The days of only being able to place wagers with your local betting shops are long gone. Two major innovations have changed all of that. First, the arrival of the internet and online gambling sites, then the advancements in mobile technology and laptops/tablets. Now using mobile apps is the preferred way to place your bets.

It used to be so frustrating when your local bookmaker closed their shops. If you had missed placing that potentially winning bet, then that was that. Now it’s a totally different story, one we couldn’t have imagined many years ago.

The internet began this change with bookmakers and sports betting operators now having online sites. These are available 24/7 with no closed sign ever appearing. It’s the content of these sites that makes being able to play it on your mobile so important. Many states in the US now allow sports betting so it should come as no surprise most gambling fans choose to do this on their mobile.

These sites cover matches from all over the globe. That means there are betting opportunities available at all times of the day and night. You can be betting on games in the USA overnight, that’s if you can still stay awake after all those bets made on European and Asian games during the morning, afternoon, and evening.

There is also plenty of in-play betting, so you can follow all the actions and be placing bets on the events as they happen. With all these betting opportunities available, you just won’t want to miss anything. That’s why being able to play on your mobiles is so important. 

At some point of the day, you will need to go out. With the mobile app downloaded, an internet connection can allow you to carry on betting just as if you were at home.

Most online gambling sites and sportsbooks now have some form of mobile betting app. These are free to download, and the sites will give you all the information you need to obtain them. Sites that don’t have an app tend to have a mobile version of their site so you can just access that.

The mobile apps will allow you to do all that you can on the desktop site. You can navigate around it and access all the live games being covered. This allows you to be able to check how your bets are getting on, hopefully well. 

With there being in-play coverage, you can place more bets on your selection if they are doing well. If they are having problems, you can always try and rescue the situation by placing some bets on the opposition.

You will also be able to make financial transactions using the mobile app. This can see you either withdrawing some winnings or depositing some more cash if needs be. Just ensure you gamble responsibly and don’t use the money you can’t afford to lose. 

There are so many mobile apps available, so it is important to register with the best out there. At the same time, it is vital that you avoid the ones that aren’t so good. According to gamble-USA, DraftKings is the number 1 rated app for sports bettors in the US.

Choosing the right mobile is of course also important. Mobile technology has advanced so much in recent years and will continue to do so. You will need a mobile device that allows you to see absolutely everything clearly (We can highly recommend the Galaxy S21 Ultra). It’s not helpful to mistake one odd for another or even place a bet on the wrong team. Not having a mobile device that will have the screen freeze is imperative. That’s not just because of the frustration of it happening but the fact your mobile apps will allow you to watch sporting events.

As you can see, there are many reasons why mobile apps are the preferred way to bet. How can you not like being able to bet on live sporting events and able to watch them at the same time while out and about?
