In case you missed it, the Barstool Sportsbook will be offline for at least 72 hours for new and improved upgrades

The company emailed users on Friday night, with the mobile app taking its short hiatus on Sunday, July 9.

Barstool Sportsbook plans mobile app upgrades

Customers logging into the app will be greeted with a message that reads: “We are currently upgrading the Barstool Sportsbook to bring you an improved app experience with more markets and wagering options.”

Friday’s email said, “Next week we will be launching the new Barstool Sportsbook, which is loaded with additional features to upgrade your betting experience.”

The updated features for Barstool Sportsbook include:

  • Faster load times for deposits and withdrawals
  • More player props
  • More Barstool Sportsbook exclusives
  • Seamless navigation search for any betting market
  • Enhanced promotions
  • More integration with theScore media app

According to Barstool, new upgrades will allow users to build their bet slips better and follow betting activity more thoroughly. Upgrades will also provide unique promotions and help users get live match updates from theScore media app. 

Barstool will be back online soon

As mentioned, Barstool anticipates the app will only be offline for up to 72 hours. In addition, the company said user balances will be 100% secured throughout the upgrade process. 

Users will not have to redownload the app or update or change their account information. For those who have bet’s in the process, Barstool said pending wagers will automatically carry over once the new app goes live. 

Barstool was among the first sportsbooks to go live in its home state of Massachusetts. Although it was separate from the initial launch in January, MA online sports betting launched on March 10 with six online operators. 

In March, online operators generated over $563 million in handle, with DraftKings accounting for $264.3 million of that total. Unfortunately for Barstool and parent company Penn Entertainment, it saw less than 6% of betting action for the month.
