Why I Prefer Mobile Canadian Sportsbooks

I'm really glad that mobile Canadian sportsbooks continue to grow in popularity because I enjoy the convenience and freedom of being able to place a bet on any event anywhere in the world right from my Android phone. While these applications were once few and far between, this is no longer the case. These days, while there are a few different sites out there that will offer downloadable apps either for Android or iPhone, it's been found that simply creating an HTML5-capable is better because it reaches a much larger demographic. What's more, since no download or installation is needed, it is more likely that people will reach out and use that option. I happen to have one bookmarked that I can get to in a matter of seconds.

The convenience that these mobile Canadian sportsbooks provide is absolutely undeniable. For instance, while I was shopping the other day, I realized that I'd forgotten to place a wager on a soccer game. Rather than rush home, get my laptop out of the bag, boot it up, enter my password, connect the web and then navigate to a website to log in, all I had to do was pull my phone out of my pocket, open the browser and click on the bookmark. It really is that simple, and I wouldn't have it any other way. As long as you have a smartphone that is connected to the internet via Wi-Fi or a network, you can pretty much do anything. In fact, you can even fund your account in just a few simple steps.

My absolute favorite sportsbook - and the best, in my opinion - is Bodog. I never have to download or install anything, and there's never a fee to use the service. All I have to do is log in, choose either the sport or the 'live betting' option, enter the amount I want to stake and click to confirm. However, it's always a good idea to check with your network provider to see if any additional charges for the data usage will apply. If you're new to the site, they'll give you a deposit match when you sign up.
