Pennsylvania’s SugarHouse completes online sportsbook launch


Rush Street’s SugarHouse Casino has officially launched its online sportsbook, the first to go live in the Pennsylvania market. 

The desktop and mobile offering officially went live on last Friday (May 31) following a three-day operational test, and having secured final approval from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB). 

“Since opening, our SugarHouse Sportsbook has been buzzing with sports fans 24/7,” SugarHouse Casino general manager Rob Long said.

“Whether they’re watching Philly teams on the big screen or following a soccer game or tennis matches live streamed directly from the French Open to, the action is round-the-clock, and now with online and mobile sports betting, you can take it with you.”

Players are being offered an online match bonus of up to $250 on their first deposit when they sign up for a new account.

Players that have already signed up for a account in New Jersey will be able to accelerate their Pennsylvania registration process by transferring information already held in their existing account.

“Thanks to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board’s leadership, we are excited to make history in bringing the first online sportsbook to sports fans in the state of Pennsylvania,” Rush Street Interactive president Richard Schwartz said.

“Rush Street Interactive has grown market share since entering the New Jersey market in 2016, in large part due to the quality of user experience and a laser focus on delivering what our players want, a massive range of sports betting options, responsive customer service and fast payouts.

“We have now brought the same quality, award-winning site to players in the state of Pennsylvania.”
