Sports betting has moved main stream in Canada over the past several years. When you turn on TSN or Sportsnet the discussions often revolve around betting lines or spreads for various games. Any negative stigma attached to sports betting has disappeared, and it’s now the norm for Saskatchewan residents to place bets online.
If you found this page you are probably ready to place a bet. So let’s get right to it. Follow the three steps below to place your bet at one of our top rated betting sites for Saskatchewan residents. I will touch more on Saskatchewan specific sports betting questions below the getting started guide.

Offline Sports Betting
Saskatchewan does have an offline sports betting option with Sport Select, but it is not a product we recommend.
Sport Select is the umbrella name for the offline sports betting lottery games available from Sask Lotteries. The most popular betting lottery offered through Sport Select is Proline.
Sport Select allows Saskatchewan residents to bet on sports at any Sask Lottery distributor (gas stations, convenience stores, etc.), but there are some major issues with the Sport Select games, which I believe to be predatory in nature.
The main problem with Sport Select games are the odds. The odds offered through Sport Select are far worse than the industry standard odds you would find at any of the betting sites recommended above. For example, for a 50/50 outcome (an over/under bet for example) the typical odds you would see a betting site would be 1.91 for both sides of the bet. With Sport Select the odds for a 50/50 outcome are set at 1.70. These odds are ridiculously bad and are impossible to beat long term.
Another issue with Proline is that you must wager on at least 3 outcomes on a ticket. This results in the awful odds being extrapolated over several outcomes, resulting in parlay tickets which often payout half as much as if you bet the same parlay at one of our recommended betting sites.
I strongly suggest not betting through Sport Select or Proline in Saskatchewan. The odds are horrible and the games could be considered predatory. Take your action online and be treated fairly by betting sites that are competing for your business.
Saskatchewan Casinos Sports Betting
Sports betting is not available at Saskatchewan casinos.
The casinos in Saskatchewan offer table games, slots, poker, and more, but they are not allowed to take sports bets at this time.
Saskatchewan Horse Racing
Marquis Downs was a horse racing track in Saskatoon that opened in 1969. Unfortunately, the track closed in 2021 after having to cancel the 2020 and 2021 seasons due to the covid-19 pandemic. The site is potentially being repurposed as a soccer stadium to host a Canadian Premier League expansion team.
Saskatchewan Sports Betting FAQ
Below I will answer a few questions I often receive from Saskatchewan residents.
Can I Bet With Visa or MasterCard?
Yes, you can deposit via credit card at any of the recommended betting sites listed above.
Can I Bet With Interac?
Yes, all of our recommended betting sites allow both deposits and withdrawals via Interac.
I personally use Interac for getting money into and out of my betting accounts. It’s quick, easy, and there are no associated fees (cash advance fees sometimes apply to credit card deposits). Interac is the best deposit/withdrawal options for Canadians, in my opinion.
