We all love betting, don’t we? But, the one thing that is better than betting at home, is betting on the move. Thanks to mobile technology we are faced with two avenues; mobile betting on sites and betting on mobile via apps.
You may not recognise them from their name, but you’ll most certainly be familiar with their lion emblazoned logo. When you land on the LeoVegas mobile betting site, it’ll instantly give you the option to download the app with a widget at the top of the screen. For the meantime, we’ll focus on the mobile browser betting though.
One thing which is instantly more of a convenience is that you have everything grouped together in one place. Want to have a flutter on casino or live casino, then place a bet on the football? You can easily! With the app you may get confused by the two separate versions available for download, however, the good thing is that they contain all three markets; casino, live casino and sports.
The best thing about the LeoVegas app and the mobile betting site is also the thing which many are likely to hold against it. It doesn’t really look and feel like a betting app, or, site. So why is that good? Because it isn’t cluttered with odds and markets, everything is set out in a tidy fashion which leaves the experience feeling extremely simplistic.
On the flipside this ease of use is also one of the disadvantages to the mobile site, as, it affords the luxury of perhaps spreading out content too thinly meaning there are pages which, maybe, don’t even need to be there. The app meanwhile doesn’t suffer this issue.
The other key disadvantage to both the mobile site and the app is that they don’t support live streaming.
If you want a betting mobile site or app with bells and whistles on it that don’t bring anything further to the app, this won’t be for you. If you are looking for one which delivers ease of use and a great interface, look no further.
The ladies and gentleman at 888sport have obviously worked very hard to have a mobile optimised betting site as identical to their betting apps as possible. And you know what? They’ve done it remarkably well.
The menus and sub menus across both are so well labelled and laid out that it would be impossible to miss the market you were looking for. What is also handy considering this is all about betting on the go is that both interfaces also list the ‘live right now’ and ‘starting soon’ markets.
The one takeaway difference from the 888sport app and mobile betting site is that the app is so much better optimised for handling live streaming.
Right, straight away, let me say that we think the way the Betway mobile site divvies out your journey dependent on what you want. Yes, the landing page will give you the option of going to the standalone site for Sports, Casino, Vegas or eSports. Each with their own individual sportsbook and promotional pages.
This feature isn’t replicated in the app, instead they are all listed as a widget at the top which you can navigate through. While it’s good to have them all within one app, this can be slightly unresponsive at times. Don’t be fooled though, other than in this instance, the app is by far and away faster and more reliable than its mobile betting site counterpart.
One great thing about the mobile site is that, like the app, you don’t have to zoom-in or out to view the whole page. The whole mobile site is optimised so that everything is visible from that page, on your screens page.
This not only looks, but, it also feels like the best of the mobile betting sites we’ve touched on. Extremely slick and responsive it also offers you the chance to select your own sign-up offer (if you’re new) as well as downloading the app.
What it does do is trade in the fancy looking set-up for a more robust and capable betting site and app. This means you’re more likely to be able to bet better as you go, rather than chancing your betting on an app which may not be able to keep up.
Again, there is a clear mirroring of the app and the mobile site, which is all well and good, but do the performances match up? In a word, yes. One key benefit to using the app as well is that you can get a special feature called price rush – which at intervals takes some of the great prices from the Betfair Exchange on some single markets on the sportsbook.
Overall, it’s easy to see why the app is award winning! But don’t let that sway you into thinking that you can’t enjoy your betting through your mobile’s web browser.
