No, IMEI numbers are not carried by the internet protocol used when a cell phone is being used as a hotspot or using your browser on the phone. Not sure when a bookie app is installed on the phone but 99% sure it wont have access to the IMEI.

dealer is 100% right. Even when app is installed on your phone, it must ask a certain permission to have all the phone information which is not legal(in a way as digital fingerprinting). They get the usual info thats all.

Bear in mind, that they can use your device fingerprint to pretty accurately identify if the device is being used on more than one account, you can run a test on many sites to see if your digital fingerprint is unique. One such site here https://amiunique.org/fp

I don't get why you would install a bookies app? What benefit is there for you to do so?
I go to the website via a browser because i don't trust any app not to harvest data against my permission.

And i would never use the same phone across different logons (second hand ones are so cheap)
so i don't really care about digital fingerprints - i just change my fingerprint
