Pinnacle Sports may not be the obvious first choice for an online sports book for punters in Australia, but they are in fact one of the world’s largest and most respected online bookmakers.
Pinnacle Sports was founded back in 1998 and have built strong reputation and trust in the sports betting community based around providing a product of the highest quality.
Here are a few of the key reasons why you should join Pinnacle Sports.
Best odds in the industry
This sounds like a bold claim, but you will find that Pinnacle, more often than not, will offer you the best odds on virtually any market. Pinnacle is targeted towards the serious sports better. That means that you won’t find flashy promotions or bonus offers. Instead, they are able to channel those marketing budgets into providing punters the lowest margins around.
That means more money in your pocket!
Better than an exchange
Some will argue that you get better odds on the exchange at Betfair. While that may sometimes be the case, often punters will fail to factor in the commission that is charged on all winning bets on Betfair which can be in the vicinity of 5-6%.
At Pinnacle, what you see is what you get. There are no extra commissions, so you will often end up with a better price than what you would receive for the same bet on Betfair.
Pinnacle Sports claim to offer the highest limits per bet of any online bookmaker in the world. At the 2014 Soccer World Cup, Pinnacle accepted bets of up to US$1 million. Big enough for you?
Winning Players Welcome
Limits usually only become a problem for winning punters who often find their bets restricted if they inflict too much damage on a particular sports book. That’s not a problem at Pinnacle, thanks to their “Winners Welcome Policy”.
Pinnacle actively welcome all players, winners or otherwise, to continue betting on their site. Their business policy is to maximize volume irrespective of whether it is generated from profitable punters.
Their traders are focussed on managing odds, not punters!
We’ll go into more detail about arbitrage betting in a future article, but in short, arbitrage allows you to exploit the difference in price on a market between two online sports books to guarantee a small profit.
Many sports books will attempt to hinder your ability to exploit an arb opportunity by reducing your limits or even closing your account. However Pinnacle Sports will not do that. They welcome arbitrage bettors and are happy to take all bets.
So what are you waiting for?
Any serious sports bettor should have an account at Pinnacle Sports. There’s nowhere else in the world where you will get the range of markets, liquidity, low margins and acceptance as a winning punter.
The fact that Pinnacle Sports is licensed overseas should not be a deterrent for Australians to join. They cater for international players with a range of cashier options, and they provide excellent Australian-focussed markets. Often you’ll find the very best odds in the world for AFL and NRL at Pinnacle.
