Our 2023 Apple iSports betting review looks at what could be expected of this new venture. Apple iSports is already a popular online sports and racing site in Australia, but now the experience is about to become a whole lot better.
We’re going into the Apple sign-up, what key features there may be, the site security, customer support and more.
Apple iSports Pros & Cons
The new Apple iSports gambling platform is not ready for us yet. As soon as the sportsbook is ready or an app is in the store, we will adjust our ratings accordingly and give you all the pros and cons. For our latest Apple iSports betting review, we go through what we already know, and what we expect when the new venture is available.
How to Sign Up for an Apple iSports Account
It goes without saying that in this Apple iSports betting review, we can’t be sure how the sign-up procedure will work on the new gambling platform.
What we do know is that many casino, slot game, sport sites and apps we review follow a similar pattern. Most brands make it very easy to open an account. These are the normal steps.
- Head to the main site, mobile site or app if they have one.
- Click on ‘Sign up’, ‘Join’ or a similar button.
- Enter your data. Usually a name, address, DOB, mobile and financials.
- Claim any deals coming your way.
- Place funds into your account.
- Place your first bets, and away you go.
We’ll be sure to review this again once the sportsbook is live, but we’re sure we’ll find it quick and easy.
Apple iSports Code
We cannot confirm that this operator will offer a code. But since a code field is usually found in registration forms, we believe that one might be on offer here, too.
What is the Apple iSports Code?
A code is typically a combination of several numbers and letters. If and when available, you will be able to use it at registration (most likely).
Who Can Claim or Use the Code?
Since the code usually serves registration purposes, we assume that only new players who are of legal betting age will be able to use it.
Where Do I Need to Put the Code?
When the code is on offer, you will be able to apply it in the appropriate field. There is normally one in the registration form.
Apple iSports Key Features
Even before the betting platform is live, our Apple iSports betting review found the brand has a number of features. These can feed into the new bets platform. We hope to see the following features.
A basic sports betting account is the least punters can expect. Odds should be made available on football, horse racing, tennis, cricket, rugby, NBA, NGL, MLB and F1. We’d like to find placing bets easy and odds on each game or race on track with other sportsbooks.
Nobody is expecting the very best odds from a new platform, but they should be competitive. Within this, we’d like to see some deep markets. Customers should be able to place spot bets such as first goalscorer, bookings, no balls, next try and so on. We hope to find all of this in our next Apple iSports betting review.
Alongside the basic sports bets, we’d also live to see live betting. At each race track or stadium, live odds are offered by the best sites and apps. It would make a big difference if the brand could do this.
This is not necessary, though some sports customers like to place the odd casino bet. Something simple such as basic slot games would suffice, though this really wouldn’t affect our ratings much, with the focus being on sports.
Ordinarily, live streaming sports events is expensive and could affect odds. This isn’t something a new brand could usually offer. Apple iSports already advertises a sports channel. This is said to be coming soon. We hope this means they can broadcast events that customers can also bet on.
New partner Scout Gaming already provides fantasy sport platforms as well as betting ones. In Apple’s ‘Free to Play’ section, they already offer a similar experience. Their games of skill involve virtual teams, with users not expected to pay. With that data already available, a strong fantasy sports section is reasonable to expect.
Apple iSports App
For their fantasy sport and gambling info site, we found no app in the store for the brand during our Apple iSports betting review. The current site, however, works very well via mobile. You can use Apple iSports via any good Android or iOS device.
The new sportsbook will be provided by Scout Gaming who have contributed to Android and iOS apps in the Apple and Play store. With that, we hope they can do so again with this brand.
Apple iSports License and Security
While providing a sportsbook in Australia requires a new license, the brand already has experience elsewhere. Our Apple iSports betting review found that they have licensed sites with good ratings in North Dakota, United States.
Their license allows them to provide real money live gambling on track and field sports, racing and other major events. Encryption is used to ensure that personal data, deposit and other money data, as well as contact details, are safe.
Scout Gaming, who will supply the sportsbook platform, are also data secure. They have made casino, game and live betting platforms for other brands with high ratings, such as Betsson. They can also place their product onto Android and iOS apps, again with all data well protected.
As of now, we found no security issues in this Apple iSports betting review. Once the sports betting platform is live, we will certainly check again.
Apple iSports Deposits and Withdrawals
A further Apple iSports betting review will be needed to check money options when the sportsbook is live. We hope to see Visa and Mastercard included in your ways to pay, along with some eWallets such as PayPal. It will be easy enough for real money deposit options to be added, though cryptocurrency requires some experience we aren’t sure the brand has.
Most sites allow you to store credit and debit cards as a way to pay for bets. We hope to find in our next review that there are plenty of such options for your bet. A deposit is usually free, which we expect will be the case here, with pay out times depending on individual gambling sites and payment methods. Typical money options for a casino, game or sports betting in Australia are:
- Bank Transfer
Although this will be a new way to place a bet in Australia, ratings will very much depend on good deposit and withdrawal options.
Apple iSports Customer Service
On the current Apple iSports site, which is for sports picks and fantasy sport, getting in touch with customer support is easy. Online chat is available at all times. A live chat system will always be our preferred method. Chatting in real time live about any gambling or deposit queries is always best.
The email option is a simple ‘Contact us’ form within the customer support section. Using this requires a little patience. It may take a number of hours for the team to reply, but they are generally knowledgeable. The same can be said when using the telephone customer service option.
It goes without saying that Apple iSports will need plenty of new expertise when it comes to casino queries and online sports betting. We only hope for now that they are on track to provide this, as the industry requires a lot of knowledge. So far, our current Apple iSports betting review has nothing bad to say about the team.
Apple iSports Review Conclusion
Our Apple iSports betting review for this year gets us excited to think about what’s coming. The new betting platform is a welcome addition to the market. While an app isn’t important to us when there’s a strong mobile site, we would like to see good payment options and fair odds.
We also like to see a good number of bet options on a wide range of sports, while strong licensing and security always help the ratings, and that’s something the brand can already boast. We very much hope our next Apple iSports betting review is handing out great ratings for an already popular Australian brand.
Your top questions answered by our Apple iSports betting review.

We found in our Apple iSports betting review that the mobile site is already the way to go. We expect this will be the same when the sportsbook is online. Currently, no apps are available, but the mobile site works perfectly on Android and iOS devices. There is no real need for an app yet.

The new sportsbook will likely go online early in 2023. Our Apple iSports betting review found that the first quarter of the new year is a minimum target.
What can I bet on with Apple iSports?
We can’t be certain of what sort of gambling experience will be offered yet. Other sportsbook platforms provided by Scout Gaming Group, however, offer all major sports. Live betting on racing, football, cricket, tennis, NBA, NGL, and MLB should all be included. This is under review.
