PointsBet Massachusetts Promo Code & Launch Details
It's official: Massachusetts sports betting is now legal after Gov. Charlie Baker signed the compromised bill into law on August 10. With that out of the way, let's talk about which operators will be launching. One likely to launch is PointsBet Massachusetts.
PointsBet has been one of the best betting apps in the country ever since it entered the U.S. market via New Jersey in 2019. Should PointsBet decide to enter the Bay State, sports bettors will have another fantastic option added to the list of Massachusetts betting apps.
PointsBet Massachusetts is unique in the marketplace thanks to its Points Betting feature, which enables you to win more based on how right you were about your wager. Here's how it works: Bet $10 on the Patriots to cover a 3-point spread. If they win by 13, you win $100. Your wager covered by 10 points, you win 10 times your stake. Use a PointsBet Massachusetts promo code when you sign up to help you get started with Points Betting feature.
However, if the Pats lose by 13, you'd lose $100 on that same $10 bet, so there is some downside as well.
PointsBet Sportsbook launched its sports betting product in Australia in 2017, and quickly became one of the top sports betting sites in that country. It has expanded globally and has positioned itself as one of the best options for bettors in the United States and in Canada, where Ontario sports betting is legal and regulated.
Sports betting in Massachusetts is likely to launch in early 2023, however a timeline has not yet been provided for a launch date. Despite that fact, we expect the state to aim for a launch during the upcoming NFL season because of the popularity of the sport. That being said, a launch closer to Super Bowl 57 is the most realistic outcome given the logistics that go into getting sports betting up and running.
Let's walk you through everything you need to know to get started with Pointsbet Massachusetts should it go live in the state.
How To Bet At PointsBet Massachusetts
We anticipate that PointsBet Massachusetts will be one of the best sports betting sites to prepare for Massachusetts once a launch day is confirmed. And we expect that PointsBet Massachusetts promo code will have a similar welcome offer in Massachusetts to what it currently offers new customers in other states.
To sign up for PointsBet Massachusetts when sports betting goes live in the Bay State, just follow these steps to get started.
- Locate the PointsBet betting app via the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store and hit download
- Register for a new PointsBet Massachusetts Sportsbook account
- Make your first deposit for at least $5
- Receive up to five $100 risk-free bets as a new customer when you use a PointsBet Massachusetts promo code.
How does the risk-free bet offer work at PointsBet (and how could it work at PointsBet Massachusetts)? For the first five days after signing up for a PointsBet account, you can make your first bet of the day risk-free for up to $100. If your bet wins, you get your stake back, plus your winnings. But if your bet loses, you get an equivalent free bet in return.
The free bets given to you will be put into your PointsBet Massachusetts account within 24 hours of settlement. You then get up to seven days to use your free bets at PointsBet MA. Keep in mind that these risk-free bets are for fixed betting markets only and not for use on PointsBetting wagers.
Here are the nuts and bolts of the PointsBet Massachusetts promo code: You get up to five $100 risk-free bets during your first five days of being a PointsBet customer. The minimum bet to qualify is just $0.50 and there are no minimum odds involved. If your bet loses, you will get a risk-free bet equal to your losing stake, worth up to $100 a day.
With the risk-free bet, you can split it up equally into four parts if you so desire (i.e. four $25 free bets instead of just one $100 free bet). Keep in mind that if you win your wager using your free bet, you only get the winnings in return, meaning you will not get the free-bet stake back. We expect these terms to be similar if/when PointsBet Massachusetts goes live.
Most sportsbooks only offer a single risk-free bet, so the fact you get up to five opportunities is great. However, other sportsbooks do offer bigger risk-free bets. For example, you typically get a $1,000 risk-free bet at FanDuel or BetMGM.
With NFL betting starting back up again soon, this could be the perfect welcome offer to use on the New England Patriots.
As far as banking options go at PointsBet MA, we will have to wait and see exactly what deposit and withdrawal methods are offered, but we anticipate online banking, debit/credit cards, ACH/eCheck, PayNearMe, and PayPal. This is based on experience of PointsBet launching in other states.

When the state launches, expect many of the sportsbooks to offer Massachusetts promo codes to new customers. These can vary widely - from risk-free bets to deposit matches - so bookmark that page to get the latest information nearer the launch date.
As for PointsBet Massachusetts, as outlined above and based on recent experience of PointsBet launches in other states, the PointsBet promo code will likely offer new customers up to five risk-free bets to use over five days, each worth a maximum of $100.
Your first bet of the day for the first five days being a PointsBet MA customer is risk-free for up to $100. For example, say you sign up for a PointsBet Massachusetts account and on your first day, you place a $100 wager on the Boston Red Sox to beat the Toronto Blue Jays.
Let’s say the Red Sox lose. Sad face. In this example, you get back a $100 free bet within 24 hours of your bet settling. You'll then have one week to use your free bet. Remember, you can make one risk-free bet per day for the first five days of opening your PointsBet Massachusetts account.
