Why You Should Bet At Pointsbet


PointsBet NJ sportsbook offers all the usual betting options but in addition the operator has a unique product called PointsBetting. This is the major differentiation between PointsBet and all other US operators.


PointsBet also has the “Revis Betting Academy,” where former New York Jet Darrelle Revis explains all the different ways to bet and how to use the PointsBetting software.


Overview


PointsBet is an Australian company partnered with the Meadowlands Racetrack in New Jersey for its first entry into the US market. It also has a deal in place with Tioga Downs in New York.

PointsBetting


This is a high-risk game, but it offers the chance to make big returns — or big losses. The game is based on predicting how close the final number is to the spread.


A bettor can wager money on the over, for example. Assume a $1 bet and the total ends up 20 points over. In this case, the bettor wins $20, but if the final number ends up 10 points under, the bettor loses $10.


PointsBetting is offered on all of the four major US sports, NFL, NHL, MLB and NBA games. It is an exciting way to bet on sports that offers high risks and high rewards. Best to keep bets low until you fully understand the system.

Pointsbet Software


The sports betting software for desktop is browser-based so there is no need to download a special app.


PointsBet offers mobile apps for both Android and iOS devices. Links to the downloads are available at the bottom of every page on PointsBet.com. The same bets are available on the mobile apps as for the desktop version both for pre-game and in-game wagering.


Both mobile and desktop software is straightforward and easy to use. Navigation is easy simply because the site is so well organized.


The ‘Revis Betting Academy” is a section of the site fronted by former New York Jet Darrelle Revis. This is useful to beginners, but there are also insights for more experienced sports bettors.


Pointsbet VIP Scheme


The PointsBet rewards scheme works on the basis of accumulating points. One reward point per $1 fixed odds wager; five rewards points for every $1 wagered on a parlay; and one reward point for every $1 won or lost on PointsBetting. Rewards progress is visible on a dedicated Rewards page.

Bonuses, discounts and free bets are available in exchange for rewards points.


The scheme is traditional, and offers a better payback for the high volume bettor than for casual or occasional bettors.
