PointsBet was launched in Australia in 2017 and has now started operations in New Jersey, through a partnership with Meadowlands race track.
They were the first online sportsbook to offer points betting in Australia. This is another name for spread betting, meaning you can win or lose more on your bets, depending on how right (or wrong) you are.
Having partnered with major organizations such as the AFL, Australian Rugby Union, NRL, Tennis Australia, and Cricket Australia, Pointsbet is a well-respected betting agency.
After moving into the US, they have used the marketing potential of stars like Darrelle Revis and Allen Iverson to gain more attention in the marketplace.
The scheme of the app is black and red, which actually really pops and stands out.
The app very much mirrors the PointsBet website, so it's easy to follow.
It's available as a download through their website for Android, and on the iTunes store for Apple.
In-Play betting is made simple, with odds fluctuations taking place by the second, and indicated by green and red changes in the odds on display.
Betting on sports at Pointsbet is simple. All in-play events are listed on the front page of the website and app, with all sports in easy reach through the menu.
We love the in-depth previews offered on all major events. Some websites will give a puff piece of a couple of sentences, but PointsBet really goes the extra mile with detailed information on the matchups.
PointsBet allows you to make up your own bets! If there's something you want to bet on, but it's not on their app/website, then just tweet them.
By tweeting @PointsBetUSA with the hashtag #NameABet, they'll price up anything that you send - as long as the event is already on the sportsbook.
An example is Bill Simmons (from The Ringer podcast) asked for (LeBron Games Played + AD Games Played) vs (Kawhi Games Played + PG Games Played) and Pointsbet quoted -5.5 games. Get creative!

A great new feature offered by PointsBet NJ is the ability to cash out your bets.
This means, if your bet is winning, you can lock in your winnings before the event has ended. Alternatively, if your bet is going south, you can cut your losses and get back some of your stake before it's totally lost.
Cash-out is available on most main markets at Pointsbet, but not every market.
You can only use this feature on pre-game fixed-odds singles bets. For example, if you bet Manchester United to win, and they are leading 2-0 at half-time, that would be a great time to lock in your winnings and cash out.
Points betting is a brand new bet type that has arrived in New Jersey.
Basically, points betting takes traditional wager types like spreads, totals or even props, and adds a twist where your winnings (or losses) aren't fixed. The more you're right, the more you win!
The bettor's winnings (or losses) are multiplied by the difference of the final result, and whatever the spread, total or prop was.
New England is favoured by 5.5 points at home to Pittsburgh in the NFL.
Let's say you stake $10 on New England, thinking they will win the game easily, probably by a touchdown or more. You're effectively "buying" the Patriots for $10 per point.
PointsBet NJ has a great loyalty system, which allows you to earn rewards for every bet you place.
Whenever you bet on the Pointsbet app or website, you'll accrue points. This is how many points you'll get for each type of bet:
Once you've collected at least 250 rewards points, you can cash them out to your betting balance. Collect 5,000 reward points and add $50 to your balance. Collect 10,000 and you can cash out $100!
Here at OSBNJ, we think Pointsbet offers the widest range of promos and specials of any online NJ sportsbook.
Daily, their promo page is updated with new offers on tons of different sports. You'll find they really step up their game before big golf tournaments, and before weekend football action.
For example before the 2019 Open Championship golf, the following were all on offer:
This just gives you an idea of how active they are with providing new and existing customers with chances to increase their winnings!
PointsBet has sought the help of two of sport's greatest past stars in it's New Jersey expansion.

Also featuring in PointsBet's website and advertisements is former NBA MVP Allen Iverson.
