Following on from their launch in New Jersey, BetAmerica wasted no time going across the border to Pennsylvania once they started accepting sports bets. Just before Christmas 2019, BetAmerica tweeted out that they were live and they started taking sports bets on December 20 in the Keystone State.
Subsequently parent company TwinSpires decided to rebrand their BetAmerica operations in PA and IN under the TwinSpires banner in April 2021. They have long been associated with the sport of Horse Racing and in particular - the Kentucky Derby. Yet they have plenty of knowledge of online sports betting and should be considered very safe and secure when it comes to opening a betting account.
BetAmerica was probably more well known for their Horse Racing product, which was bought out by Churchill Downs Inc. in 2017. Once PASPA was repealed by the Supreme Court in the early summer of 2018 however, the race was on to launch a Sportsbook and they were into New Jersey fast and early success there has led to expansion into PA.
The risk-free first bet wager offer of $1,000 has now been transferred to PA. At the time of launch, this offer was available to customers in NJ only but come the rebrand - that offer has now hopped over the border and is available to sports fans in the state.

TwinSpires are partnered up with the Presque Isle Downs & Casino in Erie, PA, so you’ll be able to complete any transactions in-person at the Cage at the casino.
The color scheme of the site lacks color and feels a little bit monochromic. It certainly isn't the easiest site to read and follow. In particular, we found the spread lines and numbers extremely tough to follow.
