Mobile betting sites or apps have the capability to offer the same range of features as a desktop version of a sportsbook website, such as latest news, live streaming of events, same sports markets and odds, as well as full in-play service. It all depends on how good of a mobile betting service the sportsbook can offer. In addition, the following products are usually included:
• Live betting and live odds
• Racing futures, props and specials
• Dedicated mobile bet slip with calculator of odds
• Stats center, analysis and game previews
• Audio and video commentaries etc.
All the things normally found at sportsbooks that make betting easier can be found in mobile betting too. But transferring the entire online betting experience on mobiles doesn’t include only these aspects. The service won’t be complete if different types of bets have not been made available. The range of bet types and bet variety can be huge, for example:
• Normal wagering options such as straights, parlays, if bets, teasers etc.
• Single and multiple bets, such as double, treble and accumulator
• Full cover bets and full cover bets with singles, such as trixie, yankee, lucky 15 etc.
• Specialty bets, handicaps, futures, forecasts and so on.
As online betting solutions develop, so does the range of mobile devices that are compatible with sports betting apps. Usually a sportsbook will offer separate betting apps for different smartphones with different operating systems, or just a general mobile betting site that can be used even with older mobile devices. Some offer both options. But generally, mobile betting apps are offered for devices running on iOS, Android, Blackberry, and recently Windows.iPhone/iPAD
The iPhone has revolutionized the way we bet and has always been perfect for mobile betting. Today there are many fantastic sports betting apps for iPhone. They were among the first ones to emerge on the market, followed by apps for Android. iPhones and iPads are very handy devices with the option to use tons of different apps, among which betting apps, which are usually small, fast, and efficient for betting.Android
Android betting apps were the second ones to be globally released after those for iPhone, and immediately became widely used. Android betting apps maybe have a slightly better chance of being used before iPhone betting apps, since the Android operating system is more widespread and exploited for many models by different manufacturers. If you have some of the latest models of Samsung, LG, or HTC, you’ll really enjoy Android betting apps.Blackberry
Blackberry falls behind a bit compared to its competition regarding apps, mainly due to the popularity of Android devices and iPhones, but there are some sportsbooks that offer Blackberry dedicated app besides those for Android and iOS. Those that don’t have a Blackberry betting app usually offer a mobile site that can be readily used with any mobile device, including Blackberry devices.Others
As the number of Windows OS phones increase, sportsbooks tend to include them too in the offer through mobile sites. Moreover, Windows phones and tablets can be easily used for surfing the desktop websites of sportsbooks, so actually there are no Windows dedicated apps. Besides Windows phones, players can bet through their older mobile devices (non-smartphones) by visiting the mobile betting sites.
Mobile betting offers the same functionality as desktop or laptop betting (betting via your computer), and it all depends on how good of a betting app or mobile site you are using. In essence any mobile betting app or site offers the basic functions of signing up for an account, making a deposit, placing a bet and requesting a payout, but even more elaborate functions too like live streaming, live betting etc.
Signing up via mobile is as simple as signing up via your computer at a sportsbooks website. The sign-up or registration button will clearly show on the home page of the app or mobile site, from where you can continue. Depositing or requesting a payout is also simple, you either do that through your account or through a separate banking section on the app or mobile site. Just select your method, the amount to deposit or withdraw and enjoy your betting money.
