The Golden Nugget’s long journey into the state of Pennsylvania is closing in on the finish line. 

The Golden Nugget ponied up the $8 million in fees to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. $4 million for the slot license and another $4 million for table games.

Golden Nugget has enjoyed immense success in New Jersey and will look to do the same in Pennsylvania. But what sets the Golden Nugget apart from the top online casinos in PA that are already established?

Golden Nugget Online Casino Expectations in PA

The Golden Nugget has been the number one casino in New Jersey since online casinos were legalized in 2013. They were also recently the first to eclipse the $1 billion mark in revenue during the third quarter of 2021.

“Golden Nugget Online Gaming continues to pride itself in making the right investments in product, marketing, and technology without wavering from our ultimate goal of profitability – as we have achieved in New Jersey,” said Golden Nugget Online Gaming Chair and CEO Tilman Fertitta during the third GNOG Q3 report last year. “With successful launches in West Virginia and Virginia now under our belt, we look forward to expanding into new jurisdictions where we can bring our players a premium player experience.”

The Golden Nugget Online Casino is currently available in Arizona, Michigan, New Jersey, Virginia, and West Virginia. 

Unfortunately, we don’t quite know when the Golden Nugget will officially launch in Pennsylvania. But, we can take a look at our neighbor to the east at some of the NJ features that are currently in the Garden State for what to expect. 

Exclusive Games To Look For In PA

Golden Nugget NJ players have over 1,000 different choices in games to play ranging from Year of the Tiger themes slots to Slingo, which is a play on the popular game of Bingo, played in firehouses around the country. There are also several live dealer games available, including baccarat, roulette, blackjack, and three-card poker

And while it’s unlikely that Pennsylvania will have over 1,000 games to choose from when Golden Nugget officially launches, we should see most of the well-known online slot favorites and Golden Nugget exclusives, such as Megaways, Stepper, Video Slot, Baccarat Squeeze, and maybe even the Ghost Pepper Stepper game. The New Jersey option also has video poker options. Including the popular Ultimate X Poker Three Play, Five Play, and Ten Play.

Some games are even built-in in conjunction with some pop culture flare.

  • The scratchers available are a Wheel of Fortune game, The Voice, and the return of Slimer in a Ghostbusters theme. 
  • One of the newer games that have been added in New Jersey includes a take on the popular George Clooney movie “From Dusk Till Dawn” animated slot, which puts players right in the thick of the action.
  • Also new to the NJ app is the Monopoly Lunar New Year board game-themed slot. 

The Golden Nugget offers fast and secure banking methods to fund your account, which includes, but are not limited to PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, and American Express
