Live! Casino made history in Pennsylvania over the summer of 2020 when it launched its online casino, Play! before the land-based venue. Now, it's finally time for the brick and mortar to join the scene, even if it is months later.
After years of setbacks, Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia has finally announced its grand opening date for January 19th, 2021.
For the first few weeks, only members of the Live! Rewards Club will be able to make reservations and visit the new casino, with doors opening to the public on February 11th, 2021.
Existing members can now sign up for one of the Preview Days at PhillyLiveRewards.
Anyone registering to attend a Preview Day will also be eligible to participate in a lucky square game at Live! Casino where a 2021 Lexus RC F Sport is the grand prize.
"We are beyond excited to go Live! in Philadelphia and bring this world-class gaming and entertainment destination to the heart of the Stadium District," said Joe Billhimer, Executive Vice President, Cordish Gaming Group. "What we have created here is unrivaled anywhere in the country. Sports fans, foodies, gaming enthusiasts, and anyone looking for a night of fun and excitement only has to make one stop to experience it all."
The property is 510,000 square feet, 12-stories, 208 rooms, and includes accommodation for gaming, numerous dining options, and special events.
Here's what you will find at Live! Casino Philadelphia:
There is also a large Event Center and easy access to parking for visitors.
One of the most anticipated features from Live! Casino Philadelphia's grand opening is the restaurant Sports & Social Philly.
This will serve as a sports restaurant and lounge featuring the FanDuel Sportsbook and Lounge. Here, visitors can come and watch different sports games as well as dine in.
There are over 20 televisions to show sports games, including a 52 foot LED display.
The Sports & Social Philly is one of the many new dining options opening in February to the public, but the only to include the FanDuel sportsbook.
Other restaurants and bars opening as part of Live! Casino include:
Live! Casino has been under construction for three years, and because of the COVID-19 pandemic, took some serious hits over the last year (2020).
This delayed opening the brick and mortar, but only sped up the launch of its online casino, PlayLive!
It was a first in casino history in Pennsylvania where an online casino was up and running before the brick and mortar had even finished construction.
Players have been able to sign up for PlayLive! online casino since August, and have access to a library of over 100 games.
Online casino users are also eligible to become members of the Live! Casino Rewards program and receives rewards to use at the new casino & hotel.
