PointsBet announced that it has launched its online casino platform in a third state — West Virginia —through its existing partnership with Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races.

The launch in the Mountain State follows successful deployments of its online casino product in Michigan and New Jersey. The Australian gaming operator launched in Michigan in May 2021 and in New Jersey two months later.

“As PointsBet rapidly expands its presence across the US and the online casino market continues to surge in popularity, we are thrilled to be able to now offer an online casino experience to users in West Virginia,” said Aaron O’Sullivan, Vice President for Online Casino Revenue at PointsBet.

“It has been our goal to deliver the best-in-class casino content to our users in all of the states where we are permitted to offer the service. We remain committed to its growth and PointsBet’s position as the leader in the online casino market.”

Manjit Gombra Singh, President of Product and Technology at PointsBet, added that it is “an exciting time for the online casino market.”

“We’re proud to be able to tap into this momentum and introduce our proprietary product in West Virginia,” Singh said. “We’re quickly scaling our business and have now integrated the Scientific Games platform to expand our premium content portfolio. We’re looking forward to expanding and refining our suite of products throughout the year to deliver more options for our users in PointsBet online casinos.”

PointsBet said West Virginia players will have access to 15 online casino games, including 88 Fortunes, Blackjack, and Monopoly Megaways, through a partnership with Scientific Games Digital.

The gaming operator gained access to Michigan casino players through a partnership with the Lac Vieux Desert Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, which owns and operates the Northern Waters Casino Resort in Watersmeet, MI. In New Jersey, PointsBet partnered with Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel & Casino for its online casino product.

PointsBet announced that it would provide live dealer games in Michigan and New Jersey through an agreement with Evolution. It launched live dealer in Michigan in December 2021 and in New Jersey in January 2022.

The Australian company will have access to players in West Virginia through its existing partnership with the Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races. The two started a partnership for sports betting in August 2021.

Recent Sportsbook Launches

PointsBet has been in the news a lot recently as it aggressively launches sportsbooks in several US states.

The Aussie gaming giant currently operates sportsbooks in nine states, including West Virginia, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, and Virginia.

It entered into the Virginia sports betting market through a partnership with Colonial Downs, the state’s only horse racetrack, in December 2021. In Pennsylvania, PointsBet is on the land-based casino license of Hollywood Casino York through an agreement with Penn National Gaming, which owns and manages the mini-casino.

PointsBet is also one of six sportsbook operators to have launched to date in New York. The launch there is expected to be highly lucrative for the Australian company due to its exclusive partnership with NBC Sports.

A sportsbook launch in Tennessee also appears in the works. The new regulator in the state, the Sports Wagering Advisory Council (SWAC), confirmed to US Gaming Review earlier this month that PointsBet had submitted an application to run a sportsbook there.

In previous announcements, PointsBet revealed that it aspires to launch its online casino and sportsbook products in several additional US states, specifically identifying: Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, and Ohio.
