Welcome to the Betting Site review section of my site! Here you will find links to the reviews of each of the sportsbooks I recommend to Canadian bettors.
You will notice that I only recommend 3 online sportsbooks, which is far fewer than most other sports betting info sites. This is because I will only recommend the sportsbooks that I truly feel are the best fit for Canadian bettors. Instead of giving you a huge list of 15 sportsbooks and asking you to wade through the information to find which one is best for you, I’ve narrowed the selection process down to the best three sportsbooks for Canadians.
When deciding which online betting sites to promote I looked at the following criteria:
- Must have a sports betting selection that thoroughly covers all of the popular Canadian sports.
- Must be committed to building their brand in the Canadian market and have a sustainable long-term plan for providing their sports betting service in Canada.
- Must offer great bonuses and promotions to Canadian players. **Two of the sportsbooks exclusively offer bonuses to Canadians.
- Must offer banking options that are easy to use for Canadian customers.
- Must have a great customer support team that puts Canadians first.
- Must allow you to place bets in Canadian dollars in order to avoid currency exchange fees.
Each of the three sportsbooks I chose to promote have met each of these criteria. They are all recognizable names in Canada and have built a great reputation among Canadian bettors.

The betting sites are rated here from 1 to 3, with Sports Interaction being my most recommended sportsbook. That said I do suggest that you consider opening an account with each of these sportsbooks in order to take advantage of the bonuses offered and to compare odds when placing bets in the future.
Best Sportsbook for Different Categories
Here are my picks for a few categories of the sportsbooks that may be of particular interest to certain Canadians.
Best Betting Selection – Bet365
Bet365 wins this category because of their live betting offerings. Each of the three sportsbooks offer very similar betting options on the top Canadian sports, but Bet365 goes above and beyond with their live betting by accepting live bets on almost every sporting event Canadians would be interested in.
Best Bonus – Sports Interaction
We’ve struck a deal with Sports Interaction to give new sign ups a 100% up to $200 bonus on your first deposit. All three of our recommended betting sites offer a $200 bonus, but what sets Sports Interactions bonus apart is that there is no expiration for clearing the rollover requirements.
Best Deposit Options – Sports Interaction
Sports Interaction has really stepped up their banking options game in recent years and they are now the sportsbook I consider the easiest of our top bookies to get money into and out of. SIA offers the widest range of deposit options among our recommended sportsbooks, including Visa or MasterCard, Interac, iDebit, paysafecard, MuchBetter and ecoPayz. The list of deposit options is really impressive, but what sets SIA apart from the other sportsbooks is their Interac deposit/withdrawal option. In my opinion Interac is the best method for Canadians to deposit and withdraw from betting sites.
I would like to give an honourable mention to Bodog in this category. Bodog is the only sportsbook that currently accepts Bitcoin as a deposit/payout method. With the way Bitcoin continues to become more popular among Canadians I expect people to use sportsbooks accepting Bitcoin in the future. Bodog is also now accepting American Express deposits, which is becoming a popular credit card deposit method for Canadians.
All of that said, you shouldn’t have any trouble depositing at any of the 3 sites.
Other Canadian Sportsbooks
After a few requests I’ve decided to add reviews of a few other sportsbooks that are emerging in the Canadian market. That said I will continue to primarily recommend the top 3 sportsbooks throughout the site, which should allow you to make an easier decision when deciding which sportsbook(s) to use.
The below sportsbooks may not have made my top 3 list, but that does not mean they aren’t also great sportsbooks that are viable, reputable and trustworthy options for Canadians.
Having more sports betting accounts is never a bad thing. You can compare odds between the sites to ensure you are getting the best price available, and you can also take advantage of each sites welcome bonus or various promotions. With that in mind here are a few other sports betting sites that you could consider…..
BetOnline.ag is a North American focused sportsbook that has adopted Bitcoin as it’s main banking option, but also accepts Interac, Visa, MasterCard and American Express meaning it hits on all of the banking option most often used by Canadians. They also have some of the best bonuses in the industry with a 25% bonus on every single reload, on top of their 50% up to $1000 first deposit bonus and 100% up to $1000 first Bitcoin deposit bonus.
