On Tuesday, November 12, renowned sportsbook operator Unibet officially joined a host of other reputable sports betting operators in the Keystone State. The award-winning Kindred Group-owned sports betting operation has been eyeing the very lucrative Pennsylvanian sports betting market. Its arrival will now give the state’s bettors one more option to choose from. This is definitely great for the state’s market since it implies more polished offerings as well as more gaming revenue for the state coffers.

While the launch was a success in the end, a few hiccups cropped up thus causing a few delays. Initially, the operator planned to soft launch its new product at noon on Tuesday. Unfortunately, due to a technical glitch, the delayed for nearly 90 minutes. Another technical error later made it impossible for the bettors to deposit funds using credit cards.

Luckily, the technical team handled all the errors promptly and the operations proceeded smoothly. Since it was a soft-launch, the gaming operator will not be taking any heat. According to Unibet’s head of U.S. marketing, Arnas Janickas, the Tuesday soft-launch allowed them to discover and fix the errors. A relatively small number of users participated in the soft-launch and they understood that it was a test. As such, only a few of them were exposed to the aforementioned technical glitches.

With all the technical issues having been fixed, Unibet managed to convince the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) that it was finally ready to launch its full operations. The gaming regulator has approved it to launch its online sportsbook and online casino.

What to Expect

Aside from Pennsylvania, Unibet has also been running an online sportsbook and a casino site in New Jersey for a while now. In addition to its vast experience in the online gambling sector outside the United States, Unibet already has what it takes to navigate in the country’s online gambling space. In Pennsylvania, it has partnered with Mohegan Sun Pocono which has been operating a retail sportsbook since September.

All these factors can give players some ideas of what they should expect from the casino site and online sportsbook. The company is also already offering some pretty compelling incentives to potential customers. These include two $10 free bets of any kind, a $250 risk-free bet after depositing funds, a deposit match of up to $500, and a “Free Bet Bonanza”. These are definitely going to turn some heads.

To further solidify its position as a dominant force in the gaming market, the operator also plans to ink partnership deals with various sports teams. For now, the two names that have been floated around are the New Jersey Devils and the Philadelphia Eagles.
