Bet365 Mobile Apps
The gaming world has experienced a revolution in mobile gaming; this is why Bet365 has developed apps that work across different types of mobile operating systems i.e. android 4.0 and above, iOS 5.1.1 or later and windows phone devices. For iOS users, you can get access to the mobile app on iTunes but android users must visit the main website to download the app since Google does not allow gambling apps on android store.
Users must create an account on the bookie’s main website. The website is accessible by typing mobile.bet365.com on the address bar. Select your country of residence or wait for an automatic selection based on your geo location. After this, users must enter their full names and date of birth; everything should be entered correctly because verification by way of valid documentation may be required at a later date. The next step requires users to enter a valid physical address; this step will also be verified. After entering the email and contact details, users will select a username.
Punters have to select their preferred language after which they will be redirected to the homepage. There is a clickable plus (+) option at the bottom of the site; this option allows the user to “add to homepage.” After selecting “add to homepage”, the app will start downloading and it will include the location details, in this case, Canada.
The Android App
The android app is user-friendly and this is clear by the design and quality of the user interface. The app is decent and easy to navigate. The log in button is located at the top of the application and this saves a lot of time especially when the user is bet in-play and he/she needs to place a new bet as quick as possible. The app also allows users to save their login credentials so they don’t have to enter the details every time.
The iOs App
The registration options are identical across all platforms but unlike Google, the iTunes app store has the Bet365 app that is optimized for use on iPad and iPhone gadgets. Before downloading the app, iOS users must create an account on the main website by clicking join at the top right corner. Users on iOS devices can go directly to the app store and download the app from there. After launching the app, iOS users are requested to enter their login credentials.
Windows, Blackberry and other Devices
Those whose devices do not have an official app can access the mobile web site version. There is no notable difference between the mobile apps and the mobile site version. The mobile site version of the app works seamlessly with any phone. The benefit of the mobile site version is, it does not take up any space on your mobile device and this aspect gives it an edge over the apps.
Apps and Mobile Site Walk-through
Apart from the log-in option, the top of the app also holds the following options; in-play, sports, home, and the join option. The default sports that are displayed on the homepage are soccer, horse racing, tennis and basketball. Users can easily customize and change the sports appearing on the homepage as they wish. By scrolling down the main window, users can see all the current in-play games; clicking on each game or event allows the user to view more details.
The ‘Offers” option is located further downwards and it has all the bonuses and offers that are currently available. Below the offers section, players can access games like Casino and Poker; these games may require a different download because they are not always integrated on the same app.
All the functions of the android and iOS apps are well-defined and explained making this app beginner-friendly. Seasoned users who have experienced this mobile application can turn off or customize the notifications so as not to find the system repetitive. The apps have green, yellow and white colors, the trademark colors of this betting company. The colors are incredible to look at especially on high-resolution; the app works in portrait mode, the usual way of holding a phone when calling someone.
The texts on the mobile apps are large enough for users with small resolution displays but this means that there is less information on the display. The advantage is that the app is responsive enough and users will experience no lag when scrolling. Making a deposit is easy, just click on your username on the top of the display and then choose deposit. The payment methods option presents the deposit methods that are available to the user.
The apps contain deposit and cash out options for users in different parts of the world. Placing a bet is easy on the apps and mobile site version, just click on the event that that you wish to wager on and input your preferred bet. This selection will be transferred to your bet slip at the bottom of the screen. Punters can also access live streaming options on any of their favorite sport or event.
