If you enjoy a bet on the National Hockey League here and there, it’s likely that you’ll be on the look out for the best app or other tool with which to place your wagers. And those who are new to NHL betting, meanwhile, are probably in even more need of a way of placing bets. While sports betting isn’t legal in every state, it’s certainly the case that many US states are now jumping on the gambling bandwagon. For that reason, now might be your first chance to get involved with NHL betting. Whatever your history with this sport, here’s the lowdown on the best apps available out there.
By far one of the best NHL betting apps out there is BetMGM. This app comes with a whole host of services for clients to use, including top quality graphics which provide the perfect augmentation to watching an exciting hockey game.
It’s also known in particular for its wide variety of promotions. It offers, for example, what are known as boosted parlays, which can temporarily improve the odds you receive and hence increase the payout you might receive if your wager turns out to be successful. What’s more, there are also a huge load of other promotions on offer here too. While there’s no guarantee that you’ll be able to access these (and there’s a requirement to follow the terms and conditions), it’s definitely worth exploring what you could be entitled to.
Bovada is known in the industry for being particularly friendly to those who want to bet using cryptocurrencies. This is especially useful for those who can’t or don’t want to use fiat – or “traditional” – currency as their deposits for wagers, perhaps because of concerns around privacy or similar.
There’s also a whole host of different types of bet available on this platform. Those who want to get on NHL futures, for example, can do so – while those who want to bet on the outcomes of live games can also do that. And for those who need extra context, Bovada can provide that through its library of extensive NHL content.
When it comes to NHL betting, many people will want to make sure that they’re getting bang for their buck – and the main way in which this happens is via making odds as competitive as possible. The worse the odds are, the less you’ll win if your bet is successful – and for that reason, many NHL fans who enjoy a wager or two are turning to MyBookie.
MyBookie is known for its relatively competitive odds, and it also provides information about those odds in a direct manner – and with real time updates, too.
Daily fantasy sports
Finally, it’s also worth exploring the prospect of using a daily fantasy sports site. The word of daily fantasy sports is somewhat different to the world of sports betting – although there is some significant overlap. Daily fantasy sports is based around competitions.
As the user, you go through the system by picking a team of your own and putting together different competitors from all the hockey players in the league – an experience which can be fun and rewarding. Any prize money that gets won is derived not through odds but through competitions, which means that it can – in some circumstances – be a little more skills-based than betting can be.
This differs from betting in that there is less focus on specific real life outcomes and more on the competitive side of team-building. It also provides users with a chance to enjoy a more contest-based experience which pits them against other users, and lets them indulge their knowledge of hockey in a more realistic and less specific way.
There are lots of different daily fantasy sports providers out there, although one of the biggest in this regard is DraftKings. Another name that is often heard is FanDuel. If you’re thinking about joining this sort of site, why not research both options – and others – and find the one that has the pricing structure, competition prize level and interface quality that is right for you?
Ultimately, there’s tons of choice out there for anybody who wants to bet on the NHL. From BetMGM to one of the myriad other apps, it’s time to get looking for the NHL betting app that best suits your needs. And with more diverse options like daily fantasy sports also available, there really is something for everyone.
