The Pennsylvania online gambling market is boomtown central.
Last summer, three online casinos launched. As of now, the Keystone State boasts a hefty eight online casinos.
The total monthly revenues for online gambling are burgeoning for the various PA operators since the official launch of PA online casinos in July 2019. Online casino revenue in January increased by an astonishing 31.4% compared to December.
When it comes to revenue, online slots outshined all other online gambling offerings, such as online table games and online poker.
SugarHouse (Rivers Casino Philadelphia) leads the way
SugarHouse is the leader in slots revenue. Not only did its slots revenue account for 34% of the total from seven operators reporting revenue, but also, this operator offers a mind-blowing 65 slot games.
Keep in mind that slot offerings are constantly being changed or updated for fresher, newer and more enticing options. You can see the latest updates here at our game tracker, which is updated weekly.
Best slots at SugarHouse
The most well known? Why, it is Divine Fortune, with its progressive Mega Jackpot that gets everyone excited every time it hits — and the Mega Jackpot hits a lot.
The most recent Mega Jackpot was won by a man and his puppy for $148,172.

Butterfly Staxx 2
This exciting online slot is a sequel to the popular original Butterfly Staxx by NetEnt. It is a recent addition to SugarHouse’s online slot offerings. Beautiful butterfly imagery and soothing music make this game stand out from the rest.
Although this slot’s RTP stands at around 93.6%, the volatility is low. That means you don’t see huge jackpots like Divine Fortune’s, but you can expect more frequent and smaller wins.
Player beware, though: If you are looking for big payouts, this is not the game for you. However, it is very entertaining, with unique features, pretty graphics and peaceful music.
Turn Your Fortune
NetEnt is heating things up again with another slot game. This online slot is inspired by French Art Nouveau and has a different vibe than Butterfly Staxx 2.
Flashy gold icons set on a dark background will grab your attention. You may find yourself holding your breath in hopes of triggering the scatter feature. I know I did.
Once the scatter feature triggers, it’s all about climbing up the Ladder. The meter fills by collecting the triggered symbol. Even more exciting, if a Key symbol lands during the Fortune respins or free spins, the Fortune Wins move up levels.
Most importantly, once you hit a respin or free spin feature, you’re guaranteed a win.
Lastly, the RTP is high for this online slot game at 96.2%. Although the volatility is medium to high, Turn Your Fortune caught my attention and afforded top entertainment even in the demo mode.
Why play online slots?
Although there is not a vast difference from the slot offerings at a brick-and-mortar casino, playing at an online casino such as SugarHouse has its advantages. For example:
- Time: You can log in to SugarHouse in a few seconds rather than driving to, parking at and walking into a casino. Also, if you choose to switch slot games, it takes a few seconds, compared to cashing out and then walking around to select a different machine in a casino.
- Travel expenses: There are no expenses related to travel.
- Instant payouts. Need we say more? No validation or hand pay is needed.
- Privacy: You can choose to play from your home or anywhere on your mobile device as long as you are within PA.
