The Australian gaming giant has entered into an agreement with the Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians to provide online and mobile sports wagering and gaming (casino) in the State of Michigan.
PointsBet launched in 2017. They entered the American market in January of 2019 in an agreement with The Meadowlands in East Rutherford, N.J. Since then, PointsBet has added online operations in Indiana, Iowa and most recently, earlier this month in Colorado.
The intriguing part of the latest PointsBet agreement is that it suggests that they will provide an online casino app to their Michigan operation. Known specifically for sports betting, last summer PointsBet entered a 20-year partnership agreement with gaming giant Penn National, known for their HollywoodCasino.com app.
PointsBet is known for their innovative style of operating a sportsbook, so it will be interesting to see what sort of innovations they will offer as they enter into the online casino game.
For example, they launched PointsBetting, a style of high-reward, high-risk wagering that is unique to them. With this wager, If your bet wins by one point (or unit), you would win 1x your bet amount (stake). If your bet wins by two units, you win 2x the stake. If your bet wins by 10 units, you win 10x stake. Conversely if you lose by one unit, you would lose 1x your stake. Lose by 10 units, and you’ll lose 10x the stake.

Sign up with PointsBet and you’ll be eligible to get up to a $100 refund (in free bets) if your first fixed odds bet loses.
