This story was published more than 1 year ago.

This week the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board announced that they've unanimously voted to approve of the renewal of the gaming license of operator Mount Airy #1, the company that runs Mount Airy Casino Resort.

The license will be good for a further five years, and the approval came during a public hearing in Paradise Township, which is where the casino resides. The regulator spoke with different gambling-related boards in Pennsylvania to discuss Mount Airy's performance. These groups included the Office of Enforcement Counsel, Bureau of Investigations and Enforcement, Office of Compulsive and Problem Gaming, and Bureau of Casino Compliance.

Mount Airy Casino Resort has been open since 2007 and during that time has generated $2.98 billion in tax revenues and has paid $1.33 billion in taxes to the state. The location employs 861 people and operates a 284-room hotel. It features 1,632 slot machines, 84 table games, a full FoxBet sportsbook, and also offers online betting to customers.
