TheScore Bet Canada announced it is updating its sports betting house rules.

The Canada online sportsbook sent an email to all subscribers:

“We are writing to inform you that we have made updates to our Sports Betting House Rules that will go into effect on Tuesday, July 19, 2022, at 12:00 am ET.

These updates include revised settlement rules for baseball (including changes to “listed starting pitchers” rules), tennis and in situations where players withdraw from sporting events, amongst other updates.”

If theScore Bet customers in Ontario have questions, they are welcome to contact theScore’s customer support team at 1-855-550-1238 or email them to [email protected].

100% focus on Ontario sports betting

The company’s strategy is laser-focused on Ontario.

Despite growing out of a Canadian-born sports media brand, theScore Bet first hit the market in the US in 2019. In 2021, its parent, Score Gaming and Media, was acquired by Penn National Gaming, which also owns Barstool Sports.

Penn was primarily interested in purchasing theScore Bet app, which had gained popularity since launch, maintaining a small yet stubborn presence in the US. It was particularly intriguing, though, for its Canadian connection. Especially once the opportunity in Ontario opportunity became apparent.

These days, however, the operator is only available in Canada after announcing it would shutter its US operations. As of July 1, theScore Bet no longer takes bets in Colorado, Indiana, Iowa and New Jersey, the four states they were operational.

Going forward, Penn’s US subsidiary Barstool Sportsbook will focus on the US market, while theScore Bet serves the Great White North. The decision could prove beneficial as theScore Bet has made progress in building its reputation in Ontario over the years.

And, Barstool is already live in 12 US states, including the four theScore Bet broke up with.

Giving Ontario sports bettors what they want

With deep sports media experience, theScore Bet strives to give players the details they need to place online sports bets.

Ontario’s players can bet on everything from the Super Bowl to a regular-season NHL game and a lot in between. The reliable platform and its sleek design and functionality certainly can’t hurt.

And, choice-wise, there’s sure to be something to keep every customer engaged, whether that’s moneyline bets, totals, point spread, props, parlays or even round robins.
