All residents of Philadelphia or near by cities, we would like you to know that you no longer need to make the long drive to Atlantic City to place sports bets.

Starting this Saturday (12/15) you will be able to place sports bets at Sugar House Casino! Woohoo!!

A lot of money may be coming to the City of Brotherly Love very soon. After legalizing sports betting in the state of New Jersey, the state is now extremely close to hitting the 1 billion dollar mark after just a few months of opening.

Back in May the U.S Supreme Court made the big move to allow states to legalize sports betting. Now the time has finally come for Philadelphia.

Better late than never, right?

At the moment test bets are being made to make sure all things run smooth when your time comes this Saturday.
