BetAmerica is continuing its expansion into new markets with its online casino in Pennsylvania joining its sportsbook there. BetAmerica’s initial focus when it debuted in 2008 was horse racing and it is owned and operated by Churchill Downs Inc.
In coming to the Keystone State, BetAmerica PA partnered with Presque Isle Downs & Casino, which is located in Erie, PA. Let’s take a closer look at this online casino.
|Decent game variety||Lack of promotions|
|Reputable backing||No mobile app|
|Friendly customer service|
BetAmerica PA offers a 25 percent deposit bonus. During the registration process, use the promo code “PLAY500” and you will receive a 25 percent deposit bonus up to $500.
In order to gain access to those bonus funds, however, players must complete a 10x playthrough of the deposited amount and bonus combined. This means, if you deposit $100 and get a bonus $25, you must wager $1250 on the site before you can access the bonus $25.
Broken up into three steps, the registration process at BetAmerica PA is fast and easy to get through.
Like other online casinos, you will need to provide personal information such as your name, email, create a password, address, the last four of your social and consent to BetAmerica’s terms of service, but this isn’t out of the norm for any online casino.
Some users may be uncomfortable giving the last four of their social security number, but casino winnings are taxable. Therefore, this is meant to identify you.
Right now, players can only wager with BetAmerica PA on desktop and laptop. While there is a mobile app for BetAmerica, everything casino-related is strictly for New Jersey. For the desktop casino, however, it is quite easy to navigate.
Painted with red, white and blue, it is difficult to get lost at this online casino. At the top, you will find a search bar and links to the featured games, slots and all games. Below this, the games are divided up in that exact order with the number of games in parentheses next to them.
In each section, there are filters for two things: Provider and Most Popular. Each game has a graphic attached, too. With fewer games than most, everything on the screen is easy to find and there is no lag or annoying buffering, despite ads being on the page, too.
In total, BetAmerica PA offers a total of 53 games, but this number is expected to grow quite soon.
On the site, these games are broken up into three categories:
All of the games are powered by NetEnt, or at least that’s the only known one as when you go to filter by provider, only NetEnt is listed. There is one jackpot slot, which is Divine Fortune. Beyond this, no, there are no live dealer games.
With the various game types, each one will have varying betting limits.
Before we get into percentages, we should define what Return to Player Percentages (RTP) are. Say a casino takes in $100 and the RTP is 90 percent. This means that for every $100 wagered, over time, $90 will be paid out to the customers.
In examining the RTP at BetAmerica PA here is what we found:
BetAmerica PA does not currently offer a VIP Program.
BetAmerica PA has excellent customer support. This includes an expansive FAQ section, live chat support which can be found in the bottom-right-hand corner of each page, email and phone support available from 9am-2am eastern standard time.
At the bottom of the page, you will find the link to the Responsible Gambling section of the page. Kicking off the Responsible Gaming section, BetAmerica PA gives contact information to hotlines and organizations that can assist with problem gambling. Also, you can contact BetAmerica PA, too.
After this contact info, BetAmerica PA details exactly what problem gambling is and the warning signs. At BetAmerica PA you can set limits on yourself if you so choose. These include things such as deposit, session and spending limits. Additionally, you can exclude yourself from the site or close your account.
Without a mobile app, BetAmerica PA will have a limited market. Factor that in with so few games, you have an even smaller market. Granted, what BetAmerica PA does have is great, the lack of a mobile app is a tough pill to swallow.
However, BetAmerica PA, according to a customer service representative, plans to bring this to customers in the near future. There are better options out there, but for brand new online casino players, BetAmerica PA could be a good choice as it is far from overwhelming.
