New plans have been announced by FanDuel and Boyd Gaming Corporation to launch a “Stardust” online casino in Pennsylvania.
The anticipated launch date has been set for some time in April 2021, and players will be able to download the mobile app for both iOS and Android mobile devices.
You might remember the legendary Stardust Casino being featured prominently in TV shows and films. It was known for its iconic sign visible to everyone along the Las Vegas Strip.
Sadly, the physical casino is no more. It was razed in 2007. But, the creative minds behind this new joint venture are looking to bring some of that old nostalgia back to life with the launch of this new online casino.
Keith Smith, the President and CEO of Boyd Gaming, said: “For nearly 50 years, the Stardust was one of the most famous casinos on the Las Vegas Strip. And while the resort has been gone for more than a decade, the Stardust brand is still as well-known and popular as ever. We are excited to work with our partners at FanDuel to launch our first real-money online casinos and are confident this legendary brand will give us a significant advantage in connecting with players looking for a distinctive online gaming experience.”
Amy Howe, President of FanDuel Group added, “The new Stardust Casino will retain all of the great games that customers love on Betfair Casino while incorporating a new stylish look that captures the glitz, glamour, and nostalgia of old Las Vegas. Stardust Casino allows us to take a market-leading product to the next level, creating a unified platform across New Jersey and Pennsylvania and integrating Boyd Gaming’s B Connected player loyalty program to provide even more value to our customers.”
What can PA players expect?
Players in Pennsylvania can expect a wide range of key features from this new online casino, including:
- Boyd Gaming’s B Connected player loyalty program, allowing players to earn B Connected points and tier credits for their play on Stardust Casino.
- All of their favorite casino games, including slots, blackjack, roulette, video poker, and baccarat, as well as live dealer games.
- The ability to securely and quickly cash out winnings.
- High-quality customer support, convenience, safety, and security that customers have come to expect from FanDuel.
- Boyd Gaming’s and FanDuel’s strong shared commitment to responsible gaming, ensuring players have access to several account protections.
All players must be within state boundaries and of legal age to gamble (21 years old) to play at Stardust casino.
Interesting fact: While Stardust Casino will be a new brand in PA’s iGaming market, the same joint venture will be a re-branding of the current Betfair online casino in New Jersey.
