Good news to Betfair players. The world’s largest sports betting exchange has now released and brand new official Betfair iPhone App. The iPhone sports betting app allows you to bet across all of Betfair’s markets including both sports and financial betting.
The iPhone betting app comes with a range of features for users (you can read more at //www.iphonebetting.org/). Users can back and lay teams, use the in-play betting features and they will have full access to their account and cashier. You can make deposits and withdrawals to your account using the iPhone sports betting app, and it works seamlessly across Wi-Fi, 3G and Edge networks. One of the best things about the official iPhone app is that it revolutionizes sports betting. You can bet in the live-odds markets on the go or whilst you’re at the football match easily. The in-brower software, which doesn’t use flash, basically allows you to navigate the entire Betfair website and features.

If you want to start betting on your iPhone all you have to do is sign up an account at Betfair and download the official app from the iTunes store. You can log in with the same username and password as your computer account and you’ll be able to start placing bets with your account immediately.
Betfair’s iPhone App was released on September 2010 from the guys at Betfair Labs. Betfair purposely targeted the iPhone and mobile betting market after they saw a surge in profits in mobile betting. Their revenue in mobile betting increased 40% from last year according to Betfair executive. In doing so, Betfair also became the first UK bookmaker to release an official app for the iPhone, which is now in its 4th generation aka the iPhone 4.
Unfortunately, the Betfair iPhone App will only work within the geographic regions of the UK and Ireland. Betfair have worked alongside excisting GPS technology in the iPhone to ensure that it is locked outside of these jurisdictions. In addition, you will have to be over 18 to use the application in accordance with UK gambling legislation.
iPhone users can still take advantage of the fantastic £25 Betfair Bonus when they sign up and make a deposit through their iPhone. In order to take advantage of this offer, all you have to do is sign up an account at Betfair and make at least £25 in bets. Once you have done this you will receive an additional £25 in free bets to use across any of the fixed odds or in-play betting markets.
