SportingBet Mobile App Review
SportingBet are a well-established betting site that began back in 1997, which means they have a huge amount of experience under their belts. Although they might be a traditional bookmaker that are ageing, they are still keeping up with the times and the trends within the betting industry. One way they have done this is by introducing an excellent mobile betting app for customers to enjoy. This betting app can be downloaded across a range of mobile devices and will allow you to access your betting account anywhere, on the go, instead of having to travel to the nearest betting shop or possibly having to find a desktop computer to access the betting website. Instead you could simply pull out your smartphone and conveniently start betting. The betting market is now predominantly on mobile; therefore, it is important for customers to either create a well optimised mobile app, or even still, just make their betting website optimised so that there is a mobile site version.
In this review, we will take a look into the different app features that are on offer to customers at SportingBet and we will see how this app compares to competitors.
Mobile App Features:
Here are the features of the SportingBet mobile betting app that customers can experience. These app features can improve your overall betting experience and offer you something that other betting apps are not able to do.
The SportingBet app is slick and clean. It looks very professional and the theme of the betting website, has been replicated onto the betting app itself so that it is easy for customers to get used to it. That sky-blue theme is what we notice instantly about SportingBet and they have kept this throughout their app.
The app is well laid out. There is a menu hub, and also parts of the site are put into tabs, so that you can easily move across pages. There is also a search bar tab, that will allow you to locate any market that you want.
The app also operates on a smooth app software, which means that the pages load with ease and odds are updated frequently, this makes betting on the app more efficient and enjoyable. It also helps betting markets such as in-play and cashing out, which we will discuss further on. A decent app software will stop the app from freezing or crashing, which can often be the case with some betting apps if there are too many people accessing it at once. If the app crashes, then you will not be able to place your bets.
Welcome Bonus & Promotions:
SportingBet have a number of different promotions that customers can claim in regards to their sportsbook. They do not offer a huge range that beats all of their competitors, but they do offer some very inviting bonuses. The betting bonuses will improve your betting experience, as you can use them on the range of sporting markets at SportingBet.
Starting off with the welcome bonus that customers can get their hands on, SportingBet are offering a £10 Backup bet, this is a moneyback bet if your first bet loses. This will allow you to make your first bet risk free when you sign up. Although this is not the most rewarding welcome bonus that we have come across, it is definitely worth considering as you can either win from your first bet, or not lose anything.
Other promotions that customers can get their hands on at SportingBet include: Acca Boost, Best Odds Guaranteed, Acca Insurance, Racing Multi-Boost and Enhanced Accas.
The in-play market is a unique market that offers a lot of excitement. Betting in-play means that you predict what you think will happen next in a betting fixture, whilst it is underway. If we use football for example, you may decide to predict the next goal scorer of a game. Bookmakers can get really innovative in this market as there are endless predictions to make.
If you click on the Live Betting tab on the sportsbook, you will see a list of different sports across the top that you are able to bet live on, then under this are the fixtures that you can bet live on in relation to the sports. Click on a fixture and then view the live markets within these sports.
SportingBet also offer a live streaming service on certain events. This means that you are able to place a bet on a fixture and then watch it live. It makes it more enjoyable. This typically applies to horse racing, where you are able to bet on a horse and then watch them race. It is beneficial for if you are on the go and cannot sit and watch the race on your TV, so you decide to stream it through the app whilst carrying on with your day.
Cash Out Feature:
Like most betting apps, SportingBet has a cash out feature. This cash out feature is going to allow you to take some money away and cancel your bet, before it has reached its natural conclusion. SportingBet have a fast loading interface so the cash out odds are loaded fast and frequently. The more likely the bet is to be successful, the higher the cash out value. Of course, this can be beneficial if you cash out and your bet lost, however it might not be so beneficial if you cash out and the bet won.
How to Download:
It is very simple and easy to download the official SportingBet app. SportingBet is a betting site that has a mobile version, so alternatively you can use a web browser to access the site. However, it would be much easier to use the betting app.
If you are using an iOS device, then head over to the iOS app store and locate the SportingBet app using the search tool. Once you have found it, download it for free. You can now log in and use the app, accessing all the features that SportingBet have to offer.
The same rules apply for Android. All you need to do is head to the Google Play Store and search for the SportingBet app. Once downloaded, log in and play. You can also save your log in details so that you will not have to re-enter them all the time you want to log in.
To conclude our thoughts on the SportingBet app, it is an excellent betting app that functions well and offers unique features. It is not the best betting app we have come across in terms of bonuses, but in all other aspects, it seriously does not lack against competitors. Fore example they even offer a live streaming service. If you like the look of SportingBet then why not register with them today and download the free app.
