Customers at Penn National Gaming’s Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg, Indiana, could be making their first sporting wagers on September 1, subject to required regulatory approvals.
A new sports book at the site will be conveniently located inside of the Hops House 99 sports bar, which will include a wagering counter with ticket writer stations as well as dozens of new televisions for customers to watch and wager on sporting events taking place across the country and around the world.
Kiosks will be available throughout the facility to support thousands of sports betting options for patrons.
CEO Timothy J Wilmott remarked: “Penn National is excited to soon begin offering sports wagering for our customers in Southeast Indiana. The enthusiasm around sports betting has been growing since the federal ban was repealed last year, and we look forward to providing our patrons with another great amenity to enjoy at our facility.”
While September 1 is slated for the opening date, the official launch is scheduled for September 7 with Cincinnati legends Anthony Munoz and Tony Perez set to participate in a ceremonial ribbon cutting.
“Our customers can’t wait to begin wagering on sports,” said Ryan Coppola, Assistant General Manager at Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg. “This region is a hotbed of both professional sports and college athletics, and we hope to become a destination for fans from Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky.”
