SugarHouse Sportsbook app
The online SugarHouse Sportsbook offering includes robust mobile access. Android players can go to the Android app store and download the free SugarHouse Sportsbook app for Pennsylvania. iPhone and Apple users will have to use a browser to access the site on iOS, as there is currently no app in the Apple app store.
The sportsbook app looks and acts exactly like the web version, making it simple to switch back and forth between the two.
All activities, from registration to deposits and withdrawals, to browsing and placing wagers, is possible both the website and mobile app.
SugarHouse Online Sportsbook Pennsylvania web access
SugarHouse is already an established web brand in New Jersey, with PlaySugarHouse.com.
It’s a website version of its brick-and-mortar sportsbook that allows players access to everything that is offered in person but from the comfort of their homes. The web-based access to SugarHouse is also available in Pennsylvania.
Registering an account with SugarHouse PA
Registering for a new SugarHouse account is fast and easy. All new customers need to provide is their name, email address, physical address, date of birth, phone number and the last four digits of their Social Security number.
Finally, they will be asked to select a unique username and password.
Then the sportsbook will verify the new player’s identity and age and activate the account. In a departure from what has become the norm for other online sportsbooks, SugarHouse doesn’t require photo identification. Identity confirmation will be done using a player’s name, date of birth and Social Security number.
Anyone who is 21 years or older will be able to register for an account, regardless of his or her location.
However, to place bets, a player will need to be physically located within the state borders of Pennsylvania as verified by his or her IP address or the location services on his or her mobile device. It isn’t necessary to be a Pennsylvania resident.
As per the rules laid out by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, persons who are athletes, managers, coaches, referees or other officials who influence the outcomes of sporting events are allowed to open an account. However, it is illegal for them to gamble on events which involve them or their affiliations.
SugarHouse loyalty program
SugarHouse offers its online players free membership into its iRush rewards program and its 11 tiers of benefits.
Points accrue with each dollar that is wagered, and the first tier is attainable with as few as 40 points. Even at the lowest level, members should be eligible to redeem points for bonus wagers at the iRush bonus store. At the highest level, players can claim free dinners, price multipliers, birthday gifts, and custom deposit assistance.
The iRush rewards program tiers work on a 60-day rolling period, with all points staying in a player’s account for 30 days. Bonus store points are not subject to the 60-day rolling period and instead remain in a user’s account for 365 days.
Other promotions at SugarHouse
Along with bonus awards available to players who follow SugarHouse on any of its social media platforms, SugarHouse runs its Big Game Getaway Sweepstakes.
Every 50 iRush Rewards points a player earns on sports bets equals one entry into the sweepstakes, with the grand prize featuring overnight accommodations, dinner and two VIP tickets to the game of his or her choice. Cash prizes ranging from $50 to $2,000.
SugarHouse Sportsbook offers SugarHouse Jackpot Parlay. This parlay gives players a chance to win more than $100,000 through a series of bets over a selected timeframe.
Deposits and withdrawals at SugarHouse
At the heart of playability for any online sportsbook, is the ease of making deposits and withdrawals. For deposits, SugarHouse features several options. However, they are limited compared to neighboring New Jersey, as several deposit options have yet to hit Pennsylvania.
Credit and debit card
The SugarHouse app accepts payments made via Visa and Mastercard.
ACH / online banking
Another option is using electronic checks and ACH deposits. Similar to bank transfers, these options require customers to send e-checks to fund their SugarHouse accounts.
At various stores in Pennsylvania is PayNearMe, which is for deposits only. Customers receive barcodes from their SugarHouse accounts and have them scanned with store cashiers before customers make deposits.
Cash at the casino cage
Customers can use the casino cage at SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia to use cash to fund their online account.
In New Jersey, SugarHouse offers a branded prepaid credit card, and the same holds for its Pennsylvania app. Players can use this card for deposits and withdrawals.
Deposit options to expect in the future
Other deposit options coming soon to SugarHouse’s Pennsylvania sportsbook include PayPal and Neteller. These e-wallets allow customers to avoid directly linking their bank accounts to their SugarHouse accounts. Instead, they can fund PayPal or Neteller to deposit with SugarHouse.
Lastly, an online banking option allows for banks to approve “bills” (or deposits) via customers’ accounts.
Available wagers at SugarHouse sportsbook PA
Win/loss bets, future plays, propositions, parlays, over/under plays and partial game bets are all on the standard betting menu.
But what is not-so-standard is SugarHouse’s innovative new “cash out” feature. Before the game is over, players have the option of ending their bet early and cashing out partial winnings. Expect those winnings to be based on the odds at the time of cashing out.
In-play wagering is an option, both through the website and on the mobile app. This is a highly popular means of wagering. It allows players to play several games within a single game, through multiple halftime totals and second-chance multipliers. Players can also pay their way out of bets and make new bets, all within the same game.
Rush Street says that because of its advanced technology, it will be able to keep those in-play wagers open for extended periods than most; thus, resulting in players getting more betting options.
SugarHouse takes bets on NFL and college football, NBA and college basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, golf, tennis, boxing, MMA, motorsports and almost any other sport played around the world.
