During its open hours, its customers will be able to place bets on a wide range of sporting activities including those from the NFL, NBA, NHL, PGC, NCAA, professional tennis, boxing, UFC, rugby, NASCAR, MLS, Premier League Soccer, La Liga and Bundesliga.

Moreover, at the center of the room sit 28-foot wide video wall that features a ticker at the top to show both current scores and upcoming games.

Digital Betting Coming Soon

A short while before launching the retail sportsbook in Pennsylvania, Kindred launched a Unibet-branded online sports betting operation in New Jersey where it also has a retail sportsbook. Naturally, following the launch of the retail sportsbook in Pennsylvania, a digital sports betting option should follow soon.

Fortunately, Kindred has confirmed that it indeed has plans to launch a digital sports betting option as well as an online casino in the near future. These digital betting options are also set to include services that are tailored for both iOS and Android-powered mobile devices.

Pennsylvania’s gambling industry continues to grow rapidly and with more operators gaining interest in the market, there is certainly a lot that is in store. Gaming revenue is definitely going to increase and since there is a decent number of competing business, customers will be treated to multiple great gambling options.
