Betfair has upgraded its iOS betting app in time for the Rugby World Cup which gets underway on Friday 18th September.
The update brings greatly improved in-app coverage of rugby union with a wider range of betting markets and special markets in a dedicated World Cup portal. Also included is the addition of live streaming video content to the cash out page as Betfair continues to enhance the cash out feature following the introduction of partial cash out last month.
Betfair promotes the app with the tag-line “the home of cash out” and with the addition of more video content it is ahead of the pack in terms of cash out features.
The app offers fast second-by-second In-Play betting on hundreds of markets across most major sports and with cash out, customers have more control than ever with the option to take their winnings or cut losses at any time.

The latest update to the Betfair iOS app is available on iPhone and iPad and sees a revamp in rugby union coverage, both in terms of betting markets and free bet offers.

There’s betting on every Pool game with over 25 markets available on each match
The app comes bundled with a free bet when you join Betfair, bet £10 and get a £30 free bet. The app features daily promotions with money back specials, double odds and acca bonuses including a great free bet offer on the Rugby World Cup.
Place a minimum of £25 on the Rugby World Cup Top Tryscorer market and Betfair will give you a £5 free bet every time your player scores in a Pool match.
Rugby World Cup Top Tryscorer Tips
Betfair’s Rugby World Cup Top Tryscorer free bet offer will give you a £5 free bet for every group match your selection goes over for a try.
Teams play four games in their Pool which means you could pick up £20 in free bets courtesy of your Top Tryscorer selection before the quarter-final stage and with a bit of luck, could be ahead of the bookie before Top Tryscorer is decided. So who are the main contenders for Top Tryscorer?
JULIAN SAVEA – Betfair odds 11/2
The All Blacks wing burst on to the international scene when scoring a hattrick on his debut against Ireland in June 2012. Savea has become one of the most prolific tryscorers in international rugby and has scored 30 tries in 35 appearances for New Zealand.
The All Blacks Pool C opponents are Argentina, Tonga, Georgia and Namibia, none of which look equipped to stop the flying winger who has scored eight times against second seeds Argentina.
NEHE MILNER-SKUDDER – Betfair odds 9/1
Another All-Black, the winger began his career as a rugby league player in Sydney before returning to New Zealand to join local union side Manatuwu. He was promoted to the Hurricanes in the Super 15s for 2015 and has won two caps for New Zealand, scoring twice on his debut against Australia.
BRYAN HABANA – Betfair odds 12/1
Habana has had a distinguished international career and was a member of South Africa’s 2007 World Cup winning side. The Springbok winger scored eight tries in the competition, equalling Jonah Lomu’s record for number of tries in one World Cup and he has since gone on to score 295 points for South Africa in 112 appearances.
Other teams in the Pool are Scotland, Samoa, Japan and USA – so no shortage of fodder for the man who once raced a cheetah over 100 metres.
ANTHONY WATSON – Betfair odds 20/1
Watson is England’s bets hope of topping the tryscorer charts. He made his debut for England in the Autumn Internationals against New Zealand and has gone on to score five tries in 11 appearances for his country.
The 21-year-old has been ear marked for the top from an early age and goes into the finals full of confidence after scoring three tries in the recent warm up games against France and Ireland at Twickenham.
ISRAEL FOLAU – Betfair odds 20/1
Folau has represented Australia under both codes and even had a spell playing Australian Rules for Greater Western Sydney. Not the most popular of players who has been criticised for changing allegiances and he’ll be playing in the Japanese Top League after the World Cup.
Folau’s rugby union record stands up with 18 tries in 33 appearances and the winger equalled an Australian record when scoring ten tries in one season following his international debut in June 2013. The World Cup stage could inspire a similar level of performance from the controversial 26-year-old who should be coming into his prime.
