Vernons Sports app
The Vernons Sports app is a brand new betting app available throughout the UK. This well-trusted name in gambling has been around since the 1920s. They have gained a credible reputation over the years due to their involvement with the Football Pools. Now they have introduced a dedicated online sports betting platform. Now you can place bets from the comfort of your own home and on the move with Vernons.
There is an Android app as well as an iPhone app. However, there are no dedicated apps currently within the app store. Instead, you will need to visit the mobile optimised site (available from this page). Once there you then need to save the Vernons Sports online home page to your device’s home screen. This is illustrated in the images below.
Vernons Sports app review
Register for a free account
Before you can bet on the Vernons Sports app you will need to register for an account. All the usual details are required when setting up an online betting account such as name, address, contact details and payment details if you wish to deposit in to your account straight away. Once you have joined you will then be able to bet across the array of sports and markets, as well as get involved with all the latest promotions.
How does it look?
The Vernons Sports app is a relatively new player when it comes to mobile betting apps, but has made an impressive start by offering a very stable and pleasant looking platform right from the off. The app isn’t the slickest available, but it uses more than satisfactory graphics and logos and everything is spaced out making information stand out and easy to read.
All of the different sports are available from an icon menu at the top of the Vernons Sports app, as well as a tabbed menu for In-Play, promotions, today’s horse racing, upcoming race markets, top bets and anything else that is popular at that given moment in time.
Adding selections to your bet-slip is achieved by a simple tap of the odds on the selection you like the look of and accumulators/multiple bet options are easy to understand and sit beneath your individual selections within the online bet-slip. You can see some screenshots of Vernons Sports app below.
We expect new features to get added over time but as a starting point we think the Vernons Sports app is very respectable indeed. It is missing live streaming and cash out options so if these features are important to you, we would recommend looking elsewhere for your betting app solution. If these features are not we would highly recommend giving the app a try.
Android vs iOS vs Windows mobile
In terms of differences between mobile operating systems, at this point there are none. The Vernons Sports Android app, Vernons Sports iPhone app or any other Vernon Sports mobile app all run from the same mobile optimised web page. This may change if Vernons decide for whatever reason to provide dedicated apps for certain mobile operating systems.
Value for money
Odds offered are competitive and promotions are spread across many sports and markets. There is pretty much something available for every type of customer. There are even dedicated casino and bingo sections if you fancy wandering away from the sports scene too! On top of that, you also get a more comprehensive desktop version when at home on your desktop or laptop. This version utilises the bigger screen, offering you more at a glance and more personalised markets. This is how the platform looks on desktop.
Promotions occur now and then that offer extra value on top of the normal offering. A recent example of this would be accumulator insurance across six-folds to ten-folds. So if you were let down by one leg, you would get your money back (up to the maximum value of £50) as a free bet. There are also regular offers dedicated to tennis, snooker, rugby and more.
Vernons are also one of the few companies who offer consistent money back offers on the Premier League Darts. It is worthwhile checking in every now and then just to check the promotions tab out on the Vernons Sports app. Offers do have a tendency to come and go so frequent visits can avoid missed opportunities. Most offers are available to both new and existing customers when they are available.
Therefore, if you haven’t already registered and there isn’t an offer on currently (or there isn’t an offer that takes your fancy at that particular moment in time) we wouldn’t recommend holding out on registering. The general offering is fair in our opinion across the board. If you are looking to bet with Vernons right away, you can only do so once you have registered.
Adding and removing funds
Depositing and withdrawing funds is just as easy as any other betting app available and the customer support options are always on hand if you get stuck. Phone numbers, email support, and a live chat system mean you really can’t go wrong. All in all, we weren’t expecting much when we decided to review the Vernons Sports app, but have been very taken back by what it offers.
A good effort so far by Vernons and a solid foundation to build upon. They have built up a trust with their customers over the years and now they seem dedicated on focussing a little more on a 21st century gambling experience. There are key features missing currently, meaning this app doesn’t quite make our best UK betting apps list. However, for those who like basic no nonsense betting with all the gimmicks removed – this platform will be ideal.
