Kyle Scott of CrossingBroad.com and Jason Ziernicki of PASportsbooks.com discuss the launch of PA online sports betting. Which sportsbook will be launching next? When are the major brands like FanDuel Sportsbook PA and Fox Bet set to enter the PA online space?
Next PA Sportsbooks To Launch?
I anticipate Rivers Online Sportsbook to quickly follow SugarHouse, possibly next week with their PGCB testing time period.
Parx Sportsbook has publicly stated June as their new target date for launch, so expect the Philly based casino to follow Rivers. FanDuel Sportsbook PA has been very quite since launching their retail sportsbook earlier this year at Valley Forge Casino & Resort. Rumors strongly point to the FanDuel PA online sportsbook going live sometime in June.
With the launch of online sports betting, sports betting revenue will grow dramatically in Pennsylvania. Per New Jersey online sportsbooks, 80% of the sports betting handle comes from online/mobile devices.
