December 22 marked a momentous day for Penn National Gaming as they held the official grand opening of Hollywood Casino Morgantown, in Morgantown, PA, their fourth gaming and entertainment facility in Pennsylvania. 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, joined Penn National Gaming team members for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and then welcomed thousands of guests to experience the facility.
“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.
“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.
