How to download the app on iOS
If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can easily download the iOS version of the PointsBet app and start using it. The download process is pretty straightforward. On your device, go to the App Store and search PointsBet. The sportsbook app should be the first result that comes up.
Click on the install button, and the installation will commence. However, note that you must be within the state borders of Illinois before you can download the app. Besides that, you must be within Illinois to place bets legally.
Another easy way to download the app is through the PointsBet sports betting site. On the main menu, you will see a Download App link. Click on this, and it will take you to the download page, where you can then select Download for iOS. This will take you directly to the mobile app on the App Store, and you can start downloading it.
How to download the app on Android
Downloading the PointBet mobile app on your Android device is also easy. Thanks to the latest Google Play policies, you can now download the sportsbook app directly from the Play Store. Simply search PointsBet on the Play Store and click on the download button. The app will install automatically and be available for you to start using on your device.
However, if you cannot download the app directly from the store, you can go the long route and download the APK file. To do this, head over to the Download App page of the sports betting site and click on Download for Android. This will take you to a page where you can download the APK file. Alternatively, you can scan the QR code on the Download page to start downloading.
That said, you need to configure some settings on your device to install the APK file. Set your device to allow apps from third parties, as this option is usually disabled by default. Once the APK file is completely downloaded, launch the package installer. This will install the app on your device, and you can start placing bets and accessing its different features.
Reviews of the PointsBet mobile app
As part of our comprehensive PointsBet review, we checked what users had to say about the iOS and Android apps. Impressively, the apps have good ratings, which shows that it is a good choice. The iOS app has a 4.7/5 rating with several good reviews from users.
Many Illinois players using the app fancy the good design, speed, and other features. However, as expected, there are a few negative reviews. Most of these reviews are about the need for more bonuses. PointsBet updates its iOS app from time to time to ensure that all bugs are fixed, and IL players can enjoy the best possible gambling experience.
Apart from the iOS app, players also have several positive reviews for the Android app. The app has a 4.7/5 rating on the Play Store. Many users claim they love the layout, cash-out feature, and betting markets available. That said, there are also a few negative reviews from some unsatisfied users. These reviews are centered around the stringent requirement to register an account since the app only works in states where the sportsbook is licensed.
The downsides of the PointsBet app, as claimed by customers, are that “It is by far the worst one I’ve ever played”, and “The risk-free bets claim is deceptive, because the free bets awarded are not worth the full value, and expire in 1 month or 2 weeks”.
The upsides, according to others, are that “The sportsbook is easy and full of free bets and great boosters” and “they often have very generous odds on MMA probs that deviate from what other books offer”. The app has a rating of 4.8 on the App Store and 4.7 on the Play Store.
