The launch is subject to Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board approval which is expected to follow testing dates set for Tuesday, March 12 and Wednesday, March 13, 5:00pm to 9:00pm. Both testing dates are open to the public. In preparation for the ultimate game day activities, the facility was renovated and over 100 new televisions were added.
Valley Forge Casino Resort is launching FanDuel Sportsbook today (March 14) as well, joining Parx Casino, which debuted its sportsbook in January, according to playpennsylvania.com.
“Greenwood Racing, Inc. is thrilled to launch sports betting in the heart of Montgomery County at Valley Forge Race & Sportsbook,” said Matthew Cullen, Senior VP of Interactive Gaming and Sports.
“We now offer sports betting and ultimate sports viewing in three different counties – and we aren’t done yet. While sports betting is open at Parx Casino® in a temporary sportsbook, stay tuned for information about the permanent $10M sportsbook to debut in the summer. Parx plans to continue to be an industry leader with this game-changing new facility.”
