    OK, I know that a bunch of you guys are going to say that I can download the Draftkings app from the iTunes App Store and start wagering on everything from American Football to NBA basketball but I'm just looking for a regular online sportsbook app that will work on my iPhone or my Samsung Galaxy tablet. Just a few months ago the Guardian was reporting that sports betting was about to become legal across the United States because of a ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States.

    Because of this I figured it would be pretty easy to download and install a regular sportbook app like Bet365 in the United States bu it seems that that's not the case. Why not if sports betting is now legal in the good auld USA?

    Can anyone recommend a way that I can download a bookmaker app in the United States that will work on an iPhone 8? I just want to be able to place regular straight and prop bets and wager on the occasional major horse race like the Kentucky Kerby.

    While it is true that individual states can now decide if they want to legalize sports betting for their citizens, I think we are still far from a situation where there are legal bookmakers across the entire of the USA like there is in most countries in Europe. Many states don't want to legalize online sportsbooks, while others are threatening to heavily tax them so they can't compete with offshore bookies who don't have those extra overheads. While we wait for the first legal sportsbooks to appear in the United States, I think these are the two best options available now if you want to wager from your iOS/Android smartphone/tablet.

    Bovada have spent more on developing their betting app that any other US facing bookmaker and it shows. It's definitely the closest U.S. punters have to the slick betting apps like Bet365 that are available in other parts of the world. It has a strong focus on U.S. horse racing and other major U.S. sporting leagues like the NFL, College football and NBA. Here's why we think it's the best U.S. sports betting app on the market today....
    • It's super easy to deposit at this sportsbooks with any credit or debit card issued by an American bank, including American Express, Visa and MasterCard. They have the highest credit card acceptance rate in the industry.
    • They also accept bitcoin and withdrawals are processed in a matter of hours to your BTC wallet.
    • Super slick iPhone and Android app that offers sports betting, horse race betting (from the USA and Canada), casino games and mobile poker (including tournaments).
    • More prop bets than any other American bookie plus huge array of live in-play betting lines.
    • Wager on everything from American football to the National Hockey League and the English Premier League effortlessly from your smartphone.
    Bovada also have the added advantage of being a massive gambling brand that have been in existence for well over a decade so you can be sure that any money you have in your betting account. They are also highly ranked on Sportsbook Review because they consistently get positive feedback from users. Overall the Bovada Mobile Sportsbook is worth downloading and trying if you are a US sports fan.
