The third PA online sportsbook is live this week with the launch of the BetRivers PA mobile sportsbook. The sportsbook joins offerings from PlaySugarHouse as well as Parx Casino, each going live over the last month.
New players signing up to BetRivers are welcomed with a 100% up to $250 bonus on a first deposit, the same bonus that is available for sister site PlaySugarHouse. Players can earn the bonus by playing at the real money games and generating a 1x wager requirement, a very generous amount bonus that could attract players to the sports book by itself.
Once players have earned the first deposit bonus, they can still earn rewards with the iRush Rewards Program, which BetRivers says is the premier VIP program in the state. BetRivers sportsbettors can earn a variety of rewards based on the number of points that are generated based on a rolling 30 day period. Be careful though, the points begin expiring after 30 days.
Still, if you stay on top of the rewards and use your points and stay active you will receive an impressive amount of rewards over a dozen levels.
As far the online sportsbook itself is concerned, players can place wagers through most major bet types including straight wagers, moneyline, spread betting, parlays, teasers and more. The BetRivers live betting platform allows sports fans to place money as the action is happening, with betting lines updated in real timing, offering players a unique gaming experience.
You will find a large selection of sports to wager on as well, with everything from major sports (baseball, football, basketball, hockey) to other sports such as MMA, soccer and more at your fingertips.
To get started, you need to be in Pennsylvania at the time of creating of account creation and making a first deposit. Deposit options include credit card, bank transfers, and ewallet options such as Neteller.
Pennsylvanians will need to verify their identity and be required to use geoloation tools to ensure they are located in the state while they are making bets and depositing.
The launch of the BetRivers sportsbook comes just ahead the imminent launch of online gambling to the state, which is expected in mid-July in a coordinated launch by a handful of PA casinos. By the NFL season, sports bettors will not only be able to bet on the NFL but also be able to place wagers in an online casinos. Now that’s something for PA online gamblers to get excited about.
