Since then, the casino has been moving swiftly with its plans to take full advantage of the opportunity that the interactive gaming market in the Keystone State. A great online casino operation requires some talent and Parx Casino has already begun nabbing itself the best talent that the state’s job market has to offer.

It all begin last Wednesday when the Parx Casino management announced that they had added a new member to their management team. Mathew Cullen, the new member who will be taking over the position of the Senior Vice-President of Interactive Gaming & Sports is going to oversee the operator’s efforts to bring online casino gaming and sports betting to the massive population of gambling enthusiasts in the state.

Second Pitch for Casino Gambling in the Carlisle Area

The Parx Casino operators have also recently stepped back to their plate in their uphill bid to develop a casino in the Carlisle area. They have made an official request to be placed on the South Middleton Township supervisors’ July 26 agenda – it is at the 6 p.m. meeting scheduled for this date that they hope to make a public presentation of their plans.

If everything goes well, this will mark the second time that Parx Casino is seeking permission in a municipality where elected the elected officials were not really for the idea of having casinos in their municipalities. Parx kicked this process off when they bought franchise rights to develop a casino within a 30-mile circle straddling Franklin and Cumberland counties in February.

Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment has filed a request with the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board for a two-month extension of the window it was given to file the licensing documents with the state regulators. If this goes through, the company will have until October to file its plans.
