Pennsylvania Positions for Online Gambling Reality

In the USA there are only three jurisdictions where if you are within them you can go online and play poker in Nevada or play other casino style games in Delaware and New Jersey for real money. While the Federal government is in the process of debating the legality of online gambling for real money there are states considering the introduction of online gambling legislation.

Most of the motivation for introducing online betting is financial for states that are suffering declining revenues and enlarged deficits. It has been suggested that the state of Pennsylvania is the most likely to bring online wagering to the public next. Positioning to be ready for the possibility of sanctioned internet wagering in Pennsylvania is land-based Parx Casino which recently launched an online gaming site as a simulated option on the Casino website.

The Parx Casino which is owned by Greenwood Racing has announced work on a new partnership with the GameAccount Network to optimize the online simulation site. Projected to go live in this year's fourth quarter, GameAccount will be the software provider for the web location. There are other land-based casinos that have signed up for GameAccount’s Simulated Gaming product including Connecticut’s Foxwoods Resort Casino, New York’s Empire City Casino, and Oklahoma’s Osage Casino.

John Dixon Greenwood Entertainment and Racing`s CTO explained that this model of simulated gaming integrated with a casino management system has been operating successfully leading up to online gambling regulation in New Jersey state.

“Parx Casino will have the opportunity to launch simulated gaming nationwide before year’s end and be well prepared in the event regulation of real-money internet gaming emerges in the state of Pennsylvania.”

Parx Casino is currently a state gambling market leader, with a thirty percent share of the state`s offerings operating upwards of 3,200 slot machines and 150 table games.
