Overview of Pinnacle
Pinnacle has no signup bonuses and few promotions, yet is still arguably the best sportsbook for sharp players. How? They offer the best odds and lowest juice, have high betting limits on myriad sports, and allow substantial withdrawals.
That makes Pinnacle Sportsbook the Ferrari of the sports-betting industry: you’re going to pay full price to get started, but you’re going to be satisfied and electrified once you do.
That’s not a typo. Pinnacle does not offer any sort of incentives. No sign-up bonuses, no promotions. Their product stands for itself. If you are looking for get rich quick ideas, turn to a different site. However, they provide value with every wager you make, and a long-term savings even over sites that offer 50% or 100% one-time bonuses.
Starting an account at Pinnacle is pretty easy. Chose what currency you prefer, and select from a large array of options including credit cards, debit cards, transfers, and bank wires.
Minimum deposits start at $10 and, because this is a book that has a lot of professional players, the maximums are high.
Signing up is straightforward and you can be wagering in minutes.
With same-day payouts offered using a variety of different methods, Pinnacle is very reliable when it comes to getting customers cash. Depending upon the currency you bet with, most withdrawals have a small fee, but it can be as little as $10. Maximum payouts are larger than many sites, and Pinnacle is very reliable and safe when it comes to money transfers.
The reason to bet at Pinnacle is very straightforward. They have the highest limits, the greatest selection, and the best odds. For serious players, those are three areas you look for, and they are at the top of the industry in each of them. This offsets the lack of promotions particularly for professionals who are shunned at other sites and frequently dismissed after a few big wins.
When it comes to the betting menu, while in-game wagering tends to focus on basketball, baseball, and soccer, the variety of match odds, props and futures is staggering.
[Pinnacle has] the highest limits, the greatest selection, and the best odds. For serious players, those are three areas you look for.
In addition to the mainstream sports you would expect, they are the industry leader on eSports, treating them on the same playing field as soccer and hoops, with a wide spectrum of handicaps, moneylines, and games.
Finally, any site that reduces vig is serious, and when you do it on a huge percentage of your action, that is a major statement. Expect -105 more frequently than -110 or the ghastly -115 or -120 seen with some frequency elsewhere. Save with every pick you make on the takeout.
That is really the best long-term promo you can possibly hope for.
On the World Cup, Pinnacle accepted bets up to $1 million. They accept bets up to $30,000 on top soccer leagues, and $10,000 on the NFL.
For the little guys, you can play for a minimum of $1. If you are an arbitrage player (who shops for odds at various books and takes advantage of variations in the market) Pinnacle is one of the few books that welcomes you.
Live Betting and Mobile Betting
Nice cars not only have good horsepower, but other amenities like leather seats, power steering, and a sporty sunroof. While Pinnacle is known for excellent lines and limits, they also offer an easy-to-use live-wagering platform, a very nice mobile product that is simple to navigate, and quality articles about betting.
It is refreshing when a site publishes articles that are meant to inform bettors and bring up interesting angles as opposed to just fluff. Pinnacle makes their money on volume, and therefore whether people are betting the sharp side or not, they try to provide information that allows account holders to learn and bet intelligently in whatever way they prefer.
Additional Offerings: Racebook & Casino
While Pinnacle discontinued their racebook a few years ago, by focusing on sports they have expanded their menu on niche events particularly with the emphasis on eSports.
They have a casino with standard offerings and live dealer play available on the most popular card games. While the casino does not set itself apart from competitors like the sportsbook, it is serviceable, fun, and a nice option for people looking to get away from sports for a few minutes.
Unlike most all sites, there is no live chat support at Pinnacle and minimal phone support. Almost all support is via email.
On one hand, this seems like a negative, but on the other hand, if your car never breaks, you rarely need to take it into the shop.
Moreover, the customer service reps respond promptly to inquiries, and most questions can be answered by the laundry list of information that is available on the site.
