PointsBet’s strategy for attracting new business is pretty clear: GO BIG!

The sportsbook is offering a massive sign-up bonus for new customers. Anyone who signs up this week will get $2,000 risk-free bets as a PointsBet welcome bonus.

Below, see how to claim this offer along with further details on how it works.

Claim PointsBet Bonus for $2,000 in Risk-Free Bets

First, in order to claim this bonus, click on the PointsBet banner directly above, complete the sign-up forms, and finally make a deposit. If you follow those steps, you have already claimed the bonus.

In practice, this PointsBet promo actually takes the form of two separate risk-free bets.

The first is a straightforward $500 risk-free bet on any fixed-odds market at PointsBet. (“Fixed-odds market” is just PB’s way of saying a normal bet that you could make at any generic sportsbook.)

The second is a $1,500 risk-free bet on any of PointsBet’s patented “PointsBetting” options. (More on this in the next section.)

The first fixed-odds wager you place at PointsBet qualifies as your first ($500) risk-free bet. The first PointsBetting wager you place qualifies as your second ($1,5000) risk-free bet. If either or both of those wagers are graded as a loss, your stake will be refunded up to the specified amounts.

How Does “PointsBetting” Work?

You wouldn’t know what PointsBetting is unless you’ve used PointsBet before, and you’re only on this page if you haven’t.

PointsBetting is PointsBet’s system for rewarding bettors who are more correct (and penalizing those who are more wrong). In brief, the payouts on certain spread and totals bets increase the more your wager wins by. For instance, if you bet on the Chicago Bulls to cover as 2.5-point favorites and they end up winning by 15, you would be paid out a lot more than if they had won by 4.

But be careful, because the converse is also true: if the Bulls lose by 15 in our hypothetical, you lose a lot more money than if they had lost by 4.

You can read about it in more detail on the PointsBet app. For present purposes, all you need to know is that it’s an exciting new spin on sports betting that rewards smart picks (and punishes terrible ones).


Who Is Eligible to Claim PointsBet Welcome Bonus?

This PointsBet bonus is exclusively a welcome bonus, meaning it is only available to new PointsBet customers making a first-time deposit.

In addition, the standard sports-betting restrictions apply. This offer is only open to customers who are 21 years of age or older at the time of registration.

Lastly, customers must be physically present in one of the following states: Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, or West Virginia.

As long as you meet those three criteria, you can claim this PointsBet bonus today! And hey, here’s another handy link for you to click on, if you haven’t already.
