Gambling Laws and How they affect
Land Based Casinos
Legal factor has always been an important aspect
of life, since time immemorial and this facet has
had its share of impact in the world of gambling and
casino gaming as well. Especially, for the land based
casinos, the gambling laws have had a strong impact
in deciding how they are going to function and changes
in the laws, time and again have paved the path for
the changes in land based casino setups and their
In Pennsylvania, players have indulged in playing
Poker, in both the race tracks and the casinos as
well. However, the law of the state doesn't really;
endorse social gambling on very positive notes.
While majority states have already banned gambling
that involves rakes or the chances for the players
to make profits, Pennsylvania, hasn't yet taken a
stronger or impacting stand regarding its take on
this issue. Though gambling for charity is allowed,
but here also prior approval from the state is required.
Going with internet gambling, the subject itself
is invisible to the state law and no decisions are
made yet about this facet of gambling and casino games.
Even the State Lottery Commission of Pennsylvania,
way back in 2010, showed that it doesn't support online
poker games as it's pulling down the sales for this
particular segment. If people are buying lottery tickets
online, then this will have an adverse impact on the
land based lottery selling locations across the state.
This was the only instance, where the state law and
the authorities addressed the poker regulations online.
At present, nothing can be said about Pennsylvania's
stand regarding legalizing or banning social gambling.
However, the fun part is that sitting in Pennsylvania
you can join numerous offshore online casinos and
poker rooms to earn big and make a decent living.
On the other hand, the chances of the New Jersey
online gambling laws affecting the offline land based
local casinos cannot be negated completely. The law
is presently shelved as the authorities are worried
about the effect this law will have on the local and
land based casinos. The state is apprehensive about
games or online gambling as this might have
a negative effect on people having families and kids
as the gamers will be playing from their homes once
online gambling is legalized.
