1/31/2018: More Applications, But No Launches

Posted on April 29, 2019 - Last Updated on May 3, 2019

The defining theme of the first few months of gambling expansion was paperwork. Each new vertical came with its own set of regulations, applications, and approvals. At the end of January, the application process for obtaining a video gambling terminal (VGT) license opened up. To date, none of these truck stop gambling machines have launched. The application process is still pending.

In early February, online gambling applications started appearing on the PA Gaming Control Board (PGCB) website. However, these were only for suppliers and manufacturers. Casinos did not begin applying to offer interactive gaming until April.
