Pennsylvania grants sports betting licenses10/04/2018 – Confirmed
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) said on Wednesday it has approved two sports betting licenses for the Parx Casino in Bucks County and Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course near Harrisburg. Board spokesman Doug Harbach said that there are still some regulatory hurdles pending, but most of them are approval of entities that are set to work with the operators.
The upcoming weeks might see the actual launch of sports betting in the state, estimating approvals will come through this month, launching the markets in early November. Three other operators are currently awaiting the board’s approval for their petitions to offer sports betting: SugarHouse in Philadelphia, Harrah’s in Chester, and The Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh.
