The exclusive partnership and subsequent joint application for licensure of its wholly-owned subsidiary PointsBet Pennsylvania resulted in the region’s Gaming Control Board awarding the company sports wagering and interactive gaming operator licenses to offer online sports betting and online casino products.

As the official, exclusive sports betting partner of NBC Sports, PointsBet plans to leverage the media company’s television and digital assets to promote its brand in Pennsylvania, the home state of Comcast Corporation. 

As part of the agreement, NBC Sports provides PointsBet with year-round, multiplatform media and marketing opportunities across its portfolio of events, including exclusive multiplatform gameday integrations across NBC Sports Philadelphia, the regional broadcast home of the Philadelphia Phillies, Philadelphia 76ers, and Philadelphia Flyers.\
