    Pinnacle

    Can't wager until noon, Wednesday. Pinnacle has suspended wagering for their launch of Ontario website. Do I have to interact with other humans to kill time until then?

    I knew Canadians weren't banned from Pinnacle, but have they now become an official provider? Cool if they can pay licensing fees and keep low juice model.

    I should have known this was gonna be a mess. Downloaded Geoguard Location app and it won't allow me to log into Pinnacle. And their customer service department is useless when dealing with tech issues. I'm never gonna wager again because of this.

    somewhere the fine print says, may take up to 72 hours to verify documents.



    ​what a joke.

    the geo location passed ... the identity verification passed ... address verification - no matter what i send them keeps coming back not sufficient. even bank statements from the very banks from which i sent deposits to them via interac.

    no email assistance.

    getting frustrating ...

    I can't get passed the Geoguard app. It shows my location and all permissions enabled but when I log in it continuously gives me pop up message needing confirmation of Ontarion residency via this tool. They sent me an email this morning saying issues were resolved but same thing happens. I told them Im gonna use other books now. I've been with them for way over a decade. They wont miss my business, im just a small time degenerate gambler. What amazes me is that books using Geoguard as a location validator. It is so poorly rated. Anyways, I can be loyal to a fault. Time to move on. Good luck Jim getting your account up and running .

    Yes and same with web browser. OLG/Prolineplus don't need the software and they insist players be in Ontario as well.

    Its also quite accurate. At the end of every month google sends me a timeline of everywhere I've been tracked by my phone. The effeciency is scary good.

    Pinnacle is a gamblers book, no bells or whistles but it is the best in the business.

    All I need from a bookie is to 1) let me open an account, 2) let me bet a reasonable sized bets without personal limiting after few wins, 3) reliable in payouts.

    Everything else is not really necessary, but that's me, others may want to have fancy apps, bonuses, reduced juice, millions of props, extraordinary live options, etc...

    nice that a human finally replied, they are ''working on these issues and will get back to me.''

    had similar issues a few years back when I changed my email, having to go through the verification process. took only a couple of days and when it got done I had no problems wagering/depositing/withdrawing.

    until now lol.

    a human finally replies, and does absolutely nothing. if they bit off more than they can chew that's their problem. giving up, I've thrown in the towel. hopefully they find a way do return my meagre funds and I'll move on.

    Confirmation through customer service that a 3x roll is required to get your single free withdraw for a calendar month or pay 10% on withdraw funds.
    Holy fuk. 3x roll is large considering your not getting any sort of any sort of bonus.

    Regulated books are a 1x rollover to satisfy the books AML regulations. And none charge for a withdraw that I have seen.

    Pinny is a regulated book.

    They have had the free withdraw if last deposit rolled over 3x for many years now.

    At the time they added a withdraw fee they said they were not interested in dealing with people who want to deposit and withdraw multiple times per week.

    If it is 10% fee now, then they have increased that % to even further increase the incentive for those type of players to change or go elsewhere.

    Maybe it is only enabled for some users. I'm not sure about that.

    Did you do a quick deposit, withdraw, redeposit recently?


    Be good to know if it can avoided totally

    IMO If 3X rollover with Pinnacle is a problem, then you probably do something wrong.

    to Pinnacle








    wow less evidence than the myriad identity documents i have uploaded here have convicted countless felons of murder yet here i sit with 224 canadian dollars in my account and not able to place my minimum limit bets at the worlds best sports betting shop.

    and every night since downloading this feature, you can find me here:




    hard to belelieve I've been pulling the wool over your eyes almost every day you have been in business.


    starting to look like i'm never going to be able to bet again nor enjoy a banking roll. go ahead and confiscate my funds, that'll teach me. hard to win when everyone at the joint is pulling against you.
