Hollywood Casino Morgantown

Penn National Gaming is to officially debut its latest Pennsylvania-based gaming property, with the $111m Hollywood Casino Morgantown to open on December 22, pending final regulatory approvals.

The category four venue represents the company’s fourth facility in the Keystone State, joining Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Grantville, Hollywood Casino at the Meadows in Washington and Hollywood Casino York, which opened in August.

“The countdown to our grand opening begins today,” said Marc Guastella, vice president and general manager for Hollywood Casino Morgantown

“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 approximately 80,000 square-foot facility will feature 750 of the latest slot machines and 30 table games, a climate-controlled outdoor gaming terrace, Barstool Sportsbook, and dining options. 

At the group’s retail sports betting space, patrons will be able to enjoy sports from around the world on a jumbotron situated above the bar, in addition to numerous high-definition televisions.

Betting windows and kiosks for sports and racing are located throughout the sportsbook, along with interactive games, an outdoor firepit and merchandise station.

Prior to the grand opening, Penn National will host two invitation-only test days, with gaming proceeds donated to charitable organisations in the area.

The participating charities include the United Way of Berks County, Honey Brook Food Pantry and the Jarett Yoder Foundation, which serves community heroes and their families, including active military personnel, veterans, firefighters, first responders and the police.

“We are thrilled to be supporting these incredible organisations in Berks, Chester and Lancaster Counties,” added Guastella. 

“Penn National is committed to being actively engaged in the community and partnering with worthwhile groups to assist those in need.”

The development of Hollywood Casino Morgantown represents an overall investment of approximately $111m, including license fees, and career opportunities are still available for the approximately 375 new jobs at the facility.
