Online casino sites in the US continue to offer new games to keep players interested. The most common addition is slot games, as they are the most popular sector within the industry. In the state of Pennsylvania, Rush Street Gaming just announced they have added slot titles from Scientific Games, providing players in the state with more quality gaming content. The new games are part of an extension involving an existing deal between the brand and the developer.
Expanded Deal Equals More Games
With the expanded deal, players now have access to more games via BetRivers and PlaySugarHouse. They are the first to launch additional titles from Scientific Games in the state. The games added include 88 Fortunes, which is one of the most popular games on the market today, especially at the PlaySugarHouse site in New Jersey.
Additional titles players will find at the site includes Mad Mad Monkey and Starmania.
For online casino sites to succeed, they must have solid partnerships with gaming companies. For Rush Street and Scientific Games, they have found a solid partnership with each other. They have been able to work together for quite some time, providing essential services to players located in Pennsylvania.
Richard Schwartz, the President of Rush Street Interactive, stated that the team is excited to be working with Scientific Games to bring top quality and well-known games to their players. The President pointed out that the 88 Fortunes title is super popular in New Jersey, out of the over 550 slot games that PlaySugarHouse offers in the state.
Scientific Games is just as proud to be working with Rush Street as they move forward to grow the online casino category in the US market.
Pennsylvania was able to legalize online casino gambling in late 2017 but it took some time before the state was ready to offer services. The entire year of 2018 was spent on licensing and developing regulations. It was not until summer of 2019 that the industry launched, though gaming options were limited.
Over the past few months, online casino operators have been adding more content so players have access to a longer list of slots and table games. Rush Street Gaming was one of the first brands to launch in Pennsylvania and they have done quite well in this new market. They were actually one of the leaders when it came to generating revenues from the new industry in the beginning.
Over the next few months, the state as well as others who offer online casino gaming are expecting an uptick in player traffic due to the coronavirus outbreak. More than 50% of the nation is under some form of stay at home order and players are indoors in their homes more often than not.
In Pennsylvania as well as New Jersey, the number of online casino visitors should jump significantly over the next month. The states have been impacted by the virus and as players choose to stay home, they will look to iGaming as a form of entertainment.
