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), Halifax Hurricanes (NBL Canada) 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.

Offline Sports Betting in Halifax
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. You are also not allowed to bet on single games (2 game parlays minimum), which amplifies their weak odds. 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.
