Update on

Earlier this week, renowned land-based gambling operator Parx Casino officially unveiled its online and mobile sports betting offerings in the Keystone State. The three-day test phase which officially kicked off on Monday would allow the state’s gaming control board to decide whether the operator is ready to go full-swing with its very lucrative sports betting offerings. During that period, Parx operated for limited hours and only took deposits during specific hours as the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board monitored its processes – the goal was to ensure that everything was working and all the necessary safeguards were in place.

Neat Set Of Options

Since the online gambling vertical is still in its nascent stages in Pennsylvania, the banking options are yet to mature. However, this does not mean that online sports bettors are stuck with only bad options. For now, the players have the option of using bank transfer, cashier’s check, check or funding in person via cash at the casino cage. They even have the options of using a Parx pre-paid card or the PayNearMe function that can be found at CVS, 7-Eleven as well as Family Dollar Stores.

Banking and payments aside, the behemoth Pennsylvania casino operator is also bringing its best offerings in terms of bonuses and promotions and this will definitely give it an upper hand in the state’s very competitive gambling market. The most notable ones are two promotions that the casino intends to use to attract new customers – the first is an initial risk-free bet of up to $250 and the second is a $10 free bet that the new players are awarded just for registering.

Rivers Casino Approved for Online Sports Betting

In similar news, after a short period of waiting, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board finally gave Rivers Casino’s online sports betting site and mobile apps to begin operating full-time. Just like Parx Casino, the online sports betting offering first went live for a successful two-day test period earlier this week and passed all of the gaming control board’s test. Some of the aspects of the operation that were assessed included the handling of financial accounting, responsible gambling, customer interactions as well as geolocation controls.

Fortunately, for the casino’s customers, the bettors will be able to open sports betting accounts using checking accounts, debits cards, credit cards, and PayPal among others. Hopefully, over the next few months, the online sports betting and online gambling platform will expand the range of banking options that they offer in order to ensure that more customers have access to their services. The sooner this is sorted out, the better.
