Bookmakers are betting on record numbers from mobile phone betting as the countdown to the biggest sporting event of the year (if not the decade) gets underway.
While the 2014 World Cup in Brazil promises to be full of surprises and upsets, you can be sure there will also be a few surprises when it comes to getting the latest football mobile app and special World Cup betting offers.
Bookmakers, mobile phone betting and live streaming
Take Dublin-based bookmaker Paddy Power for example, who already has key betting markets for the World Cup posted for mobile phone betting (from the Outright World Cup Winner to England’s Top Scorer). Paddy Power is also offering a free bet worth up to £50 for first time customers.
Then you have Ladbrokes, the oldest (if not biggest) bookmaker in the UK. Like PaddyPower, the folks at Ladbrokes are running a special World Cup mobile phone betting promotion that will also give you a free bet worth up to £50 when you sign up using the promo code F50.
However, if you are simply looking for a comprehensive app that features live score updates, live football on your mobile device, and live-coverage of all the World Cup matches – including the Final Draw – then your best is the official FIFA mobile app available for iOS and Android devices from the App Store and Google play.
