Your Pennsylvania Online Sports Betting Account, Banking & Deposit FAQ

Pennsylvania online sports betting has arrived, first in the form of SugarHouse Sportsbook but with many more to follow. But with the exciting launch comes a number of questions. Don’t worry, the staff here at PlayUSA has you covered!

Initially, common inquiries regarding new online sports betting operators center around creating accounts, banking, and depositing. Here are some of those frequently asked questions to get you going.

Additionally, check out more general FAQs on getting started.

How do I make deposits and withdrawals?

You can fund your SugarHouse account using the following methods:

  • In person at the Cashier’s Cage in Philadelphia
  • Credit cards
  • Online bank transfer
  • SugarHouse prepaid card
  • ACH eCheck
  • Cash deposits at 7-Eleven stores

Withdrawals options are:

  • In person at the Cashier’s Cage in Philadelphia
  • SugarHouse prepaid card
  • ACH eCheck
  • Check sent by mail

Can I use my New Jersey SugarHouse account to log into a Pennsylvania sports betting app?

The simple answer is no. Customers will need to register again even if you already have a New Jersey account.

How does SugarHouse know where you are betting from?

All sportsbooks use geolocation to make sure customers are placing bets inside state borders. Once a customer exits the state of Pennsylvania they will no longer be able to place a bet but can still view the odds.

Will the PA SugarHouse Sportsbook app work in NJ?

No, but you can view all posted odds without having to log in.

Do Pennsylvania sportsbook apps have deposit bonuses or free bonuses?

Yes! Everyone that registers an account receives a 100 percent deposit match bonus up to $250 on their first deposit. Just use the promo code: 250MATCH while making a deposit via the cashier.

It’s also worth noting that even if you got a bonus playing on SugarHouse in New Jersey, you can get it again playing in Pennsylvania.

Can I deposit at Rivers for SugarHouse and vice versa?

This is TBD for the moment.

Do I need separate BetRivers and PlaySugarHouse accounts?

Yes. Customers will need a separate account for BetRivers and PlaySugarHouse. BetRivers offers new players a 100% deposit match bonus, up to $250 when using the BetRivers sports bonus code PLAY250.

Are banking options different in Pennsylvania compared to New Jersey?

For the time being, PA will be limited to Visa, Mastercard, ACH, SugarHouse prepaid cards and cash at the casino cage. But the plan is to eventually have all of the same payment options as New Jersey does.

Can you deposit into your PA account outside of PA?

The short answer is no. Cash deposits to Pennsylvania online accounts must be made at the SugarHouse Casino cage in Philadelphia.

Can you deposit into your NJ account from PA?

No. Cash deposit to NJ online accounts must be made in New Jersey.

Can you deposit into your PA account using an Atlantic City partner casino?

No. You must be located within PA in order to make a deposit to your PA account.
