We explore some of the best UK betting apps available for Android in an easy-to-digest list.

The landscape of gambling is constantly changing and evolving, with the widespread commercial success of internet-ready smartphones altering legalised gambling across the world. With so many adverts, offers and apps each claiming to be the best betting app around, we took the time to test each one out.  Please note that none of these apps are available in the US due to the legal landscape.


Here’s our diagnosis.

Coral: the all-rounder one


If you don’t have any particular affinity for any one bookmaker, market or bonus type, it’s possible the Coral app for Android is your best bet. The app offers a plethora of options in sports betting, card games and casino options like roulette and online slot machines. There is usually a fair introduction bet for new customers averaging around the £/€/$20 mark, and more recently the popular bookmaker has begun to push increased accumulator odds through email marketing and, for the savvy gambler, via its Twitter feed. The easy accessibility of the app from your Android, tablet or smartphone makes the combination of limited time offers and quick access an enticing prospect. A great choice for those who like gambling across the board and are prone to spontaneous bets.

Ladbrokes: the big bonus one


Ladbrokes is an extremely popular bookmakers within the UK, with a large presence online, in the media and on highstreets over a significant period of time. Seamlessly linking sportsbook betting and casino games, just one account is required to use either option on your Android device or tablet. With a renowned brand and fairly good odds across the board, one of the most standout aspects of using the Ladbrokes app is the bumper bonus for new customers. New users of Ladbrokes are entitled to a whopping £50 matched bet bonus, leaving the option to make guaranteed profit for shrewd gamblers or a potentially huge windfall for the more adventurous. The app is reflective of the company, with a clean and sharp interface that makes navigation easy. An impressive app with an alluring bonus.

Paddy Power: the quirky one


The Paddy Power app is among the most popular betting apps on Android devices across the UK. This is largely down to a strong brand name promoted through hilarious advertising and a range of standout offers on a very regular basis. As well as a generous signup bonus, Paddy Power pride themselves on frequent bonuses that often seem too good to be true; money back as a free bet if high profile footballers score or paying an extra place in horse racing is a regular occurrence. The app itself is fairly well developed, with a good consistency and simplicity across all features, but the real advantage to going with Paddy Power is to take advantage of their many unique offers.

BetVictor: the best odds one


Formerly known as Victor Chandler, BetVictor has seen an increased presence on our screens since a rejuvenating rebranding process coupled with an increase in advertising. In an industry rife with impossible-to-resist introductory offers, BetVictor prides itself on offering sensible, ultra-competitive prices across the board. Although they do not always offer the very best prices, if you’re only planning to use one betting app rather than alternate between a few, BetVictor may be a safe bet. The app is reflective of the brand, a simple black background with straightforward selections. Deposits must be made separately to bet selections which can be slightly slower than other apps, and in-play betting also closes before some rival companies. For those who prefer consistency over gimmicks and don’t like looking around for the best odds, BetVictor is a shrewd choice.

William Hill: the user friendly one


As soon as the app is opened it is clear that plenty of time was put into the William Hill Android app. On Android or tablet the app runs smoothly and, with a multitude of pictures to help guide you through the markets, it is just as easy for an amateur to pick up and use as it is for a seasoned gambler. Whilst some apps can become confusing when trying to utilise too many betting markets, the easy-to-navigate homescreen of the William Hill app distinguished everything very clearly and once you have chosen a market your options therein are also very clear, making accumulators and E/W finishes a doddle. An ideal choice for anybody who isn’t familiar with betting apps, but by no means limited to just beginners.
