Canadian Sportsbook Deposit Options

Major Credit Cards (Visa/Mastercard)

While Visa and Mastercard are the most popular deposit method in the online gaming industry, unfortunately not every Canadian bank will allow gaming transactions via their credit cards. Visa/Mastercard are generally the quickest way to deposit into your account.

Skrill/Moneybookers

Skrill/Moneybookers has been a popular method for European sportsbooks for many years. While unavailable in the United States, it is open to Canadians and is definitely one of the easiest and most secure ways to handle your financial transactions for sports betting on the web. Similar to Paypal, Moneybookers works as an eWallet, where you fund your account and then are able to pay for or receive funds online.

Net Teller

NETeller has been in operation for over a decade facilitating financial transactions – both deposits and payouts – with low fees and a free account registration. NETeller is available to Canadians and funds can be sent via credit card, Maestro-pay or bank transfer. There are two basic memberships at NETeller – Express and Extended and while the latter offers high limits and other perks, for most NETeller Express works just fine with online betting sites in Canada.

Email Money Transfer

Email money transfers are another common payment form by many Canadians as time moves forward. Although this method is not instant, your account can be funded fairly quick and easily without any use of credit card or eWallet and without any fees associated as well.

Instadebit

If you have a bank account then chances are you have a debit card. Chances are too that you use that debit card all the time – for buying groceries, beer, gas, etc… Using a card that is tied to your bank account is one of the most convenient ways to handle transactions and is gaining increasing traction for online sports betting.

Echeck

Depositing funds by personal e-check is the easiest way to credit your betting account online if you hold a personal checking account at a bank. It generally costs nothing to you and it’s simple and safe. You can transfer money to your sportsbook account directly from your bank account. All you have to do is fill out a quick, secure form, and you are ready to start making wagers.
