MALVERN, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- Get ready to watch and wager! Sports and horse betting are coming to Chester County.

Parx Casino is teaming up with Chickie's & Pete's to bring the first sportsbook inside a restaurant in Pennsylvania.

Action News got a first look inside ahead of their grand opening in Malvern on February 9.

"This is the very first stand-alone restaurant and sports bar that has a race and sportsbook in it. So it's super exciting for our entire region and a great place for people to watch and wager and for people to have their Chickie's and Pete's favorites," said Carrie Nork Minelli, director of public relations for Parx Casino.



There will be four live customer tellers and four sports betting kiosks for placing wagers on pro and college sports.

The 600-square-foot sportsbook from Parx will sit adjacent to Chickie's and Pete's bar and dining rooms to allow access to real-time sports game viewing.

The freshly opened eatery is 8600 square feet, and the opening of this sportsbook and restaurant also brings dozens of new jobs to the area.
