Recently, PointsBet was announced as a recipient of a New York mobile sports betting license. Now that PointsBet will be making its sports betting debut in New York, NYers need to know about the operator. So, we can take a peek at how PointsBet operates in other states to see how PointsBet NY will work.

PointsBet Welcome Offer

Currently, we do not know for sure what a PointsBet welcome offer will look like in New York. But, no worries, as we can look at the current welcome offer in other states to see what the new offer could look like. However, it is important to keep in mind that the offer could be different when PointsBet launches in New York.

Right now, PointsBet currently offers 2 risk-free bets up to $2,000 to new users in other states. In order to redeem the offer, users need to use the bonus code VIBONUS. Customers do need to keep in mind that there will be terms and conditions that they will need to meet in order to receive and keep the promo code rewards.

A risk-free bet is a bet where the user will be reimbursed if their bet ends up losing. So, it can be a great way for a user who is not used to sports betting to get acclimated. Hopefully, New York users will receive the same or a comparable offer from PointsBet.

As we said above, PointsBet has received a New York mobile sports betting license. Which means, users in New York will have to do their sports betting with PointsBet through the PointsBet app. But, with the PointsBet app already launched in other states, this should not be a problem.

The PointsBet app in other states will probably look similar to the app that launches in New York. Right now, the PointsBet app is only available for Android users as well as iOS/iPhone users. Users will need to have an updated operating system on their device as well as sufficient available memory to use the app.

Customers will be able to use the PointsBet app from wherever as long as they are within the geographical boundaries of the state of New York. They should be able to access the same features that are available on PointsBet’s desktop site. For instance, they should be able to place their wagers and check the status of already placed bets.
