Ice Hockey is played mostly in North America, Europe, Scandinavia and Russia, and if you are keen on betting at our sportsbook there are plenty of local and overseas leagues and tournaments to put money on. The Russian Kontinental League, Switzerland’s National League, the Swedish Hockey League, the British Elite League, the Slovenian Hockey League and the Ukrainian Hockey League are all featured and major international tournaments open for betting include the World Cup and the World Championships.
For most Canadian sports betting enthusiasts, the NHL is the league of choice. The National Hockey League (NHL) is the largest and most prestigious in the world, and one that attracts the most bets. Originally formed in Canada, the NHL consists of 31 teams, 24 of which are based in the US, and just 7 in Canada. The NHL season kicks off in October each year, and runs to June. The top teams at the end of the season then compete in the playoffs for a chance to win the Championship, and lift the Stanley Cup.
