Whether you are playing slots at its just-launched online casino or sports betting, Parx is aiming to make the experience as seamless as possible.
While the sites are integrated, there are two separate sign-up offers, one for each vertical.
According to Parx customer service, yes, users are eligible to receive both initial promotions for the online casino and the sportsbook.
Testing for Parx’s online casino concludes on Tuesday. If the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) gives its approval, it’s ready for 24/7 action.
Parx and HollywoodCasino.com were the first to launch online gaming in Pennsylvania on July 15. As a heatwave threatens to roast the state, it couldn’t come at a better time. There’s no need to leave the comforts of an air-conditioned home to play. Parx Online Casino and Parx Online Sportsbook are available on desktop and Android app. If you already downloaded the app for sports betting, you’re all set.
There is still no Apple app option yet. Here’s why.
Parx Online Casino promotion
Parx Online Casino is matching first deposits up to $500 with promo code PARX 500. You can use the bonus funds for online games only. Even if you have already deposited in the sportsbook, the promo code for the casino bonus is still available for one-time use.
Five Benjamins is a hefty match, so be sure to read the fine print. There are big things to know in the tiny print:
- The bonus comes with a 20x playthrough requirement. A playthrough requirement is a stipulated amount of play a player has to log before any bonus funds are available for withdrawal from their account. It varies from game to game. For slots, it’s a 20x requirement. For roulette, it’s 40x. And for video poker and other table games, the rate is 200x.
- Bonus rounds on slot games don’t count toward wagering requirements.
- Promotion expires 30 days from the date of deposit.
- Restricted bonus funds are only usable for online casino wagering. You cannot use it for sports betting or retail casino play.
Parx Sportsbook promotion
Parx Sportsbook continues to offer $250 risk-free bet with first deposit. Players don’t need a promo code. Players need to deposit at least $10 and place a bet. If that bet loses, Parx refunds it up to $250 with bonus bet money.
Some terms and conditions you should know for Parx Sportsbook:
- Bonus bet money is only usable on sports bet. You must wager it all at least once before you can withdraw.
- You must use free bets in full and cannot be divided into multiple bets.
- Free bet must be used in 10 days from the date it was awarded.

What does online gaming mean for casinos?
Online gambling for Pennsylvania is finally here. A 2017 Pennsylvania law allowed a massive gambling expansion. For a license fee of $10 million, the state’s casino could operate online gambling websites and apps.
PGCB Director of Communication Doug Harbach gave his thoughts on the new age of online gaming for casinos in the Commonwealth.
“Brick-and-mortar casinos are the owners for the online license for sports wagering and casino games. It gives them the opportunity not to lose revenue, but to gain overall revenue. I think it will be a positive.”
