How to Download Android Betting Apps?

Ever since the Google Apps Store lifted their ban on real money bookmakers apps, installing Betting apps on Android is a doddle. Read more about what benefits and features mobile bookies offer with our Android app reviews.

Once you have made a decision on which of the Android betting apps you wish to download, simply sign up with the bookmaker and then install the app on your mobile device. Important - Register your account first, then download the app.

Additional pages Android users might be interested in are:

  • Casino Apps - Mobile casino free spins & more.
  • Bingo Apps - Bingo bonuses & play for as little as 2p.
  • Slots Apps - Play for free, win huge real money jackpots & more.
  • Poker Apps - Free poker bets & Twister tournaments.

Android Betting Apps on Google Play

Having the ability to install betting apps for Android on Google Play is an absolute godsend. Before the rules were changed, in order to bet on your mobile, users had to change settings, download 3rd party APK files and all sorts of nonsense. So you can understand why the news that the App Store has native bookie apps was massive for punters with Android phones.

Betting Apps with Android Pay

At the moment not a lot of bookie betting apps accept Android Pay as one of their prefered payment methods. Although, we are sure that it won't be long before it becomes one of the recognised methods to deposit & withdraw funds. We will, of course, update the relevant pages once bookies introduce Android Pay as an option.
