Pennsylvania to allow multiple online gaming ‘skins’
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has approved a measure that will allow online gambling operators to run multiple ‘skins’ in the US state.
In October, Pennsylvania became the fourth state to officially legalise online gaming after Governor Tom Wolf signed an expansive gambling package into law.
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, the state’s regulatory body, is this month due to begin the licensing process for companies keen to offer online gaming services in the state.
Ahead of this, the organisation has posted Temporary Rules and Regulations 125-215, which address a number of rules related to various issues, including that of interactive gaming skins.
Kevin O’Toole, executive director of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, said: “What the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board did at its public meeting of April 4 was to approve temporary regulations that enable a very open and competitive market for internet gaming while at the same time assuring transparency and accountability for the consumers.
“Under these temporary regulations there is no limitation on the number of skins that a slot machine licensee may employ to deliver games, but every ‘skin’ that a casino offers must be branded in a manner that makes it clear that it is offered on behalf of the slot machine licensee consistent with language of the act.”
Last month, O’Toole talked up the chances of Pennsylvania opening its regulated online gaming market before the end of the year.
