Bensalem’s Parx Casino yesterday became the second Pennsylvania online sports betting venue.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board said the first of three days of online testing for Parx would begin at 4 p.m. and go to midnight. Longer test periods are scheduled for today and Wednesday.

SugarHouse said bettors placed $573,163 in interactive sports bets during the last four days of May when its system was undergoing testing, according to the gaming board.

Parx began taking sports bets in January at its physical location, and also offers wagering at its off-track betting locations in South Philly and Oaks.

Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware are among the first states to legalize sports betting since the U.S. Supreme Court decision a year ago that overturned a federal ban on sports betting outside of Nevada.
