Pennsylvania Online Sports betting has been live for less than two months and there are only three online sportsbooks that have launched websites/apps that allows users to bet online at the moment. Sugarhouse Casino was the first sportsbook to roll out an online platform and since then only BetRivers and Parx Casino Sportsbook has came out with platforms for Pennsylvania.
BetRivers and Parx Casino Sportsbook just released their product on June 27th however none of these sportsbooks have been able to come out with an IOS app yet due to policy changes from Apple.
This is a huge portion of the sports betting market which these sportsbooks have not been able to tap due to Apple’s recent policy change this month. These sportsbooks must recreate their apps in the native IOS platform instead of rolling out the HTML5 platforms which they had already built. This change is devastating to some Sportsbooks but has helped out a few who were behind the ball on time. The two online sports betting powerhouses Fanduel and Draftkings have been given some extra time to get their Pennsylvania Online Sports Betting up and running since these other websites have had to restart their IOS platforms. Fanduel is partnered up with Valley Forge Casino Resort for their Pennsylvania Online Sports Betting and DraftKings are still racing to secure a partnership with one of the few remaining Casinos. The race is on to get the IOS app out and their is ground to be covered for the two industry leaders Fanduel and Draftkings.
