Mohegan Sun Pocono, partnered with Unibet, has ambitiously launched both an online sportsbook and an online casino.
Unibet, which is owned by European gaming giant Kindred, has created a single-access online site.
Unibet becomes the seventh sports betting app in Pensylvania and the fifth online casino in PA. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) approved the operation after testing last week.
A huge plus for bettors: Unibet Sportsbook allows gamblers to register just once, toggle between the casino and sportsbook with one click and, most importantly, to share an electronic wallet.
The Mohegan Sun had launched a retail sportsbook in late September with Unibet and Kindred. The physical sportsbook at the casino has a lounge of 1,130 square feet.
Unibet and parent Kindred are huge in Europe
Kindred is an established player in the European gaming market. It deployed the Unibet brand in the American market earlier this year in New Jersey via Hard Rock Casino in Atlantic City.
Unibet recently became the official casino partner of the Philadelphia Eagles with a sponsorship agreement for its online casino, but not the sportsbook.

However, Apple users must download GeoGuard, so a gambler’s location within PA can first be verified. Then a browser connection can be accessed.
