Mobile Horse Betting
Horse Racing has been one of the most popular sports to bet on since betting began. In fact, the sport is so heavily indebted to the gambling industry that if you couldn’t bet on the sport then it likely wouldn’t get the coverage and exposure it does today. Taking the next step into the world of mobile betting sees mobile horse betting feature heavily on a number of betting apps.
It’s pretty easy to see why many mobile devices integrate horse racing into their apps. The popularity of the sport is almost unrivalled in the betting industry and it continues to grow. Many mobile betting apps have managed to integrate some of the widest selection of races from around the world making it an ideal place for all bettors.
As horse racing takes place at so many different venues on each day, the ability to access betting markets from within the course makes mobile horse betting an even bigger pull. No longer do you have to limit yourself to simply markets from that one meeting, but now enable yourself to access every market throughout any given day. Whilst the UK markets are already pretty much fully covered by most of the larger betting firms, the inclusion of meetings from across Europe and around the world has increased the exposure the sport now gets from the betting community.
BetVictor App Horse Racing Section
When first entering the horse racing section of the BetVictor app you will be greeted with races from three options. First you can see the upcoming races for that day; secondly you can see the races for tomorrow before finally accessing their Ante Post section. Races are generally from the UK and Ireland although they do cover races from the US, South Africa and France to accompany these.
Some of the higher profile meetings – usually within the UK – also come with live streaming of the races direct to your smartphone. These is a very handy feature for bettors on the go but it’s important to remember that there is a delay of up to 30 seconds on these streams making in-play betting almost impossible.
PaddyPower App Horse Racing Section
The Paddy Power betting app is another that holds a large tie to that of horse racing. In fact, we would think that behind football, it’s their biggest grossing sport in terms of betting. The betting app itself has a host of features including a wealth of markets from around the world and their live streaming section. To view the races all you need to do is to have placed a wager of £1 or more on that specific race. Races which are held live will have a ‘Watch Now’ button next to their market.
The most impressive thing about their app is the simplicity in how it works. It doesn’t bombard you with information; it simply lets you know which horses are racing and the price. This does however work both ways, and if you are looking for a horse racing resource as well, then you may want to look elsewhere.
SkyBet App Horse Racing Section
SkyBet have probably made the biggest strides within the mobile betting industry over the last few years. Their original attempt at a betting app was poor to say the least, but now they boast a slick and plentiful betting app. One of the markets at the spearhead of their re-vamp was that of horse racing. Very much an important sport for SkyBet, their horse racing section works and functions like very few within the industry.
A section we particularly enjoyed was their mobile horse betting specials page. Whilst it is a bit more of a novelty feature, it allows for you to bet on a number of markets than many other bookmakers simply don’t offer. These might range from a mixture of winning doubles, possible racing scenarios and even more trivial thing such as what colour will the queens hat be at Royal Ascot.
