Pinnacle Review

Pinnacle Sports was founded in 1998. With 20+ years service to its name, the company rebranded to Pinnacle is 2016 after being able to purchase the www.pinnacle.com domain.

Pinnacle made an instant impact on the sports betting industry by slashing the traditional bookmaker margin model which other operators followed. This meant that its odds were better than all others, and whilst the profit margins for each are lower, the higher turnover volume offsets that.

This betting firm is also known as one of the premier sites for esports betting. It was the first mainstream sportsbook to open markets on esports events in 2010 and Pinnacle now claims that this market is its 7th largest in terms of betting volume - eclipsing both golf and rugby.

You can sign up using our exclusive Pinnacle VIP code NEWBONUS.

Pinnacle Horse Racing Betting Tips & more

Horse racing fans will be pleased to hear that Pinnacle has recently added racing to the list of sports available to bet on on their website.

Compared to other bookmakers, this section of the Pinnacle website is still fairly basic. Users can bet on all UK and Irish races taking place that day, plus a selection of International meetings. Jockey and trainer information is displayed on each racecard, along with weight, age, recent form figures and the odds.

On Pinnacle's horse racing home page, the "Next Three" box allows users to quickly access the three next three races that will be taking place. Markets for the following two days of racing can also be selected via the tabs on the homepage.

Other Sports


The soccer tab, which is the most popular sport with this sportsbook, is headlined by the giant European leagues plus the Champions League and Europa League. You have 29 countries in total with a combined effort of 85 leagues. There are sportsbooks that offer more in terms of soccer betting markets, but we think this is still a healthy number.

Pinnacle delivers plenty of action on several other sports besides soccer and horse racing. Baseball comes from the MLB, Japan, Mexico and South Korea. Ice hockey includes the NHL along with leagues from Russia, Sweden, Norway, Austria and Czech Republic among others. 

Basketball is one of the larger sections of the website, with games from 25 different countries included. Tennis is well backed as well, so are American football, esports, cricket and golf. Essentially, although the market depth is not like a regular online bookmaker, the coverage of matches and games is spot on throughout.

Pinnacle Live Betting

Pinnacle offers live betting on a number of sports including soccer, baseball, tennis, American football and ice hockey to name a few. Individual event coverage is not spectacular when compared to betting sites such as bet365 and Betfair, but it’s enough for starters. Market depth is limited in the same way as pre-match betting is, and you also have the high bet limits if you’re a heavy hitter.

The Pinnacle live betting interface can best be described as basic. There is no match visualisation centre and no game stats provided. It is all rather basic to be honest. We get the impression that this betting site has rested on its laurels somewhat. As it no longer offers market-leading odds, it definitely needs to up its game throughout to become a serious player in this competitive industry.

Pinnacle Website & Login

Quite clearly Pinnacle is not your average online bookmaker. It plays by its own rules, which is one of the reasons for its longevity. For new customers entering the site for the first time, this is what you’ll find:

Winners Are Welcome


Pinnacle sports has a ‘Winners Policy’. This policy does not restrict or limit the accounts of winning players like several other bookmakers have been known to do. It states that Pinnacle’s business model is based on high volume and it relies on sharp bettors to tighten its odds where required

Arbitrage Friendly


The majority of bookmakers frown upon punters that do arbitrage betting - but not Pinnacle. It doesn’t discriminate against any punters, regardless of their motivation. There is an awesome in-depth guide to get you started which is well worth reading, too. Pinnacle also has some of the highest bet limits found online. This makes it the go-to sportsbook for serious bettors. It will accept handicap bets up to $30,000 on all EPL, Serie A, La Liga and Bundesliga matches which is amazing. So, if you want to start arbitrage betting, this is the place to do it. 

Betting Resources


You’ll find one of the best betting resource libraries of any bookmaker at Pinnacle. It is jammed-packed with analysis, tips and information to give you the edge before betting. There are also stacks of how to guides for new customers that are looking for the basics. Even if you’re not betting, this content is well worth reading if you’re a sports fan.

Pinnacle Casino


Pinnacle added an online casino to its suite in 2004 and it’s grown ever since. Today, it offers more than 1,000 video slots powered by some of the biggest names in the industry such as NetEnt, Microgaming, Blueprint Gaming and Yggdrasil. It also has a premium lineup of virtual table and card games, video poker and a standout live dealer casino. Many players join Pinnacle purely for this first-class casino - that is a testament to how good this product is.

Website/Usability


Overall, the site is well laid out. The main menus and sub menus are neatly displayed. When you click on a particular sport, the menu simply expands, so you can refine your options down to the league or match you want. 

The homepage is a little curious. If there is no in-play action, all Pinnacle promotes is its betting resources coupled with several banners telling us why we should choose its site. Our recommendation is to use the Pinnacle mobile site - even if you’re on a desktop (there’s a link at the bottom of the page which allows you to switch). This does away with the banners and you get an instant list of featured games to browse. A quick click takes you to the heart of the action. From there, bet placement only takes a few seconds and you have skin in the game. 

Pinnacle Mobile App

A native Pinnacle sports mobile app is available to download for iOS and Android devices. The iOS app can only be downloaded from Canada, Sweden, Finland and the Ukraine. The Pinnacle android app is worldwide.

The app, which is called Pinnacle Lite, covers all of the same sports and markets as the web-based site offers. But, you get added features where you can track the odds with a visual graph display and set alerts so when it hits a certain price you can get your money in the game. It has a simple design with a main slider menu so finding your way around is easy. You can do your banking with the peace of mind knowing that the platform is SSL protected and it’s responsive which makes betting in-play quick and easy.

Pinnacle Withdrawals & Deposits

There are a host of payment methods available at Pinnacle. Which you can use will depend on your country of residence and the currency you are using as to which ones you can use. This is a list of the most common options:

  • Credit Cards
  • Skrill
  • Neteller
  • Entropay
  • ecoPayz
  • Trustly
  • Instant Banking
  • Bank Transfer

If your currency is set to pound sterling (GBP), you can withdraw to all of the above options with the exception of credit cards. There is a flat withdrawal fee of £8 for each method (£12 for bank transfers). There’s also a further 3% fee added if you withdraw before rolling over your deposit amount three times. Payout times are within 24 hours, but a bank transfer will take a bit longer.

Pinnacle Customer Service

Pinnacle's customer service options aren't the best. There's no live chat feature and we can't find a telephone number. If you run into any problems, you'll have to contact this brand by email...


Email: there is a built-in contact form found in the ‘contact us’ section or you can send a direct email to customerservice@pinnacle.com
