Complete Review of Sports Interaction

With almost 20 years in the industry, Sports Interaction is a major player in the online gaming market with a reputation for having one of the most user-friendly platforms around. Established in 1997, Sports Interaction is the first online gaming site to be fully licensed and regulated in Canada and Jersey (we assume they mean New Jersey) with their headquarters stationed in Montreal, Canada.

When reviewing sites that come with a good reputation, we find ourselves both skeptical and excited before we dive in. We're skeptical because the online gaming industry has a bad habit of saying everything is great and overlooking real issues with a site just because they have a cool name or some fancy graphics. We get excited because we know there's a possibility we're going to stumble upon a new gem in the market and be able to share an awesome gaming portal with the world.

The biggest thing we do with sites that have a good (or bad) reputation is not to let it jade our views and findings one way or another. We would hate to fall victim to the self-fulfilling prophecy and say a terrible site is great or vice versa just because we went into the review with the preset mindset. If you've read any of our reviews before, you know we aim to give the most honest and in-depth review we possibly can, regardless of it that comes out with the good, the bad, or the truly ugly.

With all that said, let's dive into Sports Interaction, Canada's first licensed and regulated online casino and sportsbook.

Sportsbook

It's fairly clear quickly that Sports Interaction likes to have their sportsbook in the foreground. When you arrive at the site, you don't find yourself on a traditional welcome page that outlines all the different areas of the site. You find yourself immediately on the main sportsbook page. While we would probably have opted to have some sort of welcome page, it's never a bad thing when a site is clearly proud about one element of their site. The sportsbook is Sports Interaction's baby.

Let's start by talking about the different betting options at the site, then additional features, and then we want to talk about the layout of the entire section.

Betting Options

Regarding betting options, it's a homerun for Sports Interaction. They have hundreds of different sporting leagues to choose from with a whole slew of different bet types under each. The main categories of the sports are always present, but they hide the leagues that are not in season to prevent any clutter. Curious how in depth they go? Here are a few examples. For basketball, they had 28 different countries or leagues offering bets at the time we last checked on the site. Personally, we've never had a huge desire to bet Latvian basketball, but we now know where to go if we want to. Soccer fan? How about 74 different options the last time that we checked. The point is that the site goes above and beyond to give you as many sports and leagues to bet on as possible.

The interesting thing as well with Sports Interaction is that unlike a lot of other sites, they offer a lot of betting options on the smaller and more obscure sporting leagues. Most books will only let you bet on the winner of the game or something like that for smaller leagues. Sports Interaction seems to have prop options and different bets available on a ton of the smaller events. We can't confirm this, but this sounds like a recipe for a lot of bad lines and possible opportunities to make some easy money for you.

Features

There were two options available at the top of the site that we were ecstatic to see. The first was the ability to change the language of the site through their translation system which means that you don't have to worry about errors and mistakes through Google Translate which can sometimes not be super friendly to gambling terminology. Currently, they only have French, but that makes since being a Canadian company and all.

The second was the ability to change the odds site wide into decimal, American, or fractional. While we wish this feature were universal, it sadly is not so we have to get out our party pants and celebrate anytime we see it.

Layout and Usability

This is where Sports Interaction takes the cake and rises above the rest of the competition. This is hands down the easiest to navigate sportsbook that this reviewer has personally ever had the privilege of navigating. On the left-hand side of the page, the site has your major betting categories that open up into a drop down menu of the different leagues offered when clicked. When you select a league, the betting options pop into the middle section of the screen. Everything is insanely clean and crisp and visually pleasing just to look at.

The center of the section starts with the current most popular bets as well as a convenient list of the live bets available and last minute bets that are about to close. You can also find a very informative news section at the bottom that will bring you up to speed on anything you need to know sports related. Honestly, the site goes above and beyond to make placing your bets as easy as possible. They even have a favorites tab you can load your favorite sports and teams into as well as a search function to look up a specific event. We tested out the search function, and it works extremely well; it's not just for show.

Casino Games

We were expecting the casino section of Sports Interaction to be a bit of an afterthought due to the fact they had the sports betting section so prominently posted and no real welcome page. We guess we expected this to be garbage they were hiding but in fact, the casino experience is really good at sports interaction.

The one thing that is somewhat interesting and confusing is that they have the casino games broken up into three tabs - two of the tabs make sense, and the third does not. The Casino tab has all of the card games, table games, and slots that you would expect to see at an online casino. The Live Casino tab has all of the live dealer style games. But Sports Interaction has a Games tab which we expected to be obscure things that didn't fit (like Keno or Bingo) but in fact, it's a completely different list of casino games. Why they didn't combine the two lists...we're not sure.

It's really not a big deal having the games in two spots; it's just kind of strange. Either way, it doesn't take away from the experience, so we will continue on with the review and break all three of the sections down. Just remember, if you don't see the casino games you like in the Casino section, keep reading for the Games section as well because it might be there.

Casino Section

Within the casino section, game types are listed on the left-hand side of the screen with a few popular games advertised in the center of the screen.

Matchplay Casino Card Games

Sports Interaction offered 8 6 card gaming options. The reason for the strikethrough and the lowering of the game number is that it looks like they had 8 graphics slots but only 6 games, so they just listed 2 of them twice. In regards to the game graphics, they could use a bit of a facelift if we were being picky.

  • Baccarat
  • Blackjack Multi-hand 5
  • Blackjack Switch
  • Caribbean Poker
  • Casino Hold' Em
  • Multiplayer Blackjack Surrender
Table GamesTable Games

The table game graphics seemed to be a step up from the card game offerings. This time they actually had 8 different games to choose from.

  • Age of the Gods Roulette
  • 3D Roulette
  • Video Roulette
  • American Roulette
  • Craps
  • Club Roulette
  • European Roulette
  • Roulette Pro
Slots Slots

Sports Interaction had 46 different slot options to choose from (at least in this category). There are actually more games coming in the branded section below as well as in the games category. The quality of these games was AMAZING. They did not hold back with the credit card when it came to purchasing games. A ton of the games were big name games and ones you'd see in a major casino, not knock offs.

For Sports BetsProgressive Jackpots

There were 11 games offering jackpots at the casino. Surprisingly, the casino didn't have the size of the jackpots listed if you weren't logged into the site.

Specialty Branded Games

Branded games are the ones that are the most expensive ones for the casino to purchase. These are the ones that are going to be named after TV shows or other popular forms of entertainment you are probably familiar with. Bravo to them for getting 19 branded gaming options.

  • Ace Ventura Pet Detective

Video Poker Video Poker

The quality of the games in this section was somewhere between the card game quality and the slot quality. They had 8 options to choose from.

  • 10's or Better

Live Casino

The live casino section of sports interaction offers the ability to play with a real live dealer at a real live table from the comfort of your own home through streaming technologies. The site offered the following games:

  • Baccarat
  • Blackjack
  • Casino Hold Em
  • Roulette

In addition to these four games, they had two variations that we want to point out that looked pretty cool. They had Immersive Roulette which was a form of roulette that uses close-up cameras to give you a zoomed in look of the ball bouncing around into the slots. This is great for people that like to sweat the ball drop. They also had something called Live Party Blackjack which involves lower stakes tables, a party host, and a DJ. This is great for anyone looking for the party atmosphere but doesn't feel like leaving the house. We've never seen the Live Party Blackjack before, and frankly, it looks like a pretty fun idea.

Banking Options

Locating a master chart of the different deposit and withdrawal options was a challenge as it looks like they only show you what options are available to your specific country once you log in. While this makes our job tougher as reviewers, this is ultimately better for you as a user. You won't have to sift through options to see which work for you; you'll only see the options that are available to you. The only time this might be annoying is if you want to see what options are available before you open an account.

We spent some time digging around and were able to find most of the available options as well as some basic information with each.

Deposit Options

  • Check
  • Credit/Debit Card
  • EcoCard
  • Entropay Virtual Visa Card
  • iDebit
  • InstaDebit
  • Instant Banking
  • Instant Echecks
  • Skrill
  • Swiff
  • Ukash
  • UseMyFunds

From the options we were able to dig further into, it looks like there is a minimum deposit of $20 for almost all of the options here. The good news is that every option we checked had no fees whatsoever associated with depositing.

Withdrawal Options

We've included the notes about each option that we were able to find. This information wasn't prominently posted but could be found in the rules and regs of the site. It looks like almost all of the options gave you one free withdrawal per month and subsequent withdrawals had a small fee associated. It's important to note that the size of the fee was significantly smaller than the industry average. Our guess is they are only charging exactly what it costs them to process the withdrawal.

Checks

Stop Payment of checks issued carry a fee of CAD $35.

EcoCard

There is one free EcoCard withdrawal per calendar month, for any subsequent EcoCard withdrawals in the same month, a fee of 3% of the withdrawal amount will be charged to your account.

Instadebit

Customers receive one free Instadebit withdrawal per month. Any subsequent Instadebit withdrawal in the same month will incur a processing fee of CAD $2. To be eligible to use Instadebit as a withdrawal option you must first make a deposit using Instadebit.

Instant Echecks

Customers receive one free Instant Echecks withdrawal per month. Any subsequent Instant Echecks withdrawal in the same month will incur a processing fee of CAD $2. To be eligible to use Instant Echecks as a withdrawal option you must first make a deposit using Instant Echecks.

Wire Transfers

We allow one free Wire Transfer withdrawal per calendar month. Any subsequent Wire Transfer withdrawal in the same month will incur a fee of CAD $7.

All Wire Transfer or Instant Banking withdrawals returned citing invalid or incomplete banking details will be subject to the fees charged to Sports Interaction by our Provider.

Wire Transfers

We allow one free Wire Transfer withdrawal per calendar month. Any subsequent Wire Transfer withdrawal in the same month will incur a fee of CAD $7.

All Wire Transfer or Instant Banking withdrawals returned citing invalid or incomplete banking details will be subject to the fees charged to Sports Interaction by our Provider.

Bonus Promotions

Surprisingly and strangely odd, we weren't able to locate any bonus promotions on the site for the sportsbook or for the casino. We spent a decent amount of time navigating around looking for it but didn't have any luck. We were even able to locate the sitemap and find a bonus promotion link that went to a dead page. What we assume is that they do have promotions, but they have a problem with the link to the page that they are advertised on.

We will reach out to the site and see what we can find out for you.

Customer Service

Regarding customer service at Sports Interaction, we saw some things that we liked and some areas that we would like to see improvement on. The site has a very in-depth FAQ section with a working search function that seems to do a great job of addressing a lot of common issues.

In addition to the self-serve options, the site offers phone and contact form help. Sports Interaction says they aim to answer all contact form requests within four hours, but during rare occasions, they can take up to 24 hours to get back to you.

Here's where we have a few issues. The site offers no live chat option or email option. Yes, a contact form is a lot like email, but it really wouldn't be that challenging to add a few email addresses for those of us that are eccentric. You can also say that phone support is superior to live chat except there are days that you want to get something handled and don't particularly want to have to pick up the phone. We live in a new era where people are scared of the phone, and as much as we want to deny that, it's best just to embrace it's happening.

Conclusion

Overall, we were pretty dang pleased with what we saw at Sports Interaction. Right off the bat, it's great to see a site that is licensed through a country like Canada as that means they are going to be held to a higher standard of laws and regulation.

The sportsbook at Sports Interaction is one of the best laid out and the most user friendly. Other sites should take note of how they've done things and try their best to emulate it. The casino is surprisingly not an afterthought, but a site section that is good enough to operate on its own if it had to. The game quality of the slots was incredible with a ton of branded games and games that you would see in a real brick and mortar casino.

Sports Interaction is a win in our book, especially for players that live in Jersey or Canada.
