First licensed sportsbook in Philadelphia goes live Saturday, Dec. 15, at 10 a.m.

PHILADELPHIA — Dec. 15, 2018 — SugarHouse Casino announced today that its new “SugarHouse Casino Sportsbook” has successfully completed a two-day operational test period and received approval from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board to officially open for business.

“We’re thrilled to make Philly history as the city’s first licensed sportsbook,” said Cheryl Duhon, general manager of SugarHouse Casino. “If our soft launch was any indication, there’s a big demand among Philly sports fans and gamers to get in on the action.”

SugarHouse Casino’s Sportsbook will be open daily: Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to midnight; Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m.; Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m.; and Sundays from 9 a.m. to midnight. Guests must be at least 21 years old to wager. No one under 21 is permitted on SugarHouse Casino’s gaming floor.

SugarHouse Casino’s Sportsbook will offer betting on a wide array of sporting events including football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, college sports and more. Bets include but are not limited to straight bets, parlays, totals and in-game betting. 

Initially, bets are cash only, and winning tickets can be redeemed at the SugarHouse Sportsbook during operating hours or at the casino’s cashiers’ cage when the Sportsbook is closed.

The SugarHouse Sportsbook is located just inside the north entrance, across from the Poker Night in America Poker Room. This new addition occupies approximately 1,800 square feet, designed in the style of a luxury sports lounge. Club chairs and table seating accommodate approximately 70 guests. A state-of-the-art 14’ x 7’ LED video wall anchors the viewing area, along with 12 additional flat-screen, high-definition monitors. Food and beverage service is available.

 

SugarHouse Casino’s sports wagering operator is Rush Street Interactive PA, LLC, and its affiliates. Rush Street Interactive owns and operates PlaySugarHouse.com, an online casino and sportsbook in New Jersey, and was the first U.S. gaming operator to launch sports betting in South America.
