If you are new to Pinnacle Sports, or online betting, the following instructions will help guide you through the simple process of placing your first bet.
Accessing your Pinnacle Sports account
To begin with you need to be a member of Pinnacle Sports to place a bet. So open an account now if you are not a member yet. You will need your password along with the unique Client ID (which was generated on successful completion of the account opening process) for successful log-in to your Pinnacle Sports account.
Choosing from the Betting Menu
Once you have successfully logged-in, you will automatically be taken to the Betting Menu. In the top right-hand corner of your screen you will see your balance. If this is zero you will need to fund your account. Once you have funds in your account you can select a bet. The Betting Menu is organized into helpful categories, find the category that matches the bet you want to place. As an example if you wanted to bet on the English Premier League, look under the Soccer category, for England and click the plus icon and then England - Premier League.
Once you have clicked on England – Premier League you will see the following page. Note you can change the format of your odds using the drop-down menu at the top left of the page and also refresh the odds at any point by using the Update Odds button. Pinnacle Sports offer a large selection of bet options - Straight Bet, Buy Points, Parlays/Accumulators and Teasers.
On the bet page you will see the Maximum Bet amount for each available bet type displayed at the top of the columns of odds. Individual games may have a limit that is actually lower than the market limit – indicated by a red circle - or higher - indicated by a blue circle. By hovering over the circles, you will see a small floating orange box displaying the applicable limit amount. Note limits generally increase towards the start of the event.
Placing Your Bets
When you have selected the bet you want to make enter the amount in the white rectangular box, then select the green Submit Bets button. Note you can make more than one bet at a time.
Checking Your Bets
Having submitted your bet, to enable you to check you have made the right selection, you will see a confirmation page which will present the details of the bet(s) you are about to place. Check that the details are correct and then click Confirm Bets.
If the bet is accepted, you will see a message saying Bet Accepted and a Ticket Number, as well as your new available balance. Your bet may not be accepted if you do not have sufficient funds, or the odds have changed during the bet process. You can review all your bets by going to My Account available on every page in the main and right hand navigation menus.
