The mobile sportsbook operator, theScore Bet, has chosen to stop business in the United States and focus on the commercial sector in the Canadian province of Ontario. The deadline for US participants to settle their accounts is July 1, 2022.
Ontario’s admission into the sports betting industry earlier this spring prompted the business to shift its emphasis to Canada.
On April 4, the commercial market in Ontario went online, making it the first Canadian province to provide iGaming to its citizens. Local lotteries have long dominated the gaming industry in Canada.
Ontario is expected to grow into one of the top iGaming markets in North America.
Customers will not be able to make deposits after June 15, when the mobile sportsbook stops accepting US wagers. Only withdrawals from client accounts will be accessible from that point until the July 1 deadline.
Checks will be mailed to those who do not withdraw their winnings by the deadline. These will be sent to the address on file with the sportsbook for the registered account user.
Bets on the NBA and NHL playoffs, as well as events that will end on or before the July 1 deadline, will remain active and settle according to standard process.
Players who have open wagers on future events that will end after the deadline will be contacted by theScore Bet and given information on how the bets will be settled.
Players can still change their contact information on theScore Bet by contacting the sportsbook’s customer service team.
Barstool Sportsbook, as well as theScore Bet, are owned and operated by Penn National Gaming. Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, and New Jersey are among the 12 states where Barstool Sportsbook is available. The company’s iCasino is active in New Jersey and three additional US states.
