The first of two live money sports betting test days at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course began Thursday afternoon. The Company’s Pennsylvania sports book will be managed by William Hill US, the largest sports betting operator in the United States.
Timothy J. Wilmott, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Penn National is excited to be the first casino to offer sports wagering in Pennsylvania. The enthusiasm around sports betting has been growing since the federal ban was repealed in May, and we look forward to providing our patrons with another great amenity to enjoy at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course.”
Penn National will be operating its sports book in the existing simulcast theater next to the Skybox Sports Bar.
