Pennsylvania Online Gaming

In April 2013, House Bill 1235 was introduced by Rep. Tina Davis to legalize online gambling in Pennsylvania. The legislation calls for the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board to regulate the licensing, operation, and responsible participation of Internet gambling. The bill calls for the proceeds from licensing and operation of Internet gaming in the state of Pennsylvania to be split between the Property Tax Relief Fund and the State Lottery Fund. Applicants for Internet gambling licenses in Pennsylvania would be limited to entities that hold an existing slot-machine license in the state. Included in the measure are online poker, other non-house-banked games, and traditional casino table games.

The bill, however, isn’t going anywhere. In June 2013, Rep. Tina Pickett, the chair of the Gaming Oversight Committee, voiced concern about bringing online gambling to the state of Pennsylvania. Pickett said she was worried both by how online gaming could impact brick-and-mortar casinos and the possibility of bringing more gambling to the state. Pickett indicated that Davis’s legislation won’t be taken up during this legislative session, which ends in 2014.
