About My Hockey Betting Listings:

Why is my list so short?  I only list those sites that I consider to be the best for Canadians. Would it really make sense for me to research twenty betting companies and then rank them one through 20?  Would you sign up with sportsbook number 16?  Of course not!

That’s why I try to keep things simple.  If a company doesn’t measure up against my Canadian perspective, they don’t get listed.

Why might a site fail to get listed?  Limited hockey betting offerings, poor payout record like withholding bettor funds or placing limits on the accounts of winning players, not offering CAD wagering or not offering mobile betting.

Each listed site has satisfied my review criteria, but they are each different in their service offerings. So read the reviews and choose based on your own preferences and requirements, not a bogus rating scheme.  If you like to shop for the best odds, it might make sense to sign up with more than one so that you can maximise your winnings.  

How to choose a sportsbook for hockey betting

The first thing of importance to establish is that you’re in Canada.  There are some really good sportsbooks around the world, but only a few of them have decided to cater to the Canadian market by offering Canadian Dollar accounts and Canadian friendly deposit methods like Interac Email Transfer or other e-wallets providers.  Why is this important?  If you are forced to exchange your Canadian Dollars into a betting balance in British Pounds, Euros or US Dollars, you will lose a significant portion of your deposit value and  potentially your winnings due to currency exchange fees and fluctuations.  There is no need to pay these fees or lose money to currency fluctuations, you need to know which services accept Canadian Dollar betting.  You have to be careful with this.  Don’t assume that if a brand is advertising on TV in Canada that they accept your CAD deposits for direct CAD betting.  I can tell you that there are several big brands with famous spokespeople that force you to convert your deposit into a US Dollar, Britsh Pound or Euro bankroll.  Make sure you know they accept your native currency before signing up.

The second thing to establish is how often you see yourself using your sportsbook account.  This will help you to understand whether or not you’d like to take advantage of a deposit bonus or not.  If you see yourself as a casual player, betting maybe once a week or whenever an interesting game comes up, then perhaps you can pad your bankroll with some free bets or a deposit bonus.  However, if you see yourself as a frequent bettor, betting several times a week, even several times a day, you may want to sign up with the betting site that consistently provides you with higher paying odds.  If you play a lot, the higher paying odds will add up over a short period of time and be worth significantly more than any sign-up bonus ever could.  It comes down to delayed gratification.  If you’re in it for the long term, go with the low juice (high odds) sports betting site.

The third thing to consider is knowing what you like to wager on.  Every site I list offers the typical betting types for hockey and most other sports.  These would be bets on moneyline, against the puck line (spread) and totals (over/under).  If this is all you’re interested in, the only difference in the site offerings will be the odds pricing for each particular game.  However, when it comes to the hockey prop bets, each site has their own unique variety of what is offered and you can read about what they offer on my hockey prop betting page.

The last thing to consider in selecting a hockey sportsbook is the company’s reputation and track record.  There are scam sportsbooks sites to that essentially try to steal from their bettors to varying degrees.  Some are pure scam sites that will never payout and are purely in existence to essentially steal your cash.  Others sites may not be full–on scam sites but they do operate in a manner that can be considered unfair where bettor accounts may be limited, especially if the bettor wins a lot.  Each of the sites I’ve listed have impeccable track records in operating fairly and in their payout record and all have been in business for a significant period of time.
