With the advances in mobile technology over the past few years the majority of Canadians are now placing their online bets through mobile devices. Online sportsbooks have noticed this and are offering great mobile betting platforms to accommodate players interested in betting via their mobile phone or tablet.
Advantages of Mobile Betting
The number of Canadian users using their mobile devices to bet on sports has increased tremendously over the past few years and it is now significantly more common for bets to be placed via a mobile device than a computer.
I’ve personally noticed this change with many of my friends. Some don’t even own a computer anymore and instead use their mobile devices to do everything online.
The obvious advantage of mobile betting is that you can place bets from anywhere you can get a phone signal. This means that you don’t have to plan to log on to your computer to place your bets in advance. Let’s go through a few scenarios this would be an advantage!
- You’re live at the Maple Leafs game and notice Auston Matthews go down with an injury in the warm up.
- You’re at the bar with some friends and want to put some money on the game to make it more exciting.
- You’re away from home running errands and realize the game you wanted to bet on is starting in a few minutes.
- You’re in your living room and don’t want to walk to your computer to place a bet!
The scenarios where mobile betting can come in handy are endless and the betting sites have made it so easy to bet from your mobile device that most Canadians prefer that route to logging into their accounts on their home computer.

Live Betting with Mobile Device
You will noticed that the Live Betting options are very prominent on the mobile betting platforms. This is because mobile betting and live betting go hand in hand. If you’re watching the game on your tv, with buddies at the bar or in person you won’t have a computer handy so mobile betting will be your only option. Because of this mobile betting is great for placing quick live bets based on your thoughts on the game.
It can be advantageous to save time getting to the betting site on your mobile device, especially if you’re trying to place a live bet. For this reason I suggest adding a shortcut to your betting sites mobile site on your devices homepage.
To do this on an iPhone or iPad you just click on the “Share” icon once at the sports betting website (this looks like a square with an arrow pointing upwards). Select the “Add To Home Screen” icon, name your button and click “Add”.
I’m sure it’s very easy to do this on other mobile devices as well.
