Sportsbook

Which sportsbook has the best app? We have taken a look at sportsbook apps and have the answer for you. You might not be surprised to learn that FanDuel has the best sportsbook app and you may also not be surprised that the DraftKings app ranks a close second. You might be surprised, however, at how some of the other sportsbooks rank in terms of their mobile apps. Each of the sportsbook apps have their plusses and minuses, but what is most important is how the app looks, responds and what it offers. Let’s look at the top ten sportsbook apps.

  1. Caesars Sportsbook

Another well-known sportsbook name is Caesars and they have a very good app that is easy to use.

  1. FOX Bet Sportsbook

FOX Bet is getting a lot of press recently since they are advertised on a lot of the FOX network sporting events. The app for FOX Bet is good and it has a nice design that makes accessing the lines easy and quick. FOX Bet is not in as many states yet as some of the other books, but that should change.

DraftKings Sportsbook Review

  1. WynnBET Sportsbook

You probably known Wynn Resorts for what they do in Las Vegas, but they also have a mobile sports app. WynnBet first started in July of 2020 in New Jersey and then went into Colorado later that year. WynnBET is now available in Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, and Virginia.

The WynnBET mobile app is available on both iOS and Android platforms. The WynnBET app is different than some others, as there are individual apps for each state. The apps all offer the same things with minor differences based on the state. For example, the New Jersey college teams wouldn’t be listed on the NJ app but they would be listed in other states. The WynnBET app is solid and since it is from Wynn Resorts it definitely looks fancy. One big plus is that they post odds on games faster than many other books.

  1. PointsBet Sportsbook

You have to give PointsBet some credit for doing things differently. They first started in Australia in 2017 and now they have expanded into the U.S. market. The app is fast with almost everything, although the options can be somewhat different.

The PointsBet mobile app is available to download on both iOS and Android platforms. PointsBet covers all of the major sporting leagues and the app makes it easy to view lines. The app is also fast for deposits and withdrawals. What makes PointsBet different is that their software is in-house and they set their own odds. The pricing is different and the layout looks different, but that is not all bad. They also offer PointsBetting which has high risk and high reward. PointsBet does need to improve their lag time for taking bets, as many competitors are faster in processing wagers.

  1. BetMGM Sportsbook

One of the most recognizable names in the sportsbook industry is BetMGM and they have a very good app that offers a wide variety of betting options. BetMGM has a good sign-up bonus and their app is very easy to use. BetMGM is available in Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, Nevada, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington D.C, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

  1. Betway Sportsbook

One of the newer sportsbooks on the scene is Betway, who launched in Colorado and Indiana in June of 2021. They have expanded to five states, as they are also available in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Iowa. More states are on the way, so Betway will be a major brand in no time.

Betway’s mobile app is available on both iOS and Android platforms. The app is new, but it has some advantages in that it is simple and very easy to use. There is not a lot of clutter and banners screaming at you all the time. Betway has all of the major sports markets covered and also has a few obscure ones like darts and lacrosse. The live betting menu on the Betway app is also very appealing. You will be hearing more from Betway as they have partnered with the New Jersey Devils of the NHL.

  1. UniBet Sportsbook

The last sportsbook app to make the list is UniBet. They offer a wide variety of sports betting options on their app. UniBet is currently available in Arizona, Indiana, Iowa, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia with more states expected to come online soon.

The one drawback of the app is that it can look a little bit cluttered with so many options. Once you get used to all of the options it becomes fairly easy to use.
