PA Online Sports Betting Sites [May 2021]
PA Online Sports Betting is now legal and about to explode across the Keystone state. Pennsylvania currently has 11 online sportsbooks and mobile betting apps open for business.
DraftKings is now 100% live in Pennsylvania. It will be very interesting to see the impact DraftKings Sportsbook has on the overall revenue and handle of the #1 FanDuel Sportsbook in PA.
2. FoxBet PA: This sportsbook is the true wildcard in the Pennsylvania online sports betting market. BetStars was re-branded as Fox Bet due to a massive deal between The Stars Group (ticker TSG) and Fox Sports. Are we really going to see NFL pre-game ads and combined with game previews on TV? Will Charissa Thompson essentially be a Fox Bet spokesperson each Sunday?
As a European sportsbook power, UNIBET launched in Pennsylvania via a partnership with the Mohegan Sun Pocono.
If PA sports betting revenue numbers have lagged a bit, the launch of the FanDuel online sportsbook and iPhone betting app are sure to help. PA sports bettors can access FanDuel PA via PA.Sportsbook.FanDuel.com.
BetRivers was the second online sportsbook in PA for Rush Street Interactive who also operates SugarHouse Sportsbook. BetRivers can only be accessed via iPhone or iPad with the Geo-Comply app. Android app access is easy and the download link is available on PA.BetRivers.com.
SugarHouse Sportsbook was the first online sportsbook and mobile betting app (Android) to launch in Pennsylvania. SugarHouse has since come out with a iOS work-around, but the lack of true iPhone app will hurt their growth numbers.
Parx Casino has been the revenue leader for retail casino’s in Pennsylvania for quite some time. The launch of Parx online sportsbook may hint that local success may not equate to state wide use with other brands dramatically outpacing Parx in sports betting handle.
8. BetAmerica Sportsbook PA: A retail sportsbook for BetAmerica is located at Presque Isle Downs Casino in Pennsylvania. BetAmerica has been operating an online sportsbook and mobile betting app since the Spring of 2018.
Which Online Sportsbooks Will Launch Next in PA?
As we move through 2020, the number of PA online sportsbooks and mobile betting apps have doubled in the past year. Major sports betting operators are set to enter the PA market and spend millions of dollars in advertising costs. The following sportsbooks are expected to go live before the 2020 NFL season.
1. Harrah’s Sportsbook PA: “The Book” in Chester, PA is the name of the retail sportsbook for Harrah’s Philly. The recent merger of Caesars and Eldorado Resorts may slow the launch of Harrah’s online sportsbook in Pennsylvania. Sources from Harrah’s have suggested a late August 2020 launch time for their PA online sportsbook.
