Penn National Gaming announced today that it expects to open Hollywood Casino York to the public on Thursday, August 12th, at Noon, pending final customary regulatory approvals. Located in the York Galleria Mall in Springettsbury Township, the Category 4 casino represents Penn National’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 race book; Diner & Drinks, a casual restaurant and bar; and the Classic Grill grab-and-go eatery.
Prior to the grand opening, Penn National 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, Sandy’s Veterans Helping Hand and local VFWs and American Legion posts.
