PointsBet IN Sports Review

by Gambling.com™

In January 2020, the Indiana Gaming Commission (IGC), issued a license to PointsBet to legally operate in the state of Indiana.

In the Hoosier State, online sportsbooks must have a retail “land” partner. Fortunately, brick-and-mortar casinos can have up to three “skins,” meaning they can be connected to up to three individually branded websites/apps. PointsBet has a partnership with Penn National Gaming, which operates two casinos in Indiana: Ameristar East Chicago and Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg.

With that, let’s look at what PointsBet has to offer.

PointsBet IN Pros & Cons

Highly reputable company
Incredible interface

PointsBet IN Welcome Bonus

PointsBet IN offers a wonderful welcome offer. For new users, you will have four risk-free bets of up to $1,000 total. This is broken down into two different bet types: Standard fixed and PointsBetting.

First, if you deposit and wager $250 and bet on a fixed bet and lose, you will get $250 back in the form of a free bet. You will get two of these. The other two are the same, but geared toward the PointsBetting, which is a signature bet type that is exclusive to PointsBet. That may be confusing now, but we will dive deeper into that.

Registration at PointsBet IN

What’s nice about the registration process at PointsBet IN is that it is just two steps.

  1. Promo code (which is already filled in), name and email.
  2. Salutation, date of birth, phone number, last four of your social security number, address, username, password and agree to the terms of service.

PointsBet IN Desktop/Mobile Experience

PointsBet IN is available on desktop, mobile web browsing and also for iOS and Android. Starting at the top of the page, there is a collapsible menu in the upper-left-hand corner of the page. Here, there are links to everything: Home, Promos, In Play, Quick Parlay, all of the sports, and plenty of other betting related content.

Also at the top of the page you will find the login/registration buttons as well as the betslip, which is clickable. Here, after clicking or selecting a bet, the betslip will appear with your bet and your wager.

Below this, you’ll find a carousel of ads for the welcome offer and other promotions. As you continue down on the default home page, you’ll find the featured bets as well as the in-play or “live” bets.

For the mobile app, it’s quite the same, with the only exception being the first few items in the drop-down menu on the desktop version being buttons at the bottom of the app, including a menu button which replicates what you see on desktop.

It’s vital that online sportsbooks try to keep the same feel from platform-to-platform and PointsBet IN has done exactly that.

PointsBet IN Betting Odds

Overall, in comparing PointsBet IN to other popular sportsbooks that can be found in Indiana, the odds were relatively the same, though it seemed like PointsBet IN gives better odds to underdogs and slightly worse odds for favorites compared to others. There were also very minor discrepancies when it came to spreads, but overall, everything balanced well and nothing was overtly outrageous.

PointsBet IN Betting Features

There are plenty of betting features at PointsBet IN, which makes the online sportsbook fun to play. These include PointsBetting, Live Betting, Cash Out, Boosters and Quick Parlay.

  • Live Betting: This allows users to bet on games/contests that are actively in progress. The odds update as the event progresses.
  • Cash Out: This allows for players to “cash out” of a bet before the event is decided. The amount of money returned to the player will directly correlate to their original bet and how the participant in which they wagered on is performing at the time of cashing out.
  • Boosters: Each day there will be different booster odd sets, ranging among the different sports offered at PointsBet. Here, there will be an assortment of multiple leg bets that have had the odds artificially boosted by PointsBet.
  • Quick Parlay: This is a page in which you can select whatever sport(s) you wish and quickly choose potential options. From here, they will quickly group together. This is a shortcut rather than going through each sports menu and finding your selections for a parlay.
  • PointsBetting: The best way to explain PointsBetting is through examples. For the NBA, this is done through total points. For example, if the total on a game is $200 and you bet the over, you will earn your wager multiplied by the amount of points in which it goes over. So, at 200, if the final total is 250 and you wagered $1, you will receive $50. Conversely, if it drops below the 200 to 180, you will lose that $1 multiplied by 20, resulting in a $20 loss.

PointsBet IN Current Promotions

  • UEFA Early Payout: If your club leads by 2 goals at any time during a contest, you will be granted your wager up to $100 on all pre-game bets
  • Make it Rain: On the selected college basketball game of the day, player will receive $3 for every three-point shot made by the team in which was wagered on with a minimum of a $50 spread bet
  • 3rd Period Insurance: If you bet on the selected NHL game of the day and your team is winning after the second period, but loses in the third period, you will get up to $50 back

These are a few examples of the promotions, and there are plenty more. Keep an eye on the promotions page to never miss out.

PointsBet IN Customer Support

PointsBet has three forms of customer support:

  1. A “Help” page. This is found at the bottom of the PointsBet page. This answers pretty much every question you’d ever have
  2. Email
  3. Live chat: Available 24/7

PointsBet IN Responsible Gambling Features

The Responsible Gaming page can be found via a link at the bottom of the home page. Here, there are links and phone numbers for organizations that specialize in helping those with a gambling problem.

Players can also set limits on deposits, spending and session times as well as self-exclude themselves from the platform. This page also features signs to look for if you’re worried you may have a problem and ways to prevent children from accessing the platform.

Our Verdict

PointsBet is, in every sense of the word, fantastic. There’s really not much to complain about here. PointsBet makes information on PointsBetting readily available. This is important to understand because it can be costly if it is a loss.

Other than that, this Indiana online sportsbook has everything you’d want and more, including innovation and numerous promotional offerings.
