The Hollywood Casinos chain in Pennsylvania has just announced that live poker will see a comeback in their Granville venue.
The reintroduction of one of the most popular card games in the USA is planned to be rolled over at the beginning of this year’s second quarter.
The original poker tables were closed for an indefinite period because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Only recently was there a mention of their official reopening.
Tony Frabbiele, the VP and GM of Hollywood Casino chain, made this announcement on the 24th of January through a press conference. “We’re thrilled to be having live poker back. Lots of people wanted it, and we’re working to bring it back.”
The course of action will see the installation of several amount of poker tables at their Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Cours
The plan is still in its primary phases and as PENN Entertainment themselves clarified, they are still in the ongoing process of filing all the necessary paperwork to Pennsylvania’s Gaming Control Board (PGCB).
The new live poker tables
The only poker tables that were available post-pandemic were the RNG poker ones (ETGs). Now, the new live dealer poker will be situated next to the sportsbook, right at the casino’s entrance.
The tables will also be the most popular Poker Variant table – Texas Hold’em, hosting different cash prizes and suiting different bet ranges for different budgets. Frabbiele also comments that these games will be available Monday to Sunday for a fixed amount of hours. The hours will be extended in accordance to demand.
