The rumors surrounding the opening of more sportsbooks in Pennsylvania continues on a daily basis. As of today, the rumors are over for SugarHouse and Rivers casino, as they officially open their PA Sportsbooks.
The big question now turns to when should we expect to see Parx Casino in Bensalem, PA debut their new sportsbook? According to the always changing PA Sports Betting rumor mill, Parx Sportsbook will open before the end of 2018. With 18 days remaining, we are essentially on a daily watch.

PA ONLINE SPORTSBOOKS?
With Rivers and SugarHouse sportsbooks going live today, the number of retail sportsbooks jumps to 3. Earlier this month Hollywood Casino by Harriburgh opened their Sportsbook. So the big question immediately turns to when will PA online sportsbooks and mobile apps launch similar to NJ Sports Betting?
All signs point to Parx Casino launching their sports betting in the 1Q of 2019. My guess would be launch around March Madness would strengthen the initial push.
The SugarHouse betting app has already launched in New Jersey with strong revenue numbers. With their PA Sports betting license in place, we should expect to see more SugarHouse Sportsbook commercials very soon in Pennsylvania.
