PointsBet Sports Review

About PointsBet 

Given the wealth of other places online where Australians can bet on sport, is there much point in considering a site that was only launched in early 2017? The surprising answer to that question might be "yes", if that site is PointsBet - and we aren't just referring to the fact that it specialises in the highly distinctive gambling format known as spread betting. 


Spread betting, for those who are unaware, is a type of betting where the margin by which you win or lose - not just whether you do win or lose - makes a difference to exactly how much money is taken out of your pocket... or put in your pocket, as the case may be. But the site also offers a pleasing complement of fixed-odds sport and racing products, which could make for a great gambling experience even if your tastes are a little more traditional.

Horse Racing on PointsBet 

There are more than a few things that make it a pleasure to take a punt on the horses at PointsBet. For one thing, you've got no shortage of Australian and New Zealand races to try your luck on, including at such venues as Oamaru, Hobart, Coffs Harbour, the Sunshine Coast and Port Augusta. The assortment of represented international events, however, might be even more impressive, encompassing seemingly everywhere from Woodbine in Canada and Kawasaki in Japan, to Newton Abbot in the United Kingdom and La Teste De Buch in France. 


But it's also the types of bet that really make a difference at PointsBet, with win/place tote bets, doubles, quaddies and Quinella, Exacta, Trifecta and First Four exotics also possible. The black and grey site interface is also easy on the eye and even simpler to use, which applies just as strongly to the nicely optimised mobile app that you can download for your iOS or Android device.

Bottom Line 

A lot of the hype surrounding PointsBet may focus on the spread betting offerings, but the site does provide a more varied and well-rounded experience than that. If you're looking for somewhere that has a modern, innovative feel while also not skimping on opportunities to gamble on horse racing events both in Australia and around the world, we'd recommend PointsBet.
