Instant Banking is a simple way to transfer funds directly from your bank account to your sports betting account.  You only need to enter your banking login and answer two verification questions to gain access to your bank accounts for the transfer.

Instant Banking is a safe and secure online banking transfer option that does not require your Social Insurance Number, making it one of the best ways to transfer funds directly from your bank account to an online sportsbook.

Sportsbooks Accepting Instant Banking recently stopped accepting Instant Banking deposits. They now accept Interac deposits, which is a much easier method for Canadians looking to transfer funds between a bank account and betting account.

**I’ve left this page up in case Sports Interaction or any other betting sites decide to accept Instant Banking deposits in the future.
