Hollywood Casino Morgantown to open on 22 December

22 November 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Penn National Gaming, Inc. announced today that it expects to open Hollywood Casino Morgantown to the public on Wednesday, 22 December, at noon, pending final regulatory approvals. Hollywood Casino Morgantown is conveniently located at the intersections of three major roadways: the Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-76), I-176, and the Morgantown Expressway (Rt. 10). The Morgantown Category 4 casino represents Penn National’s fourth facility in Pennsylvania, 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, state-of-the-art Barstool Sportsbook, and three unique dining options. At the Barstool Sportsbook, patrons will be able to enjoy sports from around the world on the jumbotron above the bar or on numerous high-definition televisions throughout the facility. The 150 seat full-service restaurant will offer a wide selection of food and beverage options, from mouth-watering steaks to classic pubfare, more than a dozen craft and domestic beers, hand-crafted cocktails inspired by classic sports movies and much more. Betting windows and kiosks for sports and racing are conveniently located throughout the sportsbook, along with interactive games, an outdoor firepit and a Barstool Sportsbook merchandise station.

In addition, the Company partnered with Tony Luke’s to bring his restaurant and a taste of South Philly to Morgantown. Tony’s signature cheesesteaks, roast pork Italian sandwiches and many of his award-winning delicacies will be available for customers to enjoy. With seating for up to 100 at the adjacent Bar 76 on the gaming floor, patrons will be able to grab-and-go and watch the action while eating the best cheesesteaks available on the north side of the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

Finally, Hollywood Casino Morgantown will also host the Red Lotus Asian Kitchen, serving patrons authentic made-to-order Asian cuisine. Red Lotus will feature popular noodle and southeast Asian specialties designed to excite the senses in a sleek, modern designed open-kitchen just off the gaming floor.

Prior to the grand opening, Penn National will host two invitation-only test days, with gaming proceeds donated to charitable organizations 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 organizations in Berks, Chester and Lancaster Counties,” said 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 $111 million, including license fees, and career opportunities are still available for the approximately 375 new jobs at the facility. Interested applicants can visit the Hollywood Casino Morgantown Career center, located at the Holiday Inn Morgantown at 6170 Morgantown Road. Various positions are available in casino operations, food and beverage, security and surveillance, human resources, marketing and more, pending regulatory approval.
