Sugar House Review
SugarHouse operates its mobile sportsbook in both New Jersey. Its sister company, BetRivers, operates in Pennsylvania and Indiana. Rush Street Gaming, which is based in Chicago, owns both entities and figures to be a big player in the legalized sports betting market.
SugarHouse offers a ton of different bet types for all sports, and while its app can be a little clunky, SugarHouse's $250 deposit match with only a 1x rollover is among the best in the industry.

SugarHouse Sportsbook FAQ
Where is SugarHouse Sportsbook legal?
You do not have to be a New Jersey or Pennsylvania resident to play at SugarHouse, but you do have to be within state lines. Location is verified either through your mobile device’s location services, or a plug-in on a desktop computer.
Can I make deposit or withdrawal requests when I am not in Pennsylvania or New Jersey?
Yes. You have full access to your account, other than betting real money, even when you are out of state.
That means if you won money while on brief trip through New Jersey or Pennsylvania, you can request a withdrawal even after you’ve left.
How do I sign up for an account at SugarHouse?
Follow this link.
If you’re already on the site, simply press the “Join Now” button in the top right of your screen, and follow the 3-step process to create your account.
You’ll be asked for information including your email address, street address, a username and password, and the last four digits of your social security number.
How do I deposit money into my SugarHouse account?
SugarHouse offers a variety of options for customers looking to deposit money.
- Online banking (ACH)
This option allows you to deposit directly through your bank account, without entering any credit card or other financial information. Simply choose your deposit amount, select the bank you use, and sign in using your online banking username and password. Then you’ll be able to review and confirm your deposit.
- Cash @ Casino Cage
This method involves visiting one of SugarHouse’s physical locations in either New Jersey (The Golden Nugget Casino, 600 Huron Avenue & Brigantine Boulevard, Atlantic City, NJ 08401) or Pennsylvania (SugarHouse Casino, 1001 N Delaware Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19125) and depositing money at the cashier.
You’ll need to present your government issued ID and tell the cashier that you’d like to deposit money into your online account. You may also be asked to provide your email address or screen name.
- Pay with Cash
If you’re looking to add money to your account using cash without visiting a casino, the Pay with Cash option gives you that ability.
Simply click the Pay with Cash option in your cashier menu, and register your account. You’ll be given the option of printing your PaySlip or saving it to your mobile device. In either case, you’ll need to bring it — along with your cash — to one of many participating retail locations, including 7-Eleven, have it scanned by the cashier, and pay him/her the amount you’d like added to your account.
It may take about 20 minutes for the money to actually be shown in your online balance.
- SugarHouse Play+ Card
For faster withdrawals, the SugarHouse Play+ Card is a solid option. After registering for it, you’ll receive the card in 10-14 business days, and from there you’ll be able to upload funds using standard methods like a credit or debit card.
Where the Play+ Card differs is when withdrawing. As soon as your withdrawal is accepted, the money will be available on your Play+ Card, which can be used for withdrawals at ATMs where Discover is accepted.
Note: Signing up for the SugarHouse Play+ Card has no impact on your credit score.
Simply follow the steps in the SugarHouse deposit menu and use your PayPal account.
- Credit/Debit Card
Once again, this follows the fairly standard process of using credit or debit cards online. Be aware, though, that many banks will block online gaming transactions, so you may need to try multiple cards, or reach out to your bank to attempt to resolve that issue if it arises.
Does SugarHouse match deposits for new customers?
Yes. SugarHouse has one of the best deposit matches among legal sportsbooks.
The book offers a 100% deposit match up to $250, which means if you deposit $250 after signing up, they’ll add an additional $250 on top of it in Bonus Money.
What promo code is required to get the SugarHouse deposit match?
The promo code for new customers is 250MATCH. Simply enter that promo code as you make your initial deposit and you’ll see your deposit amount matched in your Bonus Bank.
What happens if I forget to enter a promo code when I deposit?
Don’t worry, you can still apply promo codes to past deposits.
Simply select the deposit option in the cashier menu as you normally would, including selecting the deposit method you used.
You’ll then see an option at the bottom titled “Recent Deposits,” and in the row of your deposit will be an option to add a code. After you’ve added a valid code, the system will immediately apply your bonus.
How do I get access to my deposit match from the Bonus Bank?
In order to have full access to your deposit match (including withdrawal), you’ll need it to be transferred to your actual cash balance. To do that, you simply have to wager the amount your deposit/match. In other words, if you take advantage of the full $250 match, you’ll need to make $250 worth of bets before the money converts to your cash balance.
Compared to other sportsbooks, that one-time rollover is a pretty sweet deal. Some others will force you to wager two or three times your initial deposit before being able to withdraw, which, in their eyes, increases the likelihood that you’ll lose some of the money.
Do I have to put my all of my deposit match Bonus Money on one bet?
No. You simply need to rack up a total amount wagered (on however many bets you’d like) equal to your deposit.
There is one stipulation, however: In order for bets to count toward your rollover, they cannot have odds larger than -200. In other words, a -300 bet would not be considered part of your rollover, while a -150, -110, or any bet at even- or plus-money, would.
How do I withdraw money from my SugarHouse account?
Your withdrawal options are very similar to your deposit options. You can directly deposit through online banking, cash out at a physical casino, receive a check by mail or have the funds transferred to your SugarHouse Play+ Card.
Withdrawals can be requested at any time, but know that any ongoing bonuses will cancelled, and bonus funds cannot be withdrawn. Your bonus fund amount, however, will not be affected.
How long does it take for me to receive my money after requesting a withdrawal?
Like almost every sportsbook, SugarHouse processes withdrawal requests in the order that they are received, which usually takes place within 24 hours. Requests do have to also be approved, however, which could take up to 72 hours (though they usually don’t take that long).
From there, the amount of time it will take you to receive your money depends on your chosen withdrawal method.
SugarHouse Play+ Card holders will have access to their money right away, online banking direct deposits may take between 2 and 5 business days, PayPal users will see the money in their account within 30 minutes of approval, those who wish to cash out at a physical casino location will be able to do so immediately, and checks by mail will arrive in 10 to 14 business days.
Does SugarHouse charge fees?
There are no fees for registering or having an account.
Occasionally, credit card deposits result in a cash advance charge from the card issuer, which can be avoided by using the SugarHouse Play+ Card.
How old do I have to be to place bets at SugarHouse?
You must be at least 21 years old to bet legally in the United States.
What sports are available to bet at SugarHouse?
SugarHouse offers a wide variety of sports, including …
Football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, golf, tennis, UFC, darts, motor sports, table tennis, cycling, surfing, rugby, snooker, volleyball, cricket, house specials and more.
Does SugarHouse offer live sports betting?
Yes, SugarHouse does offer live betting. And with some smaller-market sports offered in their live betting catalog, their live options exceed many of their competitors.
In addition to traditional live sports betting, SugarHouse offers “buy outs.”
A buy out gives you the opportunity to win your bet before the game is over.
Let’s say your bet has a good chance of winning, but you’re worried about the always-possible bad beat, and you’d like to ensure you avoid it. You can buy out of your bet, and receive an amount close to the full payout that would’ve come with a win.
In another sense, if you simply change your mind on a bet after placing it, you have the option of buying out of it and having it taken off the table.
Does SugarHouse offer a refer-a-friend bonus?
Yes! And you can win up to $500 for referring a friend.
How do I refer a friend?
After selecting the refer a friend option in your menu, you’ll be prompted to give your name and email, as well as the names and emails of up to three friends.
From there, your friends will have 30 days to deposit a minimum of $50 in order for your bonus to kick in. Once that happens, you’ll receive a scratch card revealing your prize (which could be as much as $500).
What devices can I use to deposit or wager at SugarHouse?
Bettors can access their accounts via iOS and Android devices, as well as Mac or PC via desktop.
Is the SugarHouse app free?
Yes. Both the iOS and Andriod apps are free, and allow anyone to create an account and sample games from anywhere.
For those wishing to play for real money, however, you’ll need deposit money into your account, and be in New Jersey or Pennsylvania with your location services turned on.
Can I cancel a bet I’ve made?
No, not really. But SugarHouse’s buy-out option allows you to take your wager off the table before the event has started or is complete. The amount you’ll receive will depend on the odds of your bet as well as the current state of the given game or event.
What’s the difference between SugarHouse and Bovada?
In short, the major difference is legality.
Bovada is an offshore book, while SugarHouse is legal, and backed by a government body.
Since Bovada isn’t backed, your funds are never truly safe. In other words, you have no course of action if they defraud you.
Other benefits to using SugarHouse as opposed to illegal sportsbooks:
1. You can more easily deposit, since you can simply use your online banking account or credit card as opposed to going through cryptocurrencies or other methods with which you might be unfamiliar.
2. Your deposit match bonus has just a one-time rollover, so you’ll actually see the bonus money in a timely fashion.
3. You’ll get your money much more quickly when withdrawing. Even though SugarHouse allows itself 72 hours to complete the process, it’s usually much, much faster.
Other SugarHouse Benefits
SugarHouse tries to incentivize users to come back daily with different promotions tied to specific games. Their boosted odds can be a great way to prop up your bankroll with +EV bets.
An example of this is that SugarHouse will often boost the moneyline in a game by 20-30 cents (moving from +100 to +130) to give bettors an advantage in a particular contest. These boosts are available to all customers, not just new clients.
iRush Rewards Loyalty Program
Every wager you make will earn Loyalty Level points and Bonus Store points, which can be used to purchase rewards from the Bonus Store. As your Loyalty Level continues to increase, so too will the size of your rewards in the Bonus Store.
The Bonus Bank makes it easy for you to track and control the money you earn from bonuses. You can choose when to use your Bonus Money (and how much of it to use), and are given the ability to accumulate multiple bonuses.
SugarHouse Customer Service
SugarHouse’s customer service team is available through their online chat from 9:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. ET or by email.
