TonyBet Ontario launch and partnerships

TonyBet launched in Ontario almost immediately after the launch of legal betting in the province in April 2022, after successfully registering with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. The sportsbook itself had been operational for some time prior to its expansion to Ontario, however, with a presence in Europe, based out of the Baltic states, since 2011.

Along with European-based options like TonyBet, major American sportsbooks like BetMGM, Caesars, and later DraftKings are all also operational in Ontario.

It only takes a few minutes to sign up for a TonyBet Ontario account. Follow a link on this page to the TonyBet site, click the purple sign-up button and fill out the registration form to make an account. Please note that you must be at least 19 years old to bet on sports online in Ontario. You’ll need to input the following details:

All that remains is to agree to the terms and conditions, and you’ll be all set. Note that the TonyBet app uses geolocation to ensure you are actually located in Ontario, and you won’t be able to place bets if you are not in the province.

Account verification

Keep in mind that TonyBet will need to verify some of the information that you provide in order to determine that you’re eligible to have an account and bet. It’s possible that the sportsbook may ask you to submit additional documents to corroborate the details you enter on the registration form.

Best features at TonyBet Sportsbook

One perk of using an international sportsbook like TonyBet is that you’re often going to get a wider range of sports than you might from a US-based company. This includes soccer, basketball, football, baseball, hockey, golf, tennis, esports (including e-soccer, e-basketball, Counterstrike, and Arena of Valor), handball, boxing, MMA, Formula One, stock car racing, Indy car racing, darts, volleyball, futsal, rugby, snooker, water polo, winter sports, motorcycle racing, lacrosse, cycling and Aussie rules.

TonyBet Casino

Casino games aren’t everyone’s preference, but for those who like placing sports wagers and participating in casino games like poker, roulette, blackjack, slots and so on, TonyBet has those options. In the top toolbar of the TonyBet site or app, you can select the “Live Casino” or “Casino” options to check out the games.

Live betting on the TonyBet Ontario betting app

One of the most popular ways to wager these days is live betting: using fluctuating odds to place wagers on games as they are taking place. As opposed to standard pregame wagering, this format allows you to place new wagers at any point during the game, depending on what options the sportsbook offers.

While most sportsbooks offer some degree of live betting, TonyBet’s interface is one of the sportsbook’s strong points. The two most important factors to live betting are update speed (so you don’t miss out on any odds) and betting options, and TonyBet delivers on both counts.

Live betting has its own tab at TonyBet, which you can access from the top toolbar. Once you click on it, all the options that you see will be live bets. You can monitor odds changes via TonyBet’s green and red animations to indicate when odds move up or down. There are also live timers, stats and analytics.

Basic bets available on the TonyBet app

TonyBet offers the standard set of wagers, plus a range of secondary markets and props. You can display your odds in the American format or as decimals or fractions, or using the Malaysian, Indonesian or Hong Kong formats. The examples below use the American format.

Moneylines

A moneyline bet is the most straightforward kind of wager. When you make this type of bet, you back one of the two teams in a game to win, and if they do, you do. Your payout depends on the odds at the time you placed your bet; wagering on a favorite has a lower potential payout than betting on an underdog.

A big gap between the odds on the two teams indicates that the sportsbook anticipates a mismatch, whereas a game that the sportsbook thinks is too close to call might have both sides at or around odds of -110.

For example, if the Toronto Raptors were playing the Boston Celtics, you might see TonyBet displaying the odds as Toronto +140, Boston -175. That means that a $100 bet on the underdog Raptors to win would stand to net a profit of $140 if Toronto wins (you would also receive your stake back, for a total payout of $240). Meanwhile, a bet of $175 would stand to net a $100 profit if you were betting on the Celtics to win.

Point spreads

A point spread is a bet that takes the margin of victory into account. As opposed to moneyline bets, which aim to use the odds to make each side of a wager somewhat appealing, point spreads use a handicap to do the same.

Spreads display as a number with a plus or minus sign, like +5.5. A plus sign indicates an underdog, whereas a minus sign indicates a favorite. If Toronto is +5.5, that means even if the Raptors lose, your bet will still win if they lose by fewer than five points. Meanwhile, if Boston is at -5.5, the Celtics must win by at least six points for a spread bet on them to win.

In other words, you can imagine the spread adding or subtracting to your team’s final score. Since both sides will usually have odds around -110, spreads tend to make betting on either the underdog or the favorite equally viable options.

Totals

Totals — aka over/under bets — allow you to bet on the combined score of both teams in a game, rather than the result. TonyBet will set a line for the total number of points in the game, and you can wager on whether the actual total will be over or under that line. As with spread bets, the odds will be the same or similar (generally around -110) for either side of the wager.

Futures

Futures bets are what they sound like — bets on outcomes further in the future than an upcoming game. Common examples are things like the winner of a championship, conference or division, potentially before the season even starts. You might also place a futures wager on a player to win an individual award (Heisman Trophy, MVP, etc.), or top points scorer.

Since anything can happen over a long period of time, futures betting is challenging. Nonetheless, the odds will reflect that, making futures a potentially appealing option for bettors comfortable with a degree of risk.

Props

Prop bets allow you to bet on statistical outcomes other than the end result of a game. You might bet on an individual player or team’s points, touchdowns, rebounds, steals, penalties or hits, for instance. You can also find game props, which might give you yes/no questions, like “Will one team lead all four quarters?” or “Will the game end in regulation?” You can also find things like the race to X points, allowing you to bet on which team will reach a certain point total first.

Single-game parlays at TonyBet Ontario

Single-game parlays let you combine multiple wagers from the same game on one betting slip. For instance, you might bet on a team to win, the over/under and a player to score more than X points. In doing so, you receive the potential for a bigger payout, but each of the individual wagers that make up your parlay must win; otherwise, the parlay loses.

Disappointingly, however, TonyBet does not usually offer the option to make your own same-game parlays. You will occasionally find prepackaged SGPs on select games, but in general, the options are limited.

How long does it take to settle a winning bet at TonyBet Sportsbook?

This can depend on the bet in question. For example, live bets should settle immediately, while pregame bets may take slightly longer, and futures need to wait until whatever you bet on has a resolution, which may take months. Still, all wagers should settle well within an hour of the conclusion of the game or event.

Player props and game props at TonyBet

Prop bets are a popular way to wager, and TonyBet has a solid selection. Here are some common player props you might encounter:

Meanwhile, TonyBet also offers a consistent range of game props, which could include the following:

The widest range of props will be available on major events like the Super Bowl, March Madness, or the World Series, where you’ll be able to find plenty of event-specific options. Still, though, TonyBet also offers a solid selection of prop bets on everyday action, plus niche and international sports, as well.

Deposits/withdrawals

People in Ontario have a few options for depositing and withdrawing at TonyBet. All of the options for depositing process instantly. Here are your options, along with their respective minimum deposit amounts:

For withdrawing, meanwhile, the list is similar but not identical. Below are TonyBet’s current withdrawal options, plus the minimum amounts:

Does TonyBet Ontario pay instantly?

The exact speed at which TonyBet pays out will depend on your chosen method. Most of the options typically take between two and five banking days.

Customer support and responsible gambling

TonyBet offers a few ways to seek assistance, including a 24/7 live chat and by email at [email protected]. You can also tweet @TonyBetCanada. However, there’s no option to contact customer support via phone.

As with any AGCO-registered sportsbook, TonyBet offers several measures to users who want to limit their gambling to encourage responsible play. You can place limits on how much you deposit or wager, or a limit on your time on the sportsbook. You can also implement a cool-off period between placing wagers or depositing. To take a full break from gambling, consider adding yourself to a self-exclusion list.
