Monroe and Luzerne counties among the 8 chosen to go to green phase next week! Mount Airy and Mohegan Sun Pocono are located there respectively. So about 10-12 days possibility of re-opening them like CT.

Hollywood Casino in Grantville, PA will open on Friday with No Sportsbook or Poker Room. Dauphin county, where Grantville is located, will go into green phase that same day coincidentally.

Mohegan Sun Pocono Downs is scheduled to open on Monday the 22nd, also among the counties going to green phase on Friday.

Last one on the list is Mount Airy and they should more than likely re-open by next week as well!

Wind Creek Bethlehem opening up on Monday, will probably be quite a crowd there.

I've been to Mount Airy twice this week and it wasn't too crowded beyond the first day. $25 min. BJ tables with about 8 tables open. I was told there would be a waiting list for spots, but that fell apart pretty quickly when people on the list would just jump onto the first open chair.

The smoking was a bit overwhelming, but having a mask certainly helps with the smell. They were NOT taking temperatures or even a head count at the main entrance. I'm hoping that changes this weekend and/or next weekend with the crowd sure to pile in, but Mt. Airy is pretty well known for cutting corners and pinching pennies.

Not anymore, as of 5 pm yesterday, smoking is now prohibited in several PA casinos. I was there the minute the announcement was made and you could see the smokers faces go grey, literally!

Alcohol will no longer be served at tables, slots or bars in PA casinos until further notice. The dealers seemed happy about this, so they don't have to deal with casino drunks at the tables.

It will certainly affect patronage on weekends and nights, only the degens will show up and the old folks coming for their free toaster oven!
