How to bet with Apps

10bet mobile home page pictureEveryone has a smartphone these days. Whether it’s an Apple or Android device, a gateway to the internet is just a tap away, with many people no longer using a personal computer or laptop when it comes to accessing the world wide web.

Naturally, this applies when it comes to placing bets online. After all, why log on to a computer and visit a betting website when you can simply load up the site or bookmaker app on your phone?

Betting on your mobile phone is a pretty straightforward process. You simply need a strong connection through 3G or 4G or alternatively, safe and secure Wi-Fi access to make sure that you can place all bets without any connection being lost.

So you have your mobile phone and your internet access. Now you have to decide on which bookmaker to visit and we have a handy guide available so that you get the correct welcome bonus and find an operator that meets your betting needs.

Many bookmakers will have a landing page for first-time visitors which explains their new customer bonus so that you can go ahead and claim the offer. It is usually a free bet which involves making a first deposit and then the first bet. Once this qualifying bet has been settled, then you will automatically find a free bet waiting for you in your account.

So the first thing to do is register on your mobile phone and every bookmaker will make sure that the personal details submitted are secure. The same applies when it comes to registering card details, with most customers using a debit card when making a deposit. Alternatively, there are other forms of payment including PayPal, Skrill and Neteller.

After you’ve set up a payment method on your betting account, then you are now ready to place a bet! At this stage, you can take the option to download the betting app on your phone should you wish to take this path. A betting app will resemble the mobile bookmaker site with the same features.

Many betting apps will also recognise your log-in details once you have registered and logged in for the first time, while the stored payment details mean you can be placing a bet within a few seconds.

On a mobile betting website, you should then see a homepage featuring the main sports and upcoming betting markets. They are provided so that you can easily place a bet from one of the popular selections, although there is also the chance to access a menu (usually in the top left-hand corner) where you can choose from a range of sports.


So you might be looking to place a bet on the Arsenal v Tottenham match. It would be a case of selecting Football and then Premier League where the mobile betting site would then display a list of available matches and there is also the option to place an accumulator bet with various teams. However, for a match market like Arsenal v Tottenham, it’s a simple case of pressing on the fixture in question and you can see a multitude of available betting options to select.

When it comes to In-Play betting, then mobile usage is even more common. This could be people watching a match at a stadium, in the pub or even at home. It’s very easy to get a mobile phone out of your pocket and access the latest odds before betting on your mobile phone.

With In-Play odds, then the prices will change on a constant basis and many people like the excitement that this type of betting provides. Similarly, there is often live streaming available on a wide range of sporting events and this will allow customers to watch the event while they’re betting on it.


Football and tennis are two particular sports which are covered from a live streaming point-of-view when it comes to mobile bookies. So you could use your mobile phone to watch live streaming of these sports every day if you wanted to. However, make sure your phone is fully charged as this will use more battery life than simply betting on matches.

You can use your mobile phone to access customer services too. The live chat functionality is available on most bookmaker mobile sites and it’s naturally easier to use your phone to call customer services when using a betting site.

Withdrawing any winnings works in exactly the same way as depositing apart from the fact that the money is going back to your betting account. You need to use the same payment method used for depositing in order to withdraw any cash.

Several bookmakers now offer a Cash Out facility which means that you can bet on your mobile betting site and not necessarily need to find winners. Simply having a bet where the odds shorten will see you often given a cash out value and it’s great to sometimes take a profit.

As with betting on your desktop and laptop, it makes sense to check that your bets have been confirmed as there is often a holding page when you make a selection and choose your stake size. The confirmation page and a refresh of the balance should show you that the bet has gone through.

Horse racing fans will find mobile betting a good way of being able to place a quick bet before the off, while several bookmakers also live stream the action through their deals with Racing UK or At The Races. If you’re really lucky, you should also be able to get Best Odds Guaranteed or Best Odds Guaranteed Plus!

There are also stats and results available, along with form guides so that you can be as informed as possible before you go ahead and place your racing bets. Several bookmaker mobile sites also include the horse information including number, silks and jockey.
