Following January’s launch of online sports betting across the State, PointsBet has unveiled its mobile and digital sports betting product in New York. This latest PointsBet product, a mobile app, becomes the ninth digital sports wagering service launched by the operator to date, with other ‘live’ US States including Colorado, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, New Jersey, Iowa, West Virginia and Virginia.

PointsBet is the fifth operator to be fully approved, with Bally’s Corp, BetMGM, Resorts World and Wynn Resorts to follow.
