PointsBet Sportsbook NY Review
PointsBet is not a native of these shores, hailing from Australia where it launched in 2017. Its rapid success with sports bettors Down Under has powered its decision to enter the U.S. market too, bringing with it the chance for American bettors in NY to enjoy its points betting markets in addition to more traditional fixed-odds sports betting. Points betting, if you’re not yet au fait with it, offers a more volatile way to play the markets and is neatly summarized by PointsBet itself as “the more you’re right, the more you win; the more you’re wrong, the more you lose.” Every ‘point’ the final outcome exceeds the offered point on that event (for example every yard beyond the forecast passing yards for a given quarterback) becomes a multiple of your stake that you win.
The risk is that every point under the target becomes a multiplier of your initial stake that you must pay. The risk / reward profile of points betting clearly is better suited to bettors who know their sports, but as mentioned earlier PointsBet does offer traditional fixed-odds markets if you’re not yet confident to play for points!

Layout & Usability
As a recent entrant into the sport betting market, PointsBet has had the advantage of studying the form of rival sportsbooks to create a modern and highly functional design for its site. It’s also gone for the trend towards darker designs, making the overall impact feel lean, mean and moody (in a good way). The markets on offer are a comprehensive choice of both domestic and international options covering a huge range of in-play and future betting opportunities, augmented with some very decent promotions to reward loyalty and new members alike. Total newbies also should appreciate the excellent built in Betting Academy sections if a little tutoring in the ways of wise sports betting is needed! Another neat feature for more advanced bettors is PointBet’s Name A Bet service, available via Twitter, which will take requests for as yet unlisted markets and can price it up if the request’s accepted.
PointsBet also scores highly with us for ensuring its mobile apps exact replicate the full service of the desktop site, with a native Android App available direct from its website, and the iOS version downloadable from the Apple’s App Store. Mobile devices and sports betting go together like mac and cheese, so getting this right is important to us . . . and PointsBet definitely get it right.

PointsBet may well be a newcomer to the legal US sportsbook market, but boy does it make the weight. This is a very elegant, highly competitive sportsbook for the digital age with the extra lure of points betting for savvy players looking for the challenge of bigger rewards (and it must be noted, bigger risks) to test their sporting knowledge. As they would say in its native Australia, it’s a beaut.
