In an interesting piece of legislation, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) has clarified that it will not allow online gaming and sports betting inside casinos. Online gaming and sports betting will be soon available in the state. PGCB said geo-targeted software will be used to prohibit players from playing online poker, casino games or slots from within any land-based Pennsylvania casinos.

“The Gaming Control Board will put in place a system that, through the use of GPS software and IP Address identification, will block entry and play of Pennsylvania-licensed internet gaming if a user is outside of the state,” it was stated in a 2 page document from the PGCB. “In addition, participating in internet gaming when in a Pennsylvania casino will also be blocked.”

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC) has announced the revenue figures for September. MGM Springfield made an impressive start by posting US$27 million in revenue during September, its first full month of operation. The gaming venue was started in August 24. It has so far amassed US$18 million in GGR from slot machines and another US$8.8 million from table games.

The state tax share from the revenue is US$6.7 million, 25 per cent of the venue’s GGR.

The MGC explained that only casino revenues, and no other proceeds from the 14-acre casino complex’s hotel, restaurants, bars and other non-gambling entertainment, are considered for the report.

According to MGM Springfield president Michael Mathis, September visitor volume was “solid” and the casino’s financial performance is “on track” with company expectations.
