Betting App Reviews
1 – Sports Interaction App
Sports Interaction was the first licensed sportsbook and casino in the country and they continue to be the leader. Their platform is solid and has a huge range of Canadian sports to bet on as well as other sports from all around the world. That’s alongside, in our opinion, the best mobile casino in Canada!
How to get the apps
Android – Follow the link in the table above and you’ll be able to add the mobile site to your home screen as an app. There is currently no app on Google Play or a dedicated APK so installing the web app won’t take any noticeable space off your storage!
iPhone & iPad – On the mobile home page click the + on your browser when you’re on the mobile home and it will appear like an app. There is currently a Sports Interaction poker app on iTunes that you can download but the reviews of it recently are not brilliant.
About Sports Interaction
Currently, they are licensed in Canada for sports poker and casino and more recently for betting and casino in New Jersey. The license comes under Mohawk online limited, owned by the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake.
Here’s how the app looks
We think you’ll be happy betting with Sports Interaction! You can find our in-depth review of the Sports Interaction app here.
2 – bet365 App
Bet365 was joint number one in our testing from a Canadian mobile. This and the Sports Interaction app are both excellent apps and there is no splitting them!
Our review of this app is based on our opinions when using the app, details and layouts may change in future updates.
Using the app in Canada is very similar to the rest of the world as the mobile version runs from the bet365.com main site. This means you get all the same features and layout as most countries in the world. Access the app or site from Canada will change your home page as there is more of a focus on popular Canadian sports such as NHL and NBA. If any Candian teams are in action these will usually be featured on the home page.
What we like about this app specifically are the bet builders. These allow you to place multiple bets on the same game on NFL matches and NBA matches. To find them on the app you need to go to the match and you’ll find a tab called “bet builder”. We have not seen any other betting apps in Canada that can match the quality of this feature.
3 – 22bet App
22bet is a recent addition to our list as they are a relatively new betting company. They have a full license via Kahnawake gambling authority to operate in the country. They also have one of the widest choices of depositing options. These include, but are not limited to –
- Debit/ Credit cards
We were impressed with the range that was on offer here. They also have over 1,000 daily events to bet on, on average covering sporting events like NBA, Ice Hockey and the NFL.
4 – William Hill Canada App
William Hill started out life as a UK bookmaker back in the early 1900s. They now a global PLC covering markets such as Canada, UK and the various American States too. Their app is mobile-based for Canadian users on both iPhone and Android.
The platform will recognise that you are in Canada and then present you with the localised information. The app home pages and defaults should be as follows –
- Canadian sports teams featured on the home page.
- The main focused sports are NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB
- The default settings are for American style odds (+100 etc), these can be changed in the app settings under the more or my account tab
The app does include some casino games from the top tab bars. This covers standard table games and slots.
5 – Bet Victor App
As you may be starting to sense, betting apps in Canada mainly come from the UK established betting companies. In 4th place on our list is another one, from Bet Victor. These again started life with betting shops and then move online.
What we like most about this app is the simplicity of using it. It has a really good crisp design than is easy to look at and has a good navigation system. The design is a little more basic than some others with a grey and blue theme. It performed very well in testing and although there are others higher up in the list this app still comes with our recommendation for beginners or a more casual bettor.
6 – Betway Sports App
The app that is all about the bonuses! Betway’s sports are a company that we have found love an offer – a welcome bonus for new customers followed by offers galore for existing customers!
You can get things started with a 100% first deposit bonus up to $200. This is a standard type of offer, you make a first deposit and they match it! There are some terms and conditions attached that you’ll need to follow to make sure you claim it correctly.
After that check out the promotions tab on the app to see the latest offers. You can also go to the home page for each sport and see the daily odds boosts where some prices have been boosted for selected games from the big 4 sports.

Here is everything you need to know about mobile sports betting.
Best Android betting apps
The Google play store does not currently allow real money gambling apps in the Canadian Play Store. There are very few countries around the world where it is allowed. For our Android ratings, we used the standard mobile browser for each sportsbook.
Here is our top 7 based purely on Android ratings
- Sports Interaction Android app
- bet365 Android app
- 22bet Android app
- William Hill Android app
- Betway Android app
- Bet Victor Android app

How to install Android betting apps
Android users have one option for installing – you can install the mobile site as a short cut. To do this go to the home page of the site and tap the 3 lines for the browser menu, then select “Add shortcut to home”. This will give me an app icon on your screen and take you straight to the mobile home screen on your browser when you press it.
- Live streaming – Varies by app
- Secure logins
- Inbuilt casino games and slots
- Other gambling sites that you can use from the same account (Casino/ poker)
To ensure you can download these apps it is best to have the latest Android software installed. If you have an older version you may not be able to get the app, you would then need to install the mobile site short cut instead.
iPhone & iPad betting apps
There is a full range of iPhone betting apps that are available on the App Store. These can all be downloaded for free and you will need to register before you can bet. Apps are regularly updated, so to make sure you get the best experience keep them up to date!

Is sport betting legal in Canada?
This is a longer form question, but the short answer is that it is not illegal. Canadain laws on gambling seem outdated since the growth of online betting. Apps we feature are all safe to use from Canada. The Sports Interaction app, which is our top-rated app runs on license from the Kahnawake gaming commission.
What is multi-betting?
Also known as parlays and accumulators, multi-betting allows you to combine up to 25 single bets into one larger bet and combines the odds of all the singes. In order for a multi-bet to win, you’ll need each leg you’ve selected to win if one loses then the whole bet loses.
Why do the odds change in live betting?
If you’re betting on an app with live betting you many notices the odds change before you get the bet placed and you have to reconfirm. This is due to the changing conditions affecting the odds. This can be a thing such as goals scored, runs scored, wickets are taken and time changes. It’s perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.
What are bet builders?
Bet builders are becoming very popular across betting apps. They allow you to place multiple bets on the same game.
What is the best betting app?
From our independent ratings, we have selected the Sports Interaction app as the best overall betting app.
Are the odds different on betting apps?
No, the odds for the desktop site, betting app and mobile site are all the same.
Can I cash out on betting apps?
Yes, all the betting apps we feature have different cash out options. On most apps, you need to go to either the cash out tab at the bottom or into my account and then my bets to see your offers. Some also have partial cash out options available including Bet Victor and bet365.
