How Mobile Betting Apps Are Positively Changing The Sports Betting Landscape



There are many great reasons why more and more sports bettors are turning to mobile apps for punting on their favorite sports events.

Regardless of whether you bet on NFL games or horse races held in Australia, mobile betting apps are a much better option as they give you the flexibility to bet from wherever you want, whatever time you like, using your smart phone or any other compatible mobile device.

Furthermore, the latest free bet offers provided by various bookmakers for using such apps, makes all the more reason for you to sign up with them.

Let’s learn more about how mobile betting apps are positively changing the sports betting
experience and landscape world over.

They make betting more convenient.

Although you can also punt from an online bookmaker’s website, from within a web browser on your desktop/laptop, using a mobile betting app of the same bookmaker makes the process smoother and quicker.

Furthermore, you don’t necessarily have to depend on a high-speed Internet connection and hefty hardware to place your bets. You can do it even on the move, while you are travelling in the tube, dining out with your girlfriend or when stuck in traffic!

Fastest growing sector

Mobile betting through apps is by far the fastest growing sector in the United Kingdom’s
sports betting industry.

The other countries (where sports betting is legal) aren’t too far behind either.

Unlike a few years ago, nowadays it isn’t uncommon for a reputed online bookmaker to receive a good number of sports bets through such apps.

For instance, William Hill had once reported that as many as 34% of all its bets accepted during the first quarter of 2013 came through mobile devices, which was a significant 298% increase for the same time period in 2012.

Another popular online bookmaker Paddy Power reported revenues as high as € 104 million during the first half of 2013, via mobile sports betting.

More and more bookies are taking the online route.

Aside from the fact that more and more punters are betting through mobile apps these days, online bookmakers are also making the most of the benefits offered by this new innovation.

A large majority of UK-based sports betting portals have successfully transitioned to the
online world, and are actively accepting bets through their corresponding mobile


The increasing penetration of tablets and smartphones can be held majorly responsible for
this shift in the mobile sports betting industry.

Placing bets on your favorite sports events has never been this easy! Notwithstanding the kind of free bets, bonuses and offers that betting platforms shower their users with these days, the very idea of being able to bet anywhere, anytime, as long as you have a stable Internet connection, is the biggest selling point of these apps.

Although the interfaces of these apps may be different from their corresponding desktop versions, the content always stays the same, implying that you can use them to make all the picks you can normally make on a desktop or laptop.
