Bonuses & Promos 5/5

Our online sportsbook review currently lists the main welcome bonus available as a 100% match on your first deposit up to a value of $150. To unlock this first deposit bonus offer, which is available to new Canadian players registering an account only, a minimum of $10 is required within seven days of registering.

New members will then have to wager their deposited amount at least once on odds of -200 or greater, for example -150, -100 and so on. Once this initial wager is completed, new members will automatically receive their 100% deposit bonus in their new accounts. The bonus will require additional wagering (rollover) of at least 2x and is valid for fourteen days after initial application.

Unlike a number of other online sportsbooks, Sportingbet.com feature a comprehensive rewards program for their sports bettors. The program is very similar to standard casino loyalty rewards programs and offers a points-based reward for every bet made at Sportingbet.com. Players can accumulate reward points and exchange them for cash bonuses and free bets.

Mobile Compatibility 4/5

One of the most important testing areas for our sportsbook review for Sportingbet.com is in their mobile betting platform. Being able to place quick sports bets on the go is becoming the number one deciding factor for CA players in 2020. Fortunately the sites offers a comprehensive mobile sports betting and casino platform which reflects the overall design, look and feel of the main site.

The mobile sports betting app is compatible with smartphones and tablets with iOS 7.0+ and Android OS 4.0+. Top features and new improvements to the Sportingbet.com mobile betting app include smooth horizontal scrolling to your favourite sports, an improved bet slip for quicker and easier single and multiple bets, and an all new dedicated In-Play (live betting) section.

Casino Games 5/5

Sportingbet.com is operated by ElectraWorks Limited and boasts more than 800 slots. The operator has some exclusive games developed in-house along with popular titles from the best studios such as NetEnt, Microgaming, Yggdrasil, Novomatic, Play'n GO, NYX, Blueprint Gaming and iSoftBet.

Some of the exclusive creations share progressive jackpots that can exceed C$1million. In fact, the collection of progressive slots is quite extensive and should definitely be checked out. A small bet here can turn into a massive payout.

Alternatives to the spinning reels come in the form of table games, video poker, instant win games, and live casino games. Sportingbet.com Casino has plenty of options across all of these categories. The live casino in particular attracts a great deal of customers in Canada for the high quality that Evolution Gaming provides for live blackjack, live baccarat, live poker, live roulette, and live Dream Catcher.

The online casino is fully available on the site so players don’t have to waste time downloading special applications. Also, a large portion of the collection is compatible with mobile devices so players can continue their winning sessions at any point throughout the day.

Conclusion

Our Guts review concludes with the sportsbook receiving high scores in most areas. Perhaps the only real low scoring area would be their lack of a wide range of sportsbook promotions. However, the few that they do have are solid and the crossover opportunity for Canadian sports bettors to try a few free spins is a great idea.

We find that, for a new online sportsbook option, the brand have done exceptionally well in a short space of time. The overall user experience on the Guts website is top notch, providing a smooth and quick betting platform, which also translates very well onto their mobile sports betting platform.
