How Does Mobile Betting Work?

betfredmobileEverybody’s talking about mobile betting these days, and with good reason. It’s the best, easiest and most exciting way to bet on sports or play poker and casino games. With mobile betting you can bet 24/7 whenever you like, from wherever you are.

You don’t need the latest phone or tablet either. Just about any modern phone will allow you to get in on the action.

The first thing you need to do is to open an account with one or more mobile bookmakers. There are plenty to choose from, and most will offer exclusive free bets for mobile users. Some of the best mobile betting sites are bet365, Genting Bet and Paddy Power.

Once you have your account, you can choose whether or not you want to download the bookie’s mobile betting app, or whether you’d prefer to bet directly through their mobile website.

Mobile Betting Apps

Using a mobile betting app is often faster than using the bookmaker’s mobile betting website, but it’s up to you whether you want to download the app or not.

All bookmakers have mobile websites as well and you can access exactly the same bets and odds this way. So if your
phone isn’t compatible with the apps, don’t worry, you’re not missing out.

Most mobile betting apps are available for iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry. We’ve tested and reviewed them all, so that we can recommend the best choices for your particular phone. Our reviews of the best Android apps are here, and for Apple users, the best iOS apps can be found here.

In-Play Mobile Betting

One of the best features of mobile betting is that it’s perfect for betting in-play. So whether you’re watching an event on TV, in the pub, or live at the stadium, you can bet instantly based on what you can see in front of you.

In-play betting is an excellent way to profit because you can use your judgement of what is actually happening live, rather than trying to guess what might happen in advance. And there is no faster way to bet in play than by using your mobile.

Mobile Casino Games

All of the best mobile bookmakers offer a range of casino games as well, and you can usually access these through the same app or mobile betting site, so there’s nothing else to download. You can use the same account for sports, casino and poker too.

Watch out for live dealer casino games on your mobile too. These are even better ways to play, as you can actually speak to the croupier live and get answers in real time.

It’s a great feeling to be more involved in the action and it genuinely feels like you’re taking a real live casino with you, wherever you are.
