PA Begins Applying for Sports Betting Licenses

In the race for states to begin offering legalized sports betting, Pennsylvania appears to be leading the charge.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board announced Thursday “that it has notified casino license holders that they can begin submission of petitions requesting approval to conduct sports wagering.”

The move comes just weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states can allow sports betting provided the proper framework and regulatory components are in place.

“The actions taken by the Board are the first in our efforts to launch sports wagering in Pennsylvania as soon as possible,” said PGCB Executive Director Kevin O’Toole. “In the coming months, we expect to regularly ask the Board for approval of additional temporary regulations that will move us toward a launch of this new gaming initiative.”

Online poker and casino games are allowed in Pennsylvania's 13 casinos.  Sports betting will be permitted with these establishments via apps on one's mobile devices.

Implementation is a different story with most experts believing that Pennsylvania residents probably will not be able to bet sports at their local casino until the earlier 2019.
