Modern technology gives us many things.

How to Choose the Best Sports Betting App

The move to online completely revolutionised the betting industry. It opened up a new range of different markets and gave access to customers that may not have even thought of gambling before.

But there has been another big spike in customers in the last few years as online sports betting firms have rolled out downloadable mobile apps. These have proved even more convenient for today’s bettor and are now the most common way of gambling in many areas. But how do you know whether a betting app is good or not? Read on to find out.

Legal Issues

Compared to many European countries there are far more restrictions when it comes to online sports betting. As with the US, potential Aussie bettors are not legally allowed to gamble on the same range of markets as many of their counterparts around the world.

So the first thing that needs to be checked when it comes to betting apps – no matter where you are – is whether gambling is legal in your location. In some places there are specific restrictions surrounding betting online or with an app. So do these checks now to avoid disappointment in the future.

Betting Markets and Odds

Once you have worked out whether you can legally bet in your location, you should check that your potential app offers a good range of betting markets. It doesn’t matter whether you only have plans to bet on one sport – or even one league. A wider range of betting opportunities is a good sign of how the app and the sportsbook view their business.

You should also do a quick odds comparison with other online betting sites. If you are new to gambling you may see very little difference with the prices offered by sportsbooks. But it is these small differences in odds that can mean a lot when it comes to winning returns.

Welcome Offers and Promotions

Many aspects of marketing of sports betting is prohibited in Australia but online firms will still offer welcome bonuses to entice potential customer account holders. If you are able to claim them, these are a great way to start off your time with a betting site – although they will come with terms and conditions.

It is probably a better idea to take more notice of the promotions offered to existing customers. This will give you a good idea of how you will be treated after you have signed up and how much your business is appreciated. There may even be mobile app-specific offers to take advantage of.

Usability and Navigation

This is an aspect of a betting app that you won’t really be able to ascertain without actually downloading it. There are plenty of review sites available on the internet that can help you in this regard though. These apps are free to download though, so it won’t cost anything to do some research.

You should obviously look for a betting app that is very responsive. You may want to be placing bets reacting to sports action, so it is crucial that your app can operate quickly. Being able to find what you want in the shortest time is also vital. A betting app should be intuitive above almost everything else.

Extra Features

The truth is that many online betting sites are remarkably similar with what they offer. That is why a good mobile app could make all the difference. If you find an app that is easy to use and is very reactive, it could be the reason why you register with that sportsbook.

So do also check for any extras that might be offered through the app. This could be the exclusive promotions that we mentioned before – or something like a live streaming feature that allows you to watch live sporting events. Getting the right app can make your betting experience even better, so it is well worth doing your research.
