Android and Horse Racing Betting Apps

Betting apps have become an increasingly popular way to bet in recent years, with the ease of using them and the ability to punt on the go making them superior to bookmaker desktop sites in many ways. And with horse racing such a popular sport to bet on, it’s no surprise that many bookmakers focus strongly on this area when developing their apps. Typically these apps are available for both iOS and Android devices, but for the purpose of this article, let’s take a look at the best Android betting apps for horse racing.


Bet365 is one of the biggest betting companies in the world, and since developing an Australian branch they’ve made plenty of noise down under. Aside from their huge range of markets and great odds, one of the things that makes them so popular is their high quality betting app. Available for Android devices, this can be easily downloaded from wherever you get your apps, and allows you to access Bet365’s extensive range of racing markets and high quality odds from your Android device. This is among the easiest betting apps out there to use, and though it can occasionally malfunction, it generally runs very quickly and responsively. As far as horse racing betting apps go, this is well and truly in the conversation for the best.


Palmerbet Australia is not typically recognised as one of the biggest betting sites in Australia, but it does many things as well as most of the bigger bookmakers. One of those things is their mobile app. Palmerbet’s website is good but does have the tendency to lag at times, and this is typically something which translates to mobile apps; bookmakers that don’t have a great website don’t usually have a great app, while those with a terrific site usually do. Fortunately, in the case of Palmerbet, there appears to have been a specific focus in creating a user-friendly mobile app. If you download this betting app on your Android device, you’ll no doubt find it to be responsive and easy to navigate through, with the tendency for lag that is present on the website a welcome absentee from the app.


PlayUp might not have been around for as long as some of its major competitors, having only been launched back in 2017, but they’ve become a popular choice for many punters in that time – in fact, according to, they are right at the top of the list. Among their most notable features is their very easy to use website, and this time around, that does translate to the app. The PlayUp Android app is super easy to use, allowing you to access PlayUp’s quality customer support platform, deposit and withdraw, and of course, scan their range of racing markets and place bets. For pure speed and responsiveness, this app could lay claim to being the best going around, so if you’re after an Android app with as much functionality as you could hope for, this one is worth taking a look at.


Like Bet365, Unibet is another major global betting company that made its way to Australia after having already established itself internationally. Unibet Australia was launched in 2012, and since then they’ve become popular down under largely due to their almost unmatched range of markets and almost unbeatable odds. Their website is a unique which isn’t always the most functional, but their app is a fair bit better and generally tends to be quite responsive. What’s more, when downloading this to your Android device you obviously get access to the rest of Unibet’s great features, most notably their excellent odds as well as live streaming, which includes a number of events – horse racing among them. This means you can login, place your bets and watch the events all from your Android device.


BoomBet is another experienced Australian bookmaker, though you might not recognise the name given that they were called Sportsbetting until just a couple of years ago. Still, they’ve been around since the ‘90s, so they’ve got plenty of experience. They’ve also got a great Android app. You can download this app from wherever it is that you get your apps, and once you do you’ll have access to all that BoomBet has to offer. It’s a really fast, very responsive app, and the racing markets are easily accessible from the home page, with upcoming events shown on the home page and a link to other racing markets available at the bottom of your screen. 


With betting apps becoming the preference for many punters over desktop sites, it’s no surprise that most betting agencies want to create one which is easy to use; otherwise, the punters will simply go elsewhere. With Android devices so popular among the general public these days, this is one of the major types of devices that betting apps are developed for, with most of them being available for iOS and Android. If you’ve got an Android device and want to download a betting app there are plenty of options available to you, but hopefully we’ve helped you to narrow things down a little by listing some of the best of them above.
