When will Pennsylvania casino poker rooms reopen? Two just did, with more to come amid changing industry Jon Harris, The Morning Call · October 16, 2020 at 3:35 pm As Pennsylvania’s casinos reopened in June and July, poker rooms stayed quiet, not authorized to operate under protocols issued by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board because of the game’s constant handling of cards and chips. The cards, and the chips, are back on the table now. Mount Airy Casino Resort in Monroe County and Mohegan Sun Pocono in Luzerne County reopened their poker rooms at noon Friday, the state’s first two physical poker rooms to reopen. Penn National Gaming plans to reopen the poker room at Meadows Racetrack & Casino in western Pennsylvania next Friday but doesn’t yet have a date for its Hollywood Casino in Dauphin County, said Jeff Morris, the company’s vice president of public affairs and government relations.
