Pa. Gaming Control Board to accept interactive gaming petitions

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board says it will allow licensed Pennsylvania casinos to petition the board for an "Interactive Gaming Certificate." 

Petitions will be accepted beginning April 16 for a period of 120 days. 

If casinos are approved for a certificate, they may be authorized to offer interactive gaming in: 

  • peer-to-peer interactive games
  • non peer-to-peer where players compete with the dealer's hand
  • non peer-to-peer which simulate slot machines

The Gaming Control Board says only existing Pennsylvania casinos can petition to offer all three categorizes, but at an authorization fee of $10 million during the first 90 days. 

From day 91 to 120, state casinos can petition to offer one or more categories, at a price of $4 million per category.
