PointsBet has officially entered the Pennsylvania online gambling market. The company announced on January 20 that it would be the latest new PA online casino after getting sports wagering and interactive gaming licenses from state regulators. This means PointsBet will be able to cater to sports bettors and online casino fans alike, with a hopeful launch date in the coming weeks.
PointsBet Launching New PA Online Casino And Sportsbook
The sports betting market in Pennsylvania is one of the country’s biggest. Now that the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has given the green light to PointsBet, it will be the 17th operator to enter the Pennsylvania sports wagering market.
The state’s online casino market is also strong, with plenty of casino competitors already operating. The launch of a new PA online casino is good news for fans of slots, blackjack, and other online casino games.
Pennsylvania is an important part of the brand since PointsBet is the media giant NBC Sports’ official, exclusive betting partner. The chief marketing officer of PointsBet USA Kyle Christensen confirmed, “With NBC Philadelphia being a key asset in the NBC Sports portfolio, it will play a vital role in our ability to reach new customers and build brand recognition in this new market.”
PointsBet is an Australian company that has a network across a number of countries that include Canada, Ireland, and Australia, as well as the US. It offers sports and racing betting, including advance deposit wagering on racing (ADW) and more.
The iGaming brand consistently expands its offering too, recently launching live dealer games in Michigan for its online casino members. Other than Pennsylvania, the company also has a presence in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, West Virginia, and Virginia.
When Will The New PA Online Casino Launch?
The question on every bettor’s mind now is when will PointsBet start taking bets in Pennsylvania. There are some big games coming up on the calendar and the company will want potential customers to be able to bet on them. The best guess for now is by early February 2022.
When PointsBet goes live, there will most likely be special online casino offers for Pennsylvania players. In the past, it has offered free bets as a welcome bonus to encourage new bettors to sign up. One thing is for sure, there’s plenty of competition in the market for PA sports betting bonus codes, which is great for sports bettors more so than it is for PointsBet. They’ll have to come out with something strong to get attention in such a competitive environment.
