Mobile sports betting is by the increase in the widespread adoption of smartphone technologies. Statistics show that 3.5 billion people across the globe have smartphones. In other words, 44.98% of the world’s population has access to a smartphone. Finally, 59% of the world’s population are active Internet users.
It is important to note that these numbers are skewed towards first world countries. Figures show that 82% of Europeans have access to the Internet, and 72.2% of the people living on the American continent have Internet access. On the other side of the scale, only 28.2% of people living in Africa have access to the Internet.
A guide to downloading an Android Mobile App
Not only are the worldwide smartphone and Internet availability statistics relevant to this discussion as they show the need for sportsbooks to provide mobile apps for their clients, but it is worth noting that the most popular smartphone is the Android phone. Consequently, bookmakers must provide a high-quality Android app that has similar functionality to their website for clients to download and install.
Therefore, let’s look at how to download the Betwinner mobile app for Android:
Download the app
Sports betting apps are generally not downloaded from the Google Play Store. Fortunately, Android allows apps not available on the Play Store to be downloaded and installed from an “unknown source.” All you have to do is to change your phone’s settings to allow downloads from sources other than the Play Store, and then you are good to go.
The next step is to navigate to the sportsbook’s website, find the web page that allows you to download the app, and click on the “Download App” button at the top of the page.
Install the app
Once the .apk install file has been downloaded, can install the app. Before you can install the app, you must go to your phone’s settings app and click on “Allow Unknown Sources.” This setting lets your phone know that this app is safe to install. It’s not malware or a virus.
The next step is to navigate to the phone’s download section and click on the recently downloaded .apk file. The app will install without any problems. Should the app not install, then it is worth deleting the app’s install file (the .apk) and starting the download and install process over again. If you are still having a problem, then it’s best to contact the sportsbook’s customer support centre for advice.
Once the app has successfully been installed on your phone, you can log into the app using your website’s credentials (username and password). If you do not have any user credentials, you must first open a gambling account with the sportsbook, fill in and submit all the relevant KYC (Know Your Customer) documentation, and fund your bankroll with an initial deposit.
Once this process has been completed, you’ll be able to use the mobile app to bet on the sporting codes and matches of your choice.
