When it comes to racing apps wherein people can place bets on their favorite race horses, greyhounds, and many more, Racebets is one of the best places to go to. Racebets is a leading horse racing gaming application that allows players from 40 countries place bets on their selected racing contestants. With sophisticated and appealing features, players can bet over 200,000 different types of races in style.

With its inception in the year 2005, Racebets has become one of the biggest bookmakers in the entire country of Germany.
In 2012, Racebets gained full access to the horse racing markets of the UK and Ireland. This was a milestone for Racebets as these two markets are the biggest in Europe. From there, Racebets eventually became globally recognized and has become one of the main gaming venues in the entire continent with its influence reaching some countries outside as well like the United States of America and Canada. Racebets was even able to spread their clientele all the way to countries in Asia such as Singapore. Today, Racebets is now operating under a UK license and is regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority.
Racebets Mobile app for Android
One of the best things about Racebets is that it offers a mobile version that existing players can check whenever they use their Android phone. As the platform does not have a dedicated Android app, there is no way that you can find a Racebets app in the Play Store or in Google Play. This does not mean though that you’ll not be able to use Racebets in our Android. Racebets has a special mobile optimized website that you can use when you are outside and would still want to check on the bets. In order to do this, you just have to create a bookmark on your device in order to quickly access the mobile friendly website version of Racebets. You may also install the web app which allows you to quickly be redirected to the mobile version of the Racebets betting platform.
One of the things about the Android web app of the Racebets platform is that it prompts you to configure some settings before you can use it. First, you need to click on the “Apps” label and then “Settings”. After that, click on the “Security” button and check the “Unknown Sources” box. This will allow you to install the web app for Android. Check out some of the screenshots to get an idea as to what the Android version looks like.
Although Racebets does not have a dedicated app, the mobile optimized website does have its own set of cool features that it can offer to the players. First of all, it offers a slide movement feature that most modern and interactive websites offer these days. With this feature, you just have to swipe left to see the options. The mobile website is also very organized and is also very appealing visually because of its warm colors. As for its options, there are three main tabs there being the Current tab which shows races happening now, the Ante-post tab which shows finished races, and the Calendar which shows a list of events that are to happen. There are also some tabs that allow you to register to the Racebets platform and there are also some sign in options that allow you to sign in if you already have an existing account with the platform. Other options include the highlights option which allows you to see the highlights of the races, the live streaming options, head to head races, and the next races.
Racebets Mobile app for iOS (Iphone and Ipad)
Just like the Android version of Racebets, there is no dedicated app for iOS devices that can be found in the Apple Store of Iphones and Ipads. So, by downloading the web app for iOS devices, you can be redirected right away to the mobile optimized website where you can start playing and placing bets on potential opportunities.
The Racebets iOS mobile app is exactly the same as the one that will be used by Android users as it is just the mobile website. All of the options that can be found by the Android users can also be found by the iOS users when you would boot up the mobile Racebets platform in your Iphone or Ipad.
The only difference between the Android version of the web app and the iOS version would be that iOS users will not have to configure any security settings anymore. Iphone or Ipad users can simply install the web app, boot it up, be redirected to the main mobile website page and then sign in.
Mobile site version review
As stated in the two previous sections, there are no dedicated apps for both the Android and the iOS devices which means that users of both these devices would have to rely on the mobile site version.
Aside from downloading the web app that redirects to the mobile site version, you may also enter the link of the mobile version which is https://m.racebets.com/. This website will allow you to access the mobile website on your phone when you boot up a browser.
All of the features and options that were mentioned above in the sections of the Android and the iOS are all the same as in this section as the mobile version of the website is the same for all smartphone and tablet users.

Verdict and Apps rating
The Racebets mobile app definitely deserves some praise and credit for being able to provide the customers with a good playing and betting experience that they can definitely enjoy wherever they are. That being said, this app deserves a rating of 8.5 over 10. The whole point that there is no dedicated app for the online gambling platform already puts a minus on the initial score. However, the features, the options, the aesthetic appeal, and the overall appeal of the mobile version of the website made up for that one con as a whole. This is why the app still gets a good score despite not having a stand alone app for mobile users. Let’s go through the pros and cons of the app.
First, the mobile version of the website is definitely aesthetically appealing. With its signature green and yellow look, it is not too flashy and neither is the color combination painful to the eyes. As a whole, the warm colors and the combination works well for the website. Also, the options and the tabs are all arranged properly in the mobile version so everything is quite easy to find.
With regard to the options, the mobile site offers live streaming, head to head race updates, highlights, and many more. You can get all of these cool benefits on your phone easily. Lastly, the bonuses are also very attractive as there is a welcome bonus that allows you to get 100% of your initial deposit wherein the max bonus that you can get is £50.
On the other hand, one big con would be that there is no dedicated app for the platform. Since everyone is already on mobile, it will be a bit hard for Racebets to compete with other betting platforms that have mobile apps. First of all, it is quite troublesome to have to load up the mobile website as redirecting to the webpage may take long. With a mobile app, loading is almost instantaneous. It is also much easier for the customers to have a simple app that allows them to access their bets quickly instead of having to go all the way to the mobile website version of the platform.
Comparing the pros and the cons, it can be seen that even though Racebets has one big con, they were able to make up for it with their pros. This is why Racebets is still one of the leading race betting platforms globally.
