888 launches promotional push in Pennsylvania

The online operator began a cross-promotional advertising campaign in Pennsylvania anticipating the legalisation of online gaming in the state.

US.- 888 launched a cross-promotional advertising campaign in Pennsylvania ahead of the expected legalisation of online gaming and Daily Fantasy Sports in the state.

Last month, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives voted 114-85 in favour of HB 2150, a bill that aims to legalise both online gambling and daily fantasy sports. Although online gambling is still illegal in Pennsylvania, if HB 2150 is approved by the Senate legalisation will be a step closer.

So far, 888 has joined forces with its land-based partner in the state, Mount Airy Casino Resort, to offer bonuses to players that register early.

Under the agreement, consumers that sign up to 888 Casino NJ via the Mount Airy Casino website will receive a US$25 no-deposit bonus, which can be redeemed should HB 2150 be passed by the Pennsylvania Senate.
