Penn National Gaming has announced that it plans to open Hollywood Casino York to the public on Thursday, August 12, at noon, pending final regulatory approvals. The Category 4 casino, located at the York Galleria Shopping Center in Springetsbury, is the third Penn National institution in Pennsylvania, along with the Hollywood Casino at the Penn National Race Course in Grantville and the Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Washington. The fourth facility, Hollywood Casino Morgantown, is scheduled to open later this year.
“The countdown to our grand opening begins today,” said Ruben Warren, vice president and CEO of Hollywood Casino York . “We are very pleased to welcome visitors to this beautiful new hotel soon, where they will be able to enjoy first-class games, dinner and entertainment.”
The approximately 80,000-square-foot area will house about 500 slot machines and 24 table games, and will have a capacity of up to 750 slot machines and 40 table games. Hollywood Casino York will also offer a Barstool Sportsbook and a racing book; Diner & Drinks, a casual restaurant and bar; and a Classic Grill diner.
Before the grand opening, Penn National will host two invitation-only test days, with proceeds from the games going to charities in the area, including the York County Veterans Aid Program, the York County Food Bank, the Sandy Veterans Aid Hand, and local VFW organizations and American Legion Posts.
