The Bet365 app has several standout features that we love. Quick access to in-play markets is the most striking with the app displaying the main current in-play events at a glance. Current scores are shown and access to further in-play events is available via the touch of a button.
The other impressive feature we like is the availability of live video and streaming of in-play events. Viewing is simple: once logged in just navigate to the in-play feature or sport homepage and click on the watch icon to discover what is available. It should be noted, however, that not all in-play events are available for live streaming, although events that are shown are clearly indicated and upcoming live streaming is highlighted.
Some features available via the online website, such as the very comprehensive form and stats section, are not accessible via the mobile and tablet on the move app, but this is a minor concern given the overall accessibility provided via the app.
Look and Feel
The app is identical in appearance to the website and looks good on the smaller screen. The layout is well organised and free of clutter which makes movement around the app and accessing its features straightforward. With so many different features and such an array of different betting options the site could easily have become overcrowded and messy, but the reverse is true. The colour scheme is easy on the eye and the app is well designed with quick-access buttons for major sports across the top and the main features laid out in handy sections in the main body of the screen. When accessing the app, users are met by the main features of In-Play betting, highlighted pre-match bets, top coupons and special offers. Navigation around the app is quick and simple and makes for a hassle-free betting experience.
Betting and Markets
Bet365 offers a bewildering array of markets and betting options ranging from the usual recognised sports to more obscure events (Bandy and Trotting anyone?). In addition, on the move customers can access the online casino which contains a variety of options from Blackjack and Roulette to slots and games. Whilst some betting options and markets contained on the online site are not available via the mobile app (financials and bingo for example), mobile and on the move punters are more than adequately catered for by the mobile and tablet service.
Overall, the Bet365 on the move app is a comprehensive, well designed and easy to use app that enables users to access a huge array of pre-event and in-play sports markets. With its’ ease of navigation, speed and user-friendly layout, betting on the move has never been easier. With the added bonus of mobile streaming of live events, the app is in the vanguard of mobile betting and deserving of the plaudits that is receives.
