New Zealand’s population is approximately 4.5 million people and the total number
of mobile subscriptions exceeds 5.4 million making the mobile market penetration
over 120%. In fact, New Zealand beat Australia to the coveted 100% mark. Smartphone
penetration is now about 60% which means the thirst for data is growing ever-
If you have a 4G phone, you can enjoy mobile sports betting at its best through available

BetVictor has a very good mobile betting solution with several of the most popular payment methods available for deposit. If you wish to cash out or withdraw your funds, you will currently need to do this from their regular site.
BetVictor offers a mobile-
If you don’t have an Apple or Android phone, their mobile site is extremely well-
PinnacleBet has a newly refined mobile optimized site which allows for faster loading and quicker navigation of the matches and leagues that you want to find, when you are using a device with a small screen.
You may build your betting ticket without being logged in. If you like the payout, login and place the bets seamlessly. If perhaps you are using a tablet or phone with a larger screen, you might find it just as easy to use the normal version of the site. This would allow for full account administration such as full banking options.
With the mobile version, all the same betting markets are available including live markets. The only real drawback to the mobile version of the Pinnacle Sports site is that there is no way to process deposits or withdrawals. For this, you’ll need to login to the regular version of the site.
Unibet offers a top mobile betting app solution called Unibet Pro with live In-
Unibet Pro apps are available for Microsoft, Android and Apple mobile devices. Unibet also offers separate football stats, tennis live score and TV guide apps.
If you intend to bet from your browser, Unibet offers an old WAP style mobile betting site. If betting with your mobile, I recommend using the apps. If you will not be able to use these apps and expect to bet a lot from your mobile, I would look seriously at some of the better mobile optimised sites.
William Hill has an excellent mobile betting solution with free Android and Apple betting apps that allow for complete account administration including a lengthy list of available mobile deposit and withdrawal method options (see right).
With these apps and their mobile site, all William Hill football betting markets are made available, so there is no drop off compared to their traditional online platform. The apps also give you access to the “Hot List” so you can see who everyone else is backing, so you can get on the bandwagon or go against the crowd.

List Creation Methodology
First, it is good to understand how most sports betting review sites are structured and their motivations to understand how this site is different.
Most review sites will list every sportsbook that they have reviewed. In the end, whether good or bad, the review site is hoping that you recognize the sportsbook brand while inclusion of their brand on the review site is seen as tacit approval.
Review sites that list every sportsbook that they have reviewed truly only care about
visitors clicking through to start betting, not what is in their readers’ best interests.
This also explains why most review sites use bogus rating systems with star-
I’m not interested in this approach and find it to be dishonest. I’m interested in keeping things as simple as possible for my readers. I don’t want you to have to read through 30+ reviews to find the company that matches your needs. I don’t want to confuse you with a bogus rating system. Furthermore, it serves no purpose to review and then rank 30+ sportsbooks. Would you read through this many reviews and then select betting site #26? That’s ridiculous.
This is why my list is essentially black and white, companies are in it the list, or not in and they are in alphabetical order. I only have one important point of distinction for the sites included in my list: Those that offer direct New Zealand Dollar Sports betting accounts are listed at the top. For interested bettors that have no issues with the currency to be used, I also include three other sites that do not offer NZD betting but offer an excellent overall experience.
Here is the criteria for all sportsbooks to meet for inclusion in the list:
Rugby Union Mobile Betting
Cricket Mobile Betting
