Pennsylvania Introduces Bill to Legalize Online Gambling

Law, 2013-04-23, by TwoGun

With New Jersey recently legalizing online poker as well as the long anticipated opening of Nevada's online poker games, it was only a matter of time before other states began legalizing online poker too.

The tiny state of Delaware followed suit with legalizing online poker and we've heard rumors of California and even Iowa allowing online poker as well. Now, Pennsylvania becomes the latest state that may possibly enter the legal online poker fray.

The bill would also allow for other type's of casino games, not just poker.

For a business to provide online poker or other online casino games, it would need to be an established land based casino in the state, and users would register with the site by going to the casino. Third party providers could work with the casino to provide the software (so a casino may partner with say 888 Poker to provide games).

Pennsylvania is a fairly large state and currently has the second largest gaming market, recently overtaking New Jersey. If online poker is legalized there, it would be a huge step towards a general legalization effort in the United States.
