BetAmerica PA Sports Review

by Gambling.com™

Owned by Churchill Downs Inc., BetAmerica has brought its online sportsbook to the state of Pennsylvania. As part of the rules and regulations to operate an online sportsbook in the state, there must be a brick-and-mortar partner. For BetAmerica, that partner is Presque Isle Downs and Casino, which is located in Erie.

Rolling of its success in New Jersey, BetAmerica rolls into neighboring Pennsylvania with a head of steam and eyes on future expansion. Let’s see what it brings to the table for the folks in PA.

BetAmerica PA Pros & Cons

ProsCons
Plenty of sports options Very little promotional offerings
Live Chat option in the bottom right of each page
Fast registration process

BetAmerica PA Welcome Bonus

BetAmerica has a two-part welcome offer. First, simply sign up and receive $25 free. The only thing you need to do is use the promo code “FREE25” at registration. The bonus money must be used on betting lines of -250 or better.

Second, after you sign up, within seven days, you will get a 100 percent match up to $100. The free $25 is a definite plus. However, the $100 match is far from the highest match we’ve seen in the industry.

Registration at BetAmerica PA

As mentioned, the registration process is super fast and broken up into three steps. In these three steps, you will provide information such as name, email, address, last four of your social security number, and pertinent personal information.

BetAmerica PA Desktop/Mobile Experience

BetAmerica PA is available on desktop, mobile web browser and for both Android and iOS devices. First off, the desktop and mobile versions of BetAmerica are quite similar to one another and both have the American colors of red, white and blue (which fits the name of the sportsbook perfectly).

Both load and go from page-to-page with ease. There is no buffering or long load times which hinder navigating the website.

The major difference between desktop and mobile is that, on desktop, the sports are on the left side of the screen whereas on mobile the sports are along the top of the page.

Also, on mobile the sports are also on the left side of the page, but only after you hit the collapsible drop-down menu and populates on the left side.

The sports displayed in the center of both the desktop version and the mobile apps and browsers are the same, too, displaying “Today’s Games” and options to select the different sports that have games going on on that respective day.

BetAmerica PA Betting Odds

Overall, in comparing odds and betting lines with BetAmerica to other popular online sportsbooks in the state, honestly, everything was fairly on par minus a few points here and there. This is nothing substantial. Sometimes you will find major discrepancies and that is a red flag, but that is not at all the case with BetAmerica.

BetAmerica PA Betting Features

BetAmerica offers live betting, an odds boost and cash out.

  • Live Betting: This allows users to wager on matches that are actively in progress. The odds change and alter as the game progresses.
  • Super Odds: This is like an odds boost. Basically, BetAmerica takes certain bets each day and artificially increases the odds.
  • Cash Out: This is a feature that allows users to settle a wager before the match is over. However, in doing so, the amount of money you get back will correlate with how your original wager is performing at the time of cash out.

BetAmerica PA Current Promotions

There are no other promotions available with BetAmerica for the sportsbook other than the welcome offer. This definitely needs to be addressed at some point. In a competitive market, promotions could attract new users.

BetAmerica PA Customer Support

BetAmerica not only has an excellent FAQ section, but it also offers phone, email and live chat support.

On each page, there is a link to the live chat in the bottom-right-hand corner. On the contact page, there is a link to email and the phone number, which is available from 9am-2am eastern time.

BetAmerica PA Responsible Gambling Features

At the bottom of the page, there is a link to the Responsible Gaming section. Here, there are numerous sections dedicated to protecting users and minors alike.

There are a list of warning signs to look out for if you’re questioning whether you have a problem. Next, there are steps you can take on the site to protect yourself such as setting limits on yourself for deposits, spending and session times and a self-exclusion period.

Lastly, there are different myths that are listed and BetAmerica provides context to those myths and refutes them or adds credence.

There is also plenty of contact information to different charities and organizations that could also help you, too.

Our Verdict

BetAmerica is a solid online sportsbook. Unfortunately, however, there is not a lot of novelty when it comes to it. It has everything other sportsbooks have.

Interestingly enough, the New Jersey BetAmerica has other promotions, so maybe that is a sign of things to come for the Pennsylvania branch. Once the promotions page is updated and more has been added, that could create more intrigue to BetAmerica PA as a whole.
