Bookie Trust and Web Ranking

Of course we also take into account externally verifiable ranking factors. We can take a decent amount of information about this sportsbook from publicly available information on the internet.
The loading time for this site is 0.45 seconds, which a very quick loading time. That’s worked out via a high speed internet connection – your load time will most probably be higher.
Now we should look at when the domain name expires. Obviously, when you’re putting your trust in a bookie, a domain that’s set to expire quite soon isn’t a great sign. In the case of Pinnacle it expires on 13th Mar 2018, which is in 131 days time. That seems pretty short – it will expire in less than a year.
What’s the Alexa rank? Well, it’s produced by Alexa who are owned by Amazon and gives you an idea of a website’s global traffic. The lower the rank, the more traffic the site gets. So how does Pinnacle fare? Its Alexa rank is 16,850 which is quite low – Pinnacle is a highly visited site and that’s a good sign.
In judging a bookie’s trustworthiness, it’s also a good idea to look at a domain’s authority. There are a few services that provide stats related to domain authority, and we use several of them to put together a custom score, out of 100. Pinnacle scores 63 which is is an extremely high authority score indeed – this has to be one of the most linked-to bookies on this site.
Having looked at all these stats and put them into a custom algorithm – along with others not mentioned here – we can give Pinnacle an overall web trust rank of 65.80/100. It sounds like an average rating – but it’s actually very high for a web rank and that means this is one of the most trusted domains on BML.
We have given Pinnacle a player experience rating of Above Average. This indicates that this bookmaker is generally well-liked by players .
The Bottom Line
Pinnacle (formerly Pinnacle Sports) is possibly the best online bookmaker in the world, welcoming winners and taking large bets from professionals and arbers alike. But while players worldwide can’t seem to do without Pinnacle’s odds, we wouldn’t be doing our job at Bookmaker List if we didn’t mention the company’s inability to obtain a license in the UK (and not for lack of trying) and the (former?) exposure to the US market, where Pinnacle agents continued to collect bets through illegal gambling networks long after the sportsbook claimed to have left the US market following the passage of the UIGEA. That’s the BML bottom line, but we’ve also gathered a lot of stats on Pinnacle and can use those to create an overall rating. We call this the BML Rank and it is a very accurate guideline to the quality of a boomaker. It takes into account everything from their web rank, to the number of deposit methods they have, to their player experience rating. Pinnacle’s BML Rank is 75.99 which is an excellent rating. This is a top bookmaker.
