Of the two main credit cards in Canada (Visa & MasterCard), MasterCard does have the better success rate at our three top rated sportsbooks.  MasterCard isn’t as concerned as Visa about not allowing online gambling deposits so if you have a MasterCard I would use that over a Visa.

MasterCard Deposit Guide

Depositing via your MasterCard at any of the online sportsbooks listed above is the exact same as making an online purchase using your MasterCard.

You will need to provide your credit card number, expiry date, CVV and the amount to deposit.

After entering all those details click deposit.  You will then be notified whether or not your deposit has been successful.

Prepaid MasterCards

You can also use prepaid MasterCards for depositing to your online betting account and unlike a regular MasterCard the prepaid MasterCards will almost always work.

Some banks will attempt to block transactions with online gambling sites, which can make it difficult to use your regular MasterCard to deposit at certain sites.  This is not a problem with prepaid MasterCard deposits.  I suggest contacting customer support if you intend to go this route in order to get their recommendation on which type of prepaid card you should buy to ensure they can process the deposit.

Sports Betting Canadian Picture

I suggest the Vanilla MasterCard if you’re looking to deposit via a prepaid credit card.  I have recommended this card to many people and have never heard of it being declined by a betting site.  You can buy Vanilla MasterCards anywhere prepaid cards are sold, such as the local convenience store or pharmacy.


At Bet365 they will try to cash out your winnings back onto your MasterCard.  If you would prefer to change this cash out method you will have to contact Bet365 support.

At Sports Interaction and Bodog you will be able to withdraw your winnings either via cheque or by bank transfer.  But first you will need to verify your identity and your address by sending in a scan of your drivers license and a proof of address.
