Penn National Gaming has announced that it expects to open Hollywood Casino York to the public on Thursday 12 August, pending final customary regulatory approvals.
Located in the York Galleria Mall in Springettsbury Township, the category four casino, which was awarded final approval in December 2019, represents PNG’s third facility in Pennsylvania, joining Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Grantville and The Meadows Racetrack & Casino in Washington. A fourth property, Hollywood Casino Morgantown, is scheduled to open later this year.
“The countdown to our grand opening begins today,” said Ruben Warren, vice president and general manager for Hollywood Casino York.
“We’re very excited to soon welcome patrons to this beautiful new property, where they’ll be able to experience premier gaming, dining and entertainment.”
The roughly 80,000 square foot facility will feature approximately 500 slot machines and 24 table games, with capacity for up to 750 slot machines and 40 table games. Hollywood Casino York will also offer a Barstool sportsbook and racebook; diner and drinks, a casual restaurant and bar; and a grab-and-go eatery.
Prior to the grand opening, the company will host two invitation-only test days, with gaming proceeds going to charitable organizations in the area, including York County Veterans Outreach, York County Food Bank, Mr Sandy’s Veterans Helping Hand and local VFWs and American Legion posts.
“We are thrilled to be supporting the work of these incredible organizations in York County,” added Warren. “Penn National is committed to being actively engaged in the community and partnering with worthwhile groups to assist those in need.”
