Best Betting App for Free Bets

I've taken a look at the most frequently asked questions about sportsbook apps we receive here at OLBG and have answered them for you.


Sportsbook App Free Bets

  • Which sportsbook app has the best free bet?

    The larger sportsbooks have the budget and customer base to be the most generous. The biggest free bet doesn't make them automatically the best app, however. If it just the size of the welcome bonus you are interested in, then head straight for our free bets page where all available free bets on your state can be found.

  • Which Sportsbooks app has the best bonuses and promotions?

    App promotions will change all the time, with different promotions appearing every week. Hit your state button above to reveal the sportsbook in your state that offers the greatest number of promotions for you to take advantage of on the sportsbook app.

  • Can I get a free bet on the mobile app and the website?

    Most advertise the same Sportsbook welcome offers on their app and their website. However you sign up, you should get the same offer.

    Sportsbooks want you to download their free betting app as this means when away from your desktop you will still bet with them. 

    The bigger Sportsbooks already had websites and ADDED an app to their offerings, newer bookies who have been set up with the app generation in mind often have the most innovative app promotions.

    In some cases, because their first thought was younger players who bet by apps, their newer sites were specifically designed for mobile apps. 

    These newer app providers are taking on the established bookies and doing a very good job, there mobile app free bets have to be generous as they are less established. 

Which betting site app has the best free bets.

Many mobile betting apps offer such a generous free bet that they can only offer this on their app for a limited time.

Free bets are part and parcel of registering a new sportsbook account and when doing so online, the betting site offers can be bigger still.

We would advise that you take advantage of the competition between app providers, just download a betting app when you see a free bet or promotion that you can use on a bet you are already considering.

10 Things to Consider When Looking For The Best Sports Betting App

How do you choose which of the hundreds of betting apps is best for you?

These are the most important aspects when deciding which sportsbook app is best for you.

1. Reliability

Online betting app reliability tends to be based on your signal rather than a sportsbook issue, the apps in our tests were all stable. 5G will also finally remove the few reliability issues that may remain.

2. Speed

The more data on offer on your phone can slow down navigation. Remove all apps and features from your phone that you no longer use.

3. Ease of Use

A good user experience starts with a simple to use app. Those that cram in more features with less stress for the user will win this battle. 

Less is More

Too many features and areas of an app doesn't always make the best app. Striking a balance between useability and functionality is key

4. Offer the best odds

On OLBG we are passionate about making you understand how getting the best odds is so important to profitable betting. The app from the betting site with the best odds will score highly.

5. Best choice of Live Betting Markets

Live betting is part and parcel of day to day betting activity these days. You'll be hard-pressed to find an app that doesn't have live betting. If you do, don't consider it.

6. Regular Promotions

Existing customer loyalty can be rewarded with various promotions made available via the betting app. You should not look to use all of these promotions, just those that fit with your online betting style.

7. At least the most popular betting lines and props

The bigger the depth of betting market availability, the better. however, at the very least we should be able to easily find the most popular lines and props.

8. Registration

App registration with most Sportsbooks is simple. Just a few minutes is all it takes to complete the sign-up process, make a deposit and be on your way.

9. Live Streaming

Sportsbooks who DON'T offer live streaming are missing a trick. There is nothing more convenient than making your wagers and being able to watch the event on the same app.

Betting apps that feature live streaming score heavily against those without.

10. Betting Information

Although not essential, some statistics, form lines and picks can be helpful additions in a sportsbook app.

To help your decision making This list of US Sportsbooks can assist you. 

More than one Sportsbook app?

It is healthy to compare odds between two apps, so downloading more than one is what many OLBG members have done. 

We Asked our users How Many Betting Apps They had Installed

They tended to have their first-choice bookmaker on their mobile device + one other who offered them specific features which made their betting life quicker and or easier

One may provide better odds on football, another on horse racing. Having two betting apps side by side on your mobile gives you the choice.
