Online gambling at casinos in Pennsylvania was launched on July 15. Apart from Pennsylvania only three other US states including Delaware, Nevada and New Jersey currently offer online gambling.
Prior to the launch of online gambling, Pennsylvania casinos also filed a lawsuit against iLottery operators alleging that the lottery games resemble slot-style online casino games.
However, the court rejected the appeal of Pennsylvania casinos and said that the ilottery operations are in line with the existing regulations and license agreement.
