Borgata Casino App Brings the AC Party to PA with Exclusive Slots & Live Dealer Games

Save your NJ turnpike toll money, the Borgata online casino is now live in Pennsylvania with heaps of exclusive game offerings.

It’s a little bit of Atlantic City. Without the drive. Or the tolls. Or the crowds. So what’s not to love? 

Before legalized gambling arrived in Pennsylvania, many of its citizens made the drive to New Jersey to try their luck there. They’d step into places like Caesars and Sands and the famed Borgata. They’d spin some slots and lay some chips down, hoping to return home a little richer. 

And now, the circle has been completed, with some of those same New Jersey casinos traveling into Pennsylvania themselves. The latest one arrived yesterday with the launch of the Borgata online casino.

Borgata online casino arrives with big games and promotions

Borgata gamesThe Atlantic City staple is opening its virtual doors in Pennsylvania with over 150 casino games and a 100% deposit match up to $1,000, along with an extra $20 just for good measure.

The Borgata launched in partnership with Rivers Philadelphia

Borgata’s entry into PA follows that of its sister brand, BetMGM. And while BetMGM online casino launched under Penn National’s Hollywood Casino Grantville license, BetMGM Sportsbook is partnered with Hollywood Casino Morgantown. In PA, iGaming license holders can have multiple online casino skins, but only one sports betting skin is allowed per property.

And so, the Borgata found a path to Pennsylvania too. BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt said in a news release.

“There are few casino brands as well-respected as Borgata, evident by the success we’ve seen with the Borgata Casino app in New Jersey. Pennsylvania marks an important milestone for us as we introduce the Borgata Casino brand to the first state outside of New Jersey. We’re confident that players in Pennsylvania will enjoy the digital betting experience of Atlantic City’s premier casino.”

What games can you play at Borgata casino PA?

At launch, the Borgata online casino features more than 150 slots and table games. Those include exclusive games like Premium Blackjack Pro and MGM Grand Millions, a progressive jackpot slot that begins with a jackpot of $300,000 and is linked to other MGM slots as well.

Borgata also has access to more than 50 exclusive games created by Win Studios plus titles from leading game providers like as IGT, SG Digital, Spin Games, Konami, WMS, Big Time Gaming and NetEnt.

  • Champagne Super Clover
  • Book of Myths

  • Four card poker
  • Casino war
  • Baccarat

  • Blackjack Live
  • Infinite Blackjack

Borgata’s shift toward online gambling keeps gaining momentum

Perhaps fueled in part by the pandemic, online gambling continues its impressive upward trend. PA online casinos raked in more than $80.4 million in iGaming revenue in the month of January. That figure was 11% higher than the previous record (set in December) and an astronomical 476% higher than the total from January 2020.

Borgata officials have watched this trend closely and have made significant efforts to maximize their online presence. As noted in the launch article on Play Pennsylvania, New Jersey’s online casinos have reported year-over-year growth of 168% from 2020 totals.

Even with some healthy competition, conditions seem ripe for Borgata’s launch

So now, with life not yet back to normal, it seems like a perfect time for the Borgata brand to expand westward and establish some roots among Pennsylvania’s online casinos.

Users can download the Borgata app on Apple iOS or Android devices. After that, players can take advantage of a $20 no deposit bonus and the aforementioned 100% bonus match, up to $1,000.

A complete rundown of the casino, including deposit options and additional promotions, is available here.

A little typing and a few taps, and you’ll be right inside the Borgata’s online doors.

It’s a far cry from the older days, when you needed the car keys, some money for turnpike tolls and a few hours to get there.

The excitement is much easier now. Thanks to the Borgata, a little bit of Atlantic City is now always present in Pennsylvania.

And the doors are open, just waiting for the moment when you’re ready to try your luck.

PA Online Casinos Lead Gaming Recovery with Record $80 Million January

Online slots, table games and poker in PA crossed $80 million in revenue in January 2021, helping PA gaming post a 2.7% YoY revenue increase.

Despite ongoing disruptions from virus-restricted business conditions, overall gaming revenue in Pennsylvania is up 2.7% over last year, according to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

Revenue during January from all forms of gaming, along with fantasy contests, was more than $311 million. Revenue regulated by the PGCB includes slot machines, table games, internet gaming, sports wagering, fantasy contests, and VGTs.

Total tax revenue generated collectively through all forms of gaming and fantasy contests was more than $127 million during the month.

Restrictions from virus boosted online gaming

And as a likely by-product of COVID-19 concerns and restrictions, January was a record month for PA online casino games. The PGCB reported total iGaming revenue of more than $80.4 million.

That’s the highest amount ever, beating the previous high of $71.6 million set in December 2020 by an impressive 11%.

Online slots revenue was just above $51 million, a huge jump from a year ago when it was $7.2 million. The year-over-year percentage increase comes out to a staggering 609%.

Online table games revenue was nearly $26.7 million, up from just over $4.6 million a year ago. The percentage increase YoY was almost 479%.

Tax revenue generated from internet gaming play during January was more than $32.2 million.

Online poker generated more than $2.7 million with just one operator, a 26.4% boost from a year ago. That was on par with December numbers.

Virus disrupts gaming revenue nationwide in 2020

The virus clearly wreaked havoc on the land-based gaming across the country, according to figures this week from the American Gaming Association.

Commercial gaming revenue totaled $30.0 billion in 2020, down more than 31% YoY, according to the AGA’s Commercial Gaming Revenue Tracker.

The year marked the first market contraction for the gaming industry since 2014 and the lowest gaming revenue total since 2003.

Retail casino numbers hammered

In PA, January’s gross revenue from casino-based slot machines was $140.7 million, a 26.1% decrease compared to the $190.3 million generated in January 2020.

Tellingly, the number of slot machines in operation this past January was just 18,703 compared to 24,126 a year back.

Table games revenue in casinos was likewise off for January with just more than $50.8 million, a decrease of 29.9% from the previous January, when revenue was $72.5 million.

Sports handle up, revenue down slightly

January’s sports betting handle was nearly $615.3 million or 12.2% above December’s record total of $548.6 million. But the taxable revenue for January declined slightly from $34 million to just above $33.9 million.

In January, PA crossed the $100 million mark in lifetime sports betting tax revenue.

VGT and daily fantasy back on track

Video Gaming Terminals, or VGTs,  produced gross revenue of more than $2.2 million and daily fantasy sports (DFS) kicked in revenue of more than $2.9 million. The two segments seem to have recovered from pandemic headwinds.

Online poker was up slightly at $2.7 million compared to $2.4 million in November. There is still just one operator, PokerStars PA, via Mount Airy Resort.

  • Penn: Total revenue $27.6 million (slots: $16.2 million; table games: $11.4 million).

NetEnt, Evolution Online Casino Powerhouse Bearing Fruit for Stock Holders

Evolution Gaming, a market leader in PA and beyond, reported operating revenues were up 68% YoY in Q4 2020, thanks in part to NetEnt.

Casino online game maker NetEnt is now fully integrated with iGaming giant Evolution Gaming, and the merger is paying dividends.

With last year’s late Q2 move to acquire NetEnt for $2.3 billion completed Dec. 1, Evolution reported Wednesday operating revenues were up 68% YoY in Q4 2020 to EUR 177.7 million ($215.5 million). For full year 2020, operating revenue was up 53% YoY to EUR 561.1 million ($680.4 million).

A total of EUR 17.8 million ($21.6 million) of the revenue came from NetEnt. Evolution chief executive Martin Carlesund commented in the company’s year-end report:

“Through the acquisition of NetEnt, we add a second vertical to our unrivaled live casino offer and two strong and fantastic new brands to our product portfolio. This makes us well placed for our long-term ambition of taking a leading global position in online casino.”

Evolution’s stock ($EVO), which trades on Nasdaq Stockholm, is on the rise since the report. It went from around $110 Tuesday to closing over $122 (SEK 1,023) on Thursday. Just six months ago, the stock price was $72.50.

NetEnt a market leader in PA

As an early-in online casino company, NetEnt remains a market leader in PA as well as nationally.

The international company made its US debut in New Jersey in 2015, where it houses its US headquarters. Then NetEnt got initial approval from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) in March 2019 to operate and went live in July 2019 upon iGaming launch in PA.

Now, most of the PA online casinos carry their titles, of which they have more than 200. Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst and Divine Fortune are some of the most popular.

In addition to their home base in Sweden and their US office, the company has operations in Malta, Gibraltar, Poland, Ukraine, India, and the UK.

NetEnt, Evolution an expanding powerhouse

NetEnt continues to expand its footprint, most recently debuting games at a number of online casinos on Day 1 of Michigan’s iGaming launch. Jeff Millar, Evolution Commercial Director, North America commented:

“America is an absolute priority market for Evolution Group, which is reflected by the scale of NetEnt’s first-day presence in Michigan.”

With NetEnt on board, Evolution is in a unique position to dominate in the online gambling market. A big part of that stems from Evolution’s live dealer games, popular in New Jersey and now PA. Evolution announced it plans to open a third live casino studio in Michigan later this year.

Though the majority of revenue comes from Europe and Asia, the growth potential in the US is immense. According to Millar, the company has much planned for expansion this year:

“We are poised to add more operators in all US markets during 2021 and have a roadmap of high-profile game launches. And, as we’ve once again shown, we’re ready for new markets being switched on and partnering casinos to offer a standout product to their players the minute they go live.

NetEnt continues growth in PA

NetEnt continues to grow market share in the red-hot Pennsylvania online casino market. The company formed some key partnerships in the latter half of 2020. Those included launching games on the Cordish Companies‘ online casino PlayLive! as well as the Wind Creek online casino.

Brian Uran, vice president of marketing for PlayLive!, explained the desire to partner with NetEnt:

“As one of the first suppliers to go-live in Pennsylvania, NetEnt’s portfolio is must-have for any operator looking to compete in the online sector. Partnering with them was a priority for the launch of PlayLive!”

The company also expanded its deal with DraftKings to include PA and neighboring West Virginia, as well as new markets to come.

Brian Kraft, NetEnt vice president commercial, Americas said of the partnership:

DraftKings’ size and market presence make this launch one of the most significant to date. We’re proud to expand our relationship with such a well-known operator and look forward to continuing the success that we’ve achieved together so far. We are thrilled to have such a renowned operator on board as we enter new jurisdictions.

Fly Eagles, Fly: First Pro Sport Slot Game in US Now Available at Unibet PA

First slot in the US to feature pro sports team

It’s also a first in the US. As of yet, there are no other professional sports themed slots at legal online casinos.

The game has 27 lines, five reels, and three rows.

Hitting three or more free spin symbols activates free spins with multipliers. Three wheel bonus symbols on an active pay line activates the wheel bonus game.

The wild symbol subs for any symbol except for free spins and the wheel bonus signal.

New Unibet slot follows Eagles blackjack

The new game follows closely behind the debut of “Eagles Blackjack.”

Until Jan. 28 at 11:59 p.m., the two games offer a chance to win up to $5,000 in a leaderboard points race called Eagles End Zone Rush. Details are spelled out online under “promos and offers.”

Kindred vice president Jonathan Aiwazian said:

“With the tremendous response we have seen to the release of `Eagles Blackjack’, we are thrilled to be able to deliver a second sports-themed game to the Pennsylvania market, this time within the slot category.

“The partnership with the Philadelphia Eagles continues to be a source of innovation and delight to fans and customers of both organizations”

The Eagles see the games as a way to connect with fans.

Eagles senior vice president for revenue and strategy, Catherine Carlson, said fans quickly embraced the blackjack game and they expect the same with the new slot game.

Said Carlson:

“We are always seeking new and creative ways to connect with Eagles fans throughout the year. We are excited to roll out ‘Eagles Online Slot’ to fans and look forward to growing our innovative partnership offerings with Unibet.”

Divine Fortune Mega Jackpot Pays Out Record $533K To PA Woman

The legend of the Divine Fortune progressive slot continues, as it hits for the 14th time in PA, this time for a record $533,239 at PlaySugarHouse.

A massive jackpot from an online casino slot was hit Tuesday night for a Divine Fortune record win on PlaySugarHouse.com in Pennsylvania. The score was worth $533,239.

An Audubon, PA, woman who is 34 years old and wishes to remain anonymous claimed the winning jackpot.

The woman began playing at PlaySugarHouse.com just last month, according to a press release. She was playing at home on her smartphone when she hit the big one.

Divine Fortune synonymous with SugarHouse

The Divine Fortune progressive slot game is only available in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. This is the biggest jackpot to date on both sides of the Delaware River.

And while several online casino sites feature the game, the majority of the hits have come at the SugarHouse site.

Mattias Stetz, COO of Rush Street Interactive, which operates PlaySugarHouse.com., said:

“It is exciting to see history being made in a positive way during these difficult and uncertain times. These huge jackpots are life-changing for our players, especially when good news is needed now more than ever.”

Divine Fortune has a winning history

Previously, the largest Divine Fortune jackpot ever to be hit in the US was $376,893 on a $1 spin on PlaySugarHouse.com in PA.

The game has quite a history.

One man hit twice, once for $151,000 with a $100 bet and once for $235,000 on a $20 bet.

And the game has paid mega jackpots 14 times in PA since it launched in July 2019.

What makes this progressive slot so special?

Divine Fortune is unlike most progressive jackpot slot games, which traditionally have low returns to players (RTP) — meaning they are tightand high volatility, with higher but less frequent payouts.

In contrast, Divine has a fairly high RTP of 96.8%. And the slot’s volatility rating is “medium,” meaning more consistent winners.

And based on the rate at which the jackpot consistently climbs, the prized slot is only growing in popularity among online casino players in PA.

The jackpot at PlaySugarHouse is now at $148,000 — and climbing.

New Online Slots In PA: Scientific Games Debuts Popular Titles At PlaySugarHouse And BetRivers

Looking for some new online slots in PA? Check out our reviews of three new titles from Scientific Games, available now at PlaySugarHouse and BetRivers.

Rush Street Interactive, the operator of BetRivers.com and PlaySugarHouse.com, today announced a partnership with Scientific Games.

The American corporation is an industry leader in gambling products and lottery services across the world. As a testament, Scientific Games offered secure instant lottery tickets back in 1974.

Thanks to the new partnership, Scientific Games’ most popular online slots are now available at two PA online casinos.

Top 3 most popular Scientific Games online slots

1. 88 Fortunes slot game review

Richard Schwartz, the president of Rush Street Interactive, states:

“88 Fortunes is already the most popular slot out of more than 550 slot games on PlaySugarHouse.com in New Jersey, and we expect Pennsylvania players will love playing it online just as much.”

In fact, 88 Fortunes is already a land-based casino player favorite at Rivers Casinos located in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

So, without further ado, here’s a mini-review of 88 Fortunes. The name itself, 88 Fortunes, gives away the theme: Chinese, with plenty of good luck or fortune symbols.

You will find yourself immersed in an environment of red and gold colors. The 88 Fortunes game caters to players who love Chinese culture and music, but mainly to those who love good fortune.

Some key features of 88 Fortunes:

  • Minimum to maximum bets: $0.88-$88 per spin. As the name 88 Fortunes implies, eight is an auspicious and lucky number in Chinese culture.
  • 243 paylines or ways to win
  • Four jackpots: mini, minor, major and grand
  • Free spins that can trigger more free spins, meaning you theoretically can free spin indefinitely.
  • Three Fu Bat symbols (Chinese symbol with red ribbon) triggers the pick-and-click game to win a jackpot.

Lastly, the return to player (RTP) is high at 96%. Scientific Games rates the volatility as being medium. Overall, 88 Fortunes draws you in with the graphics, music, theme and high RTP.

2. Spartacus™ online slot review

This online slot game features Spartacus, the famed Roman gladiator.  Notably, the game’s claim to fame is the Colossal Reels, which is just a fancy way of saying there are two sets of reels on the game screen.

What’s more, the sound effects feature a baying crowd and lots of fighting.

Markedly, look for these fun elements of Spartacus:

  • Main reel: 5×4 grid
  • Colossal reel: 5×12 grid
  • 100 paylines
  • Wild Spartacus: Gladiator of Rome logo: If this symbol covers the whole main reel, it transfers to the Colossal reel for more chances to win.
  • Hit three Scatter Coliseum icons for eight free spins, four scatter icons for 12 free spins and five scatters for 20 free spins.

Spartacus has an RTP of 95.94%. As a whole, Spartacus is visually appealing and creates an immersive environment.

However, it would be nice to have some type of bonus feature or game for players. On the other hand, it is understandable why this is a popular slot game.

3. Starmania® online slot review 

Starlight, star bright, first star I see tonight.

Starmania features an outer-space theme with multicolored stars.

Some gameplay features of Starmania:

  • Five reels and 10 paylines 
  • A wild symbol substitutes every symbol except for the bonus. It can be stacked on reels but will only appear on reels two, three and four.
  • Land three bonus symbols to trigger free spins.
  • Ten free spins are awarded for every time three bonus symbols hit. Free spins can be retriggered.
  • Gamble with the “Hearts and Clubs” button for either 2x or 4x the winnings. Guess the color of the card to double your winnings. If you guess the suit, get 4x the winnings.

As a whole, Starmania felt like a more classic online slot, and although it is visually appealing, the sound effects grew a bit overwhelming. However, the high RTP of 97.867% caused us to overlook any gripes we had with this slot game.

Cleopatra online slot game

Obviously, Cleopatra is quite a popular choice for online slot games. This Egyptian-themed online slot by IGT invites the player for a trip to ancient Egypt down the river Nile.

The game features 20 maximum paylines, but there is a bet configuration menu that allows the player to decrease the lines and line bet. What’s more, there’s even an auto-spin feature available at some online casinos.

Divine Fortune Mega Jackpot Strikes Twice On Valentine’s Day

The progressive online slot Divine Fortune made Valentine’s Day much sweeter for two PA residents playing at PlaySugarHouse and Hollywoodcasino.com on Friday.

Valentine’s Day sure turned a lot sweeter for two lucky Pennsylvania residents!

Two Divine Fortune Mega Jackpots hit on Friday, one at PlaySugarHouse, a product of Rush Street Interactive, and the other at HollywoodCasino, the online gaming platform for Penn National Gaming, Inc.

Formerly, we reported on Divine Fortune’s success not just here in Pennsylvania but in New Jersey as well. This crowd-pleasing progressive online slot game just keeps on paying out.

Divine Fortune on PlaySugarHouse

The most recent hit marks an astounding 12 Mega Jackpots paid out on PlaySugarHouse.com since its launch last summer.

A Glenside, PA, resident hit the jackpot while playing from the comfort of his own home. Marc M. was sitting in his living room, playing with his puppy. He was on his last spin when he struck the jackpot with a $2 bet.

All of a sudden, Marc M. was $148,172 richer! According to the 49-year-old, “I was relaxing after a long day of work and was ready to head to bed when it happened. It was surreal.”

Mattias Stetz, COO of Rush Street Interactive, the site’s operator, emphasizes that the size of the bet placed does not matter. He says:

“These jackpots are changing the lives of our players, even when small bets are placed. It shows that no matter the bet, anyone can be a winner!”

More Divine Fortune luck follows on HollywoodCasino.com

Jeanne R. had just registered on HollywoodCasino.com and was playing for a little less than three hours. Amazingly, she hit the Divine Fortune Mega Jackpot for $76,598.13.

Jeanne shared her excitement about her jackpot win:

“I can’t believe I won! I am still in shock. Thank you, HollywoodCasino.com! I decided to try your site because of the jackpot opportunity, and boy, did it pay off!”

Rich Criado, general manager of iCasino for Penn National, spoke more about the amazing jackpot hit.

“For someone to win a jackpot within a few hours of signing up online is just tremendous. This is exactly the kind of excitement we hope to create for all of our online guests. We’re so happy for her!”

About Divine Fortune

Divine Fortune is a progressive slot game that NetEnt developed. It is the first online slot game in the Keystone State with a progressive jackpot.

The game features five reels, three rows and 20 lines along with some fun features like:

  • Wild substitutions
  • Falling wilds respins
  • A wild-on-wild feature
  • Free spins

Most importantly, it offers three different jackpots, including the progressive Mega Jackpot. This means that the more players who bet, the higher the jackpot grows until it finally hits.

The wild success and popularity of Divine Fortune makes us wonder why more online casino operators do not offer similar progressive slots.
