PowerPlay Canada Sports Betting
Loaded with sports betting events from around the globe, a LIVE Las Vegas style Casino, plus standard slot and table game action, PowerPlay is the latest online wagering site to welcome Canadian bettors. A simple three-step signup process gets players into the game quickly and site navigation is intuitive and smooth. Below, we offer a handcrafted review on the PowerPlay online betting experience.
First time PowerPlay customers receive a sportsbook welcome reward of up to $100 in Free Bets with their initial deposit. This bonus is paid out as two free plays that match the first two bets the client makes. Simply place two $50 bets, on options with odds over 3.0, to receive two equal free plays that can be used as single bets or parlay tickets. Free bet stake is not returned on winning wagers. Players are advised to view full Terms and Conditions at the website.
PowerPlay offers a limited number of contests and promotions beyond their Welcome reward. That includes their Refer A Friend program that pays clients a $20 Free Bet for each customer they bring in. The VIP Casino Bonus is for high rollers who receive 10% in extra casino plays on deposits between $500 and $5,000. PowerPlay Super Sub and Injury Time Bonus offers revolve around Premier League and Champions League matches and award players a 50% bonus.
Bettors land at the sportsbook when they log on at PowerPlay. LIVE odds load down the middle of the home page and an A to Z list of all sports is posted in a sidebar on the left. Customer login, plus links to the LIVE and standard Casino, is located in the homepage header. A crimson and grey background compliments white betting boxes that display the options in clean black letters. Switching between action, in the sportsbook or either Casino, is quick and seamless.
Previously a “wave of the future” LIVE betting has arrived in full flight at online sportsbooks. PowerPlay is in that group as they offer in-play betting on a variety of sporting events. LIVE wagering options load on the PowerPlay home page and include action on everything from American Football to Volleyball. Standard betting options, money lines, spread prices and game totals, plus many exotics like highest scoring period, are offered throughout the matches.
Needing an upgrade, the LIVE Chat feature at PowerPlay directs to an email form that asks clients to type their question and include their name and email address. Once sent, bettors are advised they will receive an answer within 24 hours. To their credit, our queries were answered with an email replay within the time specified. WhatsApp and Facebook are also listed as ways to contact the customer service team. PowerPlay needs to work on a higher level of client care.
Game totals, against the spread and money line prices are standard betting odds at PowerPlay. Somewhat disappointing, bettors can choose between decimal and fractional odds formats, as PowerPlay currently does not offer American odds. Clients can select their choice of odds at the bottom of the A to Z sports list. Single, double and triple bets are offered along with an extensive list of exotics like Super Heinz, Lucky 63, Scorecast and up to eightfold accumulators.
Whether due to being new, or a corporate decision, banking options at PowerPlay were limited at the time of this review on 24/02/19. A drop down menu asks customers to select the Country they are in and the easiest deposit methods are then displayed. While credit card and Interact options are listed as coming soon, choices in Canada include Mastercard and VISA, Bank Transfer and ecoPayz. If you are playing at PowerPlay please check the website for banking details.
Firing up an iPad, logging into PowerPlay was quick and easy while out on the road. The site loads as it would on a larger computer screen and we like that the betting boxes are large and intuitive to the touch. With no download required, the mobile betting platform offers LIVE and next day wagering options, plus prices on championship futures. Table games and slot action also loads crisp and clean. The Tech Crew earns high grades for a quality mobile platform.
PowerPlay Sportsbook Bottom Line Recommendation
Delivering handcrafted opinions, the Canada Sports Betting review crew has meticulously researched many online wagering sites over the years. From veteran bookmakers like Bodog and SportsInteraction, to relative newcomers like MyBookie and LeoVegas, we have seen it all. At this point, in their early development, PowerPlay is a few tweaks short of being recommended as a “go to” sports and casino betting source. Due to most betting features being in place, once they offer added banking options, and upgrade their customer service department, PowerPlay will rise on our ranking list.
