Once you’ve got all your food and beverage needs taken care of, there’s one more piece of business to handle so you can fully enjoy Super Bowl 56. It’s time to answer the biggest question remaining: How and where to bet on the Super Bowl?

You’ve studied the matchup and know that the sports betting apps have the favored Los Angeles Rams laying 4-4.5 points to the upstart Cincinnati Bengals. You’re well aware that Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford and Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow are odds-on favorites to win the MVP Award.

But are you in a state where sports betting is legal? And, if so, how and where can you wager for the first time? For many of you, the answers are what you’re hoping to find. You’re in a state where sports betting is legal, and the best part is that you can wager via your mobile phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.

Some of you are reading this in states where sports betting is legal, but online mobile sports betting has yet to launch. In that case, you’re still in luck if you’re within a short drive to a sportsbook located in a casino or another retail location.

And if there’s no sportsbook nearby, maybe you are close to the border of a state that has mobile sports betting. If so, you won’t be the first person to head to another state to place a legal wager before returning home to watch the game. Many a New Yorker crossed the George Washington Bridge to place wagers in New Jersey before mobile sports betting launched in New York last month.

Which States Have Sports Betting Apps?

Mobile sports betting has launched and is live in 19 states and the District of Columbia. It is also legal in Montana, but only if you are wagering while inside one of the state’s retail sports betting locations. Residents in Montana can’t place mobile wagers from their homes.

Best Mobile Sports Betting Apps July 2022

Depending on your location, you may have 20 or more mobile sportsbooks to choose from. Or, if you’re located in a smaller state, you may have just one sportsbook available. If that’s the case, it’s understandable if you look longingly at this summary of the top available sportsbooks.

DraftKings Sportsbook

DraftKings is noted for having the best in-game betting platform, which will be a key factor if you plan on placing wagers during the Super Bowl. As situations change throughout the game, the odds will change as well. When you see a wager you like, having a smooth-running app is imperative. DraftKings offers the best overall betting experience

BetMGM Sportsbook

BetMGM’s app has the highest App Store rating in sports betting. That’s a testament to the app’s stability and the variety of promotions available in conjunction with a great range of bets to consider. After all, a smooth-running app wouldn’t be that much fun if there weren’t ample reasons to utilize it. BetMGM is the best option for new bettors.

Caesars Sportsbook

Caesars is a luxury brand that’s great for both retail bettors and bettors who simply enjoy placing a few wagers to enhance their enjoyment of the game. Caesars Rewards is a great benefit as well, as the tiered program allows you to earn more rewards based on your frequency of wagering on the platform. You’ll find virtually anything you’re looking for on the Caesars sports betting app, including a full slate of prop and parlay bets on the Super Bowl.

BetRivers Sportsbook

BetRivers is great in terms of its $250 matching deposit bonus offer for those registering for a first-time account. And the app’s features are easy to use as well, another important factor when choosing your platform of choice. BetRivers is even better via its website, but you can’t go wrong however you access BetRivers and its welcoming deposit bonus.

FanDuel

FanDuel’s app is great whether using it on an iOS operating system, or an Android-based device. Its odds are competitive across nearly every betting market and the variety leaves you with betting options you hadn’t even considered prior to logging on. International soccer markets are well covered and you can even find odds on everything from table tennis to darts.

How To Register And Fund Your New Mobile Sports Betting Account

If you’re looking to download an app to your account, you can find the sportsbooks app via the App Store (iOS systems) or the Google Play Store if you have an Android device. If using a computer, simply go to the website of choice.

In order to register, you’ll need to provide your full name, email address, mailing address, and the last four digits of your Social Security Number. You’ll also select and answer several security questions – all designed to confirm your identity and protect your account.

Be sure to include the promo code if you haven’t already done so while registering.

Funding options for your account vary between sportsbooks, but all top platforms offer the ability to fund your account via a credit or debit card. You can also link your bank account to your sportsbook account, or add funds via PayPal or a Pay+ Card.
