Typically just 24 hours after posting my ‘Top 5 Sports Betting Apps‘ blog, I discover another app well worthy of top place!
As we all know, to stay under the bookies radar as a pro-punter you ideally need a few accounts; some bookies offer apps to download which does help make life slightly easier. However, managing several different accounts and apps all at once can get confusing and annoying.
So, my latest discovery is a single app that integrates all your accounts….
I downloaded the AppBet app (available on both iOS and Android). The app allows you to combine your accounts from a number of top bookies such as Paddy Power, William Hill, Sky Bet, and more. The app is free and allows you to deposit funds to use with each bookmaker you have an account with. Placing bets is just as easy as with an individual bookmakers account. But the benefit is that you can keep all your accounts in one place. I downloaded the app to try it out and see if it provides the simple solution it claims to.
At first look, the AppBet app is easy to use. Integrating individual accounts from different bookmakers is simple. It doesn’t take much time at all. The app is clean in its design, so there’s no confusion on how to get everything set up. You can even set up new accounts from the app. If you don’t already have any betting accounts, you can create one or more in only a few seconds. This feature is particularly useful because you don’t need to navigate away from the app to start betting with a different bookie. You can place bets with each of your accounts within the app too.
One of the best features is that you can compare odds from the app. Odds are displayed in real-time, so there are always accurate numbers to compare. There’s no need to go looking at lots of different websites and refreshing pages. I found this really useful. Even though you can use comparison sites from your PC, you can’t always conveniently place your bet from there. AppBet allows you to make your bet from the same place you find out the odds. It’s really easy to see the odds from different bookmakers in a list on the app. You can look at upcoming events for the next couple of days for accurate numbers.
When it comes to depositing funds, you can add money to each of your betting accounts individually. I found it useful to be able to see the balance on each account, listed one after the other. You don’t need to leave the app to top up your funds on any of your accounts. You can register a card with AppBet and deposit funds into any account straight from the app. They make it clear that everything is safe and secure. This is always reassuring when giving anyone your card details. If you want to withdraw funds, you can do that directly from the app too. However, sometimes it’s not allowed, especially if you have a different card registered with the bookmaker.
I found that placing a bet with AppBet couldn’t be simpler, just as they promise. All you have to do is pick a sport, then an event. You can look at the odds from each bookie, choose the best one and enter the amount to bet. Betting is in real-time, which means that AppBet also cover in-play action. This was easy and straightforward to use, and you get the latest odds at all times. Of course, there is a slight delay of a few seconds, but that’s the same as any other app. Placing an accumulator bet is also simple. You are given the odds comparison so you can choose the best one, just like with other bets. The app’s acca search technology allows for building your own within the app. You just have to add selections to your basket and then choose the type of multiple. The app displays the best prices, which makes it easy to pick one.
When you place a bet, the app shows your total stake and the potential returns if you win. You get a screen to confirm or cancel your bet to make sure that you want to go ahead. The whole process is quick, however, which is ideal for getting a bet on when you only have a couple of minutes to spare. There are also special offers and promotions that you can take advantage of within the app. These are great because you don’t miss out by not using the bookmakers’ own apps.
It’s reassuring to see that the app is secure. Payment information and personal details are encrypted to guarantee security. It’s also easy to contact AppBet if any issues come up. Another great feature is that you can place limits on how much you spend. Even when you’re a responsible gambler, it can be easy to get carried away. Being able to restrict how much you spend in the app means you can set a limit for all your accounts. You can easily look at any bets you have placed with a summary of bets from each bookmaker.
If you download the app, you can also get the chance to win football or horse racing tickets. Enter the promo code BGD11 when you register, and you will be entered into a draw. You can find out more about AppBet on their website or Twitter at https://twitter.com/theappbet.
The app is available on both iOS and Android, which means you can download it to almost any smartphone. Overall, it is useful for managing multiple betting accounts. Personally I find it more convenient than having to switch between different accounts and it’ll be on my phone for quite some time!
