Want to try betting with friends? You’re not alone! More and more people are now using messenger apps such as WhatsApp to bet with friends. Independent research shows that 8 out of 10 people bet with friends because it makes watching the matches more fun.

How People are Betting With Friends

To bet together with friends people typically use WhatsApp, Telegram or Facebook Messenger to exchange betting tips. They 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.

Betting with friends is particularly common for major events like 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.

A New and Exciting Way of Betting With Friends

Crew is a new messenger app designed specifically for chatting sport and betting with friends

Crew Messenger is an exciting new betting app with the objective of being a better way of betting with friends. 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 Crew you create chat groups like any other messenger. The difference is that Crew automatically detects bets in conversation. The moment you type “Germany 2-1 and Portugal to draw” Crew 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, Crew 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 Crew 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 Crew hit the button below!
