PointsBet, a highly rated sports betting operator, announced last January 5, 2021, an agreement with the NBA team, Detroit Piston, as their exclusive sports betting partner. The partnership gives the sports betting operator full rights to use the Detroit Pistons IP, logos, and marks. It also includes brand visibility and sponsorship opportunities across various social and digital assets.
NBA-Legend, Rip Hamilton’s addition to the PointsBet team made the announcement reinforced that day. Hamilton, one of the key members of the Detroit Pistons ’04 NBA champions squad, and who is also famously known for contributing to the Pistons to go six straight Eastern Conference Finals appearances, and back-to-back NBA Finals appearances, is the brand ambassador and the face of the company’s Michigan and Detroit-based sports betting products as the company will make ready for incredible sports and sports betting action in the state.
“PointsBet is thrilled to partner with the Pistons, aligning with a first-class organization supported by particularly passionate fans, we’re proud to increase our investment in the Detroit and greater Michigan sports community after joining forces with the Detroit Tigers last July. Michigan is a fantastic sports state, and we look forward to the opportunity to soon serve Michigan sports bettors on a personalized platform with unrivaled speed and ease of use, now alongside both the Pistons and brand ambassador Rip Hamilton – a storied champion at both the collegiate and professional levels who’s work ethic and spirited style embodies the PointsBet philosophy.” — said Johnny Aitken, PointsBet USA CEO.
“My love for Michigan and the city of Detroit is no secret. I’m incredibly excited to join the PointsBet team and help usher in the fastest, most premium sports betting experience to the best fans in sports, Detroit sports fans will love what PointsBet has to offer, such as an app that is specifically tailored for the teams they support, as well as the most betting options in the world, including up to 1,000 markets per NBA game. Unique product features like their Name A Bet and PointsBetting platforms are an added plus, and the PointsBet app is incredibly fast and very easy to use. What’s not to love? Get ready, Michigan – ‘Yessir’!” — said Rip Hamilton, NBA Legend.
The partnership between the Detroit Pistons and PointsBet will also give the right to limited in-game, broadcast-visible digital signage opportunities. Pistons.com, Piston Team’s mobile app, and Pistons social media channels will also display the branding of the sports betting company and will feature regularly the company’s promotions during this NBA Season.
Having Rip Hamilton on the team is an asset for the company. His knowledge about basketball and specifically of the Detroit sports background will align his unique insight into the sports betting company’s premier offerings. This addition would truly help the company’s aim to provide their customers with the highest quality and most comprehensive sportsbook experience.
Note that PointsBet is still not available in the state of Michigan, but is soon to be expected to release its sports betting app to the state. Those who want to play can participate in ongoing promotions like the Welcoming Bonus that offers their clients 2 Risk-Free Bets for up to $1,500 in total.
