FanDuel Sportsbook, after experiencing success with what has become New Jersey's top sportsbook located at the Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford, NJ, announced it's expanding to a second location at the Valley Forge Casino Resort in King of Prussia, PA.
The location, in the suburbs of Philadelphia, was decided after reaching an agreement with Boyd Gaming and is set to open its doors today.
Former Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek will make the ceremonial first bet at the new location. He is currently fielding advice from fans for what his first bet should be.
“Opening the FanDuel Sportsbook at Valley Forge Casino Resort is the start of FanDuel Group’s retail sports betting expansion in partnership with Boyd Gaming,” said Matt King, CEO, FanDuel Group. “Our experience operating the top sportsbook in New Jersey at the Meadowlands Racetrack will serve us well as we enter Philadelphia and compete for customers in an area with some of the most passionate and knowledgeable sports fans.”
The second brick-and-mortar location boasts seven teller windows, 29 video displays (televisions and odds screens), two sports tickers and seating for more than 30 people.
The sportsbook will accept bets on all major U.S. sports including professional baseball, basketball, soccer, football, golf, boxing and collegiate football and basketball.
