Spotlight on SugarHouse Casino

1001 N Delaware Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19125(877)

What a sweet spot!

SugarHouse Casino is located in Pennsylvania on its eastern border with New Jersey, right on the edge of the Delaware river. SugarHouse gets its name because it sits on the site of the former Jack Frost Sugar Refinery. The property is currently in “Phase 1” which features slots, video poker table games, and poker, along with an event center and several retail and dining options. Future phases will add a 500-room hotel and expand the existing amenities.

The casino

SugarHouse’s large (1.3million square foot) casino floor has many gaming options to entice and entertain visitors.

Slot Machines

SugarHouse Casino features all the modern slot machines gamblers expect in a destination this size. They all have modern bill-acceptors and coin-less paper ticket cashout printers. Stakes range from penny machines to exclusive high roller options and many feature jackpot payouts. Some of SugarHouse’s most popular slot machine options are:

  • Thunder Cash
  • Grand Dragon
  • Dollar Streak

Table Games

Players have a period of time to make their bets and the hand begins. Wins and losses are immediately recorded on the players terminal – which functions like a slot machine with bill acceptors and paper cashout tickets.

Online gaming

As of August, 2018, Sugarhouse Casino hasn’t entered Pennsylvania’s nascent online gaming market, but it shouldn’t be long until they do. They have already applied for the state’s $10 million license that allows online slots, table games, and peer-to-peer gaming (geek-speak for online poker). It is expected that they will use their in-house tech company Rush Street Interactive to create and manage their online slots and table game offerings. Who Sugarhouse will partner with to enter the online poker market is unknown at this time.

Pennsylvanian’s eager to gamble online in the meantime should consider the Pennsylvania online lottery. It is fun and easy to play, it is completely legal, and you can win real money. What’s more, new players receive $5 free to play when they sign up.
