Mount Airy Online Casino Review

Mount Airy Casino Resort PA is one of twelve holders of interactive gaming licenses awarded by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB). Mount Airy actually opted for the top tier license package costing $10 million. What their money actually bought them was three separate licenses that cover non-peer-to-peer table games, non-peer-to-peer slots, or peer-to-peer poker. What all of this peer-to-peer talk translates to is that Mount Airy can now launch an online casino that offers online table games, online slots, and online poker.

If the behind-the-scenes partnerships with big industry names like 888 and the Stars Group are any indication, Mount Airy seems set on having several iGaming sites in the Keystone State. The agreement with 888 is likely to result in a PA online casino carrying the Mount Airy name. The deal with the Stars Group opens up the possibility of PA also being home to a few PokerStars offerings that are co-branded with Mount Airy. Whatever their designs might be, we can expect to see a Mount Airy backed online casino in Pennsylvania during the first quarter of 2019.

While we have yet to see any PA online casino as of mid-Jan 2019 launch, Mount Airy has not just been sitting back and kicking their heels. In a rather innovative move, they have converted part of the Mount Airy Casino Resort website into a “virtual casino”. In case you are wondering, there is a big difference between a virtual casino and online casino. With a virtual casino, no real money is involved at all. What it does do is give Pennsylvania’s players a taste of what is to come and hopefully get them hyped for the launch of their actual regulated, real money online casino.

Software

Until Mount Airy and their partners make an official announcement and reveal their roles, it is a bit tricky trying to predict too much about the software as 888 and PokerStars NJ have rather different software platforms. However, what we can confidently predict is that the desktop will be based on the typical web browser set up. Rather than having to download any specialist software to access Mount Airy’s online casino, players will only need to have access to a stable internet connection that is able to verify that their physical location within Pennsylvania’s state borders and a free-to-use web browser like Google Chrome, Firefox, Mozilla, Safari or Explorer/Edge.

Gaming Selection

When it comes to the games selection on offer at Mount Airy Online Casino PA, gamers can expect the classic online gaming experience with a host of online slots, blackjack, roulette, and video poker offerings. By using PokerStars NJ as a yardstick, we should be able to predict what to expect come launch day.

Online Slots

As we’ve mentioned in our previous PA online casino previews, the PGCB saw fit to approve a revenue tax in excess of 50% on all slots. The chances are that PA online casinos will place less emphasis on their selection of slots when compared to online casinos in New Jersey where they are the main focus and usually account for half of the games on offer. With that being said, you should still be able to play some of the most popular slots, including:

  • Guns N’ Roses
  • StarBurst
  • Chili Gold and Flowers

Online Blackjack

Thanks to the high tax on slots we previously mentioned, Mount Airy will presumably place more of a focus on the other types of games on offer. Blackjack fans have reason to be excited since PokerStars NJ has this category wrapped up with an impressive selection of 8 online poker variations, with 100% of those titles likely to make their way to the Keystone State.

Online Roulette

When it comes to the classic wheel game of roulette, Mount Airy will undoubtedly offer variations based on European Roulette with its single zero slot wheel. However, if we look at PokerStars NJ there is a good chance the American wheel, with its double zero slots that favors the house, will not make the short trip to Pennsylvania.

Video Poker

Video poker is harder to predict based on the fact that the partnership with the Stars Group may lead to the launch of PokerStars PA. If that is the case, their online casino offering is likely to only have the bare minimum. However, if the decision results in Mount Airy using the Star Groups expertise to manage the video poker titles of their Mount Airy branded online casino, they could well have the most comprehensive selection of video poker titles in the state.

Mobile App

The brick and mortar Mount Airy Casino resort already has a mobile app that is aimed at attracting players to their casino floor. The chances are that the existing app will be tweaked so that it is more in line with the apps on offer from other regulated online casinos. The gaming selection which currently consists of just 8 slots should grow significantly.

A definite con, however, is the fact that is currently only at the App Store for iOS users. Luckily the launch of the mobile casino provides Mount Airy with the perfect opportunity to launch an Android version, bringing the app into line with industry norms.

Loyalty Program

Mount Airy Casino Resort already has a program called SmartPlay. Look to see this rewards program extended to the online casino on launch. Players will earn points every time they play online, with the points being combined with any they may earn from playing at the traditional casino. These points can be used as “resort dollars” and be spent onsite to earn reduced rates on rooms, meals, show tickets, golf course fees, and spa sessions.

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Neteller
  • PayPal
  • Electronic checks
  • Online banking transfers
  • PayNearMe
  • Cash at cashier cage at the Mount Airy Casino Resort cage in Philadelphia

  • Electronic check
  • Check by mail
  • PayPal
  • Cash at cashier cage at the Mount Airy Casino Resort cage in Philadelphia
  • PayPal (if the player previously used it as a deposit method)

Summary

Until Mount Airy, 888 and the Stars Group come out and tell us the exact nature, a lot we have discussed is conjecture based on educated assumptions. However, thanks to the expertise of the players involved in this venture, we’d be shocked if it does not turn out to be one of Pennsylvania’s premier online casinos.
