Following Kindred’s announcement the company would be leaving the Pennsylvania market and shutting down its Unibet brand in the state, its partner Mohegan was left with a dilemma of seeking a new casino partner, launching its own casino brand, or leaving the market for the time being.

The company chose to create its own online casino brand, which is now finally live, as Mohegan Pennsylvania launched on April 25, becoming the 22nd licensed online casino platform in the Keystone State.

The Mohegan Pennsylvania online casino app will provide an omni-channel experience to the players, looking to bridge the gap between live and online play and create a more seamless experience for users transitioning between the two.

A New Player in the Pennsylvania iGaming Market

Back in November last year, Kindred announced that its Unibet Casino brand will be leaving the market following unsatisfactory results. Soon after, Mohegan announced it would be developing its own casino app and launching it in due course.

In January this year, Mohegan presented a full plan to launch the app to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB), which was originally planned for March, but ended up taking an extra month.

Now, the app is finally ready and available to players on desktop and mobile devices, with a wide range of payment options and an array of games making it another great option for players in Pennsylvania.

While players in many other states across America are limited to playing as sweepstakes casinos, Pennsylvanians have the option of picking between almost two dozen regulated casino sites, with Mohegan Pennsylvania being the latest in the line.

Speaking on the launch of Mohegan Pennsylvania, president of Mohegan Digital Rich Roberts said: “This is an exciting moment for Mohegan Digital as we expand our very own online gaming brand to Pennsylvania, in close coordination with Mohegan Pennsylvania.”

“Our growth with the app in Connecticut and New Jersey continues to surpass expectations, as does our PlayFallsView app in Ontario, CA. To now have our fourth launch in the great state of Pennsylvania marks another great opportunity for Mohegan Digital.”

An Omnichannel Approach to Gaming

The launch of a new online casino brand directly owned and operated by Mohegan will allow the company to create a comprehensive omnichannel experience and unite its live and online player bases.

Starting this spring, players across all platforms and venues will be able to collect points towards the popular Momentum Program, with points earned through any Mohegan product counting towards the same balance.

This will allow players to earn special perks, invites to special tournaments and promotions, and level up through the Momentum scheme playing at any chosen venue at any time.

Mohegan Digital VP of marketing Guy Greene commented: “We’re dedicated to offering an unmatched online gaming platform in the fast-growing iGaming industry. Creating a fun, immersive and user-friendly experience, combined with reliability and great guest service are features that Mohegan Digital have become synonymous with, and we’re thrilled to bring it all to Pennsylvania.”

With its launch in Pennsylvania, Mohegan will now have dedicated products in four North American territories, with New Jersey, Connecticut, and Ontario already being live markets for the quickly expanding operator.

It will be interesting to see Mohegan Pennsylvania perform in comparison to the Unibet Casino app which failed to satisfy the very high standards set by the top people at Kindred, leading to its ultimate shutdown.
