The XFL continues to make waves in the sports world, especially in the sports betting industry. The league just announced a new partnership with PointsBet Sportsbook, which was the second large announcement of this kind in February.
PointsBet will now join FoxBet as an authorized gaming operator of the league. Financial terms were not disclosed with the initial announcement, but this is a deal that should work out quite nicely for both sides.
Pointsbet Sportsbook is originally from Australia, but it has been making headlines in the United States as they continue to grow and expand. The global sportsbook has emerged as an industry leader, and this is another positive step for the company.
The PointsBet website and sports betting app will now feature odds and lines for all XFL games for the remainder of the season.
Not only will PointsBet Sportsbook now be advertised as one of the official providers of the XFL, but there are also some other perks that they will be receiving as well. PointsBet will be given access to official league data that they can then use at their sportsbook.
The XFL will also provide PointsBet with some exclusive content that they can use for whatever purpose they would like on their online and mobile platforms. The XFL will help promote the sportsbook by integrating their information into their weekly digital content.
This agreement went into effect during Week 4 of the XFL regular season, which was just completed at the end of February. The XFL will continue to run through the end of April, with the championship game set to be played on April 26.
PointsBet plans to market the XFL over the next few weeks and will offer some promotional opportunities to its customers surrounding these games. The XFL has proven to be an extremely entertaining brand of football that has brought in a huge fan base over the first month of their season.
Football is the most popular sport to bet on in the United States, and PointsBet is also trying to take advantage of that with a few more months of football to be played.
PointsBet originally launched in Australia but moved to the United States in 2019. Its US launch date was January 2019, when it was granted a license to operate a mobile sportsbook in the state of New Jersey.
PointsBet has since opened up an online sportsbook in Iowa as well, and it has applied for licenses in other states and is expected to launch in a handful of other states in 2020.
One thing that sets PointsBet Sportsbook apart from the rest of the sportsbooks on the market is its PointsBetting feature. This unique betting style is only offered by PointsBet Sportsbook in the United States, and it has quickly become a fan favorite.
PointsBet has also been able to attract and grow their customer base by offering promotions that are among the best in the industry. It has a mobile app that is available for download on both Android and iOS platforms.
