The Valley Forge Casino Resort of Pennsylvania earned a renewal of their Category 3 resort casino operating license after the state Gaming Control Board voted unanimously in approval. The Board, consisting of seven members, came to the agreement that the parent company of the casino, Valley Forge Convention Center Partners, LP had met all obligations under the initial casino operator license qualifications.

The casino has now earned licensing for a three year period. The decision of the renewal was based on a process conducted by the Board that sees information from the public as well as the operator of the casino. Earlier in the year, a hearing was held for public input on the casino at the Upper Merion Township Building. During the hearing, personnel of the casino testified and submitted exhibits of the operation since the casino first opened in November 2011. Individuals in the community could also testify of the impact of the casino in the community.

Since the casino first opened, $342 million has been generated in gross revenues based on slots and table game play. The casino was able to provide about $140 million in tax revenue. As of now, the casino is home to fifty table games and six hundred slot machines.
