Rizk has been pushing their way into the conversation when it comes to ‘fresh’ bookmakers in the last few years, if only due to their persistence above anything else. They seem to believe in the idea of fair online gaming, putting an emphasis on their desire to be innovative above anything else.
They are operated under the current laws of betting in Malta, which is where they are based. They are regulated under the Malta Gaming Authority, which could explain why some folks in Canada may not yet have heard of their work.
Whilst their casino options tend to be focused on more so than anything else, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t pretty stacked when it comes to the sports you can bet on. There are a series of options littered throughout the site, totalling 37 – although some of those include e-Sports.
Hockey Betting Options
Canadian fans certainly aren’t going to be short of selections when it comes to the big, wide world of hockey. In addition to having plenty of markets available for the NHL aka the National Hockey League, there are a plethora of other leagues at your disposal. This includes the KHL, IIHF World Championship, Liiga, SHL and even Outright bets if you’re feeling confident about a specific competition.
Upon clicking on any given game, on an interface which is pretty smooth, you’re given a series of options regarding what you want to bet on specifically. You can bet on the final result, the total number of goals, double chance, and even what is going to happen in each specific period. So if you happen to know a thing or two about how a team tends to finish, or even start a game, you’re in luck.
Other Sports Betting Options
Whilst the live betting options specifically are pretty fun, we’re still taken aback by just how much content there is to bet on when browsing through what sport you want to bet on. It makes it pretty easy to understand the specifics regarding each sport even if you aren’t an expert, which is always pretty handy.
The full list of available sports includes: Alpine skiing, American football, Aussie rules, badminton, bandy, baseball, basketball, beach volley, biathlon, boxing, Counter-Strike, cricket, cross-country, cycling, darts, Dota 2, floorball, football, Formula E, futsal, golf, handball, ice hockey, League of Legends, MMA, motorsport, Nordic combined, Overwatch, rugby, ski jumping, snooker, specials, Starcraft, table tennis, tennis, volleyball and waterpolo.
Jumping from page to page can be a little bit challenging as the ‘scroll’ function is a little bit hit and miss, and you can certainly tell that Rizk is still in an infancy stage when it comes to the functions. With that being said, they definitely seem to be on the right track.
It certainly seems and feels like one of the primary functions behind Rizk stems from their work within the world of casinos. Their Wheel of Rizk is one of their primary draws to the site, and they definitely seem to be pretty proud of it. Upon entering the casino stage of Rizk, it quickly becomes clear that there options are endless when it comes to what you can bet on.
In addition to Dream Catcher and the Blackjack, which are amongst the most popular games on the site, there’s an abundance of Roulette games for punters to enjoy. Some are more effective and popular than others, but with a big money Wheel of Fortune Tournament currently running, it feels like there’s always something going on that will cater to the masses.
Upon opening an account you can win at least 10 free spins on the Wheel of Rizk, which sets the tone for your stay on the site. There are a few promotions available when it comes to the casino section, but if we’re talking about specific Canadian-based offers, there isn’t all too much to work with.
There is a Welcome Offer at Rizk Sports with a minimum deposit of $20 CAD and you will get $10 CAD Rizk Free Bet. It can be used on any event offered, but this bonus is not available in Sweden.
While it’s a little bit wild and all over the place at times, Rizk feels like the kind of bookmaker that goes under the radar in comparison to the big dogs. That’s not necessarily always a bad thing, as it allows them to build a pretty loyal fanbase – of which more Canadians should join.
The options regarding hockey are pretty vast which is always going to be a bonus, although speaking of bonuses, there isn’t much that allows them to cater towards any Canadian fans they may have. From a broader spectrum, though, there does seem to be the occasional bonus that’s worth your time.
