More Casino Reviews

Sportsbook.ag is more than two decades old, and welcomes players from Canada. In addition to the casino, as the name implies, Sportsbook.ag also has a sports betting side. However, the range of games and payment options are rather smaller than at many other sites. For more about that, and other aspects of the site, peruse our review.

Sportsbook.ag Signup Bonus for Canada

Players from Canada (amongst many nations, of course) are welcome at Sportsbook.ag, and although there is an initial deposit bonus the details can only be had by contacting Sportsbook.ag. This is quite peculiar, not only in that it's unusual but also because the purpose of an introductory offer or welcome bonus is to entice prospective players. It doesn't ring a note of resounding confidence that finding this information was more effort than usual (normally welcome bonuses are front and centre of a casino website).

Ongoing Promotions

There are real money bonuses for existing players at Sportsbook.ag Casino, but these are offered on an intermittent basis rather than regularly. It's indicated that reload bonuses (which return a certain percentage of losses over a given time back to a player) may be available, each with a unique cap. Casino bonuses come with a 35x wagering requirement, which is more or less average.

Poker fans may be able to earn bonus money by participating in ring or tournament games, and thus accumulating Player Points. For every 200 Player Points accrued, $1 in bonus money is earnt, and when that reaches $20 the sum is moved to a player's regular balance.

Overall, the bonuses on offer are unclear, with the promotions page itself requiring a log-in. The lack of clarity is disappointing, and what's apparent from the outside is not especially impressive.

Betsoft Games and Software at Sportsbook.ag Casino

There are dozens of games available on a play for fun basis, which can be a good way of learning game mechanics and rules before committing any cash. Slots at Sportsbook.ag are provided by software developer Betsoft, and the games available are conveniently sorted into categories (including a complete alphabetical list). Those keen on big jackpots can find them all, such as the reptilian Dragon Kings, and the fantastic fromage of Chase the Cheese, under their own category.

There are also a couple of Hi-Lo, Sports and Scratchcard/Keno games.

There are half a dozen varieties of blackjack, three video poker games, and a small selection of roulette and poker (plus single baccarat and craps games) under the table games category. Whilst the main bases are all covered, there is a narrow range of games to play with most other online casinos offering a greater set of table games than you can find at Sportsbook.ag.

As the name suggests, Sportsbook.ag isn't only a casino site. There's also a whole other side dedicated to sports betting, with games from North America and Europe well represented with the NBA, NASCAR, Formula 1, the English Premier League and more. If you enjoy betting outside the casino it can be convenient having this extra side of things at the same site.

All in all, there are a reasonable number of slots but other games are not huge in number. The sports betting side of the site looks rather more comprehensive than the casino.

Sportsbook.ag Mobile Casino

The site does indicate that it supports mobile gaming, with iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads supported via the web client for poker.

Licensing and Security

Typically, casinos indicate in which jurisdiction they're licensed and regulated at the bottom of the page, alongside any other relevant information (affiliation with eCOGRA, for example). There's no such information present for Sportsbook.ag, and a quick check online indicates they're licensed in Antigua. The lack of clear information on the site itself is cause for concern, and although any license is better than none it's fair to say Antigua isn't a leading international territory when it comes to online betting.

Deposit and Withdrawal Options For Canadian Players

Players from Canada have a number of funding methods they can use to deposit and withdraw money to and from Sportsbook.ag. Amongst the deposit options is the cryptocurrency bitcoin, with each deposit (up to a maximum of $10,000) coming with a 20% reload bonus. Visa and Mastercard are also accepted.

Withdrawals can be made using bitcoin, wire transfer, or check, but only the first in a calendar year is without a 3% processing fee (which is uncommon for casinos). It's also worth noting that wire transfers, whilst highly secure, may come with additional banking fees.

The banking methods are definitely on the slim side, and it's unusual for there to be no e-wallets available.

Customer Support at Sportsbook.ag Casino

Players with queries can access the customer service team at Sportsbook.ag 24 hours a day, via e-mail.

Our Overall Rating

When looking into Sportsbook.ag for the review, navigation was something of a tricky patch, and finding some basic info (what bonuses are available, and where the site is registered and so on) was something of a chore. This lack of clarity is in contrast to most other online betting sites. The range of payment options is slimmed down to the point of being skeletal, and the selection of games is on the thin side too.
