While Mount Airy does not pack a wallop when it comes to revenue, it is a very active player in the Pennsylvania gambling expansion process. For example, Mount Airy was one of the early bidders to obtain one of the state’s new mini-casino licenses.
Mount Airy was also one of the first casinos in Pennsylvania to partner with an online casino company. In 2015, Mount Airy Casino announced it was partnering with 888, one of the largest online gambling companies in the world.
As part of the deal, Mount Airy promoted the casino to its customers on property, despite its central Pennsylvania location. Additionally, the two companies agreed that 888 would provide the online casino and online poker platform should online gambling ever open up in PA.
Now that online gambling is legal in Pennsylvania, the Mount Airy real-money casino should feature the 888 platform upon launch later in 2018.
Mount Airy Casino online casino platform
With no online gambling licenses officially doled out yet, it is just an informed assumption that Mount Airy plans to have an online presence. Do keep in mind though that only around half of Pennsylvania casinos had official partners to start 2018. Given the casino is ahead of the curve, it seems reasonable enough to assume the 888-powered casino is on the horizon.
In the meantime, Mount Airy currently has a social, play-money online casino site powered by GreenTube which launched in 2017.
Browser and mobile-based play
Like most online casino sites, 888Casino in New Jersey offers browser-based play. It is highly likely Pennsylvania online casinos will go the same route.
With browser-based play, players need only sign up for an account, then they can play on any computer they want. Of course, there are some restrictions. These computers must be physically located in the state. Pennsylvania, like New Jersey, will utilize geolocation technology and practice thorough identity verification at sign-up in order to ensure players are 21 and over.
The 888Casino in NJ features over 50 slot titles from a wide range of slot providers. It also includes the standard table games.
888 Casino also offers a mobile app, but the game selection is not nearly as impressive as the online casino site. The mobile casino is available for both iOS and Android. However, while the app is easy to find on iTunes, Android users will not find it in the Play Store.
Should you want the Android version of the real-money gaming app, you have to download it directly from the casino website.
Games at Mount Airy online casino
Mount Airy online video poker
Some online casinos offer dozens of versions of video poker. Mount Airy will likely not be one of those online casinos though. Currently, the 888 platform only supports one form of video poker. It is, thankfully, the most common form, Jacks or Better.
Blackjack at Mount Airy online casino
Blackjack, like video poker, is a bare-bones endeavor on the 888 platform. Judging from New Jersey, MountAiry could offer just the classic version of the game like 888 does in the Garden State.
Many other sites offer a variety of Blackjack variants. With each different version, certain factors change, including:
- Decks in a shoe
- If a dealer hits or stands on a soft 17
- When a player can double down
- When a player can buy insurance
Mount Airy online casino slots
As mentioned earlier, what the 888 platform lacks in table game variety, it makes up for in slot selection. With that in mind, Mount Airy’s online casino will have access to over 50 different slot titles. Some of the more popular offerings include:
- Diamond Delight!
- Elvis the King
- Steampunk Nation
- Wheel of Fortune
- DaVinci Diamonds
Other games at Mount Airy online casino
There only other table game that is a favorite to crop up at a Mount Airy online casino is Roulette. Frankly, 888 seems resigned to a limited table game selection and focuses its attention on its slot catalog. It is possible Mount Airy pushes for more table game options though. After all, the tax rate on table games will be so much lower than slots in Pennsylvania, so the financial benefit of table games is much higher.
Mount Airy player loyalty program
The brick and mortar Mount Airy Casino uses a player loyalty system called SmartPlay. The system is unique in that it allows tremendous flexibility in how players use to spend their rewards points.
There are four levels, each of which comes with its own special perks and discounts on property:
Now 888Casino also offers its own player loyalty program, where points earned can be redeemed for cash in your online casino account. However, the industry practice is to link the online casino to the land-based casino’s existing rewards program in some way, shape, or form.
Banking options at Mount Airy online casino
A Mount Airy online gambling site should be ready to accept:
- Prepaid Cards
- Electronic checks
