On Friday, FanDuel introduced its online casino network in Pennsylvania bringing the total number of live online casinos in Pennsylvania to six.
FanDuel joins Pennsylvania’s five other online casino offerings which currently include offers from Hollywood, Parx, PokerStars, SugarHouse and Unibet.
Presently, SugarHouse and PokerStars Casino are the market leaders in Pennsylvania’s online casino space and FanDuel would hope to compete with those at the top of the board in Pennsylvania’s online slots and table games market.
FanDuel Casino kicked off Friday with 12 online slot games and five table games online. While the range of games tends to be small compared to other online casinos that have been around for longer, over time the number of games and styles will increase. In fact, it’s common for online casinos like FanDuel Casino to start with a smaller amount of games that are hand-selected to be the best and most popular by the operators.
Players can expect FanDuel to follow the model set by other companies— more games that will help build up the library over time should follow.
FanDuel Casino is allowed via FanDuel’s agreement with Valley Forge Casino in King of Prussia, a suburb of Philadelphia, to offer online slots and table games in the State. The two firms are also collaborating to sell FanDuel’s sportsbook product where bettors from Pennsylvania can wager on different online and in-person sports betting markets at the casino.
Although the two firms have partnered to deliver FanDuel’s Online Casino and the FanDuel Sportsbook, it is not planned to do the same at this time for any online poker items.
PokerStars is the only online poker room to be launched in Pennsylvania, which was launched in November and remains the only online poker site operating in the state under Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board approval.
FanDuel currently runs two online casinos in the U.S. with the launch Friday. The online casino in Pennsylvania is now available from within the company’s FanDuel sportsbook app to Pennsylvania bettors. The company also runs one of New Jersey’s largest casinos, marketed by its parent company under the BetFair branding it inherited.
FanDuel Casino is currently only available on iOS and Android devices in Pennsylvania.
