PointsBet Now Live in Pennsylvania
PointsBet Sportsbook has launched its sports betting app in Pennsylvania, bringing an exciting new style of wagering to the Keystone State.
It’s a gift from the Land Down Under to the Land of Cheesesteaks, Soft Pretzels and Rocky Balboa! On February 10, Australia-based PointsBet.com introduced its sports betting app to the Keystone State of Pennsylvania.
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 Pennsylvania bettors need to know to get in the game, and start wagering on their favorite teams:
The PointsBetting Difference
Fixed-odds betting is pretty cut-and-dried: you win some, you lose some. PointsBetting rewards you based on your accuracy. Unlike fixed odds, each point of difference from the spread or total becomes a multiplier of the original stake, allowing you to win or lose more based on the outcome of your wager.
So the more right you are, the more you win—and vice versa.
PointsBetting is a high-risk, high-reward form of betting that is unique to PointsBet. In other words, every basket, every yard, every game and every point matters.
PointsBet Big on U.S. Sports
For a company born and bred in Australia, PointsBet.com is bullish on stateside sports and claims to offer more markets on the NBA and NFL than any other bookmaker in the world.
It offers a unique set of markets unavailable elsewhere. These include:
- Player shooting percentages (Field goal, free throw, 3-point, etc.)
