Pennsylvania Might Legalize Online Gaming in the Long Run

30 October 2013

Pennsylvania local media reported earlier this week that chairman of the Gaming Control Board William Ryan recently expressed his opinion in regard to the legalization of online gambling in the American state. Ryan explained that despite the fact that three states are already running or setting up their internet gaming sites, Pennsylvania might not allow such activities in the near future.

 Instead, lawmakers want to see how neighboring states New Jersey and Delaware will benefit from opening their online casinos or what kind of financial or social losses they will be faced with. Additionally, Pennsylvania also wants to see how the land based casino industry in New Jersey will be affected by their online gaming sites. At this point in time, Pennsylvania is the second most profitable casino market in the US, with 12 casinos running in the state.

Ryan also expressed the idea that even though Pennsylvania will not open online casinos soon, the state is looking forward to expanding its gambling market by giving thousands of bars and parlors the possibility to offer small gambling games to their customers. In regard to this subject, lawmakers are currently drafting a bill which is said to move through the legislature soon.
