If there is a bookmaker that is completely perfect in terms of everything that the punters expect of them, it is this sportsbook. New Zealand players can have access to the low margins of this sportsbook meaning that the bettors get to go home richer than their colleagues from the other bookmakers.

Promos and bonuses

It is unfortunate that this bookmaker does not offer its new customers any sort of bonuses. But instead, it offers its customers very good betting lines. This means that there is no need for the awarding of the bonuses.

Pinnacle's betting market and bet margins

There are over 80 markets for the punters to choose from in this sportsbook. The sports events or other events that they can choose from include but not limited to the following: American Football, Soccer, Rugby league, rugby union, Badminton, Baseball, Basketball, Cricket, Golf, volleyball, Formula 1, eSports, Mixed Martial Arts, Aussie Rules to name but a few.

The margins for each of the above events might tend to vary from one game to another though the deviation between the games with the highest margins and those events with the lowest margins is not really that big. The average from the margin would then fall between 4.2% and 4.5%. The end results seem to favour many bettors in one way or another and thus the resurgence of many new customers registering their selves with this gambling operator.

Live and mobile betting

Whoever said that these two features are not available in Pinnacle bookmaker were very wrong. This is because any punter can still bet on their favourite events despite kicking off earlier than their had thought off, or had planned to place their bets after following the outcome of those events for quite a while. The mentioned scenario covers the live betting features in clear details.

Mobile betting is possible in two ways. One way is by downloading the Pinnacle mobile app to the supported mobile devices such as iPhones, iPads, Tablets, and Android Phones. Then there is the second way of placing bets using the mobile phones. This involves the bettors visiting the mobile version website of the bookmaker using their phones and they can be assured of the same experience as to those that the Pinnacle mobile app users get.

Payment options

What bolstered the ratings of this bookmaker are the positive remarks that they have been obtaining from the customers that are directly related to the payment options. There are many methods of payment that are supported here and that are common in the world. Also, there is a large list of accepted currencies in the Pinnacle sportsbook. To begin with, the accepted currencies are the US Dollars, British Pounds, Euros, Canadian Dollars, Polish Zloty, Danish Krona, Australian Dollar, China Yuan Renminbi, Hong Kong dollars, Japanese Yen, Czech Republic Koruna, Swedish Kroner, South Korean Won, Taiwan Dollars, Thailand Baht, Mexican Peso, Malaysia Ringgit, Russian Rubbles and a few more.

The payment methods’ list is long too and includes the following options Ukash, Skrill, Visa Card, MasterCard, Maestro, Neteller, Bank Transfer, Webmoney, sofort, iDebit, ClickandBuy, EntroPay, Przelewy24, and Poli internet banking.

There are limits that have been set to govern the maximum and minimum amount to be deposited or withdrawn by the punter from their Pinnacle accounts using their favourite payment options. As for the Bank wire transfer, the minimum amount that the bettor can deposit using this €10 while there are no limits to the maximum amount to withdrawn or deposited using this option. There is no minimum amount to be withdrawn using Bank Transfer.
The other options have minimum and the maximum amount to be deposited or withdrawn but are not the same as far as maximum limits are concerned. However, they all have the same minimum allowed deposit whereby that value is €5.
While all of the options listed here have the same transaction processing time regardless of the bettors’ requests, the Bank Transfer option is the only option that takes much time to do that compared to the others. In essence, a Bank transfer customer will receive his or her funds in the account in the next 1 to 3 days after that customer has initiated the request.

Safety and security

These two things have been combined in this bookmaker to reinforce the bettors’ privacy. A technology called SSL technology was incorporated into the bookmaker’s system by Network Solution (NS), a firm that provides online security to its clients. The encryption that takes place here ensures that the hackers find it difficult to sniff the data that is being transferred to and from the innocent bettor’s betting accounts.

Pinnacle's overview

The bookmaker was founded in 1998. In fact, it is one of the oldest bookmakers in the world that seems to be young in the gambling market yet it has been in this field for over 2 decades. And because of that, it has been able to establish its roots in over 200 countries from all over the world.

Though this gambling site is very famous and has over 10 million registered customers in its database, still there are some countries that said NO to its services. They are not many but some of them could have really had an impact on the customer count in the database had it been allowed in those countries. These countries are the likes of the United States, Germany, Turkey, Poland, the United Kingdom, France, Denmark, Poland, and Ireland.
Nevertheless, the bookmaker has a license to run its business from the United Kingdom Gambling Commission and another license from the government of the Netherlands Antilles.

Customer service

Customers or bettors can get in touch with Pinnacle staff members by sending an email to them or by chatting with them through the live chat feature on the Pinnacle website. If that does not work for them, they can also fill in an online form and send it to them. The last option is to use the FAQ section to get some answers to their problems.
