PointsBet Promo Code and Bonuses

3.5 / 5

When PointsBet launched in the United States, they added three different welcome bonuses just for signing up. You get one free bet for signing up and then another two risk-free bets worth up to $1000 ($500 each wager).

Use Bonus code WAWVIP and you will get all three welcome bonuses for signing up.

$50 No-Deposit Bonus:

PointsBet also has a $50 No-Deposit bonus bet when you sign up. As long as you sign up for an account, PointsBet will give you $50 to place wagers on before having to deposit your own money, which is perfect for beginners who are just getting their feet wet. The $50 bonus bet cannot be withdrawn, but if you are able to win your bet, your winnings can be withdrawn.

PointsBet wants it to be known that you have seven days from signing up to use your bonus bet. Once you find a wager you would like to make, you will check the box to use your bonus bet. However, PointsBet does restrict customers on what they can bet that bonus on too. You can’t bet on anything over -200 odds. If there’s a wager that you like at -210 odds, the bonus bet will not be allowed.

Two Risk Free Bets Totaling $1000:

PointsBet offers two risk-free bets when you sign up to allow bettors two opportunities to win a risk-free bet. This helps eliminate the risk of a loss on your first wager.

Previous/Other PointsBet Promotions:

PointsBet.com has made a big splash with their promotions since debuting into the USA.

If you are looking for current promotions, just log in with your account credentials and click “promos” on the left hand toolbar.

Promotions change on a day-to-day basis depending on which sports are in season or rivalry games that are being played.

Here’s a sampling of the promotions PointBet runs:

No Juice NFL Lines:

During the NFL last season, PointsBet added a promotion which eliminated the juice on NFL spreads. If the New York Giants were +3 -110, you can get the Giants for +3 +100 and have better odds with your selection. Having better odds means your wager would win more money if your team wins against the spread.

Early Payouts:

PointsBet sporadically comes out with early payouts that pay your pre-game wager instantly if the team you back goes ahead by a certain number of points. During the NHL playoffs, if the team you backed led by two goals, you would get an instant payout without having to hold your breath waiting for the final horn.

OUR FAVORITE Name Your Bet:

Most recently, PointsBet got clever and interactive with a name your bet promotion. They asked bettors/customers to tweet @PointsBetUSA with any bet, outside the box, or not, to their account where they would look through different inquiries and create odds for your idea.

PointsBet Game Day Guarantee: Smart Money Welcome

Recently, some sportsbooks have limited bettors to $5 or $1 wagers just because they’ve won a lot. This is legal and allowed but it’s definitely defeating. On April 2019, PointsBet showed their support for bettors that are good at what they do. They announced “Game Day Guarantee” to appeal to gamblers that have been dumped by other sportsbooks. PointsBet will accept wagers as high as $10,000 on game day for all wagers on the NBA, NHL, and NFL no matter what.

Competitive Lines

4.5 / 5

PointsBet Sportsbook has a wide array of game selection with moneylines, spreads, parlays, totals, futures, along with player props and future props to go with their signature PointsBetting.

In comparison to other sportsbooks, PointsBet features fair odds on their site and do a great job updating the line regularly.

Support

5 / 5

For new sports bettors, PointsBet has a couple of blog posts called "The Review Betting Academy" which explains the different types of bets that are offered. Live chat is available 24/7 online.

Phone support is available from 8am to midnight every day. Phone support is around for 16 hours of the day. The e-mail and chat options are at the bottom of every page on the site and are easily noticeable. They also have a “help” section with a list of FAQ that are very detailed in helpful to customers who don’t want to wait to chat to a real person.

Banking

4.5 / 5

At PointsBet NJ you can deposit using many options. The minimum deposit is $5 for the sports betting beginner who doesn't want to wager much.

  • Debit & Credit Cards - The minimum deposit is $5 and a maximum deposit of $50,000. Most banks do not allow debit cards to deposit money into gambling/gaming sites. This isn’t PointsBet’s fault.
  • Online Banking - At PointsBet, they recommend using online banking. With this feature, you can choose from over 1,000 different bank options, securely sign into your bank and deposit money fluently.
  • PointsBet Card - You can apply for a PointsBet card online. You can set it up by clicking PointsBet Mastercard on the deposit screen. You will receive a digital version instantly and a physical card will come a couple weeks later at the latest.
  • PayNearMe - PointsBet allows customers to deposit money into their accounts with over 27,000 convenient cash payment locations. If you are without a bank, you can deposit this way.

Withdraw

3.5 / 5

Players are only able to request an ACH/eCheck (Wire Transfer) or use their PointsBet Card for withdrawals. There needs to be more deposit methods in the future for this rating to go up.



What We Don't Like About PointsBet NJ

On PointsBet, the sportsbook doesn't offer teasers or round robin parlays. Many people love this feature especially during the NFL season. Those players will need to choose a different sportsbook.

If you’re not careful with PointsBetting, a simple $10 wager can really rob you of cash. Small wagers are necessary if you must PointsBet. It’s a unique feature, but if you’re not careful, you can lose a ton of money fast.

Types of Bets Offered by PointsBet

PointsBet has a large array of wagers on the menu from traditional and spread betting markets. PointsBet has promised to offer more markets on US sports than any other sportsbook. They’ve had 200 individual betting options for a single game.

Here are some of the bets:

  • Against the Spread bets
  • Point totals (Over/Under)
  • Total passing yards for a specific quarterback
  • Running yards for a running back or how many receiving touchdowns for a receiver
  • How many seconds it will be before the first scoring play
  • The winning margin
  • Largest lead acquired by either team at any point during the game
  • Individual NBA player’s 3-point field goal percentage (or any individual stat with points/rebounds/assists along with steals and blocks.)

PointsBet Mobile App

The PointsBet mobile app is available for IOS and Android devices. You can download the app from the App Store or by visiting PointsBet.com. The PointsBet app currently has a 4.4 rating out of 5 with 158 ratings in the app store. The app is responsive and allows for an awesome betting experience.

PointsBet is a refined mobile sportsbook in the US. Once you log-in to PointsBet, you’re greeted with tons of featured betting markets and a navigation bar to help you find exactly the bet you’re looking for. The menu bar is located in the bottom of the app and gives customers access to quickly change between sports wagers, in-play bets that have been placed, along with different promotions that PointsBet is using. There’s also a tab to manage your account whether you would like to deposit money, withdraw money, or change privacy settings.

Per the reviews on the PointsBet app, many customers can’t get over PointsBet offering 250 individual marks for a single game alone on the mobile device.

The front page on PointsBet usually shows the top games for the day but if you click the option "sports" from the bottom menu, you will be able to see the list of live and upcoming games that day and beyond.

Where can you bet in-person using PointsBet?

After PointsBet secured license in New Jersey, they’re now looking to move outside of New Jersey. PointsBet has plans to be licensed in five states currently.

New Jersey
• Land-Based Partner: Meadowlands Racetrack

PointsBet has launched online and in-person betting in New Jersey in 2018 in partnership with the Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford (next to Metlife Stadium, home of the Giants and Jets.)

New York
• Land-Based Partner: Tioga Downs Casino Resort

PointsBet has agreed to a deal with Tioga Downs Casino Resort in hopes that New York will soon legalize online sports betting.

Illinois
• Land-Based Partner: Hawthorne Race Course

PointsBet will be good to go in Chicago once online sports betting is legal. PointsBet and Hawthorne have a deal in place that will have online betting, a mobile app, and a retail sportsbook. PointsBet will also manage different sportsbooks at off-track locations that will be managed by Hawthorne as well.

Iowa
• Land-Based Partner: Catfish Bend Casino

PointsBet has a retail sportsbook live in Catfish Bend Casino in Iowa as of April 2019. The retail sportsbook opened for business on August 19, 2019 with online betting following soon. Iowa’s law requires customers to register their accounts at Catfish Bend Casino, which is quite a hassle, but a starting point for Iowa and PointsBet.

Colorado
• Land-Based Partner: Double Eagle Hotel and Casino

PointsBet reached a deal with Double Eagle Hotel and Casino in July of 2019. PointsBet made the deal hoping sports betting will be voted on and approved in the November 2019 election. Once approved, PointsBet will launch a venue that will have the sportsbook, along with multiple TV’s and viewing parties. It’s unsure whether online and mobile betting is also in the deal, but licensed sportsbooks will have that luxury. PointsBet will likely go after mobile betting in Colorado once it’s legal.

Rewards Program

To ensure loyalty with their customers, PointsBet has a VIP Rewards program. 100 points in the reward program is worth $1.

  • For every $1 on a PointsBetting wager, you receive 1 reward point.
  • For every $5 on fixed wagering, you receive 1 reward point.
  • For every $1 on a parlay wager, you receive 1 reward point.

The reward system can be better. It would take 500 points to receive five dollars. However, this isn’t real money. It becomes a bonus bet. Still, it’s good to know that you can earn some of your money back by being a loyal customer.
