PointsBet sportsbook has all of the expected features of a reputable sportsbook. However there are some unique features to the Australian-based operator that deserve special attention.
Points betting, traditionally known as spread betting (in Europe and Australia) is unique to PointsBet in the US. It is a high-risk, high-reward option where bettors can win or lose more based on the outcome of their wager.
In PointsBet’s own words, the more you’re right, the more you win. It should be noted that bettors can set limits to control their maximum risk and reward before placing a bet.
PointsBetting is only available on selected fixed-odds markets. For example, if you were to take the Over on the Milwaukee Bucks scoring 110 in an NBA fixture and they score 130, you would win 20x your stake (130-110). However if they only scored 105, you would lose 5x your stake (110-105).
Live same-game parlay
PointsBet is currently the lone US sportsbook to offer its bettors live, in-game parlay betting on NFL and NBA games. One can create live same game parlays during timeouts, halftime, or breaks in the action.
Regular, same-game parlays are easy to place with PointsBet. At the time of writing, they allow same game parlays to be placed on all MLB, NBA, NFL games, with more options on the way. Locate the game you wish to bet on, select the ‘Same Game Parlay’ tab in the top navigation menu, choose the markets you wish to include, then select ‘add to betslip.’
PointsBet Mobile App Review
Customers can download the PointsBet app for iOS and Android devices on the App Store or Google Play Store. Alternatively you can visit PointsBet.com to download the most up-to-date version. The mobile sportsbook app has all the same sports as the desktop version including features like in-play betting, cash out, secure banking and promotions.
With experience in the Australian market the PointsBet betting app is refined, intuitive and responsive. The front page shows the most popular games happening soon, but bettors can select the “sports” option from the menu to see a complete list of sports and individual betting options.

Bettors can earn points for every wager they place:
- Fixed-odds: 1 reward point for every $5 wagered
