Flutter Entertainment-owned FanDuel Group has launched a branded, standalone casino app for Pennsylvania players, while its licensing partner in the state, Boyd Gaming’s Valley Forge Casino, has announced that it will reopen to the public from June 26.
FanDuel had previously offered online casino games via its sports betting app in the state, but has now decided to roll out a separate product for the vertical – the first time the operator has launched such a product.
“Pennsylvania is a really exciting state for us as it represents the first state where we’ve introduced FanDuel Casino alongside our FanDuel Sportsbook product,” FanDuel’s general manager for casino Jesse Chemtob explained.
In related news, FanDuel’s licensing partner for Pennsylvania, Valley Forge Casino, has announced that it will reopen on June 26. The venue has been shuttered since March 17, when the state’s casinos were ordered to close to slow the spread of novel coronavirus (Covid-19).
