PointsBet Sportsbook Promo Code

Australia-based bookmaker PointsBet has been making significant waves in the U.S. online betting market since its 2019 debut in New Jersey. Featuring a top-tier mobile app equipped with a full complement of betting markets, plus exclusive features like PointsBetting, it is expected to contend for a top market share throughout the country.

This is your catch-all summary for all things PointsBet. Learn about bonuses, how to sign up for an account, state eligibility, registration, deposits, and more. We’ve got you covered.

PointsBet Promo Code

PointsBet currently offers the same bonus in each state that it operates. The latest promotion is a great offer of up to $500 in free second-chance bets. After signing up for an account, your first bet is on the house, up to $500. What a deal!

If your first bet loses, PointsBet will send you bonus bets that equal the amount of the lost bet (max $500). If you wagered $200 and lost, they will send you $200 in bonus bets. Once your first wager settles it will take about 24 hours for the bonus bets to arrive.

Creating a PointsBet Account

Creating your PointsBet online sports betting account only takes a few seconds.

Funding and Withdrawing from a PointsBet Sportsbook Account

Once you’re logged in, there’s a red ‘Deposit Now’ button in the top right corner of the sportsbook where you can easily fund your account. Accepted methods will be different in each state, but will generally have some overlap. Expect to see:

In states where PointsBet operates a retail sportsbook you can deposit and withdraw in person at the casino cage. You never have to worry about the security of your funds, if you need your money you can drive over and get it.

As mentioned above, available methods will be dependent on your location. The best way to see what’s available is to load up the PointsBet website, or the mobile app, and visit the cashier.

Making a deposit at PointsBet couldn't be easier.

Betting Options on PointsBet Online Sportsbook

You’ve got an account. You’ve got money to wager. Now it’s time to get involved in the action. PointsBet highlights the most popular games to bet on under its ‘Featured’ tab. It will show you the spread, total, and moneyline options first. If you click directly on the event you’ll see a wealth of other options though, so be sure to look around until you find exactly what you’re looking for.

PointsBet uses a collapsible menu on the left side of the screen to display its betting markets. Once you’ve pinpointed the right bet(s), simply select it and you’ll see it appear on your slip. Add numerous wagers to take part in multi-bet options like parlays. When ready, hit the ‘PLACE BET’ button at the bottom of the betting slip to book it.

PointsBetting

PointsBetting, the wager that gives the sportsbook its name, is a revolutionary way to bet on sports. While it’s a high-risk option, it has the potential for massive payouts, truly delivering a high reward.

When PointsBetting you first declare the amount you want as your “stake”. For example, let’s say you’ve chosen $10. Each “unit” or point for the bet will then be worth $10. If the over/under for an NFL QB’s yardage was set at 300 yards, and you took the over, you would earn $10 for every yard that the QB throws for in excess of 300. If they end the game with 325 yards, you’d earn $10 (stake) x 25 yards (unit) = $250. 

Unfortunately, it works in reverse, too. If the QB threw for just 275 yards, you would then be responsible for paying $250. PointsBetting offers the potential for big wins, and big losses… but rest assured, bettors are engaged until the final whistle because every point and every play counts.

PointsBet Sportsbook Active States and General Information

PointsBet has its sights set on conquering the legal sports betting market within the United States. The first mobile PointsBet experience went live in New Jersey on February 27, 2019, as a skin on the Meadowlands Racetrack license. Since then, both online and retail sportsbooks have debuted in Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana.

State-to-State Differences

While PointsBet offers a very similar sports betting product in each state that it operates, there are some small details that differ that we’ll summarize for you here.

New Jersey

PointsBet operates in New Jersey as a skin on the Meadowlands Racetrack gaming license, however, it is not the official brick-and-mortar sportsbook sponsor on site – that honor goes to FanDuel. This means that you cannot deposit to your PointsBet account in person, at the Meadowlands Racetrack. You can withdraw there, though.

In NJ you can’t wager on in-state college teams, or any college sports being held in the state. Unfortunately this includes any NCAA tournament action or college bowl games that are hosted within New Jersey.

Iowa

Iowa is a popular state for sports betting, and was actually one of the first states to offer mobile betting. PointsBet has partnered with Catfish Bend Casino to bring its app to the state. One thing to remember is that Iowa does not permit in-game props on college sports, or any individual sports with participants under 18.

Illinois

Similar to New Jersey, in the state of Illinois sportsbooks are not permitted to offer action on in-state college teams. Northwestern, the Illini, etc., won’t be found on betting sheets. Hawthorne Race Course is PointsBet’s partner within the state, where a retail betting facility is also available.

Colorado

Colorado does not have many restrictions on what you can bet on. Betting on drafts, award shows and all your favorite sports is fair game. The only restriction of note is that prop bets on college sports are not allowed in Colorado.

Michigan

PointsBet was among the first operators out of the gate in the Great Lakes State, opening its MI online sportsbook in January 2021. PointsBet is partnered in Michigan with the Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, who own the Northern Waters Casino.

New York

PointsBet is one of nine sportsbooks operating in New York, which has become the largest sports betting market in the country. The operator has done quite well so far in the Empire State, due partially to its popular betting platform and name recognition from partnering with NBC Sports and Sunday Night Football.

Pennsylvania

Right across the border from New York, PointsBet is also live in Pennsylvania. The operator partnered with Hollywood Casino York and is online-only. The Casino itself has a Barstool Sportsbook retail location on-site. No matter; PointsBet makes virtually all its money from online access anyway, and it has been quite successful in PA so far.

West Virginia

Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races is in the northeastern corner of the state, actually closer to Baltimore and Washington, DC than any major city in West Virginia. It’s also the casino partner for PointsBet, which has an online-only presence in the state. West Virginia has proven to be a solid sports betting market, with several online sportsbooks and a handful of retail options.

Virginia

Virginia is a new sports betting and casino gaming market. Casinos are coming to the state and online sports betting is already present. PointsBet partnered with Colonial Downs, a very old and popular horse track. Right now the partnership is online-only, but we wouldn’t be surprised if a retail sportsbook pops up there soon.

Kansas

PointsBet launched in Kansas on September 1, 2022 through a partnership with the Kansas Crossing Casino, one of just four retail casinos in the state. The partnership is online-only for now but that may change in the future.

Maryland

Fun fact: The entire Potomac River, up to the Virginia shore, is considered part of Maryland. This is relevant because PointsBet’s retail partner in Maryland is actually connected to Virginia. Riverboat-on-the-Potomac is licensed by Maryland regulators but sits in the water just off downtown Colonial Beach, Virginia. A retail sportsbook is planned, which is sure to be popular among the area residents in…Virginia.

Ohio

PointsBet launched in Ohio on January 1, 2023 as an online partner of Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course. No word yet on whether this partnership includes a retail sportsbook at the facility.

PointsBet in Canada

PointsBet is now in Canada! That’s right, the popular US and Australian sportsbook has entered another country due to Ontario opening up its borders to outside operators. Over a dozen sportsbooks, including PointsBet, quickly entered the market in April 2022, and more are expected in the future. It is expected that PointsBet will do quite well in Ontario because of its popularity in America.

From Browser to App

PointsBet accepts online wagers through both browsers and its modern mobile app, and generally speaking there’s not much difference between the two. The mobile app has been optimized to work on a smaller screen, and offers a very similar, equally user-friendly experience. The Android app can be downloaded directly from the Google Play store while iOS users can find PointsBet right in the App store.

When running the PointsBet app you’ll be required to permit it access to the internal GPS chip on your device, so that it can confirm that you are physically located in a state with legal online sports betting. Similarly, browser-based bettors will have to install a plugin on their computer to serve the same function.
