The clash between supporters and opponents of online poker regulation - Pennsylvania

Online poker legalization has been an extremely hot topic in Pennsylvania these days. Recently, Bravo Group was hired to carry out an objective survey that would highlight the real views of Pennsylvania’s residents about the matter. On theory, it is a fabricated approach to respond to the Sheldon Adelson’s Las Vegas Sands Corporation anti-online gambling "push poll". The Caesars Entertainment Group has reportedly provided financial support to the group. Suprisingly enough, Bravo Group itself is among the supporters of online poker regulation in Pennsylvania.

The findings of Bravo Group actually see 769 registered voters, 66% of them turned thumb up on the passing of online gambling law. However, they emphasized that tax revenues from this initiative should be used to finance Penn’s educational programs. Besides, 58% of voters agreed on the need of a regulation that will grant operating licenses to gambling providers without stating where the generated tax revenue will be used. The finding also saw 80% of respondents asking legislators to establish an adequate system to prevent under-age people from wagering on the state-regulated gaming websites, while 52% would require, among other safety-related solutions, a barring access system for problem gamblers. While the poll conducted by Bravo Group is likely considered as an accurate summary of the true feelings of Pennsylvanians towards online poker regulation, Sheldon Adelson and his team have been actively working on its anti-online poker propaganda by sending emails to numbers of Penn residents, a representative at the Poker Players Alliance reported. Emails sent are said to highlight falsified findings. Pending the ultimate verdict, Pennsylvanian gamblers would keep hanging on offshore i-gambling websites.
