Parx Casino’s Mobile Betting Initiative
Greenwood Gaming & Entertainment is the parent company of Parx Casino. Based in Pennsylvania, the Parx brand has strong roots and ties to the state’s gaming industry. Previously known as Philadelphia Park, this famous horse racing venue is where the company got its start.
When casino gambling came to the Keystone State close to 20 years ago, Parx Casino and Racing opened in Bensalem. Working with Playtech, the evolution into online sports betting and iGaming is now complete.
The company chose these three states to add the iGaming component to the mobile sportsbook app. Playtech’s primary role in this partnership is to use its IMS platform to power the backend of the betPARX app.
This IMS platform is new to both the New Jersey and Pennsylvania online gaming industry. Playtech was working with betPARX and the Gun Lake Casino in Michigan. This partnership launched the Play Gun Lake online casino app.
The stated goal of this partnership is to offer a “simpler, faster and easier casino and sportsbook right in your pocket.”
The online casino offers everything from slots to digital table games and live-dealer gaming options. The online sportsbook has pre-game betting along with an extensive assortment of live in-game betting options.

Listed on the London Stock Exchange, Playtech is an established leader in the global gaming industry. The company employs more than 7,000 workers across 24 different countries around the world.
Parx Casino owns and operates the largest land-based casino in Pennsylvania. As part of this facility’s gaming options, there is a best-in-class retail sportsbook. Moving into the mobile sector of the industry, betPARX is now the casino’s leading online gaming brand.
The initial partnership between Playtech and Parx was formed in February of 2021. The primary goal was to develop and launch the betPARX betting app.
