There's been a seismic shift in the way people bet on sports in recent years. The days of going to a physical sportsbook to place a bet on a game have gone the way of the dinosaur.
Even the act of going online and logging on to your favorite sportsbooks web page to put down a wager is growing more passé with each passing day.
We live in a mobile society today in so many ways and sports betting is no exception to this rule. At the 2019 East Coast Gaming Conference in Atlantic City, N.J., industry experts projected that within the next decade, 90 percent of all sports wagers placed in the United States would be made via a mobile device.
"That's the way the world is moving," Dan Shapiro, vice president of strategy and business development for bookmaker William Hill US, told Associated Press.
Nearly 80 percent of all sports wagers placed in the state of New Jersey in 2019 were made online.
"The true capability of sports wagering is mobile," predicted Parikshat Khanna, CEO of CG Technology, a licensed Nevada bookmaker.
Recognizing this trend, online betting sites are ramping up their mobile game. Almost all sites now offer live video streams and audio commentary. Mobile bookmakers stream thousands of sporting events for free every month to their iOS apps. Watch anything from matches at Wimbledon to NBA basketball on your mobile device. For those who bet the ponies, horse racing from around the globe is also streamed daily.
Since mobile is the wave of the future, betting sites are offering exclusive promotions to new players who download their iPhone and iPad apps.
That being the case, sports bettors looking for an online sportsbook should be playing it smart when it comes to their smartphone. The best bet is to determine firstly, whether the betting site offers mobile apps and secondly, is the site's mobile app compatible with an Apple iPhone?
Well, you could do that, or you could just continue to read on, because these are the top betting sites with iOS compatible mobile apps.
