The Sky Bet app for mobile betting is considered as one of the top five betting apps in the online gambling industry today for many reasons. Such excellence partly stems from the fact that its parent company, Sky PLC, is one of the most recognized and respected names in the industry, as well as that its features and functions make for fast, easy and enjoyable betting experiences.
Sky Betting and Gaming, a British-based gambling corporation, operates the Sky Bet app. As a subsidiary of Sky PLC, it also manages three other core brands, namely, Sky Vegas, Sky Bingo, and Sky Poker, as well as Oddschecker, a leader in the online beating odds comparison niche.
The bottom line: The sky’s the limit when it comes to betting on sports, casino games, and virtual races, among others, on the Sky Bet app. The trick is in choosing the sports or games that will satisfy your thirst for betting on the go – at least, until the hit subsides and the bug hits again.
The Sky Bet app was launched in August 2011 specifically for the Apple iPad and iPhone but all markets are also available for Android devices. Like all of its gambling operations, the app is licensed and regulated under the rules and regulations of the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC).
Bettors who have already used the Sky website of the interactive Sky television should have little to no trouble using the Sky Bet mobile app. The app looks and feels instantly familiar because of its recognizable colour scheme, layout, and navigation, as is the case on the website, yet with the convenience of a mobile-friendly design.
The mobile app has a well-organized set-up that makes it easy even for first-time mobile bettors to assess their odds, place their bets, and monitor their accounts, among other activities. Bettors have the benefit of highlighted bets displayed on the screen’s centre with emphasis on horse racing and football, two of the most popular sports among British punters.
But aficionados of other sports, such as golf and tennis, will also find it easy to place their bets. The quick access buttons to these main sports are located across the screen’s top and bottom while the highlighted events are bookended.
Even the sports layout is a joy to see and use. For example, the horseracing section displays the time of the next races, ante post and race meetings as well as specials whole the football section has live matches in-play.
Betting slips can be quickly accessed with a simple push of a finger toward the screen’s topmost portion. Add in the ease of navigation, the quick responsiveness, and the easy-to-see buttons and the Sky Bet app is a great way to get your betting fix on the go.
