MOUNT POCONO, PA – Mount Airy Casino Resort is pleased to announce that this week marks 16 years of welcoming guests to its premier luxury property in the heart of the Pocono Mountains.

As Pennsylvania’s very first stand-alone casino, Mount Airy has reigned as a leader in the gaming and hospitality industry since opening its doors in October of 2007, winning numerous local, regional and national awards of excellence.

For starters, Mount Airy was the first casino resort to earn a prestigious Four-Diamond rating by AAA. The luxury Pocono property has maintained this coveted designation every year since, a testament to the extensive amenities, luxury accommodations and unparalleled service Mount Airy Casino Resort continues to provide guests year after year.

In the past year alone, Mount Airy placed fifth on USA TODAY’s Top 10 Readers’ choice award for Best Casino Hotel in the country, the only Pennsylvania casino resort to make the esteemed Top 10 list. Mount Airy also captured a total of 26 wins in Casino Player Magazine’s 2023 “Best of Gaming” awards. The accolades include eight first-place honors, 13 second-place wins, and five third place mentions.

“A shared commitment to excellence allows us to earn prestigious awards such as these and every employee has played an important role in our success,” said Lisa DeNaples, Mount Airy Casino Resort owner and managing trustee. “Words cannot express how much I appreciate the dedicated and loyal members of the Mount Airy Team.”

Committed to hiring a diverse workforce, Mount Airy Casino Resort employs close to 900 people and is one of the largest private employers in Monroe County.

While offering its employees good-paying jobs with solid benefits, Mount Airy positively impacts the community far beyond its walls. Since opening, Mount Airy has generated close to $3 billion in gross revenue, resulting in $1.5 billion in taxes, fees and other contributions returned to the Commonwealth and local communities.

In addition, Mount Airy has generated more than $2 billion in economic activity in the surrounding area, serving as an economic engine that creates jobs, boosts small businesses, and provides tax revenues that positively affect the community.

As Pennsylvania’s only family-owned casino resort, helping those in need represents Mount Airy’s dedication to regional nonprofits and its commitment to serving as responsible community stewards.

In the last five years, Mount Airy has donated more than $1 million in cash grants, in-kind donations and community event sponsorships to charitable organizations that provide crucial services to the residents of Northeast Pennsylvania and the Poconos.

“Giving back to the community has always been important at Mount Airy Casino Resort,” said Ben Koff, Mount Airy General Manager and COO. “Our neighbors have supported us over the past 16 years, and we believe in supporting them.”
