|PointsBet||10X $100 SECOND CHANCE BETS||TBD|
Crossing Broad offers an exclusive promo code for PointsBet. Users who sign up with the linked offer on this page can get 10x $100 in Second Chance Bets.
10x second-chance bets up to $100 each
New PointsBet users can get 10x second-chance bets up to $100 each if their first fixed-odds bet loses. The second-chance bets will be paid out at a rate of one per day for the next 10 days.
New users who take advantage are entitled to two refunds: one refund for the first PointsBetting wager, should it lose, and another for the first fixed-price bet, should it lose. No refunds are payable for winning, void or wagers resulted as a push.
It’s a very fun and unique betting experience, and worth trying out with the free bet. Keep in mind, these free bets will be credited to your account after you lose the qualifying bet.
This offer is exclusive to Crossing Broad and can be accessed by entering promo code BROADLINES which should be auto-populated when you register.
Is a promo code required?
Yes. To receive PointsBet’s best available signup bonus for new users, you must use a promo code. You do not need one to access PointsBet’s other promotions.
PointsBet is partnered with Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment and also has a branding partnership with Top Golf in New Jersey. They soft-launched in December with a full-on official launch in January, quickly earning publicity through their Karma Committee payout following the Ram-Saints NFC Championship Game where they refunded Saints bettors after a no-call on an obvious pass interference. They have done this several times since, including when Zion Williamson ripped his shoe on National TV against North Carolina. PointsBet has received criticism in the industry for refunding bets as nothing more than a marketing ploy, but I’m guessing most bettors won’t find a problem with it.
PointsBet also struck an agreement with Tioga Downs in New York and has plans to enter that market when online sports betting is legalized.
In April, PointsBet struck a deal with the Catfish Bend Casino in Burlington, Iowa to offer mobile and retail sports betting when it is approved in the state.
PointsBet Sportsbook launched in Australia in early 2017 and has since expanded its reach to the US. NBA legend Allen Iverson and former NFL cornerback Darrelle Revis are two of the sportsbook’s most prominent spokesmen with Iverson having a strong appeal in the Australian market. One of PointsBet’s biggest draws is it’s “PointsBetting” option in which users can win or lose more money depending on how correct their bet was.
Opening the PointsBet Sportsbook app reveals a sleek black home page with a featured games section, as well as a list of events you can bet on that are starting soon. To find the full array of sports betting options there is a drop-down menu with their full list of offerings, ranging from promotions to a variety of sports you can wager on.
Getting Started with PointsBet Sportsbook
Unlike DraftKings, you do not need your location turned on to open the app and browse around. However, if you are interested in more than just window shopping, you will need to enable your phone’s location setting, sign up for an account and be in New Jersey to place a bet.
But make sure to use a PointsBet promo code to access PointsBet’s best available offer. Get ten second-chance bets up to $100 each with promo code BROADLINES.
There are four ways that you can add money to your PointsBet account.
- Bank account– this is the preferred method and connects directly to your online banking
- Credit or debit card– use your credit or debit card to fund your PointsBet account
- ACH check– online check
- PointsBet Card– this is a verified PointsBet Mastercard that can be funded with your debit or credit card
Bank account is the best way to go, while all of the other options have some issues that are not specific to PointsBet. Legal sports betting sites have run into some issues with banks and credit card companies declining gambling-related transactions. There doesn’t seem to be much thought to this, as transactions are indiscriminately blocked or disallowed. Sometimes they will work, sometimes they won’t. The PointsBet Card is a workaround, allowing you to fund a prepaid card, which can in turn be used to fund your PointsBet account.
Despite these issues not being specific to PointsBet, the app does lag behind some of its competitors in terms of funding options. And if you’re looking for ease of depositing, we suggest checking out SugarHouse Sportsbook.
Scrolling past PointsBet’s large promotions carousel will take you to the “Featured” and “Next Up” tabs where you can find games the app thinks you may be interested in and games starting soon, respectively.
From the homepage view, you have to option to place a bet on the spread, total and the moneyline. To place a wager on one of the other markets offered on that game, you will have to click the desired game and go through the sub-categories to find the specific wager you want. There can be upwards of 200 markets, including points betting markets, on any individual game.
A nice feature is a ticker that tells your how long until the start of the game. Some matchups even feature of short betting preview snippet at the top.
On the main drop-down bar, you can also find In-Play, or live betting, options that are available. In this menu, there is also the option to change how the odds are displayed to your personal preference, whether it is American, decimal or fractional.
- Aussie Rules
- Motor Racing
- Rugby Union
Types of bets
PointsBet set out to offer more markets than their competitors, something that becomes obvious from the moment the app loads. For a single hockey game, there were 104 betting options that were broken down into eight categories. There are the standard wagers like the spread, total and moneyline, but bettors can also wager on which team will score first, will a team stage a comeback and much more.
Along with fixed odds betting, you can also choose to wager using their PointsBetting system, where the more correct your bet is, the more money you can win. However, with this type of betting, you can also lose more than your initial bet. If you bet $10 on a + 10 Spread and the game finishes with a 20-point differential, you get a 10x multiplier on your winnings. This multiplier can work against you and result in it being applied to your losses.
More importantly, they offer, in addition to traditional betting types, a unique betting style called points betting. Again, we described this last year and why it was a big deal, but here’s the gist from a real-world example they are currently offering:
You can bet the over-under on Joel Embiid to score under 25.5 points or over 27 (the delta becomes the vig). Each point he goes over (or under), you win (or lose) a multiple of your bet up to 25x.
Here’s how they explain it:
If that doesn’t add a layer of fun and intrigue to betting, I don’t know what does. I’m not just selling you on this either– we work with a number of NJ sportsbooks and this may be my favorite risk-reward tradeoff, which gives you good upside on small bets and keeps you engaged throughout the entire game.
You can use a PointsBet promo code to get a free “points bet”.
Just because a game started, it does not mean that you missed your chance to wager on it with In-Play betting on PointsBet NJ Sportsbook. Even 30 minutes into a soccer match and there are 50 markets available to place a bet on.
In PointsBet’s Responsible Gaming, which can be found by scrolling to the bottom of the app, users can set personalized play limits. From this page, you can set pre-commitment limits on how much can be deposited in a set time, ranging from 1, 7 or 30 days. You can also define time-based limits, a cool-off period and a self-exclusion period lasting from one to five years.
Points Bet History
PointsBet launched its first sportsbook in early 2017 in Australia and has since developed a growing presence in New Jersey. They set out with the goal of offering more markets per game than the other sportsbook and are living up to that standard, with some games offering over 100 markets. Along with its standard fixed-odds wagering options, they also feature a PointsBetting option that allows users to win more based on how correct their wage was.
