Hollywood Gaming At Dayton Raceway To Open August 28 Bringing Top Flight Gaming, Entertainment And Economic Development To Dayton And The Miami Valley

Penn National Gaming, Inc. (NASDAQ:PENN) (“Penn National”) announced today that pending final regulatory approval, Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway will open its doors to the public on Thursday, Aug. 28, bringing top-flight gaming and entertainment and an economic boost to Dayton and the Miami Valley.

“We’re thrilled to be able to set our opening date for this new, state-of-the-art regional destination offering premier gaming, dining, racing and entertainment options,” said Tim Wilmott, President and Chief Executive Officer of Penn National Gaming. “Located in North Dayton and convenient to both I-75 and I-70, Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway will provide our guests with a range of memorable experiences in an exciting, high energy setting.

“In addition, we’re proud of the economic opportunities we’re bringing to Dayton and the Miami Valley,” Wilmott said. “With nearly 500 permanent employees, we’ll be a significant employer in the region. And we believe the facility can serve as a catalyst for additional economic development in the area.”

Gary DeWitt, General Manager of Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway, said, “We’re already in high gear and look forward to welcoming guests on August 28 with a unique gaming and entertainment experience for this region. The building itself is nearing completion, we’re continuing to build our team, and we anticipate big crowds when we open the doors.

“August 28 will also mark the culmination of a project that has enjoyed strong support from the community, from elected officials, from our business partners, from our construction team and from the hundreds of local construction workers and vendors who are building Hollywood Gaming. We’re deeply grateful for their efforts, which have been instrumental in bringing us to this point,” DeWitt said.

Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway will celebrate a second grand opening on Oct. 3, when harness racing begins on the new 5/8 th-mile all-weather racetrack.

The $250 million development is located at the intersection of Needmore and Wagner Ford roads in North Dayton. The gaming floor will open with 1,000 Video Lottery Terminals (VLTs) and a wide variety of dining and entertainment options for patrons. The adjacent racetrack grandstand includes more than 1,000 enclosed seats and a simulcast theater that will allow race fans to wager on races at tracks throughout North America.
