One inch away from having online poker regulated - Pennsylvania-USA

To date, only three States (New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware), have regalized and regulated online poker market in the USA. Recently, other States are actively working to embrace the same path. Include the likes of California and Pennsylvania with the expected adoption of online poker bill this year. Following a stormy debate about the matter in California, Pennsylvania also took another step forwards to discussing an i-poker proposal. This Thursday, lawmakers will discuss the HB 649, an online poker proposal backed by Rep. John Payne. HB 649 is actually one of the three separate bills that will pave Pennsylvania’s way for a regulated ipoker market.

With the impressive cash flow generated by this digital poker industry in the three States, Penn. legislators have just taken the right decision to follow this step. According to “the Poker Players Alliance’s John Pappas”, online poker regulation in Pennsylvania would generate societal and economic benefits. Once this freshly-submitted bill passed, poker players in Pennsylvania will access to a fully regulated poker market with enhanced players’ safety system. It is also worth noting that the HR 140 is passed this week by the Pennsylvania House Gaming Oversight Committee, a resolution introduced in March by Rep. John Payne that aimed at encouraging Congress to give the thumb down to the controversial RAWA (Restoration of America's Wire Act), and to that proposed by Sheldon Adelson, which would ban states from legalizing internet-based gambling.
