Australia-based PointsBet.com, which launched in New Jersey in 2019, has now come to the Hawkeye State of Iowa.
PointsBet brings a new twist to old-school sports wagers: along with fixed-odds markets, its high-risk, high-reward PointsBetting system bases a win on how right your bet is—i.e., your margin of victory.
Here’s what Iowa bettors need to know to get in the game, and start wagering on their favorite teams:
- First, 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. Verification is a one-time only process. After that, they can place wagers from anywhere in the state on mobile.
- Second, Iowans can sign up, deposit andbet from their mobile devices without downloading an app. PointsBet is also downloadable for online browsers.
The PointsBetting Difference
With fixed-odds betting, it’s pretty cut and dried: you win some, you lose some. With PointsBetting, how much you win or lose is determined by your accuracy. The more right you are, the more you win—and vice versa. Every basket, every yard, every game and every point matters.
