Pointsbet Brings Online Sports Betting to Illinois

In June of 2020, sports betting officially went live in the state of Illinois. By August, PointsBet Illinois had joined the ranks of a small but select group of online/mobile bookmakers that have been providing sports betting services to Illinois residents. PointsBet Illinois is licensed and regulated by the Illinois Gaming Board.

The best way to describe the website and mobile app is to point out that both options follow a standard sportsbook format. The home landing page features future odds markets and upcoming games of interest. From the sports betting navigation bar that is located towards the top, bettors can gain access to dozens of betting markets and options.

Mobile gamblers can secure their mobile apps through the Apple App Store for iOS devices and Google Play for Android devices.

Betting Markets

As a full-service online bookmaker, PointsBet puts forth a very comprehensive list of betting markets. It should surprise no one that the primary sports betting focus falls on U.S. sports and leagues like the NHL, NFL, NBA, MLB, WNBA, NCAA BB (Men's and Women's), and NCAA FB. The list of available international betting markets includes major soccer leagues from all over the world, rugby, cricket, Aussie Rules Football, the Canadian Football League, and major international sporting events like World Cup Soccer and the Olympics. Finally, equal opportunity sports bettors can enjoy betting on sports like tennis, MMA, boxing, golf, and boxing.

Betting Options

To compete in a highly competitive sports betting market, bookmakers have to make sure their customers are getting access to the betting options they enjoy the most.

PointsBet Illinois offers a comprehensive list of betting options, a list the includes fixed odds (money line) betting, point spread betting, straight bets, parlays, prop bets, teasers, live-action in-game betting, and futures odds betting. By comparison to other online bookmakers, PointsBet offers reasonable betting limits.

Bonuses and Promotions

With no fewer than 10 different promotions showing in recent weeks, it's clear that PointsBet isn't afraid to offer its bettors plenty of extra value for their wagering dollars. While some of the intermittent betting promotions are sure to draw interest, the feature attraction is the PointsBet Welcome Bonus. The bonus provides new bettors with a "risk-free" fixed odds bet of up to $500 and a "risk-free" pointsbetting wager of up to $1,500. The refunds are deposited as free wagers.

Banking Options

For bettor convenience, PointsBet provides the following banking options: online banking, PayPal, and major credit cards (VISA and MasterCard).

Final Thoughts

PointsBet came to Illinois with a solid reputation. The website while generic is also reliable and highly functional. It's easy to recommend this bookmaker based on solid promotions and betting menus.
