Key Features

New customers with BetBull can claim a generous welcome bonus for up to £50 in the form of free bets. The specific Terms & Conditions are described below. The sign up offer is complemented by a changing package of bonuses that reward the loyalty of existing customers. At the time of writing the app featured a Spin The Wheel promotion in which customers can win an odds boost, insurance bonus or no-risk free bet.

The BetBull app also offers a VIP Program. There are 10 levels that have a percentage boost from 0 to 10%. Any boost is linked to an accumulator or system bet with three selections or more with combined odds of 2/1 or bigger. Customers graduate through the levels based on turnover which means the bigger bettors benefit from higher percentage boosts. Customers can review their level when they have signed in to an active account.

BetBull offers pre-match, live and ante post odds for over 15 sports and Esports. The quantity is relatively low but the menu lists the most bet on sports like football and tennis but not horse racing. The live betting platform offers live games in the most popular betting sports. Customers can cash out bets before expiry but a bet builder facility has still to be introduced on the app. Another absent feature is Politics betting but this is a niche category that could be added in future.

The option to Accept Higher Odds as an alternative to the current odds is akin to Best Odds Guaranteed on horse racing that other UK sportsbooks offer. If the odds change after the bet has been placed, the best odds apply. This promise applies for selected sports and leagues and is of value when there are fluctuations in the betting in pre-match markets.

BetBull Welcome Bonus

The BetBull mobile app attracts new customers with a welcome bonus with a value of up to £50 that comes in the form of free bets. This amount is above average for UK-facing operators, some of whom promote a bonus for as little as £10. The BetBull welcome offer is a matched bet bonus because the value of the bonus equates to the qualifying bet. The BetBull welcome bonus is subject to the following specific Terms & Conditions:

  • New customers located in the UK aged 18 and older who register an active account.
  • Minimum deposit of £20.
  • Four free bets with a total value up to £50.
  • Qualifying bet for each free bet at 1/1 or bigger.
  • Free bets can be used for system bets or accumulators with three selections or more.
  • Each leg must be included at odds of 1/1 or bigger.
  • Any winnings from a free bet do not include the stake.
  • Free bets expire after 7 days.
  • The offer is subject to BetBull’s general Terms & Conditions.

The welcome bonus is a genuine 100% match bet bonus and the value of any free bets is linked to the qualifying bet. The offer can be lucrative and is easy to claim. There are no wagering requirements and any funds from the free bets can be withdrawn after the 7 days.

If a new customer deposits the minimum of £20 the bonus is for that amount as four £5 free bets. The BetBull welcome bonus provides a good incentive for potential new customers to download the app, make the first deposit and place the qualifying bet.

Betting Markets

BetBull offers a range of markets for the following sports but there are missing sports- Football, Tennis, Basketball, Darts and Snooker.

As a mobile app that is promoted by former footballers from the top league in England, BetBull offers a comprehensive football service. Indeed the majority of bets are placed on football fixtures and the English Premier League (EPL) is the most bet on competition.

Other popular football leagues include the major domestic leagues in Europe (Spain, Germany, Italy and France) and the Champions League. Betting is huge with BetBull for the World Cup and finals of the European Championships.

BetBull displays the 1X2 (Home Win, Draw, Away Win) market for each fixture with a link to additional markets. These related options appear under the headings of main, handicaps, totals, corners, bookings and player specials. More speculative markets include the correct score and first, last and anytime scorer. Scorecast and Wincast betting are also popular.

Tennis generates the highest turnover after football and more bets are placed on live games than in pre-match markets. BetBull offers odds for the ATP and WTA tours, Challenger events and International Tennis Federation (ITF) tournaments across singles and doubles events.

The most bet on markets are the match winner, set handicaps and game totals. The app also features short term markets like the winner of a specific point or game. The live betting odds change after each point but the most significant event is a break of serve which sees betting suspended.

Bettors can place wagers on the four main North America leagues: NFL, MLB, NHL and MLB. The site features markets for global sports such as golf, boxing and motor racing. However, there is no Politics or TV and Entertainment betting but this could change in future. Esports is a growing betting category and BetBull offers odds on the main franchised leagues and games.

App & Site Experience

BetBull offers a dedicated mobile service so a website does not exist. Mobile users can download the app to Android and iOS devices that support the latest operating systems. The download process from the appropriate stores is quick and seamless. Obviously there is no website browser version of the app as an internet service has not been launched to sit alongside the app.

The welcome bonus and sport and event specific promotions for current player are mobile only offers. Customers create an account after downloading the app as they would do on a website. The registration process involves specifying a Username and Password, entering an optional bonus code or promo code and populating a number of required fields.

A live betting interface works well with live games displayed by sport and on a calendar. There is no live streaming but live bettors can view an animation of the progress of play and refer to live match data. BetBull’s cash out facility allows customers to close existing bets to take a known profit or limit any potential loss. Cash out values depend on the original bet and latest odds.

The menu structure and links make for easy navigation so a specific league or market can be reached with the minimum of taps. This app is designed to provide views on the small screen that show the most important information. BetBull is a good destination for mobile sports betting.

Payment Options

Betbull accepts a variety of different payment options including Debit card, Neteller, Skrill and Paysafecard. The minimum deposit is £5 and the minimum withdrawal is £20.

There is no reference to a maximum deposit in the app’s Terms & Conditions. The maximum withdrawal through the banking system is £25,000 and customers must contact BetBull if they wish to transfer more than this amount in one transaction.

Immediate deposits means there is very little delay in opening an account, making a deposit and placing qualifying bets for the welcome bonus. However, Neteller and Skrill deposits are not valid for the welcome offer. Operators licensed by the UK Gambling Commission cannot accept credit card payments to prevent betting on credit.

Customer Support

Active account holders can contact BetBull by email, telephone, postal address and Live Chat. It is a 24/7 service and there is no evidence of poor response times so we can assume staff deal with issues in a timely manner. Payouts are prompt so there are few complaints about withdrawing money.

The FAQs section provides answers to some of the common questions related to the main functions of the app. This section is displayed by categories which include account management, sports betting and banking methods and providers.

BetBull promotes responsible gambling which is important for any operation holding a UKGC licence. There are measures available to control gambling, including self-exclusion and limits. The app has banner links to UK bodies that provide guidance and support for problem gamblers.

Final Verdict

BetBull has provided a positive social mobile sports betting experience since 2015. Members are encouraged to interact with tips and opinions. The number of sports categories is limited but the list includes the most popular for betting. A generous welcome bonus is complimented by a range of loyalty offers linked to sports and events. The app can be downloaded to popular devices seamlessly and once registered mobile players can enjoy a good sports betting service.
