Greenwood Gaming & Entertainment Inc, parent company of Parx Casino in Pennsylvania, along with online gambling software supplier Playtech, announced Wednesday the launch of the new betPARX app in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, combining mobile casino and sports betting experiences. Separately, the company has also obtained market access in Ohio ahead of sports betting launch next year.
The Playtech-powered app has allowed the company to operate in both states for the first time, offering "a simple, quick and easy platform to wager on all sports as well as play mobile centric casino games in both states”, the companies described.
The betPARX app features a wide array of exclusive and progressive slot games such as “Divine Fortune” and “Cleopatra”, and table games including Blackjack, Roulette and live dealer games. It offers over 50 Playtech titles, including five games from Playtech’s “Mega Fire Blaze”, a series of games developed by Playtech’s Rarestone Studio.

The initial partnership between Parx Casino and Playtech was first announced in February last year.
Furthermore, as sports wagering became legal in Ohio, expected to launch by February 2023, betPARX has partnered with the Memorial Tournament presented by Workday for mobile sports betting access in the state, and will also become an Official Betting Operator of the PGA TOUR.
Under the terms of the agreement, betPARX will become the exclusive mobile sports betting sponsor of the Memorial Tournament, which is held annually in the spring at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.
In addition, betPARX will become an Official Betting Operator of the PGA TOUR, thus acquiring the rights to use PGA TOUR marks, video highlights and other intellectual property on its sports wagering platform, among other benefits.
The 2022 Memorial Tournament presented by Workday will be held the week of May 30 - June 5 and will be broadcast on CBS, Golf Channel and PGA TOUR LIVE on ESPN+.
