PointsBet Sportsbook Bonus Code
PointsBet Indiana is not yet live, but it does plan to be in the market very soon. It has announced that it hopes to be up and running in Indiana by the Super Bowl. It has a national partner in Penn National Gaming, which will get it into the Indiana sports betting market.
This company has been the most unique, in our opinion. It is an Australia-based company and brings an interesting perspective to the sports betting industry. Allen Iverson was its spokesperson in the New Jersey market.
PointsBet currently has a mobile app available in New Jersey. It is available for both Android and iOS users. You can download it at the iTunes store or on the PointsBet site, which will be the same for Indiana users once available.
Its app has a very similar setup to the competitors, with a nice offering of betting and funding types. PointsBet security is probably the best on the market. If you have any hesitations about cybersecurity, PointsBet is probably the best option for you.
It also has the Revis Betting Academy. Darrelle Revis is one of its spokespeople. If you aren’t familiar, he is a cornerback who played for a few different teams in the NFL. It is like a FAQ that offers advice and answers any questions about sports betting you may have.
When it does open, PointsBet may have the best deposit bonus on the market. It will be offering a two risk-free bets option that has a maximum of $1,000. That is twice as good as the next best free bet promo. You will get up to two $500 risk-free bets. You’ll have to use one on a spread and one on a moneyline bet, but other than that, there are no restrictions.
We won’t know for sure what exactly the Indiana bonuses will be, but we can list a few that it has run in New Jersey. These are some of the more enticing offers that it has had:
- 3-Pointer Bonus: If you bet a $100 on an NBA spread, you receive $3 for every shot from behind the arc the team you bet on hits. This will probably only be available on teams locally like the Chicago Bulls, Indiana Pacers and Cleveland Cavaliers. It lets you bet on the Brooklyn Nets, Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks with this bonus in New Jersey.
- First TD: On certain games, if the team you bet on scores the first touchdown, you automatically win the bet.
- Spread 105: All NFL games have a moneyline of -105. Obviously there are some restrictions on this promo, and since the NFL season is almost over, I’m not sure they will offer this to Indiana bettors.
- Karma Kommittee: Some of the worst bad beats have been refunded to bettors. In a really interesting marketing idea, it started refunding some bad beats. UCF bettors against Duke last year in the NCAA Tournament was one that got a lot of national attention.
It also has daily boosts like the other sites. Other offers are also listed on its daily promo tab.
- PointsBetting: This is what its site was named after. It offers points betting, which allows you to make your bet as a multiplier. If you bet on the Cowboys -6, and you choose the pointsbetting option. You will be paid, or pay, based on how much they beat the spread by. If they win by 12 and you bet $10, you win $60. If they only win by one point, say 21-20, you would owe $50.
- Technology: It has probably the most updated security setup of anyone. Its encryption is second to none, leaving your information safe.
- Welcome Bonus: The $1,000 in risk-free bets is by far the biggest offer on the market. You will get two risk-free bets that are valued at up to $500 each.
- Creativity: PointsBet is really creative with its promotions. During baseball season, it had a lot of player-driven promotions on MLB moneylines. If you bet the Cubs for a minimum of $25, you could get a bonus of $25 for every homer Kris Bryant hits.
It also does a lot of bonuses if you do the pointsbetting. If you bet on an NFL player to have a certain number of rushing yards, you would receive $25 in NFL credit or something of the like.
For now, the biggest disadvantage is that it is not available in Indiana. Hopefully, it will join the list of live sites soon.
- Speed: While it does have great technology in security, the platform is a little slow. You definitely get quicker movement on FanDuel and DraftKings.
- Deposits and Withdrawals: It lacks a few of the methods offered by the other sites.
Banking options at PointsBet Sportsbook Indiana
PointsBet Sportsbook Online offers a variety of deposit and withdrawal options for the convenience of Indiana bettors.
When comparing the methods to its competitors, PointsBet falls a little short. You will still be able to find a way that works for you, but the choices are limited. It does have a lot of banks already approved to accept deposits from, which is an issue with a few of the sportsbooks.
- Debit or Credit Card: It accepts Visa and MasterCard. This is probably the most convenient method for most people.
- ACH: A lot of banks are listed on its site, which is a huge plus. Some banks won’t accept payments to gambling sites.
- PointsBet Card: This method is convenient, but you will have to apply as you do for a traditional credit card. Once it has a casino partner, you will be able to load it at those locations. You will be able to use this card as a traditional credit card as well.
You can have your winnings put on your PointsBet card and then use it as a debit card. You can also request a check by mail, and you will most likely be able to take your money via ACH as well.
Betting options available at PointBet
The site has a nice start when you can click on featured and next up options. This will list the most popular bets and games that are about to start. Once you click on a game, you can bet on moneyline, total, and spread.
If you want more, there is another tab that has all the promos, quarter and half time bets, totals, etc. There are up to 200 other options, including its pointsbetting options.
There is a countdown clock that lets you keep track of when a game starts in case you are waiting for any last-minute line movement or just aren’t sure which way you want to go. A lot of the bigger games even have a quick preview of the game.
Once a game has started, you can click on a live betting option. You can edit your preference to see the odds in the traditional American view or decimals like they do in Europe.
Its name-your-bet feature is one that I really enjoy. You can tweet @PointsBetUSA with a bet you’d like to see. If it likes your idea, you will then find it on the board. If there is something very bizarre you want to wager on, this is your best way of getting it done.
What sports can you bet on?
PointsBet has a lot of the betting options you will find on the other sites. It has moneylines, spreads, props, futures, parlays, and in-game betting. The pointsbetting is an added feature that can be a lot of fun, especially if your team absolutely crushes the spread.
Keep in mind that if the game goes the other way, you have to pay the big loss as well. PointsBet live betting is one of the better features as well. It has an extensive listing, and it is easy to use.
Right now, it is allowing live betting on college sports and professional sports in the US and abroad. You won’t be able to bet on any NCAA individual athletes. So basically, no individual props when betting NCAA sports, but you can bet on the games normally, and live.
Here is the list of sports you can wager on PointsBet:
- Aussie Rules Football
- Motor Racing
- Rugby Union
PointsBet Sportsbook software & app
The technology from PointsBet is impressive. It offers a great back end that is the best on the market from a security perspective. The app is available on iOS and Android. You do not have to have the app to use PointsBet. You can just visit its website, which will eventually be at in.pointsbet.com.
Its websites look exactly like the mobile app. We really like the layout, and a few of the issues it has had in New Jersey have been fixed.
It does a good job of getting a lot of information on the screen without making it so small that it is hard to read on a smaller phone. It can be downloaded from the iTunes store or by getting it off its website.
