Blackjack in Pennsylvania

With US state governments scrambling to stay afloat with declining revenue from taxes the states have begun passing laws to either expand or start legalizing gambling. State house members in Pennsylvania are currently voting on a bill that would a legalize and tax table games at slot machines casinos.

Pennsylvania lawmakers are currently discussing the states tax rate on casinos take from the table games including poker and blackjack. The bill is being led by democrats but is facing opposition from Republican senators but many outside observers believe this bill has a good shot to make its way through both houses and become law.

This is similar to Colorado which recently voted to expand their casinos by allowing them to stay open 24 hours a day, increase betting limits to $100 and adding roulette and craps. After the law went into effect, Colorado casinos saw an instant increase in traffic as well as revenue…Pennsylvania lawmakers are hoping for a similar outcome.
