Top 10 betting apps to use in football grounds

Top 10 betting apps to use in football grounds

One way in which the experience of attending football grounds has changed in recent years is how we bet on games. Gone are the days of filling out a betting slip, before standing in the queue at a dingy hut. Nowadays, you can use your mobile to place bets from the comfort of your seat.

But with so many online betting sites out there, how can you decide which one to use? When placing online bets inside football grounds, time is usually of the essence. That means you need fast connections and user-friendly interfaces that make placing bets a straightforward, fast process.

With all that in mind, here are our picks for the top 10 betting apps to use inside football grounds:


One of the oldest bookmakers in the UK, Betfred has seamlessly adapted to modern betting trends. The Betfred app is slick, easy to navigate and the pages load instantly. Better yet, Betfred have regular football promotions that can add a lot of value to your bets. Their 'Double Delight Hat Trick Heaven' offer doubles your payout if your first goalscorer bet follows up by scoring a second goal. If they score a hat trick, you will receive three times the amount of your original payout. There are also regular odds boosts, bet builder promotions and other great ways of increasing your potential winnings.

William Hill

The name William Hill is synonymous with sports betting. Their football odds are often among the best around, especially when it comes to major fixtures. Another big advantage of joining William Hill is that their current welcome bonus for new players gives you £30 in free bets when you sign up and place a £10 bet on any sports market. When you throw in a host of regular promotions and a world class app, it is clear to see why William Hill is so popular with football fans.

Paddy Power

If you've ever seen one of their TV or social media adverts (and let's face it, who hasn't?) you'll know that Paddy Power like to do things differently to most other betting sites. That originality extends to their football betting markets and promotions, which often feature quirky options. Their app isn't quite as impressive as some on this list, but if you are looking for a fun online betting experience, Paddy ticks the box.


The depth of the football markets at Ladbrokes is second to none. There are 'Special' bets and bet builders attached to all major games, whilst the number of markets for lower league games is as good as you will find. Another fun feature is the weekly '1-2-Free' prediction game. Simply predict the result of three games, and you can win £50 in free bets.


One of the most professional looking betting apps around, Bet365 is designed to give you a seamless, hassle-free football betting experience. You won't find as many promos as at other sites, but you will find solid prices and a superb user experience. The main football promotion they run is the '2 up' early payout. If you bet on a match winner, Bet365 will pay out as soon as your team goes two goals ahead.


US betting behemoth BetMGM has successfully transitioned into the UK market this year. Its betting app is full of great features, including a free daily prize wheel, odds boost and a weekly bet club. The app is as slick as you would expect from one of the biggest names in the industry.


Of course, you may want to place bets on sports other than football when you are inside a ground. That is why the Unibet betting app finds a place on our list. Their football betting options are solid enough, but Unibet really excels when it comes to promotions for horse racing and other major sports. There are daily odds boosts, free bet offers and other great ways of adding extra value to your bets.


Simply put, Coral is one of the very best all round betting apps. The range of markets is fantastic, the odds are usually competitive and there is always a bonus to take advantage of. Regardless of your other betting choices, Coral is an app that you should always have on your phone.


Another bookmaker that has successfully transitioned from physical shops to online betting, BetVictor have one of the slickest apps on the market. Loading times are superb, navigation is intuitive and placing bets could not be easier. They also have one of the best welcome offers around - place a £10 bet and you will receive £40 in free bets.


Whilst Betfair is a solid football betting app in its own right, the brand really comes into its own when you try out the Betfair Exchange. This enables you to try a lay bet (in other words, bet against a selection) as well as the more usual place bets. This can seem like a slightly odd concept to many people, but thanks to the superb betting platform on the Betfair app, you will pick it up in no time at all. There is also an excellent new player bonus and a host of streaming options.
