PlaySugarHouse Online Casino bonus code May 2021

Last verified: May 3, 2021

The SugarHouse Casino has launched its online casino brand in Pennsylvania and it’s called PlaySugarHouse. The PlaySugarHouse online gaming site including a sportsbook and a full suite of online versions of traditional casino pit and machine games has been up and running in neighboring New Jersey for a few years already and finally, in 2019, PlaySugarHouse has come to the Keystone State.

The PlaySugarHouse sportsbook launched in May, 2019 and the PlaySugarHouse online casino games launched in July 2019.

Note: PlaySugarHouse is fully rebranding as BetRivers by 2021 – you can learn more about the site at our BetRivers Review, but in short – it’s the same company, great support, offer, and software.

A matching deposit bonus code 250MATCH

PlaySugarHouse is now offering a pretty sweet offer for first-time depositors. It’s a 100% matching deposit bonus up to $250 with a 1x play through  requirement. The bonus code you use to activate this reward is 250MATCH and here’s how it works:

When you sign up at PlaySugarHouse and make your first deposit, be sure to enter 250MATCH as the bonus code. As long as your first deposit is at least $10, PlaySugarHouse will match the amount of that deposit and add it to your account. The only requirement is that you make an equivalent amount in wagers before the bonus is released to you.

As an example, suppose you wanted to maximize the amount of the bonus and made your initial deposit on the site at least $250. First, be sure to enter the 250MATCH bonus code when depositing. Then, simply make $250 (or more) worth of wagers on the PlaySugarHouse site.

Only 1x Wager Applies, Playable in PA Only

250MATCH has only a 1x play through requirement!

This bonus is attractive for a few reasons. First is that it’s a 100% matching bonus. That’s a healthy amount. Second, the maximum bonus is $250, which is significant, especially for first-time online bettors. Third, and perhaps most important, there is a very low 1x play through requirement. To be eligible to receive your bonus, you must only play through the amount of your deposit once – i.e. deposit $100, make $100 in bets, get a $100 bonus added to your account, win or lose.

To compare, other online casino bonuses are sometimes 2x, 5x, or even 10x play through requirements before the bonus is released to you. This low 1x play through requirement is quite an introductory offer and Pennsylvanian’s interested in playing on the PlaySugarHouse site should jump on it.

Again, be sure to enter 250MATCH when making your initial deposit.

Betting sports at PlaySugarHouse

Sports Bettors familiar with the new (as of December 2018) sportsbook at the SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia will be very familiar with the mobile version of their sportsbook which launched in late May 2019.
