Pennsylvania Senator Planning Online Poker Legalisation Bill
This Tuesday the 3rd of June, the Pennsylvania government will be meeting to discuss the new SB1386 Bill, which aims to legalise internet gambling in the state of Pennsylvania.
If the bill gets passed, then the existing licensed land based casinos in Pennsylvania will be able to apply for an online gambling license. Licensing fees will cost land based casinos $5 Million and they will also have to pay 15% tax on their gross revenue.
The bill was put forward by Senator Edwin Erickson, who believes that it will be successfully passed in the next couple of weeks. However, it is rumoured that another Bill is also currently in the pipeline that will legalise online poker in Pennsylvania.
We will keep you updated.
