Hollywood Casino Morgantown, the new Penn National Gaming casino near Chester County’s border with Berks County, is expected to open by the end of the year, writes Daniel Urie for Lehigh Valley Live.

The establishment is considered a mini-casino, which became legal in Pennsylvania in 2017.

Penn National planned to open the $111 million casino in Caernarvon Township off the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Interstate 176 before the end of 2020, but COVID-19-related issues delayed the construction.

The original plans for the casino in 2019 called for up to 750 slot machines, 30 table games, and a full sports betting lounge, along with a restaurant, entertainment lounge, and a food court. However, the delays have provided Penn National officials with more time to adjust these plans.

“We have utilized this additional time to reimagine our offerings at these properties and will have more information to share in the coming months,” said Penn National Gaming spokesperson Jeff Morris.
