Hollywood Casino Morgantown, the fourth gaming and entertainment facility in Pennsylvania by Penn National Gaming, has opened. The $111m casino is the company’s 44th property to open in North America.

Penn National Gaming joined legislators, state gaming officials and area dignitaries, including Philadelphia Eagles’ Vince Papale, for the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Hollywood Casino Morgantown will welcome guests in the thousands to experience 750 innovative slot machines, 20 table games, a retail barstool sportsbook and dining experiences.

Todd George, Penn National EVP of Operations, said: “We would like to officially welcome players and guests to Hollywood Casino Morgantown, our fourth property in the Commonwealth.

“We’re thrilled to showcase this regional entertainment destination, offering premier gaming and dining in a modern atmosphere. In addition, we’re grateful for the support of our host community, Caernarvon Township, and to all of our local and state legislators and regional business leaders who helped make this day possible.

“We’re proud to be creating jobs and starting a new economic engine right here in Berks County.”

With 80,000 square feet of gaming and entertainment space, the facility employs approximately 375 people, generating over 275 construction jobs and will be open seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

“We’re also excited to outfit this casino with our innovative ‘3Cs’ technology, which provides for a cardless, cashless, contactless ‘mywallet’ experience. I would like to thank the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board for their support as well as our technology partners Everi Holdings and Acres Manufacturing,” continued George.
