Big Bet World iOS app launched – Apple devices finally supported
At last the day has come, Big Bet World has presented its iOS app to the public. Available on Apple iPhone or iPad and building on the success of their Android app, we were interested to see if they managed to retain all the quality features and excellent user interface in the iOS version as well. We are happy to announce they managed to accomplish just that.
Looking at the features found in the iOS app you can see all that makes BigBetWorld great on desktop is found here as well. Naming just the most important ones already creates quite a list:
01 All markets, all offers, all bets
iOS app is not limited in any way regarding match and bet variety. Everything offered on the main website can also be found in the app, under the same category. BigBetWorld offers an incredible number of special bet types, often more than 500 per single event. And if you can’t make up your mind, you can even see the most popular or last minute bets made by other players and follow their lead.
02 Pre-match and live betting, live match feed
You can place your bets either before the match starts, or after. The selection of matches you can bet on live is quite extensive and you can even watch some of them in a live feed, although not as many as we would want.
03 Optimized UI for fast browsing and bet placing
Due to specific limitations, mobile devices require a different approach compared to desktop applications. iOS app has a specially designed user interface, which allows players to browse and place bets smoothly and quickly.
04 Superpay bonus with up to 80% bonus on your winnings
The feature we like the most in BigBetWorld can also be found in the iOS app. All Superpay bonus requirements and features remain the same on the mobile as on the desktop, the more combinations you play, the higher the bonus.
05 Integrated cashier with latest security standards
Beside placing bets, players can also manage their account finances directly in the app. Deposits and withdrawals can be made from the app itself and are secured by the latest mobile security and encryption standards
06 Manage your account, limits, betting and transaction history
Players can use the iOS app to change or review their account settings and set specific limits if so desired. The whole betting and transaction history can also be found there, so you are always in control of your own account.
07 Available in English and German languages
You can choose set one of these two languages as a default language in the app. The change is instant and does not require a restart. Every part of the app is translated, and uses the correct sports betting terminology players are accustomed to.
08 Licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA)
The same regulation body governing the website has licensed the iOS app as well. This ensures all the background processes and systems are fair and comply with the laws, policies and rules of the Malta Gaming Authority.

Big Bet World cashier –
easy deposits and fast withdrawals
You can make deposits and withdrawals using the cashier integrated in the app itself. The process is very simple and you can start it by clicking on the wallet icon in the upper right corner. There you select either deposit or withdrawal. Deposit options you can choose from are: credit card, Sofort, Skrill, Neteller, Paysafe or bank transfer. Minimum deposit is 10 EUR for all methods except bank transfer, where the minimum is 50 EUR. Withdrawals on the other hand can be made on the credit card you already used for deposit or wire transfer. Whatever you choose, no transaction costs are involved.
How to claim your 100 EUR Big Bet bonus
As a new player you are entitle to a 100% up to 100 EUR welcome bonus on your first deposit. The process by itself is very simple, but it does require some additional effort on Apple mobile devices. After you make your first deposit you have to claim the bonus by contacting the support. On desktop you could use the live chat feature and receive the bonus instantly. As this option is not yet available on iOS app (but it should be included in one of the upcoming upgrades), you have to contact the support either via email or by telephone. In case you do not wish to claim the bonus just do nothing and start betting. But keep in mind, if you start betting with your first deposit, the bonus can no longer be issued to your account.
How Big Bet World iOS app performs
in the real world – usability test
We tested the most common scenario a typical sports betting player would encounter on iPhone or iPad. Placing bets as the main activity was extremely simple. This is where the lessons learned on land based terminals really shine through. Players are presented with a list of available sports, coupled with large and easy to press buttons. After you select the sport, you choose between different national leagues or competitions, again presented with large icons.
This tree structure continues to the desired match itself, where all the different bet types can be found. Beside the more ordinary bet types, such as outright winner, 1st half goals, number of corners per half time and similar, Big Bet World offers an incredible amount of special bet types, such as first ten minutes 3way or halftime double chance. The number of such bet types can go up into the hundreds, and it is not unusual to see a match with over 500 different bet types to choose from.
Everything is designed to be as easy as possible on touch screens, so the whole process is painless even on the smaller mobile phone screens. Every bet type you choose is placed automatically on the bet slip, which you can review at any time. When you are satisfied with the selection you click on the bet slip and set desired stake amount. Here players also choose between single, combination or system bet ticket. All through this process players have the information about the possible winning, Superpay bonus, total odds and other statistics, which are updated instantly.
All in all, the whole process is incredibly easy, thanks to the intuitive user interface. Every match, every bet type, every bet slip detail is at your fingertips and it makes perfect sense, down to the positioning of the icons. We honestly have to say this user interface is among the best we ever seen on Apple devices, hopefully the competition will take it as an example and learn a thing or two.
Management of your Big Bet World account in iOS app
You have full control over your personal account from the app, so there is no need to use the account management on desktop, if you do not wish to. Beside the more common settings you can change, such as display language, odds type (decimal, fractional, American) or how events are displayed, you can also change your password or activate self-exclusion, if you feel you lost control. Needless to say you can always review your personal details and account status, which due to legislative reasons cannot be changed though. All of these options can be found in the settings menu in the upper left corner, where you can also find shortcuts to the integrated cashier, legal notifications and a log out option.
