Several of my friends and acquaintances love betting on the go, especially when betting on horses, and I’ve noticed that they all have their preferred apps for that. It isn’t uncommon for them to switch between the apps to compensate for the lack of features some of them possess. This piece is not about who gives the best odds. This piece is about the best apps concerning betting on horse races based on several factors with just a pinch of personal preference.


This is a brand that is known to many who bet on sports. Now, in terms of user experience, and user interface, there are a few gems. First of all, fulfilling a betting slip is fast and intuitive, you can scan the market for changes and it provides stats and you can watch live races that take place in the UK and Ireland. You can even watch how previous races turned out in the hopes of extracting some information for yourself. It doesn’t stop there. In fact, you can even create a virtual stable, fill it with your favourite horses and get notified when they are supposed to run.


TwinSpires is available on Android and iOS. Furthermore, if you want to place a bet, but don’t feel like installing the app, they got you covered with their mobile site, which already presents a big plus. That means that they can accommodate you even if you have an old Windows phone. So far, so good.

It includes live streaming, replays, expert analyses, news, and a calendar. It also offers notifications, so that you don’t miss out on some cool things. Now, here’s where there’s a snag. The company is in the US and the app is available only to residents in states where gambling is legal. This is commendable, but not of much use to a Brit.

While the bookmaker has received mixed reviews, the app is solid. It is fairly simple to navigate, it covers an impressive array of sports, horse racing included, and easy video streaming. The only issue I do have is that the app versions are somewhat inconsistent, as some versions tend to glitch, which is not what you want during in-game betting. Otherwise, it is a fine app that is easy on the eyes.

If you are a fan of the races in Australia, this is the app for you. It covers races from Victoria and South Australia. It has a calendar and a search function so that you can look up your favourite jockey and horse, as well as the trainer. It works well with Chromecast and it provides its users with quick tips. It’s not without its faults, though. There are several glitches, most annoying of which is the one where the audio plays twice. This is particularly vexing when ads pop up. There are also a few crashes here and there. Hopefully, the next update will fix these issues.
