A Brief History and Overview of Parx Casino
Parx Casino has been a leader in gambling since 1974. The casino started out as Keystone Racetrack and was sold to another developer in 1990. At this time, the racetrack became Philadelphia Park. While Parx Racing is a household brand name, it’s not uncommon to hear people from the area still refer to it as Philadelphia Park. Over the years Parx Racing has made many developments of its own. Automated betting kiosks and a feature called Phonebet have made it even easier to take advantage of the racetrack’s offerings. Parx Casino was a huge development as a result of Act 71; the legalization of land-based gambling in Pennsylvania. Since its inception, the casino has boasted the highest return to player rates in the state and is the largest gambling complex in Pennsylvania. The casino and racetrack are conveniently located about 20 minutes north of Philadelphia and is also easily accessible from local suburbs. There are also affiliated locations where guests can place sports bets and thoroughbred horse racing bets. These locations include:
- Oaks Race & Sportsbook
- South Philadelphia Race & Sportsbook
- Valley Forge Race & Sportsbook
- Sportsbook at Parx Casino and Parx East
