Where is PointsBet legal?
PointsBet Legal States
- New Jersey
Launched: Jan 2019
Pointsbet’s US debut came in January 2019 in America’s number one online sports betting state, New Jersey, where it also established its first US office. In accordance with NJ sports betting law, PointsBet is licensed in the Garden State via its partnership with Meadowlands Racetrack. Bettors in NJ can register and wager freely from the PointsBet mobile app across the state.
Launched: November 2019
In November 2019, Iowa, officially, became legal state number two for Pointsbet. However, a state requirement for in-person registration means that, until January 1, 2021, bettors need to visit PointsBet’s retail sportsbook at Catfish Bend Casino to complete account registration.
Launched: March 2020
Indiana became the company’s third operational state in March 2020, gaining access to the Hoosier State through a long-term partnership with Penn National Gaming. Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg is PointsBet’s local casino partner. State law permits sign-up and mobile wagering across Indiana.
Launched: September 2020
In allegiance with Hawthorne Race Course, PointsBet went live in Illinois in September 2020, just in time for the NFL kick-off. In addition to a mobile app, PointsBet has four retail sportsbook locations around Chicago. With the initial requirement for in-person registration in Illinois now relaxed, bettors can sign-up and wager freely from anywhere in state lines.
Launched: November 2020
PointsBet’s rapid US expansion picked up yet more pace with a launch in Colorado in November 2020, the sportsbook’s fifth operational state. A retail sportsbook will quickly follow at Double Eagle Casino in Cripple Creek, the company’s local partner in CO. Preceding the much-anticipated launch, PointsBet announced downtown Denver as the company’s permanent US headquarters.
Where will PointsBet launch next?
With five states already under its belt, there’s little sign of PointsBet taking slowing up as the company seeks to expand its US footprint further.
The state of Michigan is set to welcome PointsBet, as soon as mobile sports betting officially launches (in late 2020 or early 2021). An exclusive agreement with Lac Vieux Desert Public Enterprise and Finance Commission (LVD), will also see PointsBet roll out its online casino product for the first time.
An agreement with Tioga Downs Casino in New York means PointsBet has access to The Empire State once legal sports betting is approved.
And, though still unconfirmed, Virginia is another state where PointsBet is widely expected to launch. The company’s rapid US expansion and growing popularity amongst US bettors will almost certainly see PointsBet awarded one of the twelve sports betting licenses up for grabs in VA.
