STX Referral Code

There is currently no STX referral code available in Ontario as the brand is still not live in the province. A referral code could exist in the future when the site launches, pending AGCO license approval. Referral codes are generally used for marketing purposes and/or activation.

The referral code will likely come in the form of a short sequence of letters and numbers, which users must enter when registering or making a deposit. Any STX referral code should have a number of terms and conditions that apply to it, so be sure to read through them.

What Is the STX Referral Code?

There is no STX code available at the moment as the brand is still in the process of license approval in Ontario. We do, however, expect a code to become available when the sportsbook launches in the province.

Who Can Claim or Use the STX Referral Code?

To use the code, users will likely need to be over the age of 19 and be physically located within the province of Ontario. Users may need to verify their identity by providing a valid government ID and a selfie.

Where Will I Need to Apply the STX Code?

If an STX code does become available in Ontario, it’s not clear where users would need to apply it as of yet. The most common place to enter a referral code is when registering for a new account. Users could also apply a code when making their first deposit.

*Always read through the terms and conditions of a code before attempting to apply.

STX Sportsbook Key Features

What makes STX different from other sports betting sites in the province is the trading exchange-like structure. At the sportsbook, users will be able to buy or sell on the outcome of sporting events rather than betting against the site. So STX won’t be taking the other side of its traders’ bets, but all trades should be 100% collateralized to ensure all users get paid in full.

Some of the other key features of the site that could be big selling points include:

Live Trading

We expect bettors to have the option of trading sports outcomes live while a sporting event is already in progress. The market should flux in real-time, giving users the chance to make up for the second trade. Live trading could be available for a vast majority of sports.

Loads of Sports Markets

While the brand has not yet disclosed a full list of sports which will be offered at the exchange, we do expect a solid range. Popular Canadian and American leagues like the NFL, NHL, MLB, CFL, MLS and NBA should be featured primarily. The site may also offer major international sports like Soccer, Rugby, Cricket and Tennis.


An STX app should be available to users when the brand launches in Ontario. The app will likely be available on both iOS and Android devices. To download the app, you should be able to use Google Play or Apple Store, respectively, or make a direct download from the operator’s website.

We anticipate the STX app to have all the same great functionalities as when betting using the website. This should include access to any referral codes, live trading, quick deposits/withdrawals and customer support. If you’d like to check out a test version of the app, you can find it available for download on iOS on the operator’s website right now.

Keep in mind that to use the STX app, you will need to switch on location settings. This is to ensure that you are betting from within Ontario provincial boundaries.

STX Ontario License and Security

STX Ontario has still not been approved for legal igaming in the province by the AGCO. The brand is, however, in the process of acquiring a licence with both AGCO and iGaming Ontario.

In terms of security, we expect both the site and app to use end-to-end encryption to ensure the safety of personal data. The site is currently also certified by a fully independent and accredited testing laboratory, Gamelabs.

STX Deposits & Withdrawals

Our STX review wouldn’t be complete without a look at the available payment options at the sportsbook. While the brand hasn’t disclosed which payment options will be available, some of the most common payment methods in Ontario are:

Deposit methodFeeProcess TimeMinimum Deposit
Credit cardsN/AN/A
Prepaid cardsN/AN/A
Online Banking (Interac)N/AN/A
Online WalletsN/AN/A

You can expect a list of payment methods to be released closer to the launch of the sportsbook. We don’t expect there to be any charges applied to both deposits and withdrawals on the side of the operator.

A fee could, however, be incurred by your payment provider. Deposit methods should be instant for the most part, but withdrawals could take a few days to a week to process. Minimum and maximum deposit and withdrawal limits may apply.

STX Review- Customer Service

We expect that the brand provides customer support using multiple channels of communication. Likely methods of contacting support include email, telephone and live chat.

This STX review anticipates that support will be available round the clock in both English and French. If you have a question for STX right now, you can send in inquiries to [email protected].

STX Review Conclusion

Our STX review concludes that the brand will be unique within the Ontario sports betting market. As a trading exchange, the site will allow traders to bet against each other using a stock market-like structure rather than make bets against the sportsbook.

We don’t yet have details as to what sports will be available, but you can expect all major Canadian leagues. Live trading is also expected for trading on games in progress.

One of the main selling points of the operator is the STX app which should be available to download on both iOS and Android when the site goes live. To be the first to know what’s coming next for STX and be a part of the Beta Program, sign up on the operator’s website now for email notifications.
