Striking professional partnerships is nothing new for professional sports teams. However, betting partnerships are still fairly new, and have become almost an inevitability in recent years. Some of the most popular teams across different sports leagues now have partnerships with different sportsbook and casino brands, such as the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Lakers, and Las Vegas Raiders.
Now, one of the top franchises in Pennsylvania has added a new partnership as the Philadelphia 76ers have inked a new deal with a popular gaming company, which will include more collaboration with its betting brands. Let’s take a deeper look at the new partnership between the Philadelphia 76ers and Greenwood Gaming & Entertainment.
New Deal Furthers Partnership Between Philadelphia 76ers And Parx Casino
The Philadelphia 76ers have just announced a new extension to the team’s deal with Greenwood Gaming & Entertainment that will further connect the team with Parx Casino and mobile betting platform betPARX. A major part of the deal now has both betPARX and Parx Casino as official banner partners of the franchise. Parx Casino, which has been the official casino partner of the team, will now collaborate on hosting watch parties for different matchups throughout the season. These events will be held at the Parx Casino Liberty Bell Beer Garden and include a drink ticket and slot machine voucher.
Plus, betPARX will hold special promotions after every 76ers win this regular season, which will provide users with random bonuses of up to $76. There has been no word if the partnership will involve any type of retail sports betting at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, where the 76ers play home games.

What Other Partnerships Have the Philadelphia 76ers Made?
The extended deal with Greenwood Gaming is hardly the only betting partnership that the Philadelphia 76ers organization has made. The team has signed deals with some of the top sports betting operators on the market, such as DraftKings Sportsbook, a platform that got its start in the world of daily fantasy sports. The 76ers have also made a deal with BetMGM Sportsbook, one of the top sports betting apps on the market from MGM Resorts International.
Another top U.S. sports betting site from Caesars Entertainment, Caesars Sportsbook, has also partnered with the team. Add in additional deals with the Flutter Entertainment betting app FOX Bet and international sportsbook Betway, and the 76ers now have a major amount of different gambling partnerships. With the popularity of the Pennsylvania betting market, it’s no surprise that the team has made so many deals.

Philadelphia 76ers 2022-23 Season Outlook
Like all the top teams in the league, the Philadelphia 76ers have the NBA Finals as their ultimate goal. The team made it to the Eastern Conference semifinals before losing to the Miami Heat in six games. As long as Joel Embiid is on the team, the 76ers will be a threat. Many believed Embiid deserved the MVP last season, and he will have another chance to prove his importance to the team against a competitive field.
James Harden, acquired midseason last year, will also be a key piece if this team makes a serious Finals run. The offseason acquisition of P.J. Tucker should also benefit the team as they take on talented Eastern Conference squads like the Boston Celtics, Milwaukee Bucks, and Miami Heat.
