About the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board:

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is tasked to oversee all aspects of the state’s casino industry, along with oversight of new gaming initiatives created through amendments to the Race Horse Development and Gaming Act recently approved by the signing of Act 42 of 2017. To date, the PGCB regulates the play within the Commonwealth of Fantasy Sports Contests along with one casino operator offering Sports Wagering. Additional new gaming initiatives are expected to launch in the coming months.

The Commonwealth’s casino industry currently consists of 10 stand-alone and racetrack casinos in operation, along with the two smaller resort casinos.  These facilities collectively employ 17,000 people and annually generate approximately $1.4 billion in tax revenue from slot machine and table games play. The largest portion of that money is used for property tax reduction to all Pennsylvania homeowners.

New Hampshire Passes Sports Betting Bill
Reading Time: 1 minute

 

The House of Representatives of New Hampshire has approved House Bill 480, which would legalise sports betting in the state. The bill will be sent to the Senate for further discussion.

The bill was passed in a 269–82 vote, with an amendment to the original proposal. The House decided that the bill needed work before allowing the arrival of sports betting in New Hampshire. Lawmakers set a limit of 10 retail sportsbooks in the state and the establishment of a council for responsible gambling. Furthermore, they clarified the prohibited events where sports betting would not be allowed. Collegiate sports events within the state, high school sports and amateur contests involving minors will be banned.

“We’re not creating a new industry here, we’re just bringing an illicit industry into a legalized industry,” Rep. Timothy Lang said. “If the bill passes, they’ll seek town approval to offer sports betting there. That’d be the kind of place you can go to sit and watch a game and place a bet,” he added.
