Top 5 betting apps in Australia
Types of betting apps available to Australians
With mobile communication and browsing definitely the future and the now, Australian sports betting companies are spending plenty of money upgrading their apps. Most of Australia’s biggest online betting shops have got both Android and Apple apps available for their customers, while they ALL have websites accessible and responsive via mobile. The three types of apps Australians can access via their handsets are:
Samsung, Google, Sony and Pixel are just some of the brand names that run off the Android operating system. The best thing about Android apps is that they are downloadable from the Google Play store, plus they can be downloaded directly from the sources as well — you just need to have turned on non-market apps. Basically Android users have significantly more freedom than Apple users.
iOS is the operating system that powers Apple phones, and while there has been some knockoff phones on the market, we are purely talking about Apple phones on this page. The difference between Apple and Android betting apps, is that the iOS apps can only be downloaded from the Apple store — and are not available directly from the sources. Basically if you don’t have an Apple account and iPhone or iPad you won’t be able to download Australian betting apps.
Are you a regular bettor but don’t have a Android or iOS phone, but you do have a smartphone? Your answer is to create a web app, which is essentially just a shortcut on the desktop of your device’s homepage, which allows you to load the chosen bookie’s mobile website, basically instantly.
Live streaming via AU betting apps
One of the biggest drawcard’s of using betting apps over the desktop websites of Australian bookmakers, is that you can live stream many of the biggest sporting events live over you handset. Some of the key sports covered by Australian bookies via their apps include:
Sportsbet and the NBA: Do you want to watch the no.1 league in the USA? Sportsbet allows you to watch every NBA game live and free, as long as you have an account, that has been funded recently.
BetEasy and horse racing: The fact BetEasy has got every Australian horse race (courtesy of their vision deal with Sky Racing) make them a must-have for any racing fan.
Bet365, tennis and football: If you’re looking for a bookie that has got tennis and soccer covered extensively, the self-proclaimed world’s biggest bookie covers most international tennis tournaments with streaming; while many major football leagues, including the EPL are also covered.
Aussie betting app payment methods
There are many payment methods available at Australian betting sites, and their respective apps generally have the same deposit options available. For instance the most common ways to fund your betting accounts include credit and debit cards and payment processors like POLi. Some of the common payment options you will find at online bookmakers in Australia include:
