888Sport price boosts

The bet365 app update has caused a lot of controversy in recent days and some people are taking the drastic steps to moving away from bet365 all together, but what are the best alternative apps to bet365?

Depending on what you like to see from betting will decide which app is the best alternative. Whether the bet365 app is down, not working or not loading, we might have some good alternatives to help you.


Paddy Power App

The Paddy Power app is easy to use, quick and simple to understand. But even better than this, you can still use the 2 goals ahead offer which you might of liked the bet365 app for.

This means, if you bet on a team and they go two goals clear, you get paid out as a winner even if the team do not win that match. This is the same as the bet365 2 goals ahead promotion and also works on the Paddy Power app for singles and accumulators.

Paddy Power Sign-up Offer

When you open a new Paddy Power account, you will also get a risk free £20 bet meaning if your first bet (up to £20) loses, you get refunded in CASH!



William Hill App

Another good option would be the William Hill app. Like the old bet365 app, William Hill are a strong all round bookmaker who also have good offers for their existing customers. For example, if you bet on an accumulator with William Hill you can choose to either get boosted odds or acca insurance.

If you choose the boosted odds option, this will work as an alternative to the bet365 app’s Soccer Bonus, giving you extra winnings if your accumulator is a winner.

If you choose Acca Insurance, you will get losing accumulators refunded if one team lets you down.

The app is very popular with a 4.2 score rating on the Play Store and 4.6 racing on the App Store.

William Hill Sign-up Offer

Open a new William Hill account and bet £10, win or lose you will get two free £15 bets credited to your new account on the William Hill app.



Betfred App

One betting app that you might not consider as an alternative to the bet365 app is Betfred. However, these are our top choice for horse racing betting. Betfred offer all the usual promotions such as best odds guaranteed and live streaming, but you also get a bonus if you only get one winner on your lucky 15/31/63 bets. For example, if only one of your selections on a lucky 15 is a winner, you get treble the odds for that winner.

Betfred also have some great coupons for football betting and this makes the app very easy to use. Things such as Goals Galore bonus are very popular on the app and their layout gives you quick routes to today’s footy coupons.

Betfred Sign-up Offer

Open a new Betfred account on the app and bet £10. If that bet loses you get a £10 refund, plus you get a £30 free bet, win or lose.




The SBK app is different to the other options in that is has a more ‘communal’ feel to it. You can follow tipsters or become a tipster yourself on SBK. One of the big draws of this app is the odds on offer. Because SBK are powered by Smarkets, you will notice the odds are always very competitive, even when compared to the bet365 app when it’s working!

There are only a couple of good offers once you have an account on the SBK app, but their sign-up bonus is the top rated offer around at the moment because you can try the app for free using a risk free offer.

SBK Sign-up Offer

Download the app and register, place £20 worth of bets and if you lose you get refunded in cash.



Bet365 App Not Loading

One of the problems a lot of people have had with the updated bet365 app is that is simply doesn’t load. If you are looking to quickly place a bet this is not ideal and it is not something that would have happened with the old version of the app. There have been quite a lot of negative reviews of the new bet365 app not loading of late.

“Gone from best to worst with the new app, extremely slow and hard to navigate compared to previous version”


Bet365 App Not Working

If not loading is one thing, not working at all is another. There have been numerous problems with the bet365 app and although I’m sure they will get it sorted eventually, it is simply not good enough for a brand this big to have an app that does not work.

A lot of the recent reviews of the bet365 app simply state it does not work. People are struggling to place bets, the winnings take a long time to go into the account and some parts of the app are not useable. This is one of the main reasons a lot of people are looking for the best altervatives to the bet365 app and for us, it would either be the Paddy Power app or the William Hill app.

Bet365 App is Down

If you are trying to get a bet on and the bet365 app is down, you have no choice but to look for an alternative app. Our best options can be found above and a lot depends on if you are trying to bet on horse racing, football or another sport.

If it is horse racing you are trying to bet on but can’t because the bet365 app is down, then the Betfred app is well worth a go. They have great existing customer offers including daily price boosts and extra places for each-way bets. This works in a similar way to each-wat extra on the bet365 app.

Which app is most similar to bet365?

Paddy Power would be our app of choice if you were looking to move away from bet365. The Paddy Power app has lots of great features and existing customer offers, so even after you have claimed your risk-free £20 bet offer, you can still bet on things like price boosts, money back specials and use the Paddy Power Rewards Club.

Paddy Power also have the 2-up offer just like the bet365 app and that is another reason it is a good alternative. If your team goes 2 goals ahead on your bet, that leg will be ticked off as a winner just like on bet365.

If you like to bet on horse racing then Paddy Power have all the same features as bet365 including live streaming of every race and best odds guaranteed. You will not find the ITV Racing 4/1 offer at Paddy Power which is a downside to using this as an alternative to the bet365 app. However, they do have a free to play Fantasy Racing game and daily enhanced odds singles and accumulators for the horsr racing.
