Hollywood Casino Perryville Opens Barstool Restaurant Adjacent to Sportsbook

Hollywood Casino Perryville in Maryland opened on Sunday a Sportsbook Restaurant Bar Stoollocated next to its sports betting space. The casino held an inauguration ceremony, a VIP event and a meeting which featured former Baltimore Ravens tight end Todd Heap. Former Baltimore Ravens cornerback Duane Starks was also in attendance.

Perryville’s brand new restaurant is separate from its sports betting site, meaning it’s open to all ages. He understands more than 50 televisions broadcasting various sporting events worldwide. The remodeled restaurant is a rebrand and new iteration of the space that was once the Green Turtle Sports Bar & Grill.

“Come and get something to eat. Have a drink. We’ll have entertainment on the weekends… bands and DJs on Friday nights. So we are much more than just gambling”, said Amy Brennan, General Manager of Hollywood Casino Perryvilleas reported by Play USA.

Brennan further noted that betting and gambling-related activities were intentionally separated from the restaurant to maintain a family atmosphere. “There aren’t many dining options in the area so we’ve decided to separate gambling so you can bring your family and kids, as kids under 21 aren’t allowed in gambling venues,” Brennan said, as reported by the Cecile Whig.

“Anything to do with the small community we love here in Baltimore is awesome,” Heap said.. “It’s a great venue and I was thrilled to come here and see it and be part of its opening.”

Play through Barstool Sportsbook is still permitted for anyone 21 and over through the kiosks on the casino floor opposite the restaurant. Barstool Sportsbook also has a mobile app which offers a variety of sports and gambling services, although Mobile gambling is not yet legal in Maryland.

During the event, attendees received a free drink, free foodand the ability to focus on one of 50 screens displaying a variety of sports games from the comfort of their table.

“It will be one of the most fun, engaging and dynamic places to watch a game, anytime,” added Brennan. “It’s unlike anything offered locally in terms of entertainment, so come give us a shot.”

The restaurant concept is not new to Penn Entertainment, the parent company of the Hollywood Casino chain.. Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg in Indiana has a similar concept next to its sportsbook. However, the restaurant and sports betting there are more integrated than in Maryland.

Restaurant-sports betting combinations have become one of the most exciting developments in the Maryland sports betting industry.. On the casino side, Live! Casino & Hotel, MGM National Portand Horseshoe Casino have all announced that they plan to open renovated dining spaces that will complement their sports betting.

Off-track betting site and restaurant at Long Shot in Frederick County will open as a temporary sports betting site, then transition to a permanent site. So far, six facilities in the state have been approved for licensing and have opened.
