What To Expect From PointsBet Sportsbook When It Launches In Massachusetts

Written By Caleb Tallman on September 8, 2022

The time is getting closer and closer to when sports bets can be placed in Massachusetts. With state legislators beating the buzzer, sports betting legislation was passed earlier this summer. Some final rules and regulations are still being implemented, but it appears that Massachusetts sports betting is right around the corner.

Over 40 sportsbooks have already expressed interest in operating in the state. One of these operators is PointsBet Sportsbook, which has quickly become one of the country’s best sportsbooks.

Here is what you can expect from them as soon as sports betting gets the green light in Massachusetts. 

When Will PointsBet Be Live In Massachusetts?

There is still a lot up in the air surrounding the implementation of all necessary regulatory aspects of Massachusetts sports betting. The process is likely to take some time, but many in power in Massachusetts are pushing for the state’s sports betting launch to be before the end of the football season. That would mean a launch at the end of 2022 or the beginning of 2023.

Public meetings have been set for September 8th to determine what could be done to potentially speed up parts of the process, allowing for a quicker launch. 

PointsBet is one of the more prominent operators in the country, and it has frequently been among the first sportsbooks to launch in other states where sports betting has already been rolled out. In Massachusetts, PointsBet will likely be ready to roll on launch day whenever that date is officially set.

Potential PointsBet Launch Promos

Having watched PointsBet launch in other states, it is likely that whatever national welcome offer is happening at the time will be the same or similar to what will be offered in Massachusetts.

The current welcome offer for PointsBet users is a two-bet, $2,000 value, risk-free bet combo. The first bet is a risk-free fixed odds bet up to $500. Meaning if you lose your first fixed odds wager up to $500, you will receive a betting credit equal to the amount lost. 

The second part is a risk-free $1,500 PointsBetting bet. You may ask what a PointsBetting Bet is? It is essentially a multiplier of how much a bettors can win or how much a bettor can lose in a wager. For example, if you bet a favorite on the spread (-3), and they win by 5, you will get two times the amount you would have originally won. This is because your team won by two points over the spread. The same is said for losing it, though. If your team loses by a certain amount over the spread, you then lose the multiple of your money. Bettors at PointsBet can predetermine the cap they want to set for how much they can lose, but it also caps how much they can win.

The PointsBet Mobile App

The PointsBet app is solid and has an easy-to-use design, making it convenient for both new and experienced bettors alike. One great perk of the app is its speed and the fact that you can quickly place live bets, including same game parlays. It is always nice to not have to worry about the bet processing in time. 

With multiple deposit and withdrawal methods as well as quick payouts, users have had good things to say about the PointsBet platform. It is sure to add to the exciting Massachusetts sports betting scene once it launches in the Bay State.
