William Hill USA App: One of the Best
As one of the world's largest bookmakers, William Hill has already secure licenses to operate in ninety percent of the states that have legal sports betting. But you can't bet through the app in all of these states. Currently, William Hill has an official app for only three states:
- New Jersey
You can download each of these apps from the official William Hill USA website. Just find your state from the list and click the Download button. The apps are available for both Android and iOS. But before you download anything, make sure you meet the system requirements. You need to have at least Android 7.0 or newer version or iOS 10.0 or later. For Android users, the link on the website won't lead you to the Play Store like you expected. You will be redirected to another page in which you can follow the instructions and download the app. After your download is ready, sign in with your William Hill account details or create a new account if you don't have one yet.
The design of these apps is elegant and efficient. We expect nothing less from this gaming giant. The app design for the US apps is nothing new it's the same as the UK one. Through the app, you can access all the services you need for an excellent gaming experience. With the help of GeoComply, the app will only allow you to bet if you are within any of the listed states.
When it comes to mobile offers, William Hill is on top. They offer mobile-exclusive sign-up bonuses and regular offers. With the app, you have access to all the available betting markets, so you don't have to worry about missing any Football matches to bet on. Just like on the desktop version, William Hill offers a wide array of NFL betting options and markets. They even provide Special Outright markets, for example, 2020 Season MVP.
FanDuel App: Interesting Features, Definitely Recommended
Since Britain's Paddy Power acquired FanDuel, an official sportsbook was released for New Jersey and Pennsylvania. For now, the sportsbook app is only available for iOS devices. You can download it from the official App Store. The app has a lot of the features offered by the desktop version, such as:
- Cash Out
- In-Game Betting
- Round Robins
The app design is sleek and easy-to-use. Everything you need is located in easy to find places
As an NFL fan, the available markets and promotions offered for the sports would be the first thing I look at when deciding which app to download. FanDuel offers a steady amount of markets that we guarantee you would be happy with. There are exclusive promotions for the app, which are different from the websites'. Currently, the bonuses on both the website and app are generally for betting. There are no NFL promos even though last year's estimated amount spent for Super Bowl wagers were over $150 million. Maybe in the future, they will release more NFL related promotions to attract more people.
BetMGM App: We were Impressed
BetMGM is a big player in the online sports betting field. They have earned their place in the US market. Ranked as one of the top apps for residents of Nevada (only Nevada, for now), the playMGM Nevada Sports app is available for both iOS and Android. If you're using an iPhone or iPad, go to the App Store and download the app from there. If you use an Android device, you have to visit the official MGM Resorts website and download it from there. Before you are able to download it, you need to tick off the “Unknown Sources” setting so your device can download and install the app from the website.
The playMGM app registration process is not as simple as you might think. To sign-up for an account you have to visit one of the following MGM Resorts locations in Las Vegas:
- New York New York
- Park MGM
- The Mirage
- MGM Grand
- Mandalay Bay
- Circus Circus
Also, another registration condition is that you must pay a minimal initial deposit of $100 in person when opening the account. The next deposits can be made online, too, using the playMGM pre-paid card.
Our interests are the NFL markets and special offers. Like on the site, you can wager on all Football events, not only the NFL. You can bet on every NFL game pre-game and but you can only bet on select games in-play. You can also wager on NFL Divisions and College Football.
DraftKings Sportsbook App: Good Enough
As one of the most popular DFS and betting companies “on this side of the pond,” DraftKings' online sports betting is expanding every day. For now, there are only three states in which you can legally wager. These states are:
- New Jersey
- West Virginia
If you are physically located in any of the mentioned states, you can freely use the DK Sportsbook app to bet on your favorite NFL teams. You do not have to be a resident of any of these states to play. Even if you are just visiting for a few days, you can enjoy legal mobile sports betting by DraftKings. The app doesn't cost anything. You can get it for free. It's available for both Android and iOS. iPhone users can get it on the App Store while Android users have to get it from the official DK website. There is also a third option. Once you go to the mobile app page of the site, you can enter your phone number, and DK will send you a direct download link to your phone. This feature is something we don't see very often when it comes to sports betting.
There is also an exclusive new use bonus for mobile users. After you register and make your first deposit, you instantly get 20% of your deposit (up to $500) in bonus funds. As an additional reward, you get a risk-free bet of up to $200. All Bonuses require a turnover, though. For more details, check my account page after you sign up. DraftKings offers exclusive NFL promos. You need to check out. For example, the Offensive Defense or Football Parlay Insurance promotions. The attractive and diverse NFL markets you can bet on are:
- Team/Game Props
- Team/Player Futures
- Halves and Quarters
- Game Lines/Parlays
You can also bet on fantasy football or create your fantasy football league and compete in different tournaments.
888 Sport USA App
888 Sport is another large bookmaker that offers online sports betting in America. Unfortunately, the mobile app is only available for punters physically located in the state of New Jersey. It's not necessary to be a resident to play. Like other popular apps, 888 Sport Mobile is available for both Android and iOS. You can get the links from the 888 Sports website. For fans of the iOS, the link will send you to the App Store. If you have an Android device, though, you have to download the app directly from the site. But before that, make sure that you have turned on the correct setting.
- Go to Settings->Applications
- Check the Unknown Sources box
- Download the .apk file
Unlike other betting apps, you don't have to register at a physical location. You can do it from the app.
888 Sport offers a wide array of NFL markets to choose from. Some of them are:

Especially attractive is their NFL bonus called “Double Your Winnings.” Every day you have the chance to win up to $25 if you bet on ant NFL match with odds of at least +100. Check back every day or turn on your mobile notifications to get more exclusive offers.
PointsBet is a relatively new but very innovative company. Despite their lack of experience, they are quickly climbing on the US online bookmaker ladder. With their innovative “points betting,” they bring you a new high-risk high-reward feature that will get you addicted even more. Currently, the app is only available for people who are physically located in New Jersey. You can download it from their website if you are an Android user (follow the instructions carefully) or from the App Store for the iOS users out there.
The company is closely affiliated with the NFL. The retired cornerback Darrelle Revis partnered up with PointsBet to bring you a library of educational betting videos. You can access it through the app too. The number of promotions that are related to the NFL is surprisingly many. Here is a list of some of them:
- Make it Rain: NFL Edition
- TNF NFL PointsBetting Promo
- NCAAF First Touchdown Early Payout
- -105 Spreads on ALL NFL Games
- First Touchdown Early Payout for Thursday Night & Monday Night NFL Games
These promos are valid for the desktop as well as the mobile app. There is also an Exclusive Rewards Program you can qualify for and get some cool rewards.
Overall the app is well-designed and easy-to-use. You can quickly place your wagers and focus on enjoying the match. The addition of Pointsbetting makes your bets even more exciting.
Unibet is one of the most known operators worldwide. If you already have an account, your login details should work on the new website/app. There are available apps for both iOS and Android.

- Both Teams to Score Points in Every Quarter
- Each Defense/Special Teams to Score a TD
- Each QB +500 Passing Yards
Another fun fact is that many of the daily promotions and boosts are sponsored by a different VIP each day.
For now, FOX Bet is only available in two states – New Jersey and Pennsylvania. We expect an expansion shortly because online and mobile sports betting is booming in America right now.
