OUR RATING – 9.5/10

BONUS – C$300


21Bets is not an exclusively Canadian brand, in fact they’ve already been operating in several other countries before coming to Canada. The brand itself is owned by Famagousta B.V. who obtained their Kahnawake Gaming Commission license in April of 2023. Which is when they first started officially accepting local sports fans and updated their website to have a dedicated Canadian version.

If you open their website now, you will see that they have everything a local betting operator is expected to have. A decent level of coverage for Canadian sports leagues and tournaments, CAD as the main betting currency and local payment and withdrawal options.


Creating an account at 21 Bets is quick and easy – the registration form consists of just two pages. The first page will ask you for your email address, password and preferred currency. The second page will require some basic personal details like your phone number, name and address.

Once you complete the second page of the registration form – you are good to go, there is nothing else you need to do at this stage. The entire registration process can be completed within 1 minute.

21Bets offer all new players from Canada a classic first deposit welcome bonus. As a newcomer, you can get a 100% bonus added to your player wallet after making your first deposit. The maximum amount you can get from this offer is C$300.

The minimum amount required to activate this offer is C$30 and you will also need to pick the “Welcome Sports Bonus” option on the deposits page before completing your payment. Once you get welcome bonus funds credited to your account, you will need to wager them 5 times with the odds of 1.50 (-200) or higher.

In case you are not a fan of bonuses and don’t like wagering them, you can go with the second welcome offer option – a free bet. In this case you will need to deposit C$35 or more along with selecting the “Welcome Free Bet” option on the payments page. Once you complete your payment a C$30 free bet will be added to your account. This free bet can only be used with football, basketball, ice hockey, tennis and volleyball.


You can get in touch with support mostly via live chat. However, you can also send an email in case you feel that is more appropriate for the issue you need assistance with.

When you open up the live chat window, you will start a chat with a bot, so there is no straightforward way to immediately talk with a support agent. You will then be guided through a chain of questions, which will eventually either lead you to an FAQ page or will start a chat with a support representative.


When you open the sports betting section of 21Bets, you will see over 20 different spots listed there. While the primary focus is understandably on popular sports like basketball, football, and hockey, the platform also caters to enthusiasts of niche disciplines.

In order to give you a better understanding of what you can expect, let’s take a look at an NBA game and its betting market variety.

We are going to use an upcoming match between the Detroit Pistons and LA Clippers. The total number of available bet types in the pre-game phase is over 100, which is usually the case for more popular games in leagues in general. This includes a variety of player bets, head-to-head (H2H) matchups, and special betting markets to choose from.

player specials


The live betting section appears to have a slightly different interface compared to the pre-game section that we have just covered above. The number of available sports is way less than in the previous section as well. However, if your focus is primarily on popular sports and major tournaments, you should be easily able to find what you need.

While the current selection caters to mainstream preferences, there’s room for improvement, so we hope that 21Bets will add some more sports to their live betting section going forward.

A notable feature that we could miss is the “Betbuilder” functionality. If you are an experience sports bettor, you will know that selection from the same game cannot be combined in an accumulator bet under normal circumstances.

Betbuilder is designed to make that possible. When this feature is available, you should see a “Bet Builder” sign available among betting market filters. If you press that sign, it will load a new interface with a new set of bet types, which you can then combine into one accumulator bet.

Please note that the BetBuilder feature is available only for a specific set of games, so it is expected that some games will not have it.

Like we already mentioned in the very beginning, 21Bets operate in many different countries, so they have region-specific payment methods available in all of them. This also includes Canada, so when you open the payments page, you will see all the familiar payment gateways (like Interac) listed there.

It’s also important to mention that 21Bets is crypto-friendly, so you can top up your player account and withdraw your winnings using cryptocurrency.

The minimum amount you can deposit using Interac or crypto payments is C$10.

The minimum amount you can withdraw is C$100.

The other welcome offer available for you when you make your first payment is a free bet. Like with the bonus, you need to select the “free bet” option on the payments page before actually making your first deposit.

The cool thing about promotions at 21Bets is that there is a decent number of offers for existing players. Therefore, even if you had already used the welcome bonus, you will still have other offers to look forward to.

Currently, 21Bets lacks its own mobile application, requiring mobile users to access the platform through their mobile website. We found their mobile website to be reasonably well optimized, so the fact that there is no app doesn’t seem like a significant issue.

We did several test runs of their website using four different smartphones: an iPhone X, an iPhone 15, Samsung Galaxy S10 and Google Pixel 7. We intentionally used two somewhat outdated devices, as we understand that not everyone has access to all the latest models.


The mobile website performs efficiently across all the devices we tested. The only thing worth mentioning is that the sportsbook section appears to live in an embedded widget, separate from the main website. Therefore, your initial visit may require slightly more time to open the sports betting section than anticipated.

On your first visit, most static page elements such as icons and buttons will be cached, allowing your phone to load them from memory as you navigate between pages.

Once everything is loaded, the interface seems to work quite well. There are almost no loading screens when you move between different sports, tournaments and games. Managing multiple tabs with various games simultaneously is not an issue, you can also place separate bets in each individual tab.

Now, let’s take a look at how the website works from a user’s perspective, how to navigate and what are the different sections of the website used for.

First, let’s take a look at the header, which is the main navigation panel with links to all sections of the website. The button located on the left side of the header bar will open a slider menu that has links to all sections of 21Bet. The button on the right side (where you can see your current balance) of the header bar will open a drop-down menu with links to account management pages like the deposits and withdrawals pages.

21bets mobile header

Next, the sports navigation bar is located right underneath the header. Please keep in mind that it appears only on the actual sportsbook pages, so you will not see it on the homepage. This is a horizontal scroller bar with a list of all available sports.

21bets sports navigation

Finally, let’s see what happens when you try placing a bet. The betslip is hidden by default, you can bring it up by pressing the “Betslip” button located in the bottom right corner of the screen. You will see all your selected outcomes listed there, so you can either place individual bets, accumulators or combine your selections into system bets. An additional tab available in your betslip is the “My Bets” tab, which gives a brief overview of your active and recently settled bets.

21bets betslip


A functional and user-friendly interface design is usually a good sign when it comes to betting sites, as this will enable you to find exactly what you need in just several steps, markets and selections should be clearly visible and understandable while the betslip part should show all details relevant to your bet and additional options and/or features if applicable. Below are some examples of how 21Bets’s online sports betting section looks like.

Let’s start by dividing the website into four distinct sections which we can then review one by one in more detail.

  • Header section – this is the main navigation hub that has links to all sections of the website. The right side of the header bar will have your current balance display next to the “Deposit” button. Clicking on your balance icon will open a drop-down menu where you can find links to account management and payment pages.
  • Left-side menus – the left side of the screen features two menus. The one shown on the top is a list of popular leagues that are available for betting at the moment. If you start scrolling down, you will see a second, sports selection menu where all available sports are listed. Each sports discipline on that list will have a number of currently available games displayed next to it.
  • Betting interface – The betting interface is where all the actions happen and it sits right in the center of the screen. When you pick a sport from the sport menu on the left, all available games will be listed here. Clicking on a game will open up all available bet types along with a summary of the game. Live games will also have a live scoreboard available.
  • Betslip section – your betslip will be displayed on the right side of the screen. All selections you pick will be added to the betslip section where you can place individual bets or combine them into accumulators and system bets. Your betslip will also have a “My Bets” tab where you will see an overview of your active and settled bets.
