Betdaq took the online sports betting market by storm since its establishment in 2000. In 2013, the British betting and gambling company Ladbrokes Coral acquired Betdaq for €30 million. Five years later, the leading sports betting and gambling company GVC Holdings bought Ladbrokes alongside its already acquired brands, including Betdaq and other popular brands such as Sportingbet, Eurobet, Party Poker, and others.
Currently, Betdaq is touted to be the second-largest betting exchange that also has a traditional sportsbook product. It offers plenty of betting options to suit a wide variety of tastes. The sportsbook has always been a step ahead of the competition. According to many punters, Betdaq breathes down Betfair’s neck. In this review, we would like to delve deeper into some key aspects of Betdaq’s mobile app.
Betdaq Betting App Features
A leading trend among punters is to use their portable gadgets to place bets. To keep pace with the punters’ demands, Betdaq launched a mobile platform that is compatible with Android and iOS devices. Betdaq looks to impress mobile punters with a mobile app that has much substance. Provided that you have enough storage space on your portable device, you can install the sportsbook’s dedicated app.
Mobile punters can download the app for Android from Google Play, while iOS users can search for the app in the App Store. It is worth mentioning that Betdaq has two separate dedicated apps for its sports betting and exchange betting products.
Based on our experience, it is a pleasure to use the sportsbook app. It loads quickly and works without glitches. It offers a large number of customizable features and a unique search feature. Another advantage of Betdaq’s dedicated app is that mobile punters can easily log into their accounts via fingerprint authentication.
The browser-based app is also worth its salt. If your touchscreen device is running out of storage space, Betdaq’s browser-based app is the perfect solution. All you have to do is to open the browser on your handheld device and load the official website of the sportsbook. It will automatically transfer you to the mobile site that scales with all screen sizes.
At the bottom of your screen, you will see a toolbar where you can find the main menu button. Tapping on it will lead you to links to the inner sections of the mobile sportsbook, including the promotions, football statistics, the customer support department, the sports you can bet on, etc. What further speaks to the caliber of the mobile sportsbook is its well-structured but yet attractive layout. Betdaq’s mobile app offers all the goodies included in its desktop counterpart.

But we have never seen a bookmaker that charges a 0% commission fee on selected markets. In addition to that, the bookmaker offers a variety of betting options on the most popular sports, including soccer, horse racing, tennis, basketball, and others.
The focus on soccer is well-justified. Being the most popular sport globally, the mobile sportsbook offers a plethora of betting options.

BetdaqBetting App Banking
Betdaq’s mobile platform offers a decent range of payment options. However, the bookmaker ensures that every punter’s banking preferences are taken into consideration. It accepts payments via bank cards by Visa and Mastercard, digital wallets by Skrill, Neteller, PayPal, and Revolut, as well as traditional Bank Transfer. Currently, the sportsbook accepts payments only in GBP and EUR.
If you decide to use Betdaq’s mobile sports betting services, you have to know that the minimum amount you can deposit is £10, or the currency equivalent. Assuming that you decide to upload funds using Bank Transfer, your deposit cannot be lower than £200. We will refrain from specifying the maximum limit on deposits as it varies between the payment methods.
On the whole, banking is fast. Most payment solutions carry out deposits on the spot except for Bank Transfer that processes deposits within 3 working days. Withdrawals are carried out within up to 5 business days, depending on the payment solution you opted for.
Provided that you have a sufficient amount in your real cash balance, you can pull out your winnings via the method you used to make a deposit. You can withdraw no less than £10.
