Customers can now bet on sports at Mohegan Sun Pocono without stepping foot in the Plains Twp. 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 casino’s website, and mobile apps can be found at pa.unibet.com.
The online betting option was launched after Unibet Sportsbook opened inside Mohegan Sun Pocono.
“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 online casino games and an impressive online sportsbook,” Manuel Stan, Kindred U.S. senior vice president, said in an emailed statement Monday.
Aviram Alroy, vice president of interactive gaming at Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, said the sportsbook lounge at Mohegan Sun Pocono is a “highly engaging and joyful experience” and he is thrilled that Kindred Group is able to extend the experience online through their partnership.
Mohegan Sun Pocono and Kindred Group’s online sports betting launch follows Mount Airy Casino Resort’s launch in September.
Mount Airy in Monroe County partnered with the Stars Group and FOX Bet to launch 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 launch 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.
