GLOBAL GAMING BUSINESS PODCAST: Jay Snowden, President & CEO, Penn Entertainment

Penn Entertainment, formerly Penn National Gaming, has been evolving as the new name might suggest. CEO Jay Snowden has a vision for his company to become an omnichannel giant, with its own technology and content, that complements the extensive network of land-based casinos across the U.S. He talks about the new shape of four casinos in three states, as well as the purchase of the remaining part of Barstool Sports that Penn did not own. He also talks about theScore in Canada and how it has helped Penn grab a big piece of market share in the largest market in Canada, Ontario. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at G2E in Las Vegas in October.
