Imagine yourself as a punter, on a moving vehicle, trying to place a bet on your favourite team but unfortunately, you have to use your phone’s browser to do that? Isn’t that annoying? It most likely is. However, there are some top bookmakers who decided to come up with their mobile apps to reduce the hustle that bettors go through in order to place bets using their mobile devices.
Let me list these bookmakers starting with the best going downwards.
Bet365 should probably be at the top of the list because of the simplicity of the mobile app design. Or, maybe because it is the pioneer of Mobile betting. The app is compatible with the common mobile Operating Systems. For example, there is an app for iOS devices, Android devices, and even Blackberry phones. For the players who can’t find this app on their phones’ play store, bet365 took care of them too by creating a mobile betting site which they can use it comfortably and get the same experience as to those of mobile app users. It is believed that this bookmaker was the first to introduce in-play betting that mobile phone users can watch football matches live and in turn place bets the way they want.
William Hill is another bookmaker boasting with its catchy mobile app. The app’s homepage shows all available live football events that the players can easily choose from. The can be installed across different mobile platforms. Apple users can download the app from the app store while Android users can do it from their website since no gambling app is allowed in Google’s play store. The app is so easy to use such that even a new punter can manoeuvre comfortably within the app without the help of anyone. The players can easily cash in or out while using this mobile app.
Ladbrokes mobile app’s appearance here should not come as a surprise to anyone because the app is really beautiful and comfortable to use. The contents of the app have been well -arranged thanks to its excellent design. Players have access to so many live football matches that they can easily stream and also place bets in whichever way they want. The app allows users to perform a cashout. It also has quick links that the helps users quickly navigate to the frequently used areas like live soccer matches and others. Surprisingly, placing a bet using this app requires a maximum of 3 navigations after logging into it irrespective of the mobile device that the user has. This is probably why they have a fair share of mobile app users in the market. Since Google restricts gambling apps like Ladbrokes’ in the play store, android users have an option of visiting the bookmaker's site and still get a great experience just like the one that Apple product users and Windows phone users get while using the mobile app version.
A list will not be complete with the absence of Coral’s mobile app. This app allows its users to manage their Coral account and probably do a cash out whenever they feel like do that. Coral users have access to the many available live games that are being played worldwide. It is supported across different mobile platforms. However, Android users have a different option of downloading the app to their phone since this app is restricted to Google’s play store. They are required to input their phone number or email address at a certain page in coral’s website. There afterward, they will receive a link that they can use to download the app.
Users can easily stream live matches using this app especially after placing a bet on that specific match. There is this other interesting feature that is common on top bookmakers’ mobile apps. The feature is the ability for a user to claim free bet or bonus just the same way he/she could have claimed using the desktop’s website version.
Coral also has a mobile web version that is still comfortable to use. Anyone who is experiencing problems when installing the app possibly because of low storage space, need not worry because he/she can use the mobile web version and still place bets with use or do live streaming without experiencing problems.
Believe it or not, it would have been awkward for me not to list BetVictor’ exciting mobile app here. That is why I have saved myself some trouble by including this mobile app here. The app has straight forward directions on how to place bets. It also lists almost all football matches whether live or not. This gives a user many options of placing bets. It has a very well organized and easy to use menu. The app was developed with probably all mobile device users in mind because it is supported on most mobile software platforms.
Its users feel like they are in control of the match when they are placing a bet because of the simplicity of doing that.
Paddy Power’s mobile app should be the one closing this list. Not that there are no more mobile betting apps to list but the listed so far are probably the best worldwide. Think of it this way, the app has been neatly pampered, is supported across the common mobile Operating System platforms, not to mention its small size. It offers so many sporting events to its players that they can choose from whenever they want to place bets. It also has a very irresistible offer to its new users who places their first bets of £10. The offer the users get is £30. Isn’t that attractive? I bet everyone will rush to use this app.
That pretty much sums up my list which I am almost certain could have been the same as yours had you been asked the same question.
I don’t know about you but I think I am going to install all these apps in my phone right away considering that all seem to be addressing my needs of placing bets using my phone.
