PointsBet has teamed up with market leader supplier Evolution Gaming to introduce a live dealer casino for players in New Jersey.  The brand has offered online sports betting and unique PointsBetting markets in the Garden State since January 2019. It operates on the license of The Meadowlands – the home of the New York Giants and the New York Jets – along with FanDuel. 

PointsBet branched out by launching an online casino in New Jersey in July 2021, operating on the master license of Bally’s Atlantic City, and now it has expanded its offering further by adding a live dealer casino section. 

A Comprehensive Live Casino 

PointsBet customers in New Jersey can now venture into a live dealer section of the mobile app and the desktop site. 

The section features Blackjack, Infinite Blackjack, American Roulette, American Auto Roulette, American Lightning Roulette, Three Card Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, and Speed Baccarat tables, all run by professional dealers in Evolution Gaming’s dedicated studio. 

It also has Dreamcatcher, which has emerged as the most popular game show-style title among many U.S. bettors. 

Last month, PointsBet added a live dealer section to its app and website in Michigan, and it has now followed suit in New Jersey. 

“Every market offers new opportunities and technology challenges, and we are incredibly proud of our team for positioning us to launch live casino in New Jersey,” said Manjit Gombra Singh, PointsBet’s president of product and technology. “Our proprietary technology stack gives us an edge that our competitors are unable to match, and the ability to provide more options as we continue to deliver our services throughout the U.S. and Canada.” 

PointsBet will continue to expand its live gaming options in the weeks ahead. It expects to have branded tables available soon. 

PointsBet Gathers Momentum 

PointsBet is an Australian company, but it has a U.S. headquarters in Denver and an office in Jersey City. It has emerged as one of the top five sports betting operators in some states. Alongside traditional, fixed odds wagering, it offers PointsBetting, which is akin to financial spread betting. 

You can buy or sell at the upper or lower end of a spread, and your profit or loss is determined by the difference between the price you bought or sold at and the result. 

PointsBet offers online sports betting in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Virginia, and West Virginia, but online casino gaming is only available in Michigan and New Jersey. 

If you sign up for a new casino account, you can earn a 200% refund on any losses you incur in your first 72 hours of play. The refund will take the form of site credit, which can be used on slots, and it can go up to a maximum of $800. 

You can also claim $2,000 in risk-free sports bets – up to $500 on a fixed-odds market, and up to $1,500 on a PointsBetting market. 

The casino currently features a smaller selection of slots and table games than you will find at rivals like BetMGM, but it has already compiled a strong selection of classic slots like Cleopatra and Irish Magic, plus some newer video slots and Megaways titles.  

The table games section features Blackjack, Multi-Hand Blackjack, Roulette, and Baccarat, and there are various video poker titles too. 

The selection of casino games is expected to expand in future, but it is a strong start for PointsBet.
