Live poker appears alive and well in Pennsylvania after the local industry posted some impressive live PA poker revenue numbers in July.
A bill that would legalize online poker games in Pennsylvania is moving back to the Senate this week and the hope is it will pass before the end of June.
The PA Senate will be moving ahead with legislation seeking to legalize and regulate online poker next week. The taxation rate is still up for discussion.
Penn National Gaming officials commented that if Pennsylvania lawmakers set online gambling taxes too high, the Pennsylvania casino industry will walk away.
Pennsylvania politicians have ignored revenue in the budget impasse, leaving hope for internet gambling, while one CEO is pessimistic on regulation in 2015.
