Like all of Sky's apps, Sky Bet is one of the best going. Football betting fans, look no further for an app to give you the edge on your betting.
Sky are a name strongly associated with sports and entertainment and that also transitions in to the Sky Bet app. It is an incredible betting app available for Android and will provide hours of entertainment for the punter.
It seems like Sky have been around for an eternity and have always had a heavy involvement with sports. When they bought a small company in 2002 and re branded it, Sky probably didn’t know just how big Sky Bet was going to get. They are massive and have a great following, super offers and do a lot in terms of sponsorship too.
You can search and look as hard as you like but you won’t find an official Sky Bet app in any the Google Play Store. Not because Sky Bet don’t want one, it is down to Google’s restrictions to ban any real money gambling apps. You can still join Sky Bet and download the app easily & quickly, just use our simple to follow instructions found above. It isn’t just Sky Bet, this applies to any bookie or gambling outfit.
Downloading the official Sky Bet app for Android is super easy if you follow our guide. The first time you log in to the app you will need to allow it to access your location to prove you are in a country where they operate and one where gambling is legal (yes…..there are some countries where you can’t gamble, well legally anyway!) It is the best way to use Sky Bet and the app is essential for any punter who regularly has a wager on football.
Sky Bet’s Android version of their app is compatible on all Android mobile or tablets. This includes all the latest variants from manufactures like Samsung, Motorola, HTC, LG, Nexus and any others running Android software.
Why you should use the Sky Bet app for Android?
If you bet on football regularly, you need this app in your life. Sky Bet offer have of the best offers going for football punters which we will talk you through later on in the review. This isn’t to say other sports don’t get the same attention, they are really good when it comes to darts, horse racing and golf to name a few too. Once you have an activated account, you can take advantage of all of these offers. Sky Bet are one of the companies who support a pin log in which we much prefer over a lengthy password, it saves a lot of time. When logged in, you can add funds using several methods, including a quick PayPal add option which we like. Your account will show you a full bet history, including open and settled bets and gives you options to add a Promo code if you have one. Sky Bet are very good in this respect and regularly reward punters with free bets, in fact they hand over more than £5 million free each and every month!
This new and improved version of the Android app from Sky Bet is the best one yet. A few years ago there were lots of complaints about the app not working correctly. We have been using it for a long long time and not encountered any problems. It used to be the case that Sky Bet had a better iOS app and din’t spend anytime developing the Android version, this is not the case now and the two apps are identical, apart from the ability to log in using Touch ID on Apple. We really do hope this is bought in soon to this Android version. Another feature we would like to see is notifications which are annoyingly available on iOS……….we will patiently wait as everything else is spot on.

Sky Bet have produced one of the most advanced betting apps going for Android. As we mentioned, football betting takes top precedent on the app. Market choice is huge and by far one of the best of any betting app available. They cover nearly all leagues from all over the world. Find your game and have a look at the markets and options available, you will see what we mean. In Play betting is spot on and the visualisations are amazing (as you would expect from an entertainments company). You can see Pitch View, Stats (fed direct from Sky Sports) and the score center to check action happening elsewhere. You can place single and accumulator bets on the app and Sky Bet do like an acca. You can find a large choice available from BTTS, under/overs, Full time results and lots more.
Unlike most bookie apps, Sky Bet list a lot of sports on the home page. We think they do this to show you the choice but also to show how many boosted prices on various sports there are. You can filter choices by clicking on the main menu located in the top left. Here you can get a full A-Z of sports, see top sports (Football, racing & virtual) and also get quick access to your bets and current available promotions like the Sky Bet Club and offers on other Sky products. Bet and watch is Sky Bets live streaming service, for the moment is is only available on Horse racing and has been the case for a few years. The app is visually very well set out and we have no complaints about how it is laid out or operates.
They have recently added a Roulette option to the main menu so that you can jump straight in to playing one of the best casino games going without having to leave the app. One thing you will notice is the other Sky apps available right at the top of the page. Sky have brilliant apps across casino, Vegas, Live Casino, Sky Poker, Bingo, Super 6 & Fantasy football. You only need one log in to use any of these apps. Each product has it’s own app so if you do fancy a move away from betting, you will need to download each one separately. Use your same one login for all products which you can get at www.skybet.com Each product also has it’s own welcome bonus so they are worth joining up to.
To sum up this is a very good Android app from Sky Bet that we highly recommend. It is fast and easy to use and is now much improved from how it used to be.
