The popular online sports betting website, PinnacleSports.com, has been out of commission over the last 12 hours, but have no fear.

The Curacao-based wagering firm claims to be having “power outages”. 

We are currently experiencing problems with our electricity provider. Our IT Department is consulting with our provider to correct the problem.

When this type of situation occurs, we understand your frustration. We too are frustrated since the business of Pinnacle Sports is to take wagers. This type of situation is certainly not in the best interest of our clients, or Pinnacle Sports.

Please know that we are doing everything we can to get the problem corrected. Unfortunately, when it is a third party problem, we have very little control over the time required to correct the problem.

Pinnacle Sports services the professional sports bettor and has gone down at a crucial time, ahead of the start of the NHL Playoffs. 

While some customers were able to access during the morning hours, the site continues to be down for the vast majority.
