PointsBet Holdings’ (PBH) subsidiary has been awarded a temporary supplier license to offer online sports wagering in Virginia, USA.

Through its exclusive partnership agreement with Colonial Downs Group, and subsequent joint application for licensure, PointsBet Virginia has been awarded the supplier license by the Virginia Lottery.

Johnny Aitken, PointsBet USA CEO, said the company was proud to partner with Virginia Lottery for its first lottery-regulated market license award.

“Being awarded the opportunity to offer PointsBet’s market-leading speed and ease of use, unrivalled slate of betting options, and overall in-play excellence to the people of Old Dominion is a great achievement and responsibility,” said Johnny Aitken.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to further expand our exclusive relationship with NBC Sports – a staple to sports lovers in Virginia – and ultimately provide the great people in the state with the sportsbook they’ve been waiting for.”

As the official sports betting partner of NBC Sports, PointsBet said it will use the media giant’s television and digital assets to promote its brand in Virginia.

As part of its agreement, NBC Sports will give PointsBet year-round, multi-platform media and marketing opportunities across its events.

Additionally, PointsBet said NBC’s full Spanish-language functionality will reach Hispanic sports fans via Telemundo Deportes and Telemundo broadcast stations.

PointsBet was up 0.4 per cent, trading at $7.51 at 11:30 am AEDT.
