After receiving the sportsbook welcome bonus, players are eligible to claim a $200 bonus at PowerPlay casino.
One of PowerPlay's main promotions is 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.
Since we first reviewed them, PowerPlay has added a few new player rewards, including a Hockey promo and US sports betting offer. From what we know there are more offers coming our way so they are definitely ramping up their generosity in the all-important area of contests and promotions.
Sunday Night Home Run Special: MLB bettors, who place a winning wager (min $20) on the Game of the Week, receive a $2.00 free play for each home run hit in the contest.Short-Handed Goal Offer: Puck bettors, who select a winning max $20 NHL bet, will earn 50% extra cash if the side they wagered on scores a short-handed goal during the win.$5 Free bet every day: That's right! PowerPlay is giving away $5 every day if you bet on sports. This is due to the coronavirus outbreak, which cancelled all the big competitions. This offer should while non-marquee sports and tournaments get the highlights of the sportsbooks.
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.
The LIVE Chat feature at PowerPlay is available: Mon-Fri 8:00 am to 6:00 pm EST and Sat-Sun from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm EST.
Outside of those hours, it 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, which we can confirm, as our queries were answered with an email reply within the time specified. WhatsApp and Facebook are also listed as ways to contact the customer service team.
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.
Powerplay is investing to make available new payment methods everyday. On this review updated in May 2019, many options were added compared to our February review. This includes Visa, Visa Electron, Visa Debit, Mastercard, Maestro, Skrill, Neteller, Ecopayz, Bank Transfer and the one we all love right now in Canada: Interac (both online and e-transfer). 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. PowerPlay is investing a lot in its customer service and banking options, making this sportsbook more attractive to its players every day.
If a few months ago, PowerPlay was fairly unknown to the majority of the Canadian gamblers, however, it has quickly become a reliable sportsbook that supports more Canadian-friendly payment methods than a lot of other bookies. They've worked well for Canadians to feel that PowerPlay is our cozy home for sports betting.
