Sports Betting in Winnipeg – FAQ
Are you still here? Haven’t left to place some bets at one of our recommended betting sites? If so, then perhaps you have some more questions regarding sports betting from Winnipeg. Below I will answer a few of the more common questions I receive from Winnipeg residents.
Can I bet with a local bookie in Winnipeg?
I do not advise betting with a local bookie in Winnipeg. It is not legal to operate an unregulated sportsbook in Canada, and this is what a local bookie would be doing. Therefore, your local bookie would be breaking the law by taking your bets. It’s best to steer clear of this.
I suggest joining one of the trusted betting sites I’ve listed above and using them for your bets. You will receive a sign up bonus, a wider selection of betting options, and fair odds.
Can I bet with credit cards online?
Yes, all three of our recommended betting sites allow you to deposit with Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
Bet365 will allow you to withdraw winnings back to your credit card, while SIA and Betway do require you to cash out winnings via another method (bank wire, check, bitcoin) if you deposit with credit card.
Can I deposit/withdraw using Interac e-Transfer?
Yes, SportsInteraction.com and Betway.com allow both deposits and withdrawals via Interac. This is my preferred transaction method for my sports betting needs. Using Interac for both deposits and withdrawals at SIA and Betway is as easy as sending or receiving an Interac transfer from a friend.
What professional sports teams play in Winnipeg?
Winnipeg is home to a variety of professional teams, but it’s the Winnipeg Jets (NFL) and Blue Bombers (CFL) that are the most followed teams in the city. The Jets returning to Winnipeg in 2011 after relocating to Atlanta for 12 years was a huge win for the city, and the Jets are now perennial contenders having made the Stanley Cup Playoffs the last four seasons.
- Winnipeg Jets (Hockey – NHL)
- Winnipeg Blue Bombers (Football – CFL)
- Valour FC (Soccer – CPL)
- Winnipeg Goldeyes (Baseball – AAPB)
- Manitoba Moose (Hockey – AHL)
You can place bets on any of these Winnipeg teams at any of our top rated betting sites listed further up the page.
