Odds on Mobiles

David Murphy

Om_pdsTEAMtalk Media Group has announced the launch of Oddschecker Mobile, which replicates the odds-checking service offered on the oddschecker.com website, on mobile phones.
Oddschecker continually checks UK bookmaker odds, enabling users to obtain the best price for their chosen bet. Oddschecker Mobile will cover markets in horse racing, football, tennis, golf, rugby union, cricket, greyhound racing, American football and boxing, in addition to specials and novelty bets.
The service has been launched to cater for the growing trend towards mobile betting, with many keen gamblers now making their bets on the move, either via mobile internet or call centres. It means that seven of the 22 betting sites covered by Oddschecker.com, including, Ladbrokes, Sporting Odds and Blue Square, can now be accessed from a mobile phone.
The site, which can be accessed at wap.oddschecker.com, is essentially a slimmed down version of the Oddschecker.com website, with a new Autobet function that enables members to place bets and manage their accounts with seven different bookmakers.
Oddschecker is hugely popular with betting fans, as it offers one-touch access to all of the major online bookmakers in the UK, allowing users to compare their odds for an array of different events, says Oddscheckers Simon Miller. This service should prove to be hugely popular as speed and convenience are even more important to the mobile user.
TEAMtalk Media Group Chairman Peter Dubens adds:
Oddschecker is proving to be a very valuable asset to the content network. It now has in excess of 300,000 regular monthly users, which has more than doubled over the last two years. With the launch of Oddschecker Mobile, we are continuing to strengthen our offering in the mobile market.
