Allowing users to place bets and wagers on the go, online betting apps have hit the market, offering convenience to users and providing betting companies with a new way to attract sports fans.
The proliferation of smartphones has made it easier than ever for people to access apps and digital content on the go. While many of these apps are designed for fun, they can also be used for serious betting and gaming purposes. And with the 2022 World Cup in sight, major sports like football have plenty to offer the app developer.
Here we’ll assess the various options available for online gambling on mobile devices, identifying the key advantages and disadvantages of each.
Bwin, Bet365, and SportsBetting
The world’s largest online betting companies, Bwin, Bet365, and SportsBetting, dominate the market and each provide a wide variety of betting markets and mobile apps to choose from. Each app store offers numerous titles and platforms, so finding a suitable match for your needs can be difficult.
Bwin, for example, boasts a wide range of sports including football, tennis, hockey, and more, along with a selection of traditional games such as blackjack and roulette. On the other hand, SportsBetting caters mainly to British sports fans with its array of soccer games and fixtures.
Prestige, Winner, and BetFoster
Mobile gambling apps aren’t just limited to sporting events and competitions either, as titles like Prestige, Winner, and BetFoster allow users to place wagers on a variety of topics ranging from politics to entertainment and lifestyle.
Prestige, for example, has a fairly wide variety of sports content, including football, Formula One, and golf. And like its rivals, it provides a variety of betting markets for users to choose from. Whether you’re a fan of traditional sports like tennis or football or prefer to bet on the next James Bond film, Prestige has you covered.
BetFoster, a brand new app from Bettingfan.com, is similar to the other two in that it provides a variety of sports and wagers, but it goes a step further by also offering content from various news sources and entertainment channels. Developed by an American company named Red Ventures, BetFoster is available for iOS and Android devices and attempts to simulate the experience of watching a live sports event, complete with real-time betting and analysis. And at a cost of £2.49 per month, it also provides users with a more premium experience, granting them access to additional features and content.
Which One Should You Choose?
Ultimately, which one of these apps you should choose depends on what you’re looking for. If you’re keen on traditional sports betting and have a mobile device with a capable enough processor, the Bwin, Bet365, and SportsBetting apps offer probably the most feature-rich experiences and the most platforms to choose from. With mobile phones getting faster and more advanced, processing power is no longer a limiting factor, making them ideal for use on the go.
If, however, your primary interest is in wagering on the next James Bond film or which celebrity will be the next to wed, the Prestige, Winner, and BetFoster apps may be a better fit. Not only do they offer a cleaner interface, but you can also use their platforms on desktop computers, which means you can place your bets from anywhere with an internet connection.
