Harrah’s Philadelphia becomes third PA casino to apply for sports betting

Harrah’s Philadelphia casino and racetrack has become the third establishment in the state of Pennsylvania to apply for a sports betting license.

The Caesars owned establishment intends to offer mobile, land-based and interactive sports betting.

The interactive sports betting services will be managed by Caesars subsidiary, Caesars Interactive Entertainment LLC.

The application submitted to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board states that Harrah’s will use Scientific Games to provide “certain sports wagering equipment and the sports wagering engine.”

Harrah’s will now join the likes of Parx Casino and Hollywood Casino, both of which have submitted applications for sports betting licenses.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is expected to start considering applications for sports betting licenses in October.

According to the state law only casinos and racinos with slot machine licenses can apply for a sports betting license.

At the moment there are 12 qualifying establishments in the state and another one on the way, however with a $10m application fee it is unclear how many establishments will be applying for a sports betting license in the future.
