Where the Action Is: Make Your Wager with These Top Sports Betting Apps

April/May 2023

For sports enthusiasts, betting isn’t just a game or a pastime, it’s a way to socialize and be part of a larger culture. After all, according to Sports Encyclopedia, historians date sports betting back thousands of years, when wagers were common at chariot races in Ancient Rome.

Through the years, sports betting evolved along with technology, with mandatory physical bets often replaced today by application-friendly digital opportunities to make some extra cash (if you’re lucky) during a favorite team’s game. Thanks to loosening restrictions and an ever-growing library of sports betting apps, a bettor in the United Kingdom can now place a wager on a horse at the Kentucky Derby, or a Formula 1 fan in Miami can place a bet on a driver in Monaco. Here are some top-performing options for newcomers and experts alike.


This globally used sports- book and online casino offers wagers on major leagues like NBA, MLB and UFC, as well as Formula 1, golf, rugby and darts. Make your bets before or during a live game with its in-play betting feature.


Headquartered in the United Kingdom, the top-rated sportsbook now makes strides stateside in New Jersey, Colorado, Ohio and Virginia. Launched in 2000, it offers a wide selection of features like Cash Out, Edit Bet and live streaming for national and international events, including the Super Bowl, Premier League and Cheltenham Festival.


This publicly traded company may have started from humble roots in New Jersey, but it spread throughout the United States with only a few restricted regions. DraftKings has a smaller global reach than Betway or Bet365, but for bettors stateside it remains one of the most popular apps. Added perks include free-to-play con- tests, signup promos and short-term profit boosts or bonus bets.


American users rave about FanDuel’s navigable app for both iOS and Android. With convenient features like live betting odds and signup promos, FanDuel features all U.S. major sports including college football and basketball.


For years, MGM Resorts in Las Vegas claimed the prime destination for physical sports betting, but even as more states legalized online sports betting, MGM still reigns with its digital sportsbook. It’s revered for comparing odds and is often used in conjunction with other betting apps.
