Since its merger with Paddy Power in 2015, Betfair is part of the world’s biggest online gambling company. It has become an industry leader in mobile betting and gambling, offering UK punters iOS and Android apps for every type of gaming, including sports betting, exchange betting, poker, casino games, bingo, arcade games and a live casino as well.
With Betfair, you can bet live and in-play and enjoy features like cash out and Best Odds Guaranteed in the sports betting app, play high quality slots in the casino app, or enjoy a range of fast and fun games in the bingo app. Poker players can get in on the action as well, or if you prefer the all-round casino experience, you can play in the live casino app.
You can download and then move between one Betfair app and another quickly and simply, and so betting or gaming on your mobile or tablet is very convenient, as you can manage everything from the one Betfair account.
Once you’ve set up your account, you can use fingerprint log in (if your device enables this), or create a 4-digit pin for quick and easy access to your bets. This also lets you log in to any Betfair app. There are special offers available every day, including enhanced price specials, improved odds on first goalscorer, and single match accas. You also get Best Odds Guaranteed on every UK and Irish race meeting.
With the Betfair sports betting app, you can bet live and in-play on a huge variety of sports, both locally and internationally.
You can set up push notifications for scores, results and race cards in the Betfair Android app or if you play on iOS, and this means you never miss a bet. You can also take advantage of live streaming of all UK and Irish race meetings, as well as selected sports events from around the world, including football, tennis, basketball and snooker.
We give the sports betting app 5 out of 5 for its excellent range of markets and live streaming of races and sport, as well as the features like cash out and in-play betting.
The Betfair app is available for both Apple iPhone and iPad (iOS 8.0+) and Android (4.4+), or you can play games directly in the browser of your hand-held device, so you can play on any platform or device with the same account.
The Betfair casino app has around 150 Playtech mobile slots, as well as table games like blackjack and roulette, table poker and live dealer games. Games are optimised for play on the smaller screens of phones and tablets, so you get a clear and clean gaming experience whether you’re connected over wi-fi, 3G or 4G. You can play real money slots or for free in demo mode.
Making deposits and withdrawals is quick and straightforward, and you also get easy access to other features like customer support and special promotions.
The Betfair casino app has more than 150 Playtech mobile slots to choose from. This includes hot new release games, well-known titles like Chinese Kitchen and Dolphin Reef, and a large selection of themed video slots, like:
When you play Betfair mobile slots, you can also enjoy a large selection of progressive jackpot games from the new DC Comics superheroes series and Age of Gods series of games. You can also play other Playtech progressive jackpot games like Gladiator, Beach Life and Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven.
Also, you can play Betfair mobile live dealer games in the app, including casino classics such as roulette, blackjack and baccarat, as well as Hi-Lo, 3 card brag, Sic Bo and casino hold’em. There are other table, card and dice games as well, including a selection of table poker games.
New players can claim a 100% up to £100 deposit bonus. Giving you a starting balance of £200. With over 400 casino games, what will you play?
Overall, our Betfair review rating is 4 stars out of 5. We like that you can choose your Welcome Bonus and that you can play live dealer games as well, but while the slots are all high quality Playtech games, the range isn’t as large as in some other comparable casino apps.
You can download the Betfair Android app from Google Play (search for ‘Betfair Arcade – Play Rainbow Riches and Roulette’), or for iPhone and iPad (iOS 8.0+) from the App Store (type in ‘Betfair Arcade Games’). You can also play Betfair slots and other games directly in the browser of your device.
The UI is clean and straightforward with a search function to help you find your favourites quickly, and you can also contact customer support, make deposits and withdrawals, and take part in promotions when you play in the app.
The Betfair Arcade app features more than 250 mobile slots and casino games by NetEnt, Barcrest and Cayetano Gaming, including exclusive games that aren’t available elsewhere. You also get a good choice of classic roulette and blackjack games as well.
As with all of the Betfair app range, if you have a sports betting, poker or bingo account, you can use the same log in details to access the Arcade app.
If you already have a Betfair account, you can use this to log in the Arcade app, giving you even more gaming options with a selection of more than 250 slots games to choose from. The app features well-known and popular NetEnt mobile slots such as Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest, along with games by a range of other developers, including Barcrest, Cayetano Gaming, Blueprint Gaming, Red Tiger and Bally.
There are slots games in all categories, including themed video slots and progressive jackpot games like Isle O Plenty, Golden Temple, Genie Jackpots, and Siberian Storm. If you like Asian-themed slots games, you can play selected titles under the Macau tab, where the games include Jade Charms, Three Kingdoms, Epic Journey and Lucky Fortune Cat.
Roulette and blackjack also feature in the Betfair Arcade app, with several different varieties of each game, including exclusive Betfair editions.
Our overall Betfair review rating is 4 ½ out of 5 stars for the Arcade app. We like the range of games and the fact that you can play slots by different developers, but the lack of any really big payout progressive jackpot slots is what prevents us from giving this app full marks.
You can download the free Betfair live casino app for Apple iPhone and iPad (iOS 8.0+) from the App Store (search for ‘Betfair Live Casino – Play Roulette & Blackjack’). The app for Android smartphones and tablets is available via a QR code on the Betfair desktop site. Alternatively, you can play live dealer games by going to mcasino.betfair.com in the browser of your handheld device.
There’s an excellent selection of live dealer games streamed in real time in HD to your mobile or tablet, dealt by professional dealers from a purpose-built studio. Games offer a variety of table limits so there are options to suit every bankroll.
It is quick and easy to sign up for a new account in the Live Casino app, but if you already have a Betfair account you can use this to log in to the live casino app as well.
The Live Casino app offers you live dealer games exclusively, and so there is more choice and variety here than at many other comparable sites. Games are available 24/7 and dealt by professional dealers, and streamed in real time HD to your smartphone or tablet.
In the Betfair Live Casino app, you can choose your dealer, as well as the stakes that you play for. There is a variety of different roulette games (including French roulette), several versions of blackjack and baccarat, as well as 3 card brag, casino hold-em, and Hi-Lo.
If you already have a Betfair account at the sports book, casino, poker or bingo sites, you can use this to log in on the live casino app.
Not many of the casinos that we recommend offer you exclusive live dealer apps, so for this reason alone our Betfair review rating is 4 ½ stars out of 5. The range of games is good and there are table limits to suit everyone so the app is very accessible. The quality of the HD streaming is also amongst the best that we have seen.
The Betfair Android app is available for free from Google Play (type in ‘Betfair Exchange Betting – Football & Horse Racing’), or if you’re on an iPhone or iPad you can download the Betfair iOS app from the App Store (look for ‘Betfair Exchange Betting’).
The Betfair Exchange app offers you a different betting experience than at most other sports book sites. Instead of betting against the bookies, you’re betting directly with other punters around the world. This means more markets, more variety in prices, and more flexibility as you can either set your own odds or take the odds offered by someone else. You have the opportunity to get in on a huge range of markets from around the world, with the advantage that you can get a variety of different prices on the same bet all at the one site.
You can choose either to BACK, which is the sort of bet that most of us would recognise as this means you are betting on a particular outcome to happen e.g., a horse to win or a team to score first, etc. However, you can also LAY, which in a sense means that you are taking the bookie’s role and offering odds on an outcome not happening. In either case, you can set your own odds and if another punter takes the bet, it’s game on.
However, if you’re not able to get a taker for a particular bet you can take the Betfair SP, which is a price that’s given based on all the bets made on an event by both backers and layers. This price is a reflection of the market as it actually stands because it’s based on what the punters think will happen, not a price that Betfair has set unilaterally.
Although the Betfair Betting Exchange app operates on different principles to most mobile sportsbooks, you can still get all of the features that we have come expect from the best sports betting apps.
For instance, you get best odds on all televised and National Hunt racing (based on the Betfair SP), live in-play betting and Cash Out on bets at any time. You can enjoy racing and sports from around the world with live streaming, and you also get a full live scores and updates service.
The range of markets available on the Exchange app is comparable with other more conventional sportsbook apps, so you can bet on horse racing, European and international football and North American sports, with in-play markets available 24/7.
Our Betfair review score of the Exchange app is 5 stars out of 5. It offers UK punters a mobile betting experience like no other, and so you have more flexibility in how you bet and greater variety in the odds you can get.
The Betfair poker app is available for Apple iPhone and iPad (iOS 8.0+) from the App Store (search for ‘Betfair Poker – Real Money Online Poker and Games’), while the Betfair Android app (4.1+) can be downloaded for free from Google Play.
At Betfair poker, you can play in a range of cash games, Twister Sit n’ Go tournaments and scheduled events, and there are different buy-in rates to suit players at all experience levels.
The Betfair iOS app and the app for Android give you access to a great range of poker cash games, tournaments and special promotions. Cash games are available with micro stakes or you can play with the high rollers, with games kicking off as soon as there are two or more players at a table ready to go. Speed poker is a variation of this, where instead of playing at just one table, you play against a pool of players, so if you fold a hand you can instantly move to another table where a new hand is beginning.
Sit n Go tournaments run all at Betfair the time, and to enter you simply find a stake and table that you want to play at and register, and the tournament will begin as soon as the table is full. A variation of this is the Twister tournament, which has a winner-takes-all format and where the prize pool is determined randomly and can be worth up to 1000x the buy in (which is usually between £1-£10). There is also a large number of scheduled tournaments, which can feature six or nine players, or even heads-up play, plus large-scale multi-table events that attract large numbers of players from around the world.
Texas Hold’em is the main game played for both scheduled and sit n go tournaments, along with Omaha and Omaha High/Low.
Our Betfair review rating of the poker app comes in at 5 stars out of 5. The number of tournaments and range of buy-ins means that you can aways find quality gaming action, while the ease of using the app makes it ideal for playing poker on the move.
The Betfair bingo app for Android is available for free from Google Play (type in ‘Betfair Bingo – Real Money Online Bingo and Slots’), or you can download the Betfair iOS app from the App Store. Alternatively, the apps can be downloaded via QR code on the mobile page, or you can play games directly in the browser of your device at mbingo.betfair.com.
There is a packed programme at Betfair bingo, with new games starting all the time and a wide range of ticket prices to suit everyone. You can also buy tickets in advance so that even if you’re not online when a game is being played, you’re still in on the action. Games include 75-ball and 90-ball bingo, as well as speed bingo, jackpot games and other promotions and specials.
In addition to bingo, you can also play mobile slots and scratch cards, take part in promotions and special events, and earn rewards through the loyalty programme. You can also join in the chat rooms to socialise with moderators and other players, and enjoy fun side games as well.
90 ball and 75 ball bingo games are available all the time at Betfair bingo, as well as speed bingo games which are played with 30 balls and last no more than 30 seconds. There are also special progressive jackpot games with enormous prizes, such as Deal or No Deal where the major prize pool grows by £10,000 each day until the feature jackpot prize is won.
There are bingo tickets available at a range of prices and they start for as little as 5p, so everyone can join in the fun. You can buy as many tickets as you want for a game, and tickets can also be purchased in advance so that you are still ‘playing’ even when you’re not online.
You can also play a range of scratch card games, along with mobile slots and progressive jackpot slots games.
Our Betfair review rating of the bingo app is 4 ½ stars out of 5. We like that you can buy tickets in advance for games so that you’re always in the game, no matter where you are or the time of the day, plus the fact that you can play for some big progressive jackpot prizes. Being able to play slots games is also a bonus as it adds a variety to your gaming experience.
