FanDuel, the leading sports betting operator, is launching a standalone online casino app in Pennsylvania with an expectation to attract gamblers during the Coronavirus pandemic.
The app was previously launched within the company’s local sportsbook platform and later was introduced to the public on Wednesday, for iOs and Android users.
The casino app would allow users to log in and place live wagers on games, just as in traditional casinos, including blackjack roulette and slot machines.
Pennsylvania has become the largest online gaming center at present.
The trend of online casinos surfaced in July 2019 after Governor Tom Wolf signed a bill to expand the business in the state and FanDuel was among the very first operators who went live.
Jesse Chemtob, the general manager and the Vice President of Casino at FanDuel said, “We’ve seen great engagement and interest with our FanDuel Casino product amongst our sportsbook customers to date and we view this product evolution as a natural next step to provide a full-service gaming experience to our Pennsylvania customers.”
To roll this app out, Fan Duel partnered with valley Forge Casino and Boyd Gaming in Pennsylvania.
The report of Play Pennsylvania shows that the gaming operator has taken more than $200 million in wagers in its online table games in each of the last months.
Launched amid a long pause in sports betting activities, Fan Duel is expected to acquire fame among a broad population.
