***The 2018 Winter Olympics are here. Check out our up to date post on how to bet on the Winter Olympics from Canada.
We are only a few short days away from the 2016 Rio Olympics Opening Ceremony, which takes place this Friday evening at 7pm EST. After that opening ceremony we are going to be treated to two jam packed weeks of Summer Olympics action! The Olympics is a massive event around the world and in Canada the coverage is second to none with CBC, TSN and TSN basically having close to 24 hour coverage of every sport in the Olympics, with a keen eye on our top Canadian athletes. I will personally have the TV on for about two weeks straight, with plenty of betting action on several events in these Olympic Games.
The Olympics always brings out new sports bettors who want to add a bit of excitement to their Olympics viewing experience and also cash in on their Olympics knowledge. It’s for these people that I’ve decided to add this simple guide to betting on the Olympics in Canada.
Bet On Rio Olympics in Canada – How To Guide
Follow these three steps and you will be placing your Olympics bets in just a few minutes.
#1. Open An Online Betting Account
First of all you’ll need to open an account with a reputable online betting site. SportsInteraction.com is our top rated site for Canadians looking to bet on the Olympic Games. Sports Interaction only accepts Canadian residents, and this allows them to fully customize their sportsbook to what Canadians are interested in betting on, and also completely focus their efforts on ensuring the betting experience is safe, simple and secure for Canadians.
I’ve secured a 100% up to $125 sign up bonus for new Sports Interaction sign ups for these Olympics. Click here to get this bonus with a SportsInteraction.com sign up.
You’ll need some money in your account in order to place your Olympic wagers. As I mentioned earlier, Sports Interaction is completely focused on the Canadian market, and this definitely translates into simple and secure deposits and withdrawals for Canadian sign ups. Check out our deposit methods information page to learn more about some of the deposit options you can use at Sports Interaction.
I want to stress that you receive a 100% matching bonus up to $125 on your first deposit at Sports Interaction by signing up through us. I always recommend new sign ups take full advantage of this offer because it is extremely rare that you will receive a bonus offer on any subsequent deposits at Sports Interaction.
#3. Bet On The Olympics!
Now that you have funds online you’re ready to place your Olympics bets.
Once on the Sports Interaction website you’ll see ‘Olympics’ in the left sidebar of the sportsbook. From this drop down menu you can navigate to all of the various Olympics events and find the athlete or team you’re interested in betting on.
You will also be able to find the betting lines by going in through the sport. For example, if you click on ‘Basketball’ -> ‘International’, you will see the Olympics games that you can bet on. Sports Interaction has made it very easy for you to navigate to the Olympics events that you want to bet on.
I’m going to be adding plenty of predictions articles on the various Olympics events, so bookmark the site to find some great bets once the Olympics gets underway.
Also, if you’re new to betting online I suggest check out some of the articles in our betting guide section. They are very helpful and should ensure that you understand the odds and what it is you’re placing your bets on.
