How To Claim Your Risk Free Bets
To register an account with PointsBet New York takes only a few moments. Click the link on this page to go to the PointsBet home page then follow these steps:
- Click on the red “Sign Up” button at the top right of the screen.
- On the first registration page enter your promo code USBR from this article, your name and email address.
- Click continue and fill in your personal details, password and screen name as requested on the rest of the form.
- Finally tick the legal boxes to confirm that you are over 21 and have read the terms and conditions.
- Now you are ready to load your account with funds so you can place real money sports bets.
The cashier is accessed at the top right of the screen. Click through and select a deposit method. There are enough available to suit every NY sports bettor. Remember the amount of your welcome bonus free bets depends on the size of your first two bets. You should deposit enough to qualify for the bonus amount you want, but always keep your sports bets within what you can afford.
We also recommend you take a moment to check out PointsBet’s responsible gambling information. You will find the link low down the menus on the left hand side of the screen.
If your first standard bet loses and/or your first pointsbet loses PointsBet will add an amount of free bets equal to your losing bet to your account. You get four equal sized free bets so you don’t have to risk the whole of your bonus on a single bet.
How Does Pointsbetting Work?
Pointsbetting magnifies both your wins and your losses from particular bets. For example if you bet $10 that an NBA game final score will total over 200 points, then you win if the combined score of both teams is above 200. For every point above 200 you win another $10. If the final score totals 220 you would win $200.
The downside is that if the final score comes in at 180 you would lose $200 – on your initial $10 bet! This potential loss is withheld by PointsBet so you can cover your losses. The maximum winnings and losses are restricted by a fixed multiple, typically 50x. So for this bet the most you could win or lose would be $500.
The betslip contains all the information you need to know about your specific pointsbet. There is also an online guide which you can access from the left hand screen menu.

If you can’t find the bet you want to make, click on the menu item on the left of the screen and you can name your own bet. If PointsBet can make odds for the bet you can make it.
PointsBet is also getting its name out through a strategic partnership with NBC Sports. This includes “multiplatform gameday integrations” across SportsNet New York where you can get extra coverage of the New York Jets and New York Mets.
