PENNSYLVANIA INTERNET SPORTS BETTING TO START BEFORE JULY 15!

By Harry Allison

The first online Pennsylvania casinos will launch on July 15.

That was confirmed yesterday by PA Gaming Control Board Executive Director Kevin O’Toole.

PA online casinos will finally launch more than a year and a half after a law authorizing them came passed in the fall of 2017.

PA online sports betting does not have a definitive start date, but sources say the first sportsbook apps should launch well before the online casinos go live.

PA is moving ahead with online casinos, despite the fact that there is some wrangling over the federal legality of the activity.

There’s an active federal court case in New Hampshire about the Department of Justice opinion issued earlier this year that the federal Wire Act applies to all forms of interstate gaming.

That could seemingly include online gaming; even though it’s legal on an intrastate basis, there’s some worry that the nature of data and financial transactions could run afoul of the Wire Act.
