More promotions from PointsBet Indiana
Every sportsbook needs more than just a welcome offer to keep its users interested. PointsBet IN offers several unique offers in hopes of keeping bettors new and old interested. Promotions normally surround the biggest events of the week, though the odd smaller event offer pops up now and again to keep things interesting.
PointsBet also puts its players in the driving seat when it comes to certain promos. If you think a bet is missing from the operator’s promotions list, simply tweet PointsBet and they’ll aim to post an offer for it. Here are a few promos you can find on the Indiana site:
Parlay promotions: If one leg of a four or more part parlay loses, you’ll be refunded up to $100.
Lunchtime boosted odds: Every sportsbook simply has to offer boosted odds. PointsBet offers boosts at midday every day, capped at $100.
Bet rewards: Receive points based on the amount you bet. Players are rewarded one point for every $5 fixed odds bet, and one point for every $1 parlay.
MLB Make it Rain: Place a minimum $50 pre-game, runline or moneyline bet on an MLB game. Receive $10 in free bets for each home run your team hits.
PointsBet Sportsbook app
The PointsBet mobile app in Indiana does a pretty good job of replicating the onsite experience while you’re on the go. You’ll find all the same features — live betting, account management, and a cashier.
The app is set against a black background, which may make it difficult for some to read. Other than that, PointsBet has its customers at the forefront of every part of its sportsbook. A menu down the left-hand side of the screen makes it easy to navigate the app on your device. You’ll find links to all the most popular sports there. You’ll also find an option to view an A-Z of all available sports, the promotions page, and more.
Overall, the app runs smoothly and experiences very few glitches, even with fast-paced live betting odds. If you’re ever on the go and forget to place your bets, the PointsBet app can get you up and running in a matter of minutes.
The IN app is available for both iOS and Android devices, covering most smartphones and tablets. Here’s how to get the app on your device, while also taking advantage of the operator’s welcome offer.

- Online sportsbook features
A sportsbook with a fantastic mobile app is all well and good, but we expect the same level of quality from the desktop product, too. PointsBet Sportsbook IN definitely pulls through with its online product, and we’ll go into more detail about that now.
The PointsBet homepage is super simple — there are no flashy banners, no ads, and very few links. A simple slider along the top of the page flicks through the sportsbook’s top offers of the day. You can click on the promo itself, or the ‘See All Promos’ button to find out more.
Scroll down to find odds on the biggest games of the week. Click the menu button in the top, left-hand corner of the site to pull up a list of all sports available on the site. A column on the far right of the site lists all the live, upcoming games.
Pull your bet slip up using the button in the top, right-hand side of the site, or by clicking on certain odds.
PointsBet’s online sportsbook does stick with the same red and black theme, though it’s much easier to read via the online product than the app. The simplicity of this sportsbook is what really makes it a winner for us.
Sports offered at PointsBet IN
PointsBet offers a pretty decent list of sporting options. It’s not the biggest we’ve seen, but it definitely covers everything we’d expect. Browse the most popular options in the left-hand menu, or click the ‘A-Z’ button to find a full list. Here are all the sports available at PointsBet Indiana:
- Aussie Rules
- Motor racing
- Rugby league
- Rugby union
- Table tennis
Betting options at PointsBet Sportsbook
PointsBet covers all the basic markets, including totals, spreads, and moneylines. The sportsbook also has a unique offering, pointsbetting, that distinguishes PointsBet from other operators out there.
Pointsbetting markets are high risk yet high reward. Players win or lose depending on how right or wrong they are with a bet. Pointsbetting is definitely exciting, but something you should approach with caution — it can result in big losses, but also some very large wins.
You’ll win or lose based on the margin of how correct you are with your bet. PointsBet uses various formulas to establish these margins. If you place a bet for a team to go over their 200-point total, you’ll win cash based on how many points over they go. With this, you could be raking in as much as $10 for every point over.
If they end up under 200, however, you’ll lose cash based on how many points they missed to reach your prediction. In this case, you won’t simply lose your wager. You can lose up to $10 for every point missed.
While your bet could result in wins of up to $100 for just one small wager, you could easily lose the same amount if things don’t go in your favor. This is definitely a betting option for those who aren’t worried about losing a bit of cash.
Banking options at PointsBet
We’ll be honest — PointsBet could definitely work on its payment options. While the sportsbook’s quality is up there with so many in Indiana, its banking options are where it starts to let itself down.
Despite this, the operator still offers the most popular payment methods out there so you should still be able to find something to suit you. Here’s more on banking at PointsBet.
Depositing at PointsBet
As of now, PointsBet offers just five methods to add funds to your account. While this is far from the largest selection out there, all methods featured are some of the safest ways to transfer your funds. You must deposit a minimum of $5 for your transaction to process. Depositing methods are:
- Online banking
- PointsBet prepaid card
- ACH transfer
Withdrawing funds from PointsBet
Most of the operator’s depositing methods can also be used to take funds out of your account. You may need to go through a second account verification process before making a withdrawal. Here are all the withdrawal options from PointsBet:
- Visa/Mastercard (debit only)
- ACH transfer
- PointsBet card
- Online banking transfer
Responsible gambling limits
If you’d like to keep a close eye on your cash and time spent on the PointsBet site, the operator offers an easy way to do so. Players can set deposit, spend, and time limits on their play by clicking on the Responsible Gaming icon in the top, left-hand corner of the homepage.
Once you’ve reached your set limits, you won’t be able to reset or change them until the restriction period has ended.
Customer support at PointsBet
The PointsBet customer service team is available 24/7 to help customers with their every need. The operator’s help page isn’t advertised as much as other sites’, but simply scroll to the bottom of the page and you’ll find the ‘Help’ link.
It’s important to click ‘Help’ first to see if the website’s FAQ can answer your query before contacting customer support. The FAQ isn’t the best out there — it doesn’t have a search bar or categories. What it does, however, is cover a large range of common questions in detail.
If you can’t find your answer within the FAQ, you may want to speak to customer support. To do this, scroll to the bottom of either the home or help page and click the ‘Live Chat’ link. You’ll need to enter your name, email, and a brief message about your question before you are put through to an operator.
If you’d prefer, click the ‘Email Us’ link at the bottom of the page to send a message through to PointsBet’s inbox. Replies for both contact methods are usually pretty fast. The operator is yet to set up a phone line.
