Online Sportsbooks Offer Punters High-Tech Entertainment!

It’s all about technology and convenience today and one industry that truly understands this is the sport betting sphere. From a huge number of global sports markets offering odds and just about every aspect of a game, event, or race to state-of-the-art desktop and mobile tools to place bets, you have to take your hat off to the sports betting interface designers that bring highly convenient and easy-to-use member areas where billions in sterling passes through every year!

Mobile Betting Via Apps

Before web browser betting became a thing, sports books knew they needed a viable solution to give their members the chance to place bets while on the move. Of course, the app market was booming at the time with Android and iOS mobile applications at the top of their game while Windows Mobile and Blackberry apps were also a thing. Today apps are not so important, but you will still find some major sports betting companies online offering iOS and Android downloadable versions of their sports book.

Mobile Betting Via HTML5 Web Browser

The most common way to access an online sports book today is via your web browser. This is all thanks to HTML5 technology. This is a system that allows you to use your mobile web browser, be it Chrome, Safari, Edge, or your mobile device’s custom browser. All you need is the URL of the sportsbook. Once your web browser sends a request, the sports book interface detects the device type and screen size in order to send you a version of its betting interface that fits your device’s screen perfectly.

Bonus Bet Tracking  

Bonus systems are an important feature in the online sports betting world. Free bets are given out by bookmakers to attract new bettors to the site. These free bets include no deposit bonus offers which are a way to get a free bet without making a deposit. You sign up and gain access to the same website real money users bet on, so you get to have a good look around what is on offer. From the sports book point of view, your free bet access will result in you making a real money deposit because you like what you see.

On top of the no deposit bonus, there are also welcome bonus offers. This is a deposit match that will give you more free bets to play with. It’s not ‘risk free’ as with the sign-up bonus because you need to deposit real money to gain your free bet. For example, you deposit £10.00 and you receive £40 in free bets. Of course, you cannot withdraw this bonus money until you play through a certain wagering requirement which means you will need to win bets paid in more bonus cash and continue to bet until you have bet enough to convert your free deposit bonus into real money.

To keep track of your bets, bonus money, and wagering requirements, complex bonus systems work behind the scenes. And the bonus offers do not stop there because there are always regular bonus offers for more free bets, enhanced odds, and more chances to get value for your money.

In-Play Betting Technology + Live Streaming

Live streaming may seem like a privilege you would only get by signing up to a specialised sports stream website. However, sports books make deals with sports organisations all over the world to bring their members live football, tennis, cricket, horse racing, and many other sports. And with this comes an in-play betting system that gives you live odds that update in real time. I.e., you can place bets even when the game is in action. Football is very popular because you can bet who will score the next goal, which team will get the next throw in, or which team will pick up the next yellow or red card!
