Sportbet Canada Introduction

Featuring a sportsbook that is loaded with sports of all sorts, regular and LIVE dealer casinos, plus racebook, poker and bingo betting action, there is something for everyone at Sportbet. Available to Canadians from coast to coast, Sportbet offers a vast array of player rewards, contests and betting tools that help bettors make informed handicapping decisions. An intuitive LIVE wagering platform, available with most internet accessible devices, keeps bettors connected from anywhere in Canada.

  • Sign-up Bonus


    Vast in variety, Sportbet offers new customers a choice of sign up bonus options. All newly created accounts are credited with the 30% Super Saver Bonus Program welcome bonus automatically. This player reward includes -107 reduced juice pricing on a wide selection of sports lines. Customers who prefer free plays, or cash back offers, can contact the client care crew through LIVE Chat to discuss switching up their first deposit bonus choice. Please review the bonus terms and conditions prior to accepting any cash back player rewards.

  • Promos & Contests


    Beyond the sign up bonus rewards, Sportbet offers an extensive list of promotions and contests. That includes the Sportbet Betting Contest that pays prizes for streaks of 5, 10, 15 and 25 consecutive winning picks – the latter pays a $2500 cash prize. Horse bettors receive real-time odds, from top North American tracks, plus an additional 10% on all successful “WIN” and Exotic tickets cashed in the Racebook. Casino players can collect special bonuses that are listed on an informative "Bonus Page" at the Sportbet website. 

  • Website


    Although they display a different look, a black background (instead of white) being the main difference, the Sportbet website is basically a carbon copy of their parent company 5Dimes. That includes their title bar, which facilitates easy access to each betting option. Running across the top of the page, left to right, the platforms offered are a Sportsbook, Casino, Live Dealer Casino, Mini Games, Racebook, Lottery, Bingo, and Poker. A minor distraction - the home page is very busy as fast rotating ads change every two seconds.

  • Live Betting


    Offered on a wide range of sports, Sportbet delivers exciting real time action through their Ultra and Extra platforms. In-game wagering includes money line and spread bets, plus proposition offers like which team will reach a certain point level or which player will score next. Parlay fans have easy access to LIVE betting on Soccer, American Football, Hockey, Baseball, Basketball, Tennis and Golf. Fans of table games have access to LIVE Dealers while playing Baccarat, Blackjack and Roulette in the Sportbet Vegas Live Casino.

  • Customer Service


    Available around the clock, 365 days per year, connecting to Sportbet Customer Service is quick and easy. Clients with an active account can receive help on any issues they may have via Live Chat. We found the client care reps to be personable, professional and helpful. As one of the most interactive betting companies, Sportbet is one of very few sites that still actually encourage sports and horse wagering via toll free phone operators. The Sportbet “Help Center” FAQ page is a handy quick reference and email support is also offered.

  • Betting Lines


    Boasting some of the sharpest lines in the online sports betting industry, Sportbet is famous for their -107 reduced juice odds. Players who accept the 30% Super Saver bonus receive lower vigorish on Football, Baseball, Hockey, Basketball, Tennis and Boxing/MMA wagers. Those odds are applied to variety of betting options including ATS, straight up, game total and parlay bets. Sportbet doesn’t wait around for the competition to post prices as their early lines are always some of the first available anywhere online - especially NFL odds.

  • Deposit Methods


    All Sportbet clients, who must at least 18 years of age to access the site, have access to a wide variety of deposit and withdrawal options in the banking section. We were somewhat surprised that the account funding minimum is $50 USD when using credit cards. Financial transactions flow through modern security protocols and funds are quickly transferred to a private bankroll with most deposit methods. Players must verify their personal information with the Sportbet Client Certification Staff prior to submitting each cashout request.

  • Mobile Betting


    Though not promoted at the website, bettors can take Sportbet with them when they are on the go as the main website is accessible from most smart phones, tablets and laptops. As long as bettors have an internet supported and connected device, betting on the fly in the sportsbook, casino, racebook, or on the Grand Poker Network, is a breeze. Loading lightning fast, with a clean look and very intuitive feel, we used an iPad to test the system and we are not hesitant about giving two thumbs up to remote wagering with Sportbet. 

Sportbet Bottom Line Recommendation

As mentioned in the opening, Sportbet is part of the 5Dimes wagering group. Not meant to deceive or mislead bettors, this is a common practice in the online sports betting industry just as brick and mortar casinos like Mandalay Bay and Aria are part of the MGM group in Las Vegas. Once players are registered and fund their bankroll, via the quick and secure signup and banking processes, they gain instant access to 5Dimes and Sportbet as their user ID and password are accepted at both sites.

Prior to their merger with 5Dimes, Sportbet was viewed by some as an average wagering website. That perception changed dramatically as 5Dimes has been one of the most respected bookmakers in the online betting since their inception in 1996. Loaded with an abundance of North American and International sports handicapping options, many offered with reduced vig pricing, Canada Sports Betting recommends adding Sportbet as part of a solid stable of go to online sportsbooks.
