Earlier this week, Greenwood Racing requested for the renewal of its license from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. The firm is the operator of the Parx Casino and Racetrack. In anticipation of Pennsylvania mobile bookie rollout, the firm said that it is developing a platform for that.
Parx told bookie pay per head industry insiders that the PGCB can test the app by the end of the May. If everything goes according to plan, the app will launch in June. Also, Parx is working on an online casino app that will be ready by July.
The PGCB approved the renewal of the casino’s gaming license. Once the first Pennsylvania mobile bookie app goes online, the state will join New Jersey and Nevada as states with online sports wagering.

New Jersey claimed 80 percent of sports wagers come from online bets. In fact, gamblers prefer the method because of the convenience it brings to them. You can find out how convenient it is through a pay per head demo.
Aside from the mobile sports betting app, Parx is also investing in the casino’s permanent sportsbook. In fact, it will open to the public it this summer just in time for football season. One thing is for certain, Parx will have the first mobile sports betting app in the state.
At present, there are eight sportsbooks in Pennsylvania. FanDuel operates a sportsbook in the state at the Valley Forge Casino Resort. In addition, it is the online partner for the Meadowlands Racetrack in New Jersey. The latter also has a deal with PointsBet for its online betting operations.
FanDuel doesn’t have an online presence in Pennsylvania yet. According to a company spokesperson, they don’t have any official date for the launch of its online operations in the state.
