Can I Create An Account From The Bookmaker App?

Yes, you can register a new account using most betting mobile apps. Betway, for instance, allows you to create your account and make funds transfers using your online betting app.

How Do I Claim A Welcome Bonus From The App?

Firstly, make sure the terms of a welcome bonus don’t state that qualification can only come from the desktop site.It is possible to qualify for a welcome bonus using online betting. We’ll use Betway for this example.

  • Once you’ve understood the terms and conditions, click on Deposit Now.
  • Then, you can start meeting the requirements to claim your offer.

How Do I Download The iPhone/Android App?

The easiest way to download an app is to visit the bookmaker site via your mobile device. For Android users, this is the only way you’ll be able to download the betting app. Hit the Android icon and your download will begin. You will need to tick the Unknown Sources box to allow the installation.Once the .apk file has been downloaded, you can install the app.IOS users can follow the above, or head to the App Store and download from there.

Is The Mobile App Better Than The Site?

This depends entirely on the bookmaker. Many bookmaker sites aren’t optimised for mobile use. A dedicated app is, of course, designed entirely for use on mobile, and so can run much more smoothly than visiting the site itself. Mobile apps can also be more convenient than visiting betting shops.

Are The Odds The Same In The App?

All odds will be the same in the mobile app as they are on the desktop or mobile site. What the app gives you are ease and simplicity. There are also occasions when app-only promotions become available.
