If you are serious about betting, particularly when it comes to staking in the in play markets then you should have a bookmaker’s app installed or, at the very least, have access to their mobile site. It makes things much easier both for in play and ante post with clear advantages across the board.
Paddy Power are a long established bookmaker but they like to keep up to date with all of the latest developments in the industry so what have they done with their app and mobile site to make it stand out?
Any mobile offering must be user friendly and that means it should be fast to load, and easy to navigate around. Players want the sign in page to be simple to get past and then they need to find their favourite markets in the shortest space of time.
Ease of use is important but perhaps the most vital component for an app or mobile site is speed. This applies to in play more than ante post but in both cases you want to take advantage of the best odds in markets that can change quite quickly.
Testing of the Paddy Power app shows that they meet all of the above requirements. The site loads quickly and it is very easy to find your way around. On the app, when you log in there are four clear tabs which guide you to the next point.
The first of these tabs shows all of the popular bets that are current at the time you log in to your Paddy Power account. So, if you are after the popular punts yourself then the chances are that your required bet will show up at this stage.
The second tab gives you all of the in play options that are applicable so if you’re looking for a live bet then you should click here. Moving on, the third tab shows the next horse races that are coming up. Horse racing remains extremely popular for the majority of punters so it’s logical that this should appear here.
Finally, the fourth tab will show a current major event so it could be Royal Ascot, Wimbledon Tennis, Football’s World Cup or the Cheltenham Festival. If it’s a big tournament and a popular one to bet on, Paddy Power will include it in their final link.
Even if you are looking beyond those four main tabs, it will be quick and easy to find the market you want with scrolling links that appear at the top of the page.
If an operator doesn’t list a specific bonus for mobile betting then it should, at the very least, keep all of the offers that are displayed on their static site. Paddy Power fall into the latter category so while there are no extra incentives for betting on the go, you can still take advantage of all their standard promotions.
These include the opening deal which is a risk free bet worth up to £10.00 when you open an account while all of the regular free bet offers and price boosts can be used by mobile customers. Paddy Power are always busy when it comes to giving offers, both for the big tournaments and for regular daily events so it’s important that this section is covered.
Both the app and the mobile site at Paddy Power get good independent reviews from the regular, reliable sources. The app can be downloaded via the usual areas for both iPhone and Android and as we’ve seen in this round up, it ticks all of the boxes in terms of speed and ease of use so if you are a serious punter then it’s good to have this on your side.
