The Smarkets app has a range of features available to users, including:
The ability to quickly edit the links to your favourite categories on the homepage of the app.
The Smarkets Exchange offers a range of sports markets to trade on.
Users can track the trades of live in-play events.
Live streaming available for some events, for customers with funded accounts.
The Smarkets mobile version contains all of the same features as the Smarkets exchange app, they are just arranged differently. Just one Smarkets login is required for customers to access the app, mobile and desktop versions.
Features of the mobile version include:
- A range of in-play markets, some with live streams available.
- Quick links to popular markets.
- Live streaming of some events for customers with a positive account balance.
The Smarkets exchange app and Smarkets mobile site allow the same login to be used across the desktop, app and mobile version of Smarkets, so customers only need to register an account once.
Both the Smarkets app and mobile site contain the same markets for bettors to trade on, but the two are set out very differently in terms of layout. The app allows for more opportunities for users to personalise their home screen, for example, and the A-Z of sports and customers’ account information are both more readily available than on the mobile site. However, both are relatively intuitive, so which is best may be down to personal preference.
Promotions in the Smarkets app are few and far between. At the time of writing, there were no promotions available for existing customers via the app.
There is a promotion for new customers, of 0% commission for the first 60 days.
At Smarkets, you can access live streaming of a limited selection of events via the app. We found only a few horse races available to live stream whilst reviewing the app. In addition to this, only customers with a funded Smarkets account can watch live streams.
In-play betting is available for a range of sports in the Smarkets app, including football, horse racing, tennis, basketball, cricket, Esports, snooker, volleyball and ice hockey.
Some of these events have changing graphics allowing punters to track the action, and stats on the trades that have been made on them, up to the current time. Fewer still offer users the ability to watch the event live, provided they have a positive account balance.
The Smarkets app offers customers a bet builder function. To use it, customers simply log in to the Smarkets app and navigate to the event they would like to bet on. Once users have tapped on the event name, they will then see the Bet Builder tab. Tapping on this allows users to browse the available selections for the bet builder. These include full time result, both teams to score, first goalscorer, total corners, correct score, and odd or even score.
Users can tap on the odds of the selections they would like to bet on, to tap ‘add to multiple’ to add them to their multiple bet slip at the bottom of the screen. Customers can then enter their stake and review their selections, before finally tapping the green ‘Place Trade’ button, to confirm their bet.
The Smarkets app does not have any mobile games available for users to play.
