Pennsylvania March

The Golden Nugget casino app features more than 500 slots and classic table games including blackjack and roulette, as well as exclusive games such as Golden Nugget American Roulette and Golden Nugget Blackjack.

Pennsylvania becomes Golden Nugget Online Gaming’s fourth state, after Michigan, New Jersey and West Virginia. DraftKings, which acquired Golden Nugget Online Gaming in May 2022, already runs casino apps in each of those four states, as well as in Connecticut.

“We’re thrilled to announce that Golden Nugget Online Gaming’s mobile casino is now available to customers in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” DraftKings’ North America president, Matt Kalish, said.

“The app is powered by our leading technology, which dynamically brings hundreds of popular casino games and exclusive content to our customers’ fingertips. Pennsylvanians can enjoy superior customer service, rewarding promotions and a smooth interface while playing on Golden Nugget Online Gaming.”

Pennsylvania gambling revenue hits $467m in July

By launching in Pennsylvania, Golden Nugget Online Gaming joins another of the leading markets in the US.

In July, gambling revenue in Pennsylvania increased 8.9% year-on-year to $467.0m in July, driven by growth across the igaming and sports betting segments.

Monthly revenue in Pennsylvania was ahead of $429.1m in July 2022 and 6.0% higher than $440.5m in June this year.

Focusing on igaming, revenue for this segment increased by 34.8% year-on-year to $132.9m. This included $94.9m in online slots revenue, up 31.9% and $35.4m in internet table games revenue – a rise of 48.0%.

In terms of Golden Nugget Online Gaming’s competition, Hollywood Casino at Penn National led this segment with $54.4m in igaming revenue. Valley Forge Casino Resort was some way behind in second on $29.2m, followed by Rivers Casino Philadelphia with $26.8m.

Retail slots remained the primary source of revenue by some margin, generating a total of $214.7m during the month.
