Barstool Sportsbook App Set To Expand State Availability Across U.S.
Barstool Sportsbook seemed inevitable, and now it is a reality in a handful of states. Stoolies can wager on sports and against (or with) their favorite Barstool personalities, which is great for Penn National Gaming, Barstool’s parent company.
In case you have not heard by now, Barstool Sports partnered with Penn National Gaming in a historic partnership that brings two massive brands together. The details are quite extensive, but the summary includes Penn National Gaming having 36% of the company in exchange for $163M, and it makes Barstool the exclusive partner of Penn National Gaming for up to 40 years. The casino company gets access to Barstool’s ever-growing brand as well.
Penn National Gaming has casinos all over the country (in 20+ states), and continue to grow and acquire more markets. That aligns perfectly with Barstool Sports’ demographic, as a young, primarily male, fanbase that is all about sports and gambling bringing in nearly 70 million hits per month. That is exactly the target market for a casino and Barstool sports betting company, which has already paid dividends.
This means many things, but the first that came to everyone’s minds was one question: Which states have Barstool Sportsbook? Let’s take a look at when Barstool could be coming to your state.

— Dave Portnoy (@stoolpresidente) February 22, 2021
With recent news of Penn National Gaming and Rush Street Interactive agreeing to a two-way deal, this opens up a massive audience for Barstool Sportsbook. If New York passes legal sports betting (as it is trending), it looks that Barstool Sportsbook NY will be a reality. Of course, it is one of the larger markets in the world for sports betting and will certainly move the needle. New York would be the fourth or fifth state likely for Barstool, as they are in PA, MI, and soon to launch in Illinois.
Barstool Sports Betting App Launches September 15th
Barstool Sportsbook launched in September 2020, but before they opened up to the general public, there was a “soft launch” for a small group of pre-registered users. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) recently approved the Barstool Sportsbook app for a “soft launch” that will take place from Sept. 15-17.
The PGCB approved Barstool Sportsbook for full-scale launch on Sept. 18. This test period will give Penn National, Barstool Sportsbook’s parent company, an opportunity to work out the kinks before opening up the app to all users.
“I want to thank the PGCB and its staff for all their time and effort in reviewing and approving our app for this soft launch,” said Jay Snowden, President and CEO of Penn National. “I also want to thank all those who have been working tirelessly at Penn Interactive and our great partners at Barstool Sports for their many months of hard work and collaboration, as well as our risk management and platform providers, Kambi and White Hat Gaming. This is an important milestone in our Company’s continued evolution to be the leading omni-channel provider of retail and online gaming, live racing and sports betting entertainment, and we couldn’t be more excited to get underway,” concluded Mr. Snowden.
Okay so who wants to be the first to see and bet with the Barstool Sportsbook? Sign up to be invited to our soft launch next week. (space limited) https://t.co/MYxdkEVZAe

Personalities Push Barstool Sportsbook
Barstool Sports has always been driven by its larger-than-life personalities. That is no different with the Barstool Sportsbook app. Driving new users to the app through Barstool’s vast and loyal readership. Penn National is looking to capitalize on this with the launch of the Barstool Sportsbook app and eventually retail casinos.
“As the only gaming operator with a fully integrated sports media and entertainment partner, our customers will have the opportunity to engage with Dave Portnoy, Big Cat and other Barstool fan favorites on our app – including betting with them, or fading their picks,” continued Mr. Snowden. “Our customers will also have an opportunity to interact with Barstool personalities live at one of our many casinos’ retail Barstool Sportsbooks in the coming months.”
