Crossing Broad cannot say enough good things about the PointsBet PA Mobile Sportsbook App, and now, at Super Bowl 56 time, there’s no better time to take advantage of the sportsbook’s $2,000 new-user promo that features two second-chance free bets:

PointsBet PA Online Sportsbook Review
One of the areas in which PointsBet stands above much of the competition is the app’s UI. The black, red, and white that adorn the PointsBet app provide a modern, sleek look that allows team and league logos to pop off the screen.
In addition to the featured games shown on the main landing page, PointsBet also includes a “next up” widget that includes a countdown until the beginning of any number of games. It’s worth noting that hopping on the app at virtually any time of day will see some game or matchup in the “next up” queue, as PointsBet offers plenty of domestic and international league games to wager on.
Bonuses & Promos
PointsBet Sportsbook offers one of the best new user sign-up bonuses in the industry and they are expected to roll out this excellent offer when the PointsBet PA app officially arrives in the Keystone State.
Once the app officially launches, new users who register and place a qualifying deposit can get in on PointsBet’s two second-chance free bets of up to $2,000. The first of the bets is a $500 free bet to be used on traditional point spread bets, which is simple enough. The second is a $1,500 free bet that users can use on PointsBet’s popular “PointsBetting” feature.
Note: You will need a promo code in order to access this new user sign-up bonus, so check back soon for updates.
Although PointsBet PA has not yet launched in Pennsylvania, it stands to reason the company will offer many of the same deposit methods seen across the border in New Jersey, including but not limited to:
- Online banking
- Credit/debit card
- Cash deposit at physical sportsbook (location TBD)
While online banking is typically considered the safest, quickest, and most secure way to deposit funds into your PointsBet account, each of the other deposit options provides its own level of convenience. It’s also worth noting that PointsBet PA could look to roll out their PointsBet Mastercard, just as it has in New Jersey, but news on that front has been limited.
As for in-person depositing, it stands to reason that PointsBet will allow for cash deposits at the physical sportsbook/casino once it opens, perhaps at Penn National’s in-progress construction in York, PA.
The number of withdrawal methods for PointsBet PA is expected to be a bit smaller than the deposit side of things, including online banking, ACH/eCheck withdrawal, and PayPal. As outlined above, there’s a chance a PointsBet Mastercard could be offered at some point in Pennsylvania, which would allow for withdrawals of funds. The belief is that cash withdrawals will also be permitted at PointsBet PA’s brick-and-mortar partner’s facility.
If the PointsBet PA app is anything like the PointsBet NJ app, prospective bettors in the Keystone State need not fear about the app’s stability. After using the PointsBet NJ app for months, our tests yielded no glitches or lost bets due to temporary or long-term instability.
Variety of Action
PointsBet PA is expected to offer the same wide variety of action found in the PointsBet NJ app. Assuming that comes to fruition, bettors in Pennsylvania will have the opportunity to place traditional sports bets, including moneyline, point spread, races to points, over/under total points, individual player props, and game outcomes. Users can also place futures bets, in which the bettor chooses who they believe will win a team or individual award.
The thing that sets PointsBet apart from their competition, however, is the added layer of PointsBetting, an exclusive betting option you can’t find on any other online sportsbook app in Pennsylvania. More on that below.
PointsBet PA has made an immediate impact once it crossed the border from New Jersey into the Keystone State. Philadelphia sports fans are intensely loyal, and Allen Iverson’s affiliation with the brand is expected to pay dividends. It’s worth noting, however, that the PointsBet app stands out on its own merit.
The app is incredibly sleek, reliable, and provides more than enough action to keep bettors coming back for more. Adding in perhaps the most innovative online sports betting feature in PointsBetting, PointsBet PA’s impact on PA online sports betting has been felt.
PointsBet PA Promotions
Here is the most recent new user sign-up promo for PointsBet PA:
Up to $2,000 in Second-Chance Free Bets
PointsBet NJ is currently offering new users an outrageous two-bet free offer that could total up to $2,000. The terms are straightforward and simple. Bettors who sign up for a new PointsBet account can get two second-chance free bets based on traditional wagers and PointsBetting.
Users who make a qualifying deposit can have their first traditional wager backed up by a $500 free bet. If the bet loses, users can earn up to $500 back in site credit. The high-risk, high-reward PointsBetting side of things will ensure that if the user’s first PointsBetting wager loses, they can recoup up to $1,500 in site credit.
This new user sign-up promotion is one of the most lucrative in the industry and, it’s made signing up with PointsBet PA a must.
What is PointsBetting?
PointsBetting is a way of betting that can have high-risk, high-reward outcomes. PointsBetting allows users to place unique bets that allow for winning or losing a multiple of such wagers. As outlined above, new users can take advantage of PointsBet’s sign-up promo allowing them to test out PointsBetting via a free bet of up to $1,500.
PointsBet Sportsbook got its start in Australia back in 2017. When the folks at PointsBet broke into the US market, they struck a deal with Basketball Hall of Famer Allen Iverson, who became the face of the brand when it launched in New Jersey. The advertising impact that Iverson–a former NBA MVP with the Philadelphia 76ers–will make in the launch of PointsBet PA cannot be overstated.
PointsBet is partnered in the US with Penn National Gaming, a deal that was announced on July 31, 2019. That deal also included partnerships between their brick-and-mortar properties and three other online sportsbooks. DraftKings Sportsbook partnered with The Meadows Racetrack and Casino, Barstool Sportsbook partnered with Hollywood Casino Grantville, and BetMGM Sportsbook partnered with Hollywood Casino Morgantown.
To this point, PointsBet is the lone online sportsbook without a brick-and-mortar partner, but Penn National Gaming is in the process of building a casino in York, PA that could very well end up being PointsBet PA’s venue.
PointsBet has seen plenty of success as of late across PA’s eastern border in terms of sports betting handle. In June 2021, New Jersey reported an online sports betting handle of $683,020,655 and $62,189,286 of online sports betting revenue. PointsBet and FanDuel Sportsbook, who share the same retail operator at the New Meadowlands Racetrack, generated a staggering $38,174,366 of the Garden State’s online sports betting revenue.
