Iowa’s Open for Sports Betting

sportsquare and PointsBet have joined forces to deliver the best in legal sports betting in the Hawkeye State. Here’s how to get started.

“Is this heaven?”

“No, this is Iowa.”

Those memorable lines, from the 1989 movie Field of Dreams, have a modern-day connection to sports betting. Because these days, heaven, in the form of legal wagering, has come to America’s heartland.

In 2019, Iowa joined the long list of U.S. states to legalize sports betting. It doesn’t even matter that the state has no professional sports team.

sportsquare has partnered with PointsBet to deliver the best in legal sports betting to the Hawkeye State.

But first things first. Here’s what Iowa bettors need to know to get in the game, and start wagering on their favorite teams:

  • Iowa is an in-person registration This means users can register to play on Pointsbet.com from anywhere, but must visit Catfish Bend Casino in Burlington to complete the verification process. After that, they can place wagers on mobile from anywhere in the state.
  • Iowans can sign up, deposit andbet from their mobile devices without downloading an app.

Sign up at PointsBet.com, and get two risk-free bets up to $1,000! New customers only.

Iowa bettors love their Hawkeyes men’s college basketball team, who entered the final week of the regular season ranking 18th in the U.S. The Hawkeyes were 20-9, with remaining games against the Purdue University Boilermakers of Indiana, and Illinois’ Fighting Illini.

Next week is the conference tournament. Next week after that, most likely, is March Madness. The Hawkeyes are a reasonably good team, with odds to win the championship at roughly 50-1 at most sportsbooks.

People in Iowa will enjoy this ride. And then it’s the Kansas City Royals. Chicago Cubs. Minnesota Twins. Kansas City Chiefs. Chicago Bears. Milwaukee Bucks. And all points in-between.

Iowa bettors can love their Hawkeyes. But with mobile betting, they can like anything. And bet it.
