New Online Casino Coming To Pennsylvania And New Jersey

Another gaming company is coming to the US online casino market from across the pond. PlayStar Casino, powered by Gaming Innovation Group (GiG), entered into an agreement with Swedish-based Internet Vikings to launch in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The new online casino is expected in early 2022.

“We are delighted to be partnering with GiG to power PlayStar’s expansion into Pennsylvania, said Per Hellberg, CEO of PlayStar Casino. “With our preparations firmly underway for our New Jersey launch with GiG, it was a natural progression to leverage that work and replicate our casino offering over the border in Pennsylvania.”

PlayStar Casino Entering The Two Biggest Online Betting Markets

New Jersey and Pennsylvania boast the two largest online casino markets in the country. New Jersey online casino revenue has consistently surpassed $100 million per month. Pennsylvania online casino revenue recently began doing the same. And a thriving market isn’t a sign of over-saturation, it’s a sign of high demand.

That spells good timing for the upcoming PlayStar Casino launch, especially if the PlayStar Casino bonus code is competitive. If not, it probably won’t appeal to new players as much as established casino brands.

For example, the Golden Nugget NJ bonus code SHARP gets new players $30 on signup, no deposit required, plus a 100% deposit-match up to $1,000 and 200 Free Spins. Terms and conditions apply. Click here to claim.

While that Golden Nugget bonus code is exclusive to readers, it’s a good indication of what PlayStar Casino will have to contend with. With the best online casinos in New Jersey and Pennsylvania offering free money on signup on top of huge deposit-match bonuses, PlayStar would do well to launch with something eye-catching.

New Online Casinos In NJ And PA

New Jersey’s most recent online casino, Tipico Casino, launched on October 5, 2021. And it comes during a year of several high-quality online casino launches, including:

  • FanDuel Casino (July 27)
  • PointsBet Casino (July 23) 
  • Betway Casino (August 16)
  • Barstool Casino (August 19)

Looking to try a new casino for free? Players at both new and established sites can get up to $165 free without making a deposit with these New Jersey no-deposit online casino bonuses.

    Despite Pennsylvania being the fastest growing online casino market in the US, has seen only two new launches in 2021. Borgata Casino launched on February 24, and Stardust Casino launched on April 20.

    When PlayStar Casino launches in early 2022, that will mark about a one year gap between new online casinos in Pennsylvania going live. Hopefully, it also marks the start of at least a few more launches throughout 2022.
