Online casino gambling continues to grow in Pennsylvania, as more sites are launching new services or existing providers are adding new content. The industry is a little over a year old and already has reached new and exciting milestones. This week, it was announced that players now have access to new content thanks to the launch of Red Tiger Gaming. The company was able to add games in the region thanks to support from a NetEnt license.
New Gaming Options in Pennsylvania
NetEnt was approved for licensing in Pennsylvania some time ago and Red Tiger became a part of the brand last year. The supplier has integrated games within the Rush Street Interactive company, which operates two gaming brands in the state. Players can find the new games at BetRivers and PlaySugarHouse.
Red Tiger was able to go live thanks to an existing relationship between the parent company and Rush Street Interactive. Both casinos now offer Red Tiger titles including popular games like Cash Volt and Gonzo’s Quest Megaways. Even more games will launch in the future, providing players with extra content.
With the launch in Pennsylvania, Red Tiger is now set up for continued growth in the US. The plan is to expand within more sites in the Keystone State as well as in more states as gambling is legalized.
NetEnt Vice President Commercial, Americas, Brian Kraft, commented that the company is proud to have reached this milestone with Red Tiger, while delivering the content in an accelerated fashion.
Helping the Land-Based Industry During Uncertain Times
Online gaming sites like PlaySugarHouse and BetRivers are helping gaming companies to bring in revenues as the COVID-19 pandemic remains a problem. With new content from Red Tiger, the brands are sure to see even higher revenues over the next few months.
In Pennsylvania, the land-based casinos have been struggling. They were shut down back in March and reopened a few months later, but with strict regulations in place. Venues have a lowered capacity level and must follow safety and health guidelines, including mask wearing and social distancing.
Unfortunately for casinos, the virus is picking back up again and more cases are being seen every day. Because of this, the Rivers Casino Pittsburgh will shut down on November 20 and not reopen until January. This is a huge blow and will certainly create more of an economic struggle for the venue.
Other casinos may shut down in the future, if case counts continue to increase. For online gaming operators, there is still hope that revenues will come in. As people in the state stay home and practice social distancing, online gaming allows players to access entertainment in a safe environment.
Because of the new orders in the state, we should see online gambling totals increase over the next few months. People are encouraged to stay home, mask up when going out and social distance. It will be interesting to see how much growth is recorded in November and December due to the new gaming launches as well as from player traffic.
