Parx casino launches sportsbook in Pennsylvania



Parx casino in Bensalem, Philadelphia, has launched its sportsbook. The Bensalem sportsbook will feature seven teller windows and 26 self-serve kiosks placed in the casino. The facility has a lounge area where sports betting will be conducted. Kambi will operate the sportsbook. Operations will be initially monitored by regulators.

Matthew Cullen, senior vice president of interactive gaming and sports, said that they’re still on the works for online and mobile betting operations. He added that football could boost operations significantly if local team Philadelphia Eagles win the next few games. “The market is insane for [the Eagles], as we’ve seen at the SugarHouse and at Rivers [in Pittsburgh] and in New Jersey,” Cullen said. “But even if they’re out, people are still gonna want to bet [on football]. But it would be great if they were playing.”
