Two Sportsbooks Are Set To Change Market in PA

Online sports betting is live in Pennsylvania, but the market is about to look different in the coming weeks and months. Currently, bettors can bet with SugarHouse Sportsbook, Bet Rivers Sportsbook or Parx Sportsbook, but things are about to change soon, before football season. Owner of SugarHouse and Rivers, Rush Street, says it plans to rebrand SugarHouse to Bet Rivers sometime this summer. That means that the Bet Rivers Sportsbook in Pennsylvania will become the go-to app, not only for people in the western half of the state who are familiar with Rivers already, but also the current SugarHouse users...

PA Online Sports Betting Coming Soon

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about when PA online sports betting is expected to go live. With the recent opening of sportsbooks at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course, SugarHouse Casino and Rivers Casino, and with the impending opening of physical sportsbooks at Parx and Harrah’s, mobile wagering is not far behind. This summer, PA regulators said that it could be live sometime in the fall, but that obviously hasn’t happened yet. The most likely scenario, according to people I’ve spoken to, is online betting will start sometime in early 2019. Who’s first out of the...
