With casinos across the country shut down, gamblers are flocking online to enjoy playing games online. The revenue bump has also helped casinos ease the pain of their retail locations temporary closing. On Friday, Pennsylvania online casino players will get yet another option when the DrafKings PA online casino goes live.
It will not be the first casino to the state. The Hollywood Casino, PlaySugarHouse and BetRivers are among the online casino that went live in the state. With the DraftKings online casino opening, players now can bet sports and play casino games under one world-class roof.

DraftKings enters the state through a partnership with Penn National Gaming, which operates the Hollywood Casino and already has launched the Hollywood Casino online. The casino underwent a three-day soft-launch, before it was approved by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board on Thursday.
What can players expect when DraftKings PA casino opens?
The DraftKings soft-launch commences on Thursday before the online casino goes live 24/7 on May 1st. Players can enjoy a variety of games once the DraftKings online casino opens on Friday. Players can access the games via the “DraftKings Sportsbook app,” which is available for mobile users on Android and iOS devices.
Despite the fact that the DraftKings Online Sportsbook is available in around a half-dozen states, the casino has not been as prevalent, previously only available in New Jersey. Even with limited availability the DraftKings Casino has still received high marks from players for their games and promotions.
Like many online casinos, slot games will dominate the game offerings, but there will also be various forms of video poker, blackjack and roulette. Live dealer games are also offered in DraftKings New Jersey with the games expected to come to Pennsylvania as well.
The DraftKings Online Casino also has a couple of attractive opt-in offers available to players. At launch, the $200 Blackjack bonus allows players to receive a refund of up to $200 on any blackjack loses within the first 24 hours of playing, essentially making the games nearly-risk free. The only catch is that players are paid back in Draftkings bonuses.
Players can also take part in another blackjack bonus when hitting two blackjacks in a row. Achieving this feat will yield $20 in Game Credits. Also, be sure to check out the DraftKings Rewards section for information on Daily Slot bonuses.
