Pennsylvania Online Gambling Bill Delayed

Pennsylvania legislators have opted to delay a bill that would legalize online gambling within its borders, as the measure was left off the state's budget bill.

The budget was signed into law this week, but the online gambling draft was not on the final bill. The bill had previously passed easily through the House. The proposed bill would regulate online gambling in the Keystone state, implementing a 16% tax on revenues from operators as well as hefty licensing fees. It is thought that online gambling could generate roughly $300 million annually, which is roughly 10% of the value of the existing casno market.

The bill is likely to be addressed in the fall as a standalone bill.

Casino Listings will update this story as more developments arise.

When they have the chance to bring $300 million annually to the state budget I don't think that it would be any real doubts if the gambling bill would pass sooner or later
