It’s prime time for Ohio sports bettors to take advantage of new sign-up offers, and PointsBet Sportsbook is the newest yet.
These promotions are available right now, even though Ohio sports betting doesn’t officially begin until Jan 1.
PointsBet offers $200 in bet credits
PointsBet Sportsbook Ohio joins several other sportsbooks offering pre-launch bonuses in the Ohio. New customers can take advantage of all of the offers before Ohio sports betting officially kicks off.
PointsBet’s first deal offers $200 in bet credits. There is no promo code necessary — just click on the link above and sign up, and the bet credits will be in your account once sports betting is live. The credits will be disbursed in four $50 increments in January.
Not only can you jump on the bet credits from the start, but your account will be ready to place bets as soon as it’s legal to do so.
One important caveat: As with almost all bet credits, the sportsbook does not pay out the bet stake on winnings. So if you place a $20 bet credit to win $15, only the $15 in winnings go back into your account.
The bet credits expire seven days after they are issued, so be sure to get them in.
By signing up early, you ensure your account is ready when PointsBet Sportsbook goes live on Jan. 1. Since New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday, you can sign up now and know you’ll be able to bet on the Bengals or Browns for Week 17 of the NFL season.
PointsBet Ohio early sign-ups get multiple bet credits
PointsBet’s $200 in bet credits is already a fantastic deal for new gamblers in Ohio, but the sportsbook isn’t stopping there.
Gamblers that sign up for PointsBet Ohio can also score five different $100 bet credits. This is the company’s second pre-launch deal to help set bettors off on the right foot in January.
This works a little bit different than PointsBet’s other new promotion.
The $500 in bet credits is sort of like gambling with insurance. You’ll have to deposit into your account with bonus code WELCOME. Then you can place five separate bets up to $100 over five days.
If your bets lose, then PointsBet will credit your account with a $100 bet credit each day to replace your losses.
How to claim your PointsBet Ohio pre-launch offers
Usually, the best online sportsbook offers come before sports betting goes live in a given state. Ohio will be no different, with multiple operators set to compete for your business (and the other nine million Ohioans of legal betting age) from the get-go.
For bettors, that means attention-grabbing offers will continue coming your way, such as PoinsBet’s sign-up deal.
If you are new to the process, signing up for the PointsBet Sportsbook is easy. Most people are able to complete the process in around five minutes. To begin, click the link above near the beginning of this story and claim your new player deal.
From there, PointsBet will ask for some personal information as required by law. All legal and regulated sportsbooks in the U.S. must obtain your name, address and the last four digits of your Social Security Number. This information is used solely for the purpose of verifying that you’re of legal gambling age.
Just a few more clicks stand between you and confirmation of your account’s active status.
Once you’re good to go, continue on with your first qualifying deposit to become eligible for your new sign-up offers.
