Mobile Sports Betting and Casino Gambling: Bookmaker Apps Overview
Predicting future trends is never an easy thing. However, one of the safest predictions that you can make is that the number of active internet users will always increase.
Few countries have given as clear an example of this trend as Nigeria. In 2019, the number of active Nigerian internet users was more than 113 million. It is predicted that by 2023, almost 9 out of 10 people in the country will browse the net and most of them will do it via a mobile device.
This trend has not gone unnoticed by bookmakers and casinos and they quickly embraced this new reality. Most of them promptly released top-of-the line mobile versions of their websites and dedicated apps to meet their customers’ needs, having functionality and top-notch performance always in mind.
1xBet Mobile App
The 1xBet mobile app is tailored so that it fits the user’s needs perfectly. It has all the features of the regular site and then some.
The app’s layout makes it possible for players to have instant access to the sports betting section. This is often easier said than done, but 1xBet’s app manages to flawlessly pack all of its betting events, live matches, and promotions in one super-practical betting product. All of these features can be accessed via the drop-down menu in the top left corner of the app and that saves players precious time and energy.
One of the best things about the app is that it retains the live streaming feature offered by the desktop version. This means that the mobile app is on par with 1xBet’s desktop site, but beats it in areas such as ease of access.
The 1xBet mobile app is available for both Android and iOS users. The easiest way of getting your hands on it is if you go to 1xBet’s official site and just download it from there.
Marathonbet Mobile App
The Marathonbet mobile app has received some rave reviews recently and for good reason. It enables players to directly go to the hottest live matches at any given moment, but also gives them a chance to leisurely browse through any event of their choosing.
The name of the game with the Marathonbet mobile app is simplicity. There is no clutter and no confusion, just a neat layout that is user-friendly and practical. Sure, some things from the full desktop site might be missing, but the app compensates for this with being straightforward to use.
The Marathonbet mobile app can be downloaded from the official Marathonbet website. The site provides direct links to the Play Store and App Store meaning both Android and Apple users can instantly download the app.
It should be noted that the mobile version of the Marathonbet site shares the same clean layout as the app. It has all the features the app offers and is compatible with mobile browsers such as Chrome, Safari, Opera and Yandex.Browser.
Betway Mobile App
The Maltese betting and gambling operator is one of the most reliable bookmakers in the industry and has an excellent mobile app to boot. Betway’s mobile product is designed with the idea of sports betting events being instantly available to customers and this is easy to see.
The app’s layout is actually a mirror image of the desktop site and it is commendable that none of Betway’s trademark features have been lost when creating the app. At the top of the screen are the recognizable sections of sports and live betting and Betway’s casino and live casino games are in the same location as they are on the full version of the site.
In addition to this, the app is very responsive and almost never lags. This is quite surprising considering the myriad of betting opportunities the app offers and the large amount of data it incorporates.
As with other mobile apps, the Betway mobile app can be downloaded from the official Betway website and is available to both Android and iOS users.
Nairabet Mobile App
Nigeria’s first sports bookmaker does not offer a mobile app just yet. However, they make up for this by offering their players two types of mobile versions of their website.
Nairabet’s ‘Full’ mobile version comes with all the features that you would be able to find at their computer accessed desktop site. Bets here can be made instantaneously despite the fact that this mobile version is packed-full of betting options, variants, stats and the like.
The ‘Lite’ version of Nairabet’s mobile site is more streamlined and shows only essential betting data. This version is ideal for punters who want to place their bets without too much fuss and don’t care much about colourful designs and distinctive layouts.
Bet9ja Mobile App
Bet9ja markets its app as the ideal companion for punters on the go. This is backed by the fact Bet9ja has always created popular mobile apps and both the old and the new Bet9ja mobile apps are held in high regard by Nigerian betting enthusiasts.
Bet9ja’s mobile app boasts a tidy and modern layout which is very easy on the eye. The position of sports events is very intuitive and betting propositions and odds are as clearly visible as you would want them to be.
The Bet9ja mobile app is currently only available to Android users who can download the .apk file onto their device from the official Bet9ja website. iOS users on the other hand, would have to settle for the mobile version of the site for now.
