Local casi­nos re­main mum on in­tent for on­line gam­ing

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - - Local news - By Gary Rot­stein

Three casi­nos in east­ern Penn­syl­va­nia have be­come the first to ap­ply for $10 mil­lion state li­censes to put their full range of gam­bling op­tions on­line, and it will soon be clear whether Rivers Casino and Mead­ows Race­track & Casino in this re­gion will do like­wise.

Mon­day is the dead­line for the state’s 13 casi­nos to seek the bun­dled li­cense al­low­ing them to pro­vide web-based slot ma­chine play, ta­ble games and poker, all made pos­si­ble un­der Penn­syl­va­nia’s wide-rang­ing 2017 gam­bling ex­pan­sion law. Penn­syl­va­nia will be one of just a few states in which gam­blers can create on­line ac­counts and legally play the same games as in a casino — only from home, work or any­where else within
