Pennsylvania awards three more sportsbetting licenses

News on 31 Oct 2018

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) has awarded a further three sportsbetting licenses to Sugar House Casino, Harrahs Casino and Racetrack and Rivers Casino.

Both Rivers Casino and SugarHouse are owned by Rush Street Gaming LLC and plan to take their first bets on December 1, 2018 at temporary sportsbook venues in the respective casinos.  Internet gaming operations are expected to launch in 2019.

Our readers will recall the award of the first two sports betting licenses to Parx Casino and Hollywood Casino earlier this month.

The PGCB also awarded interactive gaming licenses to Presque Isle Downs & Casino and Stadium Casino LLC, enabling these operators to launch online slot and casino table games.

These latest bring to nine internet gaming license awards, the others held by Parx, Harrah’s, Mount Airy Casino Resort, SugarHouse, Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course, Sands Bethlehem and Valley Forge Casino Resort, all of which have yet to launch an online offer in the State.
