Athena Security Gains Approval from PGCB to Help Protect the State’s Casinos


Athena Security, a world-wide Weapons Detection System provider, has received approval from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) to sell weapons detection systems to casinos in Pennsylvania.

The State of Pennsylvania is home to more than 14 different Licensed casinos with record breaking revenue of $4.873 billion in 2021 and over 1 billion in Internet gambling revenue. By the end of last year, Pennsylvania grew that number to 18 internet casinos and 13 online sportsbooks operating in the state.

Athena Security is on a mission to help all Pennsylvania casinos to secure their entryways for their guests and staff. Athena Security just launched their new entry solution that scans people for weapons, temperature, and identifies persons of interest without requiring anyone to stop and sort through their belongings.

“Getting approval from the Pennsylvania gaming commission to provide our weapons detection system to casinos is a big step for the local communities to feel more safe while enjoying these local gaming locations,” Michael Green, CEO and co-founder of Athena Security, said.
