Is there a Betzest app available for Android?
Having a dedicated application is an excellent feature for any online bookmaker or casino site, but you will not find one at Betzest at this moment in time. There is however a way of getting quicker access to the site, courtesy of the Betzest Android shortcut. This helpful little trick means you can go directly from your smartphone’s home page to the Betzest website with just a tap of a button. To install the shortcut, follow the steps below:
- Head to the settings menu on your phone then select security > unknown sources > allow installation of apps from unknown sources.
- Head to the official Betzest website (you can use our link).
- Tap the ‘mobile shortcut’ icon, which should be visible in the top left corner of the screen.
- Tap the ‘Download for Android Devices’ button.
- Select the menu button and tap ‘add Betzest to home screen’ and click add’ again to confirm.
Is there a Betzest App available for iOS?
Although we may see one in future, currently Betzest is unable to offer any sort of iOS app. As with Android devices though, they do offer a ‘download’ in the form of a shortcut which sees Betzest added to your iPhone’s home screen much like a normal app would. Installation of the shortcut is both highly recommended and very straightforward, as we explain in the steps below:
- Access Betzest.com using Safari.
- Tap the link to the ‘Mobile Shortcut’ which is presented on the ‘featured’ items list.
- Tap the orange ‘Download for iOS devices’ button.
- Select the bookmark icon at the bottom of the screen.
- When the bookmark options appear, select the ‘add to home screen’ button.
- Choose to call the shortcut Betzestand then tap ‘Add’ to complete the process.
Review of Mobile Site Version
In the absence of a mobile app, Betzest has a created a mobile version of their site which is fully customized to work smoothly on mobile browsers. Exceedingly similar in layout to the desktop site, anyone switching between devices will find the transition to be an especially smooth one. It has all the distinctive and vibrant swagger that Bezest for PC has plus the excellent range of menus.
It is these menus which facilitate easy navigation across the Betzest mobile site. All the main areas can be accessed via the top menu icons while a scrolling list of promotions is located underneath. The full list of services the mobile site offers can be accessed via the main menu button, situated in the very top left-hand corner. It’s here where users will also find the search box, perfect for looking up individual sporting fixtures or casino games.
For anything account-related, simply tap on your profile in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. By doing so, you can access a wide range of services such as placing account limits, viewing bonus activity or uploading verification documents. In terms of functionality, the Betzest mobile version has it all, and there is a high level of performance across all areas of the mobile site.
Sports Betting on Mobile
Whenever you go to place your bets at Betzest, there will be a section for today’s events as well as upcoming contests for those taking place most imminently. Within these two options, each sport has its own section, providing an easy way for users to bet on all soon to be played action.
In most cases though, you may find it easier to use the purple menu to filter by sports as this will give you the full range of fixtures available on-site, regardless of date. Tap your desired selection, and a complete list of all competitions and leagues will appear. Unfortunately, it is not possible to view more than one league at the same time, so there is a little bit of going back and forth on the mobile site.
This is one of a very small number of minor inconveniences though, as placing bets here is a simple task. You can add the two or three most popular markets, e.g. total points, to your bet slip without clicking inside a fixture, simply use the top filter instead. For everything else, tap on the selected event to reveal all betting options. Although all markets are fully expanded by default, causing a fair amount of scrolling, you can jump to a particular category by using the menu options.
Mobile Site Features
Here we take a look at some of the features you might expect to find on a modern-day mobile sportsbook.
One feature you will not find anywhere across the Betzest mobile site is live streaming. Also missing from the desktop site, live footage of events is not something Betzest is yet able to offer its customers. Across most matches, however, customers do have access to live animations and a selection of insightful match statistics. To view these, simply tap the down arrow above the choice of betting markets.
Mobile users have access to the entire catalogue of live fixtures (the same as customers accessing the site on desktop), but it is a catalogue lacking in real depth. All major clashes are covered but a lot of the more minor fixtures you might see on other sites, do not feature here.
Another drawback, but one specific to mobile users, is that they cannot access the added in-play features such as text commentary, live table and head to head record, which are available on PC.
On the bright side, many matches come with a strong selection of betting markets, including fast markets in sports like tennis and football. In instances where the odds change, they will flash green or red depending on if the price has shortened/increased, serving as a useful visual aid.
The ability to cash out has returned to Betzest after a temporary hiatus. It’s something mobile users can access only on specific bets within certain sports but is not widely available. To see which bets you will be able to cash out early when the event goes live, look for those accompanied by a stack of gold coins. If the stack does not appear, it is likely you will have to see your bet out until the very end.
Betzest casino mobile
The once rather large Betzest casino was massively cut down in size as it sought a new gambling license from the Malta Gaming Authority. Although the license is now acquired, the company now faces the task of rebuilding its collection of games, gradually adding more options and more developers to the site. We have been told to expect many more games in the near future, but until then, users must make do with a small complement courtesy of NetEnt.
The vast majority of NetEnt games are mobile compatible so do feature at the Betzest mobile casino. Few categories of game are covered within the small offering, but players can still choose from slots (including video and progressive), blackjack and roulette. Developed by such a big name in the industry, the NetEnt games work seamlessly across the majority of mobile devices.

About the Company
It was in 2018 when Betzest got the green light to go live, offering their services at first in countries such as Germany, Norway and Finland. Initially, they started operating with a Curacao-issued licence, but early on in 2020, they acquired a new one from the more respected Malta Gaming Authority. The Betzest brand is owned by Betomall, based in Malta, while the platform is run by Sporting Tech.
According to Betzest, their early growth suggests they are “likely to become the next Sportsbook giant in the industry”. With so many other names gunning to enter into the top tier of such a competitive market, this is a rather hopeful claim but is a fair indication of their ambition. Becoming a “Sportsbook giant” may be a big ask, but we would not be at all surprised if Betzest ends up sticking around for many years to come given the range and quality of services they offer.
App Rating and Conclusion
As far as delivering the desktop experience on mobile, Betzest scores quite highly. Some supplementary information is not present during in-play betting, and virtual sports do not work smoothly but other than this there is little to fault. Of course, it is a little easier to transfer your site to a smaller screen when you do not have more complex tools such as live streaming, but the task remains a challenging one.
Avoiding many of the pitfalls commonly associated with creating a mobile site, Betzest is able to provide customers with a smooth smartphone experience. The website works very intuitively, and links are consistently quick to load across all pages. Time will tell if this holds true when more and more casino games are added to the site, but we are reasonably confident Betzest will deliver, and they are well worth checking out if you like to play on the move.
