PointsBet Holdings Limited announced today that it is in operation among the Maryland sportsbooks  mobile apps that launched in the state starting at 9 a.m.

PointsBet is partnered with the Riverboat on the Potomac, which is moored at a spot in Virginia but floats in Maryland waters in Charles County.

“Just a few short months after unveiling The PointsBet Retail Sportsbook at The Riverboat on the Potomac, we’re thrilled to now be able to add our market-leading online sports betting product to the mix,” said PointsBet USA CEO Johnny Aitken. “As one of the few sportsbooks to be on the starting line in Maryland, PointsBet will be delivering sports fans in the state a new way to take part in the action – whether that’s for the NFL, NBA, or NHL. And we’re particularly looking forward to launch just as the 2022 World Cup is starting and showing Maryland bettors why we’re known as the home of live betting through our new suite of Soccer Lightning Bet markets.” 

On the soccer front, PointsBet customers will have the opportunity to tap into new Soccer Lightning Bets, which include Free Kick Awarded, Goal Scored, Goal Kick Awarded, Shots On Target and more. Same-game parlays are available pre-match or live. Be on the lookout for PointsBet Maryland bonus codes.

“Along with The Riverboat team, which is the only minority-owned facility in the state, we’re proud to bring the renowned PointsBet mobile product to the state of Maryland” said Paul Hannon, senior vice president of corporate development at PointsBet. “The Maryland sports betting industry is poised to be one of the most active in the nation, and to be able to take part in that momentum while also working closely with The Riverboat to enhance its equity and inclusion in the space is monumental.”

PointsBet Touts Special Features

PointsBet said in a news release that it is the only operator in the Maryland sports apps market to offer features such as Name A Bet, Live Same Game Parlays, and Pointsbetting. 

“Name a Bet allows bettors to suggest their own market to PointsBet traders for pricing. Live Same Game Parlays enables bettors to create same game parlays once a contest has started. Pointsbetting ups the excitement level of a bet with potential winnings or losses changing until the very end of the game,” according to the company’s news release.

Also, Maryland customers will be able to take advantage of PointsBet’s daily Power Hour from 1-2 p.m., which features bonus bets for each NFL day and each time Team USA plays in the World Cup. 

PointsBet also teased that customers near M&T Bank Stadium, home of the NFL Ravens, should look for a new PointsBet billboard that features a special promo offer that PointsBet contends “brings a little fun to (Baltimore quarterback) Lamar Jackson’s contract dispute.”

Jackson is in the fifth year of his rookie contract and is reportedly seeking a nine-figure extension.
