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 -2 days time. That seems 0-365 pretty short – it will expire in less than a year 366-730 actually not that long – it’ll be expiring in less than 2 years time 731-1460 like a fair amount of time, although we’d prefer it to be a little longer 1461-2920 a long time off and is reassuring 2921-99999 a very long way off and that’s a good sign .
What’s the Alexa rank? Well, it’s produced by Alexa who are owned by Amazon and is a numeric ranking of a website’s global popularity. The lower the rank, the more popular the site. So how does Pinnacle fare? Its Alexa rank is 20,547 which is quite low – Pinnacle is a popular site and that’s a good sign.

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 loads of stats on Pinnacle and we put those together to produce an overall rating. We call this the BML Rank and it produces a very accurate guideline to the quality of a boomaker. It takes into account everything from their web popularity, to how many payment methods they have, to their player experience rating. Pinnacle’s BML Rank is 75.62 which is an excellent rating. This is a top bookmaker.
