PointsBet Announces Good Karma Payout on DUKE vs. UNC Game

February 21, 2019

EXCHANGE PLACE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 21, 2019--Top-tier sportsbook operator PointsBet today announced a Good Karma Payout in response to last night’s Duke vs UNC game, after Zion Williamson played just 33 seconds before leaving the game with a sprained knee. PointsBet’s Good Karma Payout has refunded all Duke spreadline, moneyline, Zion booster bets and PointsBetting spread bets in the form of bonus bets as part of the payout.

Good Karma Payout, which provides bettors relief in the event of unlikely circumstances that sway the fate of the game, is yet another feature in PointsBet’s offering that proves the company has the back of the bettor. The sportsbook is also offering refunds to sports fans who backed Duke via other sportsbooks and didn’t receive refunded wagers on the game . Bettors will just need to sign up with code KARMA and send PointsBet their bet slip through social media to receive up to $100 in bonus bets.

“The Karma Kommittee is here to stay,” said PointsBet U.S. CEO Johnny Aitken. “PointsBet is committed to providing our customers with new and exciting offers no matter the outcome of each game. We will continue to issue Good Karma Payouts, as well as explore other innovative avenues we can take to drive value for our customers.”

PointsBet previously introduced the Karma Kommittee and implemented the Good Karma Payout last month after widespread outrage followed the NFL’s now notorious blown pass interference no-call in the NFC Championship game that sent the Los Angeles Rams to the Super Bowl. The Duke payout represents the 6th official ruling of the PointsBet Karma Kommittee.

PointsBet recently announced the launch of its eagerly anticipated sportsbook, building on its reputation as the fastest growing betting company in Australia, and brings its sports expertise, high-tech app, and inimitable PointsBetting product to the U.S. betting market. To begin betting, visit www.PointsBet.com. New customers will receive a free $25 bonus bet (no deposit required). In addition, new users will be given the opportunity to place two risk-free bets, with coverage up to $1,000. Customers will have up to $500 in losses covered for both their first traditional wager and their first PointsBetting wager, designed to give bettors a chance to try out PointsBet’s signature offering risk-free.
