BetRivers Illinois mobile sports betting app
BetRivers Illinois also has a dedicated sports betting app that players can install on their iOS and Android devices. This way, you can place bets on the go without having to stay glued to a desktop computer screen. Besides, the app gives you a chance to stay up-to-date with your bets.
Several things make the BetRivers mobile app a good choice for Illinois players. First, it is easy to use and has a minimalistic design. The base color theme of the mobile app is the same as the desktop site, with a blue and yellow color palette.
At the top left of the app, you will see a hamburger icon that you can click to display the main menu. You will be able to browse through the different sports available and select your preferred betting market.
The operator is constantly adding additional features and functions to the app to make things easier for players. You can receive push notifications to stay updated with your bets and the latest promotions.
Besides that, the app comes with all the same features as the desktop site. This means you can place live bets, stream some matches, use the buy-out feature, and so on.
Security of the app
They use the latest encryption technology to ensure that all players’ personal information is kept safe and secure. They also have partnered with Thawte, a globally recognized security company, to ensure that all transactions are safe and secure.
They also partner with companies like GeoComply, a world-leading provider of geo-location services, to ensure that players are only accessing the app within IL. BetRivers also holds a valid license from the Illinois Gaming Board and is regularly audited to ensure their security measures are up to date.
The BetRivers Illinois betting app, which supports iOS and Android versions, is 76.8 MB for iOS and 20 MB for Android. The app works on tablets, but the size of the app may vary depending on the device. They provide customer service via email, telephone, and chat options. They also offer a comprehensive FAQ section on their website. Additionally, they provide extensive tutorials on how to use the app and how to take advantage of the various betting markets.
BetRivers does not track your data, but they do collect information about your betting activity for their own analytics. This information is supposed to be anonymous and is used to improve the app and provide you with personalized betting advice.
How to download the BetRivers app on iOS
If you are an iPhone or iPad user, you can download the BetRivers iOS app easily on your device to access the betting platform. Simply visit the App Store and search BetRivers Sportsbook.
From the result, choose the BetRivers app and install it on your device. You should note that you must be in the Prairie State to download and use the app. This is because the operator uses geo-tracking software. If you are in a state or country where the sportsbook is not legal, you may be unable to access and download the app.
Another way to easily get the BetRivers iOS app is to click on the download for iOS button on the download page of the operator. This will take you directly to the page on the App Store, where you can complete the download.
How to download the BetRivers app on Android
Downloading the sportsbook's Android app is also pretty straightforward. You can download it directly from the Google Play store. To do this, search BetRivers Sportsbook Illinois on the Play Store and click on the Install button.
Once the app downloads and installs fully, you will see the icon among your other apps, and you can start using it. You can also click the Download for Android on the sports betting site to redirect you to the Play Store.
For some reason, if you want to download the APK file and go the long route, you will need to first configure your device settings to allow apps from third parties. After that, you can download the APK file and launch the package installer once complete.
This will install the app on your device, and it is ready to use. As with the iOS app, you may be unable to use the BetRivers Android app if you are in a location where the betting site is not licensed.
As part of our BetRivers sportsbook review, we checked what users are saying about the mobile app. At the time of writing, the iOS app has a 2.4 rating and over 88 ratings on the App Store. While some of these reviews are negative, most are positive reviews. The operator has kept improving the app by releasing updates from time to time.
When the iOS app was first launched, a lot of complaints were about user-friendliness and speed. However, with the latest update, many users now claim that it is much better and easier to use than some other sports betting apps in the state.
The Android app also has a fairly good rating now. Most of the reviews show that the app works pretty well and has decent features. But as expected, there is no perfect platform. A few players point out their frustrations, mostly centered on the interface and a few bugs.
Some of the most common complaints about the app have been about the lack of accessibility, such as the comment, “I have to type my password in every time with this app, also no biometrics login. Every other sportsbook has these features”.
Some users also complained about the claim that “support has not helped and has left me without follow-up for days and weeks at a time. I am very disappointed in this app and its support.”
However, others claim that “BetRivers is consistently a great app, it’s easy to use and quickly processes whatever I need to do,” and that “it's convenient because you don't have to go all the way to the casino to place a bet you can do it on your phone”.
However, they have released several updates to fix these issues. This explains why the rating keeps shooting up, with more Prairie State gamblers satisfied with the Android app features and functions.
