Pennsylvania would not offer the modality in time for the Super Bowl, which takes place next month. The Super Bowl is historically the biggest sports event in the United States.
Doug Harbach, spokesman of PGCB revealed that no online operator has received the authorisation to offer online sports betting services. “With the greater complexities of online gambling compared to setting up a bricks and mortar sportsbook, the latter just came logically,” said Harbach.
Total revenue from sports betting in Pennsylvania recorded US$2 million last month, half of it from Rivers Casino, US$641k from SugarHouse and US$299k from Hollywood Casino.
