Is there a BetJOE app available for Android?
BetJOE customers who have an Android device should be aware that there is no official app available to download at the time of writing. You will not find BetJOE in the Google Play store nor is there an .apk download you can install. What BetJOE do offer, however, is a mobile version of their site which is tailored for use on smaller screens.
Is there a BetJOE App available for iOS?
Unfortunately for Apple users, you will also not find any kind of BetJOE iOS app at this moment in time. Do not expect to see one any time soon either as a dedicated application is not something they are currently developing. Creating a native iOS app can be a lengthy and expensive process and, for now, at least, the costs outweigh the benefits.
Review of Mobile Site Version
Although the BetJOE mobile site sticks with the exact same colour scheme as the desktop version, there are some noticeable changes at first glance. First is the choice of menu options across the top of the page. BetJOE mobile-only includes sports, casino and live casino, with in-play, placed lower down, beside the BetJOE logo. Direct links to e-Sports and Virtual Sports, which are present when using a PC, are not visible anywhere. The former can still be accessed via the sports page but virtual sports are not an option when playing on mobile.
On the mobile site there is a link at the very bottom of the page for the ‘desktop version’ but you will not want to click this. This version of the site works extremely poorly on mobiles, much worse than when selecting ‘open desktop site’ in your browser. Up the screen a little, above the company info, you will find links for the help desk and promotions. The former will direct you to the FAQ page but the promotion button does not work and will not take you anywhere.
Sports Betting on Mobile
Like when accessing BetJOE on a desktop, the range of sports are ordered in a rather random fashion so finding your desired selection isn’t as quick as it perhaps should be. By default, fixtures taking place within the next 24 hours will be displayed but you can alter this by selecting ‘all’ next to the right of the heading. Generally speaking, switching between sports is quick but you may experience slow loading times with soccer games due to it usually having a much larger pool of fixtures.
When clicking on an individual fixture, there are filters for the various types of bets, for example, half-time, which is helpful; but what is less helpful is having all the odds displayed at once. While not a problem for many sports, in others, such as football, it ends up creating a lot of avoidable scrolling. Having all options open by default is something you will also see across some individual sports menus, for example, basketball, although at least with these the subcategories are collapsible.
Placing bets is as simple as clicking the odds on any displayed market. All selections will be added to your betslip, accessible via the top right-hand corner of the screen, without interruption. Whenever you are happy with your choices, opt what kind of bet you want, straight, parlay or teaser and then enter your stake. Once you have typed in the amount, you will need to tap the top half of your screen as selecting the enter button will not see the keyboard disappear.
Mobile Site Features
Anyone familiar with the BetJOE website may have seen the very occasional live stream across some areas, such as esports. The very few video streams BetJOE offers are not available on their mobile site however. The reason behind this appears to be a matter of design with BetJOE unable to transfer and support the desktop features on a more compact site.
It is possible to bet on live matches on mobile devices at BetJOE but only on a rather limited number of games. It is not that some games do not feature on the mobile site, but rather it is because BetJOE has a fairly weak in-play offering. The limited selection does at least make navigation easy on mobile devices as specific fixtures and their markets can be selected in next to no time. Be aware however that when accessing the site on mobile, in-play fixtures do not come with any match statistics.
For all you punters out there who enjoy a greater feeling of control over your bets, the cash out option provides you with exactly that. Unfortunately, the ability to settle your bets at a time of your choosing is not offered at BetJOE. The lack of cash out function means all bets placed here are final so you will either win the full amount or nothing at all.
BetJOE casino mobile
When first landing at the BetJOE mobile casino you will be greeted by a long list of slots featuring one large icon per row. With no search facility available on the site, finding a specific type of slot can take you a while. Filtering by a specific software developer, for example Microgaming, can help speed up the process, but the layout still leaves plenty to be desired.
As none of the other casino games features such as extensive list, navigation is simpler elsewhere. While not all BetJOE games are mobile compatible, many are; and this provides a very solid degree of choice among popular games such as video poker, poker and roulette. When clicking on a particular game, there will be an option for ‘play now’ or ‘demo mode’. This will be difficult to see as it will only feature in thin black text, but squint closely enough and you should spot it.
Mobile Live Casino
The BetJOE live casino, powered by Ezugi, is compatible across mobile devices. Ezugi boasts plenty of experience in the industry and have been offering their range of live casino games on smartphones and tablets for several years. Fully customised to run smoothly on smaller screens, players will have an enjoyable experience tuning into the high-quality streams. While overall we are pleased with the offering, some work could be done improving the aesthetics of the interface. Additionally, it would be useful to have a chat feature built into the mobile lobbies.
Pros & Cons of the BetJOE mobile website version
- Good range of casino games across most areas of the site.
- Live casino fully compatible with mobiles.
- Most pages are quick to load.
- No live streaming.
- No cash out facility on bets.
- In-play betting very basic.
- No search function available.
Is There a BetJOE Mobile Bonus?
BetJOE only offers two promotions, neither of which are exclusively for mobile devices. Due to the faulty promotion link on the mobile site we encountered at the time of visiting the site, there is a chance you may not be able to view the terms and conditions but you can still redeem the offers. In both cases, the promotions require you to enter a promo code when placing your first deposit, in a box, you will see when depositing via mobile. You can then play through the wagering requirement by placing bets on either desktop or mobile, or a combination of the two.
System Requirements and Compatibility
The BetJOE mobile site is designed to work across operating systems and different browsers. The only thing which is recommended is that users use the most updated version of their browser to ensure the most optimal performance. With no specific smartphone or tablet requirements, customers can visit BetJOE on virtually all devices, new or old. No matter if you have Apple, Huawei, Sony, Xiaomi, Samsung, LG, ZTE, Lenovo or something else, you should enjoy full site access here.

Questions & Answers
Can I change the odds from Fractional to Decimal?
Yes, this can be done very easily. Tap the menu button near the top left-hand corner of the screen and towards the bottom of the page you will see the four available odds formats: American, decimal, fractional and Hong Kong. Choose your desired selection and all odds will change automatically.
Is there a BetJOE .apk file for Android I can download?
Rather than offering an app through the Google Play store, some online bookmakers release an official .apk file for users to download. This is not something BetJOE have decided to provide as yet however and we do not expect to see one any time in the near future.
Why can’t I find a BetJOE app for iOS in the App Store?
At the time of writing, BetJOE has not designed any kind of iOS app so they have nothing to offer in the App Store. To feature in the store, an app must meet quite strict requirements and this is something which has proven too tall an obstacle for many (less mainstream) betting sites to even attempt to overcome.
How do I use the BetJOE mobile site?
All you need to do is search for BetJOE using your usual search engine and click a link to the official site. The mobile version of the site will load automatically and you can access your account via the normal BetJOE login page. If you are yet to sign up, mobile registration is intuitive, quick and easy so should cause you few issues.
Can I follow BetJOE on a social media app?
Although you will spot several social media links at the bottom of the mobile site, all of them were inactive when we clicked on them. BetJOE only briefly maintained a social media presence, something they ceased in 2018.
Which languages can I view the BetJOE mobile site in?
Using the main menu, users can select from 18 different languages including German, French, Italian, Spanish, Turkish, Japanese, Mandarin and Vietnamese.
Can I save my login information for further use?
This is not a feature BetJOE offers themselves but many mobile browsers will let you save your username and passwords for quicker access during future visits.
How can I view the bets I’ve placed?
Select the main menu button and then tap ‘activity’. Using this page you can search for all uncleared and cleared bets within the specified time frame.
How can I view the bets I’ve placed?
When on the BetJoe mobile homepage, a blue button featuring an envelope will appear at the bottom of the screen. Clicking this will send you to the live chat system but it is a system that now appears to be permanently offline. Users can still submit queries through the portal but they will receive a non-instant response via email instead.
About the Company
BetJOE do not go into great detail explaining their origins but we do know that the brand emerged in 2017 after several experienced figures in the industry came together. Since then they have been offering a range of competitive sports bets with a particular focus on esports plus a diverse collection of casino games. The brand is managed by the Galaxy Group Ltd who are licensed and regulated by the Government of Curacao (license #365/JAZ).

App Rating and Conclusion
Although a dedicated Android and iOS app is always a most welcome feature, neither are absolutely necessary to provide to a high-quality gaming experience on mobile devices. Many sites can still offer a top-notch mobile experience simply by altering their site; alas, this is not something in which BetJOE have been particularly successful so far.
It is clear that some effort has gone into designing the mobile platform but nevertheless, it is something that still requires plenty of work for us to rate them as highly as some of the more polished bookies out there. Live betting has been stripped of all features and the menu across the sportsbook needs a full revamp.
Things do improve significantly at the casino but again the layout could do with some work as currently, it can take too long to find a specific game, which might well frustrate some customers.
Combined these issues with a complete absence of virtual sports and no way of viewing either of the two welcome offers (at the time of writing), and BetJOE does not offer as good a quality smartphone experience as we would have hoped for. For players who are more focused on casino games, the flaws of the mobile site won’t be noticed much at all, but unfortunately the same cannot be said for avid sports bettors.
