Where Is PointsBet Sportsbook Legal?

PointsBet is a new sportsbook in New Jersey that launched in January 2019 following the 2018 Supreme Court ruling that struck down the federal sports betting ban in the United States.

PointsBet is a unique sportsbook in its offering; they’re the new kid on the block trying to shake up the industry.

PointsBet Promo Code

PointsBet has a great offer to new users — a 200% deposit match. You deposit $50, you get $100 in bonus bets — no questions asked, no strings attached, no rollover required.

You can split up those bonus bets however you choose: $100 on one wager; $50 on two wagers; $25 on four wagers; etc. And they can be used for any fixed-market bet — spreads, over/unders, player props, parlays, teasers and more.

Other PointsBet Benefits & Review

Reduced Juice on NFL and NBA Bets

If you’re looking to use your bonus bets on NFL and NBA wagers, you’re in luck: PointsBet has reduced the juice EVERY NFL/NBA game this season from -110 to -105. You even get reduced juice on bets you make with your bonus funds.

Booster Odds

Every day, PointsBet offers better odds on select games. While other books are offering +100 on a bet, they’ll “boost” it up to +150, giving you the best odds by far in the industry.


A completely unique product you’ll find at no other sportsbook, PointsBetting allows bettors to reap the benefits of being really right about a game.

Let’s say you bet on the Warriors and Lakers to go over 220 points. With the PointsBetting product, you can get odds on every additional point over that number. If it finishes at 230, you win 10 times your bet.

Early Cash-Out

A little worried about how that fourth quarter will go? If you want to lock in your winnings or cut your losses, PointsBet will allow you to cash in a bet before the game ends.

Name a Bet

PointsBet offers lines on just about every sport and game you can think, along with game and player props. But if you happen to find something they’re not offering, just let them know, and they’ll set odds for you to bet!

Loyalty Programs and Rewards

Bettors will gain rewards on all bets made. Further, PointsBet gives bonus bets to users: For example, make 10 NBA bets, and you’ll get a $25 bonus bet for free.

Parlay Refunds

Every bettors know just how frustrating it can be to win the first three legs of your parlay but miss on the last one to go home empty. PointsBet takes some of the risk away: If you lose just one leg in a four-plus parlay, they’ll refund you up to $50.
