Seasoned gamblers and casual punters alike will soon agree that the Betfair Exchange i-Phone app is a useful piece of kit. Once downloaded you’ll be able to access exchange betting markets for a range of top sports, live betting events as well as Betfair Casino.
The A-Z button at the bottom of the app takes the hassle out of finding your desired sport and also gives access account options such as bet history, open bets, and personalisation of the app. At the top of the home page, quick links to Football, In-Play, Multiples, Horse Racing, Casino and Arcade make for swift access to the more popular markets. These are located above a slideshow of the latest promotions, with betting the next race off below and a quick scroll down will reveal the current most popular bets.
With the Betfair Exchange i-Phone app, you and fellow punters act as the bookmaker and can set your own odds, thus giving ample opportunity for a much bigger take than if betting with a traditional bookie. Backing a selection is as simple as finding your desired event and market then tapping on the odds displayed in blue. This will open up options for you to alter the odds and set your stake before placing the bet, which must then be matched by another punter or group of punters that are willing to oppose your bet. Should you be doubtful about a selection winning you may wish to ‘lay’ the bet on the exchange. To do this simply tap the odds in red which you may wish to change, then set your stake and place the bet. When laying a bet you will keep the stake if the selection does indeed lose, but you must pay out the winnings if it wins.
The in-play offering on the Betfair exchange app is vast, with plenty of punters willing to back and lay at favourable odds as football matches ebb and flow and as horse races begin to unfold. The thrill of live betting is supplemented by Betfair’s superb cash out feature which allows an early payout on selected markets. Cash out is even available on multiples, so you can cash out on horse racing accumulators between races or even take an early profit on a football acca when not all of your selections are winning. The cash out button is located at the bottom of the app for easy access and opens up a page to show which bets are eligible for cash out and the current cash out value offered by Betfair.
When browsing the markets on the i-Phone app, you can check the market depth by simply rotating your screen to a landscape view, while the Price/Volume over time for any given market can be viewed by clicking the graph symbol in the bottom left next to the market rules.
The Betfair Exchange i-Phone App comes highly rated from the company that pioneered the sports betting exchange. It’s easy to use and jam-packed with betting value and great features to help you get more enjoyment out of having a punt.
The Betfair Exchange i-Phone App works well on all i-Phone models and as it’s available on iOS can also be used on i-Pad. Though we recommend using the app where possible, any smartphone or tablet with an internet browser can also access the Betfair Ex
