Leading PA sportsbook operator, FanDuel has launched their standalone online casino app in Pennsylvania as it seeks to attract customers that are either stuck at home or unwilling to risk heading back to the state’s land-based casinos on the back of the global pandemic health crisis.
The FanDuel standalone online casino app debuted in the Keystone State last week for both iOS and Android users after previously only been accessible through the company’s sportsbook and DFS platform.
In the first instance, FanDuel online casino users will be able to place live wagers on roulette, video poker, blackjack and online slots. As the app reaches maturity, in time it will be expect to have a diverse and expanded game library.
For those that also like to place sports bets as an accompaniment to their online casino wagering, the FanDuel online casino will still be available inside the FanDuel sportsbook app if required, and for existing customers that already have an FanDuel account can continue to use the same login for the FanDuel Casino app making the transition a seamless one.
The games library of the new app will include video poker, roulette and blackjack, in addition to many popular slot titles, including Wheel of Fortune and the progressive jackpot giant, Divine Fortune. The table games will feature “One Touch” mobile-first versions designed specifically to make use of the functions of a smartphone’s touchscreen interface.
Fanduel’s PA Expansion Comes On The Back Of Steady Online Casino Growth
Pennsylvania’s online casino industry has steadily grown over the past 12 months, as new sites and apps have launched in the Keystone State. Pennsylvania is setting itself up to give New JerNew Jerseysey serious competition for market dominance as the top online casino revenue producer in the United States.
As the Pennsylvania market grows exponentially and continues to add quality online casino options such as the FanDuel app, players will have even more exciting online casino gaming options to choose from. It will be intriguing to watch how the industry unfolds and how the app is received by the state’s players. Don’t forget, FanDuel is the leading online sportsbook already in Pennsylvania.
As a result, if the PA market continues to hit new highs when it comes to revenue earnings over the next few months, then you can expect to see the FanDuel Online Casino App at or near the top of the operators earnings list. With bricks-and-mortar casinos in the state only just beginning to open up now and with many people still unwilling to mingle in large numbers, look for the online casinos revenues to continue to post record highs for at least another month or two.
Fanduel Management as Excited as Online Casino Fans
Jesse Chemtob, FanDuel General Manager and Vice President of online casinos at the FanDuel Group of companies wrote excitedly in a press release;
“Pennsylvania is a really exciting state for us as it represents the first state where we’ve introduced FanDuel Casino alongside our FanDuel Sportsbook product,” wrote Mr Chemtob explaining that Pennsylvania markedly beat neighboring online casino giant New Jersey to being first to launch the new product. It is a decided strategy shift.
“We’ve seen great engagement and interest with our FanDuel Casino product amongst our sportsbook customers to date and we view this product evolution as a natural next step to provide a full-service gaming experience to our Pennsylvania customers.” Mr Chemtob added.
As an additional bonus for customers in the Keystone State, FanDuel offered to refund up to $200 in losses for Pennsylvania-based players in the 24 hours directly following the online casino app launch.
