Football fever is in full swing as the time grows nearer to the kick-off of the FIFA World Cup 2022 held in Qatar in November. As the excitement increases, football fans around the world are gearing up to place their bets on their favourite teams. It has never been so easy to place a bet as it is today, thanks to the internet and technology. But when placing a bet or choosing a football betting app to place a bet, what should we be looking out for? In this article, we take a look at how to choose a good football betting app.
Great football betting apps have excellent security. This is paramount as you are providing your sensitive personal information. The first thing to do is check that the site is encrypted and has an SSL certificate. Also, check that the betting operator is licenced and regulated and that the app or mobile site you are using indeed belongs to the operator. A quick internet search will also give you an idea of how reputable the operator is and how other bettors find the app's security.
Your chosen football betting app should have all the markets you are interested in, both international and local, so that you can follow all your favourite leagues without having to go to another app. With this, make sure that your odds are in the format you prefer or that you can swap between decimals or fractions if you so choose.
Never has it been so crucial that football betting apps can have a good variety of payment and withdrawal methods. Make sure that your preferred method of payment and withdrawal is accepted by the operator and that they do so in a time-efficient way. You wouldn't want to miss placing a bet because your funds took an age to clear in your betting account. Another critical thing to check for is the ease of making a payment and withdrawal from your football betting app.
Football betting apps should be easy to navigate with buttons and tabs that open quickly and have a format that is concise. Betting menus should be easy to access, as should your account information. Live updates on the match you have placed a bet on should be clearly visible. Many football betting apps allow you to personalise the app, get notifications and bookmark specific topics you want to keep track of. You also want an app that offers live- streaming so that you never miss a moment to watch a match or place a last-minute in-match bet.
A good football betting app should have a wide selection of betting options and not be limited. For example, you should have odds and betting options for the best player, overall highest scorer, number of goals scored by each team, the percentage of goals to hit the post and so forth. You should also be able to choose the format your odds are shown, such as in decimals or fractions.
Every betting operator has promotions and offers, and football betting apps are no different. Most football betting apps have welcome offers, offers for using the app to place a bet or make a deposit specifically, bet and get offers, enhanced odds promotions, and even loyalty-related bonuses. These offers should also be realistic and not unattainable, thankfully betting operators are competitive, so you can shop around to find an offer best suited to your needs.
Football betting apps should have excellent customer service available 24/7, and you should be able to reach them via phone, email and live chat. As with most things, research will go a long way. Check the reviews left by other punters about customer service. A quick internet search will give you a lot of information. The FAQ pages should also cover a variety of topics and be in-depth. You can also test customer service by contacting them and seeing their response time.
There are hundreds of football betting apps available, and while we can give you all the tips on how to look for a great football betting app, it's essentially down to personal choice and style. Just be sure that your chosen app comes from a reputable gambling operator with all the safety measures, markets and odds you require.
