Populous Pennsylvania is poised to become the fourth U.S. state with legalized internet gaming after the state's legislature approved a bill in 2017 authorizing established casinos to apply for licenses for online slots, table and poker games, plus online sports betting.

Tempering industry optimism, however, are the 54 percent tax rate set to be applied to online slots – by far the predominant segment of the internet gaming market in neighboring New Jersey - and 36 percent rate for internet sports wagering.
