Sports betting is popular around the world. The amount of money that is being wagered is staggering. The number of ways that bets can be placed on different sporting events is also growing. There was a time when the only way to place a legal bet was to go to a horse racing track and place a bet in person. Off track betting and sports books at casinos were eventually added and allowed people to bet on various sporting events besides horse races. Now there are apps that allow you to get the information that you need about a sporting event and allow you to place a bet on any event that you want through a mobile device.
One of the ways to use a Windows mobile device to place bets on sporting events in Australia is through the use of TAB. For windows it is the TAB.mobi app that needs to be accessed and set up. It is actually very easy to get started and to take advantage of what the TAB app has to offer.
- Using the internet browser, navigate to the Tab.mobi site
- Existing account users can sign into their account
- New users will need to create an account
- To create a new account, click on the sign in and select the join now option
- Fill in the required information that includes:
- Mobile number
- Create a password
- Date of Birth
- Choose a betting pool (either NSW or VIC)
- Create a pin
- Agree to the terms and conditions
- Fund the account
The last step of funding the account requires some form of electronic payment. Several different methods are available that include credit card, BPay, TAB retail outlets and other methods many of which can be instantly credited to the account. Once the account is funded it is possible to set up the bets for the account.
TAB allows people to bet on many different sporting events in Australia. Horse racing, greyhound racing, AFL, cricket, golf soccer, rugby and many other sports can all be bet on once the account has been established.
When setting up an account the minimum deposit amount is $20. The minimum bets that can be placed are $0.50 for racing; $1.00 for online, Speech Express and Touch-tone phone sports wagers and $10.00 for wagers over the phone with an operator. Any winnings can be paid through Electronic Funds Transfer, TAB Retail Outlets, Check or Money Order. The bookmaker charge is 6.1% and there is a $5.50 monthly account management fee.
When it comes to placing bets, it is very simple. The odds for all of the events are displayed on your Windows mobile device. You can place a bet by choosing the bet option for an event and entering the amount that you want to bet. It is also possible to initiate the withdrawal through the online app.
The app is a great way to place bets in Australia, but it does not guarantee a person will be able to make the right choices and always pick winners. That is what makes it so exciting.
