ONLINE POKER IN PENNSYLVANIA

Pennsylvanians tend not to be terribly spoilt for choice when it comes to playing online poker. In accordance with US government policy, the recent years have seen a marked decrease in the amount of poker rooms accepting online players from all corners of the globe. Moreover some of the big names in online poker such as Full Tilt are falling at the first hurdle in an effort to offer online poker to Pennsylvanians; these hurdles have increased in number following the events of Black Friday.

LEGAL ONLINE POKER ROOMS IN PENNSYLVANIA

The legalities of online poker in Pennsylvania are not as black and white as most people might like to think. However what is black and white is the fact that the vast majority of online poker rooms will simply not accept players from Pennsylvania and never have. It is worth pointing out here that there are still a few reputable sites that will accept online poker players. These players do well to remember that no single player has ever been prosecuted for playing online in the US, it is entirely the responsibility of the host company.

ONLINE POKER SITES ACCEPTING PENNSYLVANIANS

Present legal policies for online gaming make everything relating to online poker in Pennsylvania rather perplexing. It is a well-known fact in the gambling community that the US receives not a dime in taxes from online gaming businesses and so there is an automatic shut-down in their usage. However, state-by-state policy for online poker sites accepting USA players is certainly on the horizon and the ability to play against other players will be limited to within states. What is also certain is that the profits from the online gaming will be heavily taxed but that there is enough demand in Pennsylvania for online poker, to make this worthwhile and viable.

Pennsylvanian poker players will finally be able to sign up online in 2012/2013.
