Disclaimer: Golden Nugget Online Sportsbook is not yet live in PA. This review is speculative based on what we expect, and will be updated as soon as it launches.
Golden Nugget Sportsbook will soon be available to sports fans in Pennsylvania. The sportsbook received a fantastic welcome from residents in New Jersey when it arrived in 2019, and has gone on to launch in Michigan.
Now, players in PA will have access to the same sportsbook, promotions and betting features. Golden Nugget is also offering bettors a solid welcome offer to celebrate its launch in the Keystone State.
Read on to find out how you can get your hands on a free bet up to $250 from the sportsbook. We’ll also go into detail about everything Golden Nugget Sportsbook PA has to offer its users.

Golden Nugget has kept its PA welcome offer very simple, but there’s still a small amount of fine print you should be aware of. First, this offer is only open to new Golden Nugget players within the state of Pennsylvania. You also need to be 21 or older.
Make a deposit at the site, and place your first bet. This must be a straight wager. If your bet wins or loses you will be able to continue as normal, but you will receive a free bet for the same amount at Golden Nugget for up to $250. The amount will be awarded in the form of a free bet to use within 72 hours.
Golden Nugget always offers a good number of promotions to its existing sportsbook players. Click the “Promos and rewards” button at the top of any page to view the full list. We’ve included some of our favorites below, but make sure to check the site for the complete offering.
Yes, Golden Nugget holds a QGE (qualified gaming entity) license, meaning it was able to apply for a casino license in PA after operators based in the state. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board approved the online sportsbook in PA in January 2019, and Golden Nugget is waiting on final approval to officially launch in the state. Following its online casino launch, it’s very likely that Golden Nugget will follow up by applying for an online sports betting license.
Golden Nugget has made it very easy for players in PA to sign up for an account. To get started, click on our sportsbook link to reach the website. From there, click the red sign-up button on the top right of the site. To continue and claim your Golden Nugget welcome bonus, follow the instructions below.
Golden Nugget has created a sportsbook app that works across both iOS and Android devices, allowing you to place and track bets from anywhere in PA without needing a desktop computer.
The app is fast and provides a smooth and responsive experience for users. Simply make sure you are connected to mobile data or Wi-Fi, then launch the app to place wagers. You’ll be able to place all the same bets as the desktop site via the app, as well as claim bonus codes, deposit cash and access customer support.
Navigate the app using the one simple menu, which allows you to choose your sport, or head over to the banking or promotions pages. When you choose a sport, the app will display all available leagues and odds. Choose your odds to add them to your pop-up bet slip, where you can then add wagers.
There are plenty of things to shout about when it comes to the Golden Nugget app. Here are just a few of our favorite features:
While we love this sportsbook, there’s always room for improvement. Here’s a couple of changes we think Golden Nugget could make:
Golden Nugget offers a range of great betting options, including point spreads, moneylines, parlays and props. You’ll be able to place pregame bets, live bets while games are in progress, and futures bets on more distant occurrences.
Get started by browsing for all available sports on the menu on the left. Click on an event to view all games happening today, as well as available odds. Click the arrow next to each listing to open it in more detail, including more odds and different betting options. Alternatively, click the “Live betting” tab to view all games currently taking place. When you select your odds here, you’ll see live stats on your bet.
You’ll find your betting slip on the right side of the site, where it’s quick and easy to place your wager and track it.
Golden Nugget Sportsbook covers pretty much every sport you’d want to place a bet on, including football, hockey and basketball. Scroll down the list to find options like tennis, golf and more.
As for leagues, Golden Nugget doesn’t disappoint. Look for extensive coverage of the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB. The site also covers international leagues and tournaments such as the English Premier League and the Australian Open. You can also look out for the UFC, WNBA and college football and basketball.
We all love keeping up with games from around the country, but when our local teams are involved, things get serious. At Golden Nugget Sportsbook, you’ll find great coverage of all the local pro and Division I college teams in Pennsylvania.
You can bet on the Philadelphia Phillies and Pittsburgh Pirates in Major League Baseball, or support the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA. You’ll also find all Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers games in the NFL, as well as full coverage of the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins in the NHL.
If you’d prefer to place long-term bets over taking a stab at live betting, Golden Nugget also has you covered with futures on both professional and college sports teams. You could place a futures bet on the Philadelphia Eagles to win the Super Bowl. Or you could back Joel Embiid to win the MVP award for the season, or on the 76ers to win their conference or division.
Whatever Pennsylvania team you want to support this year, there will likely be a Golden Nugget future to match it. Simply choose a sport and scroll down to find all futures options.
