You may not have a lot of babble around the MELbet app, but we think it’s one of those online cricket betting apps in India that goes about its job silently and efficiently. A smooth operator (pun intended). The website design is straightforward, and you’ll find a decent range of sports betting markets besides cricket – even hunting and fishing — to whet your appetite.

Pure betting, no frills — that’s how we’d describe this Cyprus-based bookie. If old-school betting is your thing, you’ll love 22Bet. That said, while we undoubtedly recommend the operator for the cricket betting app it offers, 22Bet’s primary focus is on football.

  • Generous welcome bonus up to ₹10,000
  • Quick registration
  • Competitive live betting odds
  • Website available in Hindi

NEO.bet

Neobet app on mobile

  • Cricket betting app for Android: Yes
  • Cricket betting app for iOS: Yes

 

NEO.bet is still an up-and-coming online bookmaker, but we suggest you give them a shot. They’ve pulled out all the stops to ensure Indians have a good time playing with their cricket betting app. An all-inclusive sportsbook, a straightforward layout for easy navigation, live betting, live chat support, a handsome welcome bonus, multiple promos, and a decent IPL betting app — NEO.bet covers almost all bases.

Matchbook

  • Cricket betting app for Android: Yes
  • Cricket betting app for iOS: Yes

 

When it comes to featuring a user-friendly design and diverse betting options, we reckon Matchbook is on par with some of the top-rated cricket betting apps available in India. Of course, like every other bookmaker, there are a few issues with this operator, the most glaring of them being that it doesn’t accept INR, and there’s a dearth of Indian-centric deposit and withdrawal methods. But if you can look past these gripes, Matchbook promises to be an excellent package otherwise.

Matchbook Pros & Cons

Pros 

  • Live chat
  • Modern-day, slick design
  • Easy to use, beginner-friendly
  • Decent welcome offer
  • Detailed FAQ section
  • Multiple cricket betting markets

Cons

  • Not the most competitive betting odds
  • Doesn’t accept INR
  • Inadequate banking options commonly used in India

 

Matchbook Features

  • Deep liquidity
  • Straightforward, easy UI
  • Live chat support
  • In-play betting
  • Betting previews
  • Cricket betting strategies

PariPesa

  • Cricket betting app for Android: Yes
  • Cricket betting app for iOS: No

 

With PariPesa, you have a pretty big sportsbook featuring several cricket betting options, sections dedicated to (live) results & stats, popular payment/withdrawal methods like Paytm, GPay & PhonePe, a responsive and fast live betting function, and quite a few bonuses and promos to beef up your winnings. Also, there’s one-click registration, so that’s a hassle taken care of right there. In fact, the layout of the PariPesa app (and the website) is similar to 1xBet, barring a few differences. So if you’re familiar with the latter, exploring and navigating Paripesa will be a walk in the park.

PariPesa Pros & Cons

Pros 

  • 1st Deposit bonus up to ₹8,000
  • Recommended IPL betting app
  • Hindi version of the website available
  • Stats & results sections

Marathonbet

Marathonbet-mobile

  • Cricket betting app for Android: Yes
  • Cricket betting app for iOS: Yes

 

Now, going with Marathonbet will probably raise an eyebrow or two. From our experience playing with this Russia-based operator, we think it’s a decent package, not great. It doesn’t offer a welcome bonus, which means they’re satisfied with their current clientele and don’t want to attract new users at a cost. Another drawback that they can undoubtedly work on is the limit imposed on winnings. However, these are generally common complaints you’d have with any bookmaker, honestly, and Marathonbet tries to make amends for it by focusing on competitive odds and fast payouts.

Marathonbet Pros & Cons

Pros 

  • Wide range of markets, good live betting options
  • Fast withdrawals times
  • Competitive odds, low minimum requirements
  • Holds multiple licenses (UKGC, Spain, Alderney)
  • Simple, no-gimmick design

Cons

  • No welcome bonus currently
  • No live streaming
  • Some may find the website banal, design-wise
  • Limits on winnings
  • Limited promos for Indians

 

Marathonbet Features

  • Live betting
  • Top odds
  • One of the fastest-withdrawal sites
  • Low minimum requirements

Casumo

Casumo app on mobile

  • Cricket betting app for Android: Yes
  • Cricket betting app for iOS: No

 

It’s easy to see why Casumo’s one of the best online cricket betting apps in India at this time. Thanks to its smart UI, a modern, slick design, decent sportsbook, and solid reputation in the betting community, the operator seems to have ticked almost every box to grab the Indian punter’s attention. No surprise then that Casumo has been consistently racking up favourable reviews from users worldwide.

That said, we weren’t really floored by the experience as there are a few problem areas. What are they?

Casumo Pros & Cons

Pros 

  • Accepts Netbanking, GPay, PhonePe, Paytm, Visa
  • Fresh, appealing website layout
  • Sizeable welcome bonus up to ₹10,000
  • Good live betting platform with a virtual rendition of the match
  • Instant assistance on live chat
  • Recommended IPL betting app, in particular

Cons

  • No mobile betting app for iOS
  • The advanced bettor might find the sportsbook to be limited in scope
  • Bonus valid for 7 days only

 

Casumo Features

  • Supports UPI, Paytm, GPay, Visa, PhonePe
  • Live sports betting with virtual rendition of the game
  • Bet Builder customisation option
  • Modern & a beginner-friendly design

ComeOn!

Comeon app on mobile

 

  • Cricket betting app for Android: Yes
  • Cricket betting app for iOS: Yes

 

ComeOn! packs a host of innovative features expected from a present-day online bookmaker. They’ve recently started catering to Indian punters who are looking to bet on cricket, football, tennis, kabaddi, horse racing, and more. Yes, there are some pitfalls with the operator, but nothing so major that you have to keep off it.

ComeOn! Pros & Cons

Pros 

  • 100% Deposit bonus, cricket free bets
  • Prompt assistance over live chat
  • Various sports betting options apart from cricket
  • Supports UPI, Paytm, GPay, Visa, Mastercard, bank transfer
  • Buy your bonuses via the ComeOn! ‘Bazaar’ feature

Cons

  • Live chat support
  • Modern-day design
  • Convenient banking methods
  • ‘Bazaar’ where you can buy your own bonuses
  • Cash-out
  • Live betting

BETWINNER

Betwinner app on mobile

  • Cricket betting app for Android: Yes
  • Cricket betting app for iOS: Yes

 

BETWINNER’s USP has to be their live betting service, which we reckon has few rivals. Odds-wise, they’re on par with other operators available in India. That said, design-wise, you’d be forgiven for mistaking BETWINNER for 1xBet, as they’re almost body doubles of each other. For the first-time bettor, the app can come across as slightly cluttered, but not off-putting.

BETWINNER Pros & Cons

Pros 

  • Excellent for live betting
  • Multi Bet feature allows simultaneous live betting on multiple matches
  • One-click registration
  • Pay with UPI

Cons

  • Scope for improvement in customer support quality
  • 24×7 Live chat missing
  • More India-specific banking options necessary for optimum experience

LV BET

  • Cricket betting app for Android: Yes
  • Cricket betting app for iOS: Yes

 

It hasn’t been a long time since LV BET started operating, but that really doesn’t mean much as the bookmaker has quite a lot to offer to punters. The website’s vivid, striking design will hit home with first-time young bettors, and the pre-match bets are as good as any, really. We contacted their customer help desk and were impressed by the alacrity. Also, the quick registration process helps.

LV BET Pros & Cons

Pros 

  • Satisfactory live chat support
  • 100% Sports betting bonus, various promos
  • Competitive cricket betting odds
  • Fun & youthful design

Cons

 

LV BET Features

  • Live results & stats for cricket
  • Live chat
  • Cash-out
  • In-play betting
  • ‘Match Tracker’ feature

Best Cricket Betting Apps For Android

You’ll discover that recommended applications for Android mostly overlap with the top online cricket betting apps in general. That’s because Android holds a 95.23% share in India’s mobile operating system market. Apple’s iOS is a distant second, with a market share of just above 3%. So it only makes sense for operators to focus their efforts on Android.

That out of the way, here are the best cricket betting apps for Android:

Betting App Welcome Offer
Parimatch 150% up to ₹12,000
Betway
100% Bonus up to ₹2,500
bet365
Up to ₹4,000 in bet credits
MELbet
100% First deposit bonus up to ₹8,000
10CRIC
Deposit ₹1,000 and bet with ₹2,500

Download A Cricket Betting App For Android

Please note that nine out of ten cricket betting apps for Android will need to be downloaded directly from the operator’s website (and not Google Play). But that’s not a problem at all since you only need to visit the website and find the APK download link. We’ll show you how step-by-step.

For this explanation, we’ll take Betway as our preferred app

A screenshot of betway app

Step 1: Search for the preferred operator’s website on your mobile browser
Step 2: Download the APK
Step 3: Once the download is complete, you will have to confirm if you want to install the application. Click ‘yes’ or ‘install’ and wait till installation is complete. Sometimes, on your phone’s security settings, you have to select ‘yes’ when given the prompt “allow apps to be downloaded from third-party/unknown sources?” This is a standard process, nothing to worry about.
Step 4: Log into the app and start playing.

Best Cricket Betting Apps For iOS

Step 2: Click on ‘install’, and once the installation is complete, go to your phone settings.

Step 3: Select ‘General’ and click on ‘Device Management’.

Step 4: If you see ‘Trust’ in the box, click on it. Else, there will be an option to click ‘yes’ on ‘add the website to reliable sources’. Do that.

Step 5: Login and start playing.

Online Cricket Betting Apps vs Sites

All the best cricket betting sites are optimised for mobile devices, meaning you can easily open them and play seamlessly on your mobile browser. So why use a cricket betting app anyway? A perfectly valid question, really.

Though functionally, there’s no difference between a mobile-compatible site and an app, there are a few ways in which the two differ. Here’s a quick comparison:

Cricket Betting App Cricket Betting Site
Everything you need in one place, with one-touch access You need to search for the site on your browser, which, while isn’t cumbersome by any means, is slightly time-consuming
You need to download the software, which will take up space No need to download anything, so no extra space is occupied
Will need regular updates Nothing of that sort
Improved gameplay, better graphics Using the site through your mobile browser may compromise graphics and gameplay
Top-notch live betting experience Live betting is not optimum on mobile browser, but no problem on desktop/laptop

Online Cricket Betting Apps: Pros & Cons

Now, honestly, there are no real advantages (or the lack of it) of using a mobile application over the regular web browser. However, what there is are just a few things to consider. So here they are:

NOTE: A lot of it actually depends on whether the app is a well-designed one or not

Online Cricket Betting Apps Pros & Cons

Pros

  • One-click access
  • User experience is better (opinion alert)
  • Live betting is definitely better (collective opinion)
  • Push notifications on upcoming games, boosted odds, special promos

Cons

  • Takes up space on mobile
  • Will need regular updates for bug fixing
  • Sometimes, updates don’t add any value whatsoever

IPL 2022 Betting

Factors To Consider For Choosing A Cricket Betting App

  • Ease of download, straightforward design
    The cricket betting app you prefer should be easy and free to download. The ones we have recommended offer ease of navigation, have an intuitive UI, and as a result, are highly user-friendly. No matter which app you choose, always assess how functional it is.
  • Availability of multiple cricketing tournaments
    This is, of course, a no-brainer. A good online cricket betting app must feature the world’s top cricket tournaments, and not just the ones the Indian team is playing. That aside, the quality of odds and betting markets is also vital. No point playing with sub-standard odds, we reckon.
  • Quick log-in and registration
    It will only be laborious registering with an online cricket betting app that needs you to comply with a barrage of questions and formalities. So, apps like 1xBet, MELbet, BETWINNER, PariPesa deserve special mentions because they provide one-touch log-in/registration, which saves a lot of time that would’ve otherwise been spent on elaborate digital paperwork.
  • Customer support
    Heard of the adage, ‘A stitch in time saves nine’? Timely support is crucial, and we think it a wasteful exercise to play with a cricket betting app that doesn’t offer assistance when you need it. Almost all the apps we’ve recommended offer prompt live chat support or 24×7 customer assistance through various means. My shout-outs to LV BET, Matchbook, and 1xBet for having solved my queries promptly.
  • Bonuses & promos
    One of the ways an online cricket betting app tries to stand out from the competition is by offering customers (both old and new) meaty welcome bonuses and free bets upon registration. Usually, you become eligible for one when you make your first deposit at the operator (called a first-deposit bonus). But there’s something known as a no-deposit bonus too, which, as the name suggests, will be applicable for you even if you haven’t made any deposit, so do check out for those.The wagering requirements of these will vary, of course. But the essence is the same: you minimise your investment and enhance the chances of potential profits.
  • Banking options
    Not just the number, but the relevance of payment/withdrawal options on offer is an important consideration too. All the cricket betting apps for iOS & Android recommended here offer some of India’s most commonly used betting payment methods, including UPI, Google Pay, Paytm, PhonePe, Netbanking, and Visa/Mastercard.

Cricket Betting Apps FAQs

1️⃣ Are online cricket betting apps secure and legal?

Absolutely. All the operators we recommend are authorised by leading gambling jurisdictions — like the UKGC or the Malta Gaming Authority — and have their operations based outside of India, making them completely legal. Please understand that a betting app is only an extension of the site. So if that particular operator accepts Indian players, then its online cricket betting app is legitimate too.
