Mobile sports betting has taken some parts of the country by storm, and now Iowa is joining the fray with some of the top apps leading the way.
PointsBet and BetMGM, which have been so successful in other states like New Jersey, will be live in the new year, and both have some very good deposit bonuses and offers for new bettors to use.
PointsBet, of course, has revolutionized betting by allowing you to wager on points betting, which can allow you to double, triple, or even win 10-20 times your original stake.
But why is PointsBet Iowa’s opening account offer so good?
How about four risk-free bets up to $1000?
PointsBet Iowa lets you bet up to $500 ($250 max for both) for your first two fixed odds bets, and if they lose, the site will refund you. But PointsBet also gives you your first two points bet wagers risk-free as well up to $500 ($250 max for both), and with a chance to multiply your winnings with every point over the line you bet, this could be an extremely lucrative bonus offer. And if you lose, the money is refunded into your account. It is really the best offer for any betting site there is anywhere in the country, and you can also get a deposit bonus when you open your account.
BetMGM calls itself the “King of Sports Books”, and the site definitely has some top promotional offers for new accounts. You can get up to a $500 free bet, and use it to wager on many of the sports that the site has on offer.
For example, you could back the Iowa Hawkeyes to win the NCAA National Championship at +900 on BetMGM, or if you want something that looks like a lock, you could parlay that with Luke Garza to win the John R. Wooden Award, which is priced at odds of -500 (as close to a lock as you will see).
On PointsBet, you could back the Kansas City Chiefs at odds of +200 to win Super Bowl LV, which could be a very lucrative wager for the people of Iowa.
Check out both sites in the coming weeks for more offers as well.
