Parx Casino is one of the largest casinos in Pennsylvania and has proven to be very successful in comparison to its competitors. Parx is made up of two separate poker rooms and offers players over 130 tables games and 3,500 slot machines to choose from. The land-based casino has partnered with GAN, a company already known to the US market thanks to its collaboration with BetFair, and has proceeded with a soft launch as of July 15th. Parx already has a live sportsbook as of June and was one of the first casinos in Pennsylvania to announce its plans to launch its online casino this summer.
Parx Online Casino is expected to bring a strong partnership teaming up with GAN, a platform which is already successful in the New Jersey market, as well as a number of games including a variety of slots and live dealers. Parx wants to make sure the online casino does not drive people away from the brick and mortar business so players can expect cross-promotional tie ins and a lot of promotions towards the land-based Parx Casino.
Parx is one of the few Pennsylvania casinos to apply and get approved to offer online poker which is a great advantage as the land-based casino currently hosts the largest and most profitable poker room in the State. Parx is expected to be heavily involved in the online poker with either a branded online poker room or introducing a partnership with another industry player as it is believed Mount Airy did with PokerStars.
Parx Online Casino Welcome Deals
Parx is expected to follow in the footsteps of other online casinos and offer a welcome package consisting of either a no-deposit bonus that allows players to test out the online casino for free or a deposit bonus that will be matched to a player's initial deposit up to a certain amount. Even though the tax of 54% on online slots in Pennsylvania is expected to affect online casino welcome packages, Parx is determined to come out strong in the online PA market and will likely be offering bonuses on the higher end, with player-friendly wagering requirements.
Right now Parx online casino is offering players a match up on a deposit up to $500 with the promo code PARX500. In order for players to receive the funds they must meet the playthrough requirements that come with the online casino bonus:
- 20x playthrough for online slot machines.
- 40x playthrough for online roulette.
- 100x playthrough for online blackjack, baccarat, and video poker.
With the soft launch of Parx online casino in the process, players could see the following promotions offered:
- Loyalty Program: This would include VIP bonuses, events, and gifts given to players who reach a certain level of tiers, as well as loyalty points that would be redeemable for promotions, reload bonuses, and free spins.
- Refer a Friend: Players could see the chance to be awarded a bonus simply for referring friends to the online casino site which will be given to the player as soon as the friend completes registration and makes their first deposit.
- Game promotions: Players could see the possibility of getting cash back bonuses on selected games within 24 hours.
The land-based Parx Casino currently has a loyalty program called XClub that is made up of three tiers and based on a six month period of player activity. The theme in New Jersey seems to be online casinos integrating rewards with its land-based program so we can assume Parx online casino PA will do the same.
Parx Online Casino Software
By going off Parx’s social casino product and their partnership with BetFair in New Jersey, we can predict Parx will have a strong online platform for its casino.
Players will be able to access the online casino through their desktop browsers including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Mozilla which will give them access to a range of slot games, video poker, and table games.
Parx online casino will have a mobile app available to players who are within Pennsylvania borders and will only be available through Android devices. Due to Apple policies, online casinos have had a hard time launching on IOS but it is yet to be known if Parx will manage to get its online casino app on iPhone.
The mobile casino app offered in New Jersey under BetFair is easy to use but only features a handful of games in comparison to its desktop version that currently offers over 130 games for players to choose from.
The Parx online casino PA mobile app will allow players to register new accounts, make easy deposits, request withdrawals and claim promotions and bonuses. Any players in Pennsylvania looking to download the mobile app will have to go through the official Parx Casino site to find the link for the download.
In order to offer players the best online gaming experience and include a wide variety of games, Parx has also teamed up with software providers NYX, NetEnt, Konami and Aristocrat.
Parx PA Online Casino Games
Parx Online Casino PA is expected to be full of different games for players to choose from including a wide variety of online slots and table games. The online casino will also give players filter options, making it easier to find the exact game they are looking for on the site.
By going off the Parx social casino, players can expect to see games like blackjack, roulette, video poker, craps and baccarat on the Pennsylvania online casino site with many variations of each. Parx has promised to include interactive live dealer games with its versions of blackjack, roulette, and baccarat, but right now live dealer games and progressive slots are not available.
Both versions of American and European roulette are also live right now.
The Parx social casino currently offers 16 different online video poker games and three versions of Blackjack, so we expect to see the online casino follow the same route as the launch continues.
Due to the partnerships with multiple software providers, we can predict a very large online slots library to come with the Parx online casino, with over 300+ for players to select. Some online slot games players may see with the launch include:
- Space Wars
- Shields of the Wild
- Strolling Staxx
- Astro Cat
- Family Guy
- Lobstermania 2
- Neon Staxx
- Viking Vanguard
- Divine Fortune
- Jackpot Jester 200,000
- Guns ’N’ Roses
- Siberian Storm
- Blood Suckers II
Parx Online Casino PA Payment Methods
If Parx PA wants to compete with other online casinos launching this week, it will need to offer a wide array of payment methods to make it easy for players to deposit and withdraw online. Players can expect to see the following payment methods:
- Visa and MasterCard
- Prepaid card
- Wire Transfer
- Cash at the Parx land-based casino cage
PayPal is also expected to make the list but is not available right now.
Deposit and Withdraw
All of the above methods listed can be used to deposit on the Parx online casino site. The online casino will not be charging players any fees for funding their account and should be reflected into the players account almost immediately after making the deposit. There will be a minimum deposit limit no matter what payment method the player decides to go with on the PA online casino site.
Withdrawals will not be as easy as depositing as players have run into problems when it comes to banks accepting gambling transactions, and will notice differences in the amount of time it takes for funds to go into a players account depending on the online payment method they use.
Parx Online Casino Customer Support
Parx Online Casino PA is expected to have a great customer service support team to assist players 24/7 with any sort of problems. Email, Live Chat, and telephone will all be available around the clock and the site will also feature a FAQ section where players will be able to find the answer to anything related to promotions, their account, and deposit problems.
