The gaming company will launch the first physical sportsbook and bar venue by Barstool in Pennsylvania at Hollywood Casino York in late August.

US.- Penn National has announced it will launch the first East Coast Barstool Sportsbook and bar located at a Pennsylvania casino, the Hollywood Casino York.

According to a company, the mini-casino is scheduled to open in late August in a repurposed section of the York Galleria Mall.

The Hollywood Casino York General Manager Ruben Warren anticipated the move a few weeks ago when he mentioned Barstool Sportsbook & Bar was pending arrival during his welcome greeting on the mini-casino’s website.

He said: “The casino will include a new concept Barstool Sportsbook and Bar with exciting interactive experiences”.

Although Barstool already has a significant presence as a mobile sportsbook in Pennsylvania, it still doesn’t have any physical venues.

The Hollywood casino had a sportsbook before the Covid-19 pandemic, but although a betting window and kiosks are still available, the sports lounge is now closed. It will reopen with a new look and the Barstool name.

Penn National has announced it acquired the 36 per cent interest in Barstool Sports for $163m last year.
