The grand opening of the Hollywood Casino, developed by Penn National Gaming in York, Pennsylvania, has taken place.
The casino is a $120m entertainment destination developed by PNG in the lower level of the former Sears location at CBL’s York Galleria Mall. It features 500 slots and 24 tables, a Barstool Sportsbook and Racebook.
The venue covers 80,000sq.ft and comes with a casual restaurant and bar.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the opening of Hollywood Casino, which is the second casino to open in CBL’s portfolio in the last year,” said Stephen Lebovitz, chief executive officer, CBL Properties. “This exciting new combination of entertainment, dining and gaming will be a tremendous addition to York Galleria and a huge draw from well beyond the mall’s existing trade area.”
Lebovitz added: “Our partners at PNG have successfully created a one-of-a-kind experience for the visitors to the property. Hollywood Casino enhances the offerings already available at York Galleria and will spur additional development and solidify the property as the retail, dining, and entertainment destination in the region.”
