PENNSYLVANIA SPORTS BETTING HAS BOOMED IN JUST SIX MONTHS!

Legal Pennsylvania sports betting officially launched on Nov. 17, 2018. That’s when Penn National Gaming and partner William Hill opened up a retail sportsbook at the Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Grantville.

Since then, seven more retail PA sports betting operations have launched at various casinos and off-track betting parlors. A ninth retail sportsbook will start taking bets in June 2019 and two more are in the application pipeline as well.

PA online sports betting welcomed its first mobile app when PlaySugarHouse.com opened its virtual betting windows on May 28, 2019. It shouldn’t take too long for the rest of the PA sportsbooks to follow suit.

Now that online sports betting in PA is a reality, the answer to the question of where you can bet on sports in PA will be a simple one: Anywhere inside state lines where you can access the internet.

Besides betting online at PlaySugarHouse.com, you can also bet on sports at the following licensed Pennsylvania sportsbooks:

SugarHouse Sportsbook

SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia launched a temporary sportsbook on Dec. 15, 2018. SugarHouse has begun construction and will launch a permanent sportsbook sometime in 2019. The casino also plans to launch the state’s first PA sports betting app in May 2019.

The SugarHouse Sportsbook features six live betting windows and 12 self-service sports betting kiosks.

The sportsbook runs on Kambi software and offers a Betslip Builder App online allowing players to see live odds and create betslips ahead of a visit.

Hollywood Casino Sportsbook

Penn National Gaming and partner William Hill opened up the state’s first sportsbook at the Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Grantville on Nov. 17, 2018.

There is also a plan to launch a PA sports betting app and PA sports betting site in the summer of 2019.

In the meantime, the Hollywood Casino Sportsbook takes bets at six live betting windows and self-service sports betting kiosks on the property.

Rivers Sportsbook in Pittsburgh launched a temporary sportsbook on Dec. 15, 2018. Rivers plans to launch a permanent sportsbook sometime in 2019.

Parx is building a $10 million 10,000-square-foot permanent sportsbook on the property with plans to open in the summer of 2019. It also hopes to have a PA sports betting app online by then.

The temporary Parx Sportsbook now features seven live betting windows and 45 self-service sports betting kiosks available 24 hours a day across the casino floor.

The FanDuel Sportsbook at the Valley Forge Casino launched on March 13, 2019, just outside of Philadelphia in King of Prussia. FanDuel and Valley Forge Casino are also working on a plan to launch a PA sports betting app in June 2019.

In the meantime, the retail operation has seven live betting windows and is awaiting regulatory approval to install self-service sports betting kiosks.

Coming Soon

BetStarsPA/FOX Bet/Mount Airy

The Stars Group has partnered with Mount Airy Casino on plans to launch retail and online and mobile sports betting operations in PA sometime in 2019.

While it was originally thought these operations would come with The Stars Group BetStars brand attached, a recent deal with FOX Sports calls that into question. FOX Sports is certainly a better-known brand in the US and The Stars Group is already planning to launch FOX Bet-branded sports betting operations in other states.

Unibet PA Sportsbook

Kindred Group has partnered with Mohegan Sun Pocono on plans to launch online and mobile sports betting operations in PA sometime in 2019. The operations are likely to carry the Unibet brand.
