State officials have given Parx Casino Shippensburg the green light, the casino’s general manager, Kevin Brady confirmed Wednesday night.
Pennsylvania’s 17th casino will open at 10 a.m. Thursday at 250 South Conestoga Drive in Shippensburg Township, Cumberland County. The casino had two testing days this week with the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. Brady said that the two days went well.
The casino will host a grand opening celebration on Feb. 3.
The centerpiece of the entire 73,000-square-foot facility is the electronic table games area. While the casino doesn’t have traditional tables, it has live dealers in the center of the gaming area surrounded by 48 machines, where patrons can play Blackjack, Roulette and 3-card poker, separately or all at the same time.
