Last Thursday, renowned gaming and hospitality operator Caesars Entertainment Corporation launched an online gambling site in the Keystone State. Known as Caesars Online Casino, the new iGaming platform launched in collaboration with Harrah’s Philadelphia and becomes the ninth online gaming site to go live in the state.
The launch of the new online gambling site was, of course, overseen by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB). As expected, Caesars Online Casino was first subjected to a couple of days of testing after which it was given the green light to launch full operations.
What Should Pennsylvanians Expect?
Well, Caesars Entertainment has a track record of rolling out its products in phases. For now, the online gambling platform is only available on the web and on Android-powered devices. An iOS option is probably in the works especially bur might come much later since they have to comply with Apple’s policy regarding the use of native apps on its devices.
As far as the games collection is concerned, Caesars’ very robust portfolio of games will definitely be making its way to its Pennsylvanian site. However, for the time being, the players will only have access to 12 slot titles. These are Krono Unleashed, Starmania, Raging Rhino, 88 Fortunes, Bruce Lee, Mad Mad Monkey, Zeus, Spartacus, Celestial King, Zeus III, Monopoly Mega Movers, and Montezuma.
While many players will certainly be very happy with what is on offer now, the operator is definitely going to puff up its catalog just like it did with its operation in New Jersey. As such, it should not be too long before gamers in the Keystone State are able to enjoy a more device range of games. This should include both video poker and popular table game titles.
Enticing Bonus Options
As expected of any modern online casino, there has to be some sort of bonus to entice gamers to sign up. Caesars Online Casino is offering a 100 percent bonus match up to $300 to new players on their first deposits. To be eligible for this bonus, your first deposit will have to be at least $10.
Moreover, the players will also be able to accumulate rewards credits that are more or less the same as the comp points patrons receive at Caesars Entertainment’s land-based casinos.
Capitalizing on The Growth of Online Gambling Across the United States
Needless to say, the move by Caesars Entertainment and many other online gambling operators is quite opportunistic, to say the least. The coronavirus pandemic has had a devastating impact on the casino and sports betting industry but it seems the online gambling industry has not suffered the same fate. There has been a significant uptick in online gambling and alternative betting options and it is great to see that there are companies that stepping to meet that demand.
