Pennsylvania Still Considering Online Gambling to Generate Revenue

Pennsylvania Still Considering Online Gambling to Generate Revenue Chairman of the Pennsylvania House Gaming Oversight Committee, Representative John Payne reassures the public that despite the cancellation of gambling related hearings in October online gambling is still a major topic that will be addressed by the committee.

Industry observers say that online gambling and possibly daily fantasy sports will be considered by lawmakers. The issue has been placed on the back burner as the state researches other means to tackle it $2 billion budget deficit without increasing taxes on residents. All the signs point to online gambling delivering the much needed revenue.

Representative Payne also said that he was working toward presenting gambling regulations as a package rather than individual bills, which observers say will be the priority.

  • If there are state run online gambling sites in the US, and more on the way, I wonder if they will allow non residents of these states to register and play. Will Europeans have access to online platfforms offered in the American States with legal online gambling? It might be interesting to play there as they might have very different software and variety is the spice of life.
  • I see this coming from miles away. So many other states have their own online gambling already and the people of Pennsylvania have been waiting a long time as so the rest of the country. I think that presenting the regulations as a package is a good idea if they can get it right the first time and it doesn't get picked apart, because if it does get picked apart it will take a long time to fix. Getting this online gambling going is still going to take awhile even if is a priority, maybe that $2 billion budget deficit will help speed things up.
