If you have been around for a while then you may remember an online bookmaker named ‘Bet On Brazil’. That bookie was rebranded into SportNation back in 2017 and the new brand offers a much-improved website, bigger and better betting offers, great customer service and an overall improved service.
SportNation.com is operated by Esport Entertainment Ltd which is a company based in Malta. The bookie shouldn’t be confused with SportNation.bet which is a sister site aimed at UK customers and operated by Argyll Entertainment AG.
100% Bonus up to $200
Is SportNation Legal In Canada?
SportNation accepts customers from around the world, including from Canada. The bookie is licenced and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority for Canadian residents and offers some great promotions along with excellent coverage of sports.

Fill in the registration form and your account should be set up within a couple of minutes. If you wish, you can also create an account using a mobile phone or tablet by either visiting the website via a browser or by downloading the SportNation app.
SportNation Sign Up Offer
SportNation offers one of the biggest sign up offers to Canadian customers who can claim a bonus of up to $200 on their first deposit. It’s an easy offer to claim but there are wagering requirements to take note of.
To claim the new customer offer, visit SportNation and register a new account.
Next, head to the ‘Bonus’ section of your account and claim the sign up bonus.
After having done that, make a deposit and the bonus will automatically be credited to your account.
The offer is a 100% deposit bonus up to $200 which means that you’ll receive your deposit amount as a bonus up to a maximum of $200.
Deposit $10 and receive a $10 bonus
Deposit $50 and receive a $50 bonus
Deposit $200 and receive a $200 bonus
Once you have received your bonus, you must wager the bonus amount 6 times on sports bets with odds of 1.6 (-167) within 30 days of receiving it. Upon meeting the wagering requirements, any remaining bonus funds will be transferred to your cash balance.
SportNation Sports, Odds & Markets
SportNation has an excellent range of sports to bet on including Basketball, Ice Hockey, Baseball, Football, Horse Racing, Soccer and several others. In fact, there are over 30 sports to choose from, giving customers a huge choice.
Unlike other bookies, SportNation doesn’t seem to focus on any one sport more than another with there being promotions available for several different sports such as Soccer, Baseball and Basketball.
We found the odds available at SportNation to be very competitive when we compared them to other popular Canadian bookies. This was the case for a variety of sports and markets which gives us confidence that users are getting good value with their bets.
The number of betting markets available for the various sports is also impressive. This is especially true for Soccer and Baseball for which there are usually 150+ betting options for games in the top league and competitions.
Be sure to keep an eye out for price boosts at SportNation as they are generally available for all popular events. You’ll see them at the top of the sports betting page for each event.
Create Your Bet
‘Create Your Bet’ is a betting feature that is available on the majority of soccer matches. It allows customers to build a customer accumulator with markets from the same soccer match.
For example, you can combine markets such as the match winner, first scorer, correct score, over/under goals, number of corners and several others into one bet.
To create a bet, navigate to the betting page for the soccer match you want to bet on and activate the Create A Bet feature using the toggle switch that is at the top of the list of markets. You’ll then be able to add selections and place your bet.
A great reason to use SportNation for your daily bets is their Bet Club from which you can receive a $25 free bet each week.
To participate, you must opt-in to the promotion via the promotions page and then place six bets on sports between Monday and Sunday.
There are two levels to this promotion.
1. Place 6 x $5 bets throughout the week and receive a $5 free bet
2. Place 6 x $25 bets throughout the week and receive a $25 free bet
It’s a great offer if you place bets regularly and one that could see you receive up to $1,300 in free bets throughout the year!
Currently, SportNation only provides live streams of horse and greyhound racing which is a feature that was added to the site just a couple of years ago in 2019. However, despite only offering streams of these sports, there are over 40,000 races available each year to watch.
Horse races taking place in the UK, Europe, US and UAE are all available to stream as well as greyhound races from dozens of the UK & Ireland’s top tracks.
What is great about the streams is that they’re completely free to access. You can watch live horse and greyhound races at any time of the day so long as you’re logged into your account.
Streams are available on both desktop and mobile, including through the Sport Nation app, and are of excellent quality.
When SportNation was rebranded in 2017, the whole brand had a makeover. That included a brand new website and app which were a huge improvement on the old ones.
The SportNation app is excellent and is extremely easy to use. Navigation between the different areas of the app is easy using the main menu and the scrollable sports icons and the colours, although quite in your face, make the app rather appealing.
Using the app, you’ll have quick access to your account to make deposits & withdrawals as well as all other areas of the site such as promotions, enhanced odds, in-play betting, live streaming and more.
The app is available for both iOS and Android devices and can be downloaded from the Apple & Google Play stores for free.
The app is a great way to hear about the latest betting offers via push notifications. However, an even better way is via WhatsApp which is a feature that we’ve only seen available at SportNation.
Join the WhatsApp channel and you can receive exclusive offers that aren’t available anywhere else. It’s a great feature from the bookie and one that has proved to be very popular with customers.
The Sport Nation Casino is host to several hundred games with customers being able to use their sports balance to wager.
The selection of slots is excellent with a good mix of old and classic titles as well as slots from different game providers such as NetEnt, Playtech and Blueprint. You’ll also find table games such as roulette, blackjack, baccarat, texas holdem and punto banco available along with around a dozen or so virtual sports which have simulated matches and races running 24/7.
If live casino games appeal to you more, SportNation features games such as Dream Catcher, Three Card Poker, Side Bet City, Monopoly Live, Live Blackjack & Roulette, Mega Ball, Casino Hold’em and many others.
It’s a good idea to visit the promotions page regularly as SportNation run a number of generous casino offers throughout each week from which you can claim bonuses, free spins and cashback.
Canadian customers at SportNation have a range of options to choose from when it comes to depositing and withdrawing from their account. As well as credit & debit cards, payment options such as Astropay, Paysafecard and ecoPayz are also available.
You can typically expect withdrawal times to bank accounts to be around 2-5 days which is pretty standard with most bookies. Withdrawals to e-wallets are much quicker with transaction times usually being just a few hours or a day max.
Both email support and support via live chat are available to customers at SportNation between 12:00 and 10pm.
To get in touch with the support team via email, you can use the following address:
Live chat can be launched via the button in the footer of the website or app. The response time is generally very quick which usually makes it the preferred choice of contact method with customers.
