Fanatics Sportsbook has launched its beta product in Massachusetts — the third state where it’s available.
The apparel giant has been slowly building its sportsbook over the last few years and agreed to acquire PointsBet earlier this month, giving it access to New York and more than a dozen legal online betting states. But the deal won’t close until Aug. 31, and then Fanatics will slowly start to acquire PointsBet’s market access in each state, three at a time, until May 2024.
Fanatics got licensed on its own in Massachusetts, paving the way for this beta launch. PointsBet chose not to get licensed and operate in Mass.
So how do you join the beta? All you need to do is fill out a survey, and you’ll have full access to the sportsbook (plus $200 in bonus bets).
Action users in Massachusetts, Ohio and Tennessee. The terms of the Fanatics/PointsBet deal says it will be live in all of PointsBet’s states by May 2024 at the latest, with the biggest betting states — Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey — likely the first priorities.
You’ll get $200 in bonus bets in Mass. with a $5 bet, plus you’ll earn up to 5% back in FanCash on every bet you place — 5% for same game parlays, 3% for regular parlays, and 1% on straight bets.
It’s hard to say, but getting $200 in bonus bets with a minimal deposit is about the best you can do in U.S. sports betting these days. bet365 has the highest-value “bet/get” offer, also at $200. Gone are the days of a $3,000 deposit match from Caesars.
PointsBet has a license in 12 states that Fanatics does not, including a few big, expensive states to get into — New York and Pennsylvania among them. Fanatics got its own licenses in Ohio, Tennessee, Massachusetts and Maryland. It plans to launch its beta in MD sometime next week.
