We’re right in the middle of March Madness action and that means it’s time for the 4th annual Battle of the Books Championship. The past three years the tournament consisted of NJ sportsbooks, but this year we’re giving PA sportsbooks the chance to shine in our 2022 Battle of the Books.

What is the Battle of the Books?

Battle of the Books is a March-Madness style tournament in which all the current PA sports betting apps face off to see who the online community (that’s you) chooses as the 2022 “People’s Champion” of Pennsylvania sports betting apps.

  • This is a single-elimination tournament and all the voting will take place using Polls on the PlayPA Twitter account.
  • The best part is, we’re giving away over $1,000 in FREE BETS from top PA sportsbooks including, PointsBet, FanDuel, FOX Bet and BetMGM.

To get a better idea of how we crown the winner, check out the promo video from 2021.
