When it comes to online gambling, SugarHouse has a leg up most in the state would kill for. Namely, the casino already operates a real-money online casino. PlaySugarHouse is a New Jersey online gambling site operating under Golden Nugget’s NJ online casino license.
Philadelphia’s proximity to the New Jersey state line made the decision for SugarHouse to put the effort into developing an online product. Of course, there is also a free-to-play version for PA customers or anyone else outside of the Garden State looking to check it out.
PlaySugarHouse Casino online casino platform
The PlaySugarHouse platform features in-house software from Rush Street Interactive. Assuming the same platform launches in PA, a look at the NJ review of PlaySugarHouse will give you an in-depth look at what to expect. We will be glossing over the major points here too though.
Browser and mobile-based play
Like most online casino sites, PlaySugarHouse is a browser-based online casino. This means all players need to do to get going at the virtual tables or slots is sign up for an account.
Now, to be clear, there will be additional steps to this process beyond picking a username and password. Namely, there will be identity verification to ensure players are over 21. There is also geolocation technology to ensure the player is inside Pennsylvania state lines.
Nonetheless, browser-based play means players can log into any computer with an internet connection in the state and easily be online playing in a matter of minutes.
The site features over 300 slot titles and a range of popular table games. There are also mobile apps for SugarHouse available on both iOS and Android.
Games at Play SugarHouse online casino
PlaySugarHouse online video poker
SugarHouse has an existing partnership with IGT, a top gaming software provider. That means, when it comes to video poker, a PA version of PlaySugarHouse would likely offer the incredibly popular GameKing suite of games. This includes titles like:
- Jacks or Better
- Bonus Poker
- Double Bonus Poker
- Double Double Bonus Poker
- Triple Play Draw Poker
- Five Play Draw Poker
Blackjack at PlaySugarHouse online casino
The video poker options may be plentiful. but when it comes to Blackjack, the pickings are slimmer. There are two variants. One is the straightforward version of the game. The other is called Blackjack Pro Atlantic City.
When it comes to rules and side bets, the NJ version offers many, however, it is not safe to assume those will apply in PA. Slots, for example, are notoriously tighter in PA than NJ, so bets that are advantageous for the players may be harder to come across.
PlaySugarHouse online casino slots
As mentioned previously, there are over 300 slot titles under the PlaySugarHouse banner from a long list of software providers. Take a look at what companies are represented on PlaySugarHouse:
- High 5 Games
Other games at PlaySugarHouse online casino
There are a few other table games to choose from at PlaySugarHouse. Those are:

PlaySugarHouse online casino rewards program
Currently, there is a VIP program that is unique to PlaySugarHouse in NJ. This is atypical for US legalized and regulated sites. Usually, the brick and mortar properties sync a rewards program.
However, with its unique position as a New Jersey site and a Pennsylvania casino, syncing up may have been too much effort for too little return. Once Pennsylvania launches though, at the very least, it should stand to reason that SugarHouse will at least have synced online rewards with its sister property Rivers Casino’s online site.

- Prepaid Cards
