How to claim betting promo codes in Nova Scotia

Creating a sportsbook account in Nova Scotia

Before you can claim a promotion with a sportsbook, you must create an account with them. In order to do this, load their sign-up screen and fill in the required forms with the requested information. As part of this, you may be required to provide or refer to the following documentation:

  • Proof of name and age (e.g. personal identification, driving license, passport)

  • Proof of address (e.g. personal identification, financial statement, bill)

The sportsbook may also check that you’re physically located in Nova Scotia during the sign-up process via your mobile phone or IP address.

Claiming a sports betting promotion in Nova Scotia

Depending on the type of promotion you’re claiming, and which sportsbook is offering it, you will need to do certain things in order to ensure you get it:

Promo codes

If you’re claiming a welcome offer promo code, you may be required to enter the promo code when prompted while you’re completing the sign-up process. If the promotion is a deposit or wager promo code, enter the promo code where instructed on the sportsbook’s deposit screen or your bet slip, respectively.

Deposit bonuses

When claiming a deposit bonus, make sure you’re depositing at least the minimum amount as specified by the sportsbook and that you’re doing so with a payment method accepted for the promotion. If you’re making a first deposit with a sportsbook, you may be required to undergo verification checks to set up the payment method for your account.

Wagering bonuses

To claim a wager bonus, make sure to wager at least the minimum account as requested by the sportsbook and that your wager is on an event, market, and/or odds eligible for claiming the promotion.

Opt-in bonuses

Sportsbooks may occasionally offer bonuses that you must opt-in to receive. This may be via an account message or email sent to you, or on a specific page advertising the bonus.

Using a sports betting bonus in Nova Scotia

Once you’ve completed all the necessary steps, your bonus should then be credited to your account. Before you use it, make sure to check the T&Cs to confirm if there any rules or restrictions on doing so (e.g. a free bet you can only use on the NHL).

How to withdraw winnings from a betting promotion in Nova Scotia

If you have claimed a sports betting promotion and won money using it, you can then withdraw the winnings from your account (NB: unless there are wagering requirements as part of the bonus, check the T&Cs to confirm this).

To withdraw money from your betting account, head to the sportsbook’s cashier/account section and follow the instructions to place a withdrawal request. If you’re withdrawing from your account for the first time, you may be required to complete additional steps and verification checks to set up the payment method for your account.

How to bet in Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia became the last Canadian province to legalize single-game betting after the passing of Bill C-218 in February 2022. Proline sports betting products are provided by the Atlantic Lottery Corporation (ALC) to residents aged 19 years or older.

Aside from the sportsbooks listed above, residents can wager in-person at selected locations, such as convenience stores or gas stations. Winnings from sports betting are not taxed in Nova Scotia.

Popular sports teams in Nova Scotia

There are no sports teams based in Nova Scotia that compete in the major leagues, nor the CFL. Due to this, football fans in the province often follow the Montreal Alouettes, which is the nearest CFL team. As Canada’s sole representatives in the NBA and MLB respectively, sports fans in the province often support the Toronto Raptors and Toronto Blue Jays.

Due to their comparatively close proximity, teams from the northeast US also gather a degree of support in Nova Scotia. These include the New England Patriots, who play in the NFL.
