If you haven’t heard about it already, PointsBet is probably the most unique sports betting sites available in the US today. 

Originally developed in Australia, PointsBet entered the US market after gaining backing from NBC sport. As well as traditional types of sports wagering, PointsBet has also offers spread betting, which is a unique type of betting that marries sports wagering with influences from the stock market and the world of financial investment. PointsBet is currently legally available in New Jersey, Illinois and Iowa.

As most of you will probably already know by now, mobile and online sports betting was launched in New York on January 8. A total of five sportsbooks are now available in NY, with a further four set to join them.

So can New Yorkers expect to get legal access to PointsBet anytime soon?

The PointsBet Sportsbook isn’t available in the Empire State right now, but it is set to join the current five New York sports betting sites very, very soon. Four sportsbooks were approved in time to go live in New York when mobile sports wagering officially launched on January 8. These four founding fathers were then joined by BetMGM on January 17.

PointsBet has already been named as one of four more online sportsbooks that have been pre-approved and will 100% launch sometime in early 2022. PointsBet NY is ready to go, all we’re waiting for is the New York State Gaming Commission to give their seal of approval and they will have the green light to launch!

So when can we expect to see PointsBet NY go live? 

We don’t know for sure, the only thing we know is that you won’t have to wait too long. No official launch date has been confirmed by PointsBet, but we are expecting an announcement from them imminently. When that announcement is made, CaptainGambling will be the first to let you know - so bookmark this page and watch this space!

According to reports, PointsBet and the other three sportsbooks that have been approved for NY sports betting will all go live in time for the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 13. We only had to wait just over a week for BetMGM to join the first four sportsbooks. In the worst case, we’ll still only have to wait a matter of weeks until PointsBet goes live in NY. In the best case - a matter of days.


There are five sportsbooks currently available in NY, you can use our guide to find out how to open a sportsbook in NYC.
