Act 42 of 2017 authorises online gambling in Pennsylvania

By enacting Act 42 of 2017 at the end of October this year, Pennsylvania joined the small group of US states to have authorised online gambling. As well as facilitating an expansion of the State’s land-based sector, Act 42 authorises, regulates and taxes online fantasy sports contests, internet gaming websites and sports wagering activities, with the latter only effective in the event that US federal law changes to allow states to regulate sports wagering. Anthony R. Holtzman and Robert A. Lawton of K&L Gates examine in detail the provisions of Pennsylvania’s i-gaming statute, and comment on reactions to the Act so far.
