Pinnacle

Founded in 1998, Pinnacle (formerly known as Pinnacle Sports) is one of the world’s largest online sports betting and gaming companies. Based on the island of Curaçao, and fully licensed and regulated by the government of the Dutch Antilles, the company serves customers in more than 100 countries, and its website is available in 19 languages (although Pinnacle has chosen voluntarily to not serve the US market because of issues surrounding Federal regulations).

Best odds and low margins

Unlike many competing bookmakers, as a matter of philosophy, Pinnacle does not offer promotions or bonuses to lure potential customers. Instead their business model is based on reduced margin pricing; their profitability is derived from making bets at a low margin but, consequently, on a much higher turnover.

The minimum amount that a player can bet is US $1. However, there is no maximum, and the site is prepared to accept a bet of any size and odds, provided that its “book exposure” is properly covered.

The best coverage of major sporting events

Pinnacle offers players the chance to bet on all major sports – soccer, tennis, golf, baseball and American football to name but a few, but also gives them the opportunity to place a wager on more niche pastimes, like chess, lacrosse and yachting.

In addition to Sports betting, Pinnacle also covers online casino games, poker, eSports and was the first company to cover drone racing back in 2016. There is also the opportunity for players to place wagers on politics, entertainment, weather and awards.

Payment & withdrawal options

One major disadvantage of Pinnacle is that although it offers a wide range of choice when it comes to making payment, the withdrawal options are much more limited, and are restricted to bank transfer and largely ecommerce web-based payment methods like Skrill and Citadel. Most of their major competitors, by comparison, offer more diverse and popular withdrawal options. 

Pinnacle Mobile

For those wishing to bet via their mobile devices, the company offers two options.

The first is to enter the Pinnacle website URL in the browser on their mobile device  (choosing the appropriate language option first) and connect. The website has been designed so that the interface will adapt to the screen of all mobile devices, and players can bet on live events, check their account balance, add money, and the like.

The alternative is to download the Pinnacle Lite mobile app from the Google Play or Apple Store. This has the advantage, compared to the mobile version, of providing notifications and alerts when something significant occurs in a live event.
