Golden Nugget Online Gaming was the first to bring live games to the US

DraftKings completed the Golden Nugget Online Gaming acquisition in May 2022 for $1.5 billion. Golden Nugget Online Gaming was the first to bring live dealers and live casino floor to the US online gaming market.

Golden Nugget online casino is now live in four online casino markets:

Moreover, Golden Nugget offers online sports betting operations in New Jersey, Arizona, Michigan and West Virginia.

Golden Nugget has been eyeing Pennsylvania online casino market since 2021

Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) unanimously gave final license approval for Golden Nugget Online Casino in July.

Over a month ago, the PGCB designated Golden Nugget Casino as an out-of-state operator. The operator received the Qualified Gaming Entity (QGE) status in March 2021, alongside certificates for online slots and table games.

Bally Casino is the other QGE license holder in Pennsylvania, launching at the beginning of June.

According to the PGCB, 18 online casino apps in Pennsylvania registered $157.1 million in revenue in July. Even though July was a slow month for the gambling industry, casinos in the state remain strong. Although the figure was down from June 2023’s 164.3 million, July 2023 numbers are still 27% up from the $123.2 million generated a year ago.
