About PointsBet

With their unique type of wagering called PointsBetting, PointsBet is an Australian business that is shaking things up in the US online betting industry.

Most bettors are familiar with platform offers and totals betting in addition to fixed odds betting. They offer dynamic payments based on margins of success, based on the principle of "the more you bet correctly, the more you win."

Even without this intriguing innovation, PointsBet's betting app and online sportsbook provide an easy-to-use and exciting platform for traditional sports betting. The company is dedicated to providing fixed odds at a fair price, and they have a variety of continuous promotions and bonuses.

Yes, PointsBet is legal in Maryland, and went live on November 23, 2022. The state has finally legalized online sports betting in Maryland, and the bill has passed both the House and the Senate. While the initial law originated in Maryland's House of Representatives, it was the Senate's modified version that received final approval. The Senate and House both decided on Monday, April 12th, 2021, to enact the bill and establish the rules for sports betting.

The bill is one of the most significant ever passed in the United States. It provides for the licensing of a staggering 60 online sportsbooks and 30 retail licenses.

Sports teams, the six major commercial casinos, and secondary licenses for minor enterprises such as pubs, restaurants, fairs, and small sporting venues are among the retail licenses.

PointsBet offers unique wagering types that aren't accessible anywhere else. However, most standard betting choices will still be available to bettors. At PointsBet in Maryland, these are the most popular types of bets:

  • Spreads. A bet on a sports game's winning margin is known as a point spread.
  • Team totals. In the field of betting, "team totals" refers to betting on how many points a team will score over the course of a specific length of time, such as the entire game or a half/quarter of play.
  • The first player to score. In football, first goalscorer betting is essentially a wager on who will score the very first goal of the match.
  • Half-time/full-time. Halftime/full-time betting is when you predict the team leading at halftime and which team will be leading at the end of the game.
  • The first team to score. The first team to score in a game of football, soccer, or any other sport is simply the first team to score a goal. It makes no difference if the goal is scored in the first or last minutes of the game.
  • Player Futures. Futures bets are bets on events like which team will be champions or who will win the MVP award. Longer-term results and outcomes determine these bets, normally resolved at the end of a season or tournament. You can, for example, bet on a player's shooting percentage, completion percentage, and the number of minutes they play before scoring a given number of points over the season.

PointsBet betting app in Maryland

The PointsBet betting app in Maryland is available for iOS and Android smartphones. It's available on the App Store and Google Play Store, but the easiest way to get the most recent version is to go to PointsBet's website.

PointsBet's iOS app has a slick and responsive interface. PointsBet looks to have worked out all the problems in the Australian market long ago and has now been introduced as a sophisticated mobile betting app in the United States.

When users first open the Maryland sports betting app, they are presented with a list of highlighted betting markets as well as other navigation choices. Users may rapidly move between different sports, in-play betting, promotions, and account settings from the app's homepage.

The PointsBet app gives you access to all of the betting choices available on the website. In addition, real-time game monitors and live-streaming footage for select events allow bettors to stay up to date on the action.

Downloading the app on iPhone

The PointsBet iOS app is available in two ways:

  1. Go to the PointsBet website and scroll down the page of the website to the 'Mobile App' section, where you'll find two alternatives. You'll be routed to the App Store after clicking the Apple Store logo, where you can download the PointsBet App.
  2. You can go straight to the iOS App Store on your smartphone and search for 'PointsBet' in the search box. This will take you straight to the app, where you can start the download by clicking the 'Install' option.

Downloading the app on Android

If you're an Android user, you'll have to put in a little more effort than iOS users because you'll have to access the site directly from your smartphone browser instead of going to the App Store. The PointsBet site should provide some simple instructions as well as a link to begin the download for Android users.

Once you have the file, double-click it to open it and then select Install. To download the app without problems, make sure you have the "Unknown sources" download setting activated on your device.

If you opt to install the Mobile app on your smartphone, make sure your software is up to date, and if necessary, upgrade it.

Deposit methods

You can fund your PointsBet account via the online betting site or the PointsBet app. PointsBet, unlike most other online sportsbooks in the United States, does not yet allow eWallets such as PayPal.

Customers can expect seamless transactions via PointsBet and their preferred financial institution. In all areas where it operates, PointsBet is a fully legal company.

The following methods of depositing are acceptable at PointsBet:

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Online banking
  • ACH/e-Check
  • PayNearMe
  • Paypal
  • Trustly

Withdrawal methods

PointsBet's withdrawal choices are considerably more limited, as many US betting markets do not accept reverse credit card charges as a payment method. Unless they have signed up for the PointsBet prepaid card, bettors are only able to use ACH or bank transfer directly into their checking account.

You can transfer money from your PointsBet betting account to the card right away. It can then be used to make purchases everywhere that MasterCard is accepted, just like a credit or debit card. You may also use the card to withdraw money from an ATM.

Overall, PointsBet will be more flexible in the future when it comes to banking alternatives. However, for the time being, those are the only means of withdrawal that are available.

  • Paypal
  • ACH/e-Check
  • Online banking

PointsBet Maryland promos and bonuses

As they grow into the US market, PointsBet has stepped up their betting bonuses in Maryland. There are a variety of bonuses and PointsBet promo codes in MD that are specific to certain sports or seasons, as well as a rewards program and a referral bonus that are always available.

Read more about the most interesting promos below:

Referral bonus

Bringing your friends into the game at PointsBet pays off. You will get a one-of-a-kind promotional code to share with friends. If they sign up for PointsBet, you will get a special bonus in the form of a free bet, more bonus money in your account, or something similar. When you're logged in, go to My Account and look for your unique referral code.

Daily boost odds

Every day, PointsBet offers increased or boosted odds on a number of different picks. In fact, the breadth of these promotions is a big reason why PointsBet is a better deal than most other sportsbooks.

You can use odds enhancers from PointsBet on entire sports categories or specific wager kinds. When NFL futures odds are boosted, for example, they may move from -150 to +100.

Parlay insurance

Online betting sites and betting apps frequently offer parlay insurance. PointsBet's offer is significantly better than those offered by direct competitors.

When only one leg of a parlay with at least four picks fails, PointsBet will reimburse up to $25. You will get the full amount you initially bet up to $25 if you hit three out of four.

No juice NFL lines

That's right, you read it accurately. During the 2019 NFL season, PointsBet gave away no juice on all point spreads. The cost a bookmaker charges to process your bet is known as juice, and it's always included in the odds.

Because of the no juice NFL promotion, lines that would normally be available at -110 were instead available at +100. Every game received this promotion. The bottom line is that, if they continue to provide this incentive in future NFL seasons, PointsBet is by far the most affordable sportsbook for NFL spread betting.

Early payouts

Not to be mistaken with the cash-out early feature, which allows you to call bets before they finish. The Early Payouts offer pays out prematurely at the original odds when your team scores a set number of points.

This offer changes depending on the bet and sport, but it always applies to fixed-odds straight bets. For example, PointsBet will pay out pre-game moneyline hockey bets if your team leads by two goals.

PointsBet Rewards

PointsBet MD has a simple rewards program that allows users to make bonus bets by wagering more on the site. Over time, you'll accumulate points, and you need 100 points to get $1.00 in bonus bet credit.

Remember that these bonus bets only have a 1x rollover requirement. You can withdraw any wins after you've bet the amount once.

After everything is said and done, PointsBet has some of the best promos in the industry, and they've recently added a free-to-play Pick6 game with cash prizes to add to the excitement.
