PointsBet arrived on the sports betting scene in January 2019 when it launched in New Jersey. But it didn't stop there, quickly adding licenses for online sportsbooks in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Iowa, Colorado, West Virginia, Virginia, New York, and most recently, Pennsylvania. PointsBet focuses all its time and energy on its sportsbook, though PointsBet Michigan recently dipped its toes into the casino space.
PointsBet users will immediately notice a local flare to the sportsbook. PointsBet does a great jump of pumping local markets, featuring those teams on the front of its home page, boosting local teams' odds, or featuring those teams' games on the left rail of the available markets. PointsBet has a commitment to the state-specific teams, going so far as using former professional athletes from the state as spokespersons.
PointsBet currently has two promotions running for new users. The first is a 100% deposit match up to $250, meaning players can deposit up to $250 and receive that same amount back in the form of risk-free bets.
The second promotion for first-time users is five risk-free bets up to $100 each in fixed betting. If players lose their first fixed bet, they will receive a PointsBet free bet equal to the amount wagered and lost. If users win those first bets, no risk-free bets will be rewarded. It's worth noting that all risk-free bets may only be used on fixed betting markets, though they may be split up into multiple risk-free bets to be used on different games or events. When you compare this offer to an offer like the Unibet promo code, you will see it is very generous.
PointsBet does not have a loyalty program but does offer benefits to its members in the form of promotions and rewards. In addition to daily promotions such as odds boosts and parlay boosters, members receive points with every bet they place that can be redeemed for free bets.
Members receive 1 point for every $5 fixed odds bet, 1 reward point for a $1 parlay bet, and 1 reward point for every dollar won or lost through PointsBetting. Members can also receive 100 points for a $100 parlay, 200 points for a $200 fixed bet, 300 points for a $300 PointsBetting win, 300 points for a $300 in-play bet, and 100 points for a $100 in-play parlay. Members can then redeem their points for free bets. Every 1000 points earned equals $10 in free bets.
PointsBet offers free bets to its customers via a range of different mechanisms. It might be a refund after your initial wager loses or free bet credit as part of a match deposit bonus offer. You can also get free bets if one leg of a parlay lets you down. PointsBet also offers interesting bonuses on an ongoing basis. One example was UFC Double Your Money, whereby players were given a 100% profit boost plus 100 loyalty points.
Every day, Top college and pro sports betting odds and picks can be accessed and made at PointsBet.
