PointsBet - Legal website in the U.S.
PointsBet has launched its proprietary iGaming platform in Michigan in early May 2021.
It took a while, but PointsBet has finally arrived in Michigan. In recent months, PointsBet has been working hard to position itself as one of America's top online sportsbooks. So far, things are looking very good.
Much of the success this bookmaker is having can be attributed to putting forth a nice sports betting platform. Upon hitting the sportsbook home landing page, bettors are greeted with a web page that is highly functional and easy to navigate. Along with some advertising at the top and administrative info at the bottom, bettors get clean and fast access to betting markets.
The website is available for PC users as well as mobile device users through a native mobile app that is compatible with the Apple and Android operating systems.
America's sports bettors demand access to a wide range of betting markets. That is exactly what PointsBet is offering to its sports bettors located all over the country. As a case in point, here are some of the betting markets that are available at PointsBet regularly:
MLB, NBA, NFL, MSL, WNBA, NHL, major college sports, PGA Golf, Motorsports, international soccer leagues, rugby, cricket, darts, pro tennis, and special events like the Olympics, the Super Bowl, and World Cup Soccer.
Along with demanding access to lots of betting markets, Michigan bettors also like having access to lots of betting options. It allows them to take a creative approach to their sports betting. With that in mind, PointsBet Michigan does offer access to all of the standard betting options, which includes straight bets (both money line and point spread), teasers, parlays, proposition bets, alternate lines, in-game wagering, and futures odds betting.
After checking out the bookmaker's betting limits, it is fair to say Michigan bettors at the high end will be satisfied.
Bonuses and Promotions
Much in line with the competition, PointsBet does a good job of making sure its bettors have access to plenty of betting promotions with a heavy emphasis on profit boot bonuses.
The bookmakers welcome bonus is among the best in the state with the bettor getting access to two free bet rebates. The first portion of the promo grants the bettor a 100$ matching free bet if their first fixed odds bet of up to $500 loses. The second portion grants the bettor a 100$ matching free bet if their 1st PointsBetting Bet (special odds) of up to $1,500 loses.
Banking and Customer Service
Banking options include VISA, MasterCard, PayPal, and others. Customer service is available via chat, email, and phone.
Verdict: PointsBet is an Australian bookmaker that is making good headway in the U.S. and certainly worthy of consideration.
