In this review we concentrated on the mobile version and tested its registration, payment, usability, betting and betting program. In the end we will give you a brief conclusion. Also check out our bookie review site, where we tested the best providers on the market.


Installation of Sportingbet’s mobile version

To be able to bet on your mobile, you don’t have to additionally download and install an app since Sportingbet “only” adjusted their desktop site for mobile devices. This means that you can access the mobile site on every operating system by simple putting www.sportingbets.com into your browser’s address bar. No matter if you are using an iPhone or iPad running on iOS or a smartphone or tablet running on Android. In Sportingbet’s advertisements, the company claims to have developed the app for every phone that came out in the last 5 years. iOS User additionally have the option to download the specific app from the App Store.

To call the webpage, just open your browser and type in the address. The page automatically recognizes the mobile device and redirects you to its mobile site.


Registration at Sportingbet app

Before you can start into the world of online betting at Sportingbet you have to create an account (if you don’t already have one).

The registration process is fairly easy and quick. Firstly, you have to fill in your name, e-mail address, phone number and birthday. In the next step you have to add your address, your preferred username and a secure password. The username as well as the password cannot exceed 12 characters. Much to our disappointment the registration only works for addresses within the UK borders since Austrian or German postal codes are identified as invalid. We hope that Sportingbet will reduce this limitation so other Europeans can register as well.

Putting money into your new account

To gain some winnings on your device you first have to put money into your account. Sportingbets offers the possibility to deposit from your mobile. You have to choose between 3 options, credit card, Ukash or Paysafecard. These might be sufficient, but we would have wanted to see more than 3 possibilities.


Log in and out

Sportingbet mobile login formIt is important for a user to log into the account fairly quickly and problem-free. This is possible by simply entering your username and password in the form. If you want to stay logged in, check the according box, or just let the system remember your username.

The log out button is located in the footer of the mobile page. By clicking on the button you will automatically be signed out.



Usability and impressions

Another vital feature of a good sports betting app is the design and handling. We expected the site to be an eye-candy, unfortunately we got disappointed in this case. The website looks like an alpha version from 5 years ago. Maybe the developer at Sportingbet should keep their eyes open for a new programmer and graphics worker. Also the handling is a distress due to its long loading time.

In terms of color the page orients itself at the desktop’s version and appears in a light, whitish grey and blue design. Other than that and a few nicely design icons the mobile page is a disaster. Therefore, Sportingbets has a lot of catching up to do so it can satisfy their customers.

The navigation consists mainly of a fold-out navigation bar where you can choose between their offers in sports and casinos. Live bets are to be found under ‘in:play’. The user can choose between 25 different betting categories. And besides the most common sports you can also bet on entertainment and political events.

The second navigation is situated in the footer and is divided into sports, casino, my account and deposit. At “my account” you can enter your settings concerning your account and please use “deposit” to put money into your account.


Placing bets on Sportingbet mobile

Now we take a look into the most vital question that comes up when we deal with mobile sports betting apps. Because also undergo we want to place our bets fast, easy and secure. To bet on an event, simply choose the preferred odd by clicking on it. Immediately a drop down menu opens and the user can decide whether they want to place it as a single bet or add the odd to the betting slip. This saves a lot of time especially when you want to submit single bet. But once there is at least one odd in the betting slip the next odds are automatically added – with a quick notification.

The betting slip itself impressed with a very clear structure and large buttons to ensure optimal handling even on smaller devices. Further, the user has the possibility to bet on a more advanced level. You can submit your bets as single, multi or system bets. Unfortunately, finesses like banks are missing. But the average bettor will be more than content.

Another criterion is how fast you can find even less popular events and bet on them. In our test we needed 6 steps to find an event from the German Regionalliga. But therefore we used the “detour” over the navigation bar to select our favored sport.

Betting offer

Sportingbet leaguesNow we concern ourselves with the bookie’s betting offer and whether we can find any drawbacks. Sportingbet offers its whole betting portfolio from the desktop version also at its smaller version for mobiles. Beside the 22 different sports you can also bet on Virtual Football, politics and entertainment. This seems to be a fairly large selection and ensures a good variety for betting enthusiasts.

Even at the amount of different betting strategies Sportingbet offers a more than solid range. You can choose from exciting 3-way bets, over/under bets, (preset) handicap bets and multiple goal and score bets. More advanced bettors might miss Asian bets as well as scorecast and wincast bets. But for the average bettor this offer is more than sufficient.

The live bet section doesn’t disappoint either. Sportingbet offers also a large variety of games where you can bet on score bets as well as more detailed bets like “next throw-in”.

Additional features are the casino and poker room which are also accessible mobile.

If any questions or problems come up, the customer’s support will be at your disposal either via e-mail or calling.



Conclusion of Sportingbet mobile betting

Betting undergo becomes more and more interesting for every betting fan and mobile versions are the new market for bookies where they have to establish themselves. The bookie Sportingbet also created its own mobile version for basically every device on the market and tries to keep up with their competition.

The biggest advantages are the well thought-out navigation and the compatibility for almost every device. Also the comprehensive betting portfolio was implemented from the desktop version. This might not be the biggest on the market but is sufficient for the average bettor so everyone has enough options.

On the other side, the disadvantages of the page are definitely its poor realization and its bad design – both are not really worthy. Further, the impractical sign-up sheet makes the app for many people unbearable. There are even complaints about the log in, which is really unnecessary. Moreover, the mobile version is only available in English. And the missing banks and other betting strategies make the app useless for advanced players anyway.

All in all we have to say that Sportingbet is a solid and good bookie who won’t make many friends with this poor mobile version. Especially someone who loves to bet underway will not be satisfied with Sportingbet mobile and we recommend to choose a different bookie.
