The Sports Betting CanadianWelcome to my site, SportsBettingCanadian.ca!  As you have probably guessed I’m a Canadian who is a huge sports fan and an avid sports bettor.  After betting on sports for many years I noticed that there really wasn’t an online authority on sports betting for Canadians.  Having a solid background in the betting industry and experience building other sports betting websites, I decided to take it upon myself to create the ultimate sports betting information site for Canadian bettors!

Here at Sports Betting Canadian all of the information is written by me and tailored towards Canadian sports bettors.  I’ve included a section dedicated to the various provinces and their government run sports lotteries, a betting guide with articles for both beginner and advanced bettors, information about betting on the most popular Canadian sports, a complete section on horse race betting in Canada and a thorough guide to all of the deposit options available to Canadians.

Top Sportsbooks for Canadians

Almost every sports betting site online accepts Canadian bettors, which leaves quite a choice for Canadian sports bettors.  Here at Sports Betting Canadian I only wanted to promote the very best online betting sites, so I waded through all of the different information and found what I feel are far and away the best 3 sportsbooks for Canadian bettors.  These betting sites are each committed to growing their brand in the Canadian market and offering a great product to Canadians for years to come.  Each of the sportsbooks tailor their sportsbooks and banking options to Canadian residents and even offer exclusive bonuses and promos to Canadian bettors.  The sportsbooks are all safe, secure, trusted and respected in the industry with great customer service teams that make sure you enjoy your online betting experience.

Sportsbook Bonus Review Visit
1 100% up to $125 Review Visit
2 100% up to $200 Review Visit
3 100% up to $200 Review Visit

Each of the reviews for my 3 recommended sportsbooks are written with the Canadian sports bettor in mind.  I suggest opening an account at each site to take advantage of the bonuses, but check out the reviews if you’re just looking for one sportsbook at the moment.

Sports Betting by Province

You will notice that a large section of the website is dedicated to sports betting options offered by the various Provincial lottery corporations in Canada.  These provincially run sports betting “lotteries” generally have far worse odds than the popular Canadian facing online betting sites, and I felt it was my responsibility to provide information on each of the various province-run sports betting options and compare them with the top online betting sites for Canadians.

You can check out this very popular section of the site by clicking here.  In that section I’ve broken down Canadian sports betting by province, provincial lottery corporation and the sports betting option provided by each provincial government.

Sports Betting in 2016

2015 was the year of Daily Fantasy Sports.  You may have noticed that with the DraftKings and FanDuel boom I’ve started covering DFS more here on the site and that should continue through 2016.  That said, with this DFS boom, online sports betting is as big as ever with more eyes and options for sports gambling always a positive.  Here’s hoping we have another successful year with both our daily fantasy and sports betting in 2016.

I also want to note that it’s easy to get carried away when betting on sports and some people inevitably bet more than they can afford.  I want to stress that you should always gamble responsibly and only bet with an amount you are willing to lose (anything can happen in sports).  If you feel that gambling is affecting your life in a negative way don’t hesitate to get help.  Visit Gamblers Anonymous today to learn more about getting help with any sports betting problems you may have.

About SportsBettingCanadian.ca

Sports Betting Canadian PictureI launched SportsBettingCanadian.ca in 2014 because, as a passionate Canadian sports bettor, I saw a need for an accurate and thorough information site focusing solely on sports betting in Canada.  Now in 2016, I feel that we have the most complete and authoritative information site online for Canadians to get their sports betting questions answered.

All of the information pages here at SportsBettingCanadian.ca are written by me, as well as the majority of articles, but I’ve also added a couple experts to help me with articles on sports that I don’t follow quite as closely.  For a more in depth bio or to shoot me a message check out my About Me page.

Thanks for visiting SportsBettingCanadian.ca and do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
