Editor's Comments"Pinnacle is one of the most user-friendly online sports betting websites we’ve ever had the pleasure to review. Its entire look and navigation is slick, clean and professional, and is designed in such a way that it can be traversed just as easily by a first time bettor as a seasoned professional. Add to that its choice of highly competitive odds, soaring betting limits, safe and secure banking methods, 24/7 customer service and suite of betting lines, and you have a winning 5 star bookmaker on your hands."

Launched in 1998, Pinnacle has established itself as a safe and reputable online and mobile bookmaker that signs up sports betting fans from many countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Zambia, amongst others. It offers players an enormous choice of sports and other betting markets with the best odds and highest limits. Pinnacle is licensed and regulated in the gambling jurisdictions of Curacao and Malta.

Pinnacle Sportsbook Overview

For almost two decades Pinnacle has more than earned its reputation as a solid, reliable and fair odds-friendly online sportsbook. Since its humble beginnings late last century, it has evolved into the betting giant it is today that welcomes players from over 100 countries, including Zambia, Kenya, Ghana and Nigeria. The reason for its success is not hard to find – it has fixed odds betting on almost anything.

Fully regulated and licensed in Malta and Curacao, two of the world’s best regarded online gambling jurisdictions, Pinnacle’s levels of safety, fairness and trustworthiness are beyond reproach. In fact, this mobile and online bookmaker prides itself on delivering three main things to its ever-growing clientele - the best odds, highest limits and a unique operating policy where it welcome winners with open arms.

As part of its Winners Welcome policy, Pinnacle sports betting site does not discriminate against big winners by throttling or closing their accounts. On the contrary, it encourages successful and profitable players because it’s so focused on generating high betting volumes regardless of outcome. In addition, successful players help Pinnacle ‘tighten up’ their odds so they are as fair and attractive as possible.

Taking its commitment to its customers even further, Pinnacle offers some of the highest betting limits on the internet. For instance, ahead of the final of the 2014 World Cup, Pinnacle was only too happy to accept $1 million bets on the world’s premier football tournament. That said, as much as Pinnacle caters to big money online betting fans, it is equally attentive and fair to both small and medium bettors.

Pinnacle Main Features

The biggest benefit of any online sportsbook is convenience. Although there are still many bricks and mortar (land) bookmakers all over the world, they have declined in popularity due to the convenience offered by online and mobile sportsbooks such as Pinnacle. No matter your favourite sport to bet on, you’ll more than likely find it on Pinnacle with super competitive odds and the highest possible limits.

For instance, this leading internet bookmaker has betting lines on sports ranging from African soccer to crossfit to volleyball to golf to Formula 1 and everything in between. Plus, across some of its betting lines Pinnacle also offers Live In-Play betting. This is where you can bet on a sporting event while it is being played. Pinnacle offers this fun and dynamic facility on sports such as eSports, soccer and tennis.

A novel and useful feature offered by Pinnacle is its Betting Resources section. This is essentially a vast and constantly growing library of articles designed to advise punters on all aspects of sports betting. As such, they are listed under various categories ranging from individual sports (Baseball to Tennis) to Betting Psychology, Betting Strategy, Educational and more. You’ll find hundreds of articles such as:

  • Betting on the go made easy
  • American odds vs. Decimal odds
  • How to calculate betting margins
  • How to bet on Formula 1: A basic F1 betting strategy
  • Australian Sports Betting
  • How important are the first six games of the season in soccer?
  • How to calculate your own UCL match odds
  • Oscars Betting: How to predict an Academy Awards winner Tennis

Pinnacle for Mobile Devices

Pinnacle, like most of its largest rivals, is 100% mobile-friendly. This means you can use your favourite smart phone or tablet just like a ‘portable betting shop’ whenever and wherever you want. All you need to get started is a late model mobile device, a fast and reliable internet connection (via Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G or LTE) and the means and method to fund your Pinnacle account.

You must also be 18 or older and live in an unrestricted country i.e. a country that Pinnacle allows players to sign up from. As long as you meet the above criteria, you can be up and betting in a matter of minutes. What’s more, Pinnacle is designed to work on pretty much all smart devices running all manner of operating systems including Android, Windows and Apple iOS.

So whether you own an iPhone, a Samsung Galaxy or the latest Windows-powered Nokia, you should be able to access Pinnacle and all of its facilities 24/7, 365 days a year. Gone are the days when you had no choice but to trek all the way to your nearest land bookmaker and wait in a long queue to lay your bets. Thanks to Pinnacle for mobile, you can bet while on the move.

Sports Betting Bonuses at Pinnacle

Pinnacle currently doesn’t have any sign-up bonuses or free bets, no doubt because its odds are considered fair and competitive enough to entice new clients to sign up without the need for any kind of bonus, freebie or incentive.

How to Process Payments at Pinnacle

These include, but are not limited to:

  • Bank Wire
  • Credit/Debit Cards
  • Echeque
  • ecoPayz
  • EntroPay
  • E-Payments
  • Fast Banking
  • iDebit
  • Instadebit
