The launch of the PointsBet comes just in time for the 2022 World Cup, which is the first since sports betting has become a mainstream fixture in the US. PointsBet users will have the opportunity to tap into new unveiled Soccer Lightning Bets, which include Free Kick Awarded, Goal Scored, Goal Kick Awarded, Shots On Target, and much more.
