Legal & Regulatory News

Pennsylvania's gambling regulator is now accepting licence applications from sports betting operators and suppliers.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) opened the process Wednesday (July 11th), accepting licence applications from sports wagering operators, manufacturers and suppliers.

Sports wagering operator licences will allow the holder to offer sports betting in-venue or via online and mobile channels, with licences restricted to the state's land-based casinos.

Sports wagering manufacturer licences are required for companies that build, programme or maintain devices or equipment, while sports wagering supplier licences will be required for companies offering ancillary services such as risk management or integrity services.
