Pennsylvania collects 1st $1 million under new gambling law

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Cash is already rolling into Pennsylvania's coffers as a result of a sprawling, two-day-old gambling expansion law.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board said Wednesday that Valley Forge Casino Resort in Montgomery County has paid a $1 million fee to allow gambling by people who aren't taking part in other amenities there.

The provision allowed the payment by the state's two licensed resort casinos to be relieved of requirements in the original 2004 casino law that gamblers also must take part in other amenities at an establishment or be guests there.

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf signed the bill on Monday, and the effect is immediate.

Valley Forge Casino said on its website it's open to the public at no cost.
