No Real Money Casinos In PA Yet, But Mount Airy Has A New Social One

Mount Airy Casino is still waiting on the legislature to allow real-money online casinos. In the meantime, the Pennsylvania casino officially launched its social gaming offering this month.

Mount Airy partnered with software provider Greentube Pro

The new Mount Airy social casino is powered by Greentube Pro. The business-to-business casino software provider announced the partnership in March. One of Greentube Pro’s subsidiary, BlueBat Games, handled the actual construction of the social casino.

Greentube Pro also partners with Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut and bet365 in Europe.

Executive Vice President and General Manager for Mount Airy Casino Resort John Culetso spoke about the partnership when it was announced earlier this year:

“The partnership with Mount Airy Casino Resort and Greentube will enable players anywhere in the United States to enjoy the gaming experience we offer at Mount Airy. This platform keeps us ahead of the gaming curve and, through Greentube, we will be able to engage players though multiple digital channels from any location around the country.”

More about the Mount Airy social casino

The new social casino is available for desktop. It is mobile-friendly as well.

The site features video poker, Roulette, Blackjack, Keno, and a variety of slots. Players begin with access to two slot games. However, they unlock several additional games based on how many coins they earn on the site.

Mount Airy’s online casino also offers leaderboards as well as gambling tournaments. The site is also offering weekly drawings for prizes, including free smart phones.

Mount Airy ready for real money with 888 partnership

Like many other Pennsylvania casinos, Mount Airy already has a relationship in place with a real-money online casino provider. Mount Airy currently offers an online casino in New Jersey via its partnership with 888.

Mount Airy is very close to the New Jersey state line, so like SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia, it offers a real money NJ product. In fact, most casinos in Pennsylvania are prepped to offer online casinos should Pennsylvania pass its gambling expansion bill.

The two most notable exceptions also are the two biggest casinos in the state, Parx and Sands Bethlehem. With smaller casinos like Mount Airy for once better-positioned to capitalize on the industry, it is no surprise the current kings of the Keystone State are the only vocal opponents of iGaming in the industry.

The lack of consensus on the large gambling expansion bill resulted in the bill failing to pass during the regular legislative session. The bill is still alive, but it will be a matter of weeks to months before it gets through.

The good news is the online casinos are not the point of contention in the bill. Instead, it is video gambling terminals (VGTs) causing problems. Lawmakers in the state are still confident the bill will pass with online casinos sometime this year.
