The increase in the popularity of the mobile device like the smartphone and tablet has led to the number of mobile apps accessible for consumption to rise exponentially.
Current statistics show that there are 2.8 million apps available for download on the Google Play Store, while the Apple App Store has 2.2 million published apps on it. These figures do not include the Android apps that are directly available for download from the owner’s website.
It is also perhaps worth noting that the Android phone ecosystem is preferred by 72% of all smartphone users. This fact explains why the Google Play Store has 0.6 million more apps than the Apple App Store.
Answering mobile sports betting app FAQs
Based on the justification for the use of a mobile sports betting app like the Tipico app, let’s consider some of the more relevant Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
Can I sign up for a sports betting account using the app?
Most sportsbooks offer new clients the opportunity to open an account, submit the KYC (Know Your Customer) documentation, and fund your bankroll via the app. Succinctly stated, you should be able to run a sports betting account entirely off the mobile app.
KYC documents: What and why?
The Know Your Customer (KYC) documentation process evolved out of a need to verify that clients are bona fide, legitimate clients and not front companies for terrorist organisation, the dark web, or black-market operation. Therefore, the documents required are usually a bank account statement stamped by the bank, a certified copy of your ID, and a utility bill as proof of address.
Can I deposit and withdraw funds from my account using the mobile app?
Yes, you can. Open the app and click on the payment options near your bankroll’s balance. This will allow you to access the deposit and withdraw option. It’s important to note that you can only withdraw funds the same way you deposited funds. For example, if you deposited funds via the wire transfer method, your withdrawal will be paid to you in the same way.
Are the betting odds the same on the mobile app and on the website?
Betting odds are the same across all of the sportsbook’s platforms, encompassing the bookmaker’s website, mobile app, mobile site, and brick-and-mortar presence if it is allowed to open in the New Normal. Different sportsbooks offer different betting odds. Therefore, it’s important to make sure that you know which odds your sportsbook is offering.
Is the mobile app available on the Google Play store?
No, the Android app is not published on the Google Play store. However, the download file, the .apk file, is available for download on the sportsbook’s website. Detailed installation instructions are also available with the download file.
Can I use the same account across all platforms, or do I need to open a different account for each platform?
You do not need to open a new gambling account for each of the sportsbook’s offerings. You use the same username and password, irrespective of whether you use the mobile app, desktop website, or mobile site to place bets.
