Mobile betting is offered by all leading online bookmakers. You can use the mobile betting service of your favourite bookmaker simply by accessing the bookmaker’s web site. The site will automatically detect that you’re using a mobile device and a simplified version of the site content will display.
Alternatively, some bookmakers offer apps specifically for mobile betting. You can download and install these apps on mobile devices.
How does mobile betting differ?
The mobile version of a betting site typically has a simplified layout but otherwise offers the same features as the site you access using a PC, including live betting opportunities. Some mobile betting sites even offer free streaming of races and other sports events.
Due to limitations on screen space, it can be more difficult to find and browse betting markets on a mobile device than using a PC desktop. Keeping track of what’s on your betting slip can also be tricky. If you’re struggling to use a mobile betting site, you can typically choose to use a desktop view option instead.
Mobile betting apps
Mobile betting apps are available from most of the top online bookmakers, for IOS, Android and Windows devices. Mobile betting apps can reduce your data costs, providing faster page loading times and improving your ease of access to betting markets.
Benefits of mobile betting
The main benefit of mobile betting is accessibility. With mobile betting, you can place sports bets any time and from any location. All you need is an internet-enabled device and a data connection. Other benefits of mobile betting are that:
- you can skip the queues at the betting shops when attending live sports events or races
- you have remote access to a range of services offered by bookmakers, including live streaming, results centers and statistics you can use to make more informed bets.
Many bookmakers offer free bets to existing users when they use mobile betting for the first time. For example, William Hill offers a generous free bet when you place your first bet.
