CDI rolls out BetAmerica sportsbook online in Pennsylvania


Churchill Downs Incorporated (CDI) has announced the launch of its online sportsbook online in Pennsylvania, in a move that builds on its retail presence in the state.

The online service will allow consumers in Pennsylvania to place bets on a wide range of global sporting events, including professional and collegiate sports. It is powered by SBTech’s sports betting technology, via an agreement struck in May 2018.

CDI already operates a land-based sports betting service in the state, having launched a retail sportsbook with the Presque Isle Downs & Casino in August. CDI also offers online gaming in Pennsylvania.

“We’re thrilled to offer the sports betting players in Pennsylvania a new platform to place bets on a broad range of sports events,” BetAmerica president Ian Williams.

“Our BetAmerica Sportsbook features in-game betting, cash outs and super odds boosts that are certain to be a hit with Pennsylvania’s legion of passionate and die-hard sports fans.”

The launch comes after CDI last month also launched a BetAmerica-branded sportsbook at Rising Star Casino Resort in Rising Sun, Indiana. The deal was facilitated by an agreement struck between CDI and Rising Star’s operator, Full House Resorts, in September.

In a separate deal between CDI and Full House Resorts, CDI may also offer sports betting at Full House Resorts’ Bronco Billy’s Casino and Hotel in Cripple Creek, Colorado and take online sports bets state-wide when sports betting launches in the Colorado.
