Delaware North’s Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack and Mardi Gras Casino did not accept any wagers again last month as its sportsbooks remained closed. Neither casino has processed any sports bets since early March. However, both the Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack and Mardi Gras Casino paid out on a number of bets placed prior to the split, leaving them with minor losses for the month.

SugarHouse casino is going to change its name as Rivers Casino Philadelphia. Greg Carlin, CEO of the casino’s parent company Rush Street Gaming said it was a corporate decision, to unify all their casinos under the same name.

“This is something we’ve been thinking about for quite a while. I think we are at the point in our company’s history where it makes sense to have a unified brand. All our properties and markets, especially with the advent of online gaming, we think it makes a lot of sense,” Greg Carlin said.

Carlin said the change will not happen overnight because they have a great deal more work to do.

“We’re going to buy all new chips, change all the signage, all the shirts, all of the business cards — it’s a long list of things that need to be swapped out. Not only that we’re upgrading the property, but we’re also going to add a state of the art sports book. We’re redoing one of the restaurants. We’re re-carpeting the original casino floor. We’re changing the decorations, we don’t want this just to be a name change, we’re really changing the property as well,” Carlin added.
