By now you may have realised one thing. There seems to be an invasion of online casinos into the Indian market. Invasion might be the wrong word as it is more akin to a zombie apocalypse, but the point is that there seems to be a new casino popping up in India every month. The main reason for the influx of casinos is around the tightening of regulations in the more established gambling countries such as Sweden and United Kingdom. Considered once to be prime destinations for gamblers, now restrictions are forcing casinos to look at elsewhere.
What better country to go into than India? India has a population of a billion people with extremely high mobile and internet penetration. More and more Indians are now using their mobile device be it for watching and making videos on social platforms such as Instagram or placing cricket bets on their favourite matches.
However, it is important to note that quantity does not always equal quality. While there may be increased choice now, it is important to make sure that the casino you decide to play at ticks all the right boxes for you. One of the bigger boxes that we always like to make sure is ticked is that of usability. BY usability we refer to the interface of the casino and the ease by which we can navigate to different sections of the site.
India’s Premier Cricket Betting Sites
For this article, we picked one of the premier bookmakers in India – Betway.
Betway is a gaming giant that has been in the industry for close to two decades now. Once you have created an account on Betway, you will find the main menu for the sportsbook to be located on the left-hand side. With this, you can filter down to the sport you are looking to place a bet on be it cricket, hockey, or football to name but a few. Once you have selected the sport, the list of possible bets or wagers becomes available to you along with the odds that each has to offer. From here it is very easy to select the right outcome you want to bet and confirm the bet as well.
One of the best features about using a cricket betting site like Betway to place bets is the ability to change how the odds are displayed. If you navigate to the top bar, you will find an option to toggle the display so that you can view the odds either in American, decimal, or fraction with just one click of the mouse. Personally, we like to see the odds displayed as decimals but with this functionality, you can view as you desire.
For those that have been following this bookmaker will remember the atrocious mobile product they had first come out. The original Betway app for both casino and sports was far from perfect and provided an experience that usually ended with you chucking the phone at the wall.
Thankfully Betway has realised the error of its ways and has improved its mobile offering tremendously. To say the app is now of the best betting apps would not be far from the truth. The app is slick, fast and allows you to jump from one market to another in no time.
In fact, I will go as far as to say that if you have a decent internet connection then it is probably best to enjoy this bookmaker via the app. Train journeys will become even more exciting as you rush to place bets on your favorite cricket matches! The app is smooth and intuitive and allows you to place bets on all sports that are available on the desktop version. Another great feature of the app is the ability to enjoy live streaming of major cricket events as well such as the Indian Premier League (IPL)!
So, in conclusion, we would like to say that Betway operates a site that is easy to use. You can find your favorite cricket matches with only a few clicks. Odds are displayed clear enough and the entire process takes place quite seamlessly. The site also scores high in terms of speed and responsiveness. As long as you have a decent internet connection, you will not have any issues placing bets here. We would like to provide a recommendation and that is the ability to sort by type of wager. This might make it easier for players to find what they are looking for even faster. However, this is just a minor concern for a site that seems to have all other bases covered!
