Las Vegas Sands CEO Sheldon Adelson has long opposed online gaming, but the company’s Sands Bethlehem casino in Pennsylvania has won an igaming licence along with Boyd Gaming.


Sands Bethlehem intends to offer online slots, table games and poker, perhaps by the end of the year, but by then the property could be owned by the Poarch Creek Indians, who are in the process of buying it.

The Poarch Creek operate a social gaming website that they hope to transform into a real-money igaming site for Sands Bethlehem, Cooper Levenson attorney Lynne Kaufman, who represents the tribe, said.

Boyd’s Valley Forge casino will offer online slots, video poker, table games, live dealer games and poker while race and sports betting will come later. The igaming site will run on GAN’s platform while Paddy Power Betfair’s FanDuel will market the site and provide branding for it. IGT will integrate sports betting on GAN’s platform once the casino receives necessary approvals.
