How To Sign Up For A PointsBet Canada Account
In order to get the ball rolling and finish the process smoothly, you’ll want to have some crucial information and documentation on hand. That way, you can get through the identity verification step. Essentially you’ll need some form of government-issued ID and an official document with your address (like a utility bill).
Once your free account has been set up, you can go about funding the account via one of the following methods:
- Debit Card
- Credit Card
- Bank Account
Before you deposit, though, be sure to check around the PointsBet Canada landing page to find whatever welcome rewards they’re offering. You can use these to optimize your experience with PointsBet.
Betting At PB
If you’re new to sports betting, you’ll want to familiarize yourself with the following betting options:
Before beginning your journey at PointsBet, however, it’s also crucial that you build an understand of their proprietary Points Betting. Unlike most operators, which usually offer a pretty similar menu of bets, PointsBet’s namesake gives it a unique angle in the market.
Essentially, Points Betting gives you the opportunity to win or lose many times your bet depending on the magnitude of the final result. For example, a Points Bet on a 10-point NFL underdog that wins by 3 could pay out 13-times the original wager — the result came in 13 points off of the spread.
Toronto Teams To Attract Extra Interest
New bettors in Ontario may have a particular interest in wagering on local franchises in Toronto. These teams are at least vying on the fringes of championship contention if not among the favorites in their respective sports, as it’s a great time to be a sports fan in Canada’s largest city.
When it comes to Canadian sports, nothing pumps up the national excitement level quite like hockey. The Toronto Maple Leafs have put together a strong season and belong firmly in contention. As of this writing, they rank tied for second in the Eastern Conference and Stanley Cup odds give them a real shot to bring home the franchise’s first title since the 1960s.
The Maple Leafs aren’t the only reason to think championship in Toronto, though. In baseball, the MLB’s Blue Jays sport World Series odds second only to the powerhouse Dodgers at most sportsbooks. The team has several MVP contenders led by Vlad Guerrero Jr. and a retooled pitching staff that features both depth and talent. The season begins April 7 and expectations have rarely if ever been higher.
Not many had high hopes for the Raptors entering the season as win total markets pegged them below .500. Another Nick Nurse masterpiece has them firmly in Eastern Conference contention vying for a middle seed despite starting the season with a losing record for the first couple of months. Less of a title contender than the other two teams, the Raps may nonetheless surprise some people in the postseason, and Canada will stand firmly behind them.
