A new online casino has launched in the Keystone State.
Churchill Downs Incorporated (CDI) has announced the launch of a BetAmerica-branded online casino in Pennsylvania.
The launch of the BetAmerica online casino comes after CDI launched its online BetAmerica sportsbook in Pennsylvania in December 2019.
BetAmerica President Ian Williams said: “We are thrilled to expand upon our existing product offering in Pennsylvania and now give players a place to enjoy both online casino and online sports wagering from a single account.”
The BetAmerica online casino will give Pennsylvanians access to more than 40 games and slots which include blackjack and roulette.
BetAmerica in the US
Following the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in 2018, BetAmerica has worked to establish a foothold in several states. Currently, BetAmerica’s online sportsbook platform is available in the states of New Jersey, Indiana and Pennsylvania.
In November 2019, CDI launched its BetAmerica-branded land-based sportsbook at Rising Star Casino Resort in Rising Sun Indiana thanks to a deal between CDI and Full House Resorts. In a separate deal between CDI and Full House Resorts, CDI will have the opportunity to offer sports betting at Bronco Billy’s Casino and Hotel in Cripple Creek, Colorado.

Pennsylvania is one of the few US states to authorise online sports betting and online casino gaming. At the time of writing, bettors in the Keystone state have access to seven online sportsbooks which include Unibet, DraftKings, FanDuel, SugarHouse, Rivers, Parx and Fox Bet.
In July 2019, Pennsylvania’s online casino market went live with the launch of Rush Street’s PlaySugarHouse online casino. Since then, several online casinos have launched in the state including Hollywood online casino, Unibet online casino, PokerStars Casino, Parx online casino and BetRivers online casino.
