• You may be in a location where you have restricted or no internet access.

• You need odds for an event not available on a betting site.

• The betting site you're using is down.

• You may have a disability that restricts your ability to use a computer.

Although telephone betting seems a thing of the past, it's still useful for customers, that is why some bookmakers in the UK are still offering the service.
