Mohegan Sun PA Joins Online Sports Betting
Mohegan Sun Pocono in Pennsylvania now offers two options for sports wagering. Gamblers can bet in the sportsbook inside the casino or the new online option. Sports betting is offered at 12 retail and seven online locations.
Customers can now bet on sports at Mohegan Sun Pocono without stepping foot in the casino. Mohegan Sun Pocono partnered with Kindred Group to launch online sports betting in Pennsylvania. The sportsbook and casino products can be found on the Mohegan Sun website, and mobile apps can be found at pa.unibet.com.
The online betting option began after Unibet Sportsbook opened inside the casino in Plains Township.
“After a successful launch of our betting lounge, Unibet Sportsbook at Mohegan Sun Pocono, we are thrilled to take the partnership with Mohegan Sun online and bring the Pennsylvanian guests a state-of-the-art online gambling experience, including the best casino games and an impressive sportsbook,” Manuel Stan, Kindred U.S. senior vice president, told the Citizen’s Voice.
Aviram Alroy, vice president of interactive gaming at Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, said the sportsbook lounge is a “highly engaging and joyful experience.”
Mohegan Sun Pocono and Kindred Group’s online sports betting initiation follows Mount Airy Casino Resort’s start in September.
Mount Airy in Monroe County partnered with the Stars Group and FOX Bet for its online sports betting, and the casino also opened a 3,800-square-foot sportsbook in the former Gypsies Lounge space. In November, Mount Airy partnered with PokerStars and FOX Bet to create the first online poker option in the state.
Through the Gaming Expansion Act of 2017, Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board spokesman Doug Harbach said sports wagering is offered at 12 retail locations along with seven online sites, while online casino games are now available at five sites in Pennsylvania. In addition to Mohegan Sun Pocono and Mount Airy, the sites are licensed through Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course, Rivers Casino Philadelphia and Parx Casino.
