Pointsbet review

PointsBet is a relatively new sportsbetting operator, having been launched in 2017 in Australia. Their approach to betting is a bit different compared to traditional bookmakers – aside from the fixed odds markets that you can find with all the other sportbooks, they also offer a unique feature called “Pointsbetting” which adds a variable characteristic to the bets; essentially, the winnings or losses of a bet get multiplied based on how correct or wrong a player is about their bet’s outcome,

PointsBet is present on the New Jersey market since January 2019, in partnership with Meadowlands Racetrack.

The brand is endorsed by two well-known sportsmen, the former NFL All-Pro Cornerback Darrelle Revis and by Allen Iverson, who is one of the NBA Hall of Fame inductees from 2016 – a solid duo supporting a solid brand.

PointsBet Review

One of the advantages of being a fairly young operator is that they built their sportsbook using the latest technologies, thus launching a far superior product compared with the other options available so far on the market. Both the desktop version and mobile apps have a sleek and intuitive feeling. The users have easy access to the Featured Bet Types, which is the section listing the most Popular wagers, as well as access to the Upcoming matches, which makes it easy to find the next fixtures to bet on.

To quickly get to the desired match, one must simply access the top menu and select games either by market or by future bets for that market. On the side menu icon, you can find all the betting markets, the in-play section for live betting, other popular bet types, the promotional page as well as a betting academy section named Revis Betting Academy which offers explanations on the technicalities of betting.


PointsBet on Mobile

PointsBet is available on both iOS and Android. Both apps incorporate the same features available on the desktop version, including the fixed odds and the Pointsbeting. iOS can be downloaded directly from the app store.The Android app can be downloaded from their website.

When opening either of the apps, users have the option to choose from three different menus: “in play”, “featured” and “next up”. These allow easy navigation to the top betting options and thus facilitating the playing experience.

What to bet on

Before launching, PointsBet promised they will offer the largest selection of bet types than any other New Jersey legal operator, and they kept this promise very well. At the moment they are offering over 200 unique wagers, out of which the most popular are:

Point Spreads: This enables users o bet to bet for or against the spread for a team to win.

Totals: Over or under betting type for the total score of a match.

Moneyline: You simply have to pick the match winner

Props: PointsBet has the most varied selection of props compared with all the other New Jersey sportsbetting operators. They offer the possibility to play O/U on how many points a player or a team will score, how many yards a running back will reach etc.

Parlays: This type of bet allows you to combine multiple bets on the same bet slip and increase your potential profits considerably. However, all selections must win in order to win the parlay bet and benefit from the increased revenue.

Futures: These are great for big competitions such as who will win the SuperBowl or who will win the NBA MVP.

At the moment Pointsbet is offering betting markets on 16 different sports, with the most popular ones being:

  • Football: NFL, NCAA and AAF
  • Basketball: NBA and  NCAA
  • Ice Hockey
  • Baseball
  • Soccer
  • MMA and Boxing
