Sports betting will be available at Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack in Chester beginning today, Jan. 22, at 2 PM, just in time for the Super Bowl, writes Andrew Maykuth for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The new sportsbook will be the fourth outlet in the Philadelphia area where people can legally wager on sports. The venue – named “The Book” – is also only the sixth in the state after sports betting was legalized last year.

The Book is situated in a 4,322-square-foot performance venue at the back of the casino floor. It’s equipped with 19 lounge seats, 11 high-top tables, bar seating, and more than 45 large screen televisions.

The Harrah’s sportsbook will first undergo a two-day testing period overseen by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, with the official launch set for noon on Thursday.
