There can be no denying that online betting has become huge business over the past couple of decades and more recently, online players have increasingly moved towards ‘betting on the go’ via smartphones or tablet. The two main mobile platforms are iOS and Android and to that end most bookmakers have geared their mobile apps towards these.
All online bookmakers offer new customers some form of welcome bonus, whether it be a matched deposit bonus, a risk-free bet or a simple free bet bonus. These are almost always available when you register with an online bookmaker using a mobile app and in some cases the welcome bonus on offer may be significantly more generous when you actually do register via mobile. Alternatively the welcome bonus on offer via an app may be different to that available on desktop with the same operator and as such it pays to do some homework here.
Choosing an online bookmaker can seem like a daunting task and while a dedicated app may seem completely necessary, it is worth remembering that not all online bookies actually provide one. That’s certainly not to say that you cannot bet with these bookies on mobile – far from it. All bookmakers – whether they have a dedicated mobile app or not – offer websites which are fully optimised for use on mobile or tablet as well as desktop. This is now always the case, the only difference is that you need to visit the site instead of opening an app.
Even if you do find a bookmaker app that ticks all of the boxes, you must then ensure that the bookmaker in question actually covers the sports or betting markets which you prefer to bet on. Some bookies place more emphasis on particular sports than others, indeed some don’t offer markets on horse racing or greyhounds while others focus mainly on these. Also take sure that the bookmaker app which you are downloading offers the best odds on the sports which you like to bet on. This is vital to ensure that you always get the best value.
