Penn National Names GM for Hollywood Perryville

Penn National Gaming has exercised its first management move following its acquisition of the operations of Hollywood Casino Perryville in Maryland, naming Brazilian Allie Evangelista as the property’s general manager.

Evangelista most recently served as GM at the company’s Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course in Ohio. Matt Heiskell, current general manager of Hollywood Casino Perryville, will now oversee operations at the company’s Hollywood Casino Tunica and 1st Jackpot Casino in Mississippi.

The company announced that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of the operations of Hollywood Casino Perryville in Maryland. In December 2020, Penn National entered into a definitive agreement with Gaming and Leisure Properties, Inc. (GLPI) to acquire the operations of Hollywood Casino Perryville for $31.1 million in cash.
