SugarHouse Sportsbook is now live in New Jersey and Pennsylvania with legal, real-money sports betting. The platform is powered by Kambi Group, which also operates the platform of Garden State competitors 888sport and DraftKings Sportsbook.
Unlike some other gambling operators in New Jersey, SugarHouse has directly implemented its sportsbook into online casino offerings via www.playsugarhouse.com. Consequently, customers who already utilize the company’s online casino have the benefit of a shared wallet they can utilize across both platforms. SugarHouse operates in New Jersey under the license of Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City.
In Pennsylvania, online casino isn’t expected to launch until July.
Additionally, customers can accumulate Loyalty Level Points and Bonus Store Points – both features of SugarHouse’s iRush Rewards program – through their gameplay on either the casino or sportsbook platform.
Creating an account on SugarHouse Sportsbook
New users will need to begin by creating an account at SugarHouse PA or SugarHouse NJ, which can be done through either the desktop or mobile version. In Pennsylvania, the app and web browser is currently only available on Android devices.
Users can then click the orange “Join Now” button in the upper right-hand corner of the desktop platform to initiate the process. After that point, you’ll need to do the following:
- Create a screen name and password.
- Provide an e-mail address.
- Enter any applicable promotional code.
- There is also an expedited registration option near the bottom of the screen where existing customers can use their Rush Rewards or SugarHouse Casino4Fun account to register with SugarHouse Sportsbook.
Deposit and withdrawal methods
Following account creation, users will need to make an initial deposit to fund their forthcoming wagering activity on SugarHouse Sportsbook. Once the account is funded, you’ll receive a 100% match on your first deposit up to $250!
SugarHouse Sportsbook offers its users a variety of both deposit and withdrawal methods:
- Cash at the casino cage
- Credit Card (Visa, MasterCard)
- Prepaid SugarHouse card
- Bank wire
- PayNearMe at 7-11
An additional method for withdrawals only is checks.
SugarHouse Sportsbook’s homepage interface is relatively straightforward and user-friendly.
Upon entering the lobby, users will find five clickable tabs running across the top, beginning from the left-hand side of the screen:
- Get Started: Allows customers to establish an account on SugarHouse Sportsbook.
- Promotions: Provides details on all current special promotions.
- Rewards: Provides details on iRush Rewards program.
- Help Center: Provides answers to frequently asked questions about bonuses, promotions and sports betting in general.
- Casino: This link takes customers directly to SugarHouse’s extensive online casino offerings.
The homepage is anchored by a center panel that displays a “Live Right Now” listing of wagering options. Users can also perform a search for a specific sport, league or team through a search bar located right above the main center panel.
The betting options in the center panel can be customized by sport through the clicking of a vertical listing of tabs in a column on the left-hand side of the page. A “My Bet History” tab is located at the top of that listing and allows users to view their archive of sports wagers on the site.
To place a wager, users click on the tab for the specific game and specific bet related to that game they wish to make. Doing so activates a betting slip that will pop up on the right-hand side of the screen, which will pre-populate with the wager type and related odds. Once the user fills in the dollar amount they wish to stake and hit the “Place Bet” button, the bet is finalized.
The betting slip also contains links to both the Help Center and the customer’s bet history underneath at its very bottom.
Full selection of sports, leagues and bet types
SugarHouse offers customers a comprehensive selection of available leagues to wager on in that left-hand column. Currently, that list consists of:
- College Football
- NHL Preseason
- Tour Championship
- Premier League
- Liga MX
- Serie A
- La Liga
SugarHouse also lists all betting options by sport directly underneath the leagues listing. The sportsbook appears to go beyond other competitors in the state with some of its offerings, which include:

SugarHouse Sportsbook offers customers the expected full array of betting options found in other Garden state establishments, including:
- Moneyline/Run lines
- Over/under bets

- Cash Out live ticketing system — Users can cash in a live bet before the contest being wagered on is finalized.
