Live dealer stadium gaming

SugarHouse offers the relatively new feature in table gaming called Stadium Gaming. Players sit at their own terminal, arrayed around or near a live table game dealer. The dealer can be viewed on the screen or naturally. Prior to each hand, a timer counts down and players decide their wagers. The hand is then dealt, with the results instantly accrued to the player’s terminal – which operates similar to a slot machine, with bill-acceptors and paper cashout tickets. This new gaming feature is currently available for Roulette, Baccarat, and Blackjack.

Online gaming

As of August, 2018, Sugarhouse Casino hasn’t entered Pennsylvania’s nascent online gaming market, but it shouldn’t be long until they do. They have already applied for the state’s $10 million license that allows online slots, table games, and peer-to-peer gaming (geek-speak for online poker). It is expected that they will use their in-house tech company Rush Street Interactive to create and manage their online slots and table game offerings. Who Sugarhouse will partner with to enter the online poker market is unknown at this time.

Pennsylvanian’s eager to gamble online in the meantime should consider the Pennsylvania online lottery. It is fun and easy to play, it is completely legal, and you can win real money. What’s more, new players receive $5 free to play when they sign up.

  • Hugo’s Frog Bar & Chop House – A classic steakhouse with contemporary design, Hugo’s is part of the regionally successful Gibson’s Restaurant Group.
