Hey Illinois! Get up to $2,000 in risk-free bets from PointsBet!
As you may have heard, Saturday, March 5 is a big day for sports betting in Illinois, as bettors in the state of Illinois are no longer required to register their online sports betting accounts in person.
Don’t worry, if you hadn’t heard, you can find out exactly what difference it will make in our handy explanation here!
Here at Pickswise, we are the No. 1 home of free sports betting picks, as we always look to help make your next bet better. But on top of that, we also like to provide our users with the best possible sportsbook promos and offers.
With Illinois making it easier for bettors to place wagers, we have teamed up with PointsBet Sportsbook to enable you to get up to $2,000 in free bets when you register with the sportsbook. Check it out by clicking the link below:
Under the special promotion, bettors will have any losing first bets with PointsBet refunded 100% — that’s up to $1,500 for Points-betting wagers and $500 for fixed-odds wagers.
How PointsBetting works
As an example, in today’s Blackhawks vs Flyers matchup the game total line for PointsBetting is 6-6.4. If you pick over 6.4 and the game produces a higher total, you would win your unit stake multiplied by each point the game goes over by. For example, if the Blackhawks win 5-4, the total is 9 and you would win 2.6 times your unit stake (9-6.4=2.6). However, if the game ended 3-2, the total would be 5 and you would lose 1.4 times your stake (6.4-5=1.4).
