PointsBet launches online gaming in New Jersey


Online gaming operator PointsBet has launched its igaming platform within the state of New Jersey, having received clearance from the New Jersey Department of Gaming Enforcement to do so. 

The New Jersey launch follows on from PointsBet debuting its first igaming offering in Michigan back in May. 

PointsBet now has igaming market access in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan and West Virginia – states which the operator estimate can bring in revenue of a combined $3.50bn per year at maturity.

PointsBet CEO and managing director Sam Swanell said: “We are thrilled to be able to expand our igaming presence in the United States and bring our proprietary online casino product to the robust New Jersey market.

“The continued growth of our igaming presence further advances our ability to acquire and retain premium clients, complimenting our existing sports wagering products.”

PointsBet has also been able to secure sports betting market access in Arizona following its deal with Cliff Castle Casino Hotel. The operator’s deal with Riverboat Group also opened up the Maryland betting market.

In addition, PointsBet earlier this week announced the latest appointment to its Canada division, as Scott Vanderwel joins PointsBet Canada as chief executive officer effective from 17 August.
