Golden Nugget is the 21st Pennsylvania Online Casino to Open its Doors

Another PA online casino has joined the fray. Following a testing period with the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB), Golden Nugget Casino PA is the 21st platform to launch in the Keystone State.

Aside from the immense development potential in Pennsylvania, the newest provider has a lot going for it. DraftKings owns Golden Nugget and has a significant retail operation in Atlantic City, New Jersey, which gamers in eastern Pennsylvania are familiar with.

The Golden Nugget PA online casino is now available after a limited launch.

The newest PA online casino has finished its soft launch through the PGCB and is now fully operational.

“We’re thrilled to share that Golden Nugget Online Gaming’s mobile casino is now available to clients in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” said Matt Kalish, President of DraftKings North America, in a news release. “The app is powered by our cutting-edge technology, which dynamically delivers hundreds of popular casino games and special offers to our customer’s fingertips.” While playing on Golden Nugget Online Gaming, Pennsylvania residents will be able to experience exceptional customer service, enticing promos, and a smooth interface.”

Golden Nugget is the third online provider to enter the PA market this year. Tropicana Casino PA opened in late April, followed by Bally Casino in June.

The PGCB approved Golden Nugget’s application to operate in Pennsylvania in June. During a July board meeting, the PGCB then licensed the operator. Doug Harbach, PGCB Director of Communications, said on July 26 that Golden Nugget needed to test with the board before launching.

Golden Nugget faced a long road to market entry after applying for licensure through the PGCB’s Qualified Gaming Entity (QGE) process in October 2018. To launch online as a QGE, an operator does not need to collaborate with a land-based casino in the state.

What to Anticipate from Golden Nugget Casino Pennsylvania

Golden Nugget’s online casino has been organized with the same colors and sections as DraftKings’ homepage, so Pennsylvania gamers may anticipate it to look similar.

Golden Nugget also hosts a number of DraftKings-branded games, including:

  • DraftKings Blackjack (for football, basketball, and baseball)
  • DraftKings Digits
  • DK Rocket
  • DraftKings Roulette March Mania
  • DraftKings NBA Slam Dunk Roulette

The new Pennsylvania online casino utilizes the same technological stack as DraftKings.

The brand is well-known in New Jersey and Michigan. Although New Jersey does not break down revenue per operator, Golden Nugget was the first site to start in the Garden State. The Golden Nugget Atlantic City license led the state in June revenue with $41.8 million. Golden Nugget Michigan was the fifth-highest revenue generator in June ($6.9 million), trailing BetMGM, FanDuel, DraftKings, and BetRivers.

Golden Nugget definitely has the potential to run a profitable online casino in Pennsylvania. It also helps to have access to DraftKings’ games and technological stack.
