Since it received the green light on Thursday morning, the facility’s operator said it would begin taking bets on Friday, October 28.

The Greenmount OTB has a partnership with Parx Casino Philadelphia allowing the facility to use MD mobile sports betting software, odds and back-end operations developed by Parx.

Greenmount is an alliance between two local small business owners, Chris Richards, owner of Greenmount Station Restaurant, and David Richardson, owner of Greenmount Bowl.
