We were surprised to find in this MyBookie review Canada that there are a whole host of bonuses available to new users to choose from.
Firstly, for any new users looking to utilise the sportsbook, they can get a 50% matched first deposit. This carries a minimum deposit requirement of $50. You also can’t cash in any winnings from this offer within the first 30 days.
There’s also the option of a 100% casino bonus. You can deposit anything up to $300 and get a 100% match from MyBookie. What we did find in this MyBookie review Canada was that MyBookie has a 50-time wagering requirement to be eligible for this bonus. As well as this, Blackjack, craps, baccarat, sic bo, video poker, roulette, and pai gow don’t count towards this requirement.
While MyBookie prides itself on a wide range of offers, in this MyBookie review Canada, we found one nagging issue. The wagering requirements could vary depending on how much you deposit. This could start making the offers more complex and put those who want to deposit more funds at a disadvantage.
We also wanted to look into functionality and design as part of this MyBookie review of Canada. This plays a big part in any MyBookie review Canada as, ultimately, it determines whether the site is fun to play on and functional.
One nice touch in the sportsbook section of the site is that you can alter the time zone to match with where you’re based. This allows you to get a better visual on when games are going to start if you were keen to do some live in-play betting.
Frustratingly, though, this is only limited to four different US time zones, so it doesn’t cover as many as you would hope.
One very peculiar aspect that we came across when undertaking this MyBookie review for Canada, was how odds are displayed. While it’s possible to change this, frustratingly, you must contact customer support to action the change, and this can take up to 24 hours to complete.
With that being said, what we did find in this MyBookie review Canada was that the ease of getting from one section to another was very smooth and clear. There’s a range of tabs marked at the top of the site, which makes navigation simple and it is well laid out.
When it comes to betting, this is also an extremely simple process, at either the casino or sportsbook. The user interface is so easy to maneuver around and find what you are looking for.
When it comes to payments, we found in this MyBookie review Canada that it has a
reasonable range of deposit options and a relatively quick withdrawal time.
If you are looking to deposit as little as $25, then you can do so via Bitcoin. The minimum deposit on cards such as Visa and Mastercard, as well as by phone, is $45. If you wanted to use ACH or Person2Person, then the minimum deposit is $100, and that goes up to $2,000 for any bank transfers.
When it comes to the maximum you can deposit, this is set at $10,000 for Bitcoin, $500 for Person2Person, $1,000 for Visa and MasterCards, as well as via phone, and it is unlimited by bank transfer.
In terms of withdrawals, MyBookie offers Wire Transfers, Bitcoin, MoneyGram, or ACH. This is quite a limited number of choices compared to other casinos, and we found with this MyBookie review Canada that each withdrawal incurs a fee, which increases the more you try to withdraw. This disadvantages players with potentially more winnings at the site, which results in a bad user experience.
Our MyBookie review Canada found that it’s also worth noting that it takes up to two days to get a payout, and MyBookie only processes payments between Monday and Friday.
Customer service is an important part of any review, and this is no different from this MyBookie review Canada.
Excellent customer service is extremely important for any online gambling and should be non-negotiable for any operator, with it being such a competitive market.
MyBookie seems to have a very strong customer support service in place. This consists of three different types of contact options for you to choose from, from a live chat, telephone call, and contact form.
The contact form option allows you to directly message the MyBookie team through its website. This is simple and quick, and a member of the team will reply to you via email, on average, in less than 12 hours after your contact form has been sent in.
If that isn’t your preferred option, and you’d rather talk to a real-life member of staff, then there’s the option of calling them through its telephone support. You’ll be in touch with an agent quickly, and often they’re friendly, kindly, and knowledgeable.
Finally, we have a live chat option. From this MyBookie review Canada we found this is to be a great option, with answers being provided very quickly.
While MyBookie does have all of the necessary licenses and security in place to operate in Canada, it’s worth being aware that this company is closely associated with Bet On Sports. Bet On Sports has been known for its financial troubles in the past, and its original founders were even arrested back in 2006, with users losing a lot of money.
It’s definitely worth noting this when you consider whether you can deem this site as secure or not. We would like to see more from MyBookie next time we complete a MyBookie review for Canada.
One area we found in this MyBookie review Canada that it excels in is it’s loyalty bonuses for users. There are a whole host of ongoing offers for regular users at MyBookie.

Finally, you get 8% back on any blackjack losses made on the 21st of any month.
It’s worth bearing in mind that all of these come with terms and conditions. However, we found from this MyBookie review Canada that this was a great offering for existing players.
Let’s move this MyBookie review Canada into software for a moment. MyBookie has a whole host of different table games, video poker options, and slots, all of which are provided by the software provider BetSoft.
There are positives and negatives to BetSoft. One positive is that BetSoft has a wide portfolio of different games, including some unique 3D slots that you won’t see anywhere else.
One downside, however, is that BetSoft was recently part of a scandal where they did not pay out a progressive jackpot winner when a different casino had opted not to payout.
This makes it quite difficult to trust this software company due to its track record.
MyBookie does offer a range of different games, with 19 video poker variants, 52 different 3D Slots, 47 2D slots, and 26 different table games. The range of video poker options is impressive, with a wide range of game options, including some niche variants as well as the classics.
The 3D slot option is also a good one, with a range of different games and clever and unique designs. If this, however, isn’t your kettle of fish, then there are also the classics in its 2D slot portfolio.
As well as slots, there is also a range of table game options, such as Blackjack, roulette, and baccarat.
As well as table games, there are also live variants of these games as well, such as Blackjack HD, Baccarat, and European Roulette. However, there are only nine variants, which doesn’t include poker, so there’s work to be done here on both the site and app.
Each table game and slot have different limits, which will vary depending on what type of betting account you have with MyBookie. It’s worth checking this out before placing any large wagers.
In summary, MyBookie has a decent slots offering, including a range of 3D versions, which is a nice touch.
MyBookie Sports Betting
We found from this MyBookie review Canada that the sportsbook is relatively simple and easy to navigate.
It focuses primarily on sports popular in the US, such as NFL, NBA, and the BBL, but also some less popular sports as well. They also have odds on religion in the sportsbook, which was interesting. For example, there were odds on who the next pope will be.
While the odds are relatively competitive across the board, frustratingly, you must contact customer support to change how they’re displayed to best suit you as an individual player, and this can take up to 24 hours to complete, as mentioned previously.
Live Betting & Streaming
One aspect of the sportsbook that’s not very prominent on the site is MyBookie’s live-betting option. This is likely because it’s a much smaller game portfolio than the rest of the sportsbook. There are only opportunities to wager on NCAA football, NFL, NHL, MLB, and NBA to choose from, which does hinder this experience.
There are also no live streaming options, and the in-play betting options are certainly limited compared to other providers, which lost this provider points in our MyBookie review Canada.
MyBookie has extremely high minimum bets. The lowest you can do is a whopping $10.
Each game and betting event has different limits from there, which will vary, depending on what type of betting account you have with MyBookie. It’s worth checking this out before placing any large wagers.
So what was the conclusion of our MyBookie review Canada? In summary, with only 16 sports to choose from, and even fewer for live betting, this is a pretty mediocre sportsbook. While it’s promising that it offers offs on high-profile sports, it’s disappointing that there isn’t a wider range of choice.
MyBookie has extremely high minimum bets. The lowest you can do is $10.
Add to that the limited live-betting experience and lack of live-streaming, and you get an average sportsbook. There are certainly better offerings out there to choose from, especially if you’re looking to steer clear of the most mainstream sports out there.
And this concludes our MyBookie review Canada. While we could suggest that there are better operators out there to choose from, MyBookie may be worth the try. If you find the ongoing loyalty bonuses tempting, then you should consider going into further detail about itl before depositing any money into the site.
The website is easy to maneuver, with simple tabs for each section as well as fast loading screens. There’s a distinct lack of E-wallets, such as PayPal, Skrill, or Neteller. We also found with this MyBookie review Canada that each withdrawal incurs a fee, which increases the more you try and withdraw.
In our MyBookie review Canada, we feel that it’s worth noting that this company is closely associated with Bet On Sports, which has been known for its financial troubles in the past.
