Halifax is the largest city in Atlantic Canada with over 400,000 living in the main city in Nova Scotia. Halifax has a quality arena currently named the Scotiabank Centre that is home to the Halifax Thunderbirds (NLL) and Halifax Moosehead (QMJHL). There is often live sports to be watched at the old Halifax Metro Centre on any given night in Halifax.
Similar to the rest of Canada, sports betting has become popular in Halifax over the past several years, with many residents now placing bets through online betting sites. Below I will recommend our three recommended betting sites for Halifax residents and look at the offline betting options in Halifax.

Offline Sports Betting in Halifax
Offline sports betting is available in Halifax through Proline Stadium, which is a sports betting lottery offered by the Atlantic Lottery Corporation.
Proline Stadium has it’s draw backs and it’s really only an option for casual bettors who prefer offline betting to joining one of the betting sites I’ve recommended above.
Proline Stadium does not offer player friendly odds. The odds offered at any of our recommended betting sites will result in larger payouts, as seen by my example here. The betting selection through the Proline Stadium products is also lacking. I advise Halifax residents who bet with Proline Stadium to make the jump to betting online.
Land Based Casinos in Halifax
The Casino Nova Scotia is located on the water in downtown Halifax. The Casino offers a wide variety of slots, table games and a poker room.
Unfortunately, Casino Nova Scotia is not able to accept sports wagers at this time.
Sports Teams in Halifax
Halifax isn’t home to teams from any of the top North American sports leagues, but there are a good selection of teams in junior or Canadian leagues.
- Halifax Mooseheads (QMJHL)
