Along with Hollywood Casino launching their online gaming site in Pennsylvania for testing, Parx Casino has also began offering services. Parx Casino is integrated with the brands online sportsbook, so it is a bit different from competitors as players can use their sportsbook log-in to access the casino site. Players who already had funds in the sportsbook are automatically ready to enjoy casino gaming. With the Parx launch, players were given more access to table games, when compared to the offering of Hollywood Casino.
Table Gaming Options
When Hollywood Casino launched their online gaming site, it was strangely lacking in the table games department. The site only offer baccarat and no other games. At Parx Casino, players have access to a few more table gaming options.
The online casino has roulette, in both the American and European versions. They also have blackjack, but only one version. Both Hollywood and Parx do not offer live dealer games.
The lack of table games may be a negative for some players. Slots are pretty similar to Hollywood, but both sites just seem to be lacking in the games department. It seems almost like everything was rushed and just enough games were added to get the sites operational.
At Parx Casino, players do have access to more options for deposit. Hollywood Casino offered only a handful while Parx provides access to depositing via their casino cage, bank wire, ACH, Maestro debit, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Play+ prepaid card, check and PayNearMe.
At Parx Casino, players will find the site has a fancier appearance than Hollywood Casino. At Hollywood, the site is very basic with no flashy graphics or animations. Parx Casino is more streamlined and appears more well done visually than Hollywood’s.
First-time gamblers to the online world will most likely find Parx’s offering much more appealing visually than Hollywood. The visual difference plus the additional table games may cause Parx to be more popular in the beginning than Hollywood.
Parx Casino is also offering a generous first time player bonus that players are sure to find intriguing. Newbies to the site will be able to deposit up to $500 and earn a bonus cash match. This helps players to add more money to their online gaming account.
However, if you are new to the online gaming world, be advised that promotions have requirements. With this offer, players have to wager their online casino bonus 20x before a cashout can be acquired. This means a certain amount of money must be played before any winnings will be paid out. The more you deposit, the higher the amount you will need to play through.
The type of game you choose to play the bonus cash also matters. Always check the fine print to fully understand and offer and clear it in the right way to be able to enjoy any winnings.
By the end of the week, Parx as well as Hollywood should be officially in business online. Both sites have to complete two days of testing and be approved by gaming regulators before full service operation can begin.
