Hailing from Australia, PointsBet has come to the United States and is offered in New Jersey now. Partnering with the Meadowlands Racetrack, PointsBet came the United States in January 2019 offering sports betting of course, but with its own unique twist (more on that later).
Coming to the Garden State — which many could call the Las Vegas of the East — sportsbooks must be licensed and are regulated by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. With this, there are numerous strict guidelines that sportsbooks must adhere to, as well as partner with a brick-and-mortar facility.
Obviously, PointsBet has done both, which further proves its worth and merit in the sports betting industry. Below, we will take a look at the brand, as well as the unique offering PointsBet has.
To simply put it, PointsBet is an online sportsbook through and through. PointsBet does not offer any form of online casino, live dealer games or online poker. PointsBet in the United States and in New Jersey strictly for sports betting purposes.
PointsBet has numerous banking options and promotions on its site, both revolving and welcome offers, and the product can be found on desktop, mobile web browsers and both iOS and Android.
In order to make real money wagers on sports at PointsBet, the player must be located in New Jersey and it is tracked via geolocation software. A couple of examples of sports/markets offered at PointsBet are:
This is what makes PointsBet unique, its own betting type known as PointsBetting.
Here is how it works, in the simplest form: Acting as a multiplier, PointsBetting can both increase your winnings or perhaps make you lose more. Without risk, there is no reward though, right?
Since it’s the NFL season, let’s use an NFL game as example.
The New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens are set to play this Sunday. The Patriots are favorited, but with PointsBetting we’re not concerned with that. We are concerned with the total (over/under). The total on this game is at 48.
From here, you can bet the over/under. Either way, for each point it goes over/under, you bet with be multiplied by that amount. So, if you take the over and the game reaches 55 points, you will get your wager multiplied by 7. However, the same goes for the opposite. If you bet the over but it goes under by 7, you will lose your bet amount, times 7.
Players will get 2 Risk-Free Fixed Odds Bets up to $250 each, and 2 Risk-Free PointsBets up to $250 each. Only Available to Customers in NJ. 21+ Only. T&C's Apply
