Mobile Betting Apps Now Put Customers Closer to The Action

Placing a bet on horse racing or sports has never been easier thanks to the latest apps available on smartphones. The leading bookmakers have developed apps that are not only user-friendly but get their customers closer to the action.

Here is a look at how the latest betting apps offer much more than just sports betting.

Horse Racing Streaming

The way people consume their favourite sports is changing all the time, and that is no different in horse racing where bookmakers now offer streaming every day on the leading meetings. For example, those placing a bet on the Grand National with Paddy Power, where Corach Rambler is the 14/1 favourite in the horse racing betting, can watch the race in the firm’s app.

This streaming service is particularly popular during the Cheltenham Festival, the biggest week of the year in Jumps racing. You can place your Cheltenham Festival bets now on all 28 races of the meeting, including the Cheltenham Gold Cup where Galopin Des Champs is the evens favourite to defend his crown. Once the Festival begins, you can return to the app to watch every minute of the meeting.

Golf Shot Tracker

Even with live television coverage, golf is one of the trickiest sports to follow, as the field can often include 128 players spread across the 18 holes. One of the best ways of following your favourite players is through a shot tracker which is now available alongside golf betting in many of the leading betting apps.

After every shot your player makes, the ball is tracked on the hole. You can view the distance it travelled, where it landed and how far away it is from the hole. This information can be used to make a judgement on the in-play market, or you can just keep track of the players you have bet on.

With the formation of LIV golf which now has Jon Rahm on their roster, and weekly events on the European and PGA Tours, there is no shortage of tournaments across the calendar year in the sport to keep track of.

Darts and Snooker

Accurate live scoring is very important to live sports bettors, particularly in darts and snooker where every shot can have a huge impact on the odds. Sports betting apps now provide a live scoreboard that is updated in real time, with data coming from the scoring systems at the events.

The live scoring page includes important stats in darts such as the number of 180s by each player, their highest checkout score and a history of which player won each leg. These stats can help you get an idea of how the match is going if you have missed any of the action.

In snooker, stats are also very useful. The live scoring page tracks the break at the table, as it did during the 2023 UK Championship which was won by Ronnie O’Sullivan, the oldest champion in history. This live scoring page is significant if you have backed a century in the match. You can also find each player’s potting percentage and how they have fared with the rest.

With betting companies exploring how they can improve their app offering all the time, expect to see more content, live streams and scoring data added in 2024.
