Pinnacle Mobile AppPINNACLE MOBILE APP REVIEW

Pinnacle's sportsbook app is not currently available for download, but the operator does have a fully functioning website that includes a mobile option. The mobile-specific site presents itself much like an app and operates smoothly.

Pinnacle boasts a well-developed site that allows users to easily scan the betting board in search of their next wager. Its lengthy list of available sports stretches from the very top of the page down nearly to the bottom, making it easy to read.

Lastly, live bets are readily available on the home page, front and center. In conjunction with the ability to easily place a wager, the user's betslip is designated to the right-hand side and remains visible even when scrolling.

Pinnacle MarketsAVAILABLE LEAGUES & MARKETS

LEAGUES

Pinnacle covers all of the major sports, and various leagues within those major sports, as is expected from an operator who has been in business for two decades. Additionally, its product offers sports betting on a number of different international sports that are less common among sportsbooks.

To name just a few out of the many other leagues Pinnacle offers, the operator has darts, chess, curling, and cycling.

It also offers wagers for entertainment and politics, but the legality of those offerings depends on the market in which the sportsbook is operating.

For example, private operators are allowed to offer betting in many US states, but betting on politics is illegal; therefore, the likes of DraftKings and FanDuel cannot legally offer political betting.

Canada's legal market will continue to develop and grow, so keep an eye out for similar betting nuances, and we will too.

MARKETS

As is commonplace among online operators, Pinnacle offers the standard moneyline, spread, and totals markets for all major sports. Furthermore, it allows bettors to wager on an extensive list of player and game props.

While it does offer futures markets for some leagues, it's not completely consistent when it comes to listing futures markets for all leagues.

In non-major sports, the prop market is a bit scarce. They are not completely bare, but the prop markets for sports such as tennis, boxing, and MMA are not quite as robust as those of the industry-leading sportsbooks.

Pinnacle Payment OptionsCUSTOMER SERVICE & PAYMENT OPTIONS

CUSTOMER SERVICE

Pinnacle's customer service lives up to industry expectations for the most part. It offers a practically all-encompassing list of topics on its help page for confused or curious players.

The site also provides more than a handful of FAQs for bettors to sift through before going through the trouble of contacting the operator about an issue. If the FAQs and help topics are not enough, there is an option for users to contact Pinnacle directly.

Although there is not a live chat service, there is a contact form which users can fill out in detail to explain their problem. On its customer service page, Pinnacle claims to be available for assistance 24/7 through email.

Pinnacle offers a number of different deposit and withdrawal methods to its users, including the following:

  • Visa / MasterCard
  • Bitcoin
  • eCheque
  • Litecoin
  • Interac e-Transfer
  • iDebit
  • Neosurf

There are a handful of other methods as well, but the ones listed above are the most common. Users can visit Pinnacle's payment options page to view the full list.
