Golden Nugget online casino has long been a juggernaut in the New Jersey online casino marketplace, but it’s finally expanding to neighboring Pennsylvania. With the launch, Golden Nugget is now live in Michigan and West Virginia along with Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

“We’re thrilled to announce that Golden Nugget Online Gaming’s mobile casino is now available to customers in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” said Matt Kalish, President, DraftKings North America. “The app is powered by our leading technology, which dynamically brings hundreds of popular casino games and exclusive content to our customers’ fingertips. Pennsylvanians will be able to enjoy superior customer service, rewarding promotions, and a smooth interface while playing on Golden Nugget Online Gaming.”

The Pennsylvania product launches with more than 500 slot titles in addition to a suite of standard online table games. The casino app also offers proprietary games such as Rocket, a crash game.

The new Golden Nugget will enter a marketplace with 18 other brands, including one from its own family, DraftKings Casino, which is intergrated into the DraftKings Sportsbook app.

Golden Nugget is the second operator to launch in Pennsylvania as a qualified gaming entity (QGE), which means the license is not tethered to a land-based casino. Bally’s launched its Bally Bet Casino product as the state’s first QGE in July.

DraftKings Sportsbook is under the license of Hollywood Meadows, which is a Penn Entertainment property. During the initial online gambling licensing process, The Meadows was one of two casino properties in the state, along with Lady Luck Nemacolin, that did not pursue a license to offer online casino and online poker.
