Best Bookmakers / PointsBet

PointsBet Review

PointsBet began its operations in 2017 in Australia and became one of the biggest names in that market. Fast-forward to 2019 and PointsBet started conquering the US market with 3 states already available for betting and many more in the works. 

 

It's a simple, no-nonsense sportsbook with sports only as a vertical, comprehensive coverage, cool features to keep you engaged and great popularity in Australia, where they are by far the number one bookmaker.
