Football Betting Apps: Key Features

It’s a big year for football fans – the World Cup does after all only come around once every four years. No wonder then that supporters of the beautiful game are salivating ahead of the forthcoming events in Qatar. 28 days, 32 nations, and 64 games – a true feast of action. 


World Cup Wagers

As with all football competitions, be it the Premier League, La Liga or the Champions League, one of the activities which goes hand in hand with the FIFA World Cup, is that of betting. 

Sites such as, which details the best of the latest betting deals can expect a significant upsurge in traffic ahead of the tournament which looks set to dominate the sports and betting news in the months to come.

In addition to excellent offers and promotions, one of the features the modern football bettor prioritises is a betting site with an excellent app. Always keen to meet the needs of their customers, many sites now come with an attached app, available to download for both iOs and Android devices. However, not all apps are created equally; some offer only a fairly basic betting experience, whilst others come with a whole array of betting bells and whistles.


Football Betting Apps: What to Look For

  • In-Play Betting: These days the betting action doesn’t stop when the game kicks off. Many football bettors like to place a bet as they watch how the game is unfolding. With so many televised games in such a short space of time at the World Cup, this is an excellent option to have at your disposal. Should a football betting app not offer a fully functioning In-Play betting feature, we would suggest looking elsewhere.
  • Live Streaming: Having placed your football bets, you will most likely want to watch the action and cheer them on. Whilst settling down on the sofa to watch the game on TV may be your number one choice, this may not always be possible. As such a betting app with a Live Streaming service can be a useful backup. Also, note that many of the best betting apps provide live streaming of games which may be difficult to find elsewhere.
  • Cash Out Facility: There are few things more frustrating in football betting than being on the verge of a nice win, only to be undone by a late goal. The Cash Out facility provides the option to avoid this heartache by closing your bet whilst the going is good. Of course, there may be occasions when you wish to see the bet out to the bitter end, but having the cash-out option can only count as a plus.
  • Bet Builder: The new kid on the football betting block is that of the Bet Builder. Rather than betting on the specific list of options provided by the bookmaker, these bets allow you to tailor your bet to meet your own requirements. Combine goal scorers, total goals, cards, corners and more to create the most bespoke type of football bet currently available. 

Whichever app you choose, remember to set a betting budget and stick to it. Other than that, sit back, relax, and get ready to enjoy the biggest and best sporting competition in the world!
