Sports wagering apps are always convenient for sports bettors. Nevada residents find them useful on a daily basis. Tourists are a bit different and may only find mobile sports wagering apps useful a few times a year.

Super Bowl weekend is one of those times of year all sports bettors should consider using a mobile sports wagering account. This is one of the busiest periods for Nevada sportsbooks. There are approximately 300,000 football fans in Las Vegas alone.

Beware long lines at Las Vegas casinos

Many of the visitors in Nevada are betting on the Big Game. The first weekend of March Madness rivals the Super Bowl but that’s four days of games, not just one. The Super Bowl is the single-most wagered on game every year.

Unfortunately, many of those wagers don’t take place until the weekend. It’s human nature to wait until the last minute to do things. That’s usually fine, but the lines to place wagers on the Super Bowl (or any sport) over the weekend can be very long. We’re talking waits that can be upwards of an hour or more on Super Bowl Sunday.

Mobile apps can save you time and offer better bets

Every minute is precious when a vacation only lasts for 48 to 72 hours. Standing in line waiting to risk money is just silly. Signing up for a mobile sports wagering account takes about 10-15 minutes. The process might even be shorter if the sportsbook operator offers paperwork for new customers online to fill out in advance.

If the wagers placed throughout the weekend are winners, there’s no more waiting in line to fund the account. Some mobile wagering accounts can even be funded online after the initial set up. The amount of time saved by using an app to place sports wagers can secure a great Super Bowl weekend.

Customers may use sports wagering apps anywhere in the state of Nevada. This allows for some additional conveniences. There’s actually no need to be in a sportsbook to place a wager when using an app. Bets can be placed from a hotel room, bar, restaurant or anywhere vacation takes someone. Mobile sports wagering is great whether a bettor wants to spend more time researching or just wants to enjoy the sights and sounds of vacation.

Prop bets and in-game wagering also offered

Sportsbooks offer hundreds of prop bets for Super Bowl. It can be difficult to sift through all of the betting options while standing in line waiting to place wagers at the sportsbook. Some sports bettors prefer researching the prop bets and that might be easiest in a quiet place. Bettors can read the plentiful wagering options on a mobile device and place wagers wherever and whenever.

Bettors using the CG Technology, Station Casinos, and William Hill apps can make wagers throughout the game with In-Play wagering. This is a good option to offset pre-game wagers if the opportunity presents itself. In-Play moneylines, totals, and point spreads will change throughout the Super Bowl. There is plenty of opportunities to place some extra bets.

Sports wagering app recommendations

Every sports bettor is different and has different needs. There isn’t one best sports wagering app. Here are some examples when a specific sports wagering app might be best.

Location: It’s often easiest to fund and cash out sports wagering accounts at the casino where the hotel is located, so review the list of casinos with sports betting apps.

Funding: Some sports wagering apps allow customers to fund accounts via mobile after initially setting up in person. For example, the playMGM app allows mobile reloads after the first in-person deposit.

Prop Bets: Westgate, William Hill, and CG Technologies often have the most options available.

In-Play Betting: CG Technologies, Station Casinos, and William Hill have the most options for in-game wagering.

Sharp Lines: The odds and point spreads at CG Technology, Westgate, and Wynn are often influenced by big money wagers from experienced bettors.

Public Lines: The odds and point spreads at Caesars, MGM, and Station are often influenced by a larger portion of smaller wagers for most popular public sides and events.

Comps: Sports bets via app don’t come with drink tickets. However, Station Casinos will credit Boarding Pass players club accounts with 1 point for every $1 wagered on sports bets. Horse bets will receive 20 points for each $1 wagered.
