There is plenty of anticipation in Canada as a number of sportsbook and casino operators from here in the US are set to launch in Ontario later this year, and our TheScore Bet review will tell you what residents can expect.
We’ll look at TheScore Bet Ontario sportsbook and if there is going to be a TheScore Bet Ontario online casino. We’ll also look at payment options, how the site looks and functions, security, and lots more. Read on to learn all about it!
TheScore: Pros & Cons
- Native Canadian company
- Straightforward wagering requirements
- App based sportsbook
- No desktop betting option
TheScore Bet Ontario sportsbook is not like other sportsbooks, in that you cannot place a bet on their desktop site. You can get news, read a wealth of articles, but if you want to place a bet on your favorite sport, you’ll need to download TheScore Bet sports Ontario app. This might be a dealbreaker for some, but as most of the world operates using a phone for everything else, for others it will be the best sportsbook in Ontario.
Using the TheScore Bet Ontario app is easy to use, and even though it is a condensed version of what you’d see on your computer screen, plenty of thought has gone into the design, and basic functions like depositing and withdrawing are a breeze.
Even though TheScore Bet Ontario sportsbook will be opening soon, we do not yet know which payment methods will be accepted. As their operation here in the US accepts PayPal, Play+ and card deposits among their options, you would expect the same to apply in Ontario with some regional additions. Deposits have a minimum amount of $10, and appear in your account as soon as you receive your transaction confirmation.
Withdrawals are likely to be available by bank transfer, debit card and Play+ and take 1-3 business days. Which is longer than deposits, but this is the same everywhere.
If there is one thing the best online gambling sites in Ontario are going to have in common, it is that their customer service will be excellent. If what we have seen elsewhere is any indication of what Ontario bettors will be getting, they should have very few problems. We can’t confirm all of the details before launch, but email is available if you have problems, as is a central phone number for everywhere.
There is a very good FAQ section that covers a lot of the queries that new Ontario bettors are likely to have, which like everything else is easy to operate from your phone.
While still a work in progress, TheScore Bet has already received a certificate of registration from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), prior to the April launch of TheScore Bet Ontario sportsbook. This should put to rest any worries Ontario bettors have about opening an account.
TheScore Bet is already part of a Canadian media group, so the name will be familiar to you if you are one of those Ontario bettors. There have also been questions about whether there will be a Bet365 Ontario online casino and a TheScore Bet casino, and while you will have to check out our Bet365 for information about them, there is no extra information about a TheScore Bet casino license in the future.
So if you were expecting this to be one of the best Ontario online casinos, you might be disappointed, likewise if you wanted to place bets on your laptop. But what you do get is a mobile app that does everything you could possibly want an online sportsbook to do.
Yes, the TheScore Bet sportsbook is not like other sportsbooks, but at the same time many people in Ontario may be looking for something different, and wouldn’t consider this a bad thing at all, it may even be a plus!
