New Zealand Mobile Sports Betting

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-higher.  As a result, mobile network providers have built the infrastructure to deal with demand.  Vodafone, Spark and 2degrees have all developed LTE networks to provide data at the fastest available 4G speeds.

If you have a 4G phone, you can enjoy mobile sports betting at its best through available mobile apps and mobile-optimised websites for all of the betting sites that I’ve included in my list.  Even if you have 3G, you’ll still get a solid experience.  Below, you’ll read a little more about what you can expect with each site’s mobile offerings.  The aps provide a solutions near parity with the traditional online experience.  Several of the mobile sites now allow for deposits, and some even process withdrawals.  A few of the mobile sites are designed to purely to let you place wagers with the money aspect reserved for the traditional site.  If you travel abroad, ensure that you understand your data plan as roaming charges can be extremely expensive.   Where possible, try to login using Wi-Fi.

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-ratings or grades, none of which are ever negative thus always encouraging your play.

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 betting sites to meet for inclusion in the list:
