PointsBet Sportsbook arrived in Pennsylvania on Feb. 7. After a three-day testing period, the app is now live as of Feb. 10, just in time for the main event of sports betting, the Super Bowl.
Philadelphia sports fans should be plenty familiar with PointsBet thanks to its partnership with NBC Sports and Sixers legend Allen Iverson.
“PointsBet is the best in the business, and it’s exciting to be able to bring the top-rated sports betting app to Pennsylvania, especially the enthusiastic and supportive fans in Philadelphia!” said PointsBet brand ambassador Allen Iverson. “I know speed and agility, and PointsBet’s superior technology and live same game parlay capabilities for NBA and NFL games are where it’s at.”

PointsBet PA online sportsbook details
PointsBet is the 14th online sports betting app in Pennsylvania. The sportsbook arrived in PA through its partnership with Hollywood Casino York.

Unique features at Points Bet
Points Betting: If your bet wins by one point, you win 1X your bet amount. If your bet wins by 2X, you win 2X your wager. However, if you lose by 1 point, you lose 1x your bet amount, if your team loses by 10 points, you lose 10X times your bet.
No rollover requirements: When using a deposit bonus, you only have to wager your deposit bonus once, before you can withdraw.
Name a bet: Consider PointsBet the sportsbook that takes requests. If you have an idea for a bet (Will Embiid score over 25+ and get 10+ rebounds? Over/Under Jalen Reagor dropped passes. Will the Phillies bullpen blow the save tonight?), you can suggest it.
Partial cash payout: Thinking of cashing out a bet early, but not sure? A partial cash payout lets you settle your bet and collect some of your winnings early or save some of your stake from a bet that is losing.
