Pointsbet Review 2019

It’s not often that something truly new and unique is offered to Australian punters but Pointsbet very much bucks that trend. By introducing spread betting to Australia they have opened a brand new avenue to punters.

With traditional fixed odds, you win the same no matter what score the team you back wins by. In spread betting, your winnings increase the more your bet beats a line (or spread) which is set by the bookmakers. Be careful though, as the more your bet loses, the more you stand to lose so you can end up losing more than your original stake.

Pointsbet make it easy to manage your risk by allowing you to set limits on the amount of money you’re prepared to lose and they also offer personalised account managers which is a great incentive to open an account.

Away from the spread betting and Pointsbet do a good job with their fixed odds offering. The front page isn’t as visually appealing as some other bookies but you quickly get used to the way it looks and once you do the market depth and value that Pointsbet offer is impressive.

For example, there are over 150 markets to choose from for the biggest AFL matches plenty of options for every major sport.

Keep an eye on the ‘Elite Odds’ promotions as well. In these, Pointsbet enhance the odds of certain outcomes to give you a chance of winning big from their spread betting offering.

Pointsbet Mobile App

Pointsbet have had an Android app for quite a while now. The well designed and good looking app allows customers to avail themselves of all the spread betting and fixed odds markets you’ll find on the main Pointsbet site.

While Android customers have been able to bet on the move with Pointsbet for a while, it took a while for iOS users to have the same opportunity. Thankfully, the Pointsbet developers got down to work and there are now apps for both iPhone and iPads.

It’s been well worth the wait as both apps are similarly quick and easy to use. The apps are also packed with features and yet the design means they appear uncluttered so navigating to the correct markets is a breeze.
