I am not a football fanatic like most of my friends, so in order to make watching that game more enjoyable, I like to put a few cheeky bets on. However, I suck at betting so need to minimise my loss as much as possible. Using sign up bonuses are great, and the following 5 apps are all great and offer decent bonuses.

Sky Bet

If you want to bet on your mobile, Sky Bet could be the best option. It without a doubt has the best reviews of all the apps in this category. With over 5K reviews and 3.7k of them being 5-star it is almost suspiciously better rated than all the other, though maybe this just indicates the quality of the other apps.

On the downside, their sign, up bonus is not as good as some, which currently stands at £20 with a £5 stake

K8 Sports

It is not as well-known as the likes of Bet365, but K8 Sports is one of the best betting sites on mobile according to users.

If you’re looking for a sleek new betting site, then K8 Sports is for you. With quick, secure mobile betting on thousands of sports events and a high-quality gaming section, you will be impressed with what K8 Sports has to offer.

They offer one of the largest matched bonus deposit of £50 with no minimum deposit

William Hill

William Hill is one of the most recognised betting brands in the UK, possibly one of the most recognised brands in general in the UK. They are big horse race sponsors and offer a broad range of services within their app. Their app is one of the better reviewed on Google Play and you can find more information about William Hill in Ireland 

You can get a £30 bet following a £10 bet which is credited as 3 x £10


The world’s biggest online bookmaker has, understandably, one of the most popular apps out there. The app offers an extensive range of pre-match and In-Play markets together with top sporting action streamed live to your mobile or tablet device. The app delivers a mobile betting experience that is second to none and thus, in our minds, it is, without doubt, the best betting app on the market.

The downsides are that their Android App is not very well reviewed.


Another well-reviewed app on the play store. Betfair has been in the game a long time. They claim to offer the best betting odds, across almost all sports, as well as politics, reality TV, soap operas, the existence of alien life, and pretty much anything you might want to bet on.

Their sign-up bonus is a little confusing, it looks good with the promise of £100, but you actually need to play 5 x £10 bets to receive £20, and you can do this 5 times. It is worth it if you have exhausted all your other sign up bonuses on other sites.
