It’s a popular hobby to gamble some extra cash on sports results. Betting on games have been around for centuries but now, the world’s largest betting exchange, Betfair, is upgrading the experience for a mobile era with its dedicated gambling app.
Betfair is everything you’d expect from an exchange betting app, but unlike other apps out there, how do I put it… the Betfair app doesn’t look creepy thanks to the ease of use and straight forward execution.
On start up, you’re given some disclaimers, asked to confirm your location and to sign in. After all that routine stuff, you have the homepage featuring some games, links to upcoming races and a list of the trending most-bet games.
There are still more ways to find games to gamble as these are arranged in Sports tab under about 30 different sporting events including football, cricket, the classic horse riding, golf, tennis, motor sport, basketball and rugby.
Look around and find your favorite sport. Choose a tournament, an event and a game and be ready to bet on your lucky man or team.
At the penultimate screen, you are given the stats for backing or laying a particular side. Tap on the side that shines for you, play around with the stakes and odds for sometime until you find your winning formula. The Place Bet button regularly updates to show your total bet amount and can be transferred with just a tap.
Not only the results of the match, but other milestones and achievements are also available to bet on. A regular football match has an average of a couple dozen different bets, in case you’re wondering.
You can track your placed bets and bet slips right within the app. After the match, your winnings or losses are calculated and you can cash out your balance, again with just a tap.
To be honest, I couldn’t try out the final steps of the betting process since BetFair’s functionality is only available in UK, but you shouldn’t have any problems going through with your bets if you’re in UK.
For all you betting geeks, here are a few stand-out features of the app:
– Cash Out your bets any time. Take your winnings or cut your losses? You decide
– Bet In-Play across a huge range of sports
– Place Multiple bets (between two and eight legs) even across sports
– Exclusive to Betfair: Now you can Cash Out your Horse Racing Multiples, in between races
– Take full control of your bets and positions on the go
– View live scores with auto-updates
Betfair app really stands out with its intuitive interface because of the stunning use of blacks and yellows in the UI and the transparency offered in the betting process. Betfair also provides the stats of previous matches, live scores and more, to help you take wiser decisions while betting. Once you have the right bet in mind, you can place it in just under a minute.
In the end, Betfair excels at what it provides and let’s you easily and legally place bets on sports. And with the great interface and Betfair’s long-earned trust in the industry, the Betfair app for iPhone should be everyone’s betting client.
Note that you can lose or gain real money with this app and that gambling can be addictive. User discretion is advised.
Betfair is authorized by the gambling Authority and is available only in the UK App Store.
