ointsBet was recently honored at the EGR Marketing and Innovation Awards 2021 for displaying the best innovation in sports betting and the top affiliate marketing campaign.

PointsBet USA CEO Johnny Aitken, said: "Day in and day out, the PointsBet team is 110% committed and determined to deliver the fastest sports betting experience in the world. I am proud of our immense success to date, though we as a team also know there is nothing but opportunity ahead to continuously grow the PointsBet brand, technology, and ability to innovate and differentiate. We extend our gratitude to the judges, sponsors, industry colleagues, and entire EGR team for the recognition and validation, and look forward to the industry innovation ahead that PointsBet will continue to drive."

Top commentary from the judging panel on PointsBet's year to date includes:

  • "PointsBet have come to the market and have proven innovation, setting themselves apart from the crowd."
  • "Having an O&O product is a real advantage. One of few points of product differentiation and a nice balance to the promotion/shout as loud as you can marketing approaches of their competitor set. The exclusivity of PointsBet's product offering combined with the market position they have established makes them a worthy winner of the innovation award."
  • "Stand out use of talent on social media channels to drive affiliate performance in an engaging & editorially compelling fashion. A clear winner in terms of catching attention in a fast-growing and competitive market."
  • "Old school partnerships, sponsorships, and promotions are done well and on a huge scale."
