Pennsylvania sports betting is expanding its online sportsbook market. As of June 24, the Parx Sportsbook app is now officially the second mobile app available to download in Pennsylvania.
Parx Casino opened its retail sportsbook in January and launched its mobile sports betting app the week of June 24. It’s among the first few online options available to residents of the Keystone State. We suggest trying one of these top sportsbooks.
The majority of online sportsbooks are available through a browser on either a Mac or a PC. But note the Parx mobile app is only available for download for Android users.
Parx Sportsbook welcome bonus offer
Parx is offering two enticing promotions on its sportsbook app:
- Sign up and get a no-deposit bonus of $10 in your account
- Up to $250 risk-free bet. This is applicable as a first-time deposit bonus. Up to $250, the amount of your first bet is risk-free. The bet must be placed on a single wager. The book will refund your account the amount wagered if the initial bet is a loss.

Parx Sportsbook app
Android users are able to download and use the Parx Sportsbook mobile app from the Parx website wherever they are within the state. Otherwise, the only option is on a desktop or laptop Mac or PC. The app is currently not available on iOS, but it’s in the works to happen in the future.
To use the app, you don’t need to be a resident of PA; however, you do need to be within the state to place a bet. The app uses geolocation technology to determine your location when using it.
The online sportsbook is easy to use and arranged quite well. It emphasizes live games as well as the top sporting events happening that day.
Other lines will be organized by sports. These are listed on the left-hand column by the most popular choices. You will find all of the different markets listed below on the sportsbook.
There are also tabs that break down bettings options by the live games playing and other games that are “starting soon.” Here, you’re able to view all of the updated odds for live, in-game lines and the others that are about to begin, so you know to act quickly.
Another useful feature is the search bar. This allows you to enter which sport, league or team you’re looking to bet instead of having to browse for it.
Register for a Parx online sportsbook account
Creating a new account at Parx is extremely easy and only takes a few minutes.
Here is some of the information you have to provide:
- Date of birth
- Phone number
- Last four digits of Social Security number
After supplying the necessary info, you’ll be able to create a username and password that you’ll use to log into the sportsbook each time.
If you’re looking for additional security for your account, you can enable “strong authentication.” With this turned on, you’ll have to enter a pin code that’s sent to your phone or email each time you log on.
You must be at least 21 years old to be eligible to register for an account.
Deposits at Parx Sportsbook
Depositing money into a new account comes with several convenient options.
Parx offers a prepaid card, Parx Play+, which operates similarly to a credit card.
ACH electronic checks are another quick-and-easy method that should be on offer. Additionally, bank wire transfers are welcome.
Furthermore, Pennsylvania is home to hundreds of PayNearMe locations where players can deposit money into a Parx account.
Personal checks sent by mail or cash deposited directly at the Parx Casino are also an option.
Cash at the Parx cage is always a quick solution.
Withdrawals at Parx Sportsbook
There are four easy ways to withdraw: the Parx Play+ prepaid card, electronic checks, mailed checks, and cash at the Parx cage.
Bet types on Parx Sportsbook PA
Once a player’s new account is flush with money, it’s time to place a few bets.
Parx offers its customers all traditional straight-up bets that involve point spreads, money lines and selecting winners.
Additional options include over/under bets (wagers on the total points combined in a single game), parlays (multiple games rolled into a single bet), teasers (bets that move the point spread to a more favorable number), and proposition bets (wagers on individual events that take place inside an event).
Though not confirmed, players should expect Parx to take futures bets, which are wagers on the winners of sporting events that have yet to occur, like the Stanley Cup Playoffs and the 2021 World Series.
Live betting on Parx PA Sportsbook
Live betting is one of the most popular ways to gamble on legal sportsbooks. Parx offers a wide variety of live, in-game betting for nearly every sport and game.
This style of betting is a lot of fun because it changes the way you typically go about placing a bet. Through live betting, you’re able to watch a portion of the game you might be interested in and see how the outcome might be affected by the early action.
Another great feature of Parx Sportsbook is the number of different odds given for each live game. Beyond the usual point spread and moneyline, Parx provides plenty of other betting options, too.
These include player props, game props, alternate lines and alternate totals. There are more than enough selections to choose from that every bettor will be able to find something they like.
It will be exciting to see if Parx has an early buyout (aka cash out) option like many other mobile sportsbooks. This feature allows you to end a wager early to either guarantee some winnings or to cut your losses short.
Parx Sportsbook rewards program
The current casino rewards program, called Xclub, features three tiers: Players, Premium and Elite. You can link your online Parx Sportsbook account to Xclub.
Players climb tiers by accruing points, which players earn with the amount of money they wager in six months. Once a player enters a tier, he or she can reap its benefits for an additional six months.
Those benefits include a $10 free play upon registration and escalating rewards, like dedicated cashier windows, complimentary food and drink, and the possibility to win additional free plays.
Customer support at Parx Sportsbook in Pennsylvania
The majority of online sportsbooks have tremendous customer support teams in place to help you whenever you have sportsbook-related questions. Many are available 24/7 to answer any question you might have.
For now, Parx has live chat support in the desktop version of the site. There’s also a handy FAQ section. If neither of those methods is working for you, the last option is to email [email protected]
History of Parx Casino
The land-based Parx Casino Sportsbook opened on Jan. 10. It’s located in Bensalem, PA, about 15 miles from Philadelphia.
Currently, the retail sportsbook is in a temporary location, but a $10 million construction project is underway to build the new Parx Sportsbook.
The book is open for gambling seven days a week. It closes at 11 p.m. every day except on Saturdays when it’s open until midnight.
Greenwood Gaming is the owner and operator of the Parx Casino. It partnered with the Kambi Group in November 2018 to help Parx offer retail and online sports betting.
