Through its partnership with renowned Pennsylvanian land-based casino operator Harrah’s Philadelphia, Caesars Entertainment has recently launched an online casino in the Keystone State. The launch which happened on April 23 brings the total number of online casinos in the state to 9, which is just 3 more options shy of matching up to the state’s existing land-based casinos.

As with all new gambling operations in Pennsylvania, the new online gambling platform had to meet the standards of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB). To that effect, it was subjected to two days of mandatory testing that was overseen by the gaming control board. At the end of the testing phase, the gaming regulator found that it was fit for operations thus giving it the green light to begin full operations.

What To Expect

In many ways, the new online gambling platform is very similar to the company’s operation in New Jersey. For now, the most definitive difference is the size of the game catalog. At launch, Caesars Online Casino offered only a dozen slot titles including popular titles such as 88 Fortunes, Starmania, Celestial King, Krono Unleashed and Monopoly Mega Movers among others.

However, as time goes by Pennsylvanians should expect to be treated to even more titles as Caesars Entertainment updates and upgrades its platform’s game collection. Hopefully, online poker is also part of these plans.

To give its customers in the state an incentive to choose its platform over all the online gambling options, Caesars Online Casino has been offering some pretty enticing welcome bonuses. New players will have access to a 100 percent bonus match up to a whopping $300 for their very first deposits on the site. All that you will need to do to get a piece of this bonus is to create a gaming account on the platform then deposit at least $10. You will then be able to enjoy spending your bonus for a whole week after you receive it.

Perfect Timing?

Needless to say, the COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the economy, and just like many other industries, the Keystone State has felt the pinch. In fact, Caesars Entertainment has been one of the biggest casualties of the economic slowdown.

Now, just like many other businesses, the company has been trying to find ways of cashing in on the online space. There has been a recent uptick in online gambling as people now have to stay at home amidst efforts to contain the coronavirus pandemic. Venturing into the online casino space is, therefore, a great move for Caesars Entertainment not because it is trying to profit from the situation but because it happens to be at a time when there is an extremely high demand for great online gaming options.
