Our verdict on the Android app from Sky Bet: An uber cool football betting app
Sky Bet have a great name in the gambling arena, especially when it comes to football. They were one of the very first bookmakers to have a mobile app and they just make it better and better with each update they do. I know me and all of my betting buddies all use Sky Bet for the reliability, speed and best prices. It is that good, that the Sky Bet mobile app is the number 1 rated app in the app stores for betting app downloads in the UK.
Main features on the app
- Quick pin log in
- Safe & secure
- Fast & reliable
- Sky Bet Tracker
- Price boost markets
- Account history
- Fast bet on broadcast games
To give you a visual idea of what you can expect on the app, you can find some screen shots just below taken on a Galaxy S7 edge mobile. These show you the main homepage for the app and a live in play football match with one of the visual viewing options.
Sky Bet are a well renowned company that have been around for a long time. As you would expect from a large company like Sky, they have a great betting app. Design wise, it looks very similar to Sky’s other apps such as news and sport (they are free to download as well and definitely worth using for the latest sports news). To find your way around the app, Sky Bet uses a simple navigation system made up of a few menus. There is a main menu located in the left of the app. This is where to head to get the full sports list, Bet & watch information (live streaming), customer support and quick access to ‘My Bets’ – This unique feature is where you can check the position of all your bets in one click. No more clicking on each bet. Check match stats and if you feel you have a better chance of wining money now, cash out to end your bet early for lower odds. Head back to the home screen and you can see all the featured sports that Sky Bet do their price boost on, just look for the symbol next to the event to see the price increase. Just like us, Sky Bet love a good accumulator and you can jump straight on them on the home screen. They list all the big games across loads of sports making it easy for you to get you acca on. There are loads to choose from including all popular full time results, BTTS, under and over markets and loads more.
The app really does looks great and is extremely easy to get your head around. After two or three minutes playing around with it you should be all set up and ready to place your bets. It uses Sky’s significant blue and red branding. The app looks very slick and modern and has a really nice feel and design to it. It really is a great little app which loads first time has everything that you need to bet. I have been using Sky Bet on my Galaxy for a long time now and hardly a day goes by that I don’t use it which says a lot about how good it is! It is not just us that rate the app, look at independent reviews in the various app stores and they pretty much agree with all we say, it is one of the top apps on the market.
Tips & Tricks on the Sky Bet mobile app – Make sure you have notifications enabled to be alerted to all the price boosts the bookie offers. Tap the gift icon in the menu bar and join the Sky bet club for free offers. If a game is available to view on TV, a small icon with the channels logo/name will show at the top of the game.
The latest unique feature to launch on the app is called Group Bets. Now this new little nifty option lets you and a group of friends make selections in to a group accumulator. Once the Group Bet has been created, you can then move the Group Bet in to your own Sky Bet account and then place your stake. Not everyone has to bet the same amount and you don’t all have to bet on it. You can join up to 5 Group Bet groups and no, the winnings are not split between the group, so don’t worry if your big acca comes in, you won’t be splitting the winnings with your tight mate who didn’t bet on it. This feature wont appeal to every punter but we quite like it for something a bit different.
As you would expect from Sky Bet, their Android app supports a big range of sports including football, rugby, golf, tennis, cycling, F1, darts and loads more. Sky excels in football betting and this is the market they cater towards the most. The app has a great selection of markets and has a vast variety of different bets in each market. It allows you to bet on all the main football leagues as well as a few smaller ones. Just because they are great in football it does not mean they are lacking everywhere else. Sky has a great selection of other sports to bet on and it is still a decent app for any sport. Sky offers their customers weekly promotions such as enhanced odds on a select number of teams. The app also supports Sky Bets excellent ‘Cash Out’ boost feature which gives you the chance to win cash bonuses on top of your Cash Out value, every time you cash out. Cash Out Boost is available at any time, providing they you have an open bet that is eligible for Cash Out. It can be used on Football, horse racing and tennis events at the minute.
