If I put in 250 can I make a 500 bet or do I have to do 250 and then I have access to the other 250

Couldn’t answer that one. Have to refer you to their customer service chat.

BREAKING NEWS

Maybe not totally breaking, but haven't seen it on WoV yet.

Sugar House is to be rebranded as "Rivers" presumably "Rivers Philadelphia" to avoid confusion. No word on timeframe or if Rivers will now or soon will be "Rivers Pittsburgh."

I'm not a fan, kind of like "Sugar House" and not the biggest fan of making casinos all the same name in different cities. OTOH I will be done caring after I hit "post" so whatever. Just want to let GWAE and all the other PA Peeps know.

They have always been owned but the same people with separate play clubs. I always wished they had the same because I did a tier match in philly to high card and was hoping pgh with match that but they wouldn't

Until today I did not know of the common ownership. Perhaps they unify the PC?

For those interested, Sugar House online had 3 "soft launch" days in PA and one partial day (site opened mid-day?) in May for a handle of around $570,000. Compare that to about $34MM in all books in the state. Not sure how many casinos have books yet.

Call it just over $1MM per day across a counter for all casinos. One online place does half of that on a soft-open. Clearly the other casinos have to get online or really miss out.

Question I have is, does NV allow online sports wagering the same way PA does?

Here is another play. Rivers Casino (Pittsburgh) is set to go live with their online window. Same $250 bonus as at Sugar House, same code, and the web page looks like the same shell of a program. But why care? $250 match!

I cannot see the playthru requirement yet, but I expect it to be the same as SH, being they are the same parent company.

Please note that they are in a "test" today and tomorrow. I do not know if that means internal or GCB. But it does mean you might not be able to log on at odd hours. No big deal, but be aware.

MODS: Same deal as before. This is not spam, I have no affiliate relationship with them, just giving my fellow PA punters heads-up on what amounts to a free $250 bet.

They were testing today something like 2pm to 7pm. Then I think tomorrow 12-5pm. If gaming is satisfied then it goes live on Thursday. I would assume it will be fine since it is same platform as sugarhouse.

Will be interesting to see the handle. SH was about $500K for their test and day at the end of last month. Might put some of the runners out of a job.
