Penn National hopes to build casino in Morgantown


Penn National Gaming Inc. has its sights set on Morgantown for a new casino.

The company filed an application with the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board to build a $111 million, 80,000-square-foot satellite casino on 36 acres of land near the intersection of the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Interstate 176, which connects with Route 422 near Reading, The Inquirer Daily News says.

Penn National says plans for Hollywood Casino Morgantown, in Caernarvon Township, Berks County, call for 750 slot machines, 30 table games plus a sportsbook.

If the casino application is approved by regulators, its closest competition would be Valley Forge Casino Resort, which was acquired in September by Boyd Gaming Corp.
