PointsBet has released its online casino product in Pennsylvania, marking the fourth US state in which the operator now offers iGaming.

The launch follows PointsBet’s entry into Pennsylvania’s sports betting market, which took place in February, after the firm received sports wagering and interactive gaming operator licences from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board in January.

The Keystone state joins New Jersey, Michigan and West Virginia as the fourth US market in which PointsBet offers its online casino product.

However, in accordance with local regulatory requirements, the product is currently available in a soft launch environment.

“Just a few short months after launching PointsBet in the state, we’re excited to now be able to introduce the Pennsylvania market to our innovative online casino product,” said Aaron O’Sullivan, PointsBet’s VP of online casino revenue.

“At PointsBet, we pride ourselves with our ability to not only deliver our users with the best-in-class sports betting product but the best-in-class casino content as well – creating a holistic PointsBet user experience.”

PointsBet’s sports betting product is currently available in 10 US states in addition to Ontario, the first Canadian province to launch a licensed online iGaming market.

Financial results published in January showed the operator generated betting handle of A$598.9m in the eight US states it was live in, amounting to some 45.2% of PointsBet’s global total.
