Sports betting already paying off for Pennsylvania-based casino company Tom Rader, WFMZ-TV · December 6, 2018 at 7:08 pm Horse race wagering enthusiast Joseph D’Amato says he’s pleasantly surprised by the arrival of sports betting at Wyomissing-based Penn National Gaming’s Hollywood Casino in East Hanover Township, Dauphin County. “I was here to bet the races and came down from upstairs and came where they usually have this,” D’Amato said. “Next thing I see, they have the boards. I knew as soon as I saw the boards set up, sports betting was here. I think everybody’s been waiting for it.” The wait is over as sports betting is here. It’s a brand new revenue stream for the casino industry and for the state. Casinos have to pay a $10 million fee to operate sports betting and the state takes more than 30 percent in taxes, well above what other states take.
