Sports Betting

Officials have announced plans for a $10 million sports betting complex at the Bensalem casino.

In October, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board approved sports betting for the casino and its South Philadelphia Turf Club.

“Parx Casino® is thrilled to announce the launch of legalized sports betting on property and construction of a sleek, state-of-the-art Parx Sportsbook,” said Senior Vice President of Interactive Gaming Matthew Cullen,“We will build the best sportsbook in the country and set the industry standard for this fast-growing arena.”

The complex is expected to open sometime in 2019. Until then, Parx says it will create a temporary sportsbook in a former bar space.

Parx was one of the first casinos in the state to get a license.
