An online gaming draft law was presented to the Assembly Tuesday - Pennsylvania

Online poker game legalization in Pennsylvania has just reached a big step forward. An online poker bill has just been introduced to the Legislature, under the sponsorship of lawmakers Edwin Erickson and Bob Mensch. This new step succeeds that of last week in which gaming operators and representatives in the State had discussed at a hearing entitled “The Current Condition and Future Viability of Casino Gaming in Pennsylvania”. Thanks to developments in technology, online poker legalization paves the way for land-based casinos to enhance their gaming services. May we remind you that Pennsylvania is one of the top casino markets in the United States. According to a report released by “Pennsylvania Legislative Budget and Finance Committee”, which is the outcome of a study focused on gambling landscape in the State, this new market will generate annual revenue totaling $ 129 million in value.

If the bill is enacted by the Parliament, the new legislation will provide Pennsylvania a new gambling market where people can participate in interactive poker, both with other gamblers within the State and with other ones from cooperating foreign countries. Nevertheless, it could be disadvantageous to other online poker rooms which have been struggling with the poker community in the State. Despite all this, the recent purchase of Rational Group by Amaya Gaming for $ 4.9 billion is expected to improve PokerStars’ atmosphere. This transaction could actually highlight the re-entry of this famous online poker site in the US market, following its December 2013’s misadventure in Atlantic City.
