Sports Betting Options During the Coronavirus Outbreak

Sports Betting Options During the Coronavirus Outbreak

As the sporting world and fans deal with the loss of sports, many are feeling a little lost and looking for something to entertain them. Luckily, online sportsbooks offer more than just sports betting. Online sportsbooks also operate online casinos, with slots, card games and tabletop games. They also offer virtual sports and eSports. These online options will help Canadians stuck at home have some fun and maybe even make some money.

As the sporting world has all but shut down, and casinos are closing across Canada as well due to the Coronavirus, many are left without much to do. Sports betting has declined, with only a few events such as eSports, some international soccer and volleyball continuing to operate. A few futures markets remain open, such as NFL betting odds. Overall, though, sports betting as a whole has taken a massive hit.  

However, betting on sports is not the only option available on online sportsbooks. Most online sportsbooks have an online casino and virtual games, where Canadians can bet and win real money and have some fun at the same time.

Sports Interaction leads Options for Canadians

For example, Sports Interaction offers Canadians dozens of different games in their online casino. Card games, slots, table games and video poker are all available and operate 24-hours per day all year long.

Sports Interaction highlights their most popular games at the top of their casino page. They also provide links to the different subsets of games (card games, tabletop, slots and video poker), where Canadians can find everything available on their online casino. Sometimes they highlight the jackpot amount on certain games. Also, many games are based on pop culture (such as television shows, movies and comic books). For some, the familiarity adds more fun.

Depending on the casino game determines the minimal and maximum amounts you can wager. Many slot machine games start at just one cent per line. Games like blackjack allow players to bet between $1 and $100 per hand.  

888 Sports & 888 Casino offer plenty of bonuses

The majority of online sportsbooks offer exclusive casino bonuses for new users signing up. For example, Canadians opting to use 888 Sports as their online casino (called 888 Casino) receive a $88 no deposit bonus.

Most also offer an initial deposit bonus, matching a user’s new bonus. The bonus is a great way to get some extra funds to enjoy the different games available online. Promotions go on throughout the year as well. Make sure to check back often to receive bonuses, free spins, and other great promotions.

Some online sportsbooks even offer loyalty rewards, meaning players can receive extra for each deposit. The more you play, the more you will earn.

During this time eSports are experiencing a rise in popularity. Because the sport can be played remotely, eSports such as League of Legends and Overwatch. Most eSports stream online for free, meaning Canadians can watch them anywhere at any time.  

Spin Sports has a dedicated page for eSports

Customers who receive a sign-up bonus can use that bonus to bet on eSports. All our top-rated partners offer odds on eSports. Spin Sports offers a great variety of betting on eSports. Some of what they offer are shown in the photo below.

These are just a few options for entertain to help you navigate this time in the world. While sports will eventually return, the exact time and what will be rescheduled is up in the air. For now, it is best to find ways to keep yourself entertained at home. Free money for online casinos live betting on eSports and virtual games should help you pass the time.

Remember to stay safe and be vigilant. Once sports return and the world returns to normal, we will again start posting free betting predictions on upcoming events. However, until that day we here at Canadian Sports Books wish you and your families good health.
