Pennsylvania’s online and mobile sports betting is almost here. Many of them are expected to be launched by the end of June. SugarHouse’s online bookie in Pennsylvania is expected to be one of the first to launch in the state. Look for the SugarHouse sports betting mobile app for a “soft launch” in early June.
The name SugarHouse comes from the original use of the land on which it was built. The land previously housed the JackFrost sugar refinery. SugarHouse got a casino license in 2006, but didn’t break new ground until four years later, in 2010. The casino was an instant hit in Philadelphia, which led to its expansion. In 2016, SugarHouse added many riverside restaurants and attractions.
Rush Street Entertainment is the parent company of SugarHouse Casino, the same parent company as Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh. Rush Street Interactive will operate SugarHouse’s online and mobile sports betting platforms. RSI will manage account details as well as payment options. Kambi technology will be the provider of ratings and data for their application.
SugarHouse Online Sportsbook and mobile app
Although the Pennsylvania bookie hasn’t launched yet, we can do a comparison from the NJ SugarHouse app.
The NJ app is one of the flashiest sports betting apps out there. While most have the basic simple features, SugarHouse offers some of the best features of their app with stunning graphics.
On the main page, all the sports you can bet on are listed on the left side of the screen, with the current lines in the middle of the screen. The app also offers an up-to-date news feed for each sporting event. This can be a very useful tool for bettors. Any last minute injuries or roster changes can be found on this news feed. It also provides real-time betting updates to show what other bettors are taking.
The live betting feature is located in the upper left corner of the app. This gives bettors quick access to current sporting events and gives them the ability to place live bets in seconds.
A current bonus available on the SugarHouse New Jersey app that we hope to see in Pennsylvania is 250MATCH. This bonus code will earn you $ 250 free on your first deposit.
Apple users in Pennsylvania will be able to download the SugarHouse app from the App Store when it launches. Android users will need to go to the SugarHouseCasino.com website to find the app.
SugarHouse offers one of the most user-friendly rewards programs of all online sports betting. The IRush Rewards program rewards players while they play. Whether it’s betting on sports or playing in the casino, the more you play, the more you win. The more points you earn, the higher your loyalty level. Points can be redeemed for bonuses at different loyalty levels. The bonuses you redeem may include small sports bets or bets in the casino. The best part of the rewards system, the bonuses come with a 1x rollover. Experienced players know how big a deal this is, as some casinos rollovers up to 100x!
Cash out bet
SugarHouse provides another cool feature that hopefully can make it to Pennsylvania. “Cash Out Betting” gives you the opportunity to redeem your current bet. If the bet is already in play but not yet finished, you may have the option to cash your bet at any time. The odds of payout are determined by how much you choose to win or lose, as well as how much time you have left.
Deposit / withdrawal methods
Credit / Debit Cards – This is the most common deposit method for most sports betting. Your account can be funded with a Visa or Mastercard. You can also make withdrawals from your debit card.
PayPal – PayPal is one of the best ways to fund and withdraw from your betting account. The micro fees associated with PayPal transfers are certainly worth the quick and secure transfer of your money.
ACH (E-Checks) – An electronic check acts like a real check. Sometimes this method can take a few days to go away. Electronic checks are a faster and easier way to withdraw than standard checks.
Prepaid Cards – Funding a Prepaid Card for a deposit is a quick and easy way to fund your account. It’s also a great way to withdraw your money from your SugarHouse account. It works like a debit card, once funded you can use your card anywhere. SugarHouse even offers its own brand of prepaid card.
Online Bill Payment – This is one of the most unique deposit methods in all sports betting. You can log into your bank account through the cashier in the SugarHouse app and approve your deposit amount. The amount of your deposit is called an “invoice”. Note that all banks will accept this method.
Before making any withdrawals, you will need to verify your account. You must verify your identity and that you are at least 21 years old. A copy of a photo ID and photos of all credit / debit cards used for deposit will need to be uploaded to the SugarHouse website. These items are usually not required until you try to opt out, but it is recommended that you do so during registration. Taking care of all verification issues during enrollment prevents withdrawals from being delayed.
SugarHouse Brick and Mortar Casino
Bookmaker SugarHouse opened in Philadelphia on December 15, 2018, in a temporary location. A larger room is currently under construction. Virtually anything that can be wagered on the land-based casino will be available for betting on the app. While the bookmaker is still waiting to be moved from its temporary location, it is still a great place to place a bet and watch the game. The SugarHouse Casino also offers plenty of activities, including a number of bars and restaurants. The casino currently offers over 3,000 slot machines and a wide variety of table games. Once the new sports fair is over, SugarHouse sportsbook will once again be a premier destination in Philadelphia.
