No Online Super Bowl Betting; Erie's Casino Not Licensed to Take On-Site Wagers
While Pennsylvanians can bet on the Super Bowl this year, they will have to travel to Pittsburgh, Harrisburg or Philadelphia to do it.
A Supreme Court ruling last year opened sports betting in the state.
While casinos can take wagers online, the Gaming Control Board has not authorized any casino to do so.
That means there will not be online sports wagering options in time for the Super Bowl.
Six casinos statewide have been approved to accept sports bets, but Presque Isle Downs and Casino does not have a sports book license.
Sports betting brought in $2.3 million in tax revenue for the state last year.
