If you’re an Android user that plans on downloading sports betting apps in Tennessee, grab your mobile device and get started.
Each of the Volunteer State’s four operators offers a fully functional app for both iOS and Android devices. Tennessee’s current sportsbooks are DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM and Action 24/7.
Select the sportsbooks you wish to download, then register and make your first deposit to hit the ground running. It really is that simple.
Downloading an Android sports betting app
Android users have a few more steps to download a sports betting app on their device due to Google’s prohibition of gambling apps within the Google Play marketplace in the US.
Instead, Android users must download the app directly from the sportsbook’s website.
The sportsbook’s site will either have a pop-up or direct download link for the app when you visit.
Once downloaded, browse through potential bonuses, then register and make a deposit.
Registering at a sportsbook
Registering at a chosen sportsbook is the next step toward betting.
Users that already have a daily fantasy sports account on DraftKings or FanDuel will not need to register again. The same credentials for the daily fantasy account can be used to sign in to the sportsbook app once downloaded.
New customers 21 years or older will have to register before making a deposit.
When initially registering, you will need to provide your:
- Full name
- Date of birth
- Home address
- Email address
- Last 4 digits of Social Security number
Making your first deposit
Once you have created your account, it is time to add some cash to it. This process is easy and quick.
Multiple banking options are available to make the deposit process as seamless as possible:
Credit/Debit Cards: For a quick deposit method, pull out a credit or debit card and enter your details. Funds will be transferred immediately upon approval. The majority of sportsbooks accept Visa and Mastercard.
PayPal: PayPal is one of the easiest and most popular ways of transferring money. In turn, withdrawal can be accomplished by placing funds back into that same account. If using PayPal to deposit via a debit or credit card, there may be a small fee assessed.
Bank Transfer: Depositing funds via an ACH bank transfer is generally the quickest, most straightforward way of transferring money into your account. Preferred options for larger deposits include bill pay and wire transfer.
Prepaid card: Some sportsbooks offer their own prepaid cards that can be ordered on the cashier portion of the platform. Players can load money onto these cards then transfer it into the sportsbook. Non-branded prepaid cards are also available, though some sportsbooks don’t accept all types of cards.
Cash: Since Tennessee sports betting is online only, depositing cash in person at a retail sportsbook is not an option. Instead, PayNearMe is an option that allows players to make a cash deposit at a convenience store like 7-Eleven or CVS.
Once you fund your bankroll, there’s nothing left to do but check out the latest promotions and join the races.
Remember, geolocation software requires all players to be inside Tennessee state lines in order to place a wager.
Sportsbook odds, bonuses and promotions
It often pays to shop around for the most enticing welcome bonuses and competitive lines before placing your first bet.
Compare the specific props, promotions and lines offered by each sportsbook. Or, test out multiple sportsbooks by taking advantage of various welcome offers.
Many sportsbooks offer matched deposit bonuses. Sportsbooks will match your first deposit, up to a set amount, with site credit. The bonus cannot be automatically withdrawn, though any winnings accrued with that bonus can be.
Free bets and risk-free bets are also among the most common initial incentives. With risk-free bets, if you lose your first bet or first few bets, the sportsbook will return the value of your wager in site credit. There are limits to these promotions.
Ongoing promotions in the way of matched deposit bonuses, loyalty programs and parlay and profit boosts will also be available. Keep checking the sportsbooks’ promotion pages to stay up-to-date.
