Watching a game or fight in the comfort of your own home, with good food and friends, can’t be beat. Apps allow you to get in on the action, adding quick betting access to ramp up the excitement, without the hassle (or noise, or smoke, or crowds) of going all the way out to a casino. Apps such as DraftKings and FanDuel make it easy to place general sports bets (depending on the state) and fantasy wagers.

Not only do betting apps create an opportunity for fun, convenient and exciting gaming, they can also mean serious revenue on the state level. Legalized sports betting in New Jersey made two billion in nine months, and more than 80 percent of that betting being online, the vast majority of which happened through apps like FanDuel and DraftKings. As Axios notes:

Following New Jersey's lead and getting mobile sports betting up and running seems like the obvious answer to these states' revenue problems.

Whether in riverboats, reservations, Las Vegas or Atlantic City, casinos are big money. Some people go to casinos for cards and sports gaming, but others go more for the experience than the winnings. Bars, buffets, smoke and sounds, rows of clanging, blinking slots...if this is your idea of fun, casinos are the right place for you.

Sports betting apps are cool, but they’re not legal everywhere. If you live in Illinois, for example, you have to go to a casino. Sports betting and apps have the potential to bring in millions a year to the state, but at the moment, a casino is the only way to go for gaming. That could change, though. Casinos will always be big business, but Illinois Rep. Mike Zalewski is interested in broadening the landscape. 

"We’re very much interested in the mobile marketplace as it relates to sports betting,” Zalewski said. “We’ve become very aware that states that don’t have a mobile piece, or if it takes too long to launch it, don’t fare very well.”
