Mobile betting is becoming increasingly popular with punters and it is now vital for bookmakers to offer a way for their punters to bet on the go. Whether punters are looking for a way to bet while they are away from home, or just an easier way to bet that saves loading up the computer, bookmakers have to offer something. K8 offer a great mobile app version of their website, which means all you need to do is point your browser the right way, there is no need to download an app to place bets. Go to www.uk-k8.com and sign up today to get involved with some great welcome offers from this gambling giant. The K8 app is one of the better looking betting apps on the market and we have been very impressed with it.

K8 may not yet be a big name in the UK, but around the globe, they are massive. They have over 15 million customers worldwide, operate in over 50 countries and have a website and mobile app site that supports several languages. They are huge in Asia and since 2015, are slowly making a name for themselves in Europe.

Some bookmakers offer an app, but K8 don’t meaning you do everything through your mobile browser. This means that if you have a mobile phone and the internet connected to it, you don’t need anything else to place your bets with them. So mobile users, as well as Android device users and iOS users (iPhone & iPad) just need to head to the K8 mobile site available at  www.uk-k8.com What we recommend players to do is to save the site as a bookmark or use the Add To Home Screen option from the menu. This add a shortcut on your phone to access the app in a matter of seconds. Will K8 bring out a downloadable app? We are sure they will in time but at the minute, you just need to use the web based mobile app. There is a dedicated Android & iOS app available outside of Europe so it makes sense that they will do one for players in Europe. As soon as they do, we will let you know.

Head over to the mobile version of their website, which is m.uk-k8.com and from here you can place any bets you like. You need to sign up first which you can do on the mobile site and this just takes a few moments to do. After that, you can then log in to your account. This just involves typing in your username and password that you created, and only takes a few seconds. After this you will be presented with menus that look familiar as they are similar to those used on the main desktop website. This means you should be able to find your way around the website with ease, allowing you to place your bets quickly if you don’t have much time. With the K8 app mobile site being specifically designed for mobiles it is light on your phone, and works very quickly. This is important, because you don’t want to miss a bet while you are waiting for things to load up, so it is good to see. It is easy to narrow down what you want to bet on and this is done by the main menu at the top of the screen. Tap on the icon for the sport, or use the search facility to type the game/match/player in. Now you can narrow down to the game and see the odds available. Tap on the odds and this bet will be added to your bet slip, which will appear on the left. Continue adding more selections or tap on place bet to lay your bet down. You can add your stake and see the winnings should your bet come in. You can keep track of all the places bets in the account area, which you can get to by clicking the player icon and LOG IN button.

Our verdict on the app from K8: A decent mobile app with a lot of choices

Like we mentioned earlier on K8 may not yet be big (especially in the UK) but expect that to change over the next few months. They are marking the brand with a huge push in Europe and they are hoping to get a lot of new customers and players join them. Should you join K8? Well we think so as they have a good app and offer some interesting markets that you wont get with your usual UK bookmaker. As they are so big in Asia, you can find a lot of markets that aren’t available elsewhere so it’s a good app to use when looking at value bets from around the globe. In terms of the K8 app, it has all the features of the main website, just on a smaller scale. This means that you can place any bets you would like, and take full advantage of the betting markets that K8 have to offer.[

With many markets and betting opportunities available for each sport, you will find plenty of ways in which you can get involved. Whether you are looking to place a live bet on football taking place right now, or tennis events that are happening tomorrow, you can do it all on the K8 mobile website. There are over 25 different betting opportunities from a range of sports available including Horse Racing, Football, Tennis, Darts, Snooker, AFL, American Football, Badminton, Baseball, Basketball, Ice Hockey, Motor Racing, Pool, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Cricket, Cross Country Skiing, Cycling, E-Sports, Fighting, Gaelic Football, Golf, Handball, Specials, Surfing and Volleyball. The markets available on football are pretty impressive and cover leagues in over 50 countries. You can find all the major leagues covered like the Premier League, La Liga, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and Eredivisie plus there is a good range of less popular leagues too. International competitions and friendless are also covered.

The odds on offer are competitive too, so you are going to get a good deal every time you place a bet. When compared to other bookies, K8 always seemed to be there or there about’s, sometimes even better value than competitors. You can access all these odds and markets on the website and of course on the K8 app for Android & iOS.

The layout, feel and look of the mobile application is pretty simple in looks. We do like the black background and well placed, well presented menu system used. It is easy to find what you want to bet on and also easy to confirm and place your bet. There are good live visuals for the in play markets and the bookies provides up to date stats and coverage of lots of events.
