International Travel

The biggest question asked about mobile betting services of all kinds is whether or not they can used internationally. And, yes, this app does work internationally. The big catch is, the account is tied to a phone that’s enabled in a country where betting is legal. That means making bets from a foreign location will certainly involve a hefty international roaming charge.

The Future of Betting

Mobile sports betting apps are clearly going to constitute a big chunk of the sports gaming market in the future. As more advanced smart phones become ever cheaper and available to the public, this could easily become the primary connection between sports books and bettors. After all, there’s an element of privacy on a mobile phone app that’s not present on the family computer.

And the sooner affiliates adjust their marketing plans to capture a chunk of this growing market, the better off they’ll be.
