BetBright mobile app download guide
It could not be any easier to download BetBright app to your Android mobile or tablet. It will work on any version of the Android operating system as long as it is 4.0 and above. So nearly all Samsung, HTC, Google Nexus, Motorola, LG’s, and others will be able to download and use the app.
So how do you do it? Easy…..just go to www.betbright.com and press the join button if you are a new customer. Register for your account, then once you are logged in, click on the menu on the left and then click on Help Centre. In here, search for App, then scroll to the ‘How do I install the BetBright Android app?’ click open the menu, then click on the download button. On the new page, click the download button, and this will start the process to get the BetBright APK. You may need to set your phone to allow 3rd party apps; you can do this by allowing Unknown Sources, which is found in the security options on your phone. Let the APK download, press install, and then you have the app on your phone and ready launch.
Yes, it would be easier if there was a quick link in the menu to go straight to the app download page, but as of yet, there isn’t, we have made this suggestion to the BetBright team and waiting to see if they listen to us.
Placing bets via the app
Now that you have the app, the real fun can start. BetBright’s Android app functions like most betting apps do, but if you have never bet on your phone before, you may think OK, where do I start?? So make sure you are logged in and have funds in your account. Note: you can only bet with a logged-in and funded account – you can browse as much as you like, but until you have a funded account, you can’t place a bet. So with funds, on the homepage, find the sport you want to bet on. You can do this by the sliding menu at the top of the page with the icons (all popular sports are in here) or by the menu on the left (icon with three lines top left of the page). Let’s say Tennis is your sport, click on Tennis and on the new page, you can see a list of matches and also a tab with competitions on there. You need to filter to find the game you want, so click on tournaments, find the comp you want and press it, find the game you want, and then press the game. Now you can see all the available markets including to win the match, set betting, first set winner, and a few other options. If the match is in play, you can see a visualisation at the top of the page and watch the action happen. It is now a simple matter of selecting your outcome. If you think Nadal will win, choose the odds, and your selection will be added to your bet slip. This will launch at the bottom of the page. Here is where to add your stake, or continue to add more bets to the slip. You can add as many as you like, then click open the betslip add what you want to bet and see your return. Press the Fast Bet button, and your bet is on. You can view all your bets in the Account section on the app or website. This is for all settled, current and unsettled bets in here.
A great newcomer to the field
First off, we have to say that we do like BetBright as a company. It isn’t very often a new bookie comes along and introduces some new features that the big boys haven’t already got. We like the easy to use app and website. It is effortless on the eye, and while it does look familiar in terms of design to other betting apps, BetBright has added their own spin on the design, and it does work. It is nice and straightforward to use and will appeal to both newbies and betting professionals.
Add this to the friendly & helpful customer care, the excellent odds, and regular special offers that BetBright brings to the table. Currently, they only operate in the UK with a UK licence, but as the company grows and gets bigger, we would expect them to try and break Europe and expand into a few other countries and territories too.
Based over in Dublin, Ireland, BetBright was only founded a few years ago back in 2013 and has come on leaps and bounds in just a few short years of opening. They started with just a sportsbook but added an online casino to their ranks. Back in November 2016, BetBright won the Best In-House Product award at the 2016 EGR operator awards. They then won another award – Best Football Betting Product at the annual SBC industry awards a month later. Not bad for a new company in what is a very competitive industry.
This bookie has joined a growing trend by sponsoring a football club and becoming their ‘betting partner’ of choice. They are the official sponsors of Nottingham Forest FC, and you can see there logo on the team shirts.
What makes the app stand out?
Design-wise, there isn’t anything not to like about the app. It is simple and easy to use, and really when it comes to betting, that is what you want. The layout is pretty similar to other apps on the market, utilising a sliding menu for sports on the top of the home page and also the main navigation menu accessible on the left of the page. The home page is well laid out, and it’s straightforward to see what’s what. In-Play betting is now a massive draw to any punter, and the Bet Bright application for Android does have this at the heart of the app. There is a vast section dedicated to featured in-play games and matched. This is usually the big football or Tennis match happening right now. You can click easily and view all the in-play games happening now or scroll down to see the two most popular sports to bet on – Horse Racing and, of course, football. You can view all the big race meets and big games listed here; those that aren’t listed can easily be found using the main football or racing menu located on the left. There have been even more recent styling changes, tweaks, and functional improvements to make the app even easier for you to get in and out of your favourite events. It is not just us that appreciate the recent updates. This app gets great reviews and feedback from punters all over the app stores.
Top tips for using the app – If you are a racing fan, use the BetFinder option. It is a fantastic resource to help you find the best bets. Simple and easy to use, and we use it regularly to find some winning picks. Live sport streaming via the app is excellent and works best on WI-FI or a good 3g/4G signal. The quick deposit option by PayPal is a real bonus if you use this online merchant.
There are loads of sports available to bet on with the mobile BetBright app. You will find American football, basketball, boxing, golf, cricket, MMA, motor racing, snooker, and others. OK, you may find other betting apps that offer a more extensive sports choice, but that is very niche betting, and we think BetBright covers all the popular sports well enough.

One of the main draws to using the BetBright mobile app is there unique feature called ACCA CLUB (previously called ACCA+1). It is straightforward to use and understand. Just make five or more selections on your accumulator, and you will get one risk-free leg. Launched back in 2016, it has been a polar feature for the bookie. Just make sure your combined odds are 7/1 or higher to qualify. If the risk-free leg comes in along with the original acca, then the bonus is paid as cash. If the original acca wins, but the risk-free leg loses, don’t worry, you will still get paid out as usual. So far, it is the only acca offer in the industry that applies to all markets and leagues! Not only that, but it also applied to both pre-play and in-play bets. Up until now, the biggest winning odds to date was a 385/1; this was for a fourteen-fold acca that came in just before Christmas. What will you do with it?
Horse racing plays a big part in the BetBright mobile site and Android app. They do support a Best odds guaranteed on all UK and Irish racing as well as daily money-back specials. If, like us, you want to watch the racing after placing a wager, there is live streaming on all UK & Irish racing – available on the app and also on the website too.
We all want to be able to get our bets on as quickly as possible, and luckily, BetBright let us with their Fast Bet feature. Once logged in, you can place your bet in just a few clicks, meaning you never miss getting that bet on again. Not only that, but this feature also allows you to remember your stake amount so that you can get your bets on quicker than ever before, ideal if you always bet the same amount. This bookie also runs a ‘BetFinder’ feature, which helps you find bets to place. Essentially, this is a dedicated area on the app that is jam-packed with stats, data, and a powerful search algorithm that helps pick out some top bets. You can use the BetFinder smart form filters to narrow down the field of all UK & Irish horses to just a select few, by filters you control. This unique feature allows you to harness the power of the most complete horse racing data with just a few simple clicks; it is excellent!
Sports aren’t the only form of entertainment on the app. You can also access the BetBright casino app, games, and live casino via the main Sportsbook. The casino has an excellent choice of games, including slots & jackpots, as well as popular table games, video poker, and also roulette. Games are provided by some of the big-name players in the online gaming world like NetEnt and Microgaming. There is no free play or demo mode available, but some excellent promotions for customers make up for this.
Overall, we think BetBright has done a great job on their app, and we are sure you will feel the same too. Download the app today at www.betbright.com and see what all the fuss is about.

“Jason1001” – Really like this app, easy to use and no issues with crashing (yet) needs improvements on the sports coverage and some of the visuals aren’t the best but still a reliable little app
