Sports Interaction App Review
Sports interaction were the first sports betting companies licensed in North America and are also very popular in Canada. They currently have a license to operate a mobile sports book in New Jersey state too. They do accept customers from all around the world too.
They feature highly in our guide to Canadian betting as well as our guide to mobile betting in the USA.
The Sports interaction mobile app can be installed on any mobile device in a couple of minutes and is a brilliant way to bet with Sports interaction wherever you are! It’s easy to use, provides a wide range of sports markets to bet on and also provides a casino platform where you can enjoy playing casino slots and table games, including Roulette & Blackjack.

How to install the Sports Interaction App
Sports interaction are an absolutely fantastic company to bet with and describe themselves as having the “gold standard” in sports betting. When you join you’ll get a 100% bonus on your first deposit up to $125 to start betting with!
From the mobile home page you can sign up in two ways, both are very quick and easy. Usually, when you land on the Sports Interaction mobile home page there’s a banner near the top with the offer and “click here to join” just follow this through and you’ll be sure to get the bonus. If the banner isn’t there just hit the menu in the top left corner and there’s a “sign up” option available. There are only 2 steps to signing up so you can be registered in less than 3 minutes.
Android/ Mobile Download guide
As this is a mobile site its really easy to install, just make sure you use the link above to access the mobile site. From the home page, you’ll need to add the quick link to your phone, on the iPhone, it’s “add to home screen” from the bottom menu. On Android, use menu key then “add to home screen” and on Blackberry do the same using the Blackberry menu button.
You can now access the app any time you want by pressing the icon. As this is a mobile install rather than an official download this will load in your phone or tablets browser. Due to current regulations, there is no official app on the Google Play Store, iTunes app store or Blackberry World (correct at time of writing). This is the only way to install Sports Interaction mobile.
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 sports book 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.
As you’d expect there are a lot of markets to bet on NBA games across the states including the Raptors games #WeTheNorth. The Sports Interaction app is so good we’ve included it in our best NBA sportsbook apps guide!
As well as the vast choice of markets you also have access to the coupons where you can place your multiples or parlay bets. This app has one of the widest choices of coupons that we have seen in testing across all American and Canadian based apps. To find the coupons use the NBA quick link on the home page, you will then get to the NBA home page. Tap the small arrow next to “pointspread” from the NBA home page to get the list of coupons up as shown below –
You will now get a scrolling wheel up at the bottom of the page to select what coupon you would like to view as shown below –
Then tap done and your coupon will load ready for you to see the odds and get your Parlay bets on.
At the time of our app review, we found the following coupons available – These are subject to change, check the app to see what is available.
- Over/ Under – match, teams, first half, the second half
- Money Line – Match, first half, the second half
- First Half
- Alternate Spread 1
- Odd/ Even – Game total, half, home team, away team
- Quarter Moneyline
- First team to score
- Race to points – 20, 30, 40 & 50
- Winning Margin
- Half Moneyline
As you can see this is a wide range of coupons and if you are new to betting you may not know what they all are. The easiest ones to start with, in this case, are the money line – Who will win or lose, and the over/ under – Will the match go over a certain number of points.
At a single game level, you can combine these as a simple match Parlay. For example, you could back the Raptors to win and the match to go over 200 points. If the Raptors win 101 to 99 you would lose your bet as that is exactly 200 points, so not over the 200, but if they win 102 to 99 then your bet would win. It is our advice to take some time to get used to the type of bets before you start betting with big stakes.

As you’d expect from a Canadian bookmaker hockey betting is a key focus of the app! 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 –
- Main event – Moneyline and over and under markets
- Regulation time – Who will win at the end of regulation time
- 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.
They’ve also committed to delivering their customers the most exciting live betting experience. They have live betting on all major US sports and have 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 Sports Interaction 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 (all worldwide) –
- American Football
Here’s how the live betting section looks –
Sports Interaction Casino App Review
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 sports book. 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 really 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 really 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.
The mobile poker app is the only Sports Interaction app you will find on the iTunes app store and you cannot access the sportsbook or casino from it. This is built as a dedicated add on to the poker site and you can access all the same sit and go tournaments that you can on the desktop site.
The software is the same platform as you download on Windows computers and can be downloaded for both iPhone and iPad. Unfortunately, there is no version for Android users for poker currently – your only option would be to play video poker through the casino tab, although we appreciate that is not in the same league as real poker!
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.
Sports Interaction help to grow their brand through official sponsorship of some Canadian Sports teams.
Their current sponsorship includes –
- The Toronto Wolfpack
- The Tiger-Cats
- Toronto Rock Lacrosse team
