Pennsylvania Online Gambling Meetings Continue

Pennsylvania's House Gaming Oversight Committee continues to present information on the potential of legalization in the state during its second hearing of the week held at Mount Airey Casino Resort.

Three hearings were scheduled for the week including the first at the Legislature, the second at Mount Airey Casino and a third scheduled for Wednesday at the Mohegan Sun Pocono.

The Mount Airey hearing involved testimony from David Licht, of 888's All-American Poker Network. The company has already secured an online gambling partnership with Mount Airey to be ready for legalization.

“Unregulated online gaming is going on in front of us right now,” Licht said. “The issue is not will we legalize it, it is will we protect customers and derive revenue from it.”

He also reassured committee members that the AAPN has not faced challenges in excluding vulnerable and underaged gamblers, fraud prevention or money laundering with the use of technology.

The discussion continues on Wednesday.

    I think it's just matter of time when most of the US states will legalize the online gambling. Well it can be a long process who could continue for years ahead but it will happen sooner or later. Probably Pennsylvania will be the next state who will legalize it, this is an irreversible process.

    I loved hearing someone say that out loud, "Unregulated online gaming is going on in front of us right now,” “The issue is not will we legalize it, it is will we protect customers and derive revenue from it.” But, were they listening, probably not. Even if they only heard that last part about deriving revenue from it. Wouldn't you think that they would have jumped on that! I don't know what is the problem with these politicians. They are in politics, they have to be elected and reelected, so you can't tell me that they don't like to gamble.....................
