In 2017 PointsBets was founded in Australia. PointsBet has since managed to work its way over to the US and has become one of the country’s leading sports betting sites. 

PointsBet sportsbook was launched in the US in January of 2019, after signing a deal with Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford and has since become one of the fastest-growing online sportsbooks in the country and is rapidly expanding. 


PointsBet app differentiates itself through its distinctive high-risk, high-reward PointsBetting format. PointsBet was not overselling when it originally claimed it would offer more markets than any other sportsbook in the USA. PointsBet mobile often features 250, 300, or more options for individual games. Only the most popular games happening soon are shown on the front page but bettors can select the “sports” option from the bottom menu to see the complete list of sports. From there, users can tap the sport they’re interested in to view all the day’s games and betting markets.
