New Parx Shippensburg Competition With Nearby Hollywood Casinos
Parx opened up its second Pennsylvania location on February 3. The new Parx Shippensburg is the 17th retail casino in the Keystone State and falls under the mini-casino category.
Aside from 73,000 square feet of gaming space hosting 500 slot machines and 48 electronic tables, Parx boasts additional amenities like a sportsbook, a 100-seat restaurant, and a full bar.
However, a new mini casino opens up in a part of PA with two Hollywood casinos within an hour of driving distance. The new Shippensburg venue has a positive reputation from Parx’s initial casino in Bensalem. Still, it will need to hit it out of the park to compete in the saturated market.
