BETTILT SPORTSBOOK REVIEW
Bettilt is a sportsbook brand that recently launched their Canadian website, therefore we thought it would be a good idea to review them. It’s worth noting that Bettilt currently does not hold a license from any Canadian regulator, so they operate under an Antillephone N.V. (no. 8048/JAZ2014-034) license. While the absence of a local license may raise concerns for some, this is not a big deal as long as you are aware of all the details.
When accessing Bettilt’s website from Canada, you will be automatically redirected to the CA version. Their Canadian website supports CAD as the main account currency and gives you the option to use local payment methods as well as cryptocurrencies.
Obviously, there is more to a sportsbook than their payment methods and operating licenses. Let’s delve deeper into what Bettilt has to offer and determine if they are worth your time.
The registration process is the first thing you, as a newcomer, will come across. The good news is that it’s quick and easy, with just a single step to complete.
You will need to fill out and submit a registration form. This form will ask you to come up with a username and a password. You will also need to enter your email address and phone number. Once you complete and submit the form – your account is all set and you are good to go. At this stage you will not be asked to verify any contact information.
The entire registration process takes just one minute to complete.
Withdrawing your winnings in the future will require adding your profile information, so we recommend adding everything at this stage to save you some time in the future.
As a Canadian player, you will be glad to know that Bettilt offers a welcome offer that is specifically tailored for you. When you make your first deposit, you can claim a 100% bonus up to C$500, along with a C$5 free bet added to your player account as an extra perk.
Your bonus funds must be wagered 15 times before they can be converted into real money balance and the minimum required odds are 1.80(-125) for any single selection. Unlike other betting websites, Bettilt allows you to wager your welcome bonus with single bets, rather than being restricted to accumulators (multi bets).
The free bet which you will get in addition to the base bonus has to be used with the odds of 1.50 (-200) or higher. It is also worth mentioning that it doesn’t apply to all sports and leagues. You can use your free bet only with the following e-sports disciplines: FIFA, NBA 2K, eTennis, eFighting and Rocket League.
The welcome bonus should be instantly added to your balance, while the free bet might appear within 24 hours after you make your first deposit.
The primary channel to get in touch with support is the live chat window which can be accessed from any section of the website. Upon opening the support chat window you will get access to a chatbot quipped with a set of frequently asked questions. These should help you with most things you might need to know as a newcomer.
If you require assistance from a support representative for more complex questions, you can request a live support chat.
We tested Bettilt’s live support service to give you a good understanding of what you can expect there. The waiting time was around three minutes, so we didn’t have to wait for long until we got connected to a support agent. We asked some basic questions about their betting rules and bonus wagering conditions which got answered quickly. The answers we were given were well-written and were easy to understand, so the person on the other side clearly knew what they were talking about.
SPORTS BETTING SECTION AND ODDS
Bettilt has an impressive sports betting section with an extensive selection of over 50 different sports disciplines. Having so many sports to choose from, it is safe to say that regardless of that you are looking for – you will find it here.
Let’s take a closer look at a hockey game, this should give you a better understanding of how many betting markets you can expect to see here. As an example, we are going to use an upcoming NHL game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Tampa Bay Lightning.
This game has over 450 different bets you can choose from and this includes a wide array of player props and specific period markets.
The live betting section features the exact same sports as the pre-match section does, so there is no shortage of betting opportunities here. As we did in the previous section, let’s look at a live hockey game to see what betting markets are available.
Firstly, it’s worth mentioning that you can bet on every goal, meaning as soon as a goal is scored, the next goal market becomes available. Additionally, markets like “To win the rest of the match” are also available and you can combine it with the current period winner markets.
Handicaps and totals are available throughout the entire game, including period-specific variations of these markets as well as full-time result options.
LIVE VIDEO STREAMS
Games featured on the live betting section are accompanied by live video streams. These games will be marked with a special icon resembling a “play” button. A large portion of live hockey games will have a video stream available and this even includes popular leagues like NHL and CHL.
When accessing the live betting section on a computer or laptop, the live stream video player will be positioned on the right section of the screen, appearing above your betslip. Additionally, there is a “pop out” button that allows you to detach the video player window and freely move it around the screen.
On a smartphone or a tablet, the live stream video player will appear around the top of the page where you would normally have the score board and live match tracker.
Bettilt stands out among sportsbooks in Canada for its extensive coverage of different e-sports disciplines. While the e-sports betting section is still dominated by games like League of Legends (LoL), DOTA 2 and Counter-Strike: GO, you can also see quite a few unique options not commonly found elsewhere. For instance, you can bet on e-cricket, Call of Duty, e-fighting, and even e-baseball.
This is one of the few places where so much attention is being directed towards e-sports content.
SPORTS COVERED BY BETTILT

OTHER PROMOTIONS AT BETTILT
Apart from the initial welcome offer for new players, there are three main promotions we would like to highlight: a tiered weekly deposit bonus, a risk-free bet and an accumulator bet boost. Now, let’s look at all three bonuses in more detail.
WEEKLY DEPOSIT BONUS
The is a deposit bonus that every active player can claim every week on a Thursday. This bonus applies to the first deposit that you make that day. The size and percentage of this bonus depends on your account’s “VIP” status, which is determined by your weekly and monthly turnover.

Bettilt has placed a significant focus on mobile optimization, with a mobile app available for both Android and Apple devices. However, it’s worth noting that the application is essentially identical to the mobile website. Therefore, we have combined our overview of the app and mobile website into a single section.
We did several test runs of their website using four different smartphones: an iPhone 8, an iPhone 14, 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 user interface and all its elements could always nicely fit in the screen on all devices that we used for testing. Although some UI elements appeared a bit too close together on smaller screens, they still functioned as expected.
The mobile website generally loads quickly, the only time when it might take a bit more time is your very first visit. This is because most interface elements are static and will be re-used on every page, causing your device to cache them during the first visit. Once cached, the website loading time will be significantly reduced.
As already mentioned in one of the earlier sections – Bettilt has an embedded video player where you can watch live streams. This player was supported on all devices we used to test it and it worked quite well, provided that there was a fast enough internet connection. However, we do have some concerns regarding older smartphones, which may not support live streams or could experience significant latency.
Now, Let’s delve into the user interface, navigation menus, and different betting sections that you will be interacting with. The navigation menu has a minimalistic design that differs from the typical horizontal scroller with a list of sports. Instead, this navigation bar only lists different sections of the website.
If you want to see the list of sports, you will actually need to press on the “Sports” section, which will bring up a list of all available sports. What’s great about this list is that each sport has a clear indication of how many games are currently open for betting.
Once you select a sport from the list of available ones, you will be taken to the sport-specific page. This will have a list of all available games, starting with the most popular ones. Additionally, you can open a list of countries and leagues if you’re looking for something specific. It’s worth noting that although the sports list shows the overall number of traded games, the games list doesn’t display the number of open markets for each game. When you are scrolling through the games list, you will not be able to know how many markets are currently open for betting in each game without opening that game in a new page.
Finally, let’s take a quick look at the betslip section. You can access the betslip from the menu located at the bottom of your screen. The green betslip button is conveniently located in the center of this menu. When you choose an outcome you want to bet on, it will be added to your betslip. Here, you can enter your stake and confirm the bet.
BETTILT DESKTOP SITE OVERVIEW
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 Bettilt’s online sports betting section looks like.
The header of the desktop website serves as the main navigation panel that grants you access to the various sections of Bettilt. This also includes account management pages and payment sections.
The website has a traditional layout with a navigation menu on the left-hand side of the screen. You can browse through all available sports and see some of the most popular tournaments that are currently open for betting. Each entry on the list will display the number of games currently being offered.
Once you pick a sport from the navigation menu, you will see all available games listed in the main (center) section of the website. Each game will provide an overview of the most popular markets and their respective odds. However, it is worth mentioning that individual games will not have any clear indication of how many markets are open for betting. Therefore, the only way to find that out is by opening the game in question in a new window.
Finally, if you look at the right side of the screen, you should see the betslip section. Once you pick a selection, it will become visible in your betslip. You can change your stake, remove a previously added selection or change the type of your bet if you have several selections added. If you are watching a game with a live stream available, the video player will appear above your betslip.
