PointsBet Canada has made a point to embrace Canadian culture leading up to its launch.
Now that its sportsbook is available for bettors in Ontario, we’ll see if that cultural immersion and marketing have paid off.
The Australian operator has an online sportsbook in 10 US states. There also will be a coupon if you click through our banner below. With max offers changing so quickly, click below to see what PointsBet has in store for Ontarians today.
Now that it’s launched in Ontario, here are five things to know about PointsBet.
1. It knows and loves Canada
PointsBet Canada gets Canada.
It hired a staff full of Canadians. It has made attempts to be a sports bettor’s home for curling. It has partnered with several Canadian organizations.
And, most famously, the marketing folks at PBC wasted little time in getting someone uniquely Canadian as the face of the operator: The Trailer Park Boys.
2. Points Betting (coming soon?)
OK, now to the nitty-gritty of the app, starting with PointsBet’s most notable feature: Points Betting.
Importantly, Points Betting won’t be available right away in Ontario.
But should it come soon, points betting is a unique form of betting that allows you to multiply your wins (or losses) by the amount you’re right or wrong.
For example, if your bet wins by two points (or units), you’ll win two times your bet amount. If it wins by 10, you’ll win 10 times the amount. Of course, if it loses by 10, you’ll lose at 10 times your wager. So, make sure you can afford it.
Traditional betting markets are available, but Points Betting adds some flair for those who want more action.
3. Easy to use app
PointsBet’s app is very simple to use. It makes finding what to bet on and placing that bet easy for its customers. This brings us to …
4. Great customer service
PointsBet has a live chat to help you resolve issues fast. There are also email and telephone options to settle any problems you may encounter.
In Michigan, representatives have even called new customers after registration to make sure any of their initial questions can be answered right away.
5. Low minimum withdrawals
PointsBet isn’t going to hold onto your money. At $5, you can take your money out up until the point you have almost nothing left.
This way, you don’t have to risk more money just to get your balance to a place that’s eligible for withdrawal.
