The Coral mobile app – our review

The Coral mobile app is one of the best of its kind in the industry, allowing users to bet on a wide range of sports and markets, all from their handheld device. You’ll get everything you would expect from using the desktop site – including betting, banking and customer services – on your mobile or tablet at the flick of a finger.

The app has betting in-play, cash out, live streaming, football, horse racing and plenty more besides. The lay-out is kept very simple to ensure it’s user-friendly, yet it remains stylish and super responsive, critical if playing on the move.

You can download the app to ios or android devices in a few simple steps. We show just how easy it is downloading to ios below…

  • Search for Coral in the App Store
  • Choose the sportsbook version and touch Get
  • The download process will begin and complete automatically
  • The app will be available to use on your home screen in seconds.

Downloading to an android is slightly different, but just as easy…

  • Search for Coral in your mobile web browser and open the site
  • You’ll find a homepage link to download the app
  • Click the link and the app will download on its own
  • You can now open and bet on the sports markets

If you’d prefer to bet on bingo, casino, games or lotto you must download another app. Coral keep them all separate to ensure they work to the best of their ability and there’s no point bingo markets slowing down the sportsbook app if you’re not going to use them.

When firing up the app you’ll be blown away by the choice. On the homepage you’ll find quick links to the day’s most popular sporting events, including live football and tennis. You’ll also notice the next three horse races due off, meaning you can bet on the favourite in one or build a treble quickly for an interest bet. Perfect if you’re passing a few spare minutes.

When clicking on any of the sport, there’s a world of betting opportunities. Football, for example, has the sport, then the competition, fixture and then all the markets you’d ever want. There’s match winner, both teams to score, total goals, half-time/full-time, Asian handicap, and hundreds more besides. Many of these markets are updated live thanks to in-play betting, with the odds altered to match the flow of play.

All of Coral’s special offers and promotions for both new and existing customers are available to use on the app. The welcome offer is always being updated to keep it fresh, but past promos have included free bets, matched bets and price boosts. Some of the most popular recurring offers over the years have included money back on horse racing if your selection is second behind the favourite, accumulator insurance on football where your stake will be returned if you lose by just one leg, best odds guaranteed on horse and greyhound racing, football jackpot and more.

Some of the benefits of using the mobile app over the full site are its convenience, allowing you to bet whenever, wherever and on whatever, including in-play. There’s live streaming of sports that can be watched on your handset with a reliable internet connection, this includes free horse racing.

When using the app, you’ll also find it easy to deposit and withdraw funds, keep up-to-date with live scores and match stats and get news on your favourite Premier League teams. One of the best features of using the Coral mobile app is the cash out. If your football accumulator is doing well but you are out of the house, away from your home computer you may miss a fantastic opportunity to cash out for a profit. You can now do this on the app. Check the scores, the cash out value and decide if you’d like to collect the money or let the bet ride to a finish.

We really have to admit we are big fans of the Coral mobile app as it allows you freedom to bet when suits you. The app is basic, but that has been done on purpose to ensure you can find and bet on sports effortlessly. It’s similar to the desktop site in both style and lay-out, meaning you’ll find it familiar, even if it’s your first visit. The loading times are quick on ios and android and there are no lags, buffering or sticky spells when watching live sport.

The homescreen has quick links to the day’s biggest sporting events, making a punt very easy to do while on the move. If you have a bit more time, you’ll find the navigation has sports sorted by alphabetical order, another measure that helps keep things moving. When into the sport you can bet on fixtures today, tomorrow, in future or antepost.

A mobile app is designed to work well with in-play betting and Coral’s certainly does that. You can be watching the live football on a big screen, take out your phone and place an in-plat bet, all in a few seconds. It has to be fast and responsive, and it is. If you’re on the commute to work or at lunch you can squeeze in the night’s football acca in no time, or even bet on a horse race due to go off. Speed is king here, but it’s the customer who is calling the shots.

If you already have a Coral account you can download the app – this only has to be done once – then bet on sports, both pre-match and in-play, deposit or withdraw funds, contact customer services, take advantage of promotions and watch live sport. Everything you can do on the full site, but where you want to.

If you fancy a go on the likes of Roulette and Poker, simply download the relevant app and start playing. It has the same process as downloading the sports app.
