The Greenwood Gaming building will certainly be a completely qualified sportsbook today, if every little thing goes as planned. Parx Sportsbook is waiting up until after that to hold its main opening.
Parx Sportsbook Accepts First Official Wagers
Senior vice president of interactive gaming and sports, Matthew Cullen, is “thrilled to launch legalized sports betting..” He spoke about the development of offerings in a news release:
“Parx is expanding our portfolio of offerings and giving patrons the absolute best types of legalized gaming. Sports betting will first go live at our main property, and then roll out in the South Philadelphia Turf Club and then later at the Valley Forge Turf Club.”
Parx is putting in $10 million for a brand-new sportsbook powered by the Kambi Group.
In the meantime, however, players will continue placing their bets near the old 360 Bar & Lounge. Testing hours will be taking place from 2 to 10 p.m. on Tuesday and also Wednesday.
As soon as the testing stage finishes, the sportsbook will be open 7 days a week:
Sundays: 9 a.m. to 12 a.m.
Mondays: 1 p.m. to 12 a.m.
Tuesdays-Fridays: 1 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Saturdays: 9 a.m. to 1 a.m.
Sports betting booths are situated throughout the casino floor. It is most likely not a surprise that Parx Sportsbook will take wagers for NFL playoff games and the Super Bowl.
” The market is insane for (the Eagles), as we’ve seen at the SugarHouse and at Rivers,” Cullen said. “But even if they’re out, people are still gonna want to bet (on football). But it would be great if they were playing.”
Parx will certainly take wagers for not only football. Players will have the opportunity to also place bets on MLB, NHL, NBA and NCAA games
Parx Sportsbook will be the 4th sportsbook in the Keystone State. Along with Parx, players from Pennsylvania can place wagers at Hollywood Casino, SugarHouse Casino and Rivers Casino.
The sports betting market is most likely going to get flooded sooner than expected. When Parx Sportsbook is up and running, Greenwood will turn to its next project at the South Philadelphia Turf Club. It currently has conditional authorization and is preparing to launch
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) has already conditionally authorized Harrah’s Philadelphia as well as Valley Forge Casino to accept wagers. Presque Isle Downs has actually sent its application to the PGCB and is pending its conditional authorization.
However, sports betting is restricted to brick-and-mortar sportsbooks. The PGCB made it clear it intends to concentrate on releasing retail sportsbooks prior to dealing with online sportsbooks. They will be competing with well-known sportsbooks such as Bovada, MyBookie and Betonline.
In New Jersey, mobile sports betting represents most of sports betting profits in the state. Undoubtedly, Pennsylvania sportsbooks are eagerly waiting to take their mobile sports betting applications live.
Pennsylvania online sportsbooks will likely be ready to launch in 2019. In the meantime, Parx Sportsbook is cheering for the Philadelphia Eagles and the magic touch of Nick Foles to reach the Super Bowl.
The exhilaration around the Eagles will definitely fill up the sportsbooks, making the Parx Sportsbook launch rather prompt.
