What other promotions do they have on offer?
Mobilebet offers the minimum amount as a free bet there are no other ongoing promotions on the site for new and existing customers. Other UK internet sportsbooks offer enhanced odds and free bets for several sports and leagues. Mobilebet have not invested in promotions to acquire customers but claim to focus on high odds that will attract the more discerning bettor.
Mobilebet will get new accounts if they offer attractive odds and free bets are secondary as a method of finding new customers. They are also not an established brand and online betting is dominated by UK based operators such as the relatively young bet365 and more established bookmakers such as William Hill, Ladbrokes and Coral. Mobilebet are entering a crowded market but free bets are not used as the main method to get new accounts.
They also promote a quiz which gives one customer £10 in the form of a free bet each week. The quiz is posted on Twitter and is easy to enter. However, one free £10 bet is unlikely to attract new customers or prompt inactive players to deposit betting funds. In fact the promotions are offered by Mobilebet are a negative but the company use other methods to generate new accounts.
The operator claims to provide a unique betting experience but nothing is exceptional on the site. The Welcome Offer is not very appealing and the range of promotions is limited. Higher odds will attract the more shrewd customers who like to take the best price and get the best odds. Mobilebet competes on its odds and virtually ignores competing on the basis of free bets and bonuses.
There is a recent trend to present gambling as a social activity. This has been done to get away from some of the negative aspects of betting. Mobilebet have staff who Tweet during matches to proved real time scores and results once an event has finished. Interaction is encouraged to get away from betting as a solitary activity and make it appear ore social and responsible. However, the value in the odds counts more for more professional orientated customers who are not concerned about free bets.
Mobilebet Betting Markets and Margins
Mobilebet provides odds for more than 30 sports in addition to chess, virtual sports and Specials. The range of sports compares favourably with other offers and some obscure sports are included. The range of sports suggests the company is looking to exploit new markets in Europe away from the UK and options include surfing, trotting and pasapallo which are not popular in the UK. Betting on E-Sports is growing and Mobilebet covers the major leagues and fixtures in China and internationally.
Sports are listed in no particular order but Popular Events are shown at the top of the sports page. These are mainly popular football leagues and generally include the Premier League, some minor leagues in England and the main league in. Scotland. Other popular sports listed in this way include racing, tennis and baseball. Most bets are taken for football and the most popular betting league in the English Premier League which is the most followed and viewed division in any sport.
The English Premier League is the most popular betting league globally. Mobilebet offers up to 100 markets related to the match odds including handicaps, totals and the correct score. Customers can bet on up to 30 markets in a tennis match and the main ones are the outright winner, correct set score, handicaps and totals. Mobilebet customers can bet on horse racing in the UK and Ireland. The site features many ante post markets for the upcoming major races.
The odds for a typical football match in the English Premier League are as follows:
Manchester City 5/6
The percentage value of these odds is calculated in this way:
100 divided by ((5 divided by 6) plus 1) = 54.55%
100 divided by ((27 divided by 10) plus 1) = 27.03%
100 divided by ((3 divided by 1) plus 1) = 25.00% TOTAL = 106.58% MARGIN = 6.58%
This potential bookmaker profit is smaller than some others on the market but the margins are not exceptional and other bookmakers offer better value. Margins are more in favour of the bookmaker for matches in the more obscure leagues.
Odds for a typical two-way market for the winner of a tennis match are as follows:
Roberto Bautista v Kyle Dustin Brown
Player 1 – 1/1
Player 2 – 5/6
These odds can be converted into percentages using the following calculation:
100 divided by ((1 divided by 1) plus 1) = 50.00%
100 divided by ((5 divided by 6) plus 1) = 54.55%
TOTAL = 104.55% MARGIN = 4.55% This margin is typical but the odds are not exceptional and would not be significant in attracting new customers. Other companies that do not offer lucrative free bets tend to offer better odds for the customer but Mobilebet’s margins are standard.
