The Keystone State now has its 20th Pennsylvania online casino. Bally Casino PA is now fully operational for Pennsylvania users throughout the state.
Bally’s is the second platform that has arrived in the PA market in the last three months as the online casino sector continues to expand.
Bally’s is the 20th Pennsylvania Online Casino to Open its Doors
After a three-day soft launch, Bally Casino notified CasinoWatchPA that it has been “fully live” in Pennsylvania since June 8. According to a Bally spokeswoman, the firm has not issued any press releases or statements.
Bally Daily Picks is a free game that gamblers can play for the chance to win daily prizes at the new online casino. Players can also gain Bally Rewards, where they can earn Bally Bucks by playing games at online casinos and participating in various contests.
Bally Casino offers a total of 212 games, including slot machines and table games. When you log into the casino, eight games appear at the top of the display in a section labeled “Suggested For You.” These games are as follows:
- American Roulette
- Cash Eruption
- Atomic Meltdown
- 88 Fortunes
- Blackjack Multihand With Surrender
- First Person Blackjack
Bally Casino also provides PA live dealer games through its relationship with Evolution Gaming.
The operator then displays slideshows of other popular games throughout the page. Bally divides their games into the following categories, as CasinoWatchPA documented the homepages of various PA online casinos:
Bally’s Journey to the Pennsylvania Online Casino Market
Bally Casino is Pennsylvania’s second platform to start without a physical casino partner. PlayLive! Casino is the only major online platform that launched before its physical equivalent.
Bally’s is in the same situation as PlayLive! As Live! Casino! Casino Philadelphia debuted months after its online app was launched. Bally’s retail casino on Penn State’s campus is the subject of several lawsuits, which have no bearing on Bally’s status as an iGaming provider in Pennsylvania.
On January 3, Bally’s filed a petition for an online betting casino license as a Qualified Gaming Entity (QGE). The PGCB approved Bally Casino’s petition to open in Pennsylvania on March 22.
The Pennsylvania Casino Business is still Expanding
With the debut, Pennsylvania now has 20 online casinos. It will be difficult for the state to catch up to New Jersey, which has 32 distinct platforms.
Bally’s has been entering a crowded market since Tropicana Casino opened in late April. More internet casinos seem to be on the way as well.
Since the beginning of 2023, Bet365 has been steadily expanding in the United States. Its sportsbook debuted in Iowa last month, and both platforms are expected to arrive in Pennsylvania soon. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) outlined the measures bet365 must take before entering the Pennsylvania market.
Fanatics also got a piece of the PA pie after purchasing PointsBet’s US assets for $225 million last month. When Fanatics joins the PA commotion, it will take over the operations of PointsBet. Therefore, it will not be a new online casino. It will, however, likely make a more significant effort to capture market share.
Other operators on the verge of entering Pennsylvania with an approved license include:
