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.
