Credit Cards are accepted by every sportsbook in my list. You should be aware that
all Canadian card companies approach these direct transactions with sportsbook sites
and gaming services as cash advances, not as purchases. This means that interest
will mount on the transaction. While this might be good for when you first sign
up as you no doubt have a credit card readily available, I recommend that you sign
up with one of the e-
Interac Email Money Transfers are becoming the preferred payment methods for Canadians
toward sports betting sites. You can access Interac transfers from your online banking
service from any major Canadian bank or even credit unions. The Interac-
Bank Transfers are also accepted by every betting site on my list. There is nearly no limit to the amount you can deposit or withdraw when using this method (though each site may have its own withdrawal rules). When you deposit, each service will provide a reference number and bank account details. You will then provide these to your bank so the funds can be attributed to your account. This will likely take 2 to 3 business days.
Entropay is essentially a virtual Visa card which is prepaid -
EcoCard lets you send money securely independent of your bank account and without any sort of credit application. The EcoCard is a physical or virtual card that you can use anywhere MasterCard is accepted. You have total control over what is spent because you can only spend what is loaded onto the card. Load funds from your bank account or another credit card. Sports Interaction accepts EcoCard. This method also helps you to avoid those cash advance interest charges if you use your credit card as the original funding source.
ClickandBuy lets you pay with your credit card or debiting your bank account. Very similar to PayPal, if you use your credit card through ClickandBuy, you will avoid the cash advance interest charges that you would incur by using the your card directly with the betting site. Clickandbuy was established in Germany in 1999 and are an accredited Electronic Money Institution and is now headquartered in London and overseen by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). ClickandBuy is now a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom. You can seamlessly may with your mobile with ClickandBuy and use it with Pinnacle, Sports Interaction and William Hill.
Instadebit essentially works like an online cheque. You don’t fund an Instadebit
account from another funding source as it is NOT an e-
iDebit facilitates inexpensive online banking transfers. Move money to and from your iDebit account with your Canadian bank account up to a limit of $1,000 per transaction. Fees to move money using iDebit are around one or two dollars per transaction. Creating your account is free. iDebit is accepted at Pinnacle, Sports Interaction and William Hill.
Ukash works like a gift card or gift certificate. You simply go to the Ukash website to find one of over 15,000 Ukash partner locations across Canada (Like a post office, gas station or new stand). At these locations, you will be able to buy a Ukash code in denominations of $15, $25, $50, $75, $100, $150, $250. Your actual prices will be higher than these amounts. The difference accounts for the fee that is split between the retailer and Ukash itself. Actual respective fees are $16.95, $28.95, $54.95, $79.95, $105.95, $156.95 and $259.95. You will then be able to redeem your Ukash voucher at Pinnacle, Sports Interaction or William Hill by entering the PIN code and the corresponding amount.
Paysafecard is also a gift-

I describe how they work. You may use credit cards directly with the sportsbook,

Bodog is one of the oldest brands in Canadian sports betting, founded in 1994. They’ve paid out over $50 billion to players, having never missed a payment. They only accept Canadian players so you know they cater Canadian preferences. Read the full review here.
Pinnacle Sports was established in 1998. You may not have heard of them because they don’t advertise. They don’t offer a sign up bonus. Why? This costs money. Pinnacle operates on super thin margins to consistently offer you the highest paying odds. Pinnacle calls this 'A bonus for life.' If consistently high paying odds are important to you, Pinnacle is likely your best option. Read the full review here.
Sports Interaction was founded in 1997. It is the only completely Canadian sportsbook
William Hill pioneered sports betting, established in 1934. They are listed on the London Stock Exchange, with a long track record as a solid & reliable company.
