Pennsylvania Continues to Push for Online Gambling
Up to now, several attempts were made in Pennsylvania for the legalization of the gambling industry, but no gaming bill has been passed yet. Recent reports reveal though that internet gaming proposals are starting to appeal to more regulators, meaning that a gambling legislation could be submitted sometimes next year, when operators could be allowed to create online casinos. Gaming insiders are now hoping that state representatives will start thinking about opening up to this proposal, especially since they against previous initiatives. Representative Tina Davis has already expressed her approval regarding the legalization of the industry.
A new bill which is currently circulating in Harrisburg presents a more relaxed taxation regime in comparison to the bill supported by Tina Davis. Our gaming insiders have information that the new bill has more chances of approval than the Davis bill. At this point in time, the clauses presented in the bill are still subject to negotiation. There is no doubt that the American online gaming industry is going to expand considerably during the next years, despite opposition from gambling moguls like Sheldon Adelson, who claimed that is completely against operators who seek to create online casinos. Pennsylvania regulators could also be waiting to see how New Jersey online casinos will influence the gaming industry in the state before taking any decision.
