Right along with New Jersey and West Virginia, you can count Pennsylvania as one of the most aggressive states in the union when it comes to establishing their legal sports gambling industry.
The Keystone state now has six sports betting apps up and running as well as eight brick and mortar sportsbooks accepting wagers, all since May of 2018.
Statewide Brick and Mortar Sportsbooks
Within 18 months of the state bill passing, there are seven brick and mortar casinos up and running throughout the state with three more coming in 2020.
- William Hill Hollywood
- Harrah’s Philadelphia
- FanDuel Valley Forge
- Valley Forge Race and Sportsbook
- Mohegan Sun Pocono (Coming 2020)
- BetStars Mount Airy (Coming 2020)
- Presque Isle Downs (Coming 2020)
Available Betting Apps in PA 2020
There are currently five legal sports betting apps available throughout Pennsylvania.
- FanDuel Sportsbook PA
- SugarHouse Sportsbook PA
- Rivers Sportsbook
- Fox Bet
As for now, there doesn’t seem to be any more sports betting apps coming online in the near future. Of course, this is likely to change as the industry continues to grow.
Best Bonuses and Promotions
As you can imagine, with plenty of competition for your gambling dollar, sportsbooks will do all they can to separate themselves from the rest. Bonuses and promotions are a great way to do this and here are a few of the standouts in Pennsylvanian sports betting apps
- FanDuel – $500 Match Bet
- SugarHouse- 100% Match Up to $250
- Rivers Sportsbook – 100% Match Up to $250
- Fox Bet – $20 Free Bet for Sign Up
Sports Available for Betting
Industry-standard sports available for betting are available in Pennsylvania sportsbooks as there are no state restrictions on offerings. These include:
- Football (NFL and NCAAF)
- Basketball (NBA, WNBA, NCAAM)
- Baseball (MLB and NCAA)
- Hockey (NHL)
- Soccer (MLS, Premier League, World Cup)
- Combat Sports (UFC and Boxing)
- Golf (PGA, LPGA)
- Auto Sports (F-1, NASCAR)
With so many sportsbook options available in Pennsylvania, the payment options available in the state will vary from sportsbook to sportsbook, whether online or brick and mortar.
That said, what we’ve seen thus far is better than industry standard: Cash, debit cards, credit cards, bank transfers, PayPal, Skrill, PayNearMe, or specialty prepaid cards are all available at most of the sportsbooks in the state, online or on land.
Legal Betting Age
Anyone over the age of 21 can legally wager on sports in the state of Pennsylvania.
