Coral Mobile App – review of betting app for iOS & Android (2023)
The Coral bet app is overall an excellent, user friendly, experience. With quick and easy access to all elements such as the in-play betting feature as well as a variety of popular sports listed only one tap away the general useability of this app is high. As well as this, one touch access to the Coral casino is available, alongside easy cashing out of your bets and fast access to your bet slip. The Coral bet app provides excellent useability and it is easy to install and set up an account on.
The mobile version of the Coral website is incredibly similar to the Coral app. It has the exact same user interface and everything is in the same place so transitioning between the two is simple and easy. Everything stated above about the Coral app especially in regards to user friendliness and useability transfer over exactly to the Coral mobile site.

Mobile app and mobile site compared
It would appear that the mobile site is identical in every way to the mobile app. From the layout to the information displayed every single feature and characteristic of the website opposed to the app is identical in every way. The website is a carbon copy of the app and any skills that can be used on the app can be immediately transferred over to the mobile site.
Mobile bonus offers
1) Welcome bonus
On the Coral betting app there are a few sign up bonuses which you can choose from, found in the “New customer” offers. Currently a free £20 in bets is available after depositing £5 into your account within 14 days of signing up to Coral. These promotions change often so double check when you make your account if this still applies. If it has changed don’t worry as information on the current offer will be easy to find.
2) Existing User bonuses
Although promotions and bonuses are subject to change often depending on sporting events at the time they will almost always show up on the wheel or rotating images displayed on the home page. After swiping through these and locating the bonus you wish to use, simply tap on the image and you will be taken to the promotion page. For example currently there is a free bet up to £10 available if your horse finishes anything less than a length behind the winner, a free £10 bet is credited to your account.Terms and conditions of each promotion are always shown on the information page of said promotion.
On top of this navigating the account section and then the offers and free bets section will show you any offers or free bets currently available to you.

Key Coral app features:
When you “Cash-Out '' your bets this means you take a smaller portion of your potential win (or cut your potential losses) before the result is decided. This allows you to take a guaranteed profit or minimise your loss depending on the new probability of the result, given the current state of the game. For example if a football team you have bet on are winning 2-1, with 5 minutes remaining, the most probable result of the game would be a win for said time. Because of this you can take a large percentage of your potential profit and accept the reduced amount in exchange for a guaranteed win now.
From the image above you can see the options:
1) Coral's own explanation of what “Cash out” is.
2) This lists any bets you may have which are available to cash out.
2) Live betting
Live betting, which is also known as “In play” betting allows you to place bets while the event is still taking place. As the event goes on odds will fluctuate depending on the action taking place during the event. you may wish to use this to bet on the action as it unfolds. To use this feature locate the “in play” section along the bottom bar of the home screen. You will now see the variety of sports available for you to bet on as well as current highlighted live bets whos odds will be constantly changing in front of your eyes. As the odds change the small boxes around them will change in colour to either pink or blue depending whether the odds have improved or worsened as you can see in the image below.
3) Live streaming
Live streaming is a feature inside of the “In play” odds section which allows you to view a small tab showcasing the event. Although some footage is shown for certain events and in certain sports such as Football, Tennis horse racing and basketball other events such as Racing may require at least a £1 bet in order to watch or at least have an account with funds deposited in it. The below image shows you the football live streaming section (however be aware that this will vary slightly from sport to sport). To reach this section go to the “In play” betting section along the bottom row of the app, then navigate to the event you wish to view. From there simply tap on the event and the screen shown below (for the selected event) will appear.
4) Customer service
The Coral bookmaker customer support live chat is probably the best way for customers to interact with members of the Coral team. Should any issue occur then this is an excellent way to troubleshoot and solve any problems you may have with the app. Coral live chat initially greets you with a bot, but if the bot cannot answer your question you will be transferred to a real person which takes an average of 3-5 minutes in our experience.
5) Build a bet
Build bet allows you to immediately compile a list of different bets and calculate for you any potential winnings or losses depending on the result of the bet. From this you can then immediately place one or many bets simultaneously and know what you will be winning depending on the result of the event.
6) Other apps - Coral vegas, Coral live casino, Poker app
Coral only has one app for both of its main products, Sports betting and Casino. Inside of the app using the “casino” option on the bottom bar of the app you will be taken to the casino section where a variety of games are available, such as Slots, Roulette, Live Casino and Bingo. (Poker is also available but not on mobile, it requires a PC or Laptop to install and then play).
