In recent years, the rise in popularity of betting on sports has grown significantly. And, combined with the continual progression of technology and growing expectation for business to have easy-to-use apps available on mobiles, betting apps – the likes of which didn’t exist just a few short years ago – are now available with virtually every major bookmaker. For many punters, these have overtaken the desktop sites as the easiest way to bet, and as a result a good mobile app is pivotal for betting sites looking to be competitive in a market with plenty of competition. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the top betting apps that you must have on your mobile.
Though it’s not exactly the oldest bookmaker around, PlayUp has quickly made a name for itself in the betting industry, and a high-quality betting app is just one of the reasons why. This app is quick and very easy to use, making it simple to access this bookie’s wide range of markets and excellent odds. And, with the 2022 FIFA World Cup set to begin in November, the excellent selection of markets on this event available with PlayUp makes this one of the best World Cup betting apps you’ll find.
TopSport has been around since the beginning in betting industry terms, having been established towards the end of last century, and while they haven’t typically been as well-known as some of the biggest agencies in the industry, they do have a very high-quality mobile app. They’ve got competitive odds on racing in particular and are known for their excellent website, something which has transferred into the usability of their mobile app.
As one of the biggest bookmakers on the planet, if not the biggest, it’s no surprise to see Bet365 on this list. Like their website, their app is a really good one – fast, easy to navigate, and providing access to their unmatched range of markets and excellent odds. This aesthetically pleasing app is available to download from your preferred app store or the Bet365 website, and makes it easy to access everything that Bet365 provides while you’re on the go.
You might not know the name BoomBet, but that’s not necessarily an indication of a lack of popularity. This bookie has actually been around for over 20 years but for much of that was known as SportsBetting, only recently rebranding to BoomBet. And, along with their new name, they’ve also got a new app that excels in its functionality. There are no fancy extras that come with this betting app – instead, it provides what it needs to provide, and does it to a high level, rarely suffering from the lags or unexpected closures which are so prevalent with some of its counterparts.
Palmerbet has long been a part of the Australian betting landscape, but while it doesn’t have the same recognition of some of its equally experienced counterparts, it probably should. They offer plenty of markets and great odds, all of which can be accessed easily on their high-quality mobile app. The usability on this betting app is second to none, making it simple to access all the great features of this experienced and reliable bookmaker.
Unibet is another global bookmaking giant which has made waves on Australian shores since making the trek down under. They have a lot of great features, most notably their almost unmatchable odds, though their website can at times leave a little to be desired. That just serves to make their app even more desirable. The lagging which can be a cause of much frustration on their website is relatively absent on the app, making this a great way to get access to their huge range of markets and terrific odds.
BlueBet is a 100% Australian owned bookmaker with a relatively loyal army of followers, and it has a great mobile app to boot. This app is particularly easy to use, with an intuitive layout which makes it easy to find the markets that you’re looking for. You can also access all the other features of the desktop website, including customer support, deposits and withdrawals and more. This app makes it easy to bet with BlueBet on the go.
TexBet is a new betting site, having only launched in 2020, but they do have plenty of experience behind them given their founders have been in the industry for decades. And their app boasts every bit of the quality that you would expect from a more experienced bookmaker, making it easy to use TexBet on your mobile rather than needing to jump on your computer. This easy-to-use app importantly allows you to access some of TexBet’s more notable features, including live streaming of international races and Same Game Multis.
Picklebet is one of the more unique betting sites going around, with its focus on the growing realm of esports. And, for lovers of that niche, the Picklebet app is a useful tool with which to bet on it. For a time Picklebet didn’t have one available and were falling behind their competitors in that regard, but they have relatively recently released one for iOS, and it’s a good one. It’s easy to navigate and rarely if ever has any issues, making this a great way to bet on esports on the go.
Rounding out our list of the top ten betting apps is RealBookie, a site which launched just a couple of years ago in 2020. This is a site which still has plenty of room for growth, but one of their best features is their mobile app. Available for both iOS and Android, the RealBookie app loads very quickly and makes it easy to navigate through their range of markets. Given this is a relatively small bookmaker they could perhaps have been forgiven for not having a particularly functional app, but instead they’ve clearly made it a focus, and it’s one of their standout features as a result.
With betting apps becoming an increasingly popular way for punters to place bets, it’s pivotal for bookmakers to offer one which makes it easy for their customers to do just that, or they risk falling behind their competitors. The above ten betting sites offer some of the best betting apps in the business, with each of them enabling punters to easily access their markets and place bets while on the go.
