After almost three and a half months of self-imposed silence due to the pandemic, Philly region’s casinos are poised to make some noise.
Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino & Racetrack, and Valley Forge Casino Resort will reopen tomorrow, and Parx Casino in Bensalem, Pennsylvania’s highest grossing casino, will do so next Monday.
In New Jersey, Gov. Phil Murphy announced Monday that Atlantic City’s nine casinos can reopen on July 2 at 25% capacity, with everyone inside the building wearing masks. Indoor dining and racetracks can also resume on July 2 at reduced capacity.
The lone holdout in the rush to reopen is the Rivers Casino Philadelphia, which has not set a date to resume operations, a Rivers spokesman said Monday.
