Penn National Gaming celebrates grand opening of Hollywood Casino Morgantown

22 December 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Today marks the grand opening of Hollywood Casino Morgantown, the fourth gaming and entertainment facility in Pennsylvania by Penn National Gaming, Inc. The $111 million state-of-the-art casino is the company’s 44th property in North America.

State gaming officials, legislators and area dignitaries, including Philadelphia Eagles legend Vince Papale, are joining Penn National Gaming team members for a ribbon-cutting ceremony this morning. Hollywood Casino Morgantown will then open to the public at 12:00 p.m. and welcome thousands of guests to experience 750 of the newest slot machines, 30 table games, a retail Barstool Sportsbook, upscale casual dining and above all, premier guest service.

“We would like to officially welcome players and guests to Hollywood Casino Morgantown, our fourth property in the Commonwealth,” said Todd George, Executive Vice President of Operations for Penn National. “We’re thrilled to showcase this regional entertainment destination, offering premier gaming and dining in a modern atmosphere. In addition, we’re grateful for the support of our host community, Caernarvon Township, and to all of our local and state legislators and regional business leaders who helped make this day possible. We’re proud to be creating jobs and starting a new economic engine right here in Berks County.

“We’re also excited to outfit this casino with our innovative ‘3Cs’ technology, which provides for a cardless, cashless, contactless ‘mywallet’ experience. I would like to thank the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board for their support as well as our technology partners Everi Holdings and Acres Manufacturing. This next-level technology, which is in place at all four of our Pennsylvania casinos, further supports our omnichannel business approach in which we provide the best experiences whether people are playing at our properties or across our numerous online offerings,” added George.

The roughly 80,000 square foot gaming and entertainment facility employs approximately 375 people and generated over 275 construction jobs. Open 7 days a week and 24 hours a day on Friday and Saturday, the fun and excitement will continue 365 days a year.

Gaming Floor

Hollywood Casino Morgantown’s gaming floor features 750 of the latest video reel slot and video poker machines, as well as 30 exciting table games, including blackjack, craps, roulette, baccarat, and more. The Barstool Sportsbook includes a state-of-the-art jumbotron above the bar, bleacher seating, sports betting tellers and sports wagering and racing kiosks, along with interactive games, an outdoor firepit and a Barstool Sportsbook merchandise station.

All gaming at Hollywood Casino Morgantown is also outfitted with Penn National’s cashless, cardless and contactless capabilities.

Dining and Entertainment

Hollywood Casino Morgantown includes three casual dining options – Barstool Sportsbook, Tony Luke’s and Red Lotus Asian Kitchen – as well as Bar 76, a 100-seat bar and entertainment lounge on the gaming floor.

Barstool Sportsbook is a full service, classic casual restaurant that seats roughly 150 patrons in the dining room and bar. Guests can enjoy a wide array 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.

Tony Luke’s will showcase the award winning chef’s taste of South Philly in Morgantown, where patrons will be able to enjoy grab-and-go offerings of his signature cheesesteaks, roast pork Italian sandwiches and many of his award winning delicacies, plus Starbucks® Coffee.

Red Lotus Asian Kitchen will serve patrons authentic made-to-order Asian cuisine, featuring popular noodle and southeast Asian specialties designed to excite the senses in a sleek, modern designed open-kitchen just off the gaming floor.
