Caesars Interactive announced that it had rebranded its online casino in Pennsylvania as Tropicana Casino PA.
The gaming company took to Twitter on Thursday to announce the switch from Caesars Casino PA. Caesars said in effect that the new app and online casino experience following the rebrand to Tropicana “offers customers enhanced functionality with a catalog of industry-leading casino games” as well as integration with the Caesars Rewards program.
In an informational post on the new casino’s website, Caesars said the rebrand was completed on Tuesday. “Apart from the look and feel of the site, nothing else has changed,” Caesars said in the post. “All of the great features and functionality you’ve become accustomed are all still the same.”
Caesars added that players would not be required to reset their password or re-verify their identity. Active bonuses will automatically transfer to new accounts on Tropicana, as will any funds previously held in Caesars Casino accounts. A player’s tier status on Caesars Rewards will also be transferred.
It is the second time that Caesars has rebranded one of its online casinos as Tropicana. Six weeks ago, the company completed a similar rebrand in neighboring New Jersey.
Tropicana Casino PA will be tethered to the land-based casino license of Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack, which is also owned by Caesars.

Hundreds of Titles Available
On Friday, Tropicana Casino PA had a portfolio of 275 online casino games available to players. The website also had 280 slots titles available.
A stable of 16 online table games were available on Tropicana, including variants of baccarat, blackjack, poker, and roulette. There were also 27 live dealer games available — the online casino was offering live versions of baccarat, blackjack, craps, infinite blackjack, lightning roulette, three-card poker, roulette, and ultimate Texas Hold’em.
Video poker was also available in seven formats — Game King, Five Play Draw Poker, Ten Play Draw Poker, Triple Play Draw Poker, Ultimate Poker Five Play, Ultimate Poker Ten Play, and Ultimate Poker Triple Play.
Caesars Was Rising Before Rebrand
The rebrand comes at a curious time for Caesars — its online casino was coming off its second-best month for revenue in March ($4.3 million), according to revenue figures from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB). That followed its record high of $4.5 million in February. Before February, the operator had never cracked $4 million in revenue.
In fact, Caesars has only been ahead of two of its closest rivals — Betway and PlayLive! Casino, which are on the Live! Casino license, and FOX Bet and PokerStars Casino PA, partnered with Mount Airy Casino Resort — since December 2022. It trailed both sets of operators, plus Parx Casino PA, as recently as May 2022, when it grossed just $2.1 million.
Caesars came oh-so-close to clipping Parx for fourth place overall in the online casino vertical in February — it trailed by just $59,231, according to data from the PGCB. Moving forward, Caesars will try to overtake Parx for just the second time (it bested Parx just once, in April 2022) as Tropicana.
Last month, the PGCB approved an application by Bally to become the state’s only Qualified Gaming Entity (QGE), which are exempt from partnering with a land-based casino.
