Mobile Betting vs. Online Betting

For over a decade now sports bettors have been able to wager online using an online sportsbook. Most of you have probably made a wager with an online sportsbook at least once. In the past few years the mobile betting industry has been in a spotlight due to the increase in mobile users around the world. You may not have ever wagered with a mobile sportsbook, but it’s very similar to betting with an online sportsbook except for the fact that you don’t need to be near a computer to place a bet.

Online Betting

Signing up with an online sportsbook is extremely simple and placing a bet is very easy as long as you’re near a computer. In order to place a wager using an online sportsbook you actually need to be near a computer with an internet connection. If you’re not near a computer you won’t be able to place a bet on the game/event that you want to wager on.

Mobile Betting

There are quite a few mobile sportsbooks in the industry now and they’re going to help the sports betting market grow even more than it has since moving online. The ability to bet on sports from your mobile device is going to appeal to many bettors that are always on the run or busy working. You’re not always going to be near a computer and being able to bet on your mobile device will ensure that you never miss a wager that you want to make again.

Benefits of Mobile Betting

  • The biggest benefit is that bettors can place a wager anywhere they want as long as they have a working connection to the internet on their mobile device.
  • Mobile technology is becoming better with time and sportsbooks have been able to develop impressive betting apps that offer most of the betting markets a traditional online sportsbook offers. You’ll even be able to bet live on games using the in-play betting features available at a few of the mobile sportsbooks in the industry.
  • Generally you’re actually safer betting on your mobile device rather than online because the chance of having your mobile device compromised is much less likely than your computer becoming compromised. Security is important because the last thing you want is for your account to become compromised and betting on your mobile device is extremely safe.

In order to place a wager at a sportsbook you simply need to click on the team you want and confirm your bet. Betting on sports was made for mobile devices because you simply need to touch a few buttons on your screen to place a bet. The mobile gambling industry is going to continue to grow over the next few years and now is the perfect time to jump on board. The betting apps have become very impressive the past year and they’re only getting better with further development. In my opinion it won’t be long before the mobile betting market is bigger than the online betting market.
