Pennsylvania Online Gambling Is Legal - Here's Where to Play!

Online gambling is legal in Pennsylvania! As of October 30th, 2017, the Senate, House of Representative and Governer of Pennsylvania have all approved and signed into law a bill making online gaming legal. We are early to the game and have compiled a list of all PA online casinos that you can view and get free play bonus codes for.

Pennsylvania Online Gambling is Legal!

The move to legalize online gambling in PA kicked off years ago, with many failed attempts to pass a law, generally blocked by lobbying groups from major Las Vegas Casinos. But finally, Governor Wolf signed the H 271 bill into law on Oct 30th. As of today, the next moves for the state are to actually write up all of the regulations for online gambling operators and then to hand out licenses. We predict that the first sites will start accepting players to signup in the second half of 2018.

At this point, it's impossible to know which online casino sites will launch and when as now licenses have been handed out. It's likely that PA follows suit with New Jersey and Delaware by offering licensed first to any company that owns and operates a land-based casino in the state. You can see the most likely pa online casino list on our website. Of course, we expect major players like Parx Casino, Rivers Online Casino, Sugarhouse Casino, and Sands Casino to quickly jump on board.

Daily Fantasy Sports Sites in PA

Since DFS is already a mature industry, we expect PA regualtors to hand out licenses to Fandual, DraftKings, Darft, Fastpick, and Fantasy Draft. If you have to get a DFS promo code you can see our list of the best DFS sites in the US.

PA Online Poker - Anything to get excited about?

Poker sites will open up in PA just like they have in Delaware, Nevada, and New Jersey, but we don't expect them to take off much. Legal Online Poker has been a bit of a let-down given that prize pools are still small due to the extremely limite player bases. With PA opening up this will improve, but might not compete with the illegal operators still accepting players in the US.

PA Sportsbooks

The most controversial form of online gambling has been legalized in PA, but it's still federally illegal, so it's completely possible that this type of gaming will never actually come to PA. Nevada is the only state that is able to offer online sportsbetting because they've recevied a special waiver from the federal government. As of today, there's no telling if PA will be eligible for a waiver from the US government allowing that type of gambling to exist. New Jersey online casinos have been petitioning the US Supreme Court to allow for nationwide legalization of online sportsbetting to occur.
