Two Casinos Win Approval To Open Online Casinos In Pennsylvania


The state of Pennsylvania is attempting to open up as many online casino operations as they possibly can lately. They want to bring up the total number of casinos that are operating within their borders online to increase the amount of tax revenue that they can bring in. 

The two casinos in question are SugarHouse Casino and Penn National. Both casino operators are extremely thrilled to have the opportunity to lead people into the future of online gambling in Pennsylvania. 

The Pennsylvania Gaming Board granted the right to SugarHouse Casino to offer online games without a single person on the board having voted against the petition. The same held true when Penn National was the one who submitted their submission of a bid for a license as well. 

There are five other approved companies that can offer online gambling within Pennsylvania. These include Harrah's, Mount Airy, and Parx. Each of these has a storied history in Pennsylvania as land-based casinos and in some cases horse racing tracks as well (Parx). That is why they are essentially trusted by the government of Pennsylvania to offer online gambling to those who want to play the games. 

In total there are thirty-nine permits that are available in Pennsylvania and a total of thirty-two of these have already been claimed between thirteen different casinos. You see, each casino must look to claim separate licenses for games offered such as slot machines and poker. Thus, there are just seven total permits left to be distributed. 

It is not quite clear if the remaining casinos within the state will actually apply for and get those licenses. Thus, the gaming board has made the decision that it may sell the remaining licenses out to companies that operate outside of the state. 

The reality is that while everyone wants to see as many operators as possible, the state of Pennsylvania is happy to see that it has had as much success as it has already. They are even interested in seeing just how much they may be able to sell off those extra licenses for when it all comes down to it.
