Pennsylvania bettors now have another option for online sports betting and casino gaming.
Last week, Kindred Group completed the launch of its Unibet branded online sportsbook and casino in the state of Pennsylvania.
With the launch of Unibet’s online sportsbook, bettors in the Keystone State now have access to a seventh online sportsbook. Unibet also launched its online casino platform making it the fourth online casino to serve the state.
Kindred’s US senior vice president Manuel Stan said: “After a successful launch of our betting lounge, Unibet Sportsbook at Mohegan Sun Pocono, we are thrilled to take the partnership with Mohegan Sun online and bring the Pennsylvanian guests a state-of-the-art online gambling experience, including the best online casino games and an impressive online sportsbook.”
Aviram Alroy, vice president of interactive gaming at Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment said: “We’re thrilled to introduce to our customers an opportunity to place bets and game online within the state borders.
“Our sportsbook lounge is a highly engaging and joyful experience on-premises and Kindred Group are able to extend that experience online through our strategic partnership.”
Unibet in Pennsylvania
In January, Kindred announced a partnership with Mohegan Sun Pocono to bring the Unibet sports betting and casino brand to the Keystone State. In September, Kindred launched a Unibet branded land-based sportsbook at the Mohegan Sun casino.
Pennsylvania is the second state to feature Unibet’s online sports betting platform. Unibet initially entered the US sports betting market through a partnership with Hard Rock Atlantic City. The online sportsbook brand officially launched its online betting platform in New Jersey in September.
In early November, Unibet struck a multi-year partnership with the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles which will see Unibet become an official partner of the team.
