PowerPlay Betting Bonus and Promotions for Canada

Newcomers who sign up at PowerPlay Sportsbook can enjoy the best possible start to betting thanks to free bets worth up to $100, whether opting to play by mobile or desktop. Canadians seeking to take advantage of this promotion will receive it as matched bets of up to $50 on the first two bets made at PowerPlay Sportsbook. The bonus must be activated by clicking the drop down menu during the process of betting. It's important to note that the odds must exceed 3.0/+200, so you cannot use this on an odds on favourite.

Free betting opportunities also come via free bets on the NHL, NBA, NFL/NCAA, and tennis, with a $20 free bet for betting $100 live (ideal for mobile wagering). Parlay bets (5+) on North American sports also sees Canadian players receive something extra in the form of 10% more should the bets come off.

Mobile Betting

Canadians into mobile betting will be able to use PowerPlay Sportsbook with their smartphone or tablet, although there is no specific information regarding any kind of specialized app.

In Play Betting/Live Betting

Live betting is a must for a top online sports betting site, and one of the best ways for wagering via mobile. Thankfully, this is fully supported at PowerPlay Sportsbook, which presents a convenient Bet Live button on the top menu that not only lists currently live sporting events but also upcoming matches, which can be easily sorted by category so you can quickly find what you want (essential when betting on sport that is currently underway). In-play betting, particularly by mobile, can be used to great effect when a long odds bet is looking good but you want to cover it just in case the unexpected happens, and it's conveniently provided right here.

PowerPlay Sportsbook Interface

The ease of navigating the live betting section has already been mentioned, and this user-friendly approach is also adopted by the site when it comes to odds, which can be set to decimal, fractional, or American styles as the player likes. A handful of the most popular sports have their own buttons at the top, while the left hand listing comprehensively covers a wide range of sports that Canadians might be interesting in betting on, whether by mobile or desktop, including esports and virtual sports. Popular events and sports top the list so they can rapidly be found. The general black and red design is well chosen because it offers clarity without the uncomfortable brightness that some mostly white sites inflict on bettors. There are five language options available (English, Portuguese, Spanish, French, and German).

Deposit and Withdrawal Methods

Canadians have a choice of seven different depositing methods at PowerPlay Sportsbook, which can be handled via desktop or mobile device. In addition, five of these can be used to withdraw winnings. Pre-paid option Paysafecard is deposit-only, as is commonplace, and has lower and upper limits of $10 and $3,500 respectively, with instant transfer times and no associated fee (as per every depositing method at this site). Interac e-transfers and online and both are top picks for Canadians (the former can also be used for withdrawals), with a minimum deposit of $10 and upper limits determined by a player's bank.

The MuchBetter payment app is a popular means of moving money by mobile, and, as per Interac, has an upper limit determined by one's bank. As with all depositing methods, the transfers are immediate and without a fee. Other means of moving money into PowerPlay Sportsbook include Visa and Mastercard, ecoPayz, and Cryptopay.

When it comes to withdrawals, the lower limit is commonly $10 and all save Interac have an upper limit of $9,999 (the Interac limit is $3,000 per 24 hours). The processing times are all longer, at least hours, with Visa, Mastercard, and ecoPayz the most rapid (0-4 hours in total) and mobile app MuchBetter the longest (up to 5 business days). Fees are variable, with a 3% fee under $100 and free withdrawals over that threshold.

Customer Support

Queries can often be readily answered by the extensive, and easily searchable, set of FAQs on the support page of PowerPlay Sportsbook, covering topics from mobile app MuchBetter to sports betting subjects. In addition to this, Canadian players with queries can get in touch with the customer support team on a 24/7 basis, by live chat, e-mail, Facebook, and the good old-fashioned telephone.

Our PowerPlay Sportsbook Recommendation

There's a lot to like about PowerPlay Sportsbook. The design is very nice, from the colour scheme that furnishes clarity without any jarringly bright notes, to the straightforward and swift navigational set up which makes it quick and easy to find what you are looking after (especially important in the well-designed live betting section when faffing about can see the odds change rapidly). The free bet bonuses accessible for players by both mobile and desktop is another nice feature, especially as these promos come in both welcome deals for newcomers and as recurring promotions for existing players, so there are reasons to both sign up and stick around.

While it's true the depositing and withdrawal methods could be more numerous the top choice for Canadian betting, Interac, is available for transfers both into and out of the site, which is a nice little bonus, and payments can be made easily by both mobile and desktop.

The range of sports is good, and odds can be set up to whatever your preferred format is. Not only that, French Canadians betting here can opt for French as a supported language. Overall, PowerPlay Sportsbook is a site well worth checking out.
