Messenger apps have changed how we communicate. Now they’re changing how we bet – welcome to the rise of WhatsApp betting.

WhatsApp betting is when friends or tipsters and their followers use WhatsApp to exchange betting tips. It’s particularly popular in up and coming betting countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Tanzania and Kenya where people love to chat about sport. People share tips by typing them or by sharing a screenshot of their betslip into chat. The users in the group then discuss the bet. If they like it, they find and place it on a bookmaker app of their choice.

One of the most common uses of WhatsApp betting is for major events such as the World Cup, The premier League, or racing festivals such as Cheltenham and Royal Ascot. Not only do you get the banter of discussing the event with friends, but pooling your knowledge and expertise to bet as a group can pay dividends in terms of profit.

The Problem with WhatsApp Betting

Despite the popularity of WhatsApp betting, WhatsApp was never designed for this purpose. The problem is that Whatsapp is disconnected from the dynamic and fast paced world of sports betting. First you have to find the bet in a bookie app, then screenshot it, before sharing it to Whatsapp. If you’re in a group and you want to place a bet your friend has shared you have to do the reverse – open a bookie app and try and find the damn thing. It’s a painful and clunky process.

Better than a WhatsApp Betting Group

Bet Blocks Messenger

Bet Blocks Messenger is an exciting new betting app with the objective of being better than WhatsApp betting. It’s a messenger app specifically designed to chat sport and bet with friends by being connected to live odds data from the biggest bookies.

With Bet Blocks you can create chat groups with friends like any other messenger. The difference is that Bet Blocks automatically detects bets in conversation. The moment you type “Germany 2-1 and Portugal to draw” Bet Blocks understands this is a bet, fetches you the best odds from the biggest bookies and drops them into chat. No more painful finding of bets and taking screenshots, Bet Blocks does it for you.

Tapping the odds instantly reveals a list of major bookies and the odds they offer. From here you can choose which bookie you want to bet with and place the bet without even having to leave the app.

The beauty of Bet Blocks over WhatsApp betting is that it connects you and your friends together while enabling you share and place group bets, and do so even if you all bet with different bookies. To try Bet Blocks hit the button below!
