Welcome Bonuses – 3.5/5

Our Funbet Review found two healthy Funbet promotions available for new users:

  1. The Sports Welcome Bonus provides bettors with the chance to get a 50% bonus when they first deposit worth up to C$50.

Funbet Review of Bonuses

For new Funbet customers. Min. deposit is C$10. To be eligible for this promotion, players must input **WFUNBETSB** in the ‘Bonus Code’ field when making a qualifying deposit into their Sports Cash Account (Balance). The bonus amount of 50% of your qualifying deposit, up to C$50, shall then be credited to your Sports Bonus Account after the qualifying deposit has been made. Your deposit and bonus must be wagered six (6) times on (1) settled single sports bets with odds of at least 2.0; or (2) settled combo bets with min odds of 2.0, for combination bets each selection must also be with odds of at least 1.30 before you can withdraw your bonus and any winnings resulting from it. Deposit and bonus wagering must be completed within 30 days of your first deposit. The 50% bonus up to C$50 can only be wagered on sports betting. The General Terms and Conditions of the Funbet website apply

  1. Alternatively, the Casino Welcome Bonus gives a 100% deposit bonus up to C$200 + 50 Free Spins for casino gaming.

How to claim the Funbet Casino Welcome Offer

New players only. Deposit min. is C$10. 50 Free Spins will be granted after the deposit bonus has been wagered 30 times All Free Spins from the New Player Welcome Bonus are valid for 72 hours upon activation, unless otherwise stated. The maximum withdrawal amount for a player from their Free Spins is C$100. The Terms and Conditions of the Funbet website apply.

*Both Funbet promotions require a bonus code to be entered when depositing for activation.

Sports Welcome Bonus

The Sports Welcome Bonus is available only for sports betting on the site and gives a maximum of C$50. The offer requires the bonus code to be entered when making your first deposit. Also, keep in mind that a minimum first deposit of C$10 is required to activate the bonus.

Our Funbet Review finds Sports Bonus to be slightly below average for the region with a max bonus of C$50. The promo is however very easy to unlock and has a wagering requirement of only 6X the bonus in 30 days.

Casino Welcome Bonus

As mentioned above, the Casino Bonus gives new users the opportunity to pick up to C$200 + 50 Free Spins on their first deposit. Free Spins can only be used on the Starburst slots game. The bonus code must be applied during a player’s first deposit to unlock the promo.

The Casino Bonus is in-line with other top casinos in Canada, giving players the chance to get going off with a healthy head-start. The 30X wagering bonus is fairly high however making bonus funds not easy to unlock for withdrawal. Free Spins expire in 72 hours which is around the industry standard.

Betting Markets and Available Sports – 4.5/5

The sports collection is one of the main selling points of the site found by our Funbet Review. The site features over 30 sports and hundreds of betting markets, giving users tonnes of options daily.

Popular American Leagues, in particular, are very well represented including the NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS and NFL. What sets the site apart, however, is the big selection of niche sports such as eSports, Darts, Volleyball and Gaelic Football.

Funbet Betting Odds – 4/5

The odds were discovered to be almost perfectly in-line with the average in Canada by our Funbet Review. For example, let’s take an NBA playoffs game with the Lakers against the Nuggets. The odds on the Lakers to win are 1.33, which would pay out $133 on a $100 bet. This is exactly in-line with other top sportsbooks such as 888sports.

Currently, a bonus odds feature is available on the site which gives boosted odds on combo bets. To qualify you must place a pre-match combo bet with a minimum of 5 selections at minimum odds of 1.30 each. You can get up to 50% boosted odds if you reach up to 15 selections.

Available Sports

Funbet Live Streaming – 3/5

Our Funbet Review found no live streaming feature to be available on the platform. Users can, however, place in-play bets on both mobile and desktop devices. A schedule of live betting sporting events is listed daily in the ‘Upcoming’ tab of the ‘In-play’ section. Ocular live betting sports include football, basketball, baseball, tennis, ice hockey and cricket.

Funbet Mobile App – 3/5

While there isn’t a Funbet App available at the moment, mobile users do have the option of playing via a mobile browser. To bet via mobile simply visit the operator’s website on your mobile browser and log in, just like via computer. The site is optimised to Android, iOS and Windows devices, ensuring smooth navigation and quick betting.

Our Funbet Review does expect a Funbet App to be released in the near future, so keep a lookout for any developments.

Payment Options – 4.5/5

The following payment methods are available at the operator currently:

  • VISA
  • Mastercard
  • Maestro
  • Skrill
  • Neteller
  • Ecopayz
  • PaysafeCard
  • MiFinity
  • MuchBetter

All methods have a minimum deposit limit of C$10. There is no processing fee on the side of the sportsbook but a fee may be incurred by your payment provider. You may choose to fund your account in a variety of different currencies which include Canadian Dollars.

Customer Service- 5/5

Arguably the greatest strength found by our Funbet Review is the customer support on the site. The operator offers 24/7 service in both English and French via live chat, email and phone.

Response times for live chat and phone are within a minute and replies for emails vary between 12-24 hours. Alternatively, a detailed FAQ section is available with answers to a number of frequently asked questions.

Funbet Review Verdict

Our review concludes that Funbet is a solid option for online sports betting/casino gaming for Canadians. The main strengths of the site lie in their large sports collection and top customer service.

Users may also choose from two bonuses to start off on the site which is always a plus. Where the operator can improve is by adding a mobile app and live streaming to the platform.
