Sportsbet Android App Review – the best layout available?
Sportsbet have created a very impressive app that functions excellently and loads quickly. We think it provides the easiest to read layout, making it easy to find the race or game you want. The app has been designed in line with the website, and it has a very similar feel, being visually stimulating without losing any functionality due to a cluttered screen. It undergoes regular upgrades to ensure that all of its content is bang up to date. Importantly, it is also not excessively draining on resources or on your smartphone’s battery. The lively colour scheme is attractive and helps users to find the markets that they are looking for. It also has a helpful landing screen which shows the next 6 races and the upcoming 6 sports markets to begin so that punters who are short of time can place a bet as rapidly as possible. The app also has a very comprehensive help section which allows users to quickly and easily find the information that they are looking for thanks to the helpful search feature.
When compared to other bookmakers, Sportsbet’s average margin is a little higher, standing at 5.2%, well above the median of 4.9%. However during the build up to events these margins are reduced. In futures markets, Sportsbet is more competitive. Its average margin in these events is 14.7%, lower than the median of 16.2%.
The greatest strength of the Sportsbet app is its impressive range of Australian sports markets, each of which boasts an excellent depth of betting options on every fixture. Punters who enjoy Super Rugby, AFL and NRL will find around 40 markets to choose from for each fixture, and those who prefer international sports will also not be disappointed thanks to the broad spectrum of additional markets like handball, volleyball, golf, American sports and cycling. As you might expect, soccer is exceptionally well covered, and around 100 soccer markets are covered across 100 different leagues. There are also some unusual betting options available for those who like to take a punt on novelty events, including basic politics, finance and entertainment options.
Sportsbet’s Australian horse racing markets cover events across New Zealand, Australia, Asia and the Americas. There is a choice of Trifectas, Quinellas, SP, Top Fluc, Fixed Odds, Country Best and City Best on thoroughbred racing while greyhound and harness racing are both paid at Home Tote. There are also super exotic bets available on the majority of days including Double, Treble, Quaddie and Super6. Form guides are supplied on every race to help punters make an informed decision. On selected tracks, customers can also take advantage of Daily Doubles and Running Doubles, with Flexi Betting available on all doubles wagers to improve the likelihood of picking a winning combo. Unfortunately, live betting is not possible for Australian punters due to current legislation and any live bets must now be placed via telephone.
One of the best features of the Sportsbet mobile app is its impressive selection of withdrawal and deposit options which covers all bases. While some other bookmakers only offer the basic traditional methods, Sportsbet have thought about accommodating the needs of a wide range of customers and have provided not only traditional options like bank transfer and credit cards but also contemporary and popular e-Wallet options such as PayPal and Skrill. BPAY and POLi are also available. Withdrawals can be activated either via bank transfer or through PayPal, which is a quick and convenient alternative that is sure to appeal to punters. There is a very low minimum deposit limit set on accounts of just $5 and the minimum wager is incredibly low at just $0.01, making this a great choice of app for beginners who are not yet ready to commit a large amount of funds to their account. Sportsbet also offers credit facilities, and punters can apply for up to $5,000 of credit. An automatic credit facility of up to $200 may be arranged automatically at Sportsbet’s discretion.
Overall, the Sportsbet Android app offers a very good betting service, especially for beginner and intermediate punters. The app’s interface is appealing and easily accessible, being intuitive and user friendly enough to accommodate the needs of even novices. The help section offers useful advice while the extensive range of markets, especially for those who prefer horse racing events and domestic sports, will appeal to a broad range of punters. Another huge advantage is the great choice of deposit methods and the ability to withdraw winnings via PayPal rather than simply relying on the old fashioned bank transfer option. The low deposit levels and minimum wager amounts makes this an especially appealing app for newcomers to betting, however one downside is the higher than average bookmaker’s margin which may be off-putting to those who are looking to maximise their profits.
