PointsBet Bags Two Licenses in Pennsylvania
PointsBet Pennsylvania has been granted two operator licenses in sports wagering and interactive gaming by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board via its partnership with Penn National Gaming.
With its two licenses, the global sportsbook operator’s Pennsylvania subsidiary has received the go-ahead to accept sports bets and offer online casino gambling to players in the state.
PointsBet will ride on its existing partnership with NBC Sports in Pennsylvania to promote its content in the region where the media service is based.
In the deal with NBC, PointsBet will have access to various exclusive TV and digital assets owned by the media corporation. Commenting on its agreement with NBC Philadelphia, Kyle Christensen, CMO PointsBet USA, expressed hopes that the deal will play a vital role in its ability to “reach new customers and build brand recognition in this new market.”
We are excited to be inching closer to officially offering PointsBet’s products to sports fans and bettors in Pennsylvania, in partnership with Penn National Gaming. With Pennsylvania ranking among the top five sports betting states in the nation, PointsBet is thrilled to be able to soon establish its presence in this lucrative market, and we are appreciative of the support we’ve received from the state of Pennsylvania and the great people at the Gaming Control Board.
Earlier this month, PointsBet appointed Eric Lee as their new Vice President of DEI and announced that it had become the first sportsbook operator to offer its customers an ‘always on’ service.
