New to online sports betting?

We’re here to help get you in the game at PlayNow Sports by looking at the features of online sports betting.

Single-Event Betting

Single-event betting has been legal in Canada since August 2021 and is available at PlayNow Sports.

This means you can wager on the outcome of a single event or game and you are not required to parlay that selection with another.

Want to place a bet on the Vancouver Canucks to win the game? Go ahead and make that selection – no need to parlay it with another selection from another game unless you choose to.

Players still have the option to build parlays on PlayNow Sports, but it’s no longer required.

Betslip Information

When you’re ready to begin betting, make your selection on any game you choose. Your selection will appear in the right-hand section on desktop or the bottom of your mobile device.

Select the box under To Wager and enter the amount you’d like to bet.

  • PlayNow Sports has a Quick Bets option if you’re looking to place a set amount.

Once you’ve made your selection and entered your wager amount, you will see a green button at the bottom of the slip. This will show your bet amount and potential total return. Select this button to place your bet, or you can press the X at the top right corner to erase your selections.

You have three items in your betslip to track your wagers.

  • The Betslip tab is where you can make and complete your wagers.
  • My Bets will track the wagers. You can view bets available for Cash Out, bets still Pending, or bets that have been settled.
  • Settings allow you to adjust the Quick Bets function and the Odds Format, and you can enable a Confirm Bets function that will allow you to confirm your bet in the betslip before the transaction is complete.

Cashout is available at PlayNow Sports

The Cashout feature allows you to settle a bet prior to the completion of an event.

Bets eligible for Cashout will appear under the Cashout section on the betslip. You can also adjust your Cash Out settings so a wager cashes out once it reaches a certain value.

If a bet is eligible for cashout, the cashout option may still not be available all the time. Bets should not be made for the sole intention of cashing out a bet.

If you use cashout, the funds from your bet will be deposited back into your PlayNow account.


Withdraw Funds

You can withdraw funds from your PlayNow account directly into your bank account.

Go into your Player Account and select Withdraw Funds. You will be asked to choose a withdraw amount. All funds available for withdraw will appear under Cash Balance.

Once you have chosen a withdrawal amount, you can select Next to begin steps to complete the transaction. Please allow 2-3 business days for the transaction to process and funds to be deposited into the financial institution account of your choosing.
