Best Online Sportsbooks in Pennsylvania

Jun 24, 2020

The Keystone State has been blessed with some of the biggest players in the mobile sports betting space since joining the list of states to legalize the practice – and competition for the Pennsylvania betting dollar is fierce. While not every sportsbook in the state is a guaranteed fit for every sports bettor, there are several options for even the most discerning wagerer.

Here’s a look at the best online sportsbooks in Pennsylvania:

FanDuel

FanDuel Sportsbook PA welcomes new sports bettors with a terrific offer: Make an initial deposit, and you will be awarded a free bet for up to $500. Once the deposit is approved, players can make their first bet. If they lose, FanDuel will reimburse the amount of the wager in betting credit. If they’re successful, they’re credited with the winnings.

There is no promo or referral code required for this bonus – simply sign up, deposit, and you’re automatically awarded a free first bet for up to $500. But you have to deposit at least $10 no later than seven days from the moment you sign up to be eligible for the free first bet offer. It isn’t the most generous deposit bonus available to Pennsylvania bettors, but it measures up rather well to the competition.

FanDuel Sportsbook feels like it’s been around for years – and that’s the ultimate compliment for a sports betting app still very much in its infancy. With a knockout interface, plenty of deposit and withdrawal options, a strong initial deposit offer and new promotions coming out regularly, Pennsylvania bettors would be hard-pressed to find a better sportsbook to trust with their money.


FoxBet

FOX Bet Pennsylvania isn’t messing around when it comes to welcoming new players to the app, offering up to $1,000 in deposit bonuses. Customers will receive a 50% deposit bonus (up to $500 on a $1,000 initial deposit). Users can also place a first bet with their deposited funds risk-free. A free bet of the same amount will be awarded up to $500 upon settlement of the wager.

A full deposit match would have been even better, but you can’t go wrong with a bonus that only requires you to play through 1x (meaning that, once you’ve wagered the amount of your deposit, it’s yours). This is one of the most generous deposit offers in the industry, and should draw plenty of new users for the foreseeable future.

There’s nothing overly flashy with FOX Bet Sportsbook – and that might actually work in its favor. It’s straightforward, both in appearance and function, and rewards sports bettors with one of the widest variety of creative bet types in the U.S. market. FOX Bet is a hit – so don’t hesitate to check it out if you’re within the Pennsylvania borders.


BetMGM

BetMGM Sportsbook offers quite a user-friendly bonus. After players sign up, they’re instructed to make their initial deposit. BetMGM then offers the player a free deposit match in the amount they’ve deposited all the way to $500. To claim the bonus, you’ll need to create an account at BetMGM and make your first deposit.

The deposit bonus is a 100% match up to $500, so even if you don’t have $500 to spare, you can still get in on the action. It’s a standard offer, but one that should attract plenty of attention.

It might not be the uncontested No. 1 sports betting app in Pennsylvania, but anyone just getting into the pastime would be hard-pressed to find a better place to get started. From a super-friendly first deposit risk-free bet to generous promotions geared toward handing out free bet credits to newcomers, BetMGM is a great sports betting app for the uninitiated, and a solid offering overall.


DraftKings

DraftKings Pennsylvania comes correct with an offer sports bettors will love, putting its best foot forward by offering a deposit bonus up to $500 along with a risk-free bet up to $500; the bonus requires a 25x play-through.

This bonus is many things to many people – and it’s one of the best in the industry, particularly if you’re planning on making a big initial deposit. Those of you in Pennsylvania who are looking to make an immediate deposit splash won’t do much better than this.

DraftKings might have been late arriving to the party in Pennsylvania, but its mobile offering is among the best in the state – and should continue to be so as it continues gaining a foothold in one of the most sports-hungry regions in the country.


SugarHouse

New SugarHouse Pennsylvania members will receive a 100% Deposit Match Bonus up to $250; the minimum bet required to be eligible for the promotion is $10.

While the deposit bonus cap might deter some high-rollers who are hoping for more return on their initial investment, this promotion is perfect for anyone just getting started in the space. Not only does it pay out for as little as a $10 initial plunge, it requires just a 1x rollover to convert – meaning you only need to wager what you initially put in to be eligible. With many sportsbooks requiring that players wager multiple times their initial investment, this is a wonderfully inclusive bonus for Pennsylvania residents.

If you can get past the hum-drum interface, there’s literally nothing we wouldn’t endorse with SugarHouse Sportsbook Pennsylvania. From its user-friendly deposit bonus to its overall ease of use to the incredible number of betting options for all tastes and budgets, this is one of the top sportsbooks in the United States.


 BetRivers

New BetRivers Pennsylvania members will receive a Deposit match up to $250. And unlike the majority of offerings, where players are forced to wager five times the bonus or more before they can claim it, BetRivers Sportsbook requires that players wager only the amount equal to the bonus – so if your deposit is $50, you only need to wager $50 total to claim your deposit bonus of $50.

This is without a doubt one of the most easily accessible deposits in the industry – and given the competition for sports betting dollars, it’s one of BetRivers’ strongest draws for new players.

There are minor issues with the mobile interface and the vig on prop bets, but these shouldn’t dissuade Pennsylvania bettors from giving BetRivers a try. The wide variety of bet types and props available, combined with a generous deposit bonus, make BetRivers well worth bettors’ time.


BetAmerica

BetAmerica Pennsylvania Sportsbook members will receive a 100% match on their first deposit up to $500.

This is one of the more intriguing bonus offers of any sportsbook operating with Pennsylvania’s borders; the bonus money is made available immediately, but you’ll need to be a rather successful bettor in order to see any of that bonus money converted into cash. That said, bettors have a full year in which to satisfy the bonus requirements, so you can slow-play your way to success if you like.

It’s a generous offer for those looking to build a nice betting cushion right out of the gate, but don’t expect to see any of that bonus turn into real-life folding money – and that restrictive rollover requirement keeps this offer a tier above the best options in the state.

Bettors have no shortage of sportsbook options in the state of Pennsylvania – but when it comes to finding an established brand with a lengthy track record in the industry, few can compete with BetAmerica. That said, the competition is fierce in the Keystone State – and BetAmerica’s prohibitive bonus offer leaves it a tier lower than the industry leaders.
