    How We Select the Best Sports Betting App

    In order to rate the sports betting apps and get a full overview of the pros and cons for each sports betting app we used divided the test into three main categories and eight sub-categories. All categories were weighted equally in terms of importance and the ranking results are wholly based on the total points scored in all the eight sub-categories.

    Design

    Ease of Use

    This is bottom line probably the most important thing for a sports betting app to generate returning customers. If the user journey is too complex the players will lose interest and go elsewhere.

    Look and Feel

    This opinion is obviously subjective. The test focuses on the small details that makes a sports betting app stand out from the rest.

    Functionality

    App Features vs Desktop

    Some apps lack a bit of the functionality that is offered on the desktop version of the sportsbook. In this part of the test we look at the features offered in the app vs desktop and the total amount and quality of those features.

    Odds Selection vs Desktop

    In some cases the odds selection and number of markets are a bit more limited in the sportsbooks’ app versions.

    Banking Options

    How easy can you make a deposit and withdraw money in the sports betting app?

    Technology

    Stability

    Some apps just tend to stall, shut down or demand updates much too often. The less this happens the better.

    Accessibility

    Is the sports betting app available for Android in Google Play, iOS in App Store or any other device? What software requirements are needed to install the sports betting app?

    Speed

    How fast is the app? What is the loading time to place a bet? The faster the better as betting on the go often involves in-play betting and with live odds constantly updating you do not want to miss out due to a slow sports betting app.

    Bet365 – The Cream of the Crop

    Bet365 is still relatively new and unknown on the New Jersey sports betting scene but in the rest of the world, Bet365 is and has for some time been the dominant sportsbook. Bet365 is the biggest sportsbook in the world and considering how good their sports betting app is, we would be surprised if they do not become on the of key players in New Jersey and other states they move into. The Bet365 app is very user-friendly with a clean design. It’s full of great features and best of all it’s super fast. PointsBet came very close in the race for the top spot and considering how young this sportsbook is, they have done a great job in delivering a fantastic sports betting app.

    All the sports betting apps reviewed in this test had an outstanding design with great user experience. PointsBet is our favorite app in the Design category. The functionality score is where we identified the biggest gaps between the 5 apps. Some do not offer sufficient banking options and lack features that are offered on the desktop version. Again, the PointsBet app came out on top for best functionality. Technology-wise we found the apps to be pretty identical with Android and iOS versions, low down-time and few to no bugs at all. Speed of the app was great for all sports betting apps but Bet365 was superior in this category which ultimately also led to them taking home the prize as the best sports betting app in New Jersey. See test results below…

    Best Sports Betting App in Pennsylvania

    Seal of the state of Pennsylvania

    In opposite to New Jersey the Pennsylvanian sports betting market has a limited amount of sports betting apps. The market has been open since May 2019 but so far it has not attracted as many sports betting apps as one could have expected. The main reason for this is probably due to the high taxation rate and cost to obtain a sports betting license. We have selected what we consider to be the top 5 sportsbooks in the Keystone state and compared their apps based Design, Functionality and Technology. Keep reading to see the test results.
