Pa. Casino To Launch Free-Play Poker Site
Mohegan Sun At Pocono Downs Looking At Online Poker
A Pennsylvania casino is set to become the first one in the state to offer free-play poker on the Internet, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported late last week.
Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, located in Wilkes-Barre, reportedly will run online poker with the software of Nevada-based Bally Technologies. Games will begin in early 2013.
Real-money online gambling is not legal in Pennsylvania. Only Nevada and Delaware have authorized traditional online gambling.
The idea behind a free-play site is to increase visitation to the brick-and-mortar while building a brand for a possible world of real-money deposits. While real-money play would have to be done intrastate, at least for now, a free-play site could be offered to anyone in the country.
Like Pennsylvania, Connecticut has its own Mohegan Sun casino.
