the app. The feature was tailored for the soccer section where I would make my unique bet of up to six selections in different markets, Bet365 would then price it as a single bet with better odds. I would choose from the following markets;
- Player to Score Corners
- Player Card Cards
- Result Free Kicks
- Double Chance Throw-Ins
- Total Goals Goal Kicks
- Both Teams to Score Half-Time/Full-Time
Edit Bet was another feature tailored to help a player customize his/her bet. The feature went in handy with cash-out whereby if I wanted to edit my bet, I would cash-out my existing bet to place a newly edited bet. This means that the cashed out money would be used to make my newly edited bet.
My newly edited bet would consist of either a selection addition, swap or removal. Additionally, the feature allowed me to change my bet type to any parlay option and further increase risk on some of my unsettled bets.
In-play betting/live betting was another feature provided by the platform on the app. The feature allowed me to place bets on any live game. The advantage that came with this is that I would take advantage of the enhanced odds to maximize returns. The live games could be viewed directly on the landing page at the section ‘Live In-Play’.
Services on Bet365 mobile app
Bar the sports and features provided on the app, some of the services I would access on the platform included the following;
- Creation of a new account
- Deposit and withdraw funds
