Since the explosion of mobile betting, everyone wants to know which is the best Canadian betting app. Lets face it, now that you can bet online, you don’t want to be restricted to where or when you can enjoy that privilege
In this latest guide we will look closely at five of the top betting brands that offer either native betting apps in Canada, or fully optimized mobile sites and we will also share our expert tips on what you should look out for when choosing a new betting app.
Our table below quickly highlights which operator does and does not have an app. And although it may seem a little disappointing that not all of the sites have an app available, we’ve found in past experience that an app isn’t alway necessary. As long as there is a mobile optimized site which all the Canadian betting sites listed below have. Read on for a review of each app/ mobile site in detail.
|Operator||Android App||iOS App||Mobile optimized site|
Although there is no app to download, Stake.com does have a mobile optimized site and we’re inclined to think this is equally as good. The reason being is there is nothing to download, no additional space or passwords required, no questioning that you’ve selected the right one and not some dodgy imitation. Just use your browser and access the mobile site and if you want to make it even simpler; add it to your home screen.
From here you will find access to everything that is on the main site. So if you’re new you will still be able to access the exclusive Welcome offer and claim a 200% matched deposit up to $2000 using code TGTSTAKE.
You will still be able to bet on over 35 sports, access more than 1000 slots and even play live games of BlackJack or Poker whilst sitting on the bus. Talk about making Vegas mobile!
The BC.Game mobile site is as good as any of the best gambling apps in Canada. The layout is tidy and makes use of scrolling features. You can easily deposit and make withdrawals. Gameplay is no different and best of all it’s still possible to access the message board and join in with the chat which is what this casino is so good at. The only issue we had with this is because of the screen size the chat opens up across the whole of the screen so it’s not possible to chat whilst playing on the slots quite as easily as it is on a desktop.
You will probably find this app at the top of every list of ‘top 10 Canada betting apps’. And there is a pretty good reason for this. It’s Bet365 and they know what they’re doing when it comes to anything sports betting related. Do you want to live stream via the app? No problem as long as you have some funds in your account and have placed a bet within the last 24 hours. You want to claim an odds boost, top up your account and query an unsettled bet with customer service? Again, all this can be carried out within the app. Undoubtedly this is the best football betting app in Canada – simply for the live streaming option, in-play bets and amount of bet types that you can place including bet builders, props and accas.
One of the new gambling sites to Canada is Vave, a crypto focussed betting site, which claims the ability to download an app for both android and iOS on their desktop site. However, we have yet to discover an official Vave betting app. Therefore we are inclined to believe that there currently is no app although this could be something that’s due to change. Regardless, the mobile optimized site looks good. It’s uncluttered and easy to navigate. Games load up quickly and perfectly adjust to fit on the screen.
As with the online site this is a crypto only platform however if playing via mobile there are also mobile payment options such as phone bills and Apple pay channels. And most importantly that very generous Welcome cash back bonus of up to 1BTC is available to those using the app as well as the main site. Cue collective sigh.
The GG Bet for android looks sleek, really sleek. The dark background with the bright imagery overlaid stands out and just makes for a contemporary looking site. Uncluttered and easy to navigate, the app has everything you would want from an app. But what about those with iOS? Fortunately GG Bet has catered to them with a fully optimized mobile site.
From both the mobile site and app players can enjoy more than 5,000 slots, over 100 live casino experiences and a whole load of game shows. But where this casino makes its mark is in the Esports arena with 15+ offerings including Fifa, NBA 2K18, League of Legends and Call of Duty.
Signing up for a new betting app in Canada can actually be quite daunting however its much the same as signing up with a new sportsbook or casino, there are a few key areas to look out for, which we will share below;
As we’ve seen in this review some of the betting sites will have an app that is supported by one operating system and not the other. So if it’s the app you’re after, make sure it’s compatible.
Apps that come with 2 factor authentication are always a safer bet especially if you have cash sitting in them waiting to be spent.
Check out the user reviews and ratings on the app store. Sometimes the main site might be great but the app can be a bit glitchy and not work as you’d hope.
The sign up bonuses for betting sites in Canada are pretty impressive from what we’ve seen. But before you rush off to the app store, it’s worth checking that the bonus can be claimed if you sign up via the app rather than the main site or even if there is an incentive offer for downloading and using the app.
Does the app provide secure and convenient payment options? Our Vave review highlighted additional payment options if playing on the mobile site and this may well be true of all of them claiming to be the best Canadian betting app.
Surprisingly the sites that we reviewed didn’t all have betting apps for Canada, and most surprisingly of the bunch was the lack of the Stake.com app. HOWEVER, it didn’t seem to matter. Technology, website design and responsiveness have come on so much that having a mobile optimized site is now as common as Saturday Hockey Night in Canada. All the mobile sites had the same functionality as the main site whilst making use of scrolling screens and clutter free displays. In fact not using an app actually seems to be the easier option as no downloading is required and you can easily add the site to your homepage for future visits at just a tap.
BUT if an app is really what you desire then take heed of our expert tips and you should be well on your way to a safe and enjoyable gaming experience on your mobile app.
The best sports betting app in Canada is probably Bet365. It has all the features of the main site, is easy to use and allows for live streaming (provided there is money in your account and a bet has been placed in the last 24 hours) and in-play betting. Basically all the best bits of the main site but pocket sized.
KBetting apps are perfectly safe to use provided that you use a casino that is licensed and regulated and you download the official app for the provider. A lot of apps also come with 2 factor authentication for added security.
Yes. All the apps and mobile sites we reviewed allow for the deposit and withdrawal of funds. In fact, playing by mobile can actually open up more payment options as it allows users to pay by mobile methods as well as the main methods listed on the site.
