How to get the TVG app new customer bonus

First of all, hit the button above to be taken straight to the TVG mobile app. This will work on desktop and from all mobile devices, be that cell phone or tablet. Register for your free account using promo code RISKFREE1 when prompted. You will now have qualified for the bonus on the account you have just set up.

How to download the TVG Android app

The TVG app can be located as a web application from any mobile device capable of connecting to a web browser.  There is no dedicated TVG Android app at present, due to Google not allowing real money gambling apps in their stores across the USA. Follow the below steps on your mobile to install.

  1. On your mobile – Click here to access the TVG mobile site
  2. Tap the menu on your phone and select “add to home screen”
  3. Register as a new customer to get your bonus
  4. Start using the mobile app/ quick link whenever you want to access TVG

However, Google has opened up to gambling apps in the Play Store across Europe so we only see it as a matter of time before it is also available from within the USA. Watch this space! As soon as it is available we will update this page to keep you informed.

Android users can access the TVG mobile website from the link above, which hosts exactly the same features as the dedicated app found for iOS.

If you are using an Apple product, you have the choice of either downloading the dedicated TVG app on to your iPhone or iPad or using the TVG web-based app and adding that to your device’s home screen from within the Safari menu. There is no real difference either from using the iPhone app or the iPad app, in terms of features.

The dedicated app found in the app store tends to give a slightly slicker performance, but takes up memory on your device and also seems to be more prone to crashing. Whereas the mobile app saved on to your home screen takes up minimal storage space but is a little clunkier.

App Review

There is a distinct ‘Royal Blue’ theme attached to the TVG app and this very much hits you straight away. Quite a stark contrast from the more traditional Green TVG was previously renowned for. A fresh update to the interface has made navigation much smoother as well as a much better quality visual experience.

The fact you can watch the racing and view markets at the same time really gives you an edge on those last-minute selections and placing a bet from within the bet slip is a quick and seamless experience.

Here is how the app looks when downloaded on the iPhone.

There’s help on hand with handy handicap information, Pro’s tips to view and time-form US statistics to back up your selections. You can watch the races you are wagering on, view probables and even make amendments to your selections no matter where you maybe thanks to the TVG mobile app.

I think from the review so far it would be plainly obvious that if you are a big NFL, NBA, NHL fan etc. this probably won’t be the best wagering app for you. If you have a real interest in horse racing then we would recommend looking no further than the TVG app.

Live streaming at TVG

What stands the TVG app apart from its competitors is the number of races you can live stream through the app, on mobile or tablet. TVG has access to races from over 150 race tracks around the world and you can stream them all. If you want to watch the Kentucky Derby then you can, if you want to watch the Cheltenham Festival from the UK then you can, the list goes on and on. This really is the ultimate app for horse racing betting fans.

Archived races

In January 2019 TVG made the announcement that they would allow access to their full history of racing streams! You can now find a horse and go back and watch its previous runs. You can search by the following to find a race you want to watch –

  • The date and time of the race
  • The name of the horse
  • Previous races at the track
  • Your preset favorites

Here is how it looks on your tablet

TVG race replays

To watch the streams you need to be logged in to your account. Below the video, you can see the final race card of the race you are watching as well as the odds they were at the start of the race. There is also other information such as the jockey, form, age and the trainer.

Looking back at older races is a good way to build up your knowledge of horses and help you with your future bets.

The TVG app is available to all those who live in states where gambling is legal. However, there are dedicated apps for certain states in order to conform to differing state laws. This will not affect you if you have an Android device or if you access TVG from your mobile browser on your iOS device, as your mobile browser will automatically route you to the correct branding. But if you are looking for a dedicated app on your iPhone or iPad it will.

Depending on which state you reside, you may actually have to install a dedicated state branded TVG app. Please see below for a list of states eligible for a TVG account. You will also find states whereby TVG are offering dedicated state gambling apps.

How to bet on triple crown races

For those who are not accustomed to the whole betting experience, we will keep it very simple. There are three main bets that are placed on these types of races.

  1. To win – Selected horse must win the race outright.
  2. To place – Selection must finish either first or second.
  3. To show – Horse picked must finish the race in either first, second or third.

Best payouts are obviously located on the ‘to win’ bets as there is a greater risk involved here. However big returns still are achieved from place and show bets, especially if the horse being selected lies outside of the favorites.

If you are feeling ‘extra lucky’, you may wish to place an exacta bet. This is where you not only predict which horse will win but also which horse will finish second. No margin of error allowed here so both horses need to finish where predicted. A big ask to get these sorts of bets right, but big payouts when people do!
