If you live in the United States then you've probably noticed that when you visit the American version of the iTunes App Store or the Google Play Android app store that you won't find any mobile sportsbook apps that will allow you to wager on the NFL, NBA, boxing or golf. Sure you'll be able to find competition apps like Fan Duel or DraftKings but they can hardly be classed as online bookies. If you want to be able to place sports bets on your Android or iPhone in the same way that Europeans do with bookmaker apps like William Hill or Paddy Power, you can still do so but it requires a couple extra steps because you need to install the sports betting apps from the Safari or Chrome browser of your tablet or smartphone. STEP 1 - CREATE AN ACCOUNT AT U.S. MOBILE SPORTSBOOKS Before you download your USA betting app, you'll first need to create an account with a sportsbook that welcomes players from the United States. Here are our two favorites but there are others. BOVADA MOBILE - WWW.BOVADA.LV (Only available in the USA). Bovada have obviously spent a fortune developing their iOS and Android app and it shows. Most US friendly betting apps look like poor imitations of apps from major online bookies like Bet365 but not Bovada Mobile. They offer more prop bets than any other US-friendly sportsbook, the app works brilliantly on any type of iOS or Android device and they have the highest credit card acceptance rate in the industry. US sports punters from all 50 states can quickly deposit via a variety of methods, including cryptocurrencies. BETOLINE MOBILE - WWW.BETONLINE.AG BetOnline recently gave their desktop and betting apps a much needed facelift and we have to admit we are happy with the results. From the homepage of their U.S. betting app you get quick access to their most popular bets, player props and live in-play bets. Like with Bovada, United States citizens can deposit using traditional banking methods like Visa, MasterCard and American Express or they can instead opt for bitcoin, ethereum or litecoin. STEP 2 - VISIT THE MOBILE APPS ON YOUR ANDROID OR iPHONE Back in the old days you needed the know the mobile address of web-based applications before you could find them on your phone but thankfully these days you are automatically forwarded to the mobile apps by simply adding the URL to the browser of your smartphone. If you have an account just visit Bovada.lv or if you have an account with BetOnline just visit BetOnline.ag. STEP 3 - INSTALL YOUR USA BETTING APP ON YOUR HOMESCREEN There are a couple of advantages of installing the apps onto your iPhone or Android. Firstly, the screen size of your betting app becomes bigger because you no longer see the the top and bottom of the Chrome or Safari browser. Secondly, you won't need to type the name of the bookmaker website into your browser every time you want to place a bet because it will appear as an icon on the home screen of your phone. To install the app on your Android or iOS device, simply visit the homepage of the bookmaker on your phone and then from the browser options select "Add To Homescreen". You will then see the logo of the bookmaker appear on your phone's screen like every other app you have on your phone.
