Worst mobile betting sites in the UK

UK players have access to a number of highly regarded sports betting operators with an extensive experience in the gaming industry, but not all sites servicing UK punters offer a fair gaming experience. We now take a look at the mobile websites that you should definitely avoid, listing the reasons why they are on our blacklist.


RealBet does not offer dedicated mobile apps, but has rather adapted their main website for smartphone and tablet, but that is the least of their shortcomings. Established in 2015 and operating under the loose gambling regulations of Curacao, the sportsbook has been treating players without respect for quite a while now, as they take forever to process larger withdrawals, which is clearly an attempt to make the punters gamble away the money when they get tired of waiting.


12Bet is an Asian sportsbook that has a separate website for UK players, but even though they have been in business since 2001 and have been investing a lot in advertising campaigns of late, their reputation is less than impressive. The biggest complaints regard unfair bonus terms and confiscation of bonus cash and resulting winnings, although the company has been making attempts to improve their business dealings of late.


BetClic is another well-known gaming operator that has not been treating its customers with the respect they deserve. There have been numerous complaints from players who have had their winnings confiscated and accounts frozen, although some of those disputes have been successfully resolved. BetClic seems to have shown considerable improvement after acquiring a UK license and hopefully they will continue to change for the better.


Established in 2010, Betsafe is licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and while they are a famous name in the online gaming business, their behaviour towards players leaves a lot to be desired. A host of complaints have been filed against the sportsbook in recent years as gamers had their accounts locked, winnings confiscated and bets voided, and while there is a chance that some of those complaints were unfounded, it is clear that Betsafe has a lot of work to do if they want to improve their poor reputation.


LSbet has been online since 2013, and they have done very little to build a good rapport with the online gaming community. The company’s reputation has been getting worse every year as a number of players have had their winnings confiscated without doing anything wrong. There have been other issues involving LSbet such as accounts closed, winnings forfeited and unfair treatment, which gives us reason to believe that the operator holding a license in Curacao is not at all dedicated to offering fair and secure gaming experience.

These are obviously not the only betting sites that are bad for the players, so always make sure to go through bookmaker reviews and especially player experiences before signing up for an account or depositing money to an online sportsbook.
