PointsBet truly is the new kid on the block when it comes to Aussie betting markets.
Tt combines traditional Racing Punting with the new and exciting PointsBetting, to offer one pretty damn superior site in the USA and Australia.
Despite their sub-par live betting menu, Pointsbet, or ‘Pointy’ as it’s so affectionately called, offers all types of traditional team and player prop bets, in addition to pointsbetting, which is a pretty thrilling way to bet.
It’s kind of a new term for Aussies, but considering you’re punting on an American sport, why not do it in an American way?
Pointsbetting is essentially the bread and butter of PointsBet. It’s what makes punting on the Racing Different from any other Aussie bookie out there, and is isn’t for the faint of heart.
If you want to spice things up, Pointsbet is your way to go.
Pointsbetting, on Pointsbet, is taking the spread, total, or prop bet and marking it a variable bet until the end of the game.
The idea in this sense, is that the more correct you are at punting, the more you win and vice versa.
Pointsbet Review – Features
Pointsbet have always been the new kid on the block when it comes to features, and they’re still at the top of their game in this regard.
The colour scheme may not be as eye-catching as other sites, but that’s obviously not too huge of a problem.
It’s also a fantastic brand with welcome offers, and bonuses for any new punter. As well as this, the site and brand itself are extremely reputable, with top-notch security, licensing and legality.
Promos and Sign-Up Bonuses
Sign-Up Bonus – There is no Sign-Up Bonus offered with PointsBet. Unlike many other Aussie Bookies, such as Sportsbet, Ladbrokes and Neds… PointsBet are still yet to jump on the Sign-Up Bonus Train. This is a big miss, as first-time punters are then less likely to join up with PointsBet, with other betting agencies rewarding a first-time deposit.
Bonus Bets – PointsBet do, however, offer Bonus Bets on a number of other markets. Most often, is the placement of a 3+ leg multi. If one leg fails, PointsBet will return the cash in terms of a Bonus Bet. Always check out these promos, they appear on the homepage.
Other Promos – Another good thing about Pointsbet is their value promos for certain events. These usually pertain to combos of disposals in AFL, or tries in the NFL. One market, for example, may be Neale and Boak to combine for a total of 40 disposals at $3. These Value Bets are a great way to get up, as well as being a great promo. Howver, they ususally come with a max bet of $25, which is fairly miniscule at times.
Pointsbet Review – Sports
PointsBet offers a very simple way to bet on a wide range of sports. Which include, but are not limited to:
- Horse Racing
Pointsbet Review – Racing
A very robust racing platform for thoroughbreds, harness racing, and greyhounds. They’ve got a busy futures market with all you could hope for, with the ability to add a runner you want if needed.
All-In markets are available, as well as odds going up quickly for all meets.
There’s also a blackbook feature that allows you to be notified when a horse is next running, which is handy for adding runners that have caught your eye so you don’t miss them.
They’ve also recently added live Sky Racing streaming ability for most local races, which is a big plus if you’re not around a TV screen on raceday.
Pointsbet Review – App

Pointsbet Review – Customer Service
Pointsbet look after their customers with a strong customer service team, including the ability to phone in and efficiently place a live bet.
Points betting itself is a truly unique variable in terms of betting, which has arisen entirely from Pointsbet itself.
In this sense, there is a high-risk, high reward setting which definitely helps punters out in terms of odds. This also makes it entirely niche and different from any other brands.
Now marketed at Aussies, Pointsbet has also made a stamp on USA’s online betting markets. They’re a relatively new player to the market, but they have definitely held their own in comparison with other betting platforms.
