Legalized sports betting has finally arrived in Pennsylvania.
If you consider Harrisburg part of Pennsylvania!
Penn National Gaming yesterday began two live money sports betting test days at Hollywood Casino.
The purpose of the test days is to ensure Hollywood Casino’s staff and the equipment that is needed to operate sports wagering is in compliance with requirements.
Penn National will be operating its sports book in the simulcast theater next to the Skybox Sports bar, which was completely renovated.
Yesterday was the first test day, and it will continue today and tomorrow.
The enthusiasm around sports betting has been growing since the federal ban was repealed in May.
Philly area casinos Parx, Harrah’s Philly, Sugarhouse and Valley Forge Casino are scheduled to open in a couple of weeks.
