Most of the mobile gambling companies enable one to bet, browse through their
odds and receive bet notifications through mobile devices like mobile phones,
PDAs and handheld computers. Once the bet has been settled, the company sends
the bet notification as an instant message alert to the mobile phone of the
gambler. This message informs the person betting as to whether the bet had been
won or lost, and if there is sufficient space, the score of the game is added.
All one has to do to activate this feature is to choose the SMS alert option
when placing the bet. One usually receives 10 messages free of charge with the
additional messages being charged. Some mobile gambling companies provide their
subscribers with a betting in-running commentary on games like football, golf,
cricket and tennis.
For one to be able to use their mobile phone for gambling, one has to be sure
that the mobile phone is WAP enabled. Most of the phones which are less than 2
years old are most likely to be WAP enabled. To bet, one has to go to the
internet via the mobile phone and then to the WAP or services section from the
main menu. Then you have to type the gambling service you use. Once connected,
log in with the existing username and password, and start gambling!
