PointsBet has taken its first sportsbook bet in Pennsylvania, following authorisation by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) for a soft launch in the State.

This represents the Company’s 10th online sportsbook operation in the United States, following successful launches in New Jersey, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Colorado, Michigan, West Virginia, Virginia, and New York.

In accordance with PGCB requirements, PointsBet will operate in a soft launch environment for three days, and anticipates commencing full operations and marketing ahead of Super Bowl LVI.

“PointsBet launching in our 10th U.S. jurisdiction represents a very proud moment for our company, and I am especially grateful to our technology and compliance teams for their ongoing dedication and commitment” commented PointsBet Group CEO and Managing Director Sam Swanell. “The PointsBet team is excited to continue to prove our reputation and consistent ability to deliver a world-class experience.”
