Welcome to Pennsylvania Advantage. Our goal is to provide players with the best casino information in the state. 

This site covers a variety of topics. These include a listing of all 15 Pennsylvania casinos, our Pennsylvania Blackjack Survey, Pennsylvania Table Game Survey, online casino sites, live poker rooms, online poker rooms and sportsbooks. We also have a dining guide so you can know which restaurants are open at each Pennsylvania casino.

Pennsylvania Casino Guide

Our Pennsylvania Casino Guide covers all casinos in the state. Each casino has a page that shows all the games that we found during our visit, and our recommendations. There is a list of the live table games and predicted minimum bets. There are also sections covering sportsbooks, poker rooms, racing, dining, and if the casino has a hotel. Many in Pennsylvania do not.

Every casino is represented. Those properties are Harrah’s Philadelphia, Hollywood Casino Penn National, Hollywood Casino York, Lady Luck Nemacolin, Live! Casino Philadelphia, Live! Casino Pittsburgh, Meadows Casino, Mohegan Sun Pocono, Mount Airy Resort, Parx Casino, Presque Isle Downs, Rivers Philadelphia, Rivers Pittsburgh, Valley Forge Resort and Wind Creek. 

Pennsylvania Blackjack Survey

The Pennsylvania Blackjack Survey covers all the blackjack games that we found at the state’s casinos. While Pennsylvania has loose regulated blackjack rules, a few casinos go a step further to give players re-split aces, while others only allow players to re-split any pair one time. Our Pennsylvania Blackjack Survey also covers variants offered in the state’s casinos.

Pennsylvania Table Game Survey

The Pennsylvania Table Game Survey covers all 22 non-blackjack live table games that we found in the state’s casinos. Baccarat, craps, roulette, pai gow poker, pai gow tiles, Four Card Poker, Three Card Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold’em are among the games listed. It also has the expected minimum bets and individual game details, like craps odds and the type of pai gow poker dealt.

Pennsylvania poker rooms

There are seven open Pennsylvania poker rooms. The most common game is no limit Texas hold’em. Pot limit Omaha and fixed limit hold’em are other games offered by Pennsylvania poker rooms. All deal cash games. Most have poker tournaments. 

Pennsylvania sportsbooks

Most Pennsylvania casinos have sportsbooks. These range from small lounge areas to ones that offer a full-service sportsbook experience. Our Pennsylvania sportsbook section covers these and related mobile sports betting apps.

Pennsylvania online poker

There are four licensed Pennsylvania poker sites across three networks. Borgata Poker, BetMGM Poker, PokerStars and WSOP.com may all be played in the state. Each offers Texas hold’em and Omaha cash games and tournaments.  

Pennsylvania online casinos

There are more than 10 licensed Pennsylvania online casino sites. Each offers a wide menu of slots, video poker and table games. The minimum bets are lower than at live versions of the same game. Some games have higher returns to players than live casinos in the state. There are first deposit bonuses and VIP programs at all Pennsylvania online casinos. 

Pennsylvania casino dining guide

One issue we found while traveling to all the Pennsylvania casinos is that there was not a good way to easily see which restaurants were open. Our Pennsylvania Casino Dining Guide has that covered. It includes every restaurant at all Pennsylvania casinos. The listings have the type of food served and hours open.
