PointsBet was founded in 2017 in Australia and began trading solely as a PointsBetting service. Over the course of the next year, they added regular sports betting markets to their offerings and are now one of the major players in the Australian sports betting scene. In mid 2018, PointsBet was granted the license to begin trading in the USA.
PointsBet launched into the U.S market in early 2019 with the release of the brand new ‘PointsBet Sportsbook’, which combines points betting and fixed odds sports and racing markets in one website.
PointsBet first got their license to trade in the state of New Jersey and have since added Iowa to their short but expanding list of available states. PointsBet has also been approved to begin trading in Indiana, Michigan, Colorado, Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi and Ohio.

PointsBetting is a brand new way to bet on sports which allows the user to win more money depending on how right they are. If you back a team to cover a 3 point spread and the game ends up being a 15 point blowout, you have covered the spread by a full 12 points, meaning you’ll win 12x your stake!
As always, with more potential winnings, comes more potential risk. If your team fails to cover the spread by 5 points, you’ll lose 5x your original stake, and so on. Be sure to check out our FULL GUIDE TO POINTSBETTING here.
Even if you lose, you still win at PointsBet! Each bet at PointsBet, regardless of the outcome, will earn rewards pints which can be used to purchase bonus bets in the future. Users will receive:

When PointsBet officially opened its doors for business in Australia, the website and mobile app could only be described as ‘a little choppy’. However, with over a year of experience in the Australian betting market, the user interface has been honed and refined and looks ready to go to make a smooth transition to us U.S facing customers.
The PointsBet layout is simple and easy to use, combining a detailed homepage displaying popular and upcoming betting markets and displaying their current promotions clearly. A drop-down menu on the left-hand side of the screen will allow you to select an individual sport or race while you can log in or sign up in the top right hand corner.
PointsBet Mobile App
The PointsBet mobile app combines a sleek black design with easy to read betting markets and promotions. One downfall is that they are yet to integrate quick login technology such as pin code or touch ID, but apart from that, the PointsBet app cannot be faulted and is available on both iOS and Android.
