PointsBet Announces Exclusive $10,000 Game Day Guarantee for NHL Playoffs, NBA Playoffs, and Entire MLB and NFL Seasons

April 10, 2019

EXCHANGE PLACE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 10, 2019--Top-tier US sportsbook operator PointsBet announced that starting today, the company will guarantee that it will honor a minimum bettowin amount of $10,000 for all customers on game day for every single MLB matchup, all NBA and NHL playoff games, and the NFL Season. PointsBet will guarantee this “to win” amount on all spreadline and moneyline bets starting at 10:00am ET each game day.

The Game Day Guarantee will extend until the end of the NFL Season in 2020, empowering all “sharp” or winning bettors, who are often drastically reduced or banned from betting altogether, with the ability to place large wagers all season long.

Currently, many experienced “sharp” bettors are being limited or restricted outright from wagering by most online NJ sportsbooks, resulting in large amounts of wagering handle remaining off-shore. With the PointsBet Game Day Guarantee, the company intends to bring wagers back into the recently legalized U.S. sports betting market. PointsBet will continue to uphold the highest level of responsible gambling, ensuring the offer will not apply to anyone on the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement’s (NJDGE) restricted lists.

“We’re bookmakers at heart and accepting action from sharp bettors is in our DNA. We are excited to get our guarantee underway and ensure PointsBet is doing its upmost along with offering the best prices to bring money back from off-shore sites into the legalized US market” said PointsBet’s U.S. CEO, Johnny Aitken.

“Any serious sports bettor has to be betting with PointsBet” said professional bettor Bill Krackomberger. “Their prices are the best, and they take on winners without banning accounts or limiting wagers to win $1 or $10, like I’ve seen from other sports betting operators.”

“As a professional gambler, I’ve been disappointed as sportsbooks continue to lower the bar as to what is acceptable behavior towards sharp betting action. However, PointsBet guaranteeing a game day minimum bet raises that bar. Their innovation in New Jersey is setting a standard for other sportsbooks to follow” said professional bettor and NJ resident, Jack Andrews.

PointsBet achieves market differentiation by consistently offering the best prices, most comprehensive betting options, and innovative promotions not seen anywhere else. The $10,000 Game-Day Guarantee represents an extension of that philosophy. As the fastest growing sports betting company, PointsBet will continue to build trust and credibility with bettors of all types while establishing themselves as the choice platform for higher-staking bettors in the U.S.

This announcement comes on the heels of PointsBet’s recent “Good Karma Payout,” in which PointsBet’s Karma Kommittee refunded all UCF bettors during the UCF vs. Duke March Madness game after an unexpected and devastating finish to the game.
