Mobile Sports Betting at Betfair
The Betfair online bettings app appears to have mirrored the general aesthetics of the main website. It maintains the characteristic yellow and black theme with largely the same classic layout as that of the web version. The app’s homepage has links to the most popular markets and in-play features making for easy navigation. Here’s an overview of some of the top features the sports betting app has to offer.
No mobile betting app would be considered complete without a cash-out option. After all, what choice would you have if you realized that your team wasn’t performing as you would have expected? Betfair understands this conundrum all too well. The cash-out feature allows players to lock-in their profits (or losses) to avoid incurring any further losses while a match is still underway. That way, you have the chance to recoup some of your wagers if the matches aren’t going the way you expected.
In the same way that you can cash out if a game isn’t going as expected, In-Play bets allow you to do the exact opposite. If you think that a team is performing better than expected you can use the feature to gauge how the games or tournaments are going and place wagers based on this information. Betfair is one of the few betting companies that offer this.
Most traditional bookmakers offer a fixed price for bets, Betfair allows players to set their odds if they don’t like what’s on offer. So, the app automatically checks the prices that other customers offer in the Exchange, and if it comes across something better all odds on single bets get multiplied. The best part is that there are no hidden charges or commission you have to pay. What you see is what you get!
If you are a new or existing customer then you’ll like the perks that come with Acca Edge. Here’s how it works. If you place multiple bets that contain at least three selections and you lose on one of them, you’ll get your entire wager reimbursed. Betfair’s Acca Edge, however, is somewhat different from rest since you get cash refunds instead of a free bet. This applies to all markets including cricket played in India, England and Australia, football leagues, tennis tournaments, and other eSports.
Bonuses and Promotions
Betfair has lots of exciting bonuses for both new and existing clients. Sportsbook customers can take advantage of loyalty bonuses that earn them $5 for every $15 bet they place every week. If you bet in a horse racing competition and your horse loses after going odds-on in-play, you get your money back as cash. If you have Betfair bonus codes you can apply them to get bet credits to use in any of the betting markets available. It doesn’t stop there.
If you are new to Betfair, depositing $30 after completing the registration process earns you $60 to bet with. This promotion runs all through 2020 in jurisdictions where online gambling is legal.
Payment Methods Available
The mobile cashier offers a variety of deposit and withdrawal methods to and from your Betfair account. You can use your Visa or Mastercard debit and credit card, or opt for a bank transfer instead. They also support eWallets like PayPal, Skrill, Neteller, and WebMoney. The maximum and minimum deposit and withdrawal limit all boils down to the payment method you use.
If you want to get your funds in the shortest time possible, the Fast Funds feature exists for just this purpose. Transfers from your wallet in the Betfair platform to your bank account using this feature can happen anywhere from a few seconds to 2 hours. Betfair accepted currencies include USD, GBP, EUR, AUD, HKD, DKK, and SKK. If you have any other currency like Indian Rupees, you can change it to any of the accepted currencies at the prevailing exchange rate.
If you have any issues or queries, the fastest way to reach their customer support staff is to message them on the app. While the contact tab isn’t prominently displayed on the homepage, you can select the Help link and then click on the Contact Us tab. Proceed to select the issue that best describes what you would like help with and then submit the message. A live chat function, however, would have been more appropriate.
Betfair Mobile App for iOS
iOS users can download the app directly from the Apple App Store. It is compatible with all iOS-powered devices namely iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch running on iOS 8.1 or later. The user interface is very intuitive and adapts well across different devices. You can easily check game odds, place a bet In-Play, deposit, as well as, withdraw funds anywhere, anytime.
Betfair Mobile App for Android
The Betfair mobile app for Android is quite responsive and adapts seamlessly to different screen orientations. It is compatible with any Android smartphone or tablet. While the app isn’t hosted on Google Play Store, you can download the .apk file from the main website, install it to your device and play to win before the betting lines close. Ensure that the settings of your Android device allow for installations from unknown sources.
Betfair has lots of amazing promotions and bonuses, in addition to a host of betting markets in a variety of sporting events to choose from. It adapts well across different devices although it could do with a bit of improvement when it comes to overall aesthetic appeal. But that aside, if aesthetics don’t matter all that much to you, then the app will certainly get the job done. It is certainly worth checking out.
