Online casino fans in Pennsylvania have been wondering when the Wind Creek Casino, formerly Sands Bethlehem, would be launching an online gaming site. Well, apparently, the casino decided to quietly launch back in July. They went live via play.windcreekcasino.com via desktop and Android devices. The soft-launch was reportedly completed before the full launch took place and players can now access the site 24/7.
New Online Casino Gaming Option
Wind Creek provides yet another online casino in the state of Pennsylvania. Working with Pala Interactive, Wind Creek already offers a nice selection of games. In the early stages, other brands only offered a handful of slots and even less table games. For Wind Creek, they are offering 77 slot games and even include some exclusive titles.
The site offers Pixie Garden as well as progressive slots Jackpot Shores and Divine Fortune. These games are just a small example of Wind Creek is offering its players. For the table games section, the site provides a plethora of content as well, including roulette, video poker, baccarat and blackjack.
Unique to this online casino is the Dragon’s Lounge. Here, players will find Lucky Vegas Nights, Divine Fortune, Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spina and Hawaiian Getaway, among many other games.
Inner Workings of the Site
For players who join Wind Creek’s online casino, there are several options for deposit. To begin real money play, a credit card, PayPal, e-check or Play+ can be used along with PayNearME and the casino cage at the casino. There are only four ways to withdraw funds; VIP Preferred e-check, Play+, the casino cage and a check by mail.

Players who are already members of the program can link their account to their online one. Players can points from both land-based play and online gaming. Base points can be used to earn casino rewards and online rewards.
Wind Creek Casino joins the online gambling industry of Pennsylvania at a good time. The online casino market has done well, particularly over the last few months when casinos were shut down due to the coronavirus. Some casinos reopened in early June while the Rivers Casino Philadelphia waited until mid-July to open back up.
During the spring and into the summer, the industry saw a huge increase in player traffic. Monthly revenues hit record-breaking numbers and continues to grow. In June, slots were in at over $36 million. Table games came in at $10 million.
Rivers was the top operator for June, earning $15 million in total revenues. The majority of that amount, $13 million, came from slot games. For table games, the top provider was FanDuel, earning just over $3 million in June.
It will be interesting to see just how well Wind Creek will help the online gaming market now that they are live. We should definitely see an increase in September, once the August earning reports start to roll in!
