Fluidity and ergonomics
In terms of optimizing for use on smartphones or tablets, not all applications are the same. Some sports betting applications are easy to use and provide a quality alternative to sports betting sites, while others make the experience less pleasant and give the impression of an unfinished application where navigation and usage are not optimized for ease of use.
The game modes offered
Bookmakers try to stand out from each other by offering more playful and inventive game modes. During our tests of sports betting applications, we analyze the different challenges and functionalities offered on mobile applications. Whether it is the Cash-Out feature that allows you to minimize your losses or the combined betting grids, we dissect everything in the Fantasy League.
The odds heights
This is one of the main concerns of sports bettors, since the odds offered by a sports betting bookmaker define the possible winnings for the players. Not all sports betting applications offer the same odds heights and it is important to analyze the trend of a sports betting operator in terms of the odds it offers to bettors with its smartphone or tablet application.
The catalog of sports and types of bets offered
In our tests of the various sports betting applications, we take a close look at the number of sports on offer, as well as the number of championships and tournaments on which it is possible to place bets via the applications. We also study in detail the types of bets that can be made on each sports event.
The live streaming function
Many bookmakers offer live video services to track the progress of live bets. We analyze these to see what each sports betting application has to offer online betting fans. Some sports betting applications do not offer live match viewing, but do offer 3D animations or match summaries to allow you to track the progress of your sports bets.
Means of payment
The different payment methods offered by bookmakers via their mobile applications are crucial to consider when choosing a betting operator. It is important to know the different methods available to fund a player’s account, whether by credit card, e-wallet, prepaid card, etc. Some online betting operators offer the possibility of crediting the player’s account via PayPal, which represents a guarantee of security when you know how much the online wallet invests in security and data protection.
The security of the application
The security and reliability of sports betting applications is at the heart of their evaluation. Indeed, if bettors do not feel secure on a betting platform, they will naturally hesitate to make fund transfers. Some sports betting applications offer a fingerprint identification system for greater player account security. The official license issued by the ANJ is also a guarantee of security and reliability, because bookmakers must meet stringent criteria to qualify for it.
