Doug Hirdle

Hey all! My name is Doug Hirdle, and I am the main author at Betting.ca. As a huge sports fan, for years I have thought about running a website that’s going to provide people with the latest news from the world of sports. However, watching sports is not my only passion, as I also love betting on them. That’s why I created a website called Betting.ca and began writing reviews of top Canadian sports betting operators and casino sites, while also writing some sports news on the side. My love affair with betting began around a decade ago when I learned that I could place real-money wagers over the internet. Even though my first wager was unsuccessful, I was still in awe of the wide range of possibilities that online sports betting brings to the table. The fact that I can place bets while the match is still taking place and even watch some of the games I wagered on made online sportsbooks my primary tool for gambling. Years have passed and I started betting on a daily basis, occasionally switching from one site to another in search of better odds, more rewarding bonuses, and a larger selection of betting markets. Eventually, I started making a lot of profit from my sports betting ventures but I discovered that I have also developed another skill — the ability to recognize quality sportsbooks and casino sites. Many people don’t realize this, but playing on a good sportsbook site increases your chances of winning, while also giving you a better overall gambling experience. There are hundreds of sportsbooks on the web, so picking the right one is not easy, especially if you’re a beginner. I had to learn that the hard way but you don’t have to if you stick to Betting.ca. Since I’m a Canadian resident, the betting sites I write about are primarily designed for Canadian players. Nevertheless, these sportsbooks usually operate on an international level, so even if you are not from Canada, the chances are that you will be allowed to create an account and play there. Sports betting is my passion, so that’s what Betting.ca is mostly about. However, I understand that not all online gamblers look to wager on sports. There are plenty of those who enjoy casino games like video slots, roulette, blackjack, poker, and others. That’s why a significant portion of my website also consists of reviews about top casino sites for Canadian players. On Betting.ca, you will be able to find only the best and most trusted online gambling platforms. How do I know which Canadian betting operators are good? Well, my experience has taught me what to look for when browsing through these websites. Essentially, I look at things like licensing and safety, bonuses for Canadian players, the range of sports and betting markets, available betting features, mobile compatibility, and the quality of payment methods. If all these aspects meet my quality standards, I can recommend a betting site to my readers and give it a corresponding rating. The most important thing for me is that a given gambling site is safe and legal for Canadians. A betting site must have a proper licence and it must employ state-of-the-art security systems in order to protect its customers. Since my website focuses on the Canadian market, I have also prepared a guide for each Canadian province and territory. Every sports punter is different and has their own preferences when it comes to sports markets. I personally like betting on soccer, basketball, and ice hockey, so those are the three sports I focus on the most when picking a sportsbook. However, I understand that a lot of you would like to place wagers on some other sports, which is why I created separate pages where I talk about American football, baseball, tennis, boxing, cricket, golf, horse racing, and more. Each of these pages includes a guide that will teach you how to bet on these sports and tell you what sort of odds and betting markets you can expect. Over the last ten years, I also learned that sports betting promotions are very important. They give you a chance to take advantage of free bets and other bonuses that enlarge your balance and give you better chances of making a profit. Sportsbook promotions are also an ideal way to start betting without risking your own money and test the betting site out before fully devoting yourself to it. Since many people choose sportsbooks based on the quality of their promotions, I have written a guide that will teach you how to find the best free bets and use them. One thing that always frustrated me about gambling sites is the transactions. Sometimes I would run into a seemingly quality sportsbook, only to realize that its banking methods are rather inconvenient and slow. Having reliable and fast-working banking methods is one of the most important things you need to think about when choosing a betting site. Again, I had to learn this the hard way, but now I have the knowledge and experience you can benefit from — there’s no need to repeat my mistakes. The betting sites I recommend have the best and quickest payment options for online gambling. These include credit cards, e-wallets, and cryptocurrencies. I also made sure to throw in some sites that allow you to deposit and withdraw money using Canadian-based payment services like iDebit and Interac. Right now, I consider myself competent enough to suggest betting platforms to others. Of course, everything you read about on Betting.ca should be taken with a grain of salt. These are just my personal suggestions and guides, so I advise you to always do your own research and find a betting site that meets all of your needs. Even with a decade-long experience in online gambling, I am still learning a lot of new things. The online gambling landscape is continually changing, and I work hard to keep up with the latest developments. As new quality gambling platforms appear on my radar, I will make sure to check them out and provide you with a comprehensive review. If you have any questions regarding online gambling, feel free to contact me — I will be more than glad to help you out. One last thing, always remember to gamble responsibly!
