Parx Sportsbook Opens Up For PA Sports Betting

Parx Sportsbook Opens Up For PA Sports Betting

Parx Sportsbook has a soft opening for two days to test before officially welcoming all PA sports betting on Thursday, Jan. 10.

Coinciding perfectly with the Philadelphia Eagles returning to the NFL playoffs as defending Super Bowl champions, Parx Sportsbook in Bensalem, PA had a soft opening to sports betting in PA starting on Tuesday, Jan. 8 and if all goes well, the official fully-licensed opening will be on Thursday, Jan. 10. Joining Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Grantville, Sugarhouse Casino in Philadelphia and Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, more casinos in Pennsylvania look to sign up (and pay the $10 million PA sportsbook licensing fee) thanks to the ban on sports betting in the US being struck down last year by the Supreme Court.

PA Sports Betting Expands As New Casinos Join The Fray

Parx Sportsbook is now the fourth PA sportsbook to enter the state, and the third one from the Kambi Group. The four that are currently open are:

Two more seem to be on their way for an early 2019 opening:

  • Harrah's Philadelphia Sportsbook
  • Valley Forge Sportsbook

Presque Isle Downs & Casino has applied for a license for sports betting in PA as well, but they have not received approval from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board

Parx Casino, Kambi Group Look To Stand Out In PA Sports Betting Market

Of course, Parx Sportsbook has been loaded up on plays for the Eagles when it comes to betting on the NFL, but betting on the NBA, placing NHL bets and MLB bets are just as easy in their temporary spot for betting on sports in their 360 Lounge. That includes seven windows to place bets, 12 self-serve kiosks and huge TVs around the lounge. In addition, there are 30 more self-service kiosks throughout the casino for you to stop at and place your bets. The Kambi Group and Parx Casino are also investing $10 million to create a new, modern sportsbook as well, to really welcome sports betting in Pennsylvania and make it a comfortable, fun environment for wagering on sports.

After the testing is done and the official launch takes place on Thursday, Jan. 10, the sportsbook plans to be open seven days a week. But having a land-based sportsbook is not where Parx Casino and the Kambi Group is ending their expansion, as Parx representatives noted during the test phase that they plan on having online sports betting in the coming months. The success of Parx Sportsbook and sports betting in Pennsylvania will definitely set the tone for this kind of expansion in the Keystone State to come.
