Betfred Mobile App – review of betting app for iOS & Android (2023)

You can enjoy the Betfred mobile betting application (Betting App) from your mobile phone via several different platforms. The mobile log in can happen either from your web browser to their specially optimised site, or you can download one of their custom Apps (android and iOS available).

Mobile App overview

The Betfred mobile app allows you to use all of the features of a Betfred account accessed from the website. You are offered odds on the vast range of sports they cover including mainstream football, horse racing, tennis, snooker, boxing, and cricket as well as the more niche badminton, darts and ESports. The Betfred app allows pre match and also “In Play” bets, and allows access to live streaming of the games and the ability to “Cash Out” your bets. Rounded off with complete account management and on tap dedicated customer support, their betting App really is the complete package.

Betfred Mobile App Sign-Up Bonus

Betfred offer the same bonus to their customers regardless of what platform they use to sign up with. If you go to the website from a PC, or the mobile site from your phone, or download a betting App it is all the same. The current Betfred new user bonus is a very generous £30 of “Free bets” after your first £10 bet at odds over evens has settled. After you have entered your username and password the next screen asks you to select a currency, after that remember to enter the sports promo code “SPORTS60”. (You will also get 60 free spins on slots in the Casino too). The £30 of “Free bets” will be available within 48hrs of your first bet settling and is usually the next day. Once credited you can enter bets as you would with your balance but now on the betslip you simply tick the box that says “use promo cash” and your wager will come from that bonus balance rather than your “real cash” balance.  Your stake amount is not returned if the bet wins.

Betfred App key features


Of course the Betfred mobile App allows you to “Cash-Out” your bets any time, and anywhere. If you have an open bet then you can end the bet early rather than waiting for the event to finish. There are a number of reasons that you may want to do this, maybe nerves get the better of you and you do not want to see your winning bet lose to a last minute goal, or perhaps your bet is already losing and you think the writing is on the wall and you want to salvage something from the situation. To use the “Cash Out” feature you will see under your betslip the option to close the bet early by pushing the option.


One of the main advantages of a betting App is that it allows you to bet “In Play”, that is betting on a game which has already started and is currently underway. The Betfred betting App has helpfully arranged all the “In Play” games under one heading from within the App itself. From there you can pick the sport you wish to bet on, and simply scroll down to find the game you are watching.

Bet Builder #PickYourPunt:

The Betfred mobile App offers customers the change to use its “Bet Builder”, known as #PickYourPunt. This applies to selected football matches and allows customers to build bets involving many variables into one bet, sort of like an accumulator, but all on the same game. The Betfred mobile App lists all the current variables customers have requested, handily grouped into odds ranges, and you can select and bet on any that you fancy. If there is something that you want which is not listed, then you can Tweet them directly to have it added, using the hashtag #PickYourPunt

Live streaming

The Betfred app has a free sports live streaming service that covers many sports from all around the world. The full list of sports covered by the Betfred App are:

Horse racing, Football, Tennis, Basketball, Badminton, Ice Hockey, Volleyball, Handball

To view a stream you need to be logged in to your Betfred account and have money in your account. You do not need to have bet on the event which you are watching EXCEPT Horse racing which requires at least a £1 bet on the race to stream it. To see what is available to watch click the “Watch Live” link in the main menu. Live streams are only available to customers physically present in the UK and Ireland.
