Is Sports Betting Legal in Pennsylvania?

Sports betting is legal in Pennsylvania.

First approved by the state legislature in October 2017, the state was allowed to take its first bet in May 2018, after the Supreme Court announced it had struck down the federal ban. The state’s high tax rates dissuaded potential partners for several months, but after nearly half a year of stalemates and regulatory approvals, the state took its first bet in December 2018.

Where Can You Bet Sports Online in Pennsylvania?

Online sports betting has lagged behind in-person betting. While multiple casinos were taking bets by the end of 2018, online sites won’t likely launch until sometime early in 2019. Because they haven’t commenced operations, it’s hard to tell which sites will be available. But it’s a safe bet all five of the land-based casinos that have applied to take in-person wagers will hop on board with a complimentary online offering.

Names are yet to be determined, but the following gaming entities will likely have an online sports betting portal sometime in 2019.

  • Parx Casino and Racing
  • Harrah’s Philadelphia
  • Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course
  • SugarHouse Casino
  • Rivers Casino

How Do You Sign Up for Online Sports Betting in Pennsylvania?

Details will still need to be finalized by providers, but expect a similar smooth process as has rolled out in neighboring New Jersey. Players will need various forms of identification to sign up through an app or website, and will have an age requirement. All players will also need to be within the Pennsylvania borders in order to play, as the games will be blocked otherwise.

It also appears Pennsylvania will not require players to register in person at a casino, as is the method in Nevada. This makes playing even easier and more accessible.

When Did Pennsylvania Sports Betting Became Legal?

First approved by the state legislature in October 2017, the state was technically allowed to take its inaugural bet in May 2018, after the Supreme Court announced it had struck down the federal ban.
