Is PointsBet legal in California?

Right now, PointsBet is not legal in California. California hasn't approved legal sports betting.

The 2022 legislative session in CA will be crucial in how the state moves forward with plans for legal sports betting but given PointBet’s success and countrywide appeal, we wouldn't be surprised to see PointsBet feature heavily in any bidding process for a CA online sports betting license.

Is PointsBet legal in Texas?

No, at this moment legal sports betting in Texas doesn't exist, which means PointsBet has no way to legally operate in Texas.

However, 2022 is shaping up to be a big year for many states considering sports betting bills and few come any bigger than Texas. Like CA, it’s thought should one of the proposals come to pass, late 2022 or early 2023 could be a potential timeframe for what will become one of the most lucrative sports betting markets in the US.

PointsBet Notable Dates

  • September 2022 - PointsBet launched in its eleventh state, Kansas, on the state's first day of legal sports betting.
  • January 2022 - PointsBet launches in Pennsylvania, PointsBet's 10th state of operation.
  • January 2022 - PointsBet goes live in New York, making it the sixth online sportsbook to launch in New York.
  • January 2019 - PointsBet officially goes live in its first US state, New Jersey.
