William Hill Contributes to Growth of Mobile Gaming with New Ipad App
William Hill, a name commonly associated with bookmaking, announced the introduction of a new iPad app on December 18th, 2012.
This innovative app was designed specifically for the Mobile sports betting enthusiast who enjoys placing a wager while on the go. Best of all, it allows players to bet on a number of sports and events all found on the William Hill Internet site. What’s different about this app is that it incorporates more in-play markets than any others with great odds on British and Irish Horse Racing as well. It also offers quick access to bets and top pick lists so that users can get an indication about which teams punters are backing without having to conduct extensive research.
The unveiling of the iPad app comes after the gaming industry welcomed William Hill’s iPhone Casino app which has already received more than 550,000 downloads since it was introduced in February of this year. In fact, it’s become the most popular wagering app to date.
It comes as no surprise that Juergen Reutter, Director of Mobile operations for the giant William Hill, commented that mobile Betting has really caught on and continues to grow. Customers have been asking for William Hill to create a certain app for the iPad and this, he said, is the best app for sports gamblers. He added that whether the app is used as a second screen while watching a game on the television at home or for wagering while on the go, it’s definitely going to become everyone’s favourite choice.
Today, placing a bet on the Internet has become the norm and it’s still growing in popularity. App wagering now comprises 30% of William Hill’s online sports gambling and the forecast is that it’s expected to go up to 50% in the coming years.
The good news is that iPad users who choose William Hillfor their gaming will have the opportunity to place wagers on 1,001 football leagues, on numerous divisions of Cup competitions from 97 different nations across the globe (from the Barclays Premier League to the Premier Football league of Pakistan).
The iPad app benefits from the iPad’s big screen and is therefore able to show more information and provide links to any number of sports from any screen. iPad users can touch the screen and go to the right to gain access to the bet slips and glance at all the open wagers for fast reference.
