Guide to Betting Apps
It’s fair to say smartphones, tablets and mobile devices are now as synonymous with British society as rainy days, pub quizzes and milky tea. Small wonder then that so many betting companies with an online presence have rushed to develop gambling-related apps over the past five or so years. These handy gizmos – available for iOS, Android, Windows phones, other mobiles and tablets – have become hugely popular, as they enable on-the-go punters to enjoy immediate, high-quality gambling experiences wherever and whenever they like.
Here’s a quick heads-up on what you need to know about today’s all-singing, all-dancing betting apps:
Popular Features of the Best Betting Apps
Though betting apps all differ in what they offer, there are some features which, due to their popularity, are typically found across the board. For instance, enhanced odds and live in-play betting are big hits with punters with a soft spot for sports betting apps. Cash-in and partial cash-in features have become particularly popular, as they enable punters to control their bets in-play, letting them choose whether or not they should stick with their initial bet or take the money and run. Live streaming is another feature with a big following. In a similar vein, many online casino fans consider virtual gaming and live dealer options, now offered by all but the most modest casino gambling apps, to be ‘must-have’ features.
What Types of Betting Apps are There?
Sports betting apps
Arguably the most popular betting apps of all in the UK, these apps come in all shapes and sizes, providing a wide variety of options to suit the wants and needs of practically every punter with a penchant for sportsbooks. As well as providing a 'one-stop-shop' for a multitude of different sports, many online bookmakers also provide dedicated betting apps for individual sports like football, cricket, horse racing, tennis and golf.
With many software developers now providing platforms offering fully immersive gameplay, it’s easy to see why casino apps are an ever-increasing favourite among on-the-go bettors. Similar to sports betting apps, these offerings afford gamblers plenty in the way of choice, with various versions of popular casino games like roulette, blackjack and even bingo on hand.
Although slots are frequently available within casino apps, they're now so popular that betting companies often provide their own dedicated apps. The number of games available can be considerable, with some apps having as many as 400-500 slots. This, coupled with the winning trend of flashy visuals and fun themes, makes slot apps a fave with gamblers from all walks of life.
Another casino game which gets dedicated app coverage is poker, arguably the most popular card game in the gambling world. Along with a range of game variations like Texas Hold ‘em, Omaha, and Seven-Card Stud, many of today’s poker apps deliver engrossing live dealer options which make the action even more exciting.
What’s The Best Betting App for You?
There are of course a number of things punters need to mull over when considering the all-important question: “what’s the best betting app?”:
The single most important aspect to keep in mind is whether or not the app is being offered by a trusted source. While apps provided by well-known brand names are pretty much guaranteed to deliver the goods in a safe and trustworthy manner, offerings from less well-known companies shouldn't be trusted on appearances alone. If in doubt, always check to see if an app is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission.
Number of games/events
If you like to chop and change when gambling online then you’ll need to make sure the app you settle on affords a wide choice of games, markets or events to choose from. Some apps, even those which purport to be ‘one-stop-shops’, don’t always offer a swathe of options, so it’s well worth checking out exactly what is (and isn’t) available before hitting download.
Bonuses and promotions
While the bonuses and/or promotions offered by a gambling app aren't a direct indication of how good it is, they’re certainly something savvy punters should keep in mind when choosing a betting app. For sure, some apps these days offer very generous deals indeed, particularly to new players, so it’s definitely worth shopping around to see what’s available.
It’s all about the money, right? After all, the reason we play these apps is to win, and hopefully, win big. However, the joy of hitting a jackpot is likely to be severely dented if you find out the payouts on your new app are limited, or that withdrawal times are slow. Reading up on these vital aspects beforehand will help to keep this special kind of hell at bay.
Why Online Betting Apps are Popular
With so many of us now using smartphones to organise every aspect of our lives, the popularity of online betting apps can be summed up in with one word – convenience. Bricks-and-mortar casinos and bookmakers are still as popular as ever, but let’s be frank; firing up an app on a smartphone or tablet is much easier – and far less time consuming – than visiting your local bookie or nearest casino (which may well be miles away). And, when you put this in the context of the busy lifestyle most of us lead these days, it’s easy to see why more punters than ever are turning to online apps to get their gambling fix.
