Last week, FanDuel became the 4th online sportsbook to go live in PA, joining sportsbooks from PlaySugarHouse, BetRivers and Parx to open since May. Because online casinos and sportsbooks are required to be partnered with PA casinos, FanDuel online sportsbook chose to join forces with the Valley Forge Casino.
Prior to offering a mobile sportsbook, FanDuel helped power the Valley Forge land-based sportsbook located in King of Prussia in the northwest Philadelphia suburbs. The launch of the FanDuel online sportsbook in PA comes with just over a month until the start of the NFL season, the height of the sports betting season. Additional online sportsbooks are expected by this fall.
