Mount Airy Casino Resort was built on the site of the former Mount Airy Lodge and first opened in October 2007. The owner, Louis DeNaples, was later charged with perjury due to suspected ties with organized crime figures. He turned ownership of the casino resort over to his daughter and avoided prosecution.[7]

On March 29, 2019, Mount Airy Casino Resort applied for a sports betting license.[8] The Fox Bet online sportsbook was launched on September 4, 2019.[9] On September 9, 2019, Mount Airy Casino Resort held a soft launch for its retail sportsbook, with a two-day testing period; the full launch occurred on September 11, 2019. The 7,000-square-foot (650 m2) sportsbook at the casino is located next to the poker room and has teller windows, four self-betting kiosks, and several televisions.[10]
