You have probably asked is there a Coral betting app? Well the good news is and it is very good! The new mobile app is compatible with all Android devices, including tablets and is really easy to download and even quicker to install. You can be backing your favourite team in no time!
If you are wondering what the heck an APK file is and if you need one to get the app, well an APK file is the file type that Android devices use to download an app. Before Google Play allowed gambling apps, you needed to download an APK from either a bookie direct, or a download site. You can still get the Coral APK direct from the Coral mobile site at www.coral.co.uk

So you get the same odds, same offers, same great range of sports and all the features like cash out, bet builder and streaming. The only thing you don’t get is push notifications.
How does the app stand up against its competitors?
We are really big fans of this bookie. They great reputation in the UK and it is not very often you hear of issues with them. As far as the app goes, it is definitely up there with best. Simple to use with a great design, it will appeal to new players to the betting game as well as those of us who have been having a bet for years. There are not many bookies out there offering as many features as Coral do, nor many who can match the Live Streaming service or range of sports and products available. In the one app you get a Sportsbook, casino, poker room and more!

The screen shots below are there to show you what the app is like during an in-play football game and also the main options from the app home screen.
As a bookie, Coral have really come on leaps and bounds over the last few years and can now boast to be one of the most popular bookies going. It’s easy to see why Coral have done so well, they have some really good odds, a very decent market selection, loads of unique features (available on both the app and website) and a very, very attractive girl in the adverts!
Tips on the app – Make sure you download the latest version of the app to stay up to date with push notifications and improved stability. You need a funded account to view any of the live streaming with Coral so make sure you top up your account. Racing fans, head to the Ante-post area and do your research before placing your bets on the upcoming races.
The mobile app from Coral is very user friendly and simple to use. The app looks visually dazzling and it will appeal to almost any sports fan. One thing that hit’s you straight away is just how good the layout and look of it is. It had an update a few months ago that has bought in a fresh new look and added some more features. They offer the main requirements of any modern bookie app such as bet-in play for live events such as football, tennis and a wide range of other sports, cash out, the option to place multi bet types and a best odds guarantee. On the home page of their mobile site and app you will be able to find all their latest offers and highlights of upcoming events which is handy. We do really love the layout and colour scheme used by Coral, it’s a real powerhouse of an app!
Coral mobile application has just had a bit of a tweak and they updated their Horse Racing section. Donning a a fresh new look, it is now even easier for to use. They have also added enhanced Races to the Horse Racing homepage, so you can find the enhanced offers faster than ever. There is also a new Ante-post area where you will be able to find all of the early prices for the big Flat, Jump or International meetings. And they have (finally added) a new section for UK and Irish greyhounds, where you can view Timeform’s star ratings and details on each race and all the runners. Timeform are one of the big players in horse racing stats and we have been crying out for something like this for years from Coral so we are very glad it is finally here.
Like most bookmakers Coral focuses on football and horse racing however this is not to say they don’t cater to other popular sports. Other markets they offer include American football, ice hockey, baseball, basketball, cricket, golf, motor sports, boxing, athletics, rugby, tennis, cycling, darts and snooker. The Android app from Coral also covers UK & Irish horse racing and greyhounds racing on a large scale. You can live stream selected racing straight you mobile as well. This option is available on PC & laptop as well if you would rather a bigger screen. Another thing I like on the app is it also offers more outlandish markets, such as betting on politics, lotto, TV and entertainment events. One thing is for sure, you will never find yourself struggling to find a decent market to bet on with Coral.
Another bonus from them is that they offer customers a range of different specials each week on large events. Coral will offer new users enhanced odds on events when they sign up but these are not just exclusively for new customers so keep a look out for them. Coral customers can also use the rather good Coral Connect from the app also. This is a great feature to Coral and allows you to draw your winnings from a Coral shop. Say you have a good weekend and win some money on the football, you can walk in to a shop, swipe your Coral Connect card and pick up your cash in store (they have over 1,800 of them).
Placing bets using the app
The speed at which you can place a bet at has become a real necessity on a betting app. The good guys over at Coral know this and make it very easy for you to get your wager on quickly. Betting is only permitted from a registered and signed in account with funds. If you haven’t yet got an account, do so now so you can get your bets on. Now that’s sorted, the fun begins. If you want to bet on football, go to the home page and you can select the football icon at the top of the page, or find it via the menu at the bottom of the app in the A-Z of sports. Here you can see the in-play games, competitions, coupons and other markets. Narrow down your choice to the league or event then find your match. From here it is as simple as click on the displayed odds to add the section to your betslip, which is located in the top right of the screen. You can add your choices as single bets or there is the option for accumulators. Set your stake and then press the green Bet Now button and your bet will be placed. Keep a track of all your bets in the account. The process is the same for any sport from the big list available with Coral.
One thing you must do, is join the Bet & Get club from Coral. It’s a quality way to get a bit back if you regularly bet on the football in the week. Get £5 to spend online and £5 to spend in store. To qualify, log in to your account, make sure you click on the opt in button. Then simply stake a cumulative total of at least £25 on any sports markets (at odds of evens or greater) from Monday to Thursday during the week. Once you have done that, you qualify for £10 in free bets at the weekend.
As well as their great sports betting features Coral has recently added a casino section in their android app. They have always had a mobile casino but kept it separate from the sports betting side. They have over 50 exciting games including all your favourite table games and slots including Thai Flower which is exclusively to Coral. It is well worth checking out if casino games are you type of thing.
Deposits can be made with Coral by using debit and credit card as well as certain E-wallets like Moneybookers, Skrill, Neteller, Click2Pay and WebMoney. You can do all this from in your account as will as withdraw your funds and add them. Need to update your details? It’s easy to do, just log in and click on the my account and edit what you need to. It really is a first rate betting app that I’m sure you will love. Join in the app or at www.coral.co.uk you will love it.
