Pennsylvania Internet Gaming Bill To Be Introduced In House Of Representatives Next Week
Some Want State To Keep Pace With New Jersey And Delaware
A bill in Pennsylvania that would legalize Internet poker will be introduced next week, a person in the office of the bill’s co-sponsor told Card Player on Wednesday.
In January, Rep. Tina Davis, a Democrat, released a memo that stated she would soon be pushing an online gaming proposal. She specifically mentioned moves by New Jersey and Delaware to bring casino games to cyberspace. Pennsylvania recently overtook New Jersey as the second most lucrative gambling market in the country.
Davis wrote that her legislation would set license application fees at $16.7 million and would establish a “reasonable tax rate.”
Pennsylvania has 12.7 million people, and if it legalizes web poker, among other games, would have the largest intrastate player pool to work with between Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware.
