Sports betting app development costs like 1XBet

Everybody wants to earn online just by sitting at their home with a mobile, and that’s what a sports betting app helps them to do. Did you know that sports betting app marketing is booming? It was worth $53 billion in 2019, and it’s expected to reach $564 billion by 2027.

In earlier times, when groups of friends, family, or colleagues watched sports matches, they would make predictions, such as who would win the match, what the score would be, and many other predictions. The person whose prediction was correct would receive rewards. However, this was done on a small scale. So, why don’t we move it to a larger scale with a mobile app?

However, the entire process of launching a sports betting app is not that easy.

Many governments in different countries support sports betting and many do not.

In this article, I am going to discuss every aspect of sports betting

The sports betting industry earned around $4.3 billion in 2021 in the USA. and 70.23 USD in the global sports market. It was expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.7% during the forecast period.

According to the casino organization, almost 26% of the world’s population gambles. Around 1.6 billion users bet globally with 4.2 people betting at least once in year.

The main player in promoting online betting is the smartphone, and after the launch of 5G, this will boost smartphone sales, leading to a certain J-curve in sports betting marketing.

Some of the major players in the sports betting industry

There are mainly three major sports betting apps in the market which are leading this industry. If you are willing to launch your own sports betting app, then these are your high-level competitors.

How many third-party services are required to develop a sports betting app?

There are many APIs, or you can say third-party APIs, that we need to integrate into your app to make it work seamlessly. This needs to be very clear to you before you go for app development because these APIs are paid, and you have to add these expenses to your budget.

Live score API / services :

With these services, you can show the live score of the match going on in real time, and this is the most important feature of any sports betting app. With these APIs, we also determine if the user has won the bet or lost, and accordingly, we credit or debit the amount from their wallet.

This creates a sporty environment, and users tend to play more. The live score part should be very smooth and in real-time.

Some good companies whose APIs you can consider for your app are: Sportsmonk, ApiCricket

Payment gateway APIs

We use a payment gateway to accept payment from the user instantly and this helps a lot when you have a large customer base.

The service that provides a payment gateway for sports betting apps is: UpiGateway

Autowithdraw service

We use this service to send the withdrawal request to the user instantly when they apply for withdrawal.

When this part becomes automatic and fast, you will gain more customer trust, and customers will use your app for the long term.

AWS server (Amazon Web Service)

You have to choose this very carefully and cannot compromise on the budget for server costs because if your users feel the app is laggy and slow, then it will take only 2 seconds for them to uninstall your app.

In today’s world, customer attention span has decreased to 7 seconds. If your app takes more than 7 seconds to load, or if any data takes too much time to load, then the user will leave.

So make sure to use AWS servers for a better user experience.
