Sports interaction were the first sports betting companies licensed in Canada. They have a Kahnawake gaming license to operate sports betting across the country.
They are a fantastic company to bet with and describe themselves as having the “gold standard” in sports betting. This shows through in their app and website which deliver an excellent service.

Sports Interaction has recently updated their mobile site to make navigation easier and its a very good update to see. You can now find the bets and markets on the sportsbook quicker than the previous version and they’ve now added quick links to the casino games section. With the app, you can skip from mobile sportsbook to live betting to casino games using the same account.
This is a real advantage if you like to play games as well as have a bet at the same time as you can have 2 mobile browsers open checking out both at the same time – you will need to refresh your balance on each browser after you’ve bet on the other one.
Here’s how the mobile site looks –
As you can see it has a solid blue background matching the companies branding and colourful quick links to major sports and events. To find more sports you can either swipe the quick links from right to left to tap the 3 lines in the top left-hand corner to access the full menu.
If there is a big game on featuring a Canadian team you’ll usually find this in the top header on the home page – Like the Ducks at the Maple Leafs in the image above. This usually covers NHL betting, NBA betting, NFL betting and occasionally the MLS.
A great addition to the app is the stats for sports such as the NBA and NFL. These apps cover all the recent form of the two teams and the head to head records. You can see a match preview or tab between each teams stats. To find the stats open the market for a specific game and if they are available you will see them in the top right corner of the markets. A great way to find an edge for your betting.
You’ll get all the major markets and matches as well as coupon views. For us, this is the place to bet on Canadian Hockey.
The choice of markets in the match view is exceptional –
- The main event – Moneyline and over and under markets
- Regulation time – Who will win at the end of regulation time
- The first team to score
- Double chance – Pick a win and a draw to cover both results, only applies to regulation time.
- Alternate markets – Puckline, Over/ under
- Period betting – !st/2nd – Over/ under, Moneyline, period goals, correct score, three-way.
- Goals race – First team to score 2,3 or 4 goals.
- Odd/ Even – Home team and away team score.
To change the market tap the arrow by money line in the top right corner. You’ll then get all the options listed above.
Sports Interaction has live betting on all major US sports and has over 200 live betting events a week, with 10 markets to choose from you’ll be sure to find something to bet on while watching the game.
The 100% bonus also applies to any bets placed on live betting via the mobile app or desktop site and the odds and markets are identical to the desktop site with live betting too.
When we were looking at the app there were lots of games to pick from with Basketball betting from all around the world as well as hockey betting. If you tab over to the schedule you can see the upcoming games of the day. Live betting covers the following major sports.
Here’s how the live betting section looks –
Whilst we are reviewing this as a casino app it is not a stand-alone app and can be accessed from the home page of the sportsbook. Just hit the casino tab from the sportsbook home and you’ll get straight to the mobile casino home page. Here you will find quick links to the separate sections of the casino –
The standard casino has everything you would expect to see –
- Card Games
- Table Games
- Video Poker
It’s all very nicely designed with the most popular games at the top of your screen and a good range of different tables. What we like about this section is the variety of games rather than just the standard blackjack tables they have twists on the games such as blackjack switch, all bets blackjack and live blackjack.
The range of slots is extensive with some awesome DC Comic branded slots games including Batman the Dark Knight Rises and the Justice League slots game. Our pick of the slots on the app are –
- Jekyll v Hyde
- Batman and the Joker Jewels
- Batman v Superman
- Top Trumps Football Stars – Sporting Legends edition
The choice is amazing and they have everything from classic slots games right through to some massive multi-reel jackpot slots.
The live casino has been a recent phenomenon in gaming apps as one major provider supplies the streams for most apps. Sports Interaction does, however, have some exclusive live streams that you won’t find anywhere else. This comes in the form of the mixed game Blackjack 777 and is well worth checking out.
Live casino game available –
- Blackjack 777
- Spin a win
- Soho Blackjack
- Mystery Roulette
- Dragon Tiger
- 3 card brag
- Casino Hold-Em
There are various tables available and live games on 24 hours a day, although you may find fewer games available at quieter times.
On the app, you have full access to your account for all your needs. You can check your recent deposits, change your password and details and check the status of your recent bets.
There is also an option for a live chat customer support system if you have any questions or issues you need to discuss. They will not, however, give you any betting tips as we tried!
Once you’re registered and are ready to deposit there’s a good choice of depositing options to select.
At the time of review these included (Subject to change)
- Instant Banking
You cannot deposit via any credit cards you may have as this is outside the regulations fro Sports Interaction.
You will be pleased to know the app complies with all the latest security needed for mobile software. They keep updating these to make sure all your details are safely stored. Here are the security features when we reviewed the app.
