Some of the top sportsbooks have brought out mobile apps offering full sports betting functionality. However, due to lack of compatibility between the software used by different mobile phone manufacturers, sportsbooks have to offer different apps for different phones. Blackberry sports betting apps form one such category.

Best Blackberry Sports Betting Sites: 

There is no paucity of options when it comes to Blackberry sports betting sites. Major players from the industry, like Bet365, BetOnline, Bwin, Betfair, Bodog and Paddy Power, all offer impressive Blackberry sports betting apps.

Of these, BetOnline and Bodog even welcome US players. So irrespective of where you stay, there is a good chance that you’ll find a Blackberry sports betting sites offering complete account access, and allow you to view odds or place bets on the go. Two of the leading Blackberry sports betting sites are discussed below:

  • Paddy Power Blackberry Sports Betting: Paddy Power was the first sportsbook to offer a dedicated app for Blackberry devices. It offers the full range of events on the app, so you can bet on practically any event that you would have been able to bet on the full site. The sign up process for the app is quick and there are prominently placed buttons to help you access major events. New customers at Paddy Power can receive a 100% up to £50 bonus too.
  • William Hill Blackberry Sports Betting: William Hill is another major force in the sports betting industry and it has brought this dominance to the mobile world too. Its blackberry sports betting app allows you to access a huge variety of sporting events from across the world. One great feature of the William Hill Blackberry app is that you get access to live betting. There are hundreds of events that you can bet on while the event is going on, plus new customers will receive a nice deposit welcome bonus for mobile customers.

About Mobile Sports Betting on the Blackberry

Blackberry handsets are owned by a large number of people worldwide, especially young professionals, who are also one of the major target market segments for sportsbooks. These handsets are known for their reliability and robustness. This advantage is leveraged by blackberry sports betting apps, as you are assured of a secure and reliable betting experience using these apps.  I think the only downside to sports betting on a Blackberry is that the screen is a lot smaller than the 7-inch iPhone and Android screen (arguably making mobile betting easier on these devices),

How to Go About it

Like most smartphones, Blackberry handsets are easy to use. However, filling up long forms or navigating through the registration process can be somewhat tedious on the handset. That is why it is recommended that you register on the site using your computer. Once the registration is complete, you can start using the sportsbook on your Blackberry by providing your login information.

What to consider when choosing a Blackberry Sports Betting Site

Ideally, the site should have an excellent reputation, with numerous offers for new customers and cover a number of sports and events. The higher the number of events the site has, the more are your options for placing bets. It’s best to bet on a mobile sportsbook that features events from as many countries as possible – however if you’re from the UK then I recommend signing up to one of the major UK bookmakers such as Bet365, William Hill, Betfair or Victor Chandler.

The site should also have a wide range of sports betting options that you can access from your Blackberry.   And the site should provide simple instructions for downloading the app onto your Blackberry and logging into your account.  You should be able to place back bets, access your account, place bets in the in-play markets, and be able to take advantage of the regular sports betting bonuses for website customers on your mobile.

Remember that in-play betting is increasingly becoming more popular too (I think it now makes up 25%+ of most bookmaker’s betting revenue), so you need to make sure you can easily access these markets on your mobile device.  With an in-play betting option, you will get to place bets on the basis of how a game proceeds, which means you can place bets on your mobile whilst your at the match itself.
