It finally here!
Pennsylvanians can now participate in sports betting online. PA online sports betting was expected to take off in early May, however, May 28th marked the actual day when PA sports betting online went live.
PA online sports betting
The delay in the launch of PA sports betting came because of issues with Apple. PA sports betting operators were finding it difficult to gain the approval of their sports betting apps in the iTunes store. This lead to the first PA online sports betting site on the market, SugarHouse Casino, launching without an iOS sports betting app.
SugarHouse Casino introduces PA sports betting
SugarHouse Casino PA soft-launched their PA sports betting app online, beating the other PA sportsbooks to the punch. The PlaySugarHouse PA sports betting app is available for download on Android devices only.
We expect other PA online sports betting operators to follow the lead and start launching their sports betting sites steadily throughout the summer. After what we saw in New Jersey, it would not be a surprise for these PA sportsbooks to launch almost immediately. NJ sports betting proved an extremely profitable endeavor for the state of New Jersey and its operators. Expect a similar push in Pennsylvania.
