Pinnacle Sports was launched back in 1998 and is a well-known sports betting site for Canadian players. It is licensed in the Netherlands Antilles, Curacao and offers great odds for all major sporting events including most American Sports. Pinnacle has one of the lowest margins in the industry giving bettors excellent value. They often offer the best betting lines and have an excellent reputation for their top class operation.

Pros and Cons for Pinnacle's Sportsbook

  • Best provider for betting professionals and experienced high rollers
  • Excellent odds on a wide range of sports
  • Best price on Asian handicaps on soccer
  • Best odds on NFL and NCCA football bets
  • Winner types are not slowed down as quickly as at other bookmakers
  • They make money on the amounts of bets not at the cost of the sports bettor
  • Site layout can feel a little old fashioned
  • There are withdrawal fees for those who withdraw more than once per month

Pinnacle Sports Betting Bonus and Promotions for Canada

There is no special welcome bonus available to new Canadian players at Pinnacle sports book. There are occasional promotions and bonuses offered once you sign up for an account though so be sure to keep an eye out for these and any bonus codes that you can use. We recommend checking out the Pinnacle Sports "Bet of the Day" promo that offers enhanced pricing on a different selected event each day as you can get great deals here with markets priced as low as 101%.

Mobile Betting

If you prefer to place bets with your bookmaker using your mobile phone, you will be delighted to hear that Pinnacle have a dedicated mobile app called Pinnacle Lite which is available for iOS user with an Android app on the way. This mobile betting app allows you to quickly get the best bet available. You can see the recent odds changes and set up alerts for certain prices covering six different sports markets. The app is very user-friendly and allows users to place their bets on the go so they never miss out on the action.

In Play Betting/Live Betting

When it comes to in-play betting at Pinnacle we were a little disappointed. In-play bets are only offered for top leagues in football as well as for US sports types. We are hoping that this bookmaker will see the value and necessity of catching up with other sports betting sites when it comes to the OpenOdds team. Even the most professional sports bettors want the option to have in-play bet experiences available to them every so often.

Odds and Betting Limits

As far as betting odds go, Pinnacle Sports betting odds really are remarkable. This bookmaker earns money with their sports betting offers but not at the cost of the betting odds. The betting odds that you will find on this site are almost as good as those of a betting exchange, but Pinnacle is still as strict as any other bookmaker on the market. In order to make their "lower margins through high volumes" model work, this sports betting site targets serious and successful players who bring in these high volumes via deposits and cashouts. This is an innovative approach that has proven to be very successful for them.

Betting limits are also in place and this is a minimum bet limit of $1 per wager placed which means all bettors can take part even novices. They also have exceptionally high maximum bet limits which are set at $750,000 per bet. This will satisfy even all professional bettors although you would want to be very sure of winning to place such a large wager.

Pinnacle Sports Interface

In this section we were looking at user-friendliness and the ability to place bets with the same quality on a mobile device as you can on your desktop. The site is efficient and very user-friendly although some sections are a little out-dated and not as modern as we would have liked them to be. What we really love is the fact that they have a separate mobile optimized section for bettors visiting the website on their smartphones and tablets and it works really well. Everything is easy to find and after a couple of visits, you will know where everything is.

Deposit and Withdrawal Methods

Managing your account at Pinnacle bookmaker is easy. The site accepts 20 different currencies including Canadian dollars, Euro, Australian dollars, British pounds sterling, US dollars and a number of Asian currencies. There are plenty of deposit methods available too including bank wire, credit and debit cards, ClickandBuy, e-check, EntroPay, E-Payments, Instadebit, Neteller, Skrill, Ukash and more. The full list can be found on their website.

When it comes to withdrawals, it is worth noting that you only get one free withdrawal per month. There is no minimum withdrawal amount. Additional withdrawals each month incur a fee and this is generally around $15 per transaction for electronic funds transfer and $25 for checks and bank wires. Withdrawals back to credit cards are no longer supported.

Customer Support

Support is a little disappointing. You can only contact the Pinnacle customer support team via email. There is no live chat and no telephone support available. The site does have a FAQs section that you can go through before sending a message to the support team. It should be noted that the support team is very fast, helpful and friendly.

Our Pinnacle Sportsbook Recommendation

Overall, Pinnacle Sports offers a good range of sports and excellent football coverage. They have great prices and they do offer bonuses and promotions on a regular basis. Even without a welcome bonus, Pinnacle is an excellent sports betting site and if you are serious about betting on sporting events this site is hard to beat. You can place wagers on soccer, tennis, Aussie Rules, baseball, basketball, boxing, chess, cricket, eSports, football, golf, mixed martial arts, rugby league, rugby union, soccer, and even table tennis. There are plenty specials too including eSports and politics.
