Penn National Gaming will host the grand opening of its $120m Hollywood York Casino, which will become the casino operator’s third gaming and entertainment facility within Pennsylvania.
State gaming officials, legislators and area dignitaries are joining the firm’s team members for a ribbon-cutting ceremony this morning.
Hollywood Casino York will then welcome guests to experience a cardless, cashless, and contactless gaming experience with over 500 slot machines and 24 table games, as well as the first retail Barstool Sportsbook in the Keystone state.
“We would like to officially welcome players and guests to Hollywood Casino York,” said Todd George, executive vice president of operations for Penn National.
“We’re thrilled to be opening our 43rd property in North America, our third in the Commonwealth, and showcasing Hollywood Casino York’s unique style of premier gaming, dining and entertainment in a truly modern atmosphere.
“Importantly, it has been an honor to be welcomed by Springettsbury Township and the surrounding communities, creating new jobs and starting a new economic engine right here in York County.”
Hollywood Casino York, an approximately 80,000 square foot gaming and entertainment facility that employs 290 people and generated 230 construction jobs, joins Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course and The Meadows Casino Racetrack Hotel, in PNG’s Pennsylvania stable.
“We are also very excited to be launching our cutting edge ‘3C’ technology at Hollywood Casino York: our cardless, cashless, contactless ‘mywallet,’ added George.
“This is a revolutionary enhancement for our industry, and I want to thank the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board for their support and our technology partners Everi Holdings and Acres Manufacturing.
“This technology further supports Penn National’s omnichannel business approach where we are providing the best experiences, whether people are playing with us at our properties or on our numerous online offerings.”
