Pennsylvania’s Parx Casino and online gaming software developer and provider, GAN have recently announced that they have inked a multi-year deal to offer sports betting both at the land-based casinos and online. Officials from both companies issued the statement of the partnership jointly say that they have “executed a material contract to offer sports betting in both the retail and online channels in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.”

Parx Casino was the first of the Keystone State’s 13 licensed casinos to apply for the discounted interactive gaming licenses that were going for $10 million. It was at this time that it was announced that Parx Casino and GAN would be teaming up for a sports betting offering.

“Following the execution of this extension and amendment, GAN now offers clients a Platform equipped with multiple options for integrated Sports betting to be launched seamlessly alongside GAN’s market-leading Internet casino product. We welcome the opportunity to deliver Sports betting in the retail channel, as well as online, through GAN’s unique Platform containing patented technology,” Jeff Berman, the chief commercial officer of GAN, said.

Since GAN will be the sole provider for both sports betting and online casino offerings at Parx Casino, customers will be able to use one all-access ‘Parx Account for all of their gaming activities. The players will, therefore, be able to play online games and place sports wagers, both in-person and online, from funds housed in a unified online wallet.

“By leveraging GAN’s platform, Parx Casino will have the opportunity to launch retail and online regulated sports betting together with online gaming in Pennsylvania later this year, subject to the regulatory approval of the PGCB [Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board],” read a statement that was issued by GAN.

Parx Casino will be adding sports betting to its already stellar arsenal of gambling entertainment as the 170,000 square foot floor features 3,300 slot machines, 100 live table games, a premier poker room housing 80 poker tables as well as live racing and simulcast action.

Even though the Keystone State’s gaming industry is still being drawn back by some rather exorbitant fees and tax rates, Parx is seemingly willing to go the extra mile.

“GAN has ably demonstrated its abilities with both its overall platform and its integration capability for existing major clients. By leveraging GAN’s platform, Parx Casino will have the opportunity to launch retail and online regulated sports betting together with online gaming in Pennsylvania later this year, subject to the regulatory approval of the PGCB,” John Dixon, the CTO for Parx Casino’s parent company commented on the partnership.
