Rivalry overview



Rivalry has made a name for itself as one of the best eSports betting sites in Canada, with one of the biggest selections of games and lines you can wager on. And while they are positioned as an eSports dedicated betting site, Rivalry does also feature a reasonable selection of sports markets and even a cool retro style online casino.

Overall, Rivalry is a fantastic choice for bettors looking to dive into the world of eSports, as you can bet on a huge number of markets and enjoy watching live directly on the betting site. The sports betting is a bit disappointing, and there are plenty of better options in Ontario, but that has never been Rivalry's focus. What they do offer is delivered exceptionally well, and we expect them to grow in popularity by adding more sports and continuing to have one of the strongest eSports offerings in the country.

Rivalry Canada Review in a Minute

Our Pick for eSports
AGCO licence number: OPIG1237762

Rivalry is one of Canada's premier eSports betting sites, and credit where credit is due - they are a top notch site if you want to get involved wagering on the eSports craze that has come to Canada.

Our highlights when using Rivalry were definitely around the eSports betting, with same game combos on popular titles, and live streaming all eSports events. After testing out the sports betting, we can say that if you're only looking to casually wager on more traditional bet types and popular sports, Rivalry will be fine, but this is clearly not their focus, and it left us wanting more.

Rivalry Review

Rivalry Betting Variety - 6/10

Rivalry is a betting site of highs and lows when it comes to betting variety. They easily have one of the best eSports selections we've seen, but on the flip side only offer a limited number of popular sports to wager on, and the casino is more of a token gesture at this stage.

Rivalry Mobile Experience 7/10

The sleek design of the Rivalry betting site transfers well into mobile, with our main frustration being they only offer an iOS app. While the mobile site is still easy to navigate and Android users won't have any trouble placing the bets and enjoying all of the features, it would be a big upgrade to have the app on Android as well.

Rivalry Payment Options 8/10

Rivalry has a pretty solid selection of payment methods that most bettors can take advantage of, including most of the usual suspects like MuchBetter and Skrill. We would love to see interac and iDebit join the list, but if you want to use some pretty niche options and crypto you can do that too.

Rivalry's Betting Experience 8/10

The actual betting experience with Rivalry is quite good overall, as the site looks great, runs well, and has a lot of user friendly little features that make finding and seeing games and odds easy. While we were disappointed with the sports and casino, it's difficult to mark down too much on the experience since the eSports makes up for it, and we talked about the lack of variety above.

Rivaly Support 8/10

Rivalry ticks all the boxes when it comes to support options, offering the full range of email, live chat, and a robust FAQ. We're only marking down because they don't provide a customer support number, which we think is still important.

Rivalry Summary 7/10

If you are keen to start betting on eSports then we highly recommend Rivalry, since they are easily one of the best. Sadly we can't quite say the same about the sports betting given there just aren't enough sports or markets to compete with some of the other sport focused sites in the province.
