Are my winnings taxable?

How do I get started?

The signup process for SugarHouse is very simple and requires users to input some personal information as well as create a username and password for their account. Once this is completed, a geolocation search will be run to ensure that the user is in New Jersey or Pennsylvania.

How do I deposit and is there a minimum?

To deposit money onto the site, players can choose either a SugarHouse prepaid card, eCheck, online bill pay, PayNearMe at a 7-Eleven, in-person at the Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, or in-person at the SugarHouse brick-and-mortar in Pennsylvania.

Pros

SugarHouse is one of the online casinos in terms of their user experience. To start, the site looks beautiful. It has a great interface and runs very smoothly no matter what game the user is trying to play. Rush Street Interactive, SugarHouse’s parent company, has secured partnerships with a larger number of independent game developers, so their gaming selection is massive. The site has over 415 different types of slots available, and they have a really nice variety of live dealer games. SugarHouse has the following live games: six blackjack tables, two roulette tables, and one each for three card poker, Texas Holdem, and baccarat. They are one of the few sites in New Jersey or Pennsylvania to offer video bingo and video keno, and they have a good selection of virtual sports betting with horse, greyhound, motorcycle, and auto racing and soccer. Perhaps the best part about all of this is just how easy it is to get around the site. One of the issues that has crept up for a lot of the regulated online casinos is that it can often be difficult to find specific games.This is not an issue with SugarHouse as their site makes it very simple for users to search for the exact game that they are looking for.

Cons

Despite their large selection of slot machines and live dealer games, the table games are severely lacking on the SugarHouse site. Currently, the offerings are limited to blackjack, three card poker, and roulette. It is definitely frustrating to have to resort to a live dealer game to play baccarat, and to not even have video poker options on the site or the app is puzzling. They also have a limited number of banking options, and the biggest glaring omission on the site is that users cannot currently choose PayPal as a deposit or withdrawal method. This is frustrating when a lot of other sites in the New Jersey and Pennsylvania market offer this as an option.

Rewards

The SugarHouse rewards system is called iRush rewards, and users can earn both Loyalty Points and Rewards Points. Loyalty Points determine the user’s ranking level in the 10-tiered VIP program (there is an 11th tier that is invitation only), and Rewards Points can be redeemed for free spins on the bonus wheel, free scratch cards, and other bonuses. Rewards and Loyalty Points are earned based on the amount bet on specific games on the site. The numbers will vary from game to game.

How To Sign Up and Deposit

The signup process for SugarHouse is very simple and requires users to input some personal information as well as create a username and password for their account. Once this is completed, a geolocation search will be run to ensure that the user is in New Jersey or Pennsylvania.

Their table games are limited, but this is definitely a great option for players in the New Jersey or Pennsylvania market.
