He further explained that they had defined themselves via their proprietary and in-house technology that serves to deliver the easiest and fastest sports betting experience in the US. Therefore, Denver sports fans in-arena or those watching the games from home via the Altitude Sports Network will be given many ways to improve their viewing experience with the market-leading PointsBet Sportsbook app.
As part of the agreement, KSE will be opening the Pepsi Center’s new in-arena location for the 2020-21 seasons. It will have three areas: the PointsBet Sports Bar, the PointsBet Sports Bar’s outdoor patio, and the PointsBet Premium Club. The Pepsi Center will witness the rebranding of the sportsbook, brand ambassador placements, and several more changes during the period between 2020 and 2021. It will be called “PointsBet Club Level”.
For the 2020-21 seasons, KSE will also allow considerably improved in-arena WiFi, complimenting PointsBet’s leading pace and ease of use through the PointsBet app. PointsBet will be featured on the ice and screen for the Avalanche contests during the day of the match and the stanchions of the Nugget Game in Denver.
