Canadian Focus

Our Bet99 review seeks to answer just that! We’ll look at:

Let’s dive in!

  • iGO License

  • Partnerships with Players

  • Self Exclusion Available

  • Relatively New

Yes, Bet99 is very legit! It has recently acquired an iGaming Ontario license, which makes it fully legal in the province.

It also has a certification from GLI, which similar to other third party companies like eCogra, test and certify games as fair play.

There are other signs of Bet99’s legitimacy. For example, Bet99 partners up with:

  • UFC’s legend George St-Pierre
  • Montreal Alouettes (CFL Football Team)
  • Club De Foot Montreal (MLS Soccer Team)

These partnerships with renowned teams and players show that Bet99 is a serious contender in the sports betting scene.

Most recently, Bet99 has partnered up with the NHL Canada itself, which is an additional proof of the brand’s trustworthiness.

Bet99’s Responsible Gambling

This is great to see!

Bet99 also has responsible gambling mechanisms in place, such as self exclusion and the ability to set daily, weekly, and monthly deposits.

Bet99 Responsible Gambling

This can be done at post-login stage in the payment section. It’s good to see the brand taking this seriously and to have an easily accessible way to adjust these limits without speaking to customer support or sending emails.

Bet99 x IBIA Partnership

What’s more, Bet99 has recently joined the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA). This means that Bet99 is now part of the network that actively combats unfair play, manipulation, and corruption in the world of sports betting.

Recently, Bet99 also voiced its support to the AGCO, which banned UFC betting in Ontario due to fears some of the matches may have been tampered with.

bet99 is safe

Those playing at Bet99 can be sure the sportsbook is safe and actively ensuring there’s nothing but fair play on its platform.

The downside to Bet99 is that it is still a relatively new sportsbook and therefore has not built a reputation like other industry-leading sportsbooks with decades of experience.

But no worries, we’ll be monitoring the sportsbook closely and will make sure this review is updated with the latest news.

  • Dark and Light Mode

  • Extensive Game Filters

Rest assured that you will have no problem navigating this betting site.

Bet99 Homepage
Bet99‘s Homepage

Apart from the usual sports, casino and live categories at the top, we were pleased to see player props as a separate section.

We also liked the fact that the help tab is easily accessible because many sportsbooks opt to bury it in the account section.

Bet99 Navigation menu
Good Navigation at Bet99

The menu on the left is split into two sections. The first section lists some of the top leagues, which helps you navigate to the hottest events.

The second section lists all sports that you can bet on. Each sport type opens up to more sub-menus that help narrow down your search.

This betting site’s casino section also deserves a special mention!

User-Friendly Casino Section!

Bet99 is one of the few Canadian gambling sites to use extensive filters for its games.

Bet99 Slot Filter

The lack of filters is something we frequently encounter and complain about, but Bet99 performs well by including filters like volatility, providers, and themes. This means super easy game navigation!

Lastly, do you want to switch between light and dark mode? At Bet99, you can by clicking a button at the top right corner of the homepage!

While we’ll always pay more attention to other aspects like competitive odds, it’s still a cool feature that improves user experience and earns the site a few more brownie points.

How to Sign Up at Bet99

Bet99’s sign up and login process is standard:

If you’re experiencing any issues with the Xpoint app, try connecting the device you’re betting on to Wi-Fi, or re-installing the plugin. For more information, we have a separate page on Ontario locators issues and how to fix them.

2.The second registration page will ask you to input the usual personal details like address and date of birth.

3. Once you fill in all details and confirm them, you will receive a verification email. Click the link you get to confirm your registration.

4. That’s it! You can log in to Bet99.com. Just remember that you will need to verify your identity before making any withdrawals.

    • Many Prop Bets

    • Good eSports Category

    • Virtual eSports Available

    • Live Streaming

    Bet99 has plenty to offer Canadian sports bettors, averaging 75,000 pre-match events per month and another 58,000 live events. There are around 30 sports on offer, and these include:

    • Tennis
    • Basketball
    • Hockey
    • Football
    • Soccer

    There are also more niche sports like lacrosse, floorball, and biathlon, and interesting categories like ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, which makes Bet99 more varied than other sportsbooks that stick to the most popular sports.  

    Bet99 also has a comprehensive eSports category compared to most betting sites. Popular sportsbooks like Sports Interaction and Spin Sports focus on DOTA and CS:GO, but Bet99 offers the likes of:

    • FIFA
    • CS:GO
    • DOTA
    • Rocket League
    • COD
    • LOL
    • KoG
    • And more!

    Bet Types and Available Markets

    There are a wide variety of markets to bet on. For ice hockey alone, players can bet on:

    • Over/Under
    • Highest Scoring Period
    • First Team to Score
    • Money Line
    • Spread
    • And a lot more!

    However, Bet99 has a particularly extensive section for prop bets.

    Good Prop Bets Selection!

    Another feature that gives Bet99 an edge is a separate tab for Player props, where you’ll find a broad range of prop bets.

    Player props are available for major sports such as NFL and soccer.

    Bet99 NFL Prop Bets

    Although most sportsbooks offer some prop betting options, we have rarely seen such an extensive range, so Bet99 earns some bonus points for this.

    Bet99 also offers a good range of in-play betting. Since recently, it also has a live streaming option, which we were very happy to see!

    NFL live streaming!

    What’s more, Bet99 has an exclusive deal with the NFL, allowing the sportsbook to live stream these events!

    This is something that’s not available at many sportsbooks, and which Canadian bettors will absolutely love.

    Customer support confirmed that cash out is available for some bets, but there is no preview if a bet will have that option or not.

    Super Bowl at Bet99

    Bet99 is famous for its prop bets, so we were expecting to see a variety of bets around the upcoming Super Bowl 2023.

    We were not disappointed!

    Bet99 Super Bowl 2023 betting markets

    While the total amount of betting markets is a lot lower than that of bet365, for example (46 vs 260), Bet99’s unique features such as bet builder, combo, and even scoring props make the sportsbook worth visiting for a quick Super Bowl bet.

    Odds at Bet99

    We took some time to compare Bet99’s odds with other leading Canadian sportsbooks. Here’s an example for CFL:

    Montreal AlouettesOttawa Redblacks
    Sports Interaction1.592.45
    Bet991.572.42
    CFL – Montreal Alouettes vs Ottawa Redblacks

    In this case, Bet99 isn’t the best option, but still offers competitive odds. In another example from the NBA:

    Philadelphia 76ersBoston Celtics
    Bet992.351.64
    Betway2.501.65
    Sports Interaction2.471.56
    NBA – Philadelphia 76ers vs Boston Celtics

    In this example, Bet99 is the second best option for the favourite, while Betway is clearly the best option for the underdog.

    These two examples display the wider pattern we’ve seen for Bet99, which is that it offers competitive odds, and it’s usually a better option for favourite bets.

    • 1600 Games

    • Various Jackpot Games

    • Live Casino

    If you fancy giving the reels a spin, or sit at a live dealer table, we have good news for you.

    Casino Alert!

    Bet99 casino has a solid offering of over 1600 games and slots from renowned providers like Microgaming, Playson, Quickspin, Relax Gaming and Pragmatic.

    Of particular note are the 125 jackpot games on offer, such as:

    • Wheel of Wishes
    • Mega Moolah Goddess
    • Juicy Joker Mega Moolah
    Bet99 selection of jackpot games
    Plenty of Jackpot Games to Choose From!

    There’s also the option for customers to save their ‘favourite games’, which is a nifty feature if you want to revisit the casino and play the same game.

    Live Casino

    Live casino games from Bet99 are around 65 in number, and include the most popular types of live games:

    • Blackjack
    • Poker
    • Roulette
    • Baccarat

    These live dealer games are from leading gaming providers Ezugi, Pragmatic Play and 7Mojos. We thought it’s a pity that Evolution games aren’t offered, but those three providers together provide a nice selection.

    • Downloadable App

    • Can Be a Bit Slow

    We had a great experience navigating Bet99 on mobile. One cool addition is the ability to switch between dark and light mode.

    It won’t lead to more money in our pockets, but these options definitely make for a more pleasant betting experience.  

    There’s also a downloadable Bet99 app for Android and iOS, featuring a casino section as well.

    Although the mobile-optimized site performs well, we do feel that the app can give a better experience to some bettors. For instance, the app is ideal if you want to do a lot of in-play betting that requires quick access.

    One slight downside is that the app can be a bit slow at times, so it’s a good thing that the mobile website is well-optimized.

    • Range of Payment Options

    • Novel payment methods

    • Withdrawal Fees

    Payment methods available include some of the most familiar names to Canadians:

    • Interac
    • Credit Cards
    • Instadebit
    • iDebit
    • Express connect
    • Triple000
    • MuchBetter
    • PayPal

    This list leaves little to be desired as it covers virtually all the payment methods we expect from a Canadian betting site.

    How Long Do Bet99 Withdrawals Take?

    According to Bet99’s withdrawal policy, the sportsbook allows itself 3 business days to process withdrawals and verify documents.

    Top Tip!

    Make sure that you have one of the following documents ready for verification to speed up the process:

    – Government-issued passport
    – National ID card
    – Driver’s License

    During this 72-hour window, you can cancel your withdrawal at any time.

    Apart from the three days for withdrawal processing, there is a transfer period that usually takes within 3-5 working days after approval. This was also verified by customer support via live chat.

    So, the overall withdrawal time is slightly longer than the average 24-48 hr window. However, our withdrawal experience indicates that Bet99 is actually faster than its stated time window in some cases.

    How Long Does Bet99 Take to Deposit?

    Bet99 deposits are usually immediate, unless there’s an issue.

    Is There a Minimum and Maximum Deposit?

    Yes, minimum deposit is a standard $20 for all payment methods, which is comparable to most other sportsbooks.

    The maximum deposit varies depending on the payment method:

    Payment MethodMaximum Deposit
    Interac$2,500
    MuchBetter$10,000
    Instadebit$5,000
    iDebit$5,000
    Maximum deposits at Bet99
    Top Tip!

    This indicates that MuchBetter is the best option for players looking to deposit a large sum of money.

    Are There any Payout Limits?

    Yes, these are the current payout limits at Bet99:

    Max. Withdrawal Amounts

    • $20,000 per week
    • $50,000 per month
    • $350,000 per year

    Max. Number of Withdrawals

    • 3 per day
    • 7 per week
    • 30 per month

    Bet99 imposes restrictions that are stricter than some other sportsbooks.

    We feel that the limitations are good enough to cater for the vast majority of bettors and we don’t consider it a big downside.

    Do I Have to Pay a Fee on my Withdrawals?

    Bet99 allows up to 3 monthly withdrawals free of charge, but any more above that is charged $5. Moreover, bank wires are charged $40 per request, which makes them the less desirable payment option from the selection.

    This is excluding any other fees that might be charged from the payment providers themselves.

    • Both English and French Support

    • Comprehensive Help Section

    Bet99’s customer support is available 24/7 and shows its focus on Canadian players by offering support in both English and French. Customer support is available via:

    • Live Chat
    • Email
    Tip!

    Before chatting to a support agent, check out the handy ‘Help’ tab that’s easily accessible from the top navigation bar. This tab lists common FAQs.

    Bet99 Help Tab

    We tested the live chat in English in the early hours of the morning (1.30 am) and the response was immediate. We asked about the payment methods available at Bet99 and he confirmed that no credit cards are available and that e-transfer methods are.

    We would have preferred a better breakdown of what exactly these payment methods are. However, the agent gained some points by explaining that there is a transfer period for withdrawals, and it might take 3-5 days to transfer money after approval.

    We also checked some player threads to see if there are any persistent complaints regarding customer support.

    We did come across a couple of complaints that customer support is slow. Since these were only a few complaints, and we did not encounter the same experience, we will not deduct any points for Bet99.

    Our Verdict

    Our Verdict!

    After thoroughly reviewing Bet99, we decided to award Bet99 the coveted 5-star rating.

    Bet99 scored highly in a lot of areas. The sportsbook offers competitive odds and is betting heaven for prop bettors.

    It also has a downloadable app which is ideal for in-play betting, and 24/7 customer support in both English and French.

    Its solid casino offering means that Bet99 can be a go-to site for all your gambling needs.

    There were a couple of aspects we’d like the betting site to improve on in the future. For instance, slightly better odds for underdogs would make Bet99 more competitive.

    Despite these few minor drawbacks, we think that Bet99 is a great sportsbook to try out, and we’re excited to see how it develops!
