In November, residents of West Virginia were excited to gain access to the new online casino from Fanatics. This was a significant milestone for Fanatics as they entered the online casino vertical for the first time. Existing PointsBet users were given clear instructions on how to access their accounts with the operator. The launch was made possible after Fanatics agreed to acquire PointsBet’s US-facing assets the previous year.

According to a report by Play Pennsylvania, Fanatics is now set to expand its online casino operations to Pennsylvania with a planned launch next week. Users who had PointsBet accounts were notified by Fanatics that their accounts would be transitioned to Fanatics sportsbook and casino in the coming week. Users will receive further instructions and are reassured that their information, including Rewards Points, Bonus Bets, and outstanding balance, will be automatically transferred to Fanatics sportsbook and casino.

However, it was clarified that the Free Spins belonging to users with PointsBet Casino accounts will not be transferred to the new platform. Fanatics promised to provide more details about the upcoming launch soon. An email sent to PointsBet users confirmed the transition, stating, “PointsBet is becoming Fanatics Sportsbook and Casino, and your account is moving with you next week.”

Fanatics also offers a loyalty program, allowing punters to earn FanCash, a form of loyalty currency that can be exchanged for bonus wagers or used to purchase sportswear of their favorite team. This provides an added incentive for customers to engage with the online gambling and sports wagering platform.

Fanatics initially acquired PointsBet’s US-facing assets for $225 million after originally proposing $150 million, which was later increased to compete with a $195 million proposal from industry rival DraftKings. Ultimately, Fanatics secured the acquisition for $225 million, tapping into the established customer base of PointsBet. This move marks an ambitious expansion for Fanatics as they continue to establish themselves in the online casino and sports betting market.
