    Default The Next Likely States

    I don't really keep up with all the state government shenanigans that eventually leads to states opening up for licensed sites. With Nevada and New Jersey actually done and serving games now what, if any, are the next states that could be close as well?

    OPR News on PA, Chris wrote that in Dec of last year and that's about where PA stands until May. I can't tell you how excited I am that it could be a reality as I am a PA resident myself. Percentage wise, I'm not sure how likely it is, but the state's Gaming Control Board is known for their notorious greed and the budget shortfall should also help. Pennsylvania leads the country in land based casino taxes, so they will be apt to protect their interests and tax the shit out of the commonwealth in the process. I'll be interested to see how things develop.

    I was told at LAC that a bill is going to be introduced in the first week of May, and that with any luck there is a chance that the state could go live by the end of the year. Of course when it comes to governments, who knows what could happen. Pennsylvania would be very exciting though, especially since it borders New Jersey. It would make perfect sense to compact players and share liquidity.

    Make some more gambling legal with a trade-off off that illegal gambling is criminalized carrying a fine of $300 and up to 90 days for first offense, $2500 and up to 1 year for second. Sounds exciting to me. I mean being libertarian only goes so far, fuck it right?

    Lol, you're assuming that will be the penalty for unregulated sites, but regardless it would be unenforceable anyway. As a libertarian, I don't think the government should be regulating anything, and I would love to go back to the pre-UIGEA market we once had but that's not the reality. There are forces looking to outlaw and criminalize online gambling, (Adelson and cronies) so I think regulation is the best option.

    That's a proposed penalty for a player engaging in non-licensed gambling; criminalizing it on the player side.
