  History

The company traces it roots Penn National Race Course which opened in 1972 in the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania suburb of Grantville, Pennsylvania.[2]

The company was incorporated as PNRC Corp. in 1982 and changed its name to Penn National Gaming, Inc. in 1994.

Since 1996 its CEO has been Peter Carlino (born 1946).

In 2003, Penn National bought Hollywood Casino Corp. for $328 million plus $360 million in assumed debt, gaining casinos in Aurora, Illinois, Tunica, Mississippi, and Shreveport, Louisiana.[3]

In 2005, Penn National acquired Argosy Gaming Company for $2.2 billion making it at the time the third largest publicly held gaming company in the country[4] (behind MGM-Mirage Inc. and Harrah's Entertainment Inc.).

In November 2006 Penn National Gaming failed in an attempt to acquire Harrah's Entertainment. [1] The deal to purchase Harrah's fell through, and Harrah's was eventually taken over by two private equity firms.

In 2007 it acquired Zia Park & Black Gold Casino in Hobbs, New Mexico for $200 million. The assets are primarily the Zia Park Racetrack and its Black Gold Casino on approximately 320 acres (1.3 km2) of land located in Hobbs, New Mexico.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
