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 value added promotions to Canadian players.
- Must offer banking options that are easy to use for Canadian customers.
- Must have a great customer support team that puts Canadians first.
- Must have an iGaming license to operate in Ontario.
- 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.

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 Promotions – Bet99
Bet99 has fun and value added promotions available for existing Bet99 bettors at all times. The current promotions are shown prominently in a Promotions page on the Bet99 website. Promotions are a great way to engage and reward existing players, and Bet99 does a great job with their frequently updated promos.
Bet99 also has Boosted Odds consistently available for a wide variety of events that Canadians are interested in betting on.

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 a wide range of deposit options, including Visa or MasterCard, Interac, iDebit, paysafecard, MuchBetter and ecoPayz.
Best Features – Bet365
The live betting at Bet365 alone gives them the win in this category. Bet365 sets the industry standard for live betting offerings and they even allow you to watch the majority of events directly at the site while you place your bets.
The cash out option is another unique feature that allows players to cash out bets before they are graded, which can be very useful for players looking to get out of bets or hedge easily.
All of our recommended sportsbooks now accept Interac for deposits and withdrawals. Interac is the best method for the majority of Canadians looking to deposit and withdraw from betting sites.
Other Canadian Sportsbooks
After a few requests I’ve decided to add reviews of a few other sportsbooks that are popular 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, which can result in a significant amount if you’re betting often.
