PointsBet is a unique sports betting platform that launched in New Jersey in 2019 in partnership with the Meadowlands Racetrack.
PointsBet Sportsbook offers all the traditional betting that other sportsbook have but it sets itself apart with a unique PointsBetting system.
PointsBetting is a high risk, high reward take on traditional betting. While traditional bets are simple win-or-lose equations, PointsBetting bases your win or loss on the margin of victory. If you bet $10 on the over in a Giants-Eagles game with a line of 50 and the final point total is 65, your bet amount is multiplied by the difference, in this case 15 points. So instead of winning $10, you would win $150. On the other hand, if the point total is 45, instead of losing $10 you would lose $50.
PointsBet offers new users a risk-free bet up to $500 to get started and a separate risk-free bet up to $500 to try out their PointsBetting system.
PointsBet Online Casino and Sportsbook
PointsBet has only been around for a couple of years and first launched in New Jersey in 2019. The company quickly signed former Jets and Patriots star cornerback Darelle Revis and former Philadelphia 76ers superstar Allen Iverson as brand ambassadors, and both are featured prominently on the platform, including an in-depth tutorial and FAQ called Revis Academy. Though the site can sometimes feel a bit cluttered, that is only because it offers so many unique features and promotions.
The site is still new, and its banking options are limited. Deposits and withdrawals are limited to Visa or MasterCard and e-check. Hopefully PointsBet will add more banking options in the future, like PayPal. The site does offer 24/7 customer support via live chat and email, though its phone support is limited to between 8 am and midnight.
Where the site really shines is the actual sports betting. PointsBet Sportsbook covers football, basketball, hockey, baseball, soccer, tennis, mixed martial arts, golf, boxing, Australian rules football, cricket, cycling, darts, motor racing, and rugby.
The site claims to offer the most NFL and NBA betting options in the world. Along with traditional moneylines, point spreads, and point total bets, users can find parlays, prop bets, futures bets, and in-play bets. Players can expect to find more than 100 betting options for any given NHL game and more than 200 options for any NBA game. The PointsBetting system takes wagers to a whole other level, allowing you to win or lose big based on how right — or wrong — your bet was.
Along with a large number of betting options, PointsBet offers many promotional bonuses. New users get a risk-free bet up to $500 on their first bet. Simply place your first bet and the site will refund your money in full if you lose, up to $500. New users also get a separate risk-free bet up to $500 on their first PointsBetting bet. If you lose, the money will be credited to your account within 24 hours.
You can also find extensive other promotions like parlay boosts, -105 point spreads, and extra bonuses for touchdown or home run totals.
PointsBet Casino Review
There are many sportsbooks in New Jersey and they mostly look and feel the same. This is not true of PointsBet. Though the site offers a great selection of sports and standard bets, the PointsBetting and live in-game betting are on another level. PointsBetting offers a unique, novel way to bet on sports that could certainly catch on at other sportsbooks and its live betting offerings are unparalleled. The site even offers exclusive prop bets you cannot find at other sportsbooks.
The site also offers a generous set of welcome bonuses and seasonal promotions. Users who place many bets can also take advantage of their loyalty program, which awards free bets. The program starts at a $100 bonus bet when you place 25 bets and increases to a $500 bonus bet when you place 100 bets.
